Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and comfortable I've used these in all types of terrain around Taos and the ski valley since December 2014. They offer great traction and they are so lightweight, you'll have to look down to see if they're actually on your feet. The bindings make these very simple to put on and remove. Adjust the heel straps first to position your feet in just the right spot and leave them at that adjustment for future use. The single front strap has a ratchet adjustment to snug up the boot to the snowshoe and is easily loosened incrementally with the red release buttons to fine tune a comfortable fit. Release the front straps for a quick exit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Uncomfortable Strap My only complaint is a big one. They hurt to wear. The ratcheting single strap on the front pulls across my pinky toe every time I walk down hill or cinch the strap tight. I can loosen it significantly and it's not bad, but still hurts when walking downhill. If you have hard sided boots, then these might work for you. The strap release can freeze shut too. Otherwise, the snowshoe works fine. The straps are very quick to enter and release. The televators are amazing. If you're ever climbing steep hills, you'll really want this feature. I returned these for some Lightening Ascents for the much more comfortable triple front (non-ratcheting) strap system.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from MSR revo explore The straps are the best I've seen, easy to use and stay in place really well. The style and build is nice, gives extra grip on ice and difficult climbs or side of hills. They are really loud, it's hard to have a quiet hike through the woods when your snowshoes are constantly clanking due to the plastic build. The televator level came off a couple of times during a switch from up to down, ultimately nothing happened beside peeling paint, but I am concerned about the longevity of the metal bar due to continue disfunction. They are nice, but expensive and for the money I thought I was purchasing the best, I'm a little concerned about my current purchasing choice. Every trail connects, so opt outside. Go farther

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASIEST Straps Around My husband and I bought these snowshoes, and it is one of the best decisions we have made! We have been snowshoeing for many years, and it was always a pain to put on and take off our old snowshoes. These straps are amazing. Just watch the video on the REI site to see how simple they are. The paint does chip a bit even after the first use, but that is such a minor problem. Another reviewer mentioned the front strap pinching their toes. I had the same issue, but I simply repositioned my foot and the problem went away immediately. We LOVE these and couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, get the job done exceptionally well I bought the MSR Revo Explore 25 inch snowshoes as my 1st pair of snowshoes for technical and trail winter hiking/mountaineering in the White Mountains. I'm 5'9" 175 lbs and balloon up to ~210 lbs with my gear and clothing while on the trail. I preferred these over the 3-strapped MSR Revo Ascent series because of the ease of getting into and out of the binding (it's cold in the White's and I don't like stopping for long). I get into and out of my snowshoes much faster than other's in my party with the Ascent's. That said, I do have concerns of the Revo Explore's single strap breaking on trail. Carrying a replacement strap should solve that issue. The binding ratchets, even when clogged up with snow and a little ice have not so far been problematic (ie they work as they should under challenging conditions). The Explore's front crampon "teeth" are less aggressive than those found on the Ascent series, but I've detected no difference in my ability to gain traction on tough terrain compared to my fellow hikers using MSR Ascent series snowshoes. The Revo Explore's provided excellent traction on icy, steep terrain, and rocky terrain. The 25's provide great flotation in deep and powdery snow. As my first pair, I've beaten them up pretty well and the orange paint and plastic deck already have signs of wear and tear. However, these are cosmetic and the plastic deck and the frame and traction crampons seam to be tough as nails and in good shape. Some reviews have discussed the binding-to-snowshoe pivot as squeaky... I have not experienced that. One sour note that other reviewers have touched on... the binding straps are too short for large boots and/or large feet. The straps BARELY fit my size 10 Koflach double plastics. However, I made a 30 second phone call to MSR and with zero questions asked, they agreed to ship out, free of charge, a longer set of binding straps that they assured me would fit my bulky double plastics. Problem solved. That's customer service! I see this as a serious issue in the design, but it's an issue that can be avoided by contacting MSR. It would not prevent me from purchasing an otherwise excellent technical snowshoe. Lastly, these, like most snowshoes, are easy to strap to my winter alpine/backpacking pack using the side compression straps on the pack. I recommend the MSR Revo Explore snowshoes. This series is relatively new to MSR, so I can't provide information on the long term durability of the MSR Revo Explore, but I have no basis for concern based on my experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these bindings! I've got a full season in with these. We live at 9000', so they DO get an occasional workout. I've been really happy with these. First, I like the grip of the rails compared to tubes. When you come across an icy patch it's just not a concern. I But if I had to choose a favorite desire it would be the bindings. They are just super easy to get in and out of, adjust very precisely and easily, and once you're in everything strays put. I did a few miles in knee deep fresh snow this morning and I never had to readjust once. My g/f has the typical nylon strap setup. They are harder to get into, and I always have to help her tighten up at least once during a hike. My only gripe with the Revo's is that they are a bit loud when you're on crunchy or icy snow because of the plastic tail as it drags. But as far as function and appearance I'm a believer! Once you use these bindings it'll hard to give them up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with these. Bought a new pair of these yesterday after losing my old Evos. I was a little concerned over the binding system with one strap to hold your forefoot. I was worried it would cut off the circulation to my toes. This was not a problem they worked fine. O like the ease of the binding system. Good traction as always with MSR shoes. Still pretty noisy on the snow with the hard plastic but the trade off for functionality is worth is. Most money I have ever spent on snowshoe but I think it was money well spent. Now to see how the hold up over time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great quality but painful bindings I bought this particular model of MSR's on account of reviews and guidance from the REI staff, based on the mixture of terrain that I am snowshoeing. The quality, appearance, and overall function are great, however, the binding type made for some really bad pressure points on the outside edge of my foot and small toe area. I made numerous adjustments along the course of a 7-mile trip, but the pain just got worse. I wear a light weight mildly insulated hunting/hiking boot. I would only recommend this binding with the use of larger more rigid boots. I replaced these with the Revo Accent model.

Do you need special shoes to use these?

Asked by: half-pint
Specific footwear is not needed to use the Revo Explore Snowshoes, though they would be best used with a winter hiking boot.

Does this product fit snowboard shoes? I'm considering using these for BC access to "easy" BC lines.

Asked by: JGoin
These snowshoes should fit most snowboard boots. Larger sizes could be too big for the binding straps. The MSR Revo Ascent Snowshoes could be a better choice as they have more universal and adjustable binding system. https://www.rei.com/product/875165/msr-revo-ascent-snowshoes
