Flotation

Pro-Step

Pro-Step
The Pro-Step frame combines a continuous frame bend with longer, lower rise for improved flotation. The lower height nose packs easily, while the tail bend reduces impact on your joints.

SoftTec Decking

SoftTec Decking
Tubbs SoftTec™ decking provides durable, lightweight flotation.

Articulation

RII Revolution Response

RII Revolution Response
Energy efficient and effective, RII delivers shock absorbing lateral flex and quick side slope responsiveness to maintain a natural foot position in all conditions. Full step rotation allows the tail of the snowshoe to drop, shedding snow and allowing the toe crampon to bite deeply.

Control

ActiveFit Binding

ActiveFit Binding
Gender specific, asymmetric ActiveFit+™ binding provides the perfect combination of control, support, comfort and ease of use. Patented Control Wings™ center the heel, while dual pivot point and padded midfoot deliver a custom fit without pressure points. Men’s binding fits up to size 13 boots; women’s sized for 5-11 boots.

Traction

Anaconda Crampon

Anaconda Crampon
The razor-sharp, carbon steel Anaconda™ toe crampon has eight sharp teeth that provide constant contact in all types of terrain.

Python Heel Crampon

Python Heel Crampon
The aggressive Python heel crampon, centered under the boot, delivers enhanced downhill braking traction.

      Comments about <em>Tubbs Snowshoes Men's Mountaineer Snowshoe</em>:

      I bought these in about 2004. They came with bindings that were not great...They wouldn't accommodate my large feet. I had to modify them and even at that they didn't perform very well. When the current bindings on the Mountaineer came out I bought a pair and installed them on my old Tubbs...what a vast improvement in function and they accommodated my large feet without having to be modified. My old Tubbs took the new bindings without a problem. Since then I bought another pair of Mountaineers which I use for recreation. My two pair are both 36" in length. I'm going to buy a 30" pair for those situations were I don't need a long snowshoe. My old Tubbs I use in my profession as a land surveyor and they are very tough...I can't believe the abuse they have endured.

        Comments about <em>Tubbs Snowshoes Men's Mountaineer Snowshoe</em>:

        I believe this to be a dependable snowshoe although a bit pricey for a snowshoe that is only used a couple months out of the year. The snowshoe is light weight and works very well with only one noticeable issue. The issue I have is the snowshoe is used for hunting but it is very very loud especially when the temperature is very cold. That is my only complaint, I wish I could spray some lubricant on the shoes to reduce the noise that they create while walking.

        Thanks, these are great snowshoes.

        Comments about <em>Tubbs Snowshoes Men's Mountaineer Snowshoe</em>:

        I got these Mountaineer 36s about 3 weeks ago to replace a set of Wilderness 36s I broke due to a mishap on my part. The first time I used them I took a little hike through the trackless woods, climbing every steep stream bank and snow-covered glacial erratic I could find. The much more aggressive toe crampons on the Mountaineers made climbs that had me struggling in my Wildernesses downright easy. A few kicks to set the toe crampons, made easier by a toe cord that rotated further, and I went up like a lineman up a telephone pole. The bindings are very comfortable; the padding on top takes pressure off your foot and the shoes are quite easy to put on and take off considering how securely your foot is held in place. My Wilderness 36s were easier but not quite as secure. I think the extra 10-15 seconds per 'shoe is a very reasonable trade off.

        Now for the cons. Like another reviewer said, I don't find the snowboard-ish graphics very attractive. Maybe a solid color option could be printed for us old farts LOL. And I'm not too impressed with the amount of traction the heel crampon offers. On wet, slushy downhills, it's hard to keep your feet from sliding out from under you unless you put a LOT of weight on your poles and keep your center of gravity forward so the rearmost of the toe crampons dig in. Of course, then you feel like you'll pitch forward onto your face. I'd like to see the heel crampons from the Xpeditions on the Mountaineers, those things really put the brakes on!

        But all in all I'd recommend these to anyone looking for snowshoes to take them wherever they want to go and come back home again.

          Comments about <em>Tubbs Snowshoes Men's Mountaineer Snowshoe</em>:

          Similar to the experiences of other northern foresters, between four foresters we have had 4 pairs of Tubbs Mountaineer 36"x10" break this winter. Every time the metal of the frame sheers in the same location. None of these breaks have occured when bridging down timber or other hard objects, just wear and tear of deep snow. Great snowshoe for the recreational user but would not recommend for 40 hours/week work applications. Older Tubbs seemed to be higher quality and more durable.

            Use snowshoes everyday for work in the woods. First pairs binding tabs ripped after 10 days of use and let the bindings slip off the frame every now and again. Returned that pair, Second pair binding tabs ripped after 4 days of use and frame bent at binding tabs. Customer service only said that should'nt happen even when I tried to explain a new replacement pair would just do the same thing
