User Review: Tubbs Women's Mountaineer Series
Price Paid: $175
I have the women's 25 snowshoe, and with this being the first snowshoes I have owned I am very pleased with them.
I did a good bit of research when deciding which snowshoes to invest in, I wanted something that would be of good enough quality to tackle deep powder in the backcountry as well as flat land in the prairie.
These shoes definitely live up to my expectations, the straps are sound, I have never had a problem with them loosening up during the hike and the large base was sufficient for my 150 pound weight. The extra crampons on the bottoms make for a firm footing with very minimal sliding on hillsides and uneven terrain.
My only gripe about the shoes is that the plastic decking has developed a small gash after just one season of use. I was definitely not gentle on the snowshoes but I was not overly harsh either and I feel that such a crack should not have happened through routine use.
