Faber Snowshoe Mountain Master 828
Faber snowshoes are made in Canada by people who know snow! This is Faber's high-end expedition model for tough use in extreme conditions. Its Arcatech Frame, which uses a CNC bending machine to add camber (arch) to the frame, gives better rebound action, flotation, and the easiest gait. With highly aggressive crampons you get great traction on tough terrain, and the heel lift reduces strain on the calves when walking uphill. The double ratcheting binding is easy entry/exit, and the abrasion resistant TPR (thermo plastic rubber) decking is UV treated and made to withstand temperatures as low as -76°C (-105°F).
To size correctly, use the following chart. Because this chart is for packed snow conditions and we have very dry snow here in Saskatchewan, we recommend going a size bigger than the chart says if you will be off-trail.

|8 x 28"||5.5 lbs||200 lbs|
