The Backcountry Rescue is structurally identical to the Backcountry. The only difference is the decking is cut from Rescue Orange material. At only 9” wide and 30" long, the Backcountry Rescue provides all the floatation most people will require in any snow conditions with easy walking. And at only 46 oz. per pair, the Backcountry Rescue 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.
Super lightweight, met the owner at the St. Paul Ice Fishing expo this year, very nice women. Bindings take a little longer, and slightly finicky, when compared to other companies. But, hands down the best snowshoes I have ever used. I actually forgot I was even wearings snowshoes a couple miles into our last snow hike. 5 out of 5 all day. Unknown on Jan 3rd 2017
These snowshoes are as tough as they are light weight. I use them for forestry work in NE MN and they have been the most impressive piece of equipment I have bought in quite some time. The customer service is also outstanding. If your looking for a pair in more mountainous regions the NL-snow leopard looks like it will be the better choice. Wish I would have discovered Northern Lights snowshoes years ago. The only improvement I would recommend is to make the heel strap & connector the same as the toe straps. The heal strap connector will freeze up in wet conditions. This however, would add some unwanted weight to the shoes. Thank You Northern Lights for an amazing product. Brian Clennon on Jan 1st 2017
