I am so happy I bought these snow shoes, and got them at an excellent price on Amazon as well! I always do a lot of comparison shopping online, in the stores, and on the trail when possible. I love that the teeth are a part of the frame itself, not going to be any problem with them, ever. the deck material is lightweight but strong. The buckling system is by far the easiest to do with gloves on compared to other styles. Easy to get on and off and they stay put well. The tiny extra amount of weight compared to plastic shoes or those with tubular frames is well worth it for me as I feel these will definitely hold up to whatever I put them through on the trail. I would suggest this product to anyone who is looking to buy snow shoes that they plan on having around for a long time.

MSR Ascents are the best snowshoes I've ever user. Period. Hands down! You cannot beat the traction uphill and downhill. They are light and the binding will fit bulky winter boots easily. The bindings are simple to adjust. These MSRs are on top of the snowshoe heap.

Husband and I exchanged snowshoes this past Christmas and we both got the Lightening Ascent model. We'd only snowshoed once before and we had trouble with the bindings staying on. I also kept tripping over my feet. Our first two trips with our new shoes have been great--very comfortable and easy to get the snowshoes on and start exploring away. These really aren't in the price range for a novice snowshoer, but I'm glad we spent the extra money on these. Especially if we're in for another snow MN winter.

After completing an extension research and demo different brands, I went with these for the following reasons: shorter and narrower specific to women's petite size, versatile for different conditions, light and ease of use.

The shoes are very lightweight with good traction and the heelavators work well going up steep hills. I would highly recommend them.

First, yes I am a guy rating a women's snowshoe. Bought these for myself as they provide a narrower gate (meaning legs are closer together when walking). Purchased size 25 as I am 180 lbs (200 with backpack) and 6 ft tall. Used these on two weekend hikes climbing 4 of the NH 4000 footers, two each weekend with an average of 10 miles each hike, and we were in them the entire hike. The vertical climbs were between 45 degrees and straight up some chimneys. These shoes were wonderful and the televators were awesome (first pair for me with them) on the steep climbs. People recommended that I should get the repair kit for these so I thought I would share that for when you order yours

My wife loves them. They grip really well on the compacted snow. Up hill was a breeze and so was down hill. Didn't slip once. They are light weight and very durable.

I got these for my wife. We have gone snowshoeing three times, hiking on trails with some climbing. She loves them. MSR is the best!
