Reviews
Pair of New U.S. Military Surplus Magnesium Snowshoes with Bindings is rated 4.596 out of 5 by 151.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made and practica Delivery time was exceptional. They came with instructions for the bindings which are not particularly clear. However you can find you tube help. I will replace the bindings with DIY Bindings over the summer as they are a bit clumsy to put on and seem to slip and require adjustments during use. Great to keep around to get to the main road after a really big snow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Expected They took me a mile in three foot snow. Fell down on the hills a couple of times. But it was my first attempt. Super sturdy. Excellent buy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty scratched up for being "new". Although these were new they definitely were pretty scratched up. They don't look used but had likely not been handled well. For the price, probably worth it but I'll need to get some paint to keep the corrosion down. Just purchase the used ones if you have the option because I assume they would be in similar condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the money, excellent service!! Received these yesterday. Watch the youtube by Joan Roco to install the bindings. Had them on in minutes. Took a quick walk around the yard with them. Keep me on top of 3 to 5 foot drifts with no problem at 6'3" 260 lbs. Never used snowshoes before and haven't face planted yet. Brand new condition, lightweight, well made. These will do anything I want to do for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good enough for the Marine Corps, and good enough for me. I am an ex-Marine reservist and spent four years in a heavy weapons cold weather mountain unit. These are the very shoes that we used during training exercises in the Sierra Nevadas, as well as north of the arctic circle in Norway, and during normal training in the mountains of West Virginia. If you are looking for a bomb-proof product with close to 40 years of practical field testing, this is the shoe for you.Mine came in pristine condition with ORIGINAL unused military bindings, which I prefer over the after-market bindings (plastic fasteners can shatter in temps below freezing, steel does not). These were Canadian made, and I assure you Uncle Sam paid a lot more than $40 for them (probably more like $300).Great product, great deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was as advertised (New Old Stock) including older style bindings. Was as advertised (New Old Stock) including older style bindings. Only minor complaint being a few nicks on the paint of the frames. I have yet to use them but they are for better or worse exactly as advertised , old military snow shoes. To emphasize the shipping box easily could fit a snow board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOUGH ! proven time and time again, I've had my first pair since 1995, shoed all over the northwest with not one issue on bindings or shoes. I've recently purchased two more pair for my job, don't fix something that's not broke ! Cant beat the price !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality Surprising quality, especially for the price. Big enough for a big man to use to carry a deer stand through deep snow - at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Really they're just cool. Sturdy enough to re-rig bindings to suit 2,000 gram hunting boots.
