MSR Evo Snowshoe Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

Less than 72 hours after these arrived we were slammed with 3 feet of the heaviest, wettest snow I have ever seen. We lost power with only 6 inches of this stuff on the ground.. trees coming down everywhere. In just a few hours we had lost phones, power and were cut off as we had trees down on our property and out on the road. We have older neighbours around 1/4 mile away and, as the cellphone service was out too, we took a hike over the fields next day to make sure they were OK.
So.. how did these snowshoes do? Well, there is NOTHING that I can fault about these American-made snowshoes.. they are easy to get on, even with my heavily-gloved hands and dicky back. They handled the ups and downs manfully, and are unbelievably light! We bought the flotation tails.. I am 180 lbs and hubby is 200 lbs and you definitely benefit. We used our X-Country ski poles and they were quite adequate for the job. These were pretty dreadful snow conditions.. heavy, deep wet stuff but the snowshoes sunk only maybe 3 to 4" The traction is phenomenal due to the steel gripper bars, and, given I have weak ankles and crappy knees, I was amazed at the sense of security you get from the excellent grip of the Evo's. We used them through the next 6 days.. every day! These were handy to walk easily and safely across 3 feet of snow to clear the snow off the ground-mounted solar panels that charge the battery back-up system and also to tow a plastic sled around between the bird-feeders to keep them topped up (We have 50lb capacity bins for sunflower seed etc that we normally load on to the Gator 6 x 6). Anyways, I expect that some of my friends have been persuaded to get some too after our first-rate experience!

Great snowshoes!
I have been always a big fan of MSR snowshoes, and this year's Evo doesn't disappoint.
The straps are easy to get on and off, even with gloves on. They have a huge range of adjustability and will fit most any size boot. I hiked around with my snowboard boots and I still had plenty of room left to adjust the straps.
The holding power of these things is awesome. It's almost impossible to slip on these things due to the gnarly rails that run up the sides.
They have plenty of float, and you get the option to add on the Floatation tails if you're heavier than 180 lbs (which can easily be achieved if you're carrying a big backpack)
These things are awesome and I would suggest them to everyone.

Up until this winter season I have always rented or borrowed snowshoes, so I have had the opportunity to try out different MSR's. I favor the MSR women's 25" lightning shoes because of their more narrow width and lighter composition, but the EVO's are a great all purpose shoe with a friendlier price tag. They have performed well on packed and icy trails (they provided much needed traction on the ice that friends who had Tubbs struggled with) as well as in deeper powder during a trip to Mt. Rainer. I like a good burn, so I generally use them on trails with a fair amount of elevation gain. They are an easy on and off and feel firmly attached to your feet at all times.

Best snowshoes on the ground

I am a naturalist guide and lead groups of people on many snowshoe tours each winter. I have tried every snowshoe on the market and keep coming back to the MSR EVOs as the most superior snowshoe.
The strap design is outstanding - easy on and off in any weather conditions and the the straps don't freeze or collect ice.
The ergonomic shape provides easy cadence when walking, striding, climbing or descending.
There is very little that could break on these and if anything did (I haven't heard or experienced an EVO breaking down), I imagine it would be easy to fix in the field.
Well done MSR - another quality piece of gear that I trust and appreciate.
KP at Campmor on 03/03/2013

For a non-touring beginner snowshoe these are great. They dont fair too well in deep stuff (even with the tail extension) but work extremely well for normal trails. Light, strong, and bulletproof. Only issue is lack of Climbing Heel which the Evo Tour has. It just doesn't seem like one should pay an extra 30$ for 1$'s worth of plastic.
I lend these to my friends who want to try out showshoeing before buying a pair and they never have issues or mechanical failures, and praise its simplicity.
All in all I would recommend these if you are wanting to getting into snowshoeing and staying on trail.

MSR EVO snowshoes

We tried snowshoeing for the first time two weeks ago in Yosemite National Park. We enjoyed it so much that we ordered our own shoes from Campmor. Two days after they arrived we drove to Mt. Pinos here in Southern California, strapped them on and within minutes were out among the firs and pines. We did a four mile hike and had a great time. We are regular hikers and now have another outlet for our hobby. The MSR shoes are well designed, rugged and very easy to use. Even for beginners like us!

Thanks Campmor and MSR.

Great snowshoe, easy on and off, secure

Easy on and off and very secure, my old pair always needed readjusting - these don't. Great traction on ice, haven't had any deep snow yet. Can't wait to see if they will float me - with tails. I'm no lightweight and bought these for lots of use in usually deep snow conditions.

So far, frozen river hiking in 6 inches of snow - they are awesome, so light and great grip. Sure beats my old fashioned bearpaw snowshoes. Love these bindings.
Shelly at Campmor on 01/01/2012

These snowshoes are wonderful. I have used several different kinds of snowshoes and these have been my personal favorite. I love how fast and easy it is to strap them on. The group I was with were fidgiting with there snowshoes forever to get them fitted right. These strap on fast and tight. A lot better than nylon sinching straps that are hard to tighten. The one disadvantage is they are loud on crusty snow. Other than that fantastic.

Luke at on 11/09/2012

Not the lightest or most floaty, but one of the easiest to use. If you keep a pair in the car for cabin trips, friends, etc... these are the ones. If you have AT or splitboard gear and want some snowshoes to putz around on and do flips off banks, these are the ones. Hard to break, and easy to repair (other than the plastic) if you somehow snap a strap.

Made in the USA

Got these to replace my Winter Walkers from a company in Freeport when one of them broke and there were no more in stock. These are superior shoes that are made in the USA. Only got to use them a couple of times before the big thaw and rain took the snow away. But more comfortable walking and good traction on icy snow.

Good for beginner, upgrade imminent

We purchased these MSR EVOS with the matching tails.... we immediately sent them back and went with Eastland Artica Hike 30 snowshoes. The Easton Articas are far superior to these MSR EVO's in quality, ease of use and flotation.

Trouble with straps

light weight, but too hard for me to fasten.
heel strap kept coming undone.
