I like these goggles a lot and when used with a lightweight touring helmet like the Scott Couloir I can tour without removing my helmet or goggles. My one issue with these is that it is a pain to get the lens secured back into the frame. Though they appear to be good, I can hear a fair amount of wind noise when moving fast. For better or worse, I don't ski very fast downhill when touring so the noise isn't bad, but definitely noticeable. Maybe I need to stop and really make sure the lens is seated but I'd...
I prefer wearing a helmet when touring uphill when possible, so I grabbed the Scott Couloir for its lightness and breathability. I haven't taken any falls with it but the coverage is good enough that it doesn't worry me. Finding a helmet that was certified for both skiing and climbing was also important to me for ski mountaineering trips. Additionally, it fits well with the Julbo Aerospace goggles (the ones where the lenses pop out) without making me look like a gaper. I'm able to use this duo for uphill t...
Weight: 190lbs Height: 6'4" Have been using the Zed bindings without brakes for the past two years somewhat regularly including many relatively tame inbounds runs and on boilerplate conditions in the PNW.

I also think the toe stop works pretty good for lining up the pins.
I’m undecided on what size I want for the Objective. I’m 6’3” 190 (200+ with glacier gear). Mainly I want to use the ski for Alaskan spring traverses and some light ski alpinism. I usually ride 187 but can’t decide between 178 or 171. Any thoughts? Looking at the BC if that makes a difference.
This sleeve (?) will not fit an iPhone 8 Plus IF you have a case on it. I have used it a ton without a case since that doesn’t bother me a ton. I’m planning on getting the mini iPhone next as I hate the plus size. The sleeve works okay, you really have to keep a hand warmer in it to make a huge difference but it does help a tiny amount without the warmer. Wish it was a little more waterproof for when I get sweaty. I’ve used it the past two winters and it has held up well.
