I will give this snowshoe a 5 star rating. I am impressed with the binding and overall quality of this product. It is also worth mentioning that they are made in the United States and they have a life time warranty. I like the way they track in the snow and I can slip them off or on very easily with this binding. I own several pairs of winter boots and they quickly adjust to any boot I happen to be wearing at the time. I have always used wooden snowshoes but I have to say that these are more comfortable and they hold me up in deep snow as well as my 10x56 inch shoes.
