It's pretty hard to argue a case for any optics company on the market today having better quality than Oakley. Smith is definitely a close second, but if you do a little research into what makes Oakley's frames and lenses (which you should do) you'll find that they are truly a cut above the rest. Now, for the Airbrake specifically. This is definitely Oakley's answer to the Smith I/O, which is very possibly the best and most advanced goggle ever made... until now. One part Oakley's killer optics and one part a far superior lens interchange system makes the Airbrake the king of the block. Unless you simply can't afford them, it's logically the only choice. Do it, your eyes will thank you. As for a lens recommendation, the dark gray and hi-yellow arsenal covers you for pretty much every situation.

This is definitely the best thing since sliced bread! i now have probably 10 to 12 days in this thing, still haven't washed it, and it still doesn't smell. 'Nough said. Oh yeah, it's crazy warm too. a full day skiing 8-14 degree temps in just the 1z, a t shirt, and shell jacket and pants and there were only a couple moments on a couple lift rides where i kind of wished i had another layer on but definitely didn't have to. seriously, this thing is epic! yeah, no number two flap, but unless you're truly out in the backcountry where you can't find a restroom, i haven't found it to be much of a big deal. i'm 5'10" 150# and the small fits really well. sorry to anyone shorter than 5'8" though, i doubt this will work for you.

so, i'm pretty sure i'm going to get some MFD's and i have a bit of a side question. i know i'm going to be getting new boots in the relatively near future. so my question is, if i go ahead and mount up my P18's to the MFD setup with my current boots is it easy to remount to a slightly smaller/larger boot sole lenght?

Just got these and put them to the test on the job (snowmaking at Snowbird) today. It was a chilly one, temps in the teens, and even when ripping around on a snowmobile my hands only got a tiny bit chilly. But, when just skiing or hiking around my hands were toasty warm. Definitely not all that waterproof, but i'm sure with a little Nikwax or something similar they'll be great. Don't think i'd make them my everyday ski glove (for that i use the greatest glove of all time, the Hestra Vertical Cut Freeride)but as a work/backup/touring pair they are great. 4 stars because i don't really like the wrist closure, but that's pretty standard for any work style glove. Overall, highly recommended, especially for the price!!

UPDATE: Staying at 4 stars, but for different reasons. 4 stars and not 5, because they just aren't quite warm enough for the really cold days, but the 4 stars are well earned by the fit, feel, and quality. I love the dexterity, the build quality and the fact that they really are warm enough for MOST days, just not all. and with a little bit of Nikwax's Creme Waterproofing Wax for Leather, they are plenty waterproof. So, if this is your price range for gloves or you're looking for a backup/work pair you'll be more than satisfied.

Perfect low cut sock. when it comes to socks my main criteria are 1.)when i pull it on it better form right where it's supposed to without any adjustment and just feel right, and 2.) it better last longer than the jug of milk i have sitting in my fridge. so far these meet the first stipulation, but since it's day one, i'll let you know when i have to turn a pair into dish rags.

Hands down the best glove i've ever skied in. burlier than pretty much anything out there and warm enough for the coldest days (not too hot on the warmer ones, but not a spring glove). when you send it and the snow's a little firmer than you though it'd be your knuckles will thank you for the extra padding when you punch ice. little pricy, and high maintenance, but WELL worth it. look no further. but if you do, only look to Hestra.

i've been skiing in the Holt, with and without the audio option, for 3 seasons now. if you're into skiing with music it's definitely worth paying for the audio shot. i haven't skied in the Maze helmet from smith, i have tried it on, but i still think i'm going to go with another Holt when i buy a new helmet. it's just simple, steezy, and protective. not to mention warm. maybe check out the Maze if you're worried about the weight, but you CAN NOT go wrong with this helmet. way better than other Giro's i've owned.

try it!!!! my intro to the EP pro was only because i ripped a binding out of the fat skis that i had at the time. living in utah, i was pretty bummed to have my fat skis out of commission, but i was lucky enough to have one of my buddies say, hey u can use my EP's until you get something new. i was definitely stoked to have something fat to ski on, but as i'm a pretty hard charging big mountain skier i immediately said, 'well at least it's something, but i just know i'm going to hate these things. WRONG! i ended up buying them off of him. i ski Snowbird, UT and anything from straight lining the cirque to making pow turns in mineral basin to sending it on north baldy. this ski kills it (in the deep) and holds it's own very well in the chop and can get around on hard pack. my disclaimer: i ski the '07- '08 model. which from what i read (i haven't skied any of the newer models) is a fair bit softer, which only means that the newer models are even more versatile. so check it out, Eric Pollard kind of knows what he's talkin' about.
