Snowshoeing is a great outdoor winter activity for people who do not have the balance required for skiing and ice skating. It is relaxing to be out in the silent woods and great exercise to stomp around in the snow. Snowshoes can be rented in many places where cross country skiing takes place.
However, I found myself doing it so much that I decided to purchase a pair of my own. I am very happy with my purchase as they have proven to be strong and durable.
Remember that you will need a good pair of winter boots to strap them on to. The bindings have nylon straps that criss-cross in a Z pattern and have buckles on the sides so that they are very easy to strap on different size shoes. A friend of mine want to try them out, and with her smaller feet, she had no trouble adjusting the bindings to fit.
A heel strap holds your foot tightly in place and has a simple toggle-activated buckle. I can get these snowshoes on and off even with my winter gloves on because the buckles are so big. I really like this feature because my fingers don't need to free while fiddling in the snow anymore.

The frames are made out of aluminum which keeps them very lightweight. I have tried the wooden, tennis racquet shaped snowshoes and found that they are much heavier. With my new ones, my legs do not get tired as quickly and I can stay out longer. These snowshoes are also quite narrow so that I don't find myself stepping on them.
The stainless steel crampons are great for climbing up and down hills which are sometimes slippery. They are also powder-coated to prevent snow and ice from building up on them.
These snowshoes have a live action hinge at the back to lift the tail out of the snow with each step to add mobility and speed. I can run for short distances in these as well to improve my workout.
I find that snowshoeing works best on crunchy snow but these shoes are also wide enough to work on the fluffy stuff. I have never had a problem with sinking down more than a few itches. They come in four different lengths to fit people up to 220 pounds. The Redfeather Hike snowshoes are worth a look if you are looking to purchase a set of your own.
