Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this cam.
This is my 2nd Contour cam, 1st being the ContourHD and I really like the upgrades. Now all my friends ask me to get their speed down the slope and since I got 2 cams. I use the pole mount for my ContourHD to get closer and different angles while skiing down slopes or hitting the park.
It's really cool that it comes with a waterproof case.

The Contour cams are easy to use and with Contour+2 its even easier. just slide the button forward and you are recording.

I am much happier with the Contour+2 than the ContourHD due to the GPS and how much easier it is to use.

Got 2 friends with the GoPro cam and they hardly use it, I use mine all the time. Really like how easy it is to mount and how sleak it look on top of the helmet, and not being a huge box high up over the helmet like the GoPro.

Little late answer, but I would say yes, you can open up under the arms to vent when needed. I easily get very hot in this if I don't open up the arm vents a little. One of my problems is that I would rather sweat then freeze so I layer up more than needed.
I've found a good combo with UA (UnderArmour) coldgear base and a UA hoodie. This keeps me warm plenty warm and keeps me cool at the same time.

The pole mount is great for adding a new angle and/or get closer to friends yet keeping a safe distance.

Only mount I don't like is the goggle strap mount. On or off the piste, it make my Contour+2 bounce and wiggle.

The rotating flat surface mount was great until I forgot I had the cam ontop of the helmet skiing in the woods. I'm greatful it broke and not the camera.

Great backpack

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Nice and small backpack, but there is still room for a camelback and extra jacket and/or a few layers.
It feels good on the back and is stiff enough so I feel like my backplate isn't necessary.
Sitting in the ski lift it can feel bulky if you got it packed with stuff, other than that there is no issues.
Have yet to use the shovel and probe (sort of a good thing, hehe) , but I have tested it.
The shovel snaps in place fast and easy, same goes for putting it back when finished. It feels sturdy and was helpful when I got the car stuck in the snow.
The probe deploys fast and easy, the locking also is easy and smart. When done, it's also easy to take apart. There is also easy to read markings to check for dept.

I'm the one in the red jacket in the picture and you sort of see how small this backpack is.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Only had 1 day on these skis and I loved them. Can't wait to get back out there and really test them out.
So far they are great and super light compaired to others I've tried.
