        Too Short

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Post Hole Snowshoe Bag:

        Web listing states that the bag will fit 36 inch snowshoes, tag on the bag said 30 inch. My Atlas 1235 snowshoes come to the top of the bag and it will not close. should be fine with 30 inch snowshoes.

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Post Hole Snowshoe Bag:

            This bag is actually only 34" so there is no way it can fit up to 36" snowshoes. My snowshoes are only 33" but even then it is hard to get the mouth of the bag closed, let alone rolled down like it should. Second, the bag is way too narrow. You really have to jam the shoes in there. Whoever designed this forgot that snowshoes aren't completely flat. You've got the crampon on one side and the binding on the other, plus the tips and tails are usually upswept. That creates even more problems with closure because the upsweep of the tips (or tails) forces the bag open near the mouth (see my photo) making it hard to get the mouth closed and to have enough material to get the top rolled down even part of one roll. Finally, the shoulder straps are positioned on the bottom half of the bag. So with backcountry type snowshoes that are longer, the pack is going to extend way up past your head. It is totally unbalanced and top heavy and flops around because there is no internal frame (admittedly, it's only a $25 bag). And while there is a little padding, it is not enough to help when the bag is jumping around on you. Maybe this would work for smaller snowshoes (less than 25") but not for backcountry shoes.

                Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Post Hole Snowshoe Bag:

                This is not a good design, at least for larger backcountry-type snowshoes. EMS says this fits up to 36" snowshoes. The bag is only 34" long. My snowshoes are 33" (Easton calls them a 30" model but they are a little longer) and I could barely get the mouth of the bag closed, then there wasn't enough material left to roll down the opening like it is designed to do. Plus, whoever designed this didn't take into account that snowshoes are not flat. You've got the crampon on one side the buckles on the other, plus the tail and tips have an upward sweep. The bag is way too narrow so you really have to jam the shoes in there. And the fact that the tips are upswept means they push the mouth end opens mean so that it is just that much hard to get the mouth of the bag closed properly, let alone have enough material to roll it down like it should be. Finally, the straps are positioned on the bottom half of the bag so that if you are carrying longer snowshoes the bag extends way up behind your head making the whole thing top heavy. Since the pack has no internal stiffener or significant padding (understandable given the price, but still) it just ends up being unbalanced and swinging all over the place on your back and is not comfortable to walk with. Maybe this would work well with smaller snowshoes (less than 25") but it is worthless for larger ones.
