Buying some lightning ascents and was hoping someone could hep with sizing. I'm planning on buying two models, a womens lightning ascent for my 130 lb gf and a mens model for a 140 lb me (without packs). According to MSR's chart, this puts us squarely in the 22" packed snow size, and 25" deeper snow size. After reading tons of posts and reviews all over the web, I still dont know which to choose. I've never been snowshoeing, so I dont know which way to go.
For general sierra snowshoeing, which size do you recommend?
