Good snowshoe

This is a great snowshoe when considering the cost, design, traction, and bindings. The 10 series is the entry level mountain terrain type snowshoe offered from Atlas snowshoes. The 11 and 12 series are more agressive and come with stainless steel crampons, but these upgrades are reflected in their price point.

One of best features of this snowshoe is its bindings and toe locator. The toe locator takes all the guess work out of positioning your foot on the snowshoe, and when properly adjusted feels secure and snug.

The only thing I would knock these snowshoes for is the little plastic clips used to secure the excess rubber and nylon straps from the bindings. Sometimes when walking in deep snow for extended periods the excess strap works loose, however, in a 3 hour trek this happend about 2 or 3 times.

Overall this is a great entry level mountain terrain type snowshoe.

Awesome Snowshoe

Great snowshoes, the binding are rock solid and once adjusted don't need any re-tightening, good traction although not for serious mountaineering, for something like that i would go with the 12 series

but these are a great combination to take you from packed trails to off trail powder along with some moderate steeps and this years model has been upgraded with a heel bar to help with the slopes

an overall great snowshoe for overall conditions

would give it 5 stars, but the first few times i used them the binding were a bit difficult to get out of, now that i've used them though the binding has spread a bit and my foot slides in and out easily, so they are actually a 5 star product after a bit of use

Does the job, and does it well!

I'm a greenhorn to snowshoeing, but these did just marvelously up at Crater Lake. Went through a variety of conditions from deep snow to shallow, crunchy hard stuff (I know, not the best for brand new teeth).

Only complaint is that they seem to point inward as I walk, though that may just be my gait. I'm 5'10" about 150 lbs. and I think I could have done just fine with the shorter pair. I got the 30's because I want to eventually carry a pack on trips and was on the line between sizes @ 150 lbs.

Worked just fine!

First used these in Yellowstone hiking up to Tower Falls. Some icy patches, and the footing was secure. Deeper snow in the Little America area and even though I am 6'2'' and 215, plus a large pack, walking was easy, these shoes supported the weight with little problem.
Up graded to these from an older pair of 1030's to get the heel bar, as I felt some leg fatigue climbing in the Castle Peak area near Lake Tahoe. Haven't used them on a climb as yet but am looking forward to it.

Good shoes, good purchase

These shoes performed very well in a variety of snow conditions on a recent spring hike. Traction was excellent even on hard ice. Wet snow did not clump-up on the bottom of the shoes - problem I've had with previous shoes.
Entry and exit is really easy due to a well thought-out design that was easy to do with gloves on. Very happy with these shoes!

Great Snowshoes

The climbing bar on these snowshoes works great for backcountry snowboarding. I can't wait to get out and use these nice shoes again! It was well worth the extra money.

Negative Reviews:

Good design let down by poor fastenings

Attention to detail would change this from a mediocre product into a great one. The fastener design, both on the heel and over the boot is not positive enough, and I continually have to stop and tighten them up.
