These skis do NOT turn well in hardpack. Powder only skis. The tips are too bulbous and lifted to work in hard pack without huge effort unless you are very tall or on very short skis. It requires such forward effort that most people will go over the handlebars trying to get a grip in hardpack. Excellent fun on resort powder but not responsive enough through the trees (5'5" on 163's) but manageable fun on corn and crud with some effort. They must be using Amazon women in their testing.

This lofty jacket will be a favorite. The pockets are roomy and the breast pocket is the best. If I could request improvement, it would be for more bust room in all Arc’teryx jackets for women. The hand pockets could be slightly higher for better(less shoulder/elbow/wrist rotation) access. The fitting seams on the Maverick are perfect, but with filled pockets it's difficult or impossible to zip up, and since it’s already very tight on the top, this pulling makes the arms seem smaller. I can't use this as a technical jacket for the reasons described, but it is great around town.
