Thanks. Do you know how the Kung Fujas flex is compared to the Hellbent because I've heard they're pretty similar in flex. Also because I already have the Kung Fujas and only have money for one pow ski I want it to float super good. Would the Pettitor be fine in the deepest of deep and also I'm a little concerned it might be too stiff because I like soft skis. Even though my Kung Fujas are super soft I can still charge o them hard and the are super stable. Thanks.

Right now my only ski is the Kung Fujas and I love them, but I'm looking for a ski for the super deep days. I ski almost always at the resort and want something that can get me back to the lift. So I don't know if I should get this or the Hellbent. My only concern for the Hellbent is that it might be too soft for technical lines and that it isn't as stable as the Pettitor. The Pettitor seems like a better resort ski but I already have the Fujas and want something that will not sink. I ski in Alaska and do trees, pow, and pillows which the Hellbent sounds great for, but it sounds like it wouldn't be good for steep icy chutes. Thanks for the advice.

I'd go with 179s or even 189s. I'm 6'3" and ride 189 and they aren't too long at all because the rocker makes it feel shorter. Also 189s are going to be more stable

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This ski is so sick! It crushes everything and I mean everything. I've skied it in every condition imaginable and it kills everything I throw at it. It's average on ice, kills groomers, pretty good on crud/chunder, powder is great, but definitely not a pow specific ski. Floats through must pow, but sinks on the super deep days. It's a little heavy and scratches VERY easily, but none of that really matters because this ski is so much FUN. It's so playful and soft, but despite its softness you can slay anything. It's just an amazing ski. Great job Pep and K2.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This jacket has been pretty awesome so far. From wearing around the house, around the city, day hikes to -15 degrees, it has been perfect. I feel like the feathers come out a bit easy, but that's not to big of an issue. Really bomber jacket and it seems to be very rip proof. I am very happy with it and would recommend it. Also, the colors are sick! I have the Orange Spice/Blue Navy one.
