The little lady got me this for my bday/xmas. Ive worn it for a few ski tours and it has performed very well. I own the large in TumbleGreen and it looks and fits very well. Im around 6' and 205 #s athletically built. Worn it touring up Mayflower Gulch, Pitkin Creek, and up Quandarys South Ribs. always worn with a Cap 3 underneath and very manageable dumping heat, keeps moisture out. Easy to throw a puffy vest over for some quick summit heat.
Cant wait to push some 14er summits in it

I own the Black and Forge gray. Perfect for chilly nights on the town.I rarely wear this while active, as I would definitely get too warm, and its not in my vest quiver for that. Classic look and cut. Even my dog likes it.

Long time telemark skier that has come back to the dark side. I really loved my Scarpa T1s, so am very intrigued by this boot. My question is, can you stiffen this boot up to a 130 flex? or what would be a better recommendation for a 130 flex touring boot?

Im currently in a non-touring Dalbello that is a 120 flex and am constantly skiing through the boot (folding the boot forward). I have looked at the Lange XT 130 but have heard varying reviews of the tour capability.

Ok, Im biased, being a Michigan born and bred, Im very partial to Carhartt. These are great work pants, and the double knee is crucial for work for me as a glazier. However, the color fades very fast. I think this is due to the 'weathering'?

Looking to get a pair for Colorado 14ers - spring and fall/winter looking at either these or the Mountain Trainer Mid. I got rid of the Trango cuz I felt they were too much boot. Im looking for something stiff that may be crampon compatible when i need them. Ideas? I wear a 44 in Sportiva.

Im just getting into sport climbing, and snagged this harness when it was on sale. Im a 34" waist with skiers thighs and the large fits well. The inner thigh could use more padding IMO, however, thats personal taste. Adequate gear loops for several QDs and ATC. Overall Im happy with the product and looking forward to more climbs in it.
