This helmet has served me well over the past couple of years. It does vent very well which makes temperature control easy. While it fits my head well, there is a gap between my goggles, which are made by Smith as well. I'd like to think that a company like Smith would make sure that wouldn't happened with their own goggles. It is also a very large helmet that makes you look like you have a space helmet on. In the future I think I will go for a different helmet that is a better value for the money.

There are lots of good things about this pack: quality materials, well made, just the right number of pockets and is comfortable. My only gripe is small, I don't like zippered sleeping bag compartments because in the Pacific Northwest it is necessary to line ones pack to keep things dry so it is useless, just a weak point in the pack that might leak. I cannot fault it too much though because I knew it had one before I bought it. The only other thing is I am not sure how well it carry heavy loads because I haven't loaded for a week or more trip yet.

This shell has everything you want without any needless extras. I have never gotten soaked through with this on, everything beads off. The fit of the jacket is also better than anything else I have tried on. The price tag is through the roof though, I waited till was marked down on sale. Arc'teryx can get away with selling it at price because no one else can match it.

The Line Prophet 100's do everything you can hope for with a fat all-mountain ski. They can cruise through any condition, expecially booming through crud. They are not the most nimble skis out there but that is because they have 100mm under foot.
