personally, of the two, i'd definitely go with the FKS. depending on HOW aggressive of a skier you are, you might want to consider the FKS 180 though. the 180 has a higher din range and it has a burlier metal toe peice as opposed to 140's partly plastic toe piece. and you'll need the XXL. it has a 115 mm brake.

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?

Wasn't stoked on this one. It's steezy for sure, but it really is a material that's only suited as a base layer. i wore it outside when i first got it and any bit of wind took away any insulating properties it had. if you had a wind proof layer over it i'm sure it would be sick, but then you wouldn't see the steeze factor and... well i guess i just don't quite get it. if you're worried about your base layer being steezy and hooded(?) this is a great bet. otherwise i wouldn't recommend it.

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.

yes they would. i'm not certain it is the most ideal fit, but most any goggle will fit with any smith helmet. i wear oakley crowbars with it. i've owned the holt for 3 seasons. i love it! i would imagine that with EG2's it would be the best fit if you wear your goggles under your helmet, but whether you wear your goggles over or under you helmet this is a great choice!

has anyone seen the "blaze team" color in person? is it orange or red? the picture here makes it look pretty red, but by the word 'blaze' in the name i'm lead to think it might actually be more orange...

Bought this as my first harness and i'm definitley loving it. Getting all of the start-up necessities in one convenient package is awesome. Mammut definitely knows what's good in the climbing world. My only complaint is that the chalk bag did not come with the strap pictured, it had a string with a slider on it, which doesn't make any sense, but no big deal, i just clip it to my harness with a small carabiner. I personally think this is a much better option than the Black Diamond Momentum AL package and is considerably cheaper than the Petzl Corax and Black Diamond Momentum SA packages. Definitely would recommend to a friend.

I just bought this hat, and unfortunately had to return it. it's a really good looking hat and felt like it was quality constructed... but, it's wicked small!!! even with the adjustable strap as big as it goes it barely fit on my head. granted, i have a pretty big dome, even then any adjustable trucker hat should fit just about all sizes. this one, doesn't. that said, if you have a medium to small to SUPER small head this would be a steezy option most definitely.

I've been skiing (yes skiing) in these pants for 3 years and will probably buy another pair. although, with a re-up on some water proofing i could definitely keep rocking them for another couple seasons if i wanted to. so good! with the liners they're warm enough for the coldest days out there even when i only wear boxers under them. And, well, with the liners out i used them yesterday (july 2nd) and they were just what the doctor ordered. oh yeah, and they look dope!
