I am debating with myself between Temptation and Kenja. I am off piste most of the time. Temptation does not look like freeride ski (in terms of shape) but it has that "rocker" which is supposed to improve floatation in powder. Does it actually work like that. Or do the traditional more strait skis like Kenja (or others "similar" on the left-hand side of this page) float better even without rocker ends? I am not talking about real powder skis, because I prefer to use ski-lifts (not enough $$ for heli), and deep powder is not always available... SO we are in all-mountain category but with strong appeal for powder.

My Patagonia coat

Kyrgyztan (near China) horse back riding.
If you debate with yourself if to take an extra jacket or "travel light" - this is your answer - take this jacket. It is so light and compact, that you still travel light. It's a shame, on Backcountry site they do not have a picture of this jacket as it folds into its own pocket. It becomes as small as 2 cans of cola. Nevertheless it is pretty warm. Comes very handy when it gets chilli...
I also found it very useful as an insulation layer for skiing. In combination (or alternation) with a thin shell it gives a lot of flexibility.
