The MSR Women's Lightning Trail Snowshoes are ultralight snowshoes built for those with a narrow gait. The Lightning Trail creates an easier stride for the ladies, with an aggressive 360° Traction frame for superior grip along any type of terrain. Built for speed so you won't be weighed down, the ballistic fabric decking is also durable for season after season of use. The DuoFit bindings strap in a wide range of footwear and are even usable while wearing gloves. The urethane straps are freeze-proof so you don't have to struggle to get them off when arriving back to your cabin or car after a beautiful day hike. Completing the snowshoe is the Pivot crampon, with a dual pointed steel claw that grips all types of snow or ice. Crunch across rolling hills and packed trails for a day in the winter wonderland of nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch performance! I bought these snowshoes as a Christmas present to myself 3 years ago and use any possible excuse to go frolic in the snow with them. When all my winter-loving friends are slipping and sliding on the terrain, here I am galloping up and down mountains in anything from thick ice (thanks to a solid metal frame with teeth going around the entire thing), the feel of the "teeth" digging straight into the surface making me giggle with pleasure, to fluffy powder up to my waist. I feel like I will be keeping these babies for years to come, and, based on past happy reviewers, won't be surprised if I'm still strapping them on (it takes seconds for that too!) in 20 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Out There MSR sets the standard in snowshoes. I stepped up to the Lightning when I wanted something a little bigger and I couldn't be happier with them. We live in the mountains and snowshoes are an integral part of our kit (they don't leave my car all winter). My favourite thing about these snowshoes is the bindings. The pin system with the integrated crampon means they don't flop around. You can fasten the straps quickly, even while wearing gloves. With the quality, robust design, and price, I can't see choosing a brand other than MSR for snowshoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great on all terrain I bought these about 1 year ago. They are great on all terrains - deep snow, climbing trails and ice. Easy on and easy off. Unfortunately I broke the binding after the first season, but they were covered under the warranty and repaired for the cost of shipping only.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good for specific conditions This is my second pair of MSR showshoes and while I find them excellent in deep snow and open terrain, for most other conditions I would recommend MSR's Evo snowshoe. I have the older versions with the 30 cm versions which I prefer to using tails.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, Simple, Snowshoes I used these snowshoes twice. Once in Yosemite and more recently, in Mammoth where there was some deep, fresh powder. The shoes did awesome in the deep powder. In the really deep stuff, I sank a few inches, but my feet were easy to pull out. They provided awesome traction in the ice. Like other reviewers have commented on, the strap excess strap material slip out of the retention devices, but was not a huge issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome on side hilling! I used to detest snowshoeing on old Tubbs snowshoes. I seemed to slide backwards often and especially slip on side hilling. With my women's Lightening Trail snowshoes, snowshoeing became a pleasure. The side teeth allow for much better traction and no slipping and made it so much more fun!
