    Get to those places most snowshoes can't take you.

    Venture off the beaten track and into the backcountry with the Crescent Moon Gold 10 Snowshoe. Designed for rugged backcountry travel, deeper snow, or a hiker carrying a backpack (or all three), the Gold 10 comes complete with extra sets of stainless steel traversing claws to handle the steep and the deep.
    • Single Pull Loop binding envelops the entire foot for a stable, secure feel and cinches down easily with (you guessed it) a single pull
    • Polymer gel straps will not freeze, stretch, or come out of adjustment
    • Stainless steel three-claw traction underfoot incorporates a toe claw and extra traversing claws for traction in all directions, even on steep or sideways slopes
    • Platform includes TIG–welded aircraft-grade aluminum and PVC-free PU that is lightweight and durable
    • Teardrop shape lets you walk with a natural stride without waddling to avoid stepping on the other shoe
    • Will accommodate a person plus gear up to 225 pounds
    • Made in Boulder, CO with as many recycled materials as possible in a wind-powered facility
    • Item #CMO0052

    3. Crescent Moon Gold 10 ($279)

    Crescent Moon Gold 10 snowshoes

    Type: Backcountry

    Length: 32 in.

    Weight: 4 lbs. 15 oz.

    What we like: Made in the U.S.A. and best-in-class binding comfort.

    What we don’t: Traction falls a little short on steep inclines.

    Women’s version: Crescent Moon Gold 15

    The Crescent Moon Gold 10 is a beefed-up and longer backcountry version of the popular Gold 9 above. In addition to five more inches of length, it shares a similar stainless steel traction system but with an extra set of claws near the ball of your foot. The teardrop design remains and is great for active snowshoers that really like to move. The Gold 10 still isn't as grippy or light as the MSR Lightning Ascent above, but it handles a wider variety of terrain from trails to powdery rolling hills and moderate ascents.

    Keep in mind that these shoes can only handle hikers up to 225 pounds in average snow conditions, so larger folks or those carrying a lot of equipment may want to consider the expedition grade Gold 17 (37 inches long and can handle up to 300 pounds). The Gold 17 is overkill for recreational snowshoeing but can handle off-trail use through deep snow with relative ease. As with all Crescent Moon Gold Series snowshoes, the 10 is made in the U.S.A. and comes with a lifetime warranty.

    review of the Gold 10 by the Robb Report

    Personal best choice of snowshoe

      This is by far the best snowshoe i have ever used for back country access while snowboarding. the ratchets and the boot compatible binding are incredibly easy to use and will adjust to any size snowboard boot. care free in terms of maintenance, and you rarely have to worry about popping out of the binding while hiking. the main (and only) problem i have run into is finding a pack that makes for easy carrying of the shoes while you're on your board. A major plus for me, the candy apple red model always puts a smile on my face when i look down at my feet. The color of this shoe beats any other model i have seen. feel free to ask any questions

      I bought the crescent moon carrying bag specific for these snowshoes. Then I simply made a set of strap extensions for my Dakine Heli pack. Matching buckles can be found at any quality outdoor store. I sewed the top extension to the snowshoe bag in place- just so I can't lose it. This way I can keep them ready in their bag and just grab them with my pack, clip them on and go.

      i picked up the burton riders pack. it features a vertical board carry, which i found can be adjusted to the wide toe of these snowshoes pretty well. if you ski, the closure straps on the sides can be used as a ski carry too, though i dont think thats what burton was going for (still works very well). its a plus size day pack and it can carry a shovel, food, and extra layers comfortably.

      what does this shoe have over the Crescent...

      what does this shoe have over the Crescent Moon Silver 10?

      I know it has been a while since your question, but for anyone else wondering what the advantages are here you go. The Gold series has a better foot harness, footbed, and ratchet straps for the heels. They are great snowshoes!
