Default Ladies Snowshoes @ REI - Good Deal

I just purchased ladies snowshoes Atlas 1027 Elektra -
Womens' 06 Closeout - reg price $216.00, marked down to 129.00 then 20% off that.

Thought I would share as snowshoeing season is here.

In my opinion, tubular frame snowshoes are only suited for more powder flotation, and flatter terrain, unless you are a very very strong snowshoer and your balance is great. Their crampons are not aggressive enough for the icy/hard packed snow slope. I've seen so many tubular frame snowshoe users had trouble with harsh backcountry terrain.

Mazegirl,
These will suit "my" needs perfectly - I am "no harsh backcountry snowshoer".
