The Everest is aptly named. To conquer the highest peak in your neck of the woods, you need the right tools. This snowshoe was made for climbing, with a set of metal crampons that bite into the snowy hill. What’s more, its polymer deck provides lightness and comfort as snow easily glides off. This snowshoe was named 2014 Gear of the Year by Outside Magazine for it’s combination of features and its amazing functionality. It offers great traction, superb ergonomics, features designed to take on the steepest mountain, and all that at a surprising weight.
