Faber Winter Rover - Snowshoes: Reviews

Sure, it looks a bit retro, but the Winter Rover offers more than just old-school charm. Best for gentle meanders on rolling terrain and packed trails, it features a bent white ash frame with a flexible plastic deck that delivers good float in powder, while low-profile aluminum toe and heel claws offer modest grip on crust and ice. Simple, ratcheting buckles secure the heel and toe, and a stop on the reinforced rubber pivot prevented the tip from hitting testers' shins. The binding isn't snug enough for serious terrain, but it fits most boots well enough for casual outings. 2.1 lbs, 24'', 28'', 30'', 36''; fabersnowshoes.com
