I have had this jacket for 3 years now, and it has gotten a whole lot of use! On the slopes its warm, but never stuff, has great movement, and looks great! Around town I can wear it on its own in the fall/ spring, or with a patagonia R2 or R3 for the cold, or downright frozen days. With the R3 under I was comfortable in -40 alaska weather while doing some touring.

For sizing I'm 170, 5'4" and the M is loose but not baggy, with more than long enough sleeves/body to fit parka style.

This jacket has held up great, looks great, and I love it!

I demo'd these fine beasts at the Canyons Resort in Park City, UT, and was to say the least pretty darn impressed! I love a ski that really lets me through everything I have into it, and these sure do fit that bill. If your typical day on the white stuff included touring up, and high speed, technical assaults down, these are your planks. I would caution any moderate skiers to look at some of the other fine skis in Black Diamonds line, as these are very stiff, unforgiving, and full on power machines. Bottom line: The Verdicts in, ski them as hard as you can.

These ski's are some of the best I have tried out this year. With a former racing background, I was, at first sight, unsure of them, being a little softer then I generally ski, but from the first run I was impressed. I skied this on several different conditions and terrain types, and nothing seemed to phase them. I found them to be quick responding, aggressively gripping, and incredibly well designed. The only downside of these ski's that I thought stood out was their overly heavy weight, so if your a lightweight fanatic, go look at some touring skis. If you want something that's up for anything, will keep a smile on your face, and not set you back $1300, hit these bad boys up!

Bottom line: Well done Blizzard!
