Make your own trail.
Fimbulvetr's Rangr Snowshoe is a far cry from the old wooden snowshoes of the past—its compact, lightweight design allows for a natural stride whether you're crossing a flat, open meadow or setting a steep trail up a mountainside. The Hytrel deck material gives each snowshoes a high strength-to-weight ratio, making them ideal for long-haul winter treks where you may need to carry a heavy pack. Stainless steel crampons attached to the pivoting binding ensure reliable purchase when you encounter a steep, icy slope during your next snowshoe hike.

- Q & A
Go big, maximum floatation.
Designed to support heavy loads in the backcountry. The large, but compact bearing surface, gives an unparalleled ratio between strength, low weight and maneuverability. RANGR is the original Fimbulvetr snowshoe, for maximum floatation in deep powder. An excellent tool for making first tracks in both flat and hilly terrain
Finally a quiet plastic Snowshoe...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My husband uses these mostly to access ice climbs in the backcountry. We live in the Adirondacks where the snow is often heavy and wet, or crusty and/or slippery. The crampons are burly enough to stand up to the icy conditions. They're lightweight and quieter than your typical plastic snowshoe, too. The binding is mounted on a multi-directional suspension system (what they call an all-direction hinge) which is ideal for walking on uneven terrain and sidehills. They have nice flex, even in really cold conditions. There are very few moving parts to break - overall really streamlined design.
Good design idea; Improve straps
Tried these snowshoes out twice. They were significantly light but the straps were too long and didn't tighten well around my shoes. I had to keep readjusting them and for some reason my foot kept sliding forward to were the tip of my shoe kept getting caught (really annoying, especially going downhill). If you have larger shoes, perhaps you won't experience the same issue.
