Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this hat any day I will be up in the mountains. Not only does it keep you warm and gets the girls. This hat is also more than a one season and done type of hat. This hat stays in good condition no matter how many times you put it through the wringer.

Absolutely an amazing ski. Skis great in the powder, easy to maneuver in tree (even in the 189), not too much swing weight on tricks. The ski is very soft and makes it very playful. Does well for hard charging big mountain skiing considering how soft it is, but isn't ideal. A ski you can also ski in the park on a down day. An amazing ski. Get it.

I used my old Pro 2 for many years and finally decided it was time to get a new one for skiing. Having a 26 liter volume it can fit your avi gear, camelback, and extra gloves/layers and anything else you need. Definitely not a backpacking pack though. It can fit one or two layers at MAX with all the other gear in there. No waterproof problems. Used the ski carry every day multiple times a day doing fourpines hikes and I was always able to get my skis on my pack before my friends. It's also very versatile and isn't just a backcountry backpack and can be used for normal travel and school, but more importantly it's a great backcountry backpack. Buy this pack

This pair is a big improvement from the skull candy titans. My titans lasted about a month and half then finally one ear phone fell off. Then the other kept shocking me. These are much better. I picked up a pair from steep and cheap for 11 bucks. No tangle from the wire coating, and much better quality sound. Hopefully they last longer than my titans

It's always nice to have a review after a season of using it instead of when you just get it. Water proof has not worn off after 50+ days of skiing. Definitely keeps the warmth in on the cold days, but you still have to layer. On the really wet deep powder days it will get a bit wet, but way less wet then the rest of your equipment. Also once you go inside it dries off very quickly. A tiny bit of de lamination near the pockets, but doesn't affect the jacket at all. Other than that it's built to last and is super strong. I've had a few encounters with tree's and this jacket does not rip! One thing that would be nice is if the hood was just a tiny bit bigger. It fits well, but not well enough for the super deep, blower, windy pow days. Buy this jacket if it's on sale. Way worth it!

Great helmet for the price. Its definatley a little bit big, but it has great protection for 120 dollars rather than 400 dollars. Go with a smaller size on this one cause hats will not work. They get in the way so much with this helmet. Its not that cold of a helmet.

I have a pair of 189 k2 pantoons with Diamir Fritchi bindings and you local shop should be able to bend them or put breaks on them that will fit right. Their are climbing skins that are prettty wide that will work with the ski not perfectly, but pretty good if your not doing too long of hikes.

First thing first. This skis is made to be center mounted. It flows so beautifully and is very easy to turn. At high speeds this ski is amazing. When you start to feel like your loosing control you can rely on those tails. Spinning is ridiculously easy even though its a very fat ski. In powder it floats like a dream. It ski's just fine on the groomers and hardpack. I even ski a little park with it. My everything ski.
