I got the ginormous 8400cu in size in this bag to fit all my motocross gear in one place - and it rocks. Everything fits in super easy, the bag itself is very durable and the wheels are designed well so that it looks and acts more like a duffel than a roller but you just tip it up and roll away without having to lug a big heavy bag over your shoulder.

HOWEVER, I just noticed that I got the 2008 model, not realizing that the 2009 model is in stock: http://www.backcountry.com/store/TNF3883/The-North-Face-Rolling-Thunder-Duffel-8400cu-in.html

The only two gripes I have with this bag look like they are fixed on the 2009. The first is that the zippers are really hard to move and have no zipper pulls to help out, and the second is that the wrap-around straps that form the handle are weirdly attached to the very bottom of the bag, so they are awkward to grab. Both of those problems look like they are fixed on the 2009 version.

Bottom line: it's a sick bag when you need something huge that's durable and super easy to haul around.

I got these bindings with the Alpina BC 1550 Cross Country Backcountry Boot and the Alpina Woody Ski #ALP0221. With a little study these would be easy enough to mount by yourself, but I had a local shop do it for $30. The bindings are just what you need: get in them, get out of them, do both when you want. They're a great price, I'd recommend them to anyone.

These boots go well with the Alpina Rotefella NNN BC Auto Binding - Item #ALP0206.


I was debating between these and the Alpina BC 200L Touring Ski Boot and went with these because I tend to have cold feet and the extra support can't hurt when you're out trailblazing. I took them out tonight and I was very happy with their performance. They were easy to get on/off and my feet stayed plenty warm. I felt that they gave me plenty of support and I was trail breaking in about 8-9" inches of fresh (but heavy) snow.

Great boots, they should last me a long time.

Sizing was spot on - I got the 38s which is exactly right for my foot.

This is a great ski for just tromping around in, they're a little bit wider than a typical cross country ski so you can cruise off trail and have a little more stability and float if the snow is deep, and you can go with a shorter total length and get the same surface area. Truth be told, I use them to walk my dog around after a storm. They have full metal edges so they feel pretty solid whether going up or down.

I got these gloves to go on some cross country ski romps, but turns out they are my go-to gloves for walking the dog and in the car. The goat camo on the palm side offer tons of stickiness for when the dog charges after that lucrative to-go container that tipped out of the neighbor's garbage can, but also just enough warmth that I wear them in fairly cold conditions, 10 - 20 degrees if I'm moving. All in all, a great pair of gloves to add to your quiver.
