Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I'm 5'9", 180 lbs, 32-33"waist, athletic build; I originally got the medium but had to send them back, they were right on the limit of my waist size, crotch was a little high & they felt tight / constrictive around the crotch / upper thighs when high stepping. I sent them back & got the large & they are a much better fit (if ever so slightly baggy, but as i'm using these for backcountry touring / freeriding I appreciate the looser fit). Quality is top notch as expected from Volcoms premium outerwear. Only thing I'd suggest is another pocket or two, maybe a cargo pocket, other than that they're awesome.

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

Great little pack for side country / short tours. Has just enough features / pockets for half day trips, top quality construction & detailing & the fit is excellent. Seems like it will last for years as well. Very happy with this purchase.

am tossing up between this ski and the Dynastar Distorter as a Southern Hemisphere quiver of one ski...used with PLUM Guide bindings as a side / backcountry ski. Our snow is generalmy more moisture laden so nothing over 92 or so mm in the waist. Any thoughts / comments on which would be the better all around ski and why? Many thanks in advance :-)

Any chance you could add a photo of the Ionic Blue color, so I can be sure of the actual color (often the advertised color is not a true representation). Surprised no one has asked any question or added any revioews, looks like it would be quite a nice backcountry / sidecountry jacket? Thanks in advance.

Hi,
can anyone tell me how this fabric (MF) stacks up against the Pertex Endurance UL fabric? I am trying to decide b/w this bag & the Feathered Friends Lark (which is a bit roomier - not necessarily a good thing IMHO). I do want a water resistant outer shell, a must in SW Tasmania's fickle & often wet conditions. Any other comments on this bag would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Stuart.
