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

    I recently purchased two pairs of Xplore TUBBS snowshoes. I bought one men's 25 xplore for a size ten shoe male, one women's 21 xplore for myself and I where a size seven and a half in shoes and they were a great fit for both my boyfriend and I and we can't wait to get out and use them again. They are the perfect beginner snowshoe. Both straps on the shoes were easy to figure out and adjust as needed. We both wore heavier boots with the snowshoes and could adjust the top straps and heal straps to fit with ease.

    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.
