The Redfeather Women's Hike Snowshoe was designed to provide a snowshoeing experience that is easy on a woman's hips, knees and joints. Because a woman has a slightly narrower stride than a man, Redfeather created the framework of this snowshoe to be in harmony with that narrow stride. The result is a woman's snowshoe that will provide hour after hour of hiking and recreational snowshoeing enjoyment. The Live Action Hinge on the Hike for Women picks the tail of the snowshoe up with each step for added mobility and speed. The Control Binding System is a rugged design with quick adjust nylon webbing that ensures a secure fit and superior lateral support.
