Thanks, follow up question: how does the height of these liners compare to the power lt version? Wondering if they are much taller? Thanks.

I am using both the raider toe shims and brake seat covers on the raider 12. I love to fiddle with my gear to get exactly what I want and its awesome that ATK provides all of these parts to help me do so. I have used b&d shims in the past but the ATK ones are milled exactly for this toe, giving a much cleaner look. The brake seat covers work well for filling the hole created by yanking the brakes out, not much else to say there. keep fiddling.
The Pros: lightweight, good side coverage, bungle in the back big enough for goggle straps, plenty of adjustibilty for various hat/buff combos. The foam is much more durable than the previous vapor model I was using. The Cons: wish it had some sort of ski rating like the petzl meteor. looks a little mushroomey when worn. adjustments are challenging with thick gloves on. Overall a good bucket for ski touring.

This skis lightweight and reasonable waist make it a great all around ski for day in day out tours. It provides confident edge hold in firm conditions and the rearward mount point help keep the tips afloat in powder. I am using the ...
