This Snowshoe had taken me into many winter adventuress. The crampons are built exceptionally well, and the SMS is fantastic. It hardly feels like you have snowshoes on your feet. This is a great introductory product.

Since i couldn't afford Tubbs, I chose atlas and I am exceptionally happy with the product. It has allowed me to do backpacking in the high country with up four feet of firm powder. For soft powder backpacking, I would suggest going with the 9-36.

Great product at an unbeatable price.

I have had very few complaints about these snowshoes thus far. The biggest thing that I have learned is to adjust them correctly the first time, if the toe is in exactly the right spot it shouldn't feel like you have snowshoes on at all (as said above).
These snowshoes can be carried together better with a few rubber bands along with the Atlas clips and are not heavy or awkward attached to your pack.

MarmadukeFor the price? A winner

Voted 5/5

Less than $110 so how can you go wrong? Very light weight. the bindings are pretty easy to strap into. The crampons are noticebly thinner than the Tubbs and the "suspension system" is not as heavy duty as the Tubbs so time will tell with wear how long they last. But they are very comfortable and at $105 compared to $250 or so for the Tubbs. A very nice entry level shoe.
