I am a Backpacking guide in Colorado. this past week I went on a 7 day 6 night trip with my fellow guides. This was the first time that I actually got to try out the bag in cold temps. each night was below 30 degrees. We were sleeping on snow each night. Overall I was not satisfied at all with this bag. The liner is not very water resistant at all. If you are looking at this bag you should know already that real goose down does not insulate when wet. And this bag with the pad that gets put in the bottom creates extremely cold air spots that are impossible to keep warm unless you put an 850 fill down jacket on your side. I am 6' 4" 230 lbs and I was still cold. I am very warm blooded and I froze every night. Unfortunately not satisfied at all.
You should be ok temp wise. It is rated at 15 degrees. But really it all depends on how warm your body runs. If you are a warmer person then this would keep you warm at 15 degrees. If you run cooler it will be a little less warm, like 25-30 degree bag. I would suggest a silk or thermo liner to put inside the bag.
Hi. Im a patroller and Copper mnt. and I ski Prophet 100's and I also own some seths and supermojo 105's. Im 6'2" 223lbs and love the prophets they ski and rip in trees like no other extremely quick in the trees and great feel on hucks and landings ski pow well but iff your skiing the backside get something wider than 100mm like the 130's or something wider. also for a stiffer fronside do everthing ski pick up some volkl mantras last year they had some problems with the wood core releasing the bindings but they fixed it this year.
No, this years model is better on hard pack ;-)... because of the vertical sidewalls
This is a follow up question for williw2272186. So even hough I need to ski anywhere i ski the piste about 50-60% of the time. Do you still think it would be better for me to ski the 100's?Thanky you
Im a ski patroller at Loveland Ski Area and im looking for a one ski quiver. Im trying to choose between the 90 and the 100. I cant really say what terrain I ski more because im ALL over the mountain everywhere except for the park usually. I need to know what one to choose.
