      I have some US military surplus bear claw wood, leather and gut ones like this. Nice and short for easy maneuvering, but wider than I'd like. If you are in open areas, longer and narrower work better.

        I really hate snow shoeing but it is probably because I only do it when I end up stuck on my quad after trying to go too far. It seems the more trick equipment I have on a quad the further in I get stuck. I keep a pair of Redfeathers on my quad during the winter time.

          i ended up getting everyone snowshoes for Christmas. (the 5 kids and the wife.) and new snow boots. we are planning on going today. after our youngest wakes up from his siesta. i'd like one myself but need to get everything ready.

            My hat's off to you. I don't EVER want to have a favorite pair of snowshoes.

                  I am surprised our resident Arctic Plumber who probably sleeps with snow shoes on did not chime in here.

                  Vince, where are you? Do you need someone to come dig you out of a snow drift?
