I have a number is soft shell type jackets and this is the favorite, excepting situations where I’d need a wind stopper. The fit is spot on, the venting is excellent. While Jonathan’s comment on the arm pocket is fair I wouldn’t want a large pocket there, since it mostly for a balm or RF pass. An inside pocket would help the phone issues. I think I’d prefer the skin pockets to be Napoleon style. They are situated far back for stuffing skins, but are much larger in opening which is great, vs a Crazy Idea rac...

Not much to add except to confirm this is the best float to weight ski I use. Compares well on hard pack as well. Skied US east, west, Europe and it is likely as big in the 184 as I need. It's less chattery than Movement Vertex, has a useful rocker to beat that skis initiation in soft snow, and holds better on hard than Trab Stelvio. Works well with TLT5&6, but prefers the stiffer TLT6. No complaints and would use on all but the tightest couloirs.

He skied these in all kinds of snow in 2017 and to good effect. Still heavy, but good in all conditions, and safe: released rarely, but when needed. Skins are fine too.

Update after a season in the East on piste, and Wasatch and Cham on and off. Still very good. Got a chip on the edge but skis this light with a lower profile sidewall do have that potential, and easily mended with Jason's good advice.

I feel a home grown cut in a tip is a potential vulnerability, at least the way ...

Updated. I've had plate movement twice, likely due to the 2 screw adjustment plate. Brian at skimolife is a better source of details. https://www.instagram.com/brian.skimolife. Admittedly it slipped after late season skiing on Crouches berard but I didn't do as much stream and turf skiing as the locals who passed me. Even after tightening that morning they slipped in shrubbery terrain. Will likely locktite a bit next year. Also a great reason to bring a posi multi tool and bits along.
