Crescent Moon Magnesium 9 Snowshoe

Crescent Moon's new Magnesium 9 snowshoes come in at just under 3 pounds for the pair, yet feature a ratcheting heel strap, "one-pull" front binding and a set of aggressive aluminum crampons under both forefoot and heel.

With dimensions of 9"x27" and capable of supporting 195 lbs, the Magnesium 9s should be a good match for varied terrain and most snow types Bob should encounter other than deep powder.

As a bonus, they're made primarily from recycled and recyclable components, and the decking is made of a material that contains no PVCs, yet is stronger by weight than the decking material it replaced.

Is Backpacking Light going to carry these? Will you be testing them in the field soon? These look perfect for my tired broken body to put on, use, and/or carry and no PVCs.

I am looking for something light with easy to put on bindings and high quality if anybody has suggestions. Love my MSR's but not the bindings.
