Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

After two solid seasons of abuse, they're still holding strong. I've done plenty of scouting and sketchy portages in these shoes, and they inspire more confidence and trust when walking on wet rocks with the kayak shouldered. They also provide a good stable platform, and drain more than good enough.

The only slight negative about these shoes is the bulk they add, meaning if you have a tight fit in your boat, you might not be able to use these shoes.

Does it's job just about perfectly. Luckily haven't had to use mine in any real scenarios yet, but from training and checking snow depths it's been solid so far. It might be a bit short for some scenarios, and a carbon probe would without a doubt be a bit lighter and stiffer. But it's quick to deploy, has clear markings and is overall an excellent product with good value.

Well. If you want a durable binding I would suggest you look away from griffons. I've been riding Jester's with no problem for some time, and I'm very happy with them, lightweight and burly enough. Now the FKS 140 isn't the same the older bombproof FKS140/Pivot 14s, as it has the PX-style toe, and not the pivot-style (pivots are the same as fks). STH 16 would also be a great choice I guess. The STH 14 driver is solid too. Atomic FFG is the same as the STH..

So in short I would look most at Jester or STH16, or sth14 driver (same toepiece as 16, not sure if the make a non-driver toepiece sth14 anymore) And if you end up with STH, buy FFG if they're cheaper as they are the same.

Simple, easy to use beacon! I've had no problems with mine whatsoever. Searching is easy and fast, and I like the mechanical switching to search mode. Although it lacks the advanced functions of the Pieps DSP and Mammut Pulse, it's still one of the best out there. And probably a better choice for most people, that will most likely never need the advanced functions of the two other ones. I would most definitely recommend this to anyone buying their first beacon.

Love it! Does the job perfectly, and digging works fine with mitts to thanks to the D-handle. I don't think you can require much else from a shovel. Although it might be a bit on the heavier side for long touring.

I actually felt I got a lot of other stuff in there too. I've had the shovel combined with beers, clothes and a lot of other stuff in there during the season ;)

This thing is the perfect little sleeve for keeping those things that usually float around in the backpack or on your desk when you're at home. Enough room for passport, travel insurance cards, memory cards for the compact camera, plane tickets etc. Thanks to this sleeve I now know where I got those travel essentials in my otherwise messy dorm room.

Got the Fire iridium for those nice sunny bluebird days, the G30 for those changing days and the Clear ones for night skiing. They have all been solid for me, had some hard falls with them, and barely any scratches. I wear the crowbar with a Sweet Rambler helmet though, so the goggles might take a bigger beating when riding without a helmet, flying of the head etc..

As sport headphones these aren´t really that good, you have to have the goggle straps over them while skiing to keep them on your head. The sound is weak, and every outside noise will disturb most of your music. I currently use mine only with the macbook pro around the house. I would recommend the iCon or even better the new iCon 2 instead, or maybe some earbuds.
