These snowshoes are excellent! Very easy to put on and take off, lightweight and walking is as easy as without them.
I did several weeks of research as these will be used for search and rescue purposes.
I had the opportunity to demo them at an avalanche training and while so many struggled with frustrating loose bindings....mine didn't budge once, all day long.
If I had a complaint it would be float is not as good as the larger models, they still did fine but I personally would have preferred a bit more.
Overall they are a great snowshoe, I highly recommend them.

Slip those little booties on your dog's paws, strap the Crescent Moon Women's Gold 13 Snowshoe to your boot, and hit your favorite trail for your morning outing. Crescent Moon designed this shoe with a woman's shorter, narrower stride in mind, so you don't have to waddle to avoid tripping over yourself. Which is good, because you already have to pay attention so as not to trip on your exceptionally clueless mutt; good thing the Gold 13 is so maneuverable.

Crescent Moon was the first snowshoe manufacturer (1997) to design a women's specific model and series of shoes to accommodate the differences of a woman's stride. The Gold 13 features a frame which has been bent with a very steep nose and tapered tail. Because of this unique teardrop shape, with each step, the shoes will clear away from themselves within the distance of your own natural stride without forcing you to adapt a new walking style, like other shapes do. The Gold 13A AAs are exceptionally responsive, lightweight, and comfortable on any trail. 3.95 lbs/pair Recommended for women snowshoers up to 165 lbs on trails and rolling hills 8.5 x 24.5 in, exaggerated tear drop shape SPL binding system which provides a perfect fit 3 stainless steel crampons including a toe claw for climbing Sapphire Blue and Transparent Teal frame colors Women's Trail Snowshoes

Crescent Moon was the first snowshoe manufacturer to design a women's specific model and series of shoes to accommodate the differences of a woman's stride. The Gold 13 features a frame which has been bent with a very steep nose and tapered tail to allow the shoes to pass by each other without changing the way you normally walk. With each step, the shoes will clear away from each other within the distance of your own natural stride. With the new 09/10 changes to the binding system you should expect an even greater snowshoe experience than ever before with more lateral stability and a huge stomp pad the size of a landing strip for your heel to touch down on and never stray from center. you'll be flying up those hills.
The Gold 13 Mountain Hiking Snowshoes for Women by Crescent Moon are designed for snowshoers up to 165lbs. What really makes the Gold 13 worth considering is the combination of the SPL binding and the unique, exaggerated tear drop shape of the frames which makes them exceptionally responsive and easy to hike in. The light weight and comfortable design make the Gold 13s feel very maneuverable in tight timber, or fast and agile on packed trails. Stainless steel traction from heel to toe provide excellent grip on icy or hard pack snow and give you that cat-like sensation as you glide across the fall line. The Gold 13 comes in two colors, blissful burgundy or passionate purple, but beyond that, there really isn't a better choice of snowshoes for women. Make your outdoor experience the best it can be with a pair of Crescent Moons. What makes each of Crescent Moon's Gold series of shoes unique and worth considering is the SPL adjustable binding, recognized in Backpacker's Winter Gear Guide (09/10) as the best binding on the market. The single-pull-loop (SPL) is designed to capture your foot with equal tension in all directions, not just top down like all other bindings, but the anatomically shaped SPL harness also form-fits around, and supports, your foot from side to side and most uniquely, from front to back. Because of this unique capture system, the binding translates the motion of your foot in every direction and makes the snowshoes by Crescent Moon highly responsive. With each step you take you will notice the tail of the shoe follows your heel, immediately lifting off the ground .this is the opposite of the motion, and feel, of a free-rotation system found on other brands, commonly known as tail draggers".
