Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These snowshoes worked really well for a beginner trip except one major flaw - the bindings are just terrible. The webbing tends to loosen up a bit while walking which wouldn't be a huge issue except that then the plastic piece around your toe doesn't stay as tight to your boot. This means that when you're stepping and the binding rotates through the frame, it gets caught on the way back up. It's a pretty poor design and you'll notice that the newer non-kit Xplore model has a different binding type.
