Snowshoe Size Chart
The snowshoe size chart can help when choosing a snowshoe. There are a two important things to keep in mind, size of shoe and weight along with equipment. Most 20 inch youth models have a maximum weight of 80 pounds, while 21 inch snowshoes go up to 125 pounds. This continues as the weight goes up along with shoe size. The 22 inch snowshoe will go up to 150 pounds, the 25 inch are rated up to 175 pounds, the 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 better snowshoe for deep powdery snow while the V-Tail snowshoes are easier to walk on packed down or icy snow.
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.
