web_GI_BestInShowOR_lgAt this month’s Winter Outdoor Retailer Market in Salt Lake City, Utah, several media outlets presented “Best In Show” awards to Boa partner brand Louis Garneau.

Louis Garneau’s Yeti snowshoe, featuring the Boa-powered Contact Pro Harness System, was received the “Best In Show” award from leading outdoor gear-review website, The Gear Institute. Say the website’s editors: “Louis Garneau’s Yeti Snowshoe is the first we’ve seen to use a Boa System instead of straps and buckles, and the system is much lighter than most.” Read the full story here: http://www.gearinstitute.com/best-in-class/item/best-of-outdoor-retailer-awards.

The Boa Closure System found on the Yeti high-performance backcountry snowshoe (pictured here) applies even, secure adjustment to the super-light weight binding, while also allowing maximum adjustability in order to accommodate most footwear types–from running shoes to winter boots.

Louis Garneau’s Course running snowshoe received Gear Junkie’s coveted “Best in Show” award. “Amongst the lightest made, the Louis Garneau Course snowshoes touch the scale at just 720 grams per pair (…) Bonus: A webbing shoe harness and turn-to-tighten Boa Technology dial let you wear any of your normal trail-running shoes in the Course,” wrote Gear Junkie in his review.

The Course (below) features Louis Garneau’s Contact Lite Harness with two Boa dials–one to adjust forefoot fit, and a second to secure the heel. This dual-adjustment design ensures natural foot positioning and running stride.
