All in all, very disappointing and really poorly designed.

My thought was "I'll just tighten them REAL tight", I did, and the binding catch snapped right off!!!

My wife and I wanted to get into snowshoeing for a winter activity and we ended up buying the Tubbs Xplore snowshoes. The other two reviews are correct. The bindings will not stay tight and a piece of plastic catches under the snowshoe when you raise you leg to take a step. I don't understand how such a poorly designed binding like this makes it to production.

Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

I bought this snowshoe because it is priced well and I liked the video that showed how the boot binder worked. Looked easy and I also liked the color and design.

I have used them a couple times out here at the lake when their was 8 inches of snow on the ground. I like them a lot and the bindings are fairly easy to tighten around your boots. My wife has the womens version of the Xplore snowshoe. It is exactly the same but smaller.

The only complaint we have is that if you don't get the bindings tight, there is a plastic piece that the straps go through that flair out and catch under the snowshoe while you are walking and pivoting the binding up by the toes. When it catches, the binding quits pivoting and you have to stop and try to tighten the strap again. The plastic part that flares out and catches is hard to get straight again when it is cold and your hands are cold and the person with the problem doesn't want to take off the snowshoe while you are in deep snow. If you get the strap tight enough to start, it shouldn't be a problem, but through use, the strap has slipped on us and we have to stop and tighten it. I don't particularly like the design of this, but we can live with it because of the price and quality of the rest of the snowshoe. It is probably the fact that the cold makes the plastic in the bindings stiff and we just don't have the strength to get it tight enough to keep the part from catching while in use.

I don't normally leave reviews, good or bad. But, I feel compelled to do so with regard to these snowshoes because I think that they're getting an undeservedly bad reputation.

I received these snowshoes as a gift. Based on the negative reviews, I would have exchanged them had the store been open today. I'm really glad that I kept them! I just got back from a 5+ mile trek which included varying depths of fresh powdery snow and some steep slopes. The Tubbs Xplore 30" snowshoes and their bindings worked great for me. During the whole 5 mile trek, I just had to adjust one of the bindings one time shortly after I started. The need for that adjustment was due to operator error. For the rest of the time, everything worked great with no additional adjustments needed.

As with most equipment, I think that there are some tricks that dramatically improve the performance. With regard to the bindings, which seem to be the focus of the negative reviews, here's what I learned.

1) There is a proper "left" and "right" shoe. The "L" and "R" designations aren't overly obvious. But, they can be found on the foot pad portion of the bindings.
2) I squeezed the front bindings together so that they have a bigger opening for the front of my boot. Then, I slid my boot in as far as it would go so that there were no gaps on the sides.
3) The position of the heel strap seems to be important. I slid the heel straps up so that they pulled into the compressible part of the back of my boot just above the harder heel reinforcement. That way, the strap couldn't slip down, which is what happened the only time that the binding came loose.

The bindings on this model are terrible. They do not stay tight, and there is no means with which to keep it tight. The heel strap is cheap plastic and too stiff to pull tight in cold weather. Holes are too big to hold the tooth. All in all, very disappointing and really poorly designed. Typical cheap Chinese quality.

The snow shoe worked great except for the fact i had to re-tighten the bindings every 1/4 mile, the bindings are a cheap plastic strap an has no front and rear support so your shoe can slide forward and back when the binding comes loose, other than that i was walking around on 7ft of snow, next time I'm just going to skin up the mountain with ski's,its much easier with the mechanical advantage.
