TLT radical FT on Salomon Rocker 2

Sandy and all,
Considering these binders as an option on my Rocker 2s. I have been using Dynafit on my AT specific skis and wanted to have a pair of bigger powder skis for taking into the backcountry and even riding in bounds. Any concerns or issues with riding the radicals on that type of ski?

I am 195, 5'11" and ski better than you.

These mits are amazing. They are the most comfortable and dexterous mitten I have ever worn. From first wear they are soft and broken in. I use these all winter in the cascades, and if I don't have them on they are in my jacket or pack the rest of the season, even touring in the summer. These are not an Everest mitt made for the worst conditions on the planet, what they are is a mitt that keeps my hands toasty, dry, and comfortable in the worst conditions in the Pacific Northwest. Epic mitten for epic times.

Easy with mittens. Sturdy when assembled. Consistent and confident when used. This shovel is it when you need something you can really use. Others might be lighter and have a more clever design, but the avitech is what you want in your hand when you really need it. Epic shovel, get it.

I really love these pants. They fit great. They are not tight in the thighs like the Patagonia soft shell pants have been. The exterior has good dwr coating to resist water and they dry really quick. The suspenders are comfortable but also easily removable. I prefer wearing mine with a web belt instead. My favorite thing about these pants outside of performing amazing, is that the interior of the pant is soft and comfortable if you prefer to only wear boxers or briefs beneath. Comfortable to be in all day wether on the mountain, or on a long drive home.

Other have mentioned this pant is a bit warmer, I didn't think so. Works perfect for me in the Cascades.

My little one got one of these for Christmas and she loves it. The fact it comes in pink and her size was a big plus. She has fun playing with it all over the house and when we are camping. It is plenty bright for her needs of navigating in the dark or going on some little adventure.

One pain is changing batteries, is it requires a screw driver.

Great softshell from Patagonia. I am 5'11, 190lbs and went with the large. I tried both the medium and the large, but decided the medium was a bit too tight under the arm pits. Also the large for me fits a little loose, so there is room for a layer or two beneath, plus comfortable room to wear your beacon beneath. The jacket has some nice finish details in the cuffs, zipper closure at neck, and hood. It is has a tailored athletic fit that really makes moving around very comfortable. For me this jacket is ideal for an outer layer skinning up the mountain on a dry day and then as a comfortable mid layer beneath a hard shell on the way down. This jacket is also awesome to wear around town or on the hiking trail when the temps are in the high 30s and up.

This review might not be helpful to everyone. Our family bought a couple of these packs to store emergency kits in. We live in the very rainy Pacific Northwest and figured it would be wise to find some waterproof bags/packs we could use to store our 72-hour emergency kits. We have been very happy with them for this purpose. We also use them for transporting outdoor gear from in the back of our pickup truck to on the trail. We are not to rough on them, so we have not seen to much wear and tear.

I have to admit I was skeptical at first of the roll top closure system, but everything has stayed dry to this point. I am a believer.

I loved this glove the first season I got it. After about 50 days of use they began to pack out and loose warmth. After that they were better worn with some liners on cold days. Great dexterity, and comfort. Still use them
Gloves still good three years later, just not as warm and not as dry. Just not perfect.

Love this beacon. Easy to wear, easy to operate in gloves, easy to understand screen interface. I have practice with this device a lot and it does an amazing job at locating. I really appreciate both the on screen and audio feedback when in search mode. The audio feedback overall are incredibly helpful. The device makes practice fun and gives you confidence that you have the best tool for the job.
