Anyone know if the 09/10 model Saint has a tail notch for skins? Both the 08 & 10/11 models look like they do, but can't tell if the 09/10 does or if the graphic just got cut off on the bottom...

Are these the newest model of the Onyx? Have read around that they improved a few things from their first model, though not sure when they first came out and if a newer model has come out. If so, are these it?

I own a pair of the New-Matics G-14's which worked great on a trip to the Alps, but found that when I had to rent boots for a second climb (euro-47), I could not extend the bar enough to make the boots fit (as my euro-46 size boots proved too small on a previous climb and caused some vicious hammer-toe and blisters).

Is there a kit available to convert the new-matic to a cramp o' matic version in order to adapt them to an alpine ski boot for AT? Also is there an extra-long bar available to adapt them to larger boots? A longer bar would probably be needed for the extra length of ski boots anyways... Ideas?

4 5

Read lots of reviews before deciding to buy, but am satisfied with the jacket. It's true to size and I like that it runs a little long, (M) is perfect for me at 6'1", though like others have said, there are a few small things that could be improved:-The hood is so-so, not sure how it's adjustable; the brim is kinda dorky but should be fine under a climbing/ski helmet, otherwise would probably tuck it under my pack-The fact it's advertised as a "fleece" is definitely misleading, if you're looking for a burly but not bulky fleece, stick with the Denali. This is a soft-shell made of slightly stretchy polyester & nylon alternating panels that makes me reminisce of my highschool track suits! Great feel though. It is warm of it's own regard and w/ a decent base layer, you'd be good in most conditions-The zipper feels good all the way up and the guard protects your throat (though others have said different), though wish it had a small Velcro flap to secure the zipper when fully up, like my trusty EMS fleece-The hand pockets are only snaps, NOT ZIPS, so won't secure much, definitely not a digital camera safely, there's a chest zip pocket that'll fit a power bar and not much else, so pretty disappointing thereOverall though, a great jacket but for the price it definitely lacks a few things though I can overlook them for functionality elsewhere. Think i'll wait however, for the TNF Aero jacket to become available (cheaper than the $249 starting price hopefully) and trade in for it.
