As a general recommendation, our snowshoes come in three sizes to accommodate three weight ranges:


Your perfect snowshoe size depends on a few factors. First, the more your body, your gear, and your clothing weigh as a whole, the more flotation you’ll need - thus, a bigger size. To be safe, account for an additional 10-15lbs for your gear and clothing when selecting your shoe size. 

Second, consider the snow conditions. If you’re snowshoeing on established trails and packed snow, you’ll want a smaller, more nimble size. On the flip, if you’re exploring off-trail with fresh snow, you’ll want a bigger size/more flotation.

    Great Service

    Well the order process and shipping were outstanding!

    These are a gift so won't know how they fit-work until later.

    Bought 2 pairs, for me and my gf and our first time snow shoeing and these worked wonders, man. Made hiking up hill so much easier, we are back country snowboarders and this is a definite necessity for us now
