Recent Hiking Snowshoe Reviews

MSR Men's Revo Ascent

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Built for climbing, but make a great all terrain snowshoe; these work well on or off trail. Great traction in most conditions including on hidden branches and other debris under the snow. Secure multi-strap bindings adjust to different boots easily. With a toe made for kicking and easy to use heel elevator these shoes live up to their name and excel at climbing but have some issues on descents due to the lack of a heel crampon. They have pretty good float and are worth considering for those hitting… Full review

Easton Women's Hike

rated 2.5 of 5 stars The Easton Hike is a sturdy, entry-level snowshoe that is at its best on groomed or well-tracked trails. However, it does not perform as well when you travel off the beaten path into the backcountry. Easton is taking us from the baseball field into the backcountry! The Hike snowshoe is advertised as providing  “…the perfect balance of traction, flotation, and comfort to accommodate longer and steeper excursions.” Those who spend their snowshoeing days on groomed trails are likely to agree.

Tubbs Men's Wilderness Series

rated 4 of 5 stars Impressive hiking/backcountry snowshoe from long-time maker of snowshoes, Tubbs. Great weight-to-size/flotation with easy on and off buckling mechanism. Heel lift for extended climbing and fairly aggressive traction make for an enjoyable day hiking the snow covered trails here in Colorado. I purchased these snowshoes in mid-January after it had been snowing quite a bit during December. But then it turned warm, unseasonably warm here in the Denver area with 50s-70s for the rest of January and early… Full review

Atlas Elektra 11 Series

rated 3 of 5 stars Bought these a few years ago now, have used them almost weekly and for the most part happily during snow season ever since. I actually came on Trailspace to look at a stiffer composite upgrade. The Elektras are lightweight and great for relatively flat terrain or for climbing straight up and down hills... not so great for traversing a slope, which stresses out my ankles when wearing these. They also do kick up a lot of snow...waterproof pants are a must with these. Full review

Tubbs Men's Wilderness Series

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent snowshoes for use on all but the steepest terrain. Lightweight, with comfortable bindings that are easy to enter and exit even with gloves on, they have plenty of flotation to take you just about anywhere. About 3 years ago I bought myself a pair of Tubbs Wilderness 36 snowshoes to replace my old Yubashoes Borderlines that I'd given to a friend's son so the 3 of us could hit the trails together. The Wilderness is a great snowshoe! You can get them on or off in seconds, the bindings are… Full review

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

L.L.Bean Women's Pathfinder Snowshoe

rated 1 of 5 stars I hiked for 6 hours in Pathfinder snowshoes today and I can tell you it was no fun. My friend snowshoed with her husband's Atlas and had a better hike then I had. The Pathfinders caught on the front strap holder and spit snow at me all day, making it hard to take a correct step forward. I also was going through on every other step up to my knee whereas my friend with her husband's Atlas was not. I would not recommend this snowshoe to anyone who likes mountain hikes. Terrible. 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
