What's the weight for these skis? Not in tech specs
Isn't the touring binding included in this ski?
Anyone know the max weight on this cot is?
gloves are real nice looking, straight black, clean. The touch feature barely works with my android. You have to press hard to get it to respond, so forget texting remotely fast. I have tried other gloves such as the north face etip and worked nicely. Returning
I haven't sent this thing through the wringer quite yet., but have not seen any problems what soever. Definately a day pack though, but still beefy to hold my skis and food/water/equipment all day. Is low profile, and the pockets are just a no nonsense open pocket with a couple sleeves.
I know this isn't the DLX, but I still wish this model had the insulation sleeve for the bladder.
there is a large sleeve in there, multi purpose for your shovel and hydration(or whatever else). There is a loop at the top of that sleeve to hang your bladder so it doesn't sit.
I know you just ordered the XXL, but just to give additional confirmation, I'm 6'2" 240 with a 50" chest. the XXL is a very good fit. Still room underneath for layers and it is a very warm jacket by itself. The coldest day I skied in, 5F, only had my baselayer, a heavy thermal and the jacket and was totally fine.
There is plenty of for hip sizes, and the jacket conforms nicely with the adjustments(bottom hem and powder skirt)
I think you'll like it!
I got this off SAC for a cool $60. I'm 6'2" and it fits my prolite plus long pad just fine. The first night I used it it poured all night long and was dry in the morning. It's light and of course packs well cause there is not a lot of fabric.
However, There is minimal vestibule space for your gear. For multi day trips with a large pack, you will have to store outside or in your buddy's vestibule. Also, I'm not a big fan of the door on the front of the tent instead of the side. I'm not sure why they did this. It's not freestanding, but I don't care about that, use the included stakes.
However, because of the small volume of the tent, it does stay very warm at night in colder temps.
For the price its a steal, but you have about the same room as a bivy sack and heavier so.
Refreshing to find a good lamp with all the bells and whistles you 'need' at an affordable price. The combination of the regulated 100 lumens, waterproof, lockable, red light! spot and camp lights, and the power meter every time you turn the lamp on.
It takes 4 AAA instead of my old one that had 3 and it is a little heavier than my old princeton aurora, but the added lumens and the red light made me want to upgrade.
Also, free shipping from BC!
Ok, I know I just got it in the mail yesterday, but I'm wicked excited to use it. It's packs super small and is only 1 lb 6oz, comes with a compression sack and storage bag. and although I haven't used it in a practical sense yet, I got in it last night when it was around 45ish, and I was pretty toasty. just had my thin cotton work clothes on too. I'm a hot sleeper, so I should be fine in it and can't wait to use it on the trail this summer. Got it off sportchalet.com for $90!
Light, good size inside, 3 people is stretching it, but it can fit everyone inside in a pinch, without the gear obviously. I've had it for 3 years now, used in complete downpour, 30+ winds. It's a great tent, 5lbs a 2-3 person tent is pretty nice, Doesn't come with a footprint however, and sierra designs doesn't make one anymore, so will have to make one out of a nylon tarp and some gussets, but should be fine.
No issues with it what so ever. I'm going to waterproof it this year, the DWR has diminished a little, but still wont let water in. Love the two doors
My review is based on the difference between the mid raiths and my old pair of mid ll beans. While the old LLs were waterproof, they were full leather and didn't breath. These raiths breath like a pair of lungs. I have hot feet and can normally hike in 3 season boots in the winter, which also mean they sweat profusely. I hiked two high peaks in the ADK in the spring in these. Adk mud, ice and snow, and my feet were dry as a bone. They breath great and are completely waterproof. I have a pair of mountaineering boots with eVent and breath the same way.
After reviewing the comments on the some keens and the merrel moabs, I went with these because they seemed to offer more support on the sole. Other boots soles seemed to soft for me and might not be as comfortable on longer hikes.
Looking forward to trying these out on a 28 mile hike coming up. Hopefully, my review will stay the same and I'll continue to love these!
Needed to not get sludged on in rainstorms when hiking, these pants are waterproof. Simple, basic, lightweight, functional. The zips at the bottom allows to get them on and off quickly with boots. velcro and drawstring to keep them up.
Will this brake setup work for an older TLT Speed binding?
I bought these with the intention for camp show use. So far so good, Just sitting around camp in less than 20 degree weather and my feet were extremely warm and comfortable.
Over time a couple feathers had come out, but no rips yet, and fit small for me so I had to get the XL. but the only qualm I have have to deal with is because how I use them, which is cold weather camping and not casual. The sole is thin, if you're standing on ice for some time, you will start to feel the cold. If you're walking around or sitting, my feet stayed pretty toasty.
Overall, great buy off SAC!
Broad question. If you use them they way they are supposed to, then yes!
maybe, chunky is 17-18oz
look at the non insulated stoic bombshell jacket. They have images of the other colors.
Picked up a pair off SAC after reading the reviews. The only size they had was the XL when I normally wear L (38" waist) Thinking I would just return them if too big, had no idea how the sizing was as this was my first stoic pant. I gotta say though, after trying them on, I was surprised they fit almost perfectly. The L would not fit what soever. So yes, the sizing may be off a bit but I am happy with them.
Not sure what this ergo fit is really, but the flexibility of these pants is amazing, didn't run up the crotch or pull up off the ankle like many of my snow pants do. I'm not sold on no zippers on the front pockets, but the cargo pocket should fit the things I usually carry in there.
Can't wait to try these out in the field, northern NY is getting snow today (10/27), although it'll be gone tomorrow. If these pants work through the season I'll def be giving them 5 stars
Update: I've been wearing them constantly whilst alpine skiing, this past weekend I even wore them hiking and they performed admirably. Again, the flexibility of these pants is great, water resistant and light insulation, so when hiking in sub freezing temps, you are not sweating when moving, and not freezing when stopped.
After searching for a new jacket, a BC rep led me to the bombshell. My first impression, as like many others was the seemingly soft stretchy fabric which looked like I could catch a limb and rip it easily. But pay no mind, this fabric is strong, waterproof, windproof and breathable. I love it cause just on warmer days and wearing no layers, the fabric is very comfortable yet protects. I got an XXL as I'm on the cusp of being a tad larger than an XL. the sizing for me is perfect with use of layers.The main reason I got this was all the features on the shell which I have wanted and needed for years. wrist gaiters, pit zips, removable powder skirt and a high neck. Seriously, for the amount of shell you get for the money you pay is an unbelievable purchase. I think the only difference I have between this years and last years model is the recco reflector and the mesh in the underarm vents, which would be sweet to have, (but I digress)
After a full season of use, my subjective review was outstanding for this jacket. A few things to note; there was some minor pilling near the wrist pocket, the brim is not very stiff and if you're skiing east coast, you eventually will be skiing in the rain and a sloppy brim is just annoying for me.(non helmet wearer) Also, the wrist gaiters has this very dense material that pulls into your skin around your thumb after a couple hours of use, makes the hands a little sore. (kinda wish the brim was made from this material)
My collection of stoic products is growing exponentially.I got the deep tahoe which is great, not as electrifying colorful like some other stoic products
and...and the jacket is proven while using a homemade zipline...
