    MSR doesn't make any toys. Their stuff is all made for serious mountaineers.

    Another vote for MSR Evo Denali. They proved over and over again to be comfy and resistant. Just love them!

    My friend just bought a nice set up of snowshoes that you just 'step' into. She always had trouble with her bindings, so this is great for her. She hasn't tried them out yet, but I think they'll be great. You have something similar to micro spikes etc that you can wear, and if the going gets rough, you just step into the snowshoe. It's like a 2 for 1.

    MSR Denali Evo Ascents are by far the best snowshoes I have ever used/seen.

    Default Another Recommendation - Tubbs Mountaineers

    Erich,
    It seems that most hikers have the MSR's according the what we've read on the forums and in talking to fellow hikers. Check these out though; Tubbs Mountaineers. We have had them for several years and are very pleased with them. You can get them thru EMS and possibly get a nice discount this time of the year.
