    Northern Lites Backcountry Snowshoe REVIEW

    I've been using the Northern Lite Elites for 2 years now. I get out a few times a week during the winter, I live at 10,200 feet in the rockies.
    The Elites have enough flotation for most women, even in deep snow. Bigger people should buy the larger version.
    The aluminum claws stink. I've broken one, which the company replaced. The traction on a traverse is not good at all, and steep downhills are more exciting than they need to be.
    This would be my ideal snowshoe with stronger, larger claws. The light weight does make a huge difference, as with most outside gear.

    PS- Duct tape applied to the clean, dry and warm metal will help prevent snow buildup on snowshoe claws.
