Northern Lites say:
The Backcountry is the snowshoe of choice for mountaineering, backpacking, hiking, and general use over uncertain terrain. At only 9” wide and 30" long, the Backcountry provides all the floatation most people will require in any snow conditions with easy walking. And at only 46 oz. per pair, the Backcountry weighs less than the 22" and 25" models of ordinary aluminum frame snowshoes.
Comes with Northern Lites TruTrak binding system for sturdy traction through all conditions.
Northern Lites snowshoes have a fantastic reputation in the US, which is why we're proud to offer them in the UK and Europe.
