I have had these pants for 3 seasons now.

They are unstopable!!!! The cuffs have the regular small cuts in them; which I expect from a daily ski pant. Otherwise they have held up amazingly well. You can't tell that they have so many days on them!

Great fit, and excellent weather proofing. I would 100% recommend you buy these!!!!

I picked up the 187cm Bonafide late in the season this year as a more frontside ski. I was unimpressed with my DPS99 pures and thought I would try these.

I was extremely impressed with the Blizzard product. Construction quality is top notch. On hill these really slay the frontside groomers either soft or re-frozen and ice. I haven't had them on any bulletproof. They lock in a carve very well and you can make them have any turn shape you want from short slaloms to big superG turns. With the tip/tail rocker you can even throw some nice slashes and slarves. With the sheets of metal in these things they absolutely destroy crud like a missle. Super solid landing platform and 10-15' drops feel effortless on landing. I haven't skied these in anything over 1-2" as I usually grab something fatter, but they have proven to work well in light snow.

Very impressed!!

Really happy with the Norrona Jackets. I got this one in black/orange zip. It is an awesome looking jacket and I have had many compliments on it.

This is a very light weight jacket and packs away easily. It is more durable than I thought it would be. When I first got it, because it felt so light I was worried. I ended up getting one small rip in the sleeve from a branch, but I have been through lots of trees and only the one. My TNF jacket FreeThinker II is probably more durable though.

The jacket breathes well and I never get any moisture on the inside.

6'2" and 185 lbs. The L is a slim fit, I never got a chance to try on the XL but I think I would've been equally happy with that too.

Well I have spent almost 50 days in these boots.

They have a great fit, but I have been finding more issues with them the last few weeks.

They have a very low cuff in the front. Compared to a alpine boot which is higher in the front, the titan has a low cuff on the tibia and I found I wasn't getting nearly as much cuff pressure when skiing . Not only that but I found that I felt like I was going to go OVER the top of the cuff.

The other issue I have found is that the boot leaks in the toe. Every single time I take the boot out, my liners get soaked in the toe and my feet freeze.

The fit is amazing and the boots are nice and light, but I think I am going to be moving on from this boot because of the other issues I have had.

I found at 6'2" and 195lbs + gear the 186 was pretty good in tight areas like trees, however I found that I wanted more when opening up in bigger areas. Since I already have a tree ski I opted to size up to the 196. Don't be fearful of this ski - it skis effortlessly

Great little camera.

I picked the contour because I really like the form factor and didn't want a little toaster on my head while skiing. The contour has held up great so far and I have had major issues.

The only little problems I have had is you have be careful with the rear-door. I found on more than 1 occasion with gloves and what not I managed to flip the back door off and it was coated in snow after. No water issues afterwards though.

Great picture quality and lots of options for frame rates and resolution. I am still playing with mine to find out exactly what I want it at.

I do find compared to my friends GoPro's that they have a larger FOV. I wish the FOV was a little bigger on the contour.

I really like this helmet. Fit is very nice. Relatively light. Lots of vents and can be controlled on either side of the head. They are adjustable between full-open, to partial and closed. I find the helmet very warm and I never wear anything under it. Only adjust the vents as needed. I do take it off for B/C hikes as I find i get too warm then.

I like the look of this helmet with the brim as you look a little more "athletic" than the standard dome-heads.

The only issue with this helmet is the brim. It isn't super solid. If you take a huge wipe-out you could be brim-less.
