  1. Greetings!

    I have what is likely a silly question, but I must…..

    As i am looking at the 10×56 Alaskan Neoprene or the 10×46 Cross-Country Neoprene, i do not see bindings attached?

    Do bindings have to be purchased separately? If so, why do the aforementioned models have “Neoprene” in their description?

    In advance, thank you

    1. Everyone has their own preference for binding types so the snowshoes and bindings are sold separately. We offer snowshoes woven in either rawhide or neoprene. The weaving material is reflected in the description. Bindings are available in either neoprene or leather. If you have any additional questions, let us know or drop us a line at orders@iversonssnowshoes.com

  2. These are the gold standard! I live in Montana and have used various brands of snowshoes for decades in our deep snow. Until 3 years ago I used main stream brands of metal shoes, and often fought to stay afloat. After buying a pair of Iverson Alaskans, I do not have to pick and choose my outings based on snow conditions. They take my 230 lbs anywhere anytime, and the quality is top notch, everything just works perfectly every day every time. The customer service (Jim Baker) has been phenomenal, answering my questions before and after the purchase. Advice for anyone trying to decide on length… don’t worry about it-I never notice it is there, and any extra weight is offset by how much “I don’t” post hole.

    1. The 10X56 Alaskan model is rated to 250 pounds. The weight rating is primarily based on flotation. As long as the shoe frame is not ‘bridged’ by putting the toe or heal (or both) on a high spot such as a rock or log the frame will carry more than the rated capacity although the snowshoe will sink a little more.

  3. Good morning I really need to update my snowshoes so will the neoprene webbing be a strong as the rawhide? I’ve always had rawhide but I like the price of the neoprene. In the Alaskans.10/56

    1. The neoprene is as strong and is maintenance free. With proper maintenance a rawhide snowshoe can outlast the neopree but they are both very durable and will offer years of use.

    1. Rawhide shoes should be monitored for wear and refinished with a spar varnish or polyurethane. If the rawhide gets wet, it can stretch and break so it is important to keep it sealed. We use a specially blended formula designed to keep snow from sticking to it but any off-the-shelf product would do the trick.
