These don’t get a ton of use, but when they do, they’re awesome. Great lightweight crampon that works on approach shows / trail runners / hikers for when you don’t know what conditions you’re going to encounter where. Wouldn’t really recommend on ski boots unless in a pinch, so so many auto crampons works well on boots. Antiball plates are great too for when the snow gets sloppy.
(My wife’s skis, but I use them sometimes, which should tell you how good these are:)) We love these Blizzards in a 164 (perfect for 130 lbs). Stiff, but the new profile is so much easier to handle than the old ones. These instill a lot of confidence skiing in spring conditions and mixed Cascades and transitional snow packs. Blizzard also has bomber construction, so not scared to strap these to the sled and go for a long, bumpy ride either. The graphics are a bit aggressive and hard to match, but also repr...
I love these pants for their warmth and light weight, and wide-range zippers. No hate to the puffy-shorts-wearing folks, but these look pretty normal too for grabbing a latte or beer after a skin. Plus we’ve gotten them through the Grand Traverse gear check, which is huge because they are so light compared to the old standards.
Still one of my favorite socks: light, breathable, and durable. Toes aren’t as fitted as some, but not a major issue. Plus these are effectively lifetime socks if you remember to use the guarantee … but even if not, hundred days is not unreasonable.
I love it, when it’s charged… this is a great headlamp for urban running and quick adventures, but the 2 hour on high capacity is a little frustrating as it forces a recharge nearly daily. The swivel is also a little loose especially when skiing crud, so hopefully new versions add perhaps adjustability there or at least some more resistance.
