Comments about K2 POWDERIDGE Men's Crest Snowshoes:
I tend to be skeptical of specialty sports equipment bought from mass retailers so when I was looking to buy a pair of snow shoes, I checked a lot of specialty websites and read lots of reviews. Then, when a big snowstorm was forecast for the northeast, I decided I wanted a pair right then and rolled the dice on the Powderidge Crest 30 from Sports Authority.
I'm glad I did. I'm a beginner but I've used snowshoes before and these are the best I've tried. The bindings are easy to get into and out of, with two quick-release ratcheting straps and a heel strap. The aluminum frame is lightweight so they're easy to walk in.
As I said, I'm not an expert and there might be features that experienced snowshoers will look for but I don't know what they are. These are great snowshoes for a very reasonable price.
