This also comes in an 11 x 48 for $185.00. This Faber version of the beautiful and functional Ojibwa has a shorter, fuller front area and a longer tail than some others. I feel it is a bit more manageable in differing conditions and brush than the Iverson version but a touch less easy to stride along in than the Iverson version. One of the main reasons for the invention of the Ojibwa was the lack of long straight trees in the far north that are needed for the single piece frames. I carry several kinds of bindings so please look in the bindings section of this site for those choices.

I feel the Ojibwa makes it easy to push through brush, but is a bit more difficult to turn in those conditions than a round nosed shoe.  It has a bit less floatation in the nose and will dive in deep snow conditions on the steep down hills.  I feel it's greatest strength is the ease of striding; the double taper makes it easy not to step on the other snowshoe.  You can really move along in this one.
