Not in my possession

Sorry, I cannot answer any questions because I gave them as a Christmas gift to my son—-- which was very well received. If he has any comments or problems, I’ll let you know if you send more surveys.

The best snowshoes

These are the best snowshoes. Slim so you don’t catch them on eachother. Super light weight. The cost is a Great price. Very durable. Easy to grab and get after it. I went for an all day trip in the mountains with there. One downside is the straps sometimes fall off but it’s a very minor issue

Caution Large or Wide Boot Sizes

These shoes do not work with men's boot sizes 14 and above - more so if you wear a wide size. The boot toe box is too wide to pass through the opening preventing the mechanics of the shoe to work properly.

Bryan

As someone who wears a size 15 winter boot this is the ONLY pair of snowshoes that I could find that fit. It just so happens that they work really well.

Good product

Bought these to replace a pair that broke. Would liked to have gotten replacement parts but MSR never returned inquires for spare parts via the website.

Great snowshoe! Durable and Versatile

These are great snowshoes. Very versatile and durable and can handle everything from casual hikes on flat terrain to relatively technical steep terrain (I'm located in the Rocky Mtns). I see some people have issues with the bindings, but I think they work great. They are easy to snug up and I've never had any comfort or retention issues. I carry an extra strap on me in the event one snaps. They also have the ability to be field repaired better than other snowshoes (the televator bail can be used in the event one of the binding pins breaks at the decking). I'm close to 200 lbs. and run them as-is with no tails and they still have decent flotation, even in the dry Colorado snowpack. I highly recommend them.

Terrible bindings

I have 2 long winters in Alaska on these, running a trapline, hunting, and for work. The grip and additional flotation tail are awesome, but the bindings make these extremely frustrating to use, especially below 0 degrees... The buckle is the main point of failure, as the nipple that goes in the strap is too short and not at the correct angle to stay in the hole. The only way I can help mitigate them coming loose is to pull them super tight, but then it smashes my feet and reduces blood flow and makes feet get colder much faster. A possible secondary fix would be to use cloth straps in order to minimize rigidity in the rubber straps at cold temps. I will have to rivet mine, for a specific boot. Almost threw them down the hill last weekend when they came off more times than I care to remember, while hunting.

Best Snowshoes, Hands Down!

I bought a pair of MSR Evo Ascent in 2008 and, apart from a strap replacement, they are still going strong - even with one of the tips chewed by a puppy along the way. I live against the side of a steep mountain in Western Montana, and can use these to handily climb the switchback and then put on tails to float across 4 and 5 feet of powder. I highly recommend the tails. I think I may treat myself (finally) to a new pair this year!
