old magnesium snowshoe bindings
« on: January 14, 2018, 19:56:29 »
As the title says, I'm looking for a set of bindings for the old pattern snowshoes.  My old ones gave up the ghost. I bought some of the two part US style bindings, and they suck goat butt, to put it mildly.  Maybe my google fu is weak, but I couldn't get a line on any.

Cheers

Those are the two part type they issued to US troops. Ours were a single piece and were far easier to operate.

Just bouncing a couple ideas for you to check out
You could try Amazon. Amazon.ca seems to have everything maybe it has them.
You could also try Sail Outdoor Store  sail.ca or Cabelas  cabelas.ca
Just a last idea is Gagnon Sports gagnonsports.com
No guarantees, just spitballing ideas off the top of my head
Good Luck

Tom

Sorry! I am dimly trying to recall what the old school ones looked like.
