MSR Denali

rated 5 of 5 stars While no longer being sold, these are great snowshoes that can be used in just about any snow conditions and have great traction features for climbing steeper slopes and crossing side slopes. I have owned a pair of the MSR Denali snowshoes since the mid 1990's and have been regularly been using them each winter since that time. I have always liked the design of these snowshoes and they have worked well in the heavy wet/icy/crusty snow we get up here in Washington State. I am about 190 lbs and even… Full review

MSR Men's Lightning Trail

rated 5 of 5 stars Rugged snowshoes that you'll forget you're even wearing due to their light weight. Three-strap bindings keep them securely on your feet, and the 360 Degree Traction frame and toothed crossbars keep you securely on the ground. Even the most hardcore people—which I certainly am not!—take it easier sometimes, and that's what MSR Lightning Trail snowshoes are for. When you're not doing prolonged ascents in the mountains the extra weight of heel lifters and a more beefy frame is just that—extra… Full review

MSR Denali

rated 4 of 5 stars These are indestructible snowshoes. I have had these snowshoes for about 10 years now. They are very indestructible, which is a good thing when hiking over rocks and branches. I have not used them in deep powder. In the Northeast where I am the snow is usually somewhat wet and these work fine. I am 220 pounds so I have the longer tails attached. I have not used them while carrying a heavy pack. I think if I did I would need bigger snowshoes to increase the float. Overall I like these but the rubber… Full review

MSR Evo Ascent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Indestructible white plastic snowshoes that have good gripping and are easy to put on with mittens and are great for off-trail use. Easy to put on and take off without taking off your mittens. These are the best snowshoes for off trail use — map and compass stuff — work well in the forest. These MSR EVO ASCENT snowshoes have three binding straps and televators. The trail EVO models have two binding straps and no televators. Great for beginning but not good for large steep hills and mountains. Full review

Atlas 12 Series

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bindings fell apart after 7 or 8 uses. Atlas claims a lifetime warranty but no repair offered for my claim. Will find another brand next time. Bindings fell apart after 7 or 8 uses. Contacted Atlas and they said no parts available. They didn't respond to warranty inquiries at all. Full review

MSR Men's Revo Explore

rated 4 of 5 stars Great snowshoe with unique binding system for easy in/out use. Metal frame provides great traction. The Revo Explore snowshoe offers a unique binding system for an easy way to put your snowshoes on and off.  The frame of the snowshoe offers great traction when hiking in icy or packed snow terrain and along traverses.  Revo Explore snowshoes are designed to provide all day comfort when tackling rolling and backcountry terrain. This is my first pair of snowshoes, and I received them as a birthday… Full review

MSR Women's Revo Ascent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars MSR has created a good all-around 'shoe which uses spans from a beginner to a serious snowshoer. Its flex, fit, grip, and heel lift bar create a solid product for those who want a tough, wide ranged product. This 'shoe works really well in a casual capacity, but is easily capable of handling hilly terrain or a serious excursion of a more dynamic trip. These shoes are an excellent choice for the novitiate who wants to grow to for the more experienced outdoor adventurer who needs a reliable, sturdy,… Full review

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.
