I hate accessories, watches or necklaces or sunglasses, hate 'em. I also never seem to be able to find sunglasses that i look good in because I have a big head and big face.
But these sunglasses have converted me. after a minute on my face, i forget they are there. The vision is crystal clear, they block the sun from all angles, and they look damn good.
Close. Hamilton College. So I shouldn't waste my time with something as light as the LT? What if I do plan on a bit of hiking (if I make it out west this season)? I do like to explore...
I just got this in the mail today. I've been wearing it around the house because it is so freaking comfortable. its the softest thing i own, its like wrapping myself in a puppy.
I started to clean my room while wearing it, doing a little bit of physical activity, and i had to take it off. i was starting to over heat. it traps heat SO well, its amazing. perfect for layering. it also acts as a weightless cushion between me and my hard, crinkly, goretex jacket.
its pretty amazing.
well isn't that just great for mr. happy gil-oh-my-god!
yep! its the exact same jacket with a new logo. The Welder Hi is the warmer one with some more insulation. The Lo is exactly the same
I've heard from many people that the brim gets in the way of putting your goggles up. How true is this? can this problem be avoided? i like the brim look but its a pain if i can't put my goggles up.
also, how would these fit with dragon maces?
if you have to ask what kinda jacket it is, you can't have one ;)
This is one of the best softshells i have ever used. Under the sink test, it sheds water with no problem, I don't feel a think on a windy day, and the cut is pretty sick. I'm 5'9 170 and i got a large, and it fits perfect with a sweatshirt underneath. It extremely comfortable, the inside is so soft and the outside moves really well. it also has kept be very dry as it breaths so well.
The reason it only gets 4 stars is because of the looks (It is very important, admit it). As you might have read, the Tahoe color i received what not what i expected. The one in the picture would have been SOOO awesome, but instead i got a teal (much like this http://www.candlechem.com/images/D152teal.gif) instead of the awesome blue shown in the picture. I think the teal will be bearable, there are no Carbon's in large left anyway. The other thing is the welded seams. They do not let in any water. But as for looks, the seams do pop out and I'm pretty sure there are more seams on this jacket than any other jacket I've looked at.
Thats a nice size but the 171s would work to you can always grow into them. Some people ride skis longer, you could easily ride high 160's, low 170's. im 5'8 and im on 172's and people my size sometimes go even bigger
A lot of times Marmot will make items specifically for different retailers, sometimes one of the items from their line altered slightly to the retailer's specifications. As a result, the retailer is the only one with both the jacket and any information on the jacket...As for the weigh, it is extremely light. The material is super light and the whole jacket seems to be lighter then most of my sweatshirts.
I received the jacket today and was very impressed. The twilight color is very nice, and the jacket feels lighter than most of my sweatshirts. Its super warm and comfy as well. I put it through my homemade tests, all the water beaded right off when i put it under a sink and sat infront of a fan and didnt feel a thing.
The reason is only got a 4/5 is because of the pit-zips and the length. The pit-zips do rub a little bit but even a short sleeve shirt with slightly longer sleeves will easily stop the rubbing. The length is a big short. I'm 5'9 175, and the jacket is only at my waist, higher than most of my others.
but all around, this is a great softshell and i can't wait to ski in it
To mw304001693322 or anyone else who has this jacket.Can you explain more about the pit zips and what was wrong (pictures possibly)? also, what else did you like or dislike?to jbm_132341269, the review says that it does have pit zips and that he was having trouble with them.but as for the windstopper marmot you have (i think they are a little different), what do you think about it?
Does the material feel really stiff like a rain jacket?
Coming off of 12 years of being more of a racer and never touching the park, this was a great ski to pick up. It's a great ski for groomers, and for a beginner in the park, i had a ton of fun on them. they're really durable and are stiffer then most, but it keeps you really stable at high speeds. not the best in powder since i mounted mine only 1cm back from center, but i could make due. I've had a ton of fun on these skis so far. Only complaint is that the top sheet is already chipping and what not and that was before they even touched the park
The msp in my opinion is the BEST ski for hard snow conditions you can buy for in a twintip. you could get by with 171's--but i would go 181 for 2reasons they are fatter so they will give you better powder performance also as you get better you will want a longer ski. they are pretty stiff but you sould still be able to handle the 181'sAdd: i really think you dont need skis this fat for skiing in the north east. a good pow day is so rare that you'll get better performance on hardpack/ice with something a little smaller that can handle pow, these would be better out west i think. they would work well when the conditions are right, but the conditions are hardly even right
No.all beacons transmit and receive the same signal, otherwise it would really restrict who could search for you and who you could search for, which would be stupid
Hey, I was looking for a good bag that would work for school and skiing. I mostly ski in the north east, so im not doing a ton of BC skiing, i probably will never carry a shovel or any of that with me. But i would like something that can carry my skis on occasion and my books for school. I have a backpack for school that's about 2000cu in. and when i wear it, it feels like it would just be to big to ski with, and the chute is bigger. so i was looking at the Dakine Pro 2 pack for skiing but i like the size of the chute for school. Does anyone have any experience with either backpack? any info would be great. Basically i need to know if this bag would be to big to ski with if im not a huge BC skierMichael, i look at all the dakine bags and am set one these two. The heli pro is much to small for all my school stuff
3 gloves in one, its the best. on the cool days, the liner inside will keep me more than warm enough. On a colder day, the glove without the liner will keep you very warm and dry, and when its getting in the single digits and below, the glove and liner keep your hands warm and sweat free. I have not had a problem with cold hands since the day i got them. they also keep the water out very well and dry quickly if any snow gets in.
my only complaint is that they are a tiny bit big. the liner fits perfect, but with the glove, the fingers are a little long. but i can easily live with it
The dakine website gives you some more pictures of the inside (http://dakine.com/ski/packs/snow/tactic/). i dont have the backpack but i have been looking into getting it and it seems to have compartments made for BC gear, but according to some reviews, not the biggest compartments. http://www.wildsnow.com/977/guest-review-dakine-tactic-backpack/
