Snowshoeing Gear

I just got back from a great snowshoe hike and thought it would be a good opportunity to talk some gear. While I don't apply the same system to every hike, this video shows some of the typical things I carry when snowshoeing. I skipped over certain things like hydration and snow pants but you'll get a pretty good idea of what I usually carry. What's in YOUR pack?

Hey Jason,

I havent shoed in years. My tubbs are just sitting in the closet. We dont get too much snow here in NC. sorry to get off track but I thought I would ask how the fly fishing has been going for you. I know thats another hobby we share.

Hey Lance,
Well, it's slowed down a bit now because of the weather. But I' working on a project you might be interested in. I'll make an announcement when it's ready.

What is this "snow" of which you speak? And why is everything white in this video? I am confused.

Some Old Guy,
You are not skilled in the ways of snow? HEATHEN!

I feel so ashamed, but I really can't remember the last time I saw any of that stuff on the ground. Blowing around in the air once a year, maybe, kind of like clumpy fog.

Where did you get the improved crampons for the Tubbs snowshoes. They look great!

Jason Klass said...

Hey Karl,
I just called Tubbs and asked them if they would sell me a pair of the crampons. I think they were about $60 or so. They were happy to sell them to me. There was one extra screw in the new crampons so I had to drill an extra hole in the foot plate of the snowshoes.

I really like your videos! I totally agree on the handwarmers - that is the most important thing I have in my pack when I'm snowshoeing :)
