These are my go 2 for any new boot or shoe! Classic and they just work for my feet. My feet, knees, and back appreciate the investment every time.

When things get STEEP and FIRM, these are the technical tools you'll be wishing were in your hands. I believe they are one of the lighter technical tool offerings - they climb steep snow and even technical ice extremely well. I have left my Petzl Nomics at home several ice climbing trips b/c the North Machines swing effortlessly and with surgical precision. I bought a pair without the hammer/adze and then purchased an extra pick with the hammer attached. It's a quick n' easy swap if I think pounding in pito...

This tool blows my mind! So dang light, yet very capable. One of my main touring partners likes to venture into the unknown which in the Wasatch can require the need to hammer in pitons for decent.

The waist belt pocket holds plenty of snacks and the dedicated tools pocket keeps things organized and quick to access in case of an emergency. The top closure system is fast and easy too. My only complaint is that I would rather see the pack desig...
I put 50+ days on the Helio Poles touring in the 2017/18 season and they are still going strong. These poles are crazy light. Like blow away in the wind light. Be careful. They are also very strong and proving equally durable. I try to refrain from bashing tree branches on the skinner and whacking snow off my boots - otherwise I use and abuse these poles and would be surprised if I didn't get many more seasons of use to come. By far these are THE BEST poles I have ever used for touring.
