SmallFoot Inflatable Snow Shoes
If you don’t want to look like Nanook of the north on your next trek through virgin snow, the SmallFoot Inflatable snowshoe may be the answer. Unlike conventional snow shoes, SmallFoot uses air to provide a natural feeling of stability when walking and distributes weight evenly. But their greatest strength is portability. Uninflated, they stow away in two mini bags with a total weight of only 970g; inflate them, however, and they act like full sized snow shoes, bearing up to 120 kg of weight. You can run, turn and even walk backwards without a problem, and they work with any type of shoes over powder, packed snow, icy terrains (thanks to detachable crampons), and level to moderately steep regions.
