These shoes are light, sturdy and look pretty sick. The picture makes em look pretty ham, I was worried but don't fret, the ladies won't diss. The tread is great, aggressive without being uncomfortable. Support is solid.
I can hone in a lot faster with this setup than my friends with BCA beacons... when we play around, I hopefully do a good enough job reading snow that I will never have to legitimate search. You can't forget to turn it on because you turn it on when you strap it on, pretty convenient. Seems pretty sturdy, haven't had to test that aspect of it yet.
I have a pair of 2008's, are they made in china?
Great goggles, picked them up for 30 with extra lens, although I received the wrong lens at first. The unreal Backcountry customer service cleared it up and sent me the correct lens pretty quickly. Only fogged on me a couple times, look bomb, everyone is jealous.
