Hi, I’m looking at these and match pants and could use some help with sizing. I’m 5’11” and 166 lbs with a 42” chest and wear 32x32 jeans. Would I be a large jacket and small pant? I have Mercury pro pants in Medium and they fit well.... maybe slightly big in waist. Thanks!
Versatile pant with a non-skimo fit. I wear these for cold weather touring, resort laps and exploring around with my 3 year old on classic XC. They fit over boots well and are windproof. They breathe pretty well but I feel the side vents don't do much. I also wish the pockets were a bit more ergonomic. The top waist pockets are a little awkward and the mid thigh pocket is a bit small to easily fit my phone. Not deal killers but my reason for knocking them down a star.
I've used these about a dozen times on a 97mm waisted ski in everything from frozen coral reef, resort corduroy, hero snow, variable wind slab and good ole fashion powder and I really like the performance and fit of these boots. I have a pretty narrow/low volume foot and they seem to fit me pretty well. I do think there some other boots with this type of performance at a lesser weight but the price on these boots is typically much better because they always seem to be on sale. If you have a foot like mi...
New addition to the glove quiver but very happy with their performance and awesomeness. These are perfect for me so far in temps down to 20 degrees and I could see them working in the upper teens just fine. Complex little gloves but makes life much simpler. They have great grip and feel. I ordered an XL but probably could have gone with a XXL. Surprising as I'm usually a L or XL so you may want to size up.
I purchased the classic 6.4mm shims with extensions to reduce the delta with Dynafit Vertical ST bindings and 28mm pozi screws as recommended. Unfortunately the 28mm Pozi screw head is too large to fit within the 5th screw (top screw) toe lever. 23.5mm screw fits but left me with not enough threads to feel it would be a secure mount. The shims themselves match nicely and do reduce the delta to what I was looking at. Although with the 28mm screws, shims and extensions the added weight would be about 1...
