Thanks for recommending this gaiter over the Scarpa version. It worked well and does the job of keeping my Aliens from becoming buckets of water on long spring tours. I have size 26.0 boots and they fit well. I wear them with my Crazy Idea pants and the system works. I wasn't psyched on the price, but what are the alternatives? Also, I wish they had some color in them. Keeping track of small black pieces of nylon, in a world of other small black pieces of nylon is tricky, but I guess that's on me. Two thumb...
Realy solid lightweight pole! Thanks, guys, for recommending these. I've put about 25k vertical on them, including a 15 -mile day with about 8k over a few passes. I'm not super hard on gear, and rarely have stuff break (with the exception of some pos Swix carbon poles I got from bc.com), but I was reluctant to get these. However, with my preferred style of touring (lots of flats connecting peaks and ridgelines), low swing weight is of mega importance. Also, coming from a nordic race background, it's hard to...
Yes! I've been looking for pants like this for years. I will wear these 80-90% of my time on skis. Super versatile, super well fitting, lightweight, durable, breathable, and good looking. What more could I ask for? I'm 5'10", 135, normally wearing a 29x32 pant. I went with the small. They are quite snug, and the inseam is almost too short (about 30"), but once I have boots on, it's just right. I've been wearing Vaude tights that have a wind resistant front panel for colder temps. In spring I'm sure I'll wea...
This is an amazing all purpose layering piece. It's just the right weight for winter tours with a lightweight baselayer underneath. Fit is athletic; it's pretty snug. I'm 5'10", 135 lb. and the small is very form fitting. The hood gives very good coverage without being restrictive. And it zips up into the collar. The skin pockets are cut for race skins, but they also serve as vents. There is a zipper left arm pocket that would fit a smaller iPhone or gps. I choose this over the lighter weight model primaril...
