OVERALL: Outstanding! after using these for most of a season of training, racing and touring, I can confidently say these have been a GAME CHANGER for the way I layer for my hands. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for those that enjoy the breathability and dexterity of a thin liner style glove most of the time but occasionally need a quick boost in warm/wind protection (without having to dig through your pack for a bulky warm glove). IN USE: I utilize a thin liner style glove 95+% of the time on the uphill and used ...
ok, thanks for the insight.
The ultimate combination of weight, performance, features and price for a serious touring binding! Assuming you aren't dropping cliffs or using this binding inbounds, I find that it offers plenty of performance for fairly aggressive skiing on a relatively large ski (184cm 99mm underfoot dynafit denali).

I have NOT used them on any water ice or rock but that is not what they are intend...
Great skins! Have them for both my Mustagh Ata Superlight skis and my new Denali skis. The tip and tail connection is very simple but works very well. Ripping skins from the tip (as opposed to from the tail with most other manufacturers) makes it very easy to quickly rip skins with your skis on (race style). They are lighter and more packable than many other skins that various friends use. I find the mohair/nylon mix used to be a great balance between grip and glide. Only downside I have found is ...
