Hey Charles! Oh dang, no kidding? I mean that's probably the best case scenario considering the situation, but it's still super annoying that it even came to that. If I find a clean crampon solution that goes above and beyond just the standard semi-auto route I'll make it a public announcement of sorts and then send you an email.

Hey Doug! Oh man, you could probably go either way at this point, but I'd probably go with the XL. They're fairly stretchy, but I think the Large might be a bit too short for you.
Hey Ron! Okay, here are the specs of that ski: 141-112-128.
