Mountaineer Series

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Tubbs Moutaineer 36s are lightweight snowshoes that have incredible traction on steep hills and packed snow, while also excelling in softer snow due to their surface area. The bindings are comfortable, secure, and offer quick entry and exit. Last winter when I broke my Tubbs Wilderness 36 snowshoes, I needed to get another pair within a week in order to be ready for a weekend of snowshoeing I'd planned with some friends. I decided on the Tubbs Mountaineer 36s because I wanted to get further… Full review

Wilderness Series

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent snowshoes for use on all but the steepest terrain. Lightweight, with comfortable bindings that are easy to enter and exit even with gloves on, they have plenty of flotation to take you just about anywhere. About 3 years ago I bought myself a pair of Tubbs Wilderness 36 snowshoes to replace my old Yubashoes Borderlines that I'd given to a friend's son so the 3 of us could hit the trails together. The Wilderness is a great snowshoe! You can get them on or off in seconds, the bindings are… Full review

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
