Zed's Bio

I live in Montana and spend a lot of time in the mountains between recreation and work. I'm hard on gear and often brutally honest about it.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

While there really is no standard for flex across the ski industry in my experience (25+ skiing, 10 racing, 7 race coach) these are as close to a stiff alpine feeling boot while still having the lightweight feel and maneuverability of a touring boot. You will want to play with the amount of forward lean that you set the boot to -- initially it is set up very upright which is great for walking/skinning etc but not forward enough for aggressive skiing. Just loosen the cuff and make 1 easy run making relaxed turns and then tighten the boots to that approximate forward lean (don't choose a powder day to do this). The overall fit of the last was in my opinion a bit wide; however, as with many boots this can be overcome with a custom liner. I would highly recommend that if you do get the Quadrant you consider purchasing Intuition custom liners through your local shop -- warmer and better fit which is key when you may spend 10+ hrs in the the boots (or sleep in them which I have done). Overall an excellent boot.

Fit: True to size

The Revelstoke jacket (like all of Eider's jackets) has all the bells and whistles for comfort and performance. The Defender and Primaloft materials seem to be the perfect blend for riding in the mountains -- keeps you warm and dry but without the crunchy restricting feel of other fabrics. Not to mention that the colors and design are unique and look pretty badass.

Fit: True to size

Eider is using a number of cutting edge fabric combinations especially when it comes to the Gore-Tex Pro and Defender materials. If you need to stay dry and warm these will get the job done. I would note that sizing runs slim which is great for fit and/or lanky individuals but you may want to go up 1 full size vs. "American" sizing depending on height and weight. ex 6'1" slim 175lb male = XL pant
