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.
While completing the first winter thru-hike of the Ice Age Trail I relied on the Northern Lites Backcountry Snowshoes. The bindings are simple and easy to use with gloved hands and quick transition times between snowshoes and regular shoes were easily attainable. When crushing out miles in the snow, the simple binding provides a natural, solid, and feather light feeling and the metal claws underneath grab at the terrain. Whether carried on a backpack or worn, they tend to go unnoticed. Mike Summers on Nov 21st 2017
These snowshoes work very well. They don't look fancy but they are light, bindings work much better then all the fancy bindings other brands have, and they grip well for general snowshoeing. K.T. on Feb 23rd 2017
