User Review: Tubbs Discovery Series
Source: thrift store
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.
- Crampons good for hills
- Good for not deep or lightly packed snow
- Not for deep snow
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.
The Discovery's are not good in deep snow. I'm a 150 lb. woman, 5'8" tall. The Discovery's are 27". The Discovery's sink way further down into deep soft snow and snow builds up on the decking so I have to tip my foot every step to dump it off. The solid decking also provides a spot for my Labrador Retriever's feet to land, something he can't do on the tail of my beavertails, and he causes me to face plant — all part of the fun. :)
