If you feign a painful grimace, you'll look hardcore.

What's more mountain-manly than the durable Tubbs Men's Mountaineer Snowshoe, with beastly features like Anaconda and Python crampons for venomous bite into slick steeps? With a snowshoe this gnarly, you don't have to tell anyone that it also comforts and coddles with its light weight, soft decking, impact-easing frame, and shock-absorbing articulation. Your secret's safe, tough guy.

  • Pro-Step frame features a continuous bend with longer, lower rise for optimal flotation, lower nose that packs easily, and impact-reducing upturned tail
  • R2 Revolution Response absorbs shock with lateral flex and quick side-slope responsiveness; full-step rotation sheds snow for ultimate crampon bite
  • Asymmetric ActiveFit binding features control wings that center the heel and padded midfoot that gives a custom fit without pressure points
  • Razor-sharp Anaconda toe crampon boasts eight constant-contact carbon steel teeth; Python heel crampon delivers downhill braking
  • SoftTec decking is durable, lightweight for optimal float, smooth, and soft
  • ActiveLift 19-degree binding powers up steep terrain with a strain- and fatigue-reducing heel lift that easily pulls up or folds down

Strongly Recommend

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I've used Tubbs snowshoes for years and never had a problem. These Mountaineers are very tight and aggressive on steep and difficult terrain. If you are serious about traveling in a winter alpine environment, this is the snowshoe for you!

Strongly Recommend

Great all-purpose snowshoe

I bought my Mountaineer 36 snowshoes last winter to replace a broken pair of Tubbs Wilderness 36s, and noticed an increase in traction on hills right away. The toe crampons are much more aggressive and really give a lot of bite on ascents. On descents, however, the lack of a really aggressive heel crampon or braking bars can lead to a bit of unplanned skiing if you put too much weight on the back of the 'shoes. I've found the best method for descending steep slopes is to keep your weight over the toe crampons as much as possible and put a lot of weight on your poles. Like Charles H. said in his review, if a lot of climbing is in order I use my MSR Lightning Ascents, they have far more traction on both ascents and descents. Plus you can sidehill like a champ with them, which is something no tube-framed snowshoe is good at.

Anyway, I'm giving these a 4-star rating because while I'm not really sure they quite live up to the "Mountain" part of their name, they're perfect for anyone who finds that day-hiking snowshoes aren't quite aggressive enough for the terrain they travel. The bindings are very comfortable and very secure, giving you plenty of control to maneuver even 36" 'shoes through the woods, and as long as you make sure to tighten the 2 forward toe straps by pulling on the rearward ones (it'll be obvious once you see the bindings) you'll never have to worry about the bindings loosening up on you. Two people wearing these snowshoes can break a really nice, wide trail, and when I wear these on outings with friends that's exactly what I always seem to find myself doing!


Great for flat or rolling terrain.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have a pair of Tubbs Mountaineer Snowshoes that are about 3 years old. I use them to go snow caving up at Paradise on Mt. Rainier. I have the 30" length and with my pack am at the limit of 250lbs. At this weight they do sink a bit but not bad considering how much weight I'm carrying. The down side for me is once you get into steep terrain they do slip so you have to be careful. If I know I'm going to be climbing I use my 22' MSR Lightning Ascents. I give up a lot of flotation but gain traction. As long as you stay on flat or rolling terrain they are great. There is no perfect snowshoe for every terrain but these are worth it as long as you don't get too crazy.

I've never had any quality issues with the Mountaineer snowshoes and I would say I have asked a lot of them considering where I've been with them. I actually prefer the binding to the MSR.


watch out for tubbs

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I bought a pair of explorers and on my second trip out the front prongs snapped right off...on both shoes....two km later my wife broke off both of hers...tubbs has been around a very long time but I think they have lowered the quality quite a bit.....I now own a pair of msr ascents, they cost more but the traction is second to none, light, and so far very durable. I also use my msr for running up hill and down with no closing, just spend a little more and avoid the cheap crap that tubbs has become..

Hi, what size do I need? I wear a US size...

Hi, what size do I need? I wear a US size 11 shoe.

The size is determined by your body weight, not shoe size. See the recommended user weight under the tech specs. I weigh 160lbs and own a pair 25" Tubbs snowshoes.

Also take into consideration how much you will typically carry in your pack.

I have had these shoes for the last 2 winters and they have never failed to perform. The binding is super stable and will stay tight all day. Once I tighten them down, I never have to re-tighten. You cant say that about many of the other snow shoes.

The binding is very user friendly and only requires you to tighten 2 straps. When I go with friends I am always the first one with my snow shoes on and the the first one with them off once we get back to the parking lot.

The Heel Lift is amazing. It makes going up the steep and deep stuff much easier. If you do much extended climbing, the heel lift is a must, regardless of what shoe you get.

Another feature I love about these shoes is how tough they are. They do weigh a little more than some of the competitors shoes, but they are bomber.

Lastly, the way the shoe pivots is great. It simply rotates rather than throw snow up the back of your pants and cloths.

I have taken these shoes up ridges waist deep in snow as well as up rivers that have frozen as they run down the canyon. Overall a super bomber shoe.

Overall, my favorite. If you get these, you will not be disappointed.

Here is a pic of a winter excursion I did with my Tubbs.

Hello. I am almost sold on the mountaineers - just one question. Err 2 questions...What do you weigh and what size snowshoes did you purchase?
