My wife has used these in a 164 length in a variety of conditions this season. They are a great quiver of one ski. The skis float well in powder, they are manageable in breakable crust (as well as anything else), they are stable at speed and hold an edge well. They're a fairly light ski, they're easy to maneuver on the skin track and a manageable size for throwing on the pack. They also ski really well and are easy to control i.e. tight trees at the exit or big gs turns or wide open powder skiing. The ...

This is a well designed training and racing top that can also work as a general mountain/touring top. I'm short and stocky and the size medium fits snug on the chest and shoulders but the sleeves have some excess and the waist is a little long but it never creeps up farther than I like (Crazy Idea tops seem to fit better for my short size). I often wear this jacket with a short sleeve or tank top underneath and can keep it on all day for touring though I'll have to add additional layers while out for a fu...

Excellent Italian styled race top. I'm short and stocky and a size medium fits well, so no excess in the sleeves and the waist does creep up under the pack waist belt but doesn't hang down lower than desired, this wouldn't be an issue if paired with the pants (which I haven't done). The pockets are nice but are all on the smaller side, the water bottle pouch seems like it will only fit a smaller soft flask or smaller than typical water bottle, the inside zippered pocket I just recently discovered would po...

The goggles work great with the Ski Trab Attivo helmet. They aren't the best goggles I've ever owned but the convenience of fastening them to the helmet without zipties / duct tape is nice. They ride perfectly on top of the Trab helmet and easily slide down when headed downhill. I purchased the single lens mainly for eye protection from the elements at night and they actually work well in daylight, I'd likely just use sunglasses if it were a bluebird day. The goggles for the most part seem to stay fog f...

These are an excellent pair of poles which I've put through the ringer bushwhacking, on lengthy approaches and exits, and breakable crust etc. The pole grips are nice and soft and unlike many molded rubber pole grips they can slide easily between your pack and back and are easily maneuvered without getting caught on clothing or ski pack material and straps. The pole wrist straps are really light and thickly padded, they are easily removable with a quick release button on the top of the pole. The only dow...
