Quality snowshoes that you won’t have to sell your record collection for.
- Lightweight, strong 6061 aluminum frame stands up to abuse when you scramble across the occasional rock outcropping
- V-Frame construction allows the shoe to track straight in deeper snow; tapered tail pulls less snow as you step
- Spring Loaded Suspension system absorbs impact and lets your foot flex naturally, which means the crampon digs deeper on steep, icy ascents
- Wrapp Plus binding offers a customizable fit, extra arch support, and one-pull UniLoop buckle design allows for easy adjustments on trail
- Nytex decking wraps around frame for a taught fit and increased surface area
- Stainless steel, All-Trac toe crampons feature pointed prongs for superior grip; stainless steel aft traction provides lateral stability and edging
- Heel-lift bar relieves stress on calves during ascents by compensating for slope angle and loss of traction

I am 5'9" and weigh around 170. Should I go with the 25 in or 30 in?
The max load for the 25 inch is 200 lbs, take into factor all the gear you might be lugging around and you are getting towards the top of the max load. Considering the two sizes are less than a half pound difference in weight and the added float you will get out of the 30 inches I would suggest sizing up.

I am a avid fly fisherman, and I have decided to keep doing it year round to improve my skills and area knowledge. We just got a helluva winter storm here in South Dakota, and I discovered today it is not easy to get to my "honey holes" with this deep snow. Will these work good for me while wearing wading boots (with cleats) in gnarly backcountry terrain?
I think they would handle the terrain well but if you are using cleats like the ones I have (Patagonia stud kit) then those will chew up the decking of the snowshoes and destroy them in quick order. Might be worth throwing the wading boots in the pack and then just using some sort of winter boot like a Sorel to get to the spot and then putting on the wading boots. Not ideal but it may keep the good times rolling through the winter and not completely destroy the snowshoes.

I currently have this snowshoe and need some warranty work on them, any ideas on addressing this problem...this is a fantastic snowshoe and had worked great.
If you bought them on BC initiate a chat with a BC rep. They are good with warranty issues. If purchased elsewhere you will probably want to contact them or go straight to the manufacturer.

New to this. I'm looking for a versatile snowshoe that would be good for both groomed trails as well as lower pitch inclines. Would this snowshoe it the part?
Hey there, yeah this snowshoe would fit your needs well... if you are strictly recreation and just getting started, you might want to check out places like Costco, Walmart, etc for non name brand snow shoes for a lot cheaper...
I really love these snowshoes. I've used Redfeather, Tubbs and US Army Mountain snowshoes and the Atlas are by far the easiest to adjust and have excellent build quality. Living in Montana (and 12 years in Alaska), I place a high premium on backcountry gear that is simple to use when you are tired and so cold that your fingers are stiff. These bindings pass that test very well, something I can not say about the design commonly found on MSR and Redfeather shoes (at least in my experience).
When you strap these guys on it doesn't feel like you've added any weight to your feet. The straps work quickly and deliver a secure fit that is easily adjustable. The traction on these things is super burly and will give you sure footing and everything from fine powder to the occasional ice patch. The climbing bar is a nice feature but a steep sustained incline is needed for them to be worth pulling up. At least a few hundred yards of consistent up hill. Otherwise they push your weight too far forward putting unnecessary strain on you calves. All in all a great set of snow shoes.

I have a pair of Atlas 1130's and am looking for a backpack to haul them around. Without using a lot of awkward and clumsy straps and bungees, etc. is there any pack that is designed carry snowshoes vertically - don't want to carry them horizontally - they get caught in the branches, etc. Thanks in advance!!
Any of the larger Dakine packs will carry them just great... Try the Guide, Poacher or Blade...
I've carried mine vertically on my Dakine Heli Pack too.
Ive rigged them in my Black Diamond Covert too
Ya I have the poacher and its not bad.
