Tubbs Frontier Snowshoe - Women's
frustrating heel issue!!!!!
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought these snow shoes to replace the ones I had for 10 years. Loved the snowshoe and the ease of the foot binding. The heel strap is another story. The design does not allow you to tighten and have it stay put. The strap would come loose and slide down my boot. I am returning them today just for that reason. I did notice that on the Wilderness and Journey Shoes they have a different heel binding. Might try one of those. If Tubbs were to fix this issue I would would buy The frontier again.
Solid Start to Snowshoeing
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Feels like a trapper trekking over the snow in the woman's Frontier Tubbs snowshoes. They work well on the flats and hills, allowing for a little snow to pass through the frame so sinking isn't an issue. Super easy to strap on, but did have some problems with the back strap sliding off. Fixed that by pointing the toes of hiking boots down into front and using gravity to help buckle the back straps as tight as possible.
How do you decide whether to order 21" or...
How do you decide whether to order 21" or 25"since my weight would fit either one?
When your weight fits both sizes, I would suggest looking at your terrain. If you usually go in deep powder, size up to have more flotation. If you are usually on packed trails, I'd size down so you can have more maneuverability. Hope that helps!
