Rated 5 out of 5 by from everything I could Ask for. Everything I ever saw wrong in snow shoes, They fixed it with these. Bindings supper simple. Solid fit to anything from my pack boots to hiking shoes. Don't throw snow down the back of your neck. Great at grabbing the ground. (do have to plant foot well down hill ) Gives you good stable platform to work and play from. Heal elevators are the greatest thing sense buttons on shirt pockets. My girl friend and I aren't the type for groomed trails. Was her first time on snowshoes. We crossed creeks, downed trees, ice. long up hill climbs .Put them threw a real test collecting sap bucket this week for maple syrup. Side hill uneven loads. scored a A plus. They are noisy. only bad word I have for them

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought a new pair of MSR-Revo Acent last winter to I bought a new pair of MSR-Revo Acent last winter to snowshoe around the Swiss Alps and I must say these are not your grandpa's snowshoes. I truly enjoy the new aggressive design, they bit in and hold on very well on a grade. They are comfortable for hours of shoeing. If you want so good snowshoes that will take you anywhere, I would recommend the MSR-Revo Ascent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used and abused my pair of Denali Ascents for 10+ years I used and abused my pair of Denali Ascents for 10+ years for everything from strolling through the woods to winter mountaineering, so I was a little heartbroken when the crampon finally cracked from fatigue this winter. I decided to take a chance on MSR's latest design and ordered the Revo Ascents. Being a die-hard fan of the Denali Ascents it may take me a while to come around fully, but here are my initial impressions: Bindings: The primary reason I ordered the Ascent model was for this style binding, since I loved it so much on my old pair. The old bindings were simple, unbreakable, and never iced up. The only downside to the old bindings was that at cold temperatures, the straps tended to become difficult to stretch and thus difficult to put on tightly, especially with mittens... MSR has appeared to address this with a softer formulation. The bindings lay almost perfectly flat, making these snowshoes very packable. While it doesn't negatively affect the performance of the snowshoes, the strap retainer clips don't work, so they just seem like a sloppy/silly addition. I've played around with the foot positioning a bit; using the ball of foot indicator on the base of the binding puts my foot to far forward (to my taste), such that the front crampons seem less effective for climbing. If I move my foot too far back in the binding, my heel will occasionally catch on the Televator bar, not a serious problem - but annoying. Consequently, I've had to dial in an ideal positioning for my boots. Traction: The snowshoes are not wanting for more traction. They seem to be more stable in slope-traversing situations than the Denali Ascents, perhaps because there is some flexibility in the crampon of this model. The traction around the edges of the snowshoes is a little more difficult to keep track of than more tightly space traction on other models. Consequently, I was more frequently catching the the snowshoes on ice and obstacles while traveling on tight trails. Overall: The construction appears to be of the quality I expect from MSR. Hopefully I will manage to get as much use out of them as my old snowshoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best snowshoe at this price I got a recommendation for these snowshoes on a mountaineering forum and agree that they were the best option for my price range. They are very grippy; I didn't slide on a frozen lake in 30+ mph winds nor on short unpacked hills in Rocky Mountain National Park. The edges are like knives which is great for crossing a slope. There isn't a heel crampon but there are 3 ridges on the underside of the plastic deck, so between those and the edges a heel crampon is unnecessary. The heel lift made going up steep slopes easy. I was zipping up slopes while my dad and brother were struggling a bit. The heel lift could be wider at the cost of structural integrity of the heel lift. If your foot isn't positioned perfectly straight in the snowshoe, it feels like your heel is being dragged sideways slightly. The binding is good. The only way your foot could come out is if you didn't properly tighten the straps. They weren't easy to put on in thick gloves, but if I used mittens with an under layer of thin gloves I would have had no problems. Overall, the snowshoes are a bit heavy, but the only way to go lighter while maintaining the other features would be to increase the price so I didn't factor it into my score.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomber Snowshoe You honestly feel unstoppable with these strapped to the bottom of your feet. I've worn them on powder, crusted snow, packed snow, and somewhat icy slopes. The tails help when I have a heavy pack on. The crampon edges kept me from sliding while descending, while those with tubular frames were struggling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Issue R/L Style Binding I have used MSRs Evo Ascent for 10 years, they were bullet proof. After 10 years of regular pounding use one of the binding plates broke. I replaced both bindings with the new style R/L bindings, they were great, and a definite improvement in controlling the shoes. Two years later the rivets that hold the plastic upper to the metal plate of the right shoe snapped off rendering the shoe unusable. Conditions were typical and not rigorous. I was surprised this happened given my confidence in MSRs. The left shoe is still perfect. It seems to be an issue that MSR can easily correct by using a stronger rivet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these snowshoes! I've used these snowshoes for half a season now and am very happy with them. I was looking to upgrade from some old atlas trail snowshoes, and settled on MSR mainly for their great reputation and durable plastic decking. I snowshoe off-trail in the backcountry, miles from anything anything groomed, so I wanted a snowshoe that was flexible enough to handle everything from 2' deep powder to slick icy slopes over the course of one day of exploring. I also bought the plastic tails and have used them a few times so far. The tails are easy to stash in a backpack and attach while you're out there. So far the toughest test I've put them to was a 6 mile route that gained about 1500' in elevation, and I felt secure the whole time. I specifically chose the revo ascents over other models offered by MSR for the heel lift (it really helps on those steep slopes!) and the older style bindings. The main problem I had with my old Atlas pair was losing a shoe in deep powder. While it's true that the 4 separate straps are kind of a pain to attach, I have put them through the same torture I put the old pair through and haven't lost one yet! I love how secure the bindings are and they're totally worth the initial effort if you are breaking trail all day and encountering a lot of deadfall. The clips that hold the extra length of strap in place, however, have been pretty useless. The only issue I've had has been overlapping my steps and scratching them up quite a lot. So far it hasn't affected the performance, just looks, but I'm hoping they'll last a good decade and I hope that doesn't wear them down too much. Maybe I should have gotten the women's pair to help reduce that, but my size wasn't available when these were on sale and I just had to have them before winter began!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Snowshoe - for the most part... I logged 25 miles, both on trail and off, the first three days that I used them. As a snow shoe on trails, steep traverses and off trail on firmer snow they excel. The footing was very secure and without question. The bindings are excellent and worked well with the Salomon 4D GTX boots that I was wearing. The function of the snowshoe I'll give 5 stars. I have used MSR products for years and have appreciated their engineering and design. That being said, I feel these shoes lack in what I will call "aesthetics". First, don't expect to see any wild life with these shoes as they are incredibly noisy on packed trails. Also, the bindings make a very annoying click-clack with each step and when the steel perimeter hits a hidden rock it is announced loudly. My other "aesthetic" comment is that I wish that MSR would have designed the the plastic decking to "wrap over" and cover the steel perimeter on the inside of the toe area. If one is in a very narrow technical area or the shoe deflects off of a hidden rock impacting the other shoe is unavoidable resulting in severely scratched paint. In all they are a great shoe, I just wish that MSR would have done a little extra engineering to resolve the annoyances - something that I would have expected at this price.

The video says they're rated to 180lbs.  With a pack I'm pushing 200; should I find a bigger snowshoe?

Asked by: EPW1969
Without tails, the 22 inch snowshoe is rated to up to 180 lbs. The 25 inch is rated 120-220 lbs and will provide enough flotation for your weight.
