Great snowshoes. They are the only pair I've owned so I can't really compare them to any others but they perform well enough that I wont be looking that get anything else.
The only thing I could really complain about is the binding system can be pretty annoying, but if you just spend sometime to properly adjust them to your boot then you should be good. I have had a problem with the ends coming loose of the clips that are supposed to hold them in place, but the binding doesn't come loose from this; it is just annoying.
