The MSR Lightning Flash Women's snowshoe provides ultra-lightweight, all-condition traction and adaptability for rolling terrain. An easy-to-use, fully adjustable binding and 360 Degree Traction Frame combine to make the Lightning Flash a lot of shoe for the price.
You don't want snowshoes designed for Everest-like icy steeps and elephant-like pack weight if your normal tour is a few hours on flat or rolling terrain with a small daypack. The MSR Women's Lightning Flash Snowshoe has a lightweight design and narrow, women-specific profile so you can move fast with maximum efficiency.
