Amazing. super light and warm. doesn't protect you from the wind very well, but paired with a shell, it works super well. BUY IT!
Awesome. thats the only way to describe. super light and stable at high speeds. Suffers on tight turns on hardpack (who cares), but turns on a dime in the freshies and the trees. the best ski I've ever been on. By far. (best paired w/ the Duke)
The Mule is an awesome pack for all lengths of ride. It's big enough for the epic rides and light enough for small excursions on the local trail. Got Great back ventilation and lots of room for rain gear and spare parts. The Mule Is Amazing!
