Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After a season of racing on these, there is no disputing that these bindings are designed to cruise uphill. As others have pointed out, the downside is that grooves develop in the heel spring. Also, I needed to adjust the toe lock tension screw after the lever and lock bump have both shown some wear as well.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great lightweight aluminum crampons that give you the extra purchase needed in firm snow or refrozen corn. So light,they are barely noticeable. Stay off rocks and these guys will last a long time. They do include a wear indicator when worn enough to need replacement. They fit securely on Dynafit TLT5 boots.

The weight for these is incorrectly listed as 24.6 oz/pair when it is actually 350g (12.6 oz)/pair. As with the naming convention for most CAMP products, the weight is right in the product title!

If you are looking for tights to use as a base layer for skiing, I would recommend going with something in 3/4 length. That way you don't have the extra bulk of the tights inside your boot or bunched up around the calf. Might want to look at the CW-X 3/4, Mountain Hardwear Mighty Power 3/4 or a few brands make 3/4 merino.

I received an X10M as a replacement for my X9Mi after extended use. The widely reported problem of the bezel separating from the watch seems to finally be resolved.

Battery life is greatly improved in this version and initial acquisition time is also much faster. I use this watch to log my track on trail runs, bike rides, and adventures in the mountains. I rarely lose GPS signal after waiting a few minutes for a good lock before starting out.

The one thing I hoped would change and have wanted since first getting an X9 is the ability to independently set the altimeter recording interval. It is fixed based on GPS recording interval. When I just want to record altitude (GPS off), the resolution of altitude recordings tend to under-report total vertical as I have already transitioned on the summit and started my descent before it ever gets a chance to record a data point at the summit.

All beacons are capable of searching for multiple victims. Multiple antennae beacons make the complexity of this scenario much easier. This beacon will tell you if it detects more than one beacon. It does not, however, have the capability to mask a beacon once found. Instead, there is a 'special mode' that narrows the search angle, aiding in multiple burial scenarios.

The weight listed is incorrect. Weights per ski from the manufacturer (g): 1190 | 1290 | 1380 | 1470 for sizes 149 | 158 | 167 | 176. This puts the 176cm at just over 3 lb per ski.

The full rocker will make these ski shorter...

The full rocker will make these ski shorter than the full length of the ski. You might want to size up from a traditional camber ski.

Lots of room to fit all the required gear for a day tour or light overnight to a hut. The shovel blade pocket is a great feature as well as the full side sleeve for shovel handle and probe. The daisy chains give lots of options for strapping gear to the pack. The one improvement I would like is a better ice axe attachment system. Even with the daisy chains, I haven't found a good way to attach the axe to the back of the pack. I prefer the way it is done on the BD Revelation.

This beacon has a lot going for it and simplifies the search part of the rescue. It has a "Multiple Burial" light the comes on if it detects more than one transmitting beacon. Although you can't completely mask a beacon once found, using the "Special Mode" allows you to reduce the search angle and lock on to the second signal. In the end, what matters most with beacons is becoming comfortable with the one you own and lots of practice.

A longer initial acquisition range is the only improvement I would want.
