Overall Rating:5 out of 5 stars.
"These snowshoes are amazing. I originally wanted the MSR Lightening Flash, but decided to treat myself to the Accent - and I have no regrets. I am able to hike comfortably without feeling weighed"... (read full reviews)
Overall Rating:4.8 out of 5 stars.
"I bought these snowshoes because they are small and very light. I use them primarily for walking, and find that they have a very natural walking feel. I'm not much of a runner (even without snow) so I"... (read full reviews)

"A high quality bag. It fits my Lightning Axis 25" men's snowshoes perfectly, plus there is a pouch for the tails. While the tail pouch is good, it would be better if MSR could redesign it with a"... (read full reviews)

"These snowshoes perform very well, are very light and agile. But if you have big feet- I take womens 10.5- the bindings are just barely big enough to fit regular hiking boots. A sorel type boot would"... (read full reviews)

"I have done a lot of snowshoeing with these, 3-4 times a week for the past 2 winters. Mostly trails and some bush whacking with varied terrain and snow conditions. I wear an insulated hiking boot and"... (read full reviews)

"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)

"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)

"These are great quality, however the only bummer is that the straps are fabric instead of the click style , I would suggest finding a pair with click style closures as the straps can be a pain to do"... (read full reviews)

"Tried out my new snowshoes on Jumpingboundridge this Sunday - they where nice and lightweigt and felt good and secure even on the way down - hope to track many miles of fresh snow this winter! It may"... (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)

"Purchased for msr lightning ascent 30's. Msr bags will not fit these snowshoes. Bag would benefit with a small mesh area in the bottom to let out moisture. Also a compartment inside for extras or"... (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)
Overall Rating:2 out of 5 stars.
"The weight rating seems to way off for soft snow(should be lower) as well as the heel lift built into the binding is to stiff and provides a fresh shot of snow to the back of the legs all the way to"... (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)
