Wilderness Series

rated 4 of 5 stars Impressive hiking/backcountry snowshoe from long-time maker of snowshoes, Tubbs. Great weight-to-size/flotation with easy on and off buckling mechanism. Heel lift for extended climbing and fairly aggressive traction make for an enjoyable day hiking the snow covered trails here in Colorado. I purchased these snowshoes in mid-January after it had been snowing quite a bit during December. But then it turned warm, unseasonably warm here in the Denver area with 50s-70s for the rest of January and early… Full review

Flex ALP

rated 5 of 5 stars I will review my shoes, the 24 inch model, but my husband has the 28 inch version, and his review is the same as mine...we love these snowshoes! We have found them a nice step-up from our older Tubbs models (Adventure 25 and Eclipse 30), and have been excellent in our uses this year, on varying terrain and snow conditions. We snowshoe on sometimes steep and icy trails, and sometimes trails with unpacked or mushy snow. I have found the design and materials on these snowshoes to be excellent, and… Full review

Frontier Series

rated 2 of 5 stars Nice looking snowshoe, but prone to failure. These were good snowshoes in terms of comfort and performance, and had good bindings that were easy to do up. However, I had two sets in a row that failed in the field. The frame separated on one and the cleat broke on another, just with regular use on snow. One of them squeaked constantly as well. Both pairs went back. Now I'm using a pair from Atlas. We'll see how those hold up. Full review

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
