I think that it is hard to make a good short that is low profile, non-restrictive, but still gets the job done. I think this is the one. I have taken a couple of falls in them and I have not noticed any discomfort where I might have in the past if I did not have the short. These fit under the short really well. My hood-rat friends have practiced hitting me and it did the job.

I was not expecting the quality construction that I got at this price point, but I love it. The pit zips with powder guards, a pretty strong powder belt, and lots of pockets make this a great choice. I chose this as my park/jibbing jacket as a substitute for my gore-tex pro shell. Great Job for the money.

I ride the Nordica Patrons and the Armada TST and I think that I am going to prefer these over the Patrons. These lighter, stiffer, and hold an edge better than most any ski that I have skied. The non-rockered tails rail and make it quick and nimble. I skied 8" of fresh snow at Snowbird last friday on these and pieced a cliff session and I stuck everything with ease and more confidence than on my Patrons. Again I think that it is the traditional non-rockered tails that makes it easy. These rip on the groomers as well. I am going to throw a pair of MFD alltimes on them and make this my all around bomber ski.

I am 6'2" 180lbs I rode the Krypton II Moro all last season at the Bird. Dalbello makes the best boots on the market in my opinion. The boots are so poppy in pow. I am planning on buying the Kyrpton Pros this season because of the ratchet buckle. I never could get the buckle tight enough for my liking. I had difficulty forcing my shins into the front of the boot because of it. The ratchet is a good idea for snowboards, but you loose customization without a power strap and micro top buckle.

Also, you might consider the Pro if you are stomping big landings. The Moro only comes with one stiff footboard. The Pro comes with an anti-shock and a stiff footboard. I did found that the anti-shock (I bought it separately for the Moro) was not as responsive on hardpack, but it got the job done.
