User Review: MSR Denali
Price Paid: $140
I just started snowshoeing and bought these from REI to try out. I don't have a reference of comparison, but these Denalis were great. The trip leader had been snowshoeing for 30 years and took us up fairly steep hills in the backcountry of Colorado. I no problem trekking up hill or "skiing" down hill through the powder. I bought the additional tails and they worked great in powder. The only thing I noticed was that when going across the side of a slope they felt a tiny bit unstable. Otherwise, they were light, effective in deep powder and easy to adjust.
