The Crescent Moon Women's Gold 15 Backcountry Snowshoe has a teardrop shape to create an easy, natural stride over snow and ice--and all with a size and shape that won't make a woman alter her walk. The snowshoe's light weight and powder-friendly size means you can venture wherever you like for miles and miles without feeling weighed down.


The Crescent Moon Gold 15 Backcountry Snowshoes for Women are the first off-trail snowshoe specifically design for women up to 200lbs (including your gear) and comes highly recommended for that purpose. New for this season is a re-designed frame shape featuring greater surface area and a lower nose in the front resulting in a shoe that feels and performs better in deep snow and accommodates a womans more narrow stride. The exaggerated tear drop shaped frame is a perfect match with the SPL (single-pull-loop) binding, which makes them remarkably easy to walk and hike in while also providing great floatation. The combination of form and function in the Gold 15 maks it easier to haul your stuff, like all that wine and cheese, so you'll have more time to enjoy what you brought in. The Gold 15s may be the most compatible backpacking partner you'll ever have. 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 groundthis is the opposite of the motion, and feel, of a free-rotation system found on other brands, commonly known as tail draggers".
