Description

We consider soft, 100% cotton lampwick bindings the ideal binding for traditional snowshoes when using soft footwear like our snowshoe moccasins (note: this style of binding tends to slip off a stiff boot – try our leather bindings for use with boots). Lampwick bindings are extremely simple and lightweight, and allow you, with a little practice, to slip in and out of your snowshoes hands-free! Bindings are pre-cut to an appropriate length and sealed with beeswax. Bindings come with instructions.

Sizing Information

  • We use 50″ lampwick for ourselves on our moccasins, and thus consider this to be “standard” length for soft footwear;
  • Those with large feet (Mens 11+) should select “Large” (60″) length;
  • Though we haven’t tried it ourselves, we’ve had others report success using lampwick on stiff boots.  XL (70″) may be required for stiff boots.

    After army surplus bindings in Boy Scouts in Minnesota in the 60s, Sherpa style mountaineering bindings and clawed snowshoes for stiff climbing boots in the 70s-80s, and lightweight bungee bindings and snowshoes for the various large boots in dogsledding and racing since then, a return to old Stowe Canoe rawhide snowshoes, mukluks and the simple, fitted Indian Hitch binding is elegant and refreshing! Your beeswax solution to raveling wick ends is ingenious. I also spray soaked my wicking in silicone Camp-Dry to keep moisture from wet snow from freezing the bindings stiff. I’m ordering more wicking to set up another pair of traditional snowshoes for my larger mushing/camping mukluks! From Denali Park, Alaska.
