The MSR Women's Lightning Explore Snowshoes are an aggressive, ultralight shoe with comfortable bindings to get you through long days during on- and off-trail adventures. The toothy 360° Traction frame is slimmed down to accommodate a narrow gait, so you can walk as normal and still get stellar traction through all conditions. The ballistic fabric decking is tough and durable while keeping weight at a minimum. Strap these puppies to your feet with the new HyperLink™ bindings, they cradle your foot like a Momma does her baby (soft and gentle, without any hot spots). The ratchet system cinches the heel and forefoot straps down and the red side buttons adjust and release as necessary. Set the heel strap only once, and you won't have to release it again, unless of course you change your footwear or let someone borrow your trusty snowshoes. One last thing before I sign off here, Ergo Televators! Flip this handy little bar up with a flick of your trekking pole grip and ease into an uphill climb.

AwesomeI received these as a gift. I had worn oversizes tubular snowshoes in the past. What a difference these shoes make. These shoes are right-sized for women -shorter and narrower - which allows for a more natural gait (I am 5'4" and 120 lbs). They provide plenty of float, and incredible grip. Much more grip than tubular shoes. The binding is also easy to use. Also, incredible price from Moosejaw. Perfect.
