I switched from some old SPDs to these just recently and they are Great. Easy in easy out. I never feel like I am completely locked into the pedal so the fear of not being to get out in time is never in my mind.

There are two settings when you set up the cleats for how much you have to turn your foot to release from the pedal. I chose the lower setting so that I can get out quickly when needed. No pre-releases yet. The higher setting requires quite a bit more roation.

This pack is way more comfortable than I ever imagined. I'm pretty much an exclusive Osprey pack person after feeling how this one carries.

Plenty of room for all of my gear. Huge hip belt pockets for easy access. Low profile for riding on chairlifts when in bounds.

My only complaint is that the only access into the main compartment in through the back panel. While this is great out on the snow. When I am loading up in the morning my I want to just stuff everything in the top and go.

On the flip side this helps keep me organized, and the pack is built for the trail not my living room. I guess it is just going to take a bit of getting used to.

When I got this jacket the first thing i commented on was how it weighs almost nothing. You barely even know you are wearing it.

The second thing I noticed is that on it's own, really not all that warm. This is my first down jacket, correction sweater. This is not a jacket to be warn by it self on those super cold days when you are not moving. It is great to keep in your pack for that extra layer. Perfect for those shoulder season days. But in the dead of winter i want something more.

That said Great Sweater... just not what I was expecting.

I skied on these a lot in bounds before taking them for a tour. They are very strong and I was never once concerned that I wasn't able to control my skies due to the bindings.

Finely took them for a tour and they were great! The two climbing levels were everything I needed. Light Light Light on the climb.

Once I got to the top and put them into ski there was a bit of trouble. Lots of snow gets built up under the plate and it prevented me from fully locking them down. They will lock in place with snow under but only in the front. As I started to ski away the heel raised up. Luckily I wasn't on a steep pitch yet.

So long story short, make sure you clean out all the snow under the plate before locking them in ski mode. And make sure they are locked down all the way. Not hard to due... just something to be aware of.

I love my new Marmot Genesis Jacket. It is sooooo light, completely wind proof, and it just looks cool. I wore it in the rain and the water just beaded. I wouldn't ware it in a torrential down poor, but it is a winter jacket, it shouldn't be raining in the winter anyways.

I have the blue one, if you are going to get it, get a different color. I have already seen 3 other people with the exact same jacket out on the hill and I don't like looking like other people out on the hill.

That said, I guess I'm not the only person who loves it. I have broad shoulders and am 5'9" and I usually wear a Large, I had to size up to an XL so I could move my shoulders freely. That is the only reason for the 4 star rating instead of a 5, the sleeves are a bit too long for me now. But other than that... I LOVE IT!

Once I saw this pack I knew I must have it. And I'm glad I did. I have taken it biking and trail running and it hasn't disappointed. When it first arrived I thought it would be too heavy, but once it was loaded and on my back I almost forgot about it. The size is perfect for everything you need, but small enough so you don't take too much extra. I will get many miles of use out of this pack.

Luckily I haven't had to use this yet. When I received it it felt a little heavy for it's size, but that's probably because it's made out of metal. It's small and sits out of the way in my pack. I'm sure I'll forget it is even there over time until my chain finally falls apart, which hopefully won't happen for a while. (Cross your fingers)

I was about to drop a ton of money on a new saddle before I bought these shorts, now I'm putting that purchase off. These stay in place at every point, but aren't so tight that they are uncomfortable. They are great to throw under any outer short if you want pockets, which i usually do, but are also great on their own if you don't mind showing off a little more of yourself.
