Recent Snowshoe Reviews

MSR Lightning Tail

rated 5 of 5 stars An ingenious way to increase your snowshoes' carrying capacity or flotation. They're lightweight, easy to carry on or in your pack, and can be attached and removed quickly without removing your snowshoes. The MSR Lightning Tails are a great way to basically have two pairs of snowshoes. You can buy a smaller pair of snowshoes for better maneuverability and attach the tails when you need better flotation or are carrying a heavier load. They attach very securely and use your own weight to stay attached. Full review

MSR Men's Lightning Ascent

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The MSR Lightning Ascent has the best traction of any snowshoe I've used. The bindings are super secure, easy to use while wearing gloves or mittens, and won't absorb water and freeze. Their narrow width makes walking very easy, and the optional tail extensions increase flotation if you're carrying a heavier pack or are in softer snow. I bought my MSR Lightning Ascent 30s in early March of this year as a guarantee that I'd have a pair for a weekend of snowshoeing some friends and I had planned,… Full review

Tubbs Men's Mountaineer Series

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Tubbs Moutaineer 36s are lightweight snowshoes that have incredible traction on steep hills and packed snow, while also excelling in softer snow due to their surface area. The bindings are comfortable, secure, and offer quick entry and exit. Last winter when I broke my Tubbs Wilderness 36 snowshoes, I needed to get another pair within a week in order to be ready for a weekend of snowshoeing I'd planned with some friends. I decided on the Tubbs Mountaineer 36s because I wanted to get further… 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

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
