Green Mountains, Adirondacks, Wasatch Range
Used it a bunch and the pot is holding up great. The pan on the other hand doesn't like my whisperlite- even on the lowest I can get my stove to burn it immediately warped on my first bacon fry (pretty flimsy). The non-stick has been peeling (not the pot though), which is too bad. Still a great set.
The vertical board carry straps are sturdy and the exterior is a nice wide nylon cordura that is super tough to slice through, snowshoe crampons ruining your new pack won't be an issue. If you end up with the stash you'll be happy, I use it for touring and it hasn't disappointed
I used to hijack my dad's old Rivas until I got sick of too little tension and a few too many nosedives. Picked up a pair of O2s and while they took a little breaking in and are definitely heavier they get the job done. They flex evenly with my garmont boots and I've never had any problems. The weight doesn't bother me either and I have no problem touring. I see guys on the O1s but I'd rather have a little tougher climb with fewer mechanical problems if you know what I mean
Perfect for my havocs, the only skin I use. I bought factory seconds and they have been awesome (and saved around 40 bucks). The tail clip is great and I've never had problems with the glue, even getting them wet on laps and they stick fine. Still haven't replaced the glue and will probably only have to get a new pair when I get some new boards
