Voted “The Best Running Snowshoe” by Backpacker Magazine, the Vapor™ is built for speed. The snowshoe of choice for The Redfeather Snowshoe Racing Team, this is the ultimate trail runner’s fitness snowshoe. This featherweight is also one of Redfeather’s strongest snowshoes. The Vapor™ is featured at 21 inches long and supports up to 190 lbs.

The Vapor™ features a modified, raised V-tail design that virtually eliminates any drag during a running stride. The Hypalon II Cross Country Bindings cinch down to any athletic shoe or hiking boot for flexibility and range of motion. The Vapor’s Hypalon II decking is Redfeather’s lightest, yet strongest technical decking. The final speed ingredient is the Eagle 360 powder coated stainless steel crampon/talon system, our most durable crampon available. Put it all together in a 6000 Series Aircraft Grade Aluminum frame and you have the fastest shoe on snow.

Sizing Chart

sizeChart

When choosing a snowshoe shoe size isn’t all that important. They are rated for the weight of the person. 20 inch youth models go up to maximum of 80 pounds, 21 inch snowshoes go up to 125 pounds, 22 inch go up to 150 pounds, 25 inch are rated up to 175 pounds, 30 inch shoes go up to 220 pounds, and 35 or 36 inch snowshoes are rated for over 220 pounds. The typical round tail snowshoe is a little better snowshoe for deep powdery snow and the V-Tail snowshoes are a little easier to walk in. Women’s snowshoes are generally about 1 inch narrower than men’s. Women generally have a narrower stride than men. Remember to add the weight of your clothes and a pack if you plan to carry one when snowshoeing. The boots you wear depend on what type of use. Redfeather would recommend warmer ones for walking or hiking and lighter ones for aggressive snowshoeing or running. This is a general sizing guide for those who need help figuring out what will be the best snowshoe size for you.

 

If you are planning on snowshoeing on trails or older more packed snow and you are close in weight to the next size down you can certainly use the smaller size. If you snowshoe in the back country with more powdery snow you definitely need to keep to the sizing ratings for weight.

 

If you look over all this information and still are uncertain talk to the professionals.

 

Contact a Redfeather dealer or Redfeather direct and usually they can put you on the right track.
