  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: This optional accessory essentially turns a single pair of snowshoes into two pairs. The float tails increase the shoes’ surface areas, and provide additional floatation when conditions/load demand it. Well built.

    Dislikes: A little expensive

  • eric d. grand junction CO

    Likes: Worked out great in deep snow. Connecting the tails to the snow shoes was very easy. I was able to do it with one hand.

    Dislikes: The price could be cheaper

  • Paul D. Ballston Lake NY

    Likes: The tail extensions are a very sensible and useful addition. They allowed me to buy the 25" Lightning Ascents rather than the 30" and still not have to worry about flotation. They're easy to install and remove, but once on, they stay put. I probably will never take them off, but it's good to know that if I find myself in a very narrow, twisting, obstacle-filled path, I can instantly make my shoes 5" shorter.

    Dislikes: Nothing
