I’ve come back around to this lid. I find it grants more security than a climbing helmet, and removes the hesitation I have bringing my heavier smith mips. It has made bringing a real ski helmet along an easy decision. More a 4 star compromise of features per the above reviews but now a valued piece of kit I’m glad I held onto and use more. I run hot and have never used the heavier harness.
This is a useful little kit. I’m not so clear on how the value is, but with the bits, you can adjust both Plooom and many other binders. As per my review of the Plum Guide, lock tote is good to have to address slippage in the adjustable plate. The wax is usable, but goes fast. The scraper is fine, if small. The white grease is the most useful item other than the tool, and the pouch is about right, although I wouldn’t tour with all the items. Like many a first aid kit you could assemble a better kit for you ...
Will any other ski crampons work on these to facilitate narrower waists? Thanks
This follows years a couple of years of use, after years of using the Dynafit TLT 5s and 6CRs. While not quite as nimble on the up, they are solid on the down. I can't evaluate the flex ratings due to limited understanding / experience, but if they are 125 they seem like a relatively soft boot compared to old Lange bang black 130s. Possibly it's the greater amount of play. I'm wearing these in 29.5 but wear Dynafits in 29. But I think not: they feel like they fit well, and I'm not sure I've even baked them ...
This is a very warm, technical skimo jacket, more than a touring jacket. Unlike the Orthovox Piz it's got a nice, dense nap, and provides more heat capture with it's grid pattern. That plus no pit zips and I would not want this above 20-25 F if actively moving. With a light t-shirt or mesh underwear it could cover a very wide temperature range. It is well made, but not overwhelmingly so, and requires some wind layer if it blows.
