The binding length can be modified slightly, though it probably isn't recommended, by adjusting the forward pressure. The forward pressure adjustment is controlled by the two screws at the back of the heal (the screws are inside the black cylinders supporting the heal).
When people change boot sizes, they generally go down a size for a more aggressive fit. Before mounting the bindings, extend the forward pressure screws. This way, when you get a new boot you can tighten them down. There isn't much play in the binding. I was able to reduce a boot size without remounting (26.5 to 25.5). It won't adjust further anymore but they ski great. When adjusting bindings yourself, be careful not to over tighten the forward pressure so you don't affect the elastic travel of the binding. Doing so affect how the binding releases.
Overall, awesome binding and my first choice for the resort. Worst case you can generally remount a pair of skis twice without any issues. Remounting should have no affect on your decision to purchase the binding. You will be thrilled with the performance, which more than makes up for any inconvenience. BUY THIS BINDING.
I wear a 9 climbing shoe in evolv so I ordered the 9. Shoes are comfortable, durable, light weight, and look great. Good for an approach shoe or basic climbing when wandering off trail
Fits like a glove. I wear a medium, I ordered a medium, and I am satisfied.
Got the Tiract Lock. Quick, easy, sturdy. Couldn't ask for more.
Good construction. Great price. Hands have been toastie on the slopes.
Liked everything about the pack until I tried to fit my avalanche safety gear into it. This is a BD bag but my BD Deploy 3 shovel and BCA Probe wouldn't fit into the pocket specifically designed to hold avy gear. I even tried taking the handle out of the shovel and still couldn't get the pocket to zip shut. I definitely wanted an Avalung on my pack since the backcountry has been so sketchy this year, but this bag is going back.
My search for the perfect ski backpack has finally come to an end. After going through an Osprey Kode 22 (not big enough), BD Bandit Avalung (definitely not big enough), and a BD Covert Avalung (couldn't even fit a deploy 3 shovel) I settled on the Kode 30. I am 5'9" 180lbs and the M fits great. Has room for all my avy gear and extra layers. Back zipper access is great, helmet carry is handy when skinning, and insulated hydration sleeve keeps my drink from freezing. Aframe carry is plenty large enough for my fat skis (122 underfoot). Make it easy on yourself and buy this bag!
Pack seems very durable and is quite large (~15"x9"x4"). Would comfortably fit any size crampon I am sure. However there is no daisy chain on it... I own two two Osprey packs but can't use this on my Kode 30 for ski mountaineering because the attachment system is not compatible. Bottome line - Pack probably works great, but it is being returned.
Have been impressed with Patagonia. This shirt does not disappoint. I ordered a M because I wear a M. Very Satisfied.
Only complaint is that it sits a bit high on the head. Otherwise, comfortable, lightweight, and breathes well. Pretty happy with this purchase.
Great Price. Great Product. I'm not usually a fan of Black Diamond, but for the money look no further.
I'm 5'9" 180lbs and the Medium fits like a glove. Long jacket and pow skirt prevent snow from getting in. Gore Tex keeps me bone dry. Jacket is great for layering, light weight, and well constructed. Patagonia didn't disappoint with this one.
Paired these with a new pair of Lange Super Blasters. First pair of really thin socks. Have definitely helped during the break in period. Keep my feet warm and allow me to feel the boot. Won't be going back to a padded sock.
Changed from a Head boot to this one, but even with a wide foot the boot is comfortable. Got a custom foot bed and haven't had to modify the shell. I wear a size 9.5 shoe and was fitted for a 25.5 boot. 120 flex gives me incredible control on my new Moment PB&J's. Walking mode is nice for Apres Ski and walking to the car. Highly recommended.
Great Socks. Toes are warm, padding in all the right places, seem durable. Seamless design is great.
Haven't had a chance to bust it out but very impressed with construction and look. Should last for years. Can't wait to put it to use.
Happy with the shirt. Proud to show off the goat!
Have skied 10 days on these so far. Excellent hold, release when needed. Only complaint is the plastic heal piece which gets scoured when using a pole to release the binding. I am trying to figure out a way to protect the binding, but otherwise I am very satisfied.
Great gloves. No bells and whistles. Warm on cold days, cool on warm days. Durable, good looking. Look no further.
I'm 5'9" 180lbs and I ordered the 188s. Awesome skis! So solid through the crud, poppy in the park, and bullets in the the powder. Living in the Wasatch we get every kind of conditions, these along with with my 4Frnt Renegade Pow Skis provide the quiver I need for everyday.
