I picked up an older (2013 vintage) pair of these in a 171 with bindings and skins recently for a song, thinking they would be a casual race ski / spring mountaineering ski. So far I have maybe 8k' on them, and I'm super impressed. Despite being rather short for me - my usual touring skis are 177 and 179 - they ski surprisingly well in soft, 3d snow. I was taken aback by how well they handle settled or fresher pow (no more than 6" so far, but I have other skis for skiing deeper snow). They're light, easy to...
Hi, do the 14mm heel plates share the same hole pattern with the old red Dynafit Speed Superlite demos? (the adjustable track heel pieces). If so, is it possible to reuse the same holes, maybe with QK inserts or something, that had originally been mounted for SSL1.0 Demos?
If this matches the Dynafit Radical (1.0?) pattern, do these toes differ from the SCTT/GT toe holes? Will you be stocking the toes separately?
I love this pack, it has quietly taken over my every-day BC back slot. I have a Mammut alugator light shovel and a 240cm Arva compact probe, both of which fit just fine. I usually also toss in a down puffy, backup gloves/mitts/hat (in the AMAZINGLY useful crampon pocket) and some extra water beyond what's on the chest. The ski carry system works great, the soft water bottles on the chest + pockets for snacks and stuff are great, and the crampon pocket is really spectacular (though I haven't been keeping cr...
I got these because my CAMP G-Comp Warms get wet sometimes and don't dry out... figured I'd try a different inner glove w/a removable outer. Using the Arcteryx Venta (which is awesome) w/these in the pack. Generally my hands are cold a lot. These are very small, they pack super light, and are surprisingly warm. They aren't so warm that they'll warm my hands back up if I've let them get very cold, but that's a temperature-management issue and no fault of the mitts. If I put em on before I get too cold, I wo...
