Seriously, I have fitted it to be that comfortable. Now I haven't done any super long routes, but I have spent hours hanging with no complaints really. I am yet to use it in the snow, but the adjustable leg loops have already been a god send. It's worth the price, young or old I highly suggest one.

p.s. Racking gear on this thing is as easy as it gets.

These draws are probably the best bang for your buck you can get out there. They are super light, affordable, easy to clip and rack. Some times the silver 'biner gets flipped around but it is no big deal if you are used to it and can properly avoid it. I use them for trad and sport and I have no complaints, I even get compliments from some old timers at how good they look!

I love placing a good nut in funky cracks. These are much more solid than the BD nuts it many situations, and apparently it is hard to place a bad one even when I would be terrified to take a fall on one, my second said it was bomber, and actually had to bust out the tool.

Any one who likes to use lots of chalk and use tick marks needs to invest in one of these sets! I see way to many marks on the rock that could be easily cleaned up, but that is where these come in handy. It is a great brush set and does the job when it comes to cleaning up after others.

It's nice and light, and small! I have never used any inflatable pads for some reason, I guess I was just brought up on closed cell foam. But I didn't think that closed cell could be this comfortable. It is a little on the thin side for taking out in the winter, and if you like bushwhacking it will take quite a beating.

I'm sure these would rip as an alpine ski, and I would love to give them a shot. But I actually took these out and learned how to tele on them. Honestly I had a blast, but I can't compare them to other skis as I have never tele'd before. But what I did notice is that these things seemed to be really stable after I got the hang of it. They definitely wanted to go much faster then I could, so if you have been tele skiing for a while and like to charge, I would say these are for you.

To start, I'm 6'2" and 180. So getting that out of the way, I think much smaller guys could rip these just as hard as I did. They were very light for how stiff they were and how well they skied. Unfortunately I was only able to ski them in icy crud, which they killed it in. I can only imagine how they react in the soft stuff. The stability of these at high speeds really allowed me to straight line even the sketchiest chutes with great confidence. I highly recommend these skis to any one looking for a high performance, stiff, charging, one ski quiver go anywhere big mountain ski.
