I'm on year 4 of the Alp Tracks 100 in a 170, and really like them. Wondering if I should just replace with the same ski? or try out the Backland 100, Voile hyper V6, Dynastar M-tour. Thoughts on the comparisons? I'm 5'10" 160lbs without gear and not a hard charger. Using either F1 LT's or Fischer Carbon Travers boot
Any chance you will get a 28/28.5 in this year? I would like to replace my Hoji liner
These are always in my pack, along with puffy shorts, and always on the boots if it's below 0F. Very light and compact. Amazingly warm for the weight. Some snow can get stuffed in, but the are so easy to take on and off, it's easy to remove. I will often pull them out to sit on them if needed. I consider them essential safety gear to have in case of injury or need to sit/stand around.
I wear this touring, not racing, but I love the internal pockets as they are big enough for fat skins, and I can even stuff gloves and mitts in there. I also love the external pockets for snacks, and other things. It's my main baselayer, with wool (thick/thin, short/long sleeve underneath). I like to always keep my beacon protected underneath a layer. I don't use the beacon pocket, maybe fine for a race. It does gets a bit stinky fast (comparied to the Millet Pierra Menta), I guess a reason to buy 2:)....
Super warm for the weight. I am a 5'10' and a 32 typically in US pants. The medium fits well over tights/under my hard shells, but too little tight over my soft shell pants. I go with the large if I was to were them over my soft shell pants. It's my go to addition in super cold temps (0F and below) I also wish they had a fly zipper like the ones.
