The Crescent Moon Silver 10 Backcountry snowshoes are wider and longer to provide more flotation for soft snow conditions or carrying a backpack. Like all Crescent Moon snowshoes, they feature a pronounced teardrop shape for easier walking (so you are less likely to step on one snowshoe with the other). Features I especially like are their three crampon system (which adds a toe crampon for climbing), and single pull loop tightening system on the bindings. As for weight, 4 pounds per pair isn’t bad for 10-inch by 32-inch snowshoes, but a half pound lighter would be better.
