Wilderness Series

rated 4 of 5 stars Good all-around snowshoe that's worked well for me on both gentle terrain and in the backcountry. The bindings are easy to use and the crampons provide adequate traction on hard packed snow. I bought these snowshoes around Christmas and used them through the 3-month winter hiking season. I found that they performed well in a variety of environments, from powder snow on level trails to steeper, icy uphills. Although they don't have the traction as some of the "alpine" models, they worked well for… Full review

Frontier Series

rated 5 of 5 stars Good bindings. My Easton Artica trails broke and these were available. Seems to be just as good a binding and better crampons. Good buy. Good shoes for the price. They seem on par with the Easton Articas I have.  The heel straps are a bit easier than the Easton ones as my articas (Easton) have nylon/web straps and when they get cold and wet they can stretch a little and make it hard to adjust heels. Not an issue with Tubbs as they use synthetics that feel like biothane to me, so they do not get… Full review

Flex ALP

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Grippy. I upgraded to these after a couple years of suffering through the SLS (Slings Lots'o Snow) pivots of my Atlas shoes. It is very nice to leave the snow on the trail instead of flinging it on my back. The grip of these is amazingly good, and the flex of the deck is appreciated of the steep downhills. The bindings are simple, fast and secure. The heel lift clicks around a little bit, but it never gets in the way and is very appreciated on the extended climbs. Full review

Discovery Series

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Found these at a thrift store several years ago for $30 when retail at the time was $250, as per internet at the time. I would not have paid the retail price but for $30 they've been fabulous. Found these at a thrift store several years ago for $30 when retail at the time was $250, as per internet at the time. I would not have paid the retail price but for $30 they've been fabulous. Lighter weight by far than my real snowshoes, my Browning rawhide and wood beavertails, my go-to shoes for deep snow. … Full review

Flex TRK

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For the casual snowshoer, these snowshoes are a great bang for their buck. Pound for pound, they are a really great product. I found these snowshoes to be quite easy to use. The strapping snugged up fine.  It took a bit to figure out how to keep the straps on the tab so they didn't come loose.  I also liked how they fit on the my pack when I didn't need them. Not all snowshoes are as easy to stow.  I frankly forgot that I had them on my feet most of the time. The flex of these shoes is one of… Full review
