These snowshoes are great all around snowshoes. the heel raiser works great when climbing steeper slopes. They don't seem to slip at all. The 180 degree pro binding works great. You can get in and out of the bindings very fast. One buckle and your in. When you get the bindings fit to your boots you don't have to adjust anything just slip your foot in and you walking. Great snowshoe for not a big dent in your wallet.
