Easy to get on and off

I am a beginner and these were easy to pull strap to tighten over my boot and they stayed secure. I love the back strap for the heel. This is usually the problem I have found with snoeshoes, especially when in gloves in the cold. It was easy to fasten and stayed secure in comparison to cheaper models. Great for the mid price.

Great Experience!

We used these snowshoes in a semi-packed trail near Steamboat Springs over Christmas. They were very easy to get on and of (blessing in cold weather!) Very comfortable, good traction, loved the risers for steep terrain. Overall, GREAT experience and many times while in use, I said "I LOVE my snowshoes!"

Go forever with no fatique

I walk off my front steps into deep snow and then climb from there. No trail. The steep, icy, and brushy conditions are a easy to maneuver. Lightweight for hours of hiking with no fatique. Easy on, easy off, make this shoe a delight for winter sporting.

Great for this beginner

I love these snow shoes. My only complaint is the back strap occasionally comes undone. But this only happens when I put them on in a hurry. Otherwise, they are perfect. This is my second season using them and they are very durable.

Negative Reviews:

Excellent except for one critical glitch

I used these snowshoes (which were a lovely Christmas present) on several day hikes in the southern Rockies. The snow I 'shoed on appeared fresh, but since the weather had been warm there had been periods of thaw-and-freeze that made it somewhat crunchy and firm. My hikes were mainly uphill one way, downhill on the way home.
Things I like about them: the uphill mode on the snowshoes. This is like a step you can prop up for your heel to rest on for better uphill trekking.
These snowshoes performed very well on the ultra-delicate powder. I sank, but manageably so.
Also, they're very beautiful.

Unfortunately, the one thing that makes these snowshoes a bad set is the heel strap mechanism. While the toe-box area is snug and secure, the plastic strap that holds the heel in from the back is worthless. It constantly undid itself (I must have bent down to re-cinch it every thirty feet), but what's worse is that upon closer inspection, the mechanism doesn't show the possibility of fully clasping shut. The pegs that are supposed to go into the holes in the strap can only make it about halfway in and at a 45-degree angle. Very odd. They should have made the back cinch-strap identical to the clean style up front. I will be mailing these back to REI.
