Recent Hiking Snowshoe Reviews

MSR Evo Ascent

rated 5 of 5 stars Great technical snowshoes that are still fun for a simple day on the trail. MSR Evo snowshoes are bombproof. They don't break under normal use, and I can't imagine what kind of abuse you'd have to put them through in order to damage them. The design is great for climbing (attention fellow peak-baggers). They're plastic, so the same main body of the snowshoe that keeps you afloat is also molded to give you traction. The metal crampons and traction bars are aggressive enough for all snowshoeing situations. Full review

Redfeather Trek Series

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Well made. Decent bindings. A little fiddly with gloves on. These are my first snowshoes, so take everything with a grain of salt. They seem well put together, and being a novice user I probably ran them into a number of things I shouldn't have, but haven't had any issues with them. I'm right at the top of the weight range listed for them, and I wish I could have got the next size up (they were on a season-end sale, so I got the only ones that fit me at all).  I used them in Northern Minnesota… Full review

MSR Denali

rated 5 of 5 stars Awesome and durable. Easy to put on for the first time snowshoer, after a product demo the year before at a local ski resort.  Stayed on tight. Great binding system and the little lift up kick stand was a great help, too on those inclines going up. I also go the extenders, but did not have the need to use them yet. I also have the snowshoe bag that keeps everything organized, including the extenders and snowshoe poles. Very satisfied and would recommend to anyone. A great way to see areas you hike… Full review

MSR Evo Ascent

rated 4 of 5 stars Technical ascents (angled, icy terrain) are much easier with these lightweight, strong snowshoes. If you want to move fast and get above the crowds, these are the shoes for you. The design of these snowshoes is clearly targeted to climbers and mountaineers. And, they are equally at home on packed, icy winter hiking trails. Where they aren't enough is in deep powder with a heavy pack. There, you need a bigger footprint. The tails work well enough, and I like the narrow width which keeps them comfortable… Full review

Tubbs Men's Wilderness Series

rated 4 of 5 stars Good all-around snowshoe that's worked well for me on both gentle terrain and in the backcountry. The bindings are easy to use and the crampons provide adequate traction on hard packed snow. I bought these snowshoes around Christmas and used them through the 3-month winter hiking season. I found that they performed well in a variety of environments, from powder snow on level trails to steeper, icy uphills. Although they don't have the traction as some of the "alpine" models, they worked well for… Full review

Louis Garneau Men's Freeshape FX Pulse II

rated 1 of 5 stars I bought these snowshoes since the quality of the bindings look great and I liked the shape. They seemed that they would be great to be walking on any type of snow. After only 2 or 3 outings with these, I noticed that the deck was splitting on the sides wither the rivits join. Upon closer inspection, I noticed many tears all over the deck.... It seemed like the snowshoe was literally falling apart. I brought them back to the shop where I got them and was told that this was a re-occuring problem… Full review

MSR Denali

rated 5 of 5 stars Other brands pale in comparison. Other brands pale in comparison to these shoes. After trying out several other shoes that I kept constantly haveing to adjust I found these. Now my wife and I own and enjoy them. The only complaint is on some hard pack snow they are very noisy, but hey, on hard pack you really don't need snowshoes on anyway. Full review

Easton Men's Artica Hike

rated 4 of 5 stars Love the binding sytem! Quality products used on the snowshoes. Binding system easy to use, secure. Pull loop on binding does have excess material hanging to catch on something. I would of preferred a crampon with more bite. Used 4 times since this review. 8 1/2 out of 10. Full review

MSR Denali

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Tough, suits any size of person or body weight, great on packed trails or in deep snow. Inexpensive, but will last for many years. (Denalis on Coliseum Mountain) Sorry to see the Denalis have been discontinued, but the new Evo line seem to be almost identical. I've used my Denalis for a few years, under all kinds of conditions, from short dayhikes to longer walks, and have had the opportunity on group hikes to compare them with many other brands. Others flip snow up your back, or are too cheap… Full review
