Recent Snowshoe Reviews

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

Atlas Race

rated 2 of 5 stars Well I like the snowshoes, but as for others, the front crampon broke after maybe 10 times of usage. This is complete bull, considered you pay extra for Titanium material. Full review

GV Snowshoes Mountain Extreme

rated 4 of 5 stars The GV Mountain Extremes are lightweight backcountry snowshoes suitable for the steepest terrain. The traction frame design and traction crossbars help you stick on ascents, descents, and traverses. Ratchet bindings allow for quick and easy donning and doffing. GV Snowshoes is a Canadian manufacturer of traditional and modern snowshoes, established in 1959. Their snowshoes are made in Canada. The Mountain Extreme is a backcountry snowshoe, especially at home on steep terrain with crusty, hard packed… Full review

Atlas Women's 9 Series

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great quality basic snowshoe for non-mountaineering use. Comfortable stride and good grip, excellent bindings. After going through three other pairs of snowshoes that failed in the field (snapped frame, broken cleats, broken straps...) I finally ended up with these. They have stood the test of time over a few years on numerous trips, are the most comfortable ones I've had, have excellent and simple to use bindings, and look cool (to me).   The suspension system is really good and the toe lift is… Full review

Redfeather Guide Series

rated 3 of 5 stars The Redfeather Guide snowshoes are great for packing in huge loads in moderate terrain. They are good for pulling sleds long distances through powder. I use these snowshoes only rarely. 36 inch Redfeather guide snowshoe with NEOS and Merrell boots inside 30-inch 2013 modelGeneral Deep snow big load transport snowshoes, great for hauling big loads to base camp Description I think Redfeather is discontinuing these, at least as of October 2016. They are not listed on the company website. I found one… 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

MSR Women's Lightning Ascent

rated 5 of 5 stars I love these snowshoes! Lightweight with great traction! Will go through anything! These snowshoes were a great buy! Got them on Amazon before Christmas when there were awesome sales going on. Paid $199; I think they retail for $279? I'm very happy with them. Very durable with great fit and traction, will go through any winter terrain, and great for climbing in the snow. Full review

MSR Men's Revo Trail

rated 4.5 of 5 stars On hill these snowshoes are so practical. Never plenty of snow underneath, the grip is efficient enough. These snowshoes work efficiently. The only part I don't like are the too long attach straps, even in tightest point. I do some winter camping in the Arctic (Baffin Island) and I grow up by the Penny Ice Cap in the Auyuittuq National Park. These snowshoes were very helpful in the expedition. I appreciate them! They are light and solid. The snow never sticks on them! Full review

Faber North Cliff

rated 3 of 5 stars A good snowshoe aimed at the recreational market, but that is both reasonably priced and packed with features. It is also designed AND made in Canada. A very good option for someone wanting a trail snowshoe that can handle climbs, steep descents, and a bit of running in a variety of snow conditions, all in the same day. Ease of use: The bindings are easy enough to use and set (pull on the strap in front then in the back), but they are much more finicky than they would seem at first glance. The material… Full review
