Bought this jacket a couple of years ago. are you kiddin' me. I was skeptical at first about shelling out the cash... but, this jacket does it all. super light weight and packable, yet keeps you warm in all conditions. I wear this alone in the summer, fall, and as a base layer in the winter. even wet, it keeps me warm.

the only downside is that it will rip and wear through quickly. this is an acceptable sacrifice you must make for the weight. a little nylon patch and you are back in business.

Let me first start with letting you know this is my first pair of snowshoes I have ever owned. But, I am impressed with them so far.

I use these every weekend on my trap line. I was a little skeptical that the plastic would not hold up, but I have been brutal on them in -30 degree weather, and they do not show a single sign of wear.

I am 6'0", 175lbs, with a size 10.5 foot. my boots that I wear are burly. these fit me just right. and I have never had to readjust my bindings.

If you are heavier, travel in deep light powder, or wear over a size 12 heavy boot, I would consider another pair.

I have owned several packs in the past, but this Granite Gear Contrail is by far the best. I recently spent two weeks living out of it hunting in Alaska, and it was perfect for day trips with about fifty pounds of gear. Perfect setup for skis and snowboards. Even with a heavy load it still rides tight to the body. I highly recommend this to anyone in search of a day pack that they want to keep their gear dry.
