mnmwrote a review of MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoe - Women's on December 30, 2009
Bought these a couple of years ago for backcountry and regular paved trail snowshoeing. They offer great traction and really help to dig in in icy conditions. My only complaint is that the deck membrane has started to wear out just after the first few wears. It hasn't affected the performance of the snowshoes yet but I do worry as to how they will hold up in the long-term.
