"I initially bought these with the expectation that they would be fine(ish) for flat(ish) trails and packed snow. Turns out my expectations were far too low. I absolutely love the freedom of movement"... (read full reviews)

"Purchased these in a older model (?2011) last year on the MEC clearance site, and have been quite pleased. They are light, very easy to put on even with gloves,and don't seem to kick up as much snow"... (read full reviews)

"I have the Elektra 9 series and it looks like the 10 hasn't changed much. It is a well built product that should last many seasons. I love the women-specific design and the harness is so easy to put"... (read full reviews)

"They're pretty much what came with my MSR Lightning Ascents. The originals are holding up well and I imagine these spares will as well. It's cheap insurance for some winter fun."... (read full reviews)

"I found these snowshoes to be nice snowshoes, with an aggressive crampon but they kick up way too much snow. By the end of a trip your snowpants would be completely soaked and you would be cold and"... (read full reviews)

"This is my second pair of Atlas snowshoes and I've put many kilometers of off-trail use on both. Like my old Atlas 8s they are generally well conceived constructed, but they have two design flaws that"... (read full reviews)

"We upgraded my 5 year olds snowshoes this year to the Atlas 17 from the MSR Denali Tyker - she's been snowshoeing since she was 2. The strap over the boot was awkward and cumbersome to adjust "in the"... (read full reviews)

"I bought a pair of MSR snowshoes (which no longer seem to be offered) in February that have straps like these. The best I can say is they are USELESS. The metal prongs are not high enought to actually"... (read full reviews)
