    Snowshoes for a variety of conditions!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    These are great snowshoes for the price! I used them in a variety of snow types. Soft, crunchy, slushy. They work great on steep and flat conditions. I used them with snowboard boots, but they work with a variety of shoes and boots. I wish they had the heal bar for climbing steep slopes.

    Mind - officially blown

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I thought I needed women's snow shoes, I figured that I would be constantly stepping on myself if I didn't have an aggressively-shaped shoe.

    I was so wrong!

    We have at least 2 feet of snow so I borrowed my old man's longer, wider shoes to break the first trail around the place. The Tubbs Xplore worked really well!

    Good traction, great loft, and I had no problem whatsoever with my stride. I enjoyed the heck out of them.

    My Atlas Elektra 10's have just a little more grip going down hill, they have more aggressive heel traction. However, I found myself skiing a little bit on the long, steep stretches in both pairs.

    Yesterday we cleared a dozen fallen trees that were mucking up our snowshoe trail. Dad finally marred the very tough Tubbs anodizing job - he nipped the tip of his snowshoe with his chainsaw! So there you have it, Tubbs are chainsaw-proof!

    This weekend got me thinking that I may want to pick up a pair of men's snowshoes for carrying a backpack or for truly crappy snow conditions. I'll certainly be pointing more people toward Tubbs snowshoes.

    Great Snowshoe - Tail-draggers

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I could do without the cutesy misspelling of "Xplore" but other than that, Tubbs did a great job on these snowshoes.

    My dad picked up a 30" pair and has used them for one season, so far they've performed really well and show no signs of wear.

    Seriously, there are no scrapes on the anodized tubing - my 'shoes look like a beaver with an angle grinder got after them.

    Length and bindings should drive your snowshoe choice.

    More length = more loft. Almost everyone I hang out with opts for the longest snowshoes they can find because we appreciate good loft, even in crappy snow.

    Also, the ability to carry more weight cannot be oversold - every activity is more fun with food and booze along.

    The Tubbs Xplore - seriously Tubbs, wtf, the misspelled name is also not plural? Why!? You know you sell them in pairs, right? *huff* Okay, I'm calm.

    The Tubbs Explorers (let's just go with that, yeah?) are tail-draggers. That means the bindings allow your foot to flex naturally without lifting the back of the snowshoe.

    Snow builds up on the deck of tail-draggers and has to be manually shaken off.

    Some bindings have a torsion system that causes the tail of the snowshoe to flip with every step, this sheds snow buildup. Most folks argue that tail-flippers require less effort on the part of the hiker.

    I have tail-flippers, I don't dislike them but all that flipped snow strikes my butt before it hits the ground. My bindings have loosened after a lot of miles so I've effectively had both systems. I prefer a dry ass - tail-draggers rule.

    My dad is 5'7" and 178ish - obviously the 30" Tubbs loft him just fine. He opted for length so that we could use these backpacking or running a trapline. The heel and toe crampons appear to be effective so far.
