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 to easily handle most snow conditions. And at less than 3 lbs. per pair, the Backcountry weighs less than the 22" and 25" models of many other ordinary aluminum frame snowshoes. The Backcountry may be ordered with the traditional Northern Lites TruTrak binding system or the new Northern Lites Speed Binding when you need the ultimate convenience for getting your snowshoes on and off quickly.
