Steve's Bio

I love hiking my own lines and working for my runs. There is something about being in the backcountry surrounded by nature that makes everything from snowboarding to hiking envigorating.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this pack for some international travel and had problems with the zipper from the get go. I sent an email to Poler's customer service and they shipped me a new pack, no questions asked. It seems to be holding up great and I don't have any complaints with it. The bag itself is pretty spacious and the fabric is fairly heavy duty. I give it 4 stars just for the initial problems I had with it.

You know now they carry a set of earbuds!! which makes it so you don't have to mount the unit at all to your helmet. I agree it makes you look ridiculous. But I ordered their short earbuds just put the unit inside my coat and it works great. And yes, you can listen to music and intercom as well. The signal does not affect the beacon because it is a different signal all together.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Pick up a pair of these and head for the slopes instead of the bar! They look amazing and perform even better! I love the fur, intricate beadwork, and waterproof leather. They keep my hands warm and dry all day in ~5*F weather. I have yet to try them in colder temps but will update this review when I have done so. So far, I absolutely LOVE them! **One thing to note is that the leather, at least on mine, is much less copper than the picture, and more of a brownish color**

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this product almost every day this season and found that it works just as advertised. The clarity is amazing and the voice activated calling is pretty cool. I thought the range was a long shot on their specs but I was able to talk from the top of Mineral Basin to my buddy at the bottom just fine. I don't know if I was just in super ideal conditions or what, but it worked. Great product!

This is a great all around light. Because of the frosted globe, the light isn't blinding but it is bright enough to do pretty much everything around camp. I find it's best suited for playing cards around a makeshift table at night or reading in the tent. I would definitely recommend buying the rechargeable battery kit though to save on batteries.

This thing is definitely not for the faint of heart. It is bomb proof and lasts forever. I have never had a bad experience with water that I have filtered from this. The ceramic filter cleans VERY easily (literally just twist the top off, slide it out, and wipe it off). Add to the construction a lifetime warranty and you've got yourself a filter you just can't pass up. I won't ever buy another one because I wont have to. Great product.

This all depends on if you are flying domestic or international. Look up where you want to fly and see what they specify. And as far as which one is the best, that will all be based on your specific needs (do you need to throw everything in a duffle-like bag or do you need multiple separate compartments? Once you decide, hop on chat with the Backcountry staff and they will help you out.

The old Burton disks will fit in the Union baseplates just fine. However if you want the Union disks, the M6 adapter plates do not come standard with the purchase of Union bindings. You can pick them up at your local shop or REI. I haven't seen them here on BC.
