MSR Gear Guide

MSR Brand Overview

MSR makes a wide range of products including snowshoes. This guide will focus on MSR’s top notch snowshoeing products. For other MSR products, see products at the end of the article.

MSR Snowshoes

MSR snowshoes, in my humble opinion, are excellent all-around snowshoes. For powder, end-of-season ice, off-trail, backcountry, first-timers, or hill-climbing, MSR snowshoes will get the job done. In many cases, better than any other snowshoe. Below is the list of all MSR snowshoes currently available for sale.

Lightning Ascent Snowshoes

Updated for 2017: The pinnacle of ultralight and aggressive all-terrain performance.

Ultralight snowshoes are built on a solid foundation of our advanced 360° Traction frames and deliver a level of security that tubular frames simply can’t—especially on traverses. Dual-component PosiLock AT bindings offer our most secure attachment, while rugged decking ensures long-lasting durability. In technical terrain, the snowshoes’ steel cross members and easily engaged Ergo™ Televators back you up with every step. And like all of our snowshoes, Lightning Ascents offer the all-condition adaptability of our Modular Flotation tails.
