Fit: True to size

These shades are stylie and strong. They survive throwing them in the pack when you put your goggles on and are perfect for a night on the town. When you only want to grab one pair of shades for a big trip these are the ticket!

New ramp angle keeps rocker launch to zero. While it technically has less pivot points than the hammerhead, you still have a wide range of active positions to choose from. Built off of the platform of the popular Axl only with out the tour mode and at a much cheaper price. Awesome resort binding!

Bought this pack as our filming work horse and it has gotten beat up quick. I would agree that as a travel pack it is legit, tons of pockets, compartments and plenty of room to store all you need. However when you put shovel, probe and a pair of skin in the pack there is literally no room for extra layers, food etc. We also carry around a heavy tripod and after one season of use one of the shoulder straps is ripping out and the tripod loops are beginning to rip out (we did load the hell out of the pack, skis in Aframe, tripod, full camera gear). Fine for its price but use it is a travel bag and not heavy use.

These bindings do it all, plain and simple. They tour well, ski even better and are BURLY. They have a small ramp angle which helps eliminate rocker launch, made in the US and can also be outfitted with stiffy springs. The stiffy springs help drive larger, fatter skis and make the already active binding, that much more active. I have never broken a pair even weighing 250lbs with gear skinning and skiing on them. If your worried about the price, you shouldn't be, because they will be the last binding you buy.

The first time I laid hands on this probe I was dumbfounded at how light it was. Featherlight comes to mind yet doesn't quite do it justice. Aside from the low weight is its performance. The probe ASSEMBLES BEFORE IT EVEN HITS THE GROUND, even on my first try it went together that quick. That is damn near unheard of and when every second and gram counts, this s the probe I grab.

Yea it is a shovel and yea they all do the same thing. Or do they? I have used many a shovel and I really like this one. It is not the lightest shovel out there but it can dig with a shovel twice its weight and size. I snowmobile a lot and therefore get stuck a lot which means a lot of shoveling. This thing moves the heavy crap, cuts great pits and stash's in a nice small package.

This is a very well thought out pack and takes a couple uses to realize just how many features it comes with. The roll top opening closure is one of my favorites and really makes the pack fit to what you have in it. The side pocket for the probe and shovel handle fits a variety of makes and modes and the separate shovel blade pocket is a huge plus- you always know where your rescue equipment is. You can carry skis A-frame or diagonal, my personal favorite on this pack is A-frame. Even though it can fit a TON and has many features, it is extremely light and skis very well.

This boot is the answer to all things telemark. It has a smaller volume/narrower fit that really lets me feel every aspect of the turn, terrain and how the ski reacts. Because the boot is not dual injected in the bellows you get a great, consistent and stiff flex. The flex is progressive and predictable, two very important characteristics and a few less things you have to think about.

The micro adjust buckles let you dial in your fit for the down and open the shells fully for the up. The touring mode really allows a long and unhindered stride while touring.

The flat base/zero rocker makes bindings initiate instantly and with a longer bill than other companies it allows more contact to the wings of the bindings.

The boot is extremely user friendly, don't shy away from it because it says "race"- you will love it no matter how you ski.
