JoeyBagoDonutsThrough the ringer

Voted 5/5

I knew I wanted a solid product that I could count on. I looked around, researched other styles and brands and kept coming back to the Tubb Mountaineer 25. After I purchased these babies I wanted to take 'em for a test drive. I wanted to really see if these were up to the task. If I was going to break them, I wanted to break them under controlled conditions and not when I was out in the middle of no where. I put nearly twenty miles on these suckers in the first few days I had them. I took them over exposed talus fields, climbed over downed trees, trekked across lakes of solid ice. I put these thing in every situation I could think of including lateral traverses, dry patches in the trail and super steep ascents. The only thing I didn't try was putting them in the microwave. They held up every time, with no exceptions. They preformed above and beyond all my hopes. They have one (brutal) season of use on them and I am very excited for the snow to fall again. I now have no doubt that if your looking for a serious pair of snowshoes, these are the ones. I put the Tubb Mountaineer 25 through the ringer last season and they came out on top. One seriously reliable pair of snowshoes.

These snowshoes are super bomber. I haven't quite put them through the test that JoeyBagoDonuts has, but they have never failed me. I have used mine for a couple of winters now and haven't had any problems with them.
