The recalled snowshoes have an aluminum frame with Boa bindings and a deck made from polyethylene with “ADVENTURE ADJ 25-30” printed on the side and “L.L. Bean” printed on the front. They were sold in red (Carbon Chili) and blue (Glacier/Teal) and can be worn with men’s or women’s winter boots. The recalled snowshoe package includes the recalled snowshoes, adjustable snowshoe poles and a bag.


The firm has received four reports of the plastic on the snowshoes cracking. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the snowshoes and contact L.L. Bean for a full refund.
