Get serious float and heavy grip without heavy weight.

The Crescent Moon Gold 17 Expedition Snowshoe can handle a heavy load in deep snow. Its large platform area and incredibly light weight (lowest on the market for shoes this size) deliver outstanding float, and Crescent Moon added extra stainless steel traversing claws for when the going gets sketchy during your latest backcountry adventure.

  • 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 crampon 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
  • Will accommodate a person plus gear up to 300 pounds
  • Made in Boulder, CO with as many recycled materials as possible in a wind-powered facility

4 Winters and still going!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Ive had these snowshoes for 4 years now and they are still in good shape.
The bindings fit and are fast to attach. Good flotation for someone my size (6'8 tall and 280 lbs).

Crescent Moon 17 Gold Expedition

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first ever snowshoe and I am really happy with how easy it is to setup the bindings and how secure it feels on my boots. Once on the crampons bite in very well for a nice slide free step. Im working in Yellowstone National Park all winter and will put these snowshoes through there paces!

Im also impressed with's fast shipping.

crescent moon 17 gold expedition

    I will give this snowshoe a 5 star rating. I am impressed with the binding and overall quality of this product. It is also worth mentioning that they are made in the United States and they have a life time warranty. I like the way they track in the snow and I can slip them off or on very easily with this binding. I own several pairs of winter boots and they quickly adjust to any boot I happen to be wearing at the time. I have always used wooden snowshoes but I have to say that these are more comfortable and they hold me up in deep snow as well as my 10x56 inch shoes.
