Comments about MSR Lightning Snowshoe Flotation Tails - 5":
These are a great addition to whatever size MSR Lightning Ascent snowshoe you may own. They go on and off quickly after a little practice, and they stay on just as securely as the Lightning Ascent snowshoes themselves. They're also just as sturdy as the Lightning Ascent snowshoes, which is saying a lot.
If you're following a well packed trail these can stay in your pack, giving you a smaller snowshoe to maneuver and to pick up and put down as you walk. If the trail ends or the snow gets deep, these go on in a few minutes, giving an extra measure of flotation where it's needed, and they come back off just as quickly. If your pack is a little heavier than usual (or if you overdid the holiday dinners), these will give a little temporary added flotation when needed. The only drawback is that all the extra length is added at the back of the snowshoes, so they don't offer quite as much extra flotation as a snowshoe that's 5" longer to start with. They are, however, much cheaper and easier to carry around than a second pair of snowshoes.
