Brandonwrote a review of Crescent Moon Gold 10 Snowshoe on March 29, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
My brother uses a different version of Crescent Moon for snowshoe running and he swears by this company. When I told him I was buying snowshoes he basically forced me to get a pair of Crescent Moons (I still remember when he told me to get the Atari Lynx instead of the Gameboy, a decision that to this day, I still regret)
But I'm glad I heeded his advice. These snowshoes are absolutely amazing. I personally find them incredibly light, they maintain their grip, and the binding system is top notch and easily accommodates various boots and shoe sizes while still snugly securing your feet. Yesterday, I just used these to head up the steep hills of an abandoned ski resort off Guanella Pass in CO--and they performed amazing well.
I don't know why this brand isn't written about more, as they make a truly great product. I haven't used these extensively as I would like, so I can't attest to their durability--but my brother has put over a thousand miles on his own pair and they're still being used.
Keep it up Crescent Moon!
