I'm 5'10" 155lbs and got these in the 173's and I got them for east coast skiing thinking I would mostly take them out when we got fresh snow. However, I just took them out on one of the iciest days I have seen in a over a year and they performed really well.
They...
Held an edge really well on ice and groomers
Super Stable at high speed
Busted through crud really well.

I plan to use these skis in all conditions, these skis are SICK!

These pots work great, the only reason I didnt give them 5 stars is because they are so expensive, sure they are light I mean they seem a little on the pricey side. Other than that though everything worked fine with them i was able to make pasta with them and use the strainer in the lid which was very convenient.

This stove is truely amazing, it boils water incredibly fast and is very light. Everybody seems to complain about how loud it is but I really dont see that as a problem. Sure, it may be louder than your average stove but it is really not that noticeable, nor is it difficult to talk over, as other reviews have suggested. I made pasta on it in no time and was pleasantly surprised with its very good fuel consumption.

This tent is soo awesome, it took me ten minutes at the most to set it up the first time I did it. It is very waterproof but also allows breathability. It is an exceptional value for the price. It is very light especially if you split the components into multiple peoples packs....The one thing I dont like is that it would be very uncomfortable to fit 4 people in it, however, I only plan to use it for 2-3 so thats fine for me. Marmot thought everything out when they designed this tent and it really is a well designed piece of gear!

Pros:
-Compression straps make it really thin.
-The hydration sleeve is nice to have
-aluminum frame makes for a nice fit to your back
-The zipper opens really big so you can easily acces things in the bottom of the bag
-Back pannel zipper is awesome
Cons:
-My roommate has this bag and he says the straps loosen through out the day and have to be retightened
-Hydration pocket is pretty small and doent fit my stoaway 100 liter but its fin, i just hang it in the bag.
-If you have the avalung it doesnt compress down as much

I just got this bag and havent had a chance to use it. However, I have used my roommate's and it fits really nice and doesnt budge while you are skiing. It is a little to thick to have behind you on the lift but that is no big deal since you can keep the waist strap hooked and rotate it around so its on your lap. The bag is very high quality and i plan to use it for a bunch of summer and winter activities, not just skiing. I will amend my review once I have been using the bag for a while.
