Type III - Aggressive
So far I’ve been impressed and happy with this jacket. I was specifically looking for a breathable layer that had enough weather resistance to put on at the car and take off after returning to the car on speedy missions. I’m also particularly warm blooded so I was looking for something that could stay on during high output tours. I would say this almost meets that criteria. It works well for us warm blooded folks on days where temps are below high 20s or low 30s, when it still feels too hot and sweaty for m...
Overall really dig the headband for keeping the ears and head warm while giving plenty of room for heat release. I’ve found that sometimes the headband will work it’s way up or down which has either started covering my eyes up front on left my lil ears out in the cold to ice over. Also be aware, as should be expected, if you’re wearing a milimalist helmet your head may get chilly on cold days.
These cats are sweet! Like you read, so light that you forget they’re in your pack. When they’re needed, they go on easily and perform great. Since they’re aluminum I’d try to be pretty sparing on much direct contact with rock. Stoked to have a pair and will use them continuously for bigger ski mountaineering days as well as summer mountaineering escapades. Versatile and awesome crampons
Very fond of these pants! I, like a lot of people interested in these pants, like to move fast and run hot. I’ve used them on days in the alpine under full sun where raw temps popped into the 40s and also on days when it was snowing sideways and windchill values were low. They’ve done exceptionally well in both. Heat regulation is effective and I haven’t overheated in these. On extra cold days you could also run a baselayer under these without a problem. Simple, well made, good fit, great material. I highl...
The Attivo system is awesome! Tip rip is super easy, the skins hold in place, and the pow laps keep going all day long. I’ve been thoroughly impressed by the mohair mix (used for Stelvio 85’s)—pretty good glide and ample grip on the steeper sections of skin track. I’ve also been impressed by how well these repel water—I’ve had long days with multiple laps as well as soggy spring afternoons that I would have thought would saturate the skins, but I haven’t hardly noticed the skins retaining any moisture a...
