- Q & A
Worth the money
There are snowshoes available which are a fraction of the cost of these model Tubbs. Personally I was so glad to have spent the money primarily because I had my snow shoes off and on in a matter of minutes while everyone else was struggling for 20 minutes with the bindings on their snowshoes. This was most especially important when it was so cold you werenât able to have your hands outside your gloves for more than 60 seconds at a time. And these snowshoes have The steel points around the entire perimeter of the snow shoe and that makes for a much more aggressive and reliable tool which provides so much confidence. What I will say though is to be cautious not to get a size too lengthy. Specifically, for me, during hikes in the Catskill Mountains of New York where the trails are twisting and turning with every footfall I was constantly tripping over the back edge of the snowshoe because I had purchased a model which was simply longer than usable for the train I was on. Yes I Purchased the length because of my weight and the weight of the pack I was carrying however I believe I could have gotten away with a few inches shorter and not have the problems with getting the snowshoes caught on themselves then tripping quite frequently which is frustrating and tiring. Otherwise, if you have the money, purchase this product and youâll have no regrets.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fits like a glove!! love wearing these to trek up into fresh snowy territory, whether it's a casual hike or boot packing with the ski's, these snowshoes are light, fit great, rarely get caught stumbling on my own heels. Incredibly simple design - boa system keeps everything on tight, and takes less than 5 seconds to take on or off. Lastly - the crampons are fantastic, never lost traction in my steps. Speaking of steps taken, due to the light weight of these, you can go for days without any sort of foot fatigue.
I'd recommend these to ANYbody wanting to get into snowshoeing.
