Rated 4 out of 5 by NatBun Worked well enough!
My husband was very happy with the snowshoes and had a good time. The only problem was releasing the locking mechanism when attempting to get the shoes off. The lock would pack with snow and he had to dig it out with a knife. This operation had to be done sitting down. Need to make it so there is a quick release and doesn't pack with snow and ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GpaJimmy easy on and off
Couldn't be happier! Being new to snowshoeing and borrowing from a friend, finally made this purchase. The adjustment to my boots was easy. Strapping on and off easy. Deep snow is no problem with these snowshoes. I'm having fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by oldmanrunner good introductory snowshoes
I am a 70 year old longtime runner who was looking for an alternative exercise when it is too bad to run on the roads. I bought these snowshoes and on the first day walked over an hour. They are easy to put on and off and seemed easy to use. I walked in a park on trails and had no problems using them. The technique involved was easy to pick up and would recommend these to beginner showshoers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love2Work A great investment!
These snowshoes are just what we needed; lightweight, easy to put on/off/adjust, well designed & made with sturdy materials. Retired and living in northern Maine, we needed a way to get fresh air and exercise and snowshoeing through the woods was just the ticket opening up a world of discovery with lots of wildlife we didn't ordinarily see & animal tracks in the snow. We bought 3 pair and 2 sets of poles so visitors can enjoy them too. A great investment.

Nice looking and well made. We had an issue with the toe strap on this pair, and LL Bean express shipped out a new pair immediately. I was very impressed with the courteous customer service. We purchased 6 pair for Christmas gifts, and would recommend L L Bean to everyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Belle11 Stuck in the woods
I ordered these for my husband and myself. Couldn't wait for the first snowfall. Loved the look of them, much nicer than our old pairs which are still in good condition. After our first trek into the woods on a level trail, my husband's broke after a half hour of snowshoeing. He had to stumble home through the snow, carrying them. The strap attached to the metal bottom, broke. Of course LL Bean is sending out a new pair. I just hope it doesn't happen again or I'll go back to using the old ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mebrittan Great bindings, easy on, easy to adjust, easy off.
These snow shoes are so much better than my last pair. The range of adjustment in the bindings makes for a secure and comfortable fit and the shoes perform great even in icy conditions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Smorti 2nd pair of LLBean snowshoes to fall apart
I have had two pairs of LL Bean snowshoes fall apart on me in the middle of a hike in the woods... not a good situation. I don't hike "hard", i.e. just walk along normally, but the straps have pulled off from where they are attached to the metal. Both pairs were only about a year old, and were used maybe 15-20 times. I'm reluctant to return them again and get yet another pair that falls apart at an inopportune moment. Disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Plezed Surpassed my expdctations
I just had my frst outing on my new 30" bean winter walker snowshoes and can't give them enough praise! I am 80% disabled and putting them on was a piece of cake. Walking on top of.the snow with them was a pleasure both on the flats and inclines. The balance and light weight of these shoes only makes want to use them more. The quality construction and beans reputation of standing behind their product makes me wonder why I bothered looking elsewhere..

by bbshop Great !!!!
I have owned the ladies version of these shoes for two years now and love them. I have two friends that I shoe with who have different brands and I am so glad that I got the LL Bean brand as the quality and the EASE of putting them on and off is much better than theirs. I purchased this pair for my husband so he can come along... Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....
