The Tubbs Vertex is the perfect snowshoe for winter hiking on flat to rolling terrain. The Fit-Step frame features an upturned tail reducing stress on hip, knee and ankle joints, while the rotating toe cord drops with each step, shedding snow. An easy to adjust ReAct binding fits a variety of footwear and provides a stable platform. The Women's specific snowshoe is lighter in weight and provides a tapered frame shape to better accommodate a woman's shorter stride. Durable carbon steel crampons provide years or traction and security over icy spots. A great value for a feature-packed snowshoe.

We are looking to buy snowshoes for my wife who weighs about 140 lbs. She is a beginner. We are looking at the Tubbs Vertex at Campmor, and are undecided if we should get the 21" or the 25" size. Thanks for any help.

If she decides to carry a pack even a day pack in powdery snow the 21 will be a bit small to provide goo flotation. If she will be on more packed trails a 21 would be good because the need for flotation would be reduced. A 25 would be better in deeper snow that is not packed.
