That's link goes to a boot bag you would wear to a ski resort. I been backcountry skiing for years and I am not into skins and that setup. I would like a pack that holds skis nice and is desiged to do so, then I put my skis on the pack, and inside boots, shovel, snow axe, food, etc. I climb mountain Washington and ski Tuckerman Ravine about 30 times a season. Also after April we are forced to climb 4 hours to the top of the ravine ski the ravine for a few hours then pack back up and hike all the gear out. I was using a sweet LL Bean pack for years but it is old, and my North Face packs are for 3 days or more. So that's why I need a snow pack that can fit ski boots. Any help would be great.

I loved the price, being that it is a 299.99 tent paying 150.00 is a great deal, though, the 299.00 price makes you believe that this tent is worth that price. I am not so sure. I do like the tent but seems the material is cheap, though I am use to the older tents so maybe this material just seems cheap and is not.

I set up in back yard before a rain storm, and what is happening is the little black tabs inside the rain cover on both sides are filling up with water and dripping down into the mesh, and into the sides of the tent. I looked to see where it was coming from and looks like the little black tabs are soaked on both sides so not just one leak. I am confused why this is happening.

I believe I have put the tent together right, the directions were bad, but I have put tents together before matching colors. I really need a dry tent. Also the doors on both sides are low, I wonder how they would hold under flowing water from hard rain?
I have a climb in a few weeks and wish I didnt have to do a return and spend more money not sure what to do at this point, any ideas? Any advice?

Maybe these are park Goggles, NOT all mountain Goggles. I have been skiing for 35 years and bought these Goggles because I loved the design and new look. Smith has a great name and I was looking forward to the great lens. Everything I hoped for came true, but there was one problem. When I skied fast, and I mean gun hard down the mountain, air got in and my eyes watered and burned with the cold. I changed out lens still the same issues, watering eyes on cold days. So I try them 3 different days, and at a normal rate they seemed fine, but when I blasted down the hill they always leaked air inside them. I returned them and got the same pair hoping it was a defect in the pair I had, but the first day out was windy, and when I hit it hard, my eyes watered again. I was not happy. I just returned them for a pair of Oakley Splice. They have the same wide view, great lens, with a full frame around them. I am hoping with the full frame they wont leak air.

After paying 165.00 I was wondering the same thing. It seem when I was skiing at a low speed, or moguls, glades, they worked fine. When I gun down the mountain my eyes burn and watered, making it hard to see. I changed the lens, fixed the straps, and gave it 3 days, nothing changed. So I returned the pair I had for a new pair thinking there was a leak in the frame. I will be trying the new pair this coming week, but just thought it was strange that if you bend the frame a little you can see through to the inside. I guess that's cause they are frame less? I just hope air is not getting in, I will know. If so many for my style of skiing I need a frame around the goggles, though I would be shock if this is the case for 165.00 goggles.

What happens when you ski or board about 30mph down the mountain? My eyes watered with these, it is a shame cause I love them. But I ski very fast and if you look at these goggles around the edges where there is no frame you can bend slightly and see a crack, so I can see why my eyes watered, anyone else have this issue?

I bought a pair and I love them, the only issue is I ski fast, and when I let it rip, they leak and my eyes water and burn from the cold. I changed out the lens, resealed to face and try 3 difference days, still eyes watered. I love these glasses so I just returned them and ordered the same pair I am hoping it was a defect. Has anyone else have this issue when skiing or boarding real fast, or windy days?

I bought the The North Face Chromium Thermal Softshell Jacket - Men's, I love it but must run small cut for North face, it was a little tight so I returned, then I saw this soft shell The North Face Apex Mckinley Softshell Jacket - Men's. Does anyone know which would be warmer? I am looking for a soft shell I can put on a warm base layer under and wear skiing. So I need the warmest they have in North Face.

Thanks for the info, I would just buy the North Face Chromium, but I really like the the North Face Apex Bionic colors, very sharp. I have so many North Face Fleece I own and can wear under it. I am hoping to wear a Hot Chilly Fleece, and a nice shirt, and be warm. I am 5'7 1'70 I am thinking of the Large. I wear the windwall in a large fits just nice.

So I am looking for a jacket that I can wear skiing. I only buy North Face, and I already own some nice shells, Gortex, etc. But I want a light weight jacket with no hood that I can still wear in cold weather, like 20's. Something with a nice fit, flexible, and light. I hate bulking up, with layers and layers, and shells with hoods unless it is raining, lol. I do not fall a lot at all, but nice to have some water repellent. I would wear a hot chilly fleece under the jacket, and a nice sweat resistant shirt. I like the warmth the North Face Chromium seems to offer, but I love the two tone color of the North Face Apex Bionic with the black and the blue, looks sharp. For what I am looking for, if I wear a fleece under it, will the North Face Apex Bionic be real warm? Any advice, tips, etc, please let me know, I want to buy this week.
