These Shoes are Money!! These are the lightest and most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. Great for back country or racing. Binding system also works really well and easy to get on and off.

LOVE Northern Lites!!They really are the best! Well built and the absolute lightest snowshoes. The owners are phenomenal and offer superb customer service. I can’t wait to purchase more sets for family members!! Thank you!! Customer for life!

Recently purchased these snow shoes as “loaners” for people to join our family that don’t own their own. These are the 6th pair of Northern Lites (multiple models) we own and love that they are half the weight of the competitors. Keep up the great work!

Super Durable. Must Have! My Northern Lite Elite snowshoes are everything I wanted and more. They are so light I forget they are on my feet. They look cool, the quality and craftsmanship justify the price and honestly they should sell for more since they are guaranteed to last

We finally had enough snow to take my new Tundras out for a walk. They are much lighter than expected. Lacing up was easy, They fit snug to the boots, handled the uneven terrain and drifts with no issues. They are a bit wider than I am use to, adjusted my stride to avoid stepping on the insides of the shoes. Overall very pleased, was worth the wait

Extremely Lightweight. I bought these for my wife for Valentines Day. She loves the light weight and the ease of using the bindings. They are replacing a "cheaper" pair of snowshoes she has had for a couple years and are worn out. These are quality and built to last. Made in the U.S.A.!
