Adam's Bio

Started skiing as a kid, and finally got bored with the on-resort skiing. My latest backcountry setup is 333skis, dynafit, garmont megarides. I love it.

I've always like unique wallets (as opposed to the standard brown or black leather), and this one is definitely my favorite.

The credit card holders are angled against each other (you can see what I mean in the pics), which makes it really easy to get stuff into the right place.

Besides looking cool and being functional... it's also thin! which is always a plus in my book.

FYI, I was taking my Barryvox over to Europe and ran into a snag. There are 3 version of the Barryvox: North American, European, and Asian. The EU one can switch the W-Link frequency between EU and North America. The NA version though CANNOT switch to EU frequency: the only options are North America or Off. If possible, get the EU version.

Great back for BC Skiing

Use this for a hut-to-hut trip in the Swiss Alps. Plenty of space for all of my stuff. The waterproof hip pocket is perfect for a camera, some sunscreen, and some chapstick. The material for the backpack is pretty rigid so it won't stretch out much... fortunately, it's big enough you won't need too much stretch. The sidepockets are the only complaint I have: where the elastic top-band meets the mesh of the pocket, mine is all ripped out. I'll have to take it somewhere to get it sewn back together well.

The big deal with these: you need to step out of your binding to attach them... it can be difficult to put them on when you most need them.

There are ski crampons that you can attach to the bar on your bindings in the morning and they can rotate out of the way. Then when you need to use them, you can just use your pole to rotate the crampon into place. A lot easier if you're going to be using the crampons on and off.

These crampons are nice and lightweight. They got the job done well.
