Joey W's Bio

To those who have struggled with them, the mountains reveal beauties that they will not disclose to those who make no effort. That is the reward the mountains give to effort.

And it is because they have so much to give and give it so lavishly to those who will wrestle with them that men love the mountains and go back to them again and again. The mountains reserve their choice gifts for those who stand upon their summits.

-Sir Francis Younghusband

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

This is an incredibly versatile midlayer. I've been very impressed at the range of temperatures i can wear this in and still feel very comfortable! It is VERY similar to the Patagonia R1 which is a very popular midlayer as well. I wear this layer on its own when touring and its very breathable and soft on the skin. have also worn this on super cold days as a piece of my layering system and it works great. I find myself wearing it around the house too because its just that comfortable. I went to order a 2nd but we sold out of my size unfortunately... My only 2 gripes: I wish the material around the mouth was softer so its more comfortable when you zip up all the way. Second, I wish the thumbholes were lower on the sleeves (maybe I just have long arms but when I use the thumb holes, I feel like im pulling on the sleeves the whole time). Besides that, great work Armada!

These pants are super warm and relatively lightweight. I brought them with me on a yurt trip to Montana and this was perhaps the most important piece of clothing I brought. On super cold nights these kept me comfortably warm! If you are going to be in extremely cold situations, I highly recommend getting a pair of these. The DWR coating keeps them semi-waterproof and since it uses synthetic insulation (not down) it still maintains its insulating properties if they get a little wet in the snow.

Your skis would work with a medium or long length G3 skin. I did a little googling and found that your skis are 120mm wide at its fattest point. So based on what we have in stock the medium 130mm skin is your best option. Enjoy!

Hey Lu,

You can change the lenses on these. Its not terribly difficult but its not a quick switch that you can do on the lift. Definitely something youd need to take gloves off for.... If you want some goggles where you can change the lens on the fly id check out the Oakley airbrakes:

Same shape and feel as the splice but with a quick flip lock so you can change lenses super fast.

Hope this helps!

I did a little Googling and found that the total length is about 22" and the 15.7" measurement is just the blade. Answering my own questions, its like high-fiving yourself (which I just did) BAM.

Does anybody know if the 15.7" measurement is the total length of the saw including the shaft or just the blade? If its just the blade, does anyone know the total length?

Hey there,

You could probably stretch out the breaks if you really want to make it work but I wouldn't recommend it.; the breaks would be very ineffective with that much stretch. I'd go with the next size up to make sure they fit properly!

Hey Dwayne,

Ive skied both the JJ and exit world and find that the JJ skis shorter than the Exit World for sure. So you will find the 174 Exit world skis longer than the 175 JJ.

Hope this helps!

Hey Austin,
You might be able to bend the 115s wide enough to "fit" but with that much stretch the brakes really wouldnt be too effective at all. Id recomend the Rossignol FKS 140 with the B130 break or the Look pivot 14 with the 130mm break. Those will both fit great!
