    Tackle tough terrain.

    Need to get to your hilltop cabin, but the snow's miraculously deep and icy at the same time? Step into the MSR Revo Ascent Men's Snowshoe and crush the tough hills with a combination of external steel teeth and Torsion2 steel crampons, a rugged ExoTract injection-molded plastic deck, and reinforced nose that'll let you step, stomp, and kick your way up the nastiest, slickest terrain around. The Revo's PosiLock bindings lock down any type of footwear and give you plenty of support, even on sidehills, and the Ergo Televator heel lift pops up with the flick of a pole to help you make short work of steep climbs. MSR even offers attachable Modular Flotation tails, which give you added float in soft snow and boosts the weight capacity of the Ascent by 60 pounds.

    Cheap split board solution

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

    I have not had much experience with these bad boys, but so far so good. My fiance and I took these for a short day hike at Mt Rainier to do a little spring skiing. The shoes did awesome with both the hard pack in the shade and the mashed potatoes in the sunshine. There was a little slipping on the steep sections, but the extra toe crampons really helped hold footing/arrest a small slide. They were also low-profile enough to be barely noticeable strapped to my back for the decent. I'm excited to test them out on some bigger routes!

    As for fit, I was between the men's and women's Ascent, mainly for the width. I ended up getting the men's, and they work fine. There's some scuff marks on the inside edges where I occasionally clip one shoe with another, but I kind of like it - gives them some character. I also tested them with both my hiking boots and snowboard boots. Both fit just fine.

    Very good snowshoe.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Purchased men's 22" MSR Revo Ascent in Jan 2016. I am 5'6" tall and weigh 150 lbs without backpack. I have used them on 8 to 15 mile treks in Connecticut and in Maine. They performed excellent. Bindings held tight and the Ascents gripped good on varied terrain. Only issue is the steel crampons bent on one of the snowshoes. MSR could make the crampons sturdier since the Revo Ascent is marketed as a go anywhere snowshoe. I would recommend this product since it's overall performance met my expectations.

    I bought the revo ascent 25's and although I am very satisfied with the performance of the shoe. I have noticed on the underside there seems to be some variation to the color of plastic due to stress points. Is this normal??

    Life-savers

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

    I'm a 150lb 5'2 female and went with the 22in male Revo Ascent's because they were on sale. I believe they're slightly heavier than the female version, but the sale price was worth it.



    I've only worn them once, but so far so good. They took me a while to put on, and the straps were a little long, so they ended up flopping a little in the snow. Nothing that bothered me too much, though. I suggest securing the heel strap first and then moving forward from there to end at the toe strap. They're pretty easy to get out of - you don't even need to undo the heel strap.



    I noticed that they already got scuffed up after one use, just from my feet overlapping since the trail I was using was pretty narrow.



    The 2 best things about these snowshoes: the grip and the heel elevator.

    I ascended Mount Lafayette via the Greenleaf Hut trail in a snow storm after there was already over 2 feet of snow on the ground. When I took my snowshoes off, I was hip deep in snow. Once I got near the top of the ridge (close to Greenleaf Hut), there was a pretty much vertical wall of snow to get over. The claw in the front (and traction throughout the shoe) and the heel elevator were life-savers.



    I definitely recommend these snowshoes.

    Good so far!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just bought these, and so far so good!



    I'm 190lb plus gear, so I bought the 25in model.



    I have experience with the old MSR Denali Evo (like the old plastic body ones), but MSR doesn't make these anymore in the ascent model! So I was a bit torn - these are less expensive than the Lightning, but new to the market. I know I want to do more technical ascents with these, so I wasn't looking at trail models.



    So far, so good! The binding system offered on the trails seems quicker, but once adjusted, you can get in and out of these quick with just the heel strap.



    I like that the decks are hard plastic, and the rails are steel. Seems like the most durable combo for intermittent rocks.



    I did scuff them up on the first use, just where the inside of my feet overlapped from not stepping wide enough. No big deal, but they already seem well used as a result.



    At the front, the carry handle seems really nice as well.



    As far as flotation, no comment - will update. We were either in super deep powder or packed trails, so I didn't have an opportunity to experiment with float and tails.

    I am 5'11'' 195lbs and live in the PNW. My question is on sizing: Would these 22.5 inch MSR's allow for good flotation at my size?

    I'm a 5'1" 130lb male, and I intend to use these for both mild touring in the backcountry for single day travel with my more casual outdoor friends and for mountaineering in other instances. Due to small sized feet I wear size 39 1/2 boots, La Sportiva Nepal Evo GTX. Would the 22 in plus tails (for 50lbs add'l pack weight when needed) be sufficient for me, and would I be fine using these or better off with the same in the women's model? I am planning on using these in the Cascades and the Tahoe areas. I've done well hiking in the 22" older Denali Classic model, but have found manueverability with the 25" mens' Lightning Ascents to be difficult. What would probably work best for me?
