Telemark Skiing

Devon's Bio

I am a member of the US Telemark Ski Team and when not bumping gates I love hunting for fun lines in the woods! Its all about freeing the heel for me!

Bought two pairs of these for my girlfriend and sister. Boot is solid and if you hunt around you can find some for cheap. ( Used 1 day for $180, and BC.com for $365). The orginal liners aren't the best, both complained of being uncomfortable and super tight (Should have thermomolded) but they are both using other liners now. Boot seems to ski well. Only other downside is lack of a leash ring, the brakes love to drag in the snow and can really throw you for a ride if you get on ice. Having seen the scarpa lady boots side by side the scarpa product seems much better.

Great Visibility, Good Looks, Very Low Fogging, and Comfortable

Down Sides
1. Price.. Ouch
2. Lenses can be a pain in the butt to get into the nose piece, the rest of the contact points are a cinch but getting the lens clip into the rubber nose piece sometimes takes some serious pushing.
3. Foam deteriorates- The foam in mine is falling apart after 35 days this season. I always put them away dry and in the bag, can't explain that one.

I like the functions but not super impressed with quality.

After carrying 4 pairs of skis in a roll up bag on a trip I decided to spring for a wheeled bag. The weight is considerable but definitely worth it for the convenience. Easy to fit 3 pairs of "normal" skis in, maybe two pairs of fatties. But poles fit well and are separated by a padded insert. Overall a decent bag, seems burly, and is functional. Plenty of room to pack in the body armor and ski clothing along side.

Best Kneepad By FAR!
5 5

I ski with these religiously, for years I didn't wear knee pads and was highly skeptical of my need for them, but after a few too many bruises I sacked up and bought them. I thought they might be a bit too big to go unnoticed under ski pants but when your standing they are invisible. After putting these on my skiing has progressed significantly, no fear when carving of throwing the knee on the snow and is for conducive to aggressive tele styles. In terms of padding the VPD is the bomb, I can jump and land on knees in these and barely feel it, they are pliable when warm but on impact stiffen up!. Additionally they add a great deal of warmth and now the sweatiest spot on me while skiing is the knee. (Plus or minus here). The only negative is the slide on design, when touring you cant exactly put these on at the top and they are super warm on the way up. But in comparison to other pads that I have seen, these rock!!

Used this tent in everything from a winter snow storm to steamy summer nights and most recently withstood a tornado producing storm. Nothing but good things to say about this tent. Light, high quality, easy to setup, and a bright disposition to start your day right! Recently kept me bone dry through 55Mph winds and torrential rain! Most others tents were being blown over and soaking wet. Was able to go surf the next morning instead of drying out my sleeping bag! The mesh is awesome and although I was originally worried about the durability it has withstood some friends in a inebriated state with sticks and high winds along with several inches of snow. Hated the price but love the quality. Would recommend a thousand times over.

These are awesome. Used mine to haul 70 lbs of firewood down a mountain to a campsite no problem. When it came time to pack for college, 30 shirts/ 15 pants/ 3 shoes/ 3 sweatshirts all fit no problem! When i go home on weekends my rope/ tent/ extra back pack/ sleeping bag/ and clothes all fit in nicely. Highly recommended. The material is tough. plus looks alot cooler then a TNF base camp duffel.

This light has been a trusty partner in everything from ski touring at night in the winter, Climbing, Running, Hiking, Biking, Traveling, Camping, kayaking and Partying when the power goes out. I bring it with me when ever I hit the road and have driven with it because the lights failed on my truck. (dont recommend but point is it worked!) At about 30 MPH i wasn't over running my headlights. The buttons take a bit to get used to and the half push is certainly finicky sometimes but other then that I would highly recommend. Just bought another for my dad and he has nothing but good reviews. Battery life is phenomenal but to maintain brightness must be changed after about 6 hours of burn time.

I purchased this rope to have something durable to teach people how to climb. But after getting up on the rocks you can tell this can handle a lot more. It isnt too heavy and is very easy to play out. I haven't noticed the same catching issues with both an atc and gri gri. In fact the monster markers offer some peace of mind and stand out so much you would have to try to miss them. Great rope definitely recommended.

I have used this lamp primarily for night hiking and climbing. It is so bright it will burn your eyes out if you look directly at it. In the woods the 3 watt LED is great for spotting blazes down the trail while the flood lights are great when your on single track trying to pick your route or climbing searching for that next hold. The batteries last a ridiculously long time. It only loses one star because the brightness settings with the half depression of the switch is difficult to figure out but other than that it will do everything you need.
