You don't want snowshoes designed for Everest-like icy steeps and elephant-like pack weight if your normal tour is a few hours on flat or rolling terrain with a small daypack. The MSR Women's Lightning Flash Snowshoe has a lightweight design and narrow, women-specific profile so you can move fast with maximum efficiency.

  • 360-degree traction frames for added support, stability, and grip in varied terrain
  • SpeedLock bindings are freeze-resistant and are easily adjusted, even with thick gloves on; optional instep strap (sold separately) offers extra security
  • Use the snowshoes alone for better maneuverability, and add the modular flotation tails (sold separately) when added flotation is necessary

Super product!

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

MSR Lightning Flash snowshoes were a fabulous

gift during this winter's hammering snow and storms

in Oregon. Though the fabled rains out here

dissolved most of our snow right after the gift arrived,

I could not wait to strap them on to test their features.

Right away, I give the product five stars for design & weight

(my first pair of snowshoes were the bear paw type

and nearly 'bear-weight'), same for ease of getting in and

out, even while wearing thick gloves. I tromped a patch of snow to test toe lift, stability, maneuverability and they outdid anything else I've tried. The 'ice white' color is wonderful, makes you feel one with the snow. I'd recommend anyone giving these a try.

Super product!

Be There in a Flash!

Don't waste your time on tube snow shoes, go straight for the Flash. These are easy to maneuver and easy to get up the hill on.

MSR Lightning Flash snowshoe for women, is there a tail that can be attached to this model?

Best Answer

The MSR Lightning Tail Snowshoe Flotation Tail is compatible with any set of snowshoes in the MSR Lightning series and adds an extra 5" to the end of your snowshoes. Good for increased float when carrying heavy loads or in deeper powder conditions.
