Bulgarian company Any Exit has created a pair of inflatable snowshoes for backcountry snowboarders. As carrying regular snowshoes isn't always practical, the inflatable snowshoes offer some sweat relief to booting up or hiking out in waist deep snow.
The inflatable snowshoes are compact, light and strap securely to your feet. The two pocket size housing bags can be thrown in your pack or attached to your pants or jacket. Each bag carries an inflatable snowshoe with room enough for the inflation pump.
To use, simply pull out the snowshoes, inflate with the hand pump and fix to your boots via the straps. Once you have arrived at the line you plan to take, simply deflate and throw them back in your pack. You are ready to ride.
I am wondering how much these inflatable snowshoes will actually keep you from post holing as you don't have the surface area of a regular snowshoe but you do have a bit of air inflation on your side.
