    snowshoe bag Metiral

    Whats the best fabric to use to make a bag for my snowshoes? Canvas. I know I want it to be wp or at least wr. I don't want it to heavy. And how do you stop the teeth from ripping the bag?
    Can you tell I'm new to snowshoeing.

    I use an MSR snowshow bag. It's made from heavy cordura.

    I guess have the S-shoes cleet to cleet, and toe to heel, and strap them together,
    before puting them in a bag.

    or strap them one each side to your pack, cleet out.

    Look for marine canvas , or outdoor upholstery material, should be Water resistant at least and hold up to wear and tear..
