How to Buy Snowshoes

How to Buy SnowshoesTo get around you will require snowshoes for your winter camping or hiking. Snowshoes are suitable for hiking in the wilderness letting you float above the snow and tackle those ascents and descents along the trails. When picking your snow shoes be sure to check out the weight restrictions as for some models you may also require tails.

So how to buy snowshoes:

Your snowshoe frame should be made of aluminum, very hollow and light.

For the decking coated nylon is lighter and will last longer than plastic.

Essential on mixed terrain, a crampon is a sharp piece of metal that pivots and digs into the snow for easy climbing. Your binding could be a simple strap which is easy to replace or the snowboard ratchet system.

Many include trekking poles but if they don't you can use your hiking poles. Also some come with a carrying case which I personally find useful.

There are 5 different models listed below and with the exception of the MSR Evo Trail they come is a variety of sizes for different weights so you can get a pair with the best fit for you. Check them out below.
