Does anyone think that the 188 cm length is too chort for these? I had some S7's that were 188's and I thought that they were way too short. Should I go for these or something bigger like the Ben Chetler at 192?

Adequate for the job. The stars say it all. I skied these boots all last year and they did the job, pretty well. I compete in big mountain skiing so I found the flex on these (I used the 110 flex) to be sufficient, but not great. I would recommend this boot to woman and people who are heading up to the hill to have some fun on the snow.

I just got my Float 18 shipped to me the other day. I heavily researched the different airbag options and found that BCA made the most competitively prices airbags out there. One thing that makes their airbags unique is the fact that you can go to several scuba shops found around North America who will refill your cartridge after it has been fired off.

Upon receiving my Float I instantly checked how my pow skis would fit on the ski carrying system, which has been refined to hide the straps instead of constantly having them flop around. My skis fit great, and I used the Rossignol S7 from last year with the FKS bindings. The skis fit like a charm, and were taught against the back of the pack. Another thing that I was wondering about in my research was whether or not the 18 was big enough for my shovel and probe along with other things that I would be carrying around like an extra layer. The shovel handle and probe go in through the top pocket whereas your shovel blade and additional layers go in through the back pocket. Lunch, layers, and a water bottle and the pack is pretty full, but still has space for a little more. Nonetheless, the pack has not disappointed thus far and I am sure that it will be awesome this winter. Sometime in January I will try and post another review about how it works on the hill. Any questions, feel free to post to this review and i'll do my best to answer them.

On the BCA website it says that the best torso lengths are 17-22 inches for all the packs, at the ski shop I tried all the bags on and found that the 30 and 36 fit a slightly larger torso length whereas the 18 would fit a slightly smaller one, which makes sense as the Float 18 is an overall smaller bag. Hope this answered your question!

Patagonia has been making bomb proof gear since they started. It is one of the few companies that can actually stand up to what they make, and this jacket is just another one of those jackets that will last for ten years. If you like the new and latest trends in colors and fashion, this jacket is not for you, but if you like stuff that can withstand anything and love to be cozy all day long this is your jacket. What is unique about this jacket is there is a down sweater pretty much sewn into the shell, making it one of the best jackets I have ever owned. I hope to use this jacket for the next ten years, but I would advise to get a shell accompanying this jacket, simply because its too damn hot! So I use my shell Primo for warmer days and trekking, where I use my Primo Down for chilly resort days, or just chilly days period. Simply put, this is the best jacket ever invented.
