Recent Snowshoe Reviews

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 Men's Lightning Ascent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Solid, adaptable, compact, and good traction. I used a pair of 30" Sherpa tubular frame/neoprene base/lacing shoes for many years. Sherpa had an excellent warranty for lacing replacements, and even gave me a discount on a new pair when my original ones finally gave out. When the lacing/base on those gave in, it was time to try something new. Got the 25" MSR Ascents a couple of years ago on sale. Vertically oriented metal framing to which a nice neoprene base is attached/riveted. No lacing. Aggressive… Full review

MSR Evo

rated 5 of 5 stars Love, love, love MSR snowshoes. After a trail day event to try a few brands of snow shoes and hearing what fellow hikers had to say about their snowshoe experience, I purchased MSR. Once you figure out which shoe to put on which foot, you are good to go for a day out in the snow. Easy to get  on and off. Made well and does not kick up snow onto your back that some other brands can do. They did not feel like I had anything on my feet. Just walk and go! Full review

Bigfoot Snowshoes ADV Adventure

rated 0.5 of 5 stars What a horrible experience. Purchased two pairs of these and they are terrible! Started falling apart the first time out. We didn't walk on anything but snow. These are the worst snowshoes I have ever used.  They have several flaws: The ratchet bindings loosen very quickly, so you have stop to tighten them every few minutes.  The poles close no matter how tight you set them. The baskets that attach to the bottom of the poles broke in the first outing.  The shoes themselves are poor quality. The… Full review

L.L.Bean Women's Pathfinder Snowshoes

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

L.L.Bean Men's Winter Walker

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is my first pair of snowshoes and I'll have to say I'm impressed with the quality and ease of adjustment these snowshoes have. I bought these snowshoes three years ago and have had a blast with them, both in the woods and open fields. So easy to just step in, tighten, and away I go. The built-in crampons mean ice (which I've used these on) is no problem whatsoever. I'd recommend these to anyone. There may be better out there, but for entry level and price these are tough to beat. Full review

Redfeather Men's Hike

rated 5 of 5 stars As a relative novice to snowshoeing, I found the Redfeather Hike to be easy to put on, natural to hike in, and comfortable. They outperformed the snowshoes I rented from REI. Once a year, I get to attend a conference in Boulder, CO. Each year, the conference organizer (Tom) invites attendees to arrive a day early for a bit of snowshoeing in the front range of the Rockie Mountains. My first year, I rented snowshoes from the local REI (I'm sorry to say, I can't remember the brand). They were "okay,"… Full review

Faber Bear Paw - Heavy Duty Lacing

rated 5 of 5 stars A wonderful snowshoe for powder and (especially) wet snow conditions. The Faber Bear Paws, Heavy Duty Lacing come in a 14x30 inch version and a 16x30 inch version. Mine are the 16" wide version. The first thing to know about traditional snowshoes is that they require maintenance. They should get at least one coat of spar varnish prior to their first use and between seasons. They should be brought in to dry between uses. Store them in an airy place out of direct sunlight and keep them off the floor… Full review

MSR Men's Lightning Ascent

rated 5 of 5 stars Great shoes! Got the 25's and they can handle all conditions. Agree with the below comments. One downside is that the 25's with the tail extensions may keel you forward a little bit in softer, deeper snow (15+ in.) because of the smaller toe. Opting for the 30's is better in this case because the front is proportionally larger. Crampon frame and heel lift = straight up ANY hill. Full review
