The test Hoks are going back home soon, and after making sure I have all the relevant shots I’ll need for the BPL review, I cannot not share this one.
From left to right, weights are per foot:
Atlas Run snowshoe, 1 lb 5.5 oz
MSR Lightning Ascent (W’s, 25″), 1 lb 12 oz
Tubbs Sierra (30″), 2 lb 6.5 oz
125 cm Altai Hok w/ Voile Mountaineer, 2 lb 12 oz
Marquette BC w/ Voile Mountaineer, toe wedge, heal pad and lift, 5 lb 5.5 oz
185 cm Karhu Guide w/ Voile Mountaineer, heal pad and lift, 3 lb 12 oz
Bear in mind that the Marquettes and Guides would need skins for full functionality.
(The X-Trace universal bindings are 18.5 oz a foot.)
