I wore this for four days straight. At least six hours a day. Very comfortable. Three days had temps in the low 40's. With the vents open I did not get hot and sweaty. The one cold and windy day my head stayed nice and warm. My Smith Phenom goggles worked great with this helmet. And it looks cool.

I just got back from four days of awesome skiing. Three at Winter Park and one at Steamboat Springs. Three days of temps in the low 40's and one cold cloudy snowy day. These goggle preformed great. NEVER fogged once. We skied over 90 miles according to ski trax. Hit it very hard in the warm weather and zero fogging. Last season my Anon Figments fogged constantly. Not these. I used the Red Solex mirror lens for the bright sun and the Gold Sensor Mirror for the cloudy, snowy day. Great vision.

I'm 6'1" 225#. 50 YO. Been skiing for 40 years. Very aggressive, strong and athletic skier. I demoed a pair of Mantras at Keystone for two days this past March. Great fun. Even as wide as they are I could easily string together tight slalom turns. Letting them loose in big super G style runs was awsome. They were very fast and very stable at speed.(54mph by GPS) Handled the afternoon ice with ease. I did have trouble with them in the bumps. But I had a huge grin on my face everywhere else.

I wear an 11 1/2 or 12 street shoe. I bought these first in 29.5. The shell was way too big. 3+ fingers behind my heel. switche to the 28/28.5 shell with a 28.5 liner. They fit great. Put some heat moldable insoles in and these boots rip. I've been skiing for almost 40 years. These are by far the most comfortable boots I've owned. Stiff and responsive. They let me put everything into the ski almost instintively. $299.00 for these boots is a steal.

Huddled under this tarp, in the rain, just north of Rocky Mountain National Park. Rained on us ALL day. Set this up near the fire and played poker and just hung out. Worked great. Extremely lightweight. It's very slick and that made getting it back into the tiny stuff sack interesting. It rolls up smaller than a Nalgene and weighs less than a full bottle. Perfect to cover the cooking and hanging out area at basecamp.

I bought these for Ranier and maybe Aconcogua. Haven't been to either yet but I have worn these on several winter 14ers in Colorado. Awsome boots. They fit a little narrow. I have medium width feet and these felt a bit snug at first. Now they feel great. Warm, waterproof and comfortable. They are stiff. They hold onto my BD sabertooth crampons like boot and crampon are one piece. I am a big fan of La Sportiva. These are the best for the money.
