Tubbs Mountaineer Snowshoe Review

I got these to use before committing to a splitboard, and I love them. They are super light, pack down really well, and have EXCELLENT grip on all sorts of sketchy snow situations.

I used mine hiking up volcanoes all over Chile this past winter (2015), and from scree scrambling to hardpack to ice to deep pow to corn snow and everything in between, these snowshoes always pull through.

I especially like the heel crampon feature, which has more of a true crampon feature than most other snowshoes, which have a serrated “blade.” Also cool is the heel riser for ascending anything vertical.

Finally, these snowshoes are awesome since they fit my snowboard boots comfortably—and the quick-adjust makes for easier “transitions” when getting in and out of them.
