We accommulated about 160 inches of snow here in Maine this winter season. But that doesn't stop us to do a lot of things to have fun. To think that our snow bank is higher than me and almost reaching the roof of our garage, I was afraid that my hubby never find me in the snow if I get buried in there. Seriously, I tried to walk in the backyard one day and true, one step and I was literally buried up to my hips. But winter is fun. And hubby and I love to go ice-fishing in the frozen lakes. But we have to walk in deep snow into the woods to get to the lake. So what saves the day? Our L.L. Bean Winter Walker Snowshoes.
My mother-in-law gave my hubby and my 6 years old step-son each of its own pair of L.L. Bean snowshoes last winter. Knowing that it will be hard to reach the lake on foot, the snowshoes are our only hope to reach the lake without much struggle. So my husband brought his snowshoes and I borrowed my step-son's snowshoes and off we went ice-fishing. But that is beside the story. What I like about this L.L. Bean Winter Walker is - the quality. I don't have my own pair of snowshoes that is why I borrowed my step-son's. I am only 4 feet and 11 inches in height and weight about 130 pounds and for me to be able to use it with ease is a big deal. It was able to carry my weight despite the fact that it is built for kids. Yes, that snowshoes are for kids and designed to carry 25 to 60 pounds weight only. But since it is built with excellent material it was able to carry twice the weight of what it was really built for. I am happy with this product and can't wait to go hiking some other time before the snow thaws.
