Check out this peice of gear that some of the Scouts own and use when they go backpacking. Read below to see what they have to say about it!
These are a solid set of mid-weight, rugged and versatile snow shoes. My favorite feature is the easy on / easy off ski-boot style ratcheting strap system. Second favorite thing is the heel lift bar that makes inclines feel like walking up stairs.
Lightweight and durable pair of snowshoes from MSR. Easy in and out clipping thanks to the snowboard-like bindings. If buying again, I would consider the other elastic style bindings that seem to be more alpine/backcountry. The snap binding that these have seem less durable, yet I've never had an issue with them.
