- 37" x 10", 5.6lbs per pair, recommended up to 300 lbs, designed for deep snow conditions
- BINDING: The Crescent Moon SPL (Single Pull Loop) binding has been recognized as the best binding year after year by the media, testers and customers alike. The all foot encompassing binding system is made of a flexible polymer which wraps around your foot and provides excellent support and comfort and will not come out of adjustment. With a simple pull of the loop on top of the binding the entire harness system is tightened – or loosened – with one hand - even with gloves on! The heel mechanism is as simple as ratcheting forward to the perfect setting. It is a quick and easy entry and exit. Features spring loaded cam and ratchet buckles. The Gold 17's have the larger version of our standard SPL binding and fits sizes 10 to 15 including pack boots and most snowboard boots.
- Platform: Our Tear Drop shaped frame provides outstanding maneuverability without loss of floatation. This unique shape allows you to walk and run naturally without changing your stride or waddling. The frames are made with 6063 aircraft grade aluminum tubing and tig welded for strength. The decking is lightweight, durable, highly abrasion resistant, and quiet, noticeably different from plastic snowshoes.
- Traction: Aggressive 3 crampon stainless steel traction system provides outstanding grip in all terrains, but particularly in hard pack and icy conditions, and on climbs and traverses. Crescent Moon is the only snowshoe to have a toe claw which is important for digging in when climbing hills or mountains and helps with push-off when hiking or running.
- Made in Boulder, CO, USA using environmentally considerate manufacturing processes and components. Our snowshoes are 95% recyclable through our take back program. Limited lifetime warranty.

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. This helps a little when on steep terrain but on moderate to flat, it's a little frustrating. I felt as if the binding was mounted too far forward. I am about 220 unloaded which is the weight they are made for. I have never felt this with any other snowshoe. Maybe things would even out if I carried more weight but I doubt it.
I hope this didn't come across as a rant. The binding strap broke last season so I took a year to write this not wanting to write a knee-jerk review. My wife also has a pair but of a smaller size and she loves them, especially the bindings.
For now I will keep using my Tubbs which are starting to tear a little but that's not bad after 16 years.
