Price Paid: $119
I had these snowshoes for about 4 hours until I was ready to throw them away. The binding is what kills them. If you have feet bigger than size 11 they snap and click and slowly fall apart as you walk in them. Then if you try and pull the binding tighter on your foot there's a good chance its going to break in your hand.
I'm sure Tubbs has some better brands but you get what you pay for with the Xplore series. I payed $119 for them and returned them and bought a pair of Atlas snowshoes. I would not recommend them to a friend.
currently retails for:
$77.97 - $129.95
