Although I haven't yet flown with this bag and I cannot speak for its long-term durability, it seems to be very well constructed and it has more than enough space for skis, poles, boots, etc. I probably won't check my boots in the bag, but it is nice to know I could if I had to.

In general I would suggest you follow Dakine's sizing guidelines, but in certain situations you may be able to get a longer ski into a smaller bag. Especially with twin-tips and extra large front shovels on many modern skis. I can easily fit a pair of 190cm Volkl Katanas in the 185cm bag.

Although many people may use the extra space, I wouldn't mind having the same bag and protection in a slightly tighter package.

During a rather amazing spill, my helmet took the force of my ski right across the top, protecting me from the hit and the ski edge slicing me up. This helmet not only protects your grey matter between your shoulders but it also keeps your head a perfect temperature. My head was always comfortable and with the vents you can adjust as necessary. The vent sliders can even be adjusted while wearing bulky gloves.

I beat this jacket up for a season in Aspen and I loved it. I also have the Marmot La Grave Jacket and I only wore it a couple days because it just didn't fit as well and it wasn't as light. The construction held up well but I did manage to do some light damage here and there running through some trees. Featherweight, big vents for spring skiing, solid construction

Cons: I feel like the neck needs some adjustments. It seldom felt right completely zipped up as it was either too tight around my mouth or I was having to scrunch it up under my chin. Often times your warm breath can even fog up your goggles because of the way it outlets up the neck.

I'm 5'10" and I bought a large. I tried a medium but it wasn't roomy enough for me to layer.

These were my go-to pants last season and they couldn't have been better. Solid construction and very good at keeping the elements out. Even when sitting and relaxing in the snow on a sunny day (read: wet snow), the outside might start to feel wet but you stay dry inside. They would be great pants regardless but having the bib add-on put these over the top.

I'm 5'10" with 31" inseam and I bought a medium. This year I plan to pair these with the Marmot Power Stretch 3/4 Pant. If I break the piggy bank I may purchase another pair in blue or yellow before this season!
