Backcountry-ready kit for winter hikers exploring more rugged, off-trail terrain

The MSR Evo Ascent is a legendary snowshoe with DuoFit™ bindings and a classic crampon feel for dependability on the trail. The MSR Evo series has been a staple in their line for years and is renowned for its excellent traction, unsurpassed durability, and ease of use. Thanks to its Televator™ heel lifter, the Evo Ascent can take on all types of terrain, from gentle slopes to aggressive mountaineering. You may never have to buy another pair of snowshoes! Entirely manufactured and assembled in Seattle, Washington.

The DynaLock Explore Pole offers 3-section packability and the reliable strength of full aluminum construction, making it a versatile pole for snowshoers and mountaineers tackling everything from local hikes to distant expeditions. The pole’s dual DynaLock mechanisms offer a full range of length adjustment, along with the confidence of tool-free tensioning—which allows the clamping force to be adjusted on the fly. With both powder and trekking baskets included, DynaLock Explore poles are primed for all-mountain, all-season exploration.
