I've been filling my life with extremes as long as I've known.
Once a addict\alcoholic to a endurance biking, backcountry snowboarder.
I ski\ride all year long on the glaciers in the PNW. Splitboarding changed how I look at summer time. Shoulder seasons I can be found ripping single tracks and bike parks or sending routes.
Its windproof. Luckly it has vents!
Trango, Camp and Cassin are under the same parent company.
Like Atomic and Salomon skis.
So personally I'm a fan of the OR Sombriolet Sun hat.
I like sombriolet shape, its longer in the back and has a larger brim all round. There are slit vents along the dome to cool your melon.
The transit hat has more mesh siding on the dome, I just prefer the other shape.
Hope that helps!
Patricio, I'm about your same build, Arc'teryx Large fits me very well. This jacket is a trimer fit to be worn as a layer and not an outer layer.
I'm kombucha guy, and as long as the lid will screw back on, you're golden!
So I have this bag in In a 175cm but have used it to transport boards ranging from 156 to 170 with no problem. You will have a little room in the front(non wheeled side) like you said your old bags would. but if you have boots in the pockets and some gear in there to fill the void, the bag will wheel just fine. Personally, packing all my riding gear into the bag makes sure its all with me and I don't forget my gloves in my other pack. And like I said, fills the space. When packing a car its best to have your gear all protected in that sense as well. Its an awesome bag!!
Jean, Travis is right.
Its fairly easy to piece together the kit. Especially now that there are other binding options out there.
If you're going to be using regular snowboard bindings mounted to slider plates, You'll need the Puck kit, dual heel risers and touring brackets. And climbing skins.
This time of year they can be hard to find all in one retailer.
You can upgrade to the karakoram binding system which comes with all their parts.
Regardless, splitboarding opens up doors for you. Have fun!!
Will the ski straps fit 140mm splitboard skis?
Are the Aframe\compression straps opposing? As in can they be used to carry a snowboard vertically? Are they long enough to reach the opposing buckle?
clipping the helmet to the rope strap under the lid and tightening the brain down holds it very secure and out of the way. I prefer this than a dedicated helmet carry system, which is just extra bulk and weight. And with the Anarchist already weighing close to 5 pounds I start counting the extra ounces.
I was worried about channeling my inner free rider carrying a heavy loaded pack. I think the hipbelt swing arm combo really makes a difference.
Inter Glacier, Mount Rainier.
Too warm for a puffy but windy enough to get a chill: Solution, the Helium!!
Clip version works with Fitwell backcountry snowboarding boots!
Thats splitboard, boots, helmet ice axe, puffy, shell, gloves, loaf of bread, crampons, cigarettes and well.. my pants..
White River trail after riding Inter Glacier
So Black Diamond thinks all people are short. Really bummed
Awesome material though
You need a strap version not a pro or clip model.
These pants are quite. Much more like a softshell fabric. Not as waterproof as gore but way tougher. I've used these pants 100+ days a year for 3 years now and still rocking them.
I'd advice against it. Mostly because this is a winter sport pack, the backpanel and shoulder straps are not breathable and you'll over heat. The pockets also are fairly sport specific. The summer line up of Dakine packs may be more what you're looking for. They do have some awesome patterns!! Personally I'm a fan of the osprey day packs, amazing breathability on the backpanels. Hope that helps!!
I'm about your same build and my favorite boards are between 160 and 170. They have more stability and float. For a 13 you for sure want a wide!! You can avoid some drag by "ducking" out your stance past 20 degrees. The Never Summer wide boards are hands down the best boards out there for all round freeride. Hope that helps!! Keep shredding
