Product Description

Manly snowshoes, and highly recommended for work, or play, in conditions where you're going through unconsolidated snow or carrying a big pack. For a 36" long snowshoe, the Gold 17s are remarkably lightweight, and for hiking across untracked deep snow (where even the huskies don't go) they provide outstanding floatation, enhanced traction, and quiet trekking because of the flexible 'TGS' decking used. The Gold 17 features the larger version of the SPL binding and will accommodate up to size 15, including snowboard boots. So, start the expedition, and remember, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes.

I have been snowshoeing fairly consistently since 1992. I have been using Tubbs Sierras and have tried several other brands such as Sherpa and Atlas. I now live in southern BC where the snow is a lot fluffier so thought it was time for a larger platform. I heard a lot of great things about CM and have been told they are supposed to be the Cadillac of Snowshoes. Unlike Tubbs and Atlas, CMs are still made in the US which made the choice even easier.

I will start with the positive. They are amazingly light for the size and the binding system is very easy to use even w/ gloves. It's brilliant. All of the adjustments for tightening and loosening are made so you can easily manipulate it with a gloved or mitted hand.

Unfortunately, the second time I used them the heel strap broke. CM said it was because "some customers overtighten the bindings resulting in broken straps" so I guess I am not alone. I was on very steep deep snow and it was tough going. I am not one to over tighten something needlessly whether it be a pack, snowshoe, or whatever. The bindings on my old Sierras' are made of thick nylon webbing which is made to be pulled as hard as you are able to, but the CMs are made of a thinner material so I took this into consideration when tightening by trying to put a finger between the binding and my boot etc... The bottom line is I was being careful. Having said that, if I did over tighten, then there must be a fine line between too tight and too loose which shouldn't be that way with back country gear, especailly with something you are adjusting w/ a gloved hand. It made me worry a little if and when they would break again. Hopefully not 5 miles from the car.

My main complaint however is the fronts tend to nose down.
