The MSR Women's Revo Explore Snowshoes are all about durability and exploring ungroomed trails while remaining comfortable throughout the whole adventure. The ExoTract deck combines burly injection-molded plastic with an aggressive side rail of metal teeth for plenty of grip. The combo comes in at 3 lbs, 11oz (add 2oz for 25 inch length), so it won't weigh you down and the tapered shape allows for those with a narrow gait to shimmy up the mountainside mountain-goat style. Or just walk across some snow normally. Comfy HyperLink bindings cradle your foot, reducing hotspots throughout the day. Just ratchet the two straps and adjust them with the red buttons as needed. Check out the sweet little video for instructions. Don't forget to pop the Ergo Televators when headed uphill to ease the strain upon your calves and increase traction.

Solid feel, quick bindingsI bought these before the start of winter 2014. The snow year was awful and I only used them 3 times. However, The few times I got out were bluebird powder days. The bindings took a few tires to really get my foot where it worked best for me, but since then its been a breeze. I am usually the first in and out of my snowshoes on trips. The bindings occasionally squeak at the pivot point but its usually only for a short bit. These have great traction for all terrain. In deep, fresh powder the tails would be very useful but that can be said of any shoe out there. Definitely a great made product.

Another Great Piece of EquipmentFantastic, very comfortable, light weight, the list goes on. These shoes are awesome. I am big guy and they have held up great so far. I wear a size 14 boot, they are fairly tall and pretty wide in the toe, hunting boots really. The toe straps are at the very edge so I ordered a replacement set of straps and am using the 8.5" ones for both the front and rear straps. That is my only complaint, not really too much of an issue as it can be easily resolved. The heel risers are a nice touch for climbing long hills. Another great product from MSR!

Good except for HyperLink bindingsI bought a pair of Revo Explores last fall and used them on five outings this winter before taking them back and exchanging them. The problem is the HyperLink bindings which, I understand, are new this year. The ratchet release is very convenient, but there is a design flaw in how the bindings conform to the foot. The rivet and ridged plastic that encases the front part of the boot kept digging in to my left foot going downhill. The result: blisters and blood and some pretty sore little toes on my left foot! I thought at first they just needed to be broken in. Then I thought, well, maybe it's my boot. I bought a new pair of winter boots a half-size larger. That helped but not much. So I think MSR needs to work on these bindings. I like the ratchet attachment. Very nice. But the rest of the binding toward the front has problems.

QualityI got the Revo explores for Christmas and have been very pleased. Before Christmas I spent a couple of week researching various brands and styles. MSR stuck out. The biggest reason I picked these over others is the unique side rail design and the bidding. The bidding is comfortable and easy to adjust with the micro adjustments. The side rail gives exceptional traction especially when walking across hills. The entire shoe torques slightly including the side rail causing the entire shoe to make contact with the hill side. Overall, very pleased and will most definitely buy for MSR in the future.

First pair of snowshoesGot these for Christmas 2015 and have put about 18 miles on them. Very comfortable snowshoes. Have had not one instance with them coming off my feet. Excellent traction.
Only complaint is that the front or toe hyperlink binding straps are too short for wearing with heavy insulated boots. Pac boots were out of the question and a pair of 800 gram Danner Pronghorns barely fit. Had to purchase the the replacement strap kit and swap out the 6.5" toe straps with the longer 8.5" heel straps. I wear size 12.5 regular boot. If you wear a boot any larger be prepared to do the mod that I did.

Fast, Light, and EasyWe have 10 pairs of these snowshoes. They are my favourite snowshoes we have ever owned. The are fast to put on, easy to instruct others on use, and fairly light for long days on the snowshoes. The only issue I have with them is that so far 4 release buckles on the new binding systems have snapped off in the -30 celcius temperatures we are having this year.

DecentMy only complaint would be the front strap, you are on a learning curve on tightening it so you don't put pressure on your toes.

Terrible design :(The bindings bruised the top of my feet, no control when going downhill and worst of all, snow accumulated on the insides of the bindings between the plastic rim and the boot. This is an Epic Fail...!
