You’re right Matthew, I’m pretty sure @JBO meant narrower, not wider. I’m a big fan of straight(er) cut skins too, though I don’t go that narrow anymore. 10-15mm narrower than the tail width is usually how I buy my skins. They get an hourglass cut only under the middle ~1/3 of the length and they’re straight the rest of the way
90-ish waisted skis with a light build and freeride personality? The Volkl BMT 94 was on it in 2014-2018. Ahead of its time? *FULL* rocker, very damp construction, and a sidecut radius in the mid-20's. But a slim 94mm waist and a sub 1500gm weight.
Used this jacket about a dozen times. It has a minimal design, without using flimsy/minimal materials. I have a similar weight puffy from Enlightened Equipment that is made from gossamer fabrics that will never stand up to abrasion like this Dynafit jacket will. No extra material is wasted on the back and waist, where your pack and belt will be. No hood means it layers well under a shell. Napolean style make sense when wearing a pack belt, and are easier to access when this jacket is layered under a shell.
Thanks jbo. I just re-read my review and realize the words are more negative than I feel. 4 Stars is the important thing. Race skins are awesome, and they're going to remain in my quiver. It's been a season of learning what their limits are.
