Nitro Anthem fits just fine

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I am yet to take it out into deeper stuff, but strapped in just fine with 2013 Nitro Anthem boots. It was my greatest concern when buying, whether my snowboard boots would fit. They do. I am going to take these out in the Mammoth backcountry / Sherwin range early January and will report back.

Great traction, poor bindings

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just tried these snowshoes out yesterday. I thought the traction of the shoe itself was great just as advertised. They were lightweight but I couldn't get the bindings to stay on my foot. I was snowshoeing with three very experienced snowshoeing friends and none of them could get them to work correctly.
The "optional" add-on strap should be part of the bindings so that they wouldn't fall off so easily. These would be great snowshoes with an improved binding system!

I've been out a few times in these so far this winter, and am pretty impressed. This is my first pair of snowshoes, so I don't have much to compare them to. They are pretty light, and seem sturdy. The bindings work great and are super easy to use. However, despite both the Backcountry.Com and the MSR website clearly stating that the optional add-on strap is included, apparently they aren't. Mine didn't come with any, and in communication with Backcountry they decided they are optional and you have to purchase seperately. Even though, as I'm typing this, I can see the listing that says it's included. Oh well, the bindings seem to hold fine without it!
