BearHugTM Binding


Client: Tubbs Snowshoe Co.

The BearHug binding solves a big problem for snowshoes and breaks from the traditional strap system of snowshoe binding with two, one-time adjustments via the popular ratchet-style buckle systems. Once the binding has been fitted to a user's boot, the only necessary closure is a full release in-step strap.
