Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work Good The tails work good,but second time out lost one in deep powder.I think next time i will drill a couple of holes in the deck and tab and zip tie the tails to the deck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They fall off. This product didn't stay on so I sent them back. it also has the traction rail on the back, I love the traction rail( aggressive sides instead of tubes) on the snow shoes but on the back they act as a snow plow. It may not be much but you do notice it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mine Came Off Too - Bummer! They worked great the first time, but second time out in deeper snow one came off and and didn't notice until it was long gone, now I'm stuck with just one and have to shell out another $50 for just one. I think they tried to make them too easy to put on and remove rather than focusing on a secure attachment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Are you putting them on correctly? On REVO EXPLORERS - The instructions say the pins should be below the deck. Well, on mine the pins go into predrilled holes in the deck frame. With the pins in those holes I don't see how they could drop off. It took awhile to figure this out. The instructions are simply wrong. Even the video on Utube is wrong as least as far as the snowshoes I bought last winter. If you have a problem call MSR. They'll want to do the right thing...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Constantly Losing Tails I really liked the Revo Ascent Snowshoes themselves. Great traction and heel lift bar. Unfortunately, I was constantly turning around to make sure I didn't lose the tails! I gave these a real solid go, tried them on two different winter 14er ascents before finally giving up and returning the snowshoes and tails. I can't even count how many times I lost both tails. It was quite frustrating! I truly believe I was attaching them properly. It seems like this is a common problem that will hopefully be addressed in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lost one too! LIke the previous reviewer, I lost one tail about 100' into my first hike. Granted, it was in about 20" of powder and I did not notice it missing til a quarter mile in. I know that these are NOT the ideal shoes for powder. In fact I think that was the reason I didn't miss it. I retraced my tracks and found the tail and did note that one of the spring steel pin/clip rails was bent outward. I bent it inward a bit and checked the other tail. I have not lost it after trekking through deep powder again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointing I used this once in rough terrain, little did I realized, I had lost one of the tails in deep powder. Disappointing, given they were securely(or so it seemed) fitted.
