Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for flat, rolling, or wooded terrain After using my MSR Lightning Ascent 30 snowshoes for 2 winters, I wanted something lighter and more maneuverable for daily use on forest trails and rolling terrain. I chose the Lightning Trail 25s and couldn't have been happier. Even in soft late-season snow they didn't sink unacceptably far (with day pack I'm about 60lb heavier than their rated capacity w/o tails), the exceptional rigidity of the frames means you don't have to worry about bending them when you find a stump or log that's now closer to the surface, and I don't think anything needs to be said about MSR traction or the security of the bindings. At 1lb 3oz less per pair than the Lightning Ascent 30s (per the MSR website) I can really feel the difference, especially when I switch from my Sorel Conquests to Asolo Fugitive GTX for even more weight savings. I can't think of a single thing I'd change about these snowshoes. They're great.
