Looking for the right snowshoes can be a daunting task. However, I really like these snowshoes that MSR has put out.

Along with MSR’s quickly-becoming-legendary 360-degree traction system and easy-peasy SpeedLock Comfort bindings, the MSR Men’s Lightning Axis Snowshoe features the Axis Gait Efficiency System. This system adjusts to your extra-wonky walk to make snowshoeing as natural as strolling down the beach.

  • Bilateral binding adjustment neutralizes variances in foot positions to give you the most natural-feeling stride possible
  • 360-degree traction frames for added support and stability in varied terrain
  • Modular flotation tails (sold separately) allow you to use the shorter snowshoe alone for maneuverability or attach the tails when added flotation is necessary
  • Climbing wires come standard and can be activated with a flick of your pole
