Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a PNW skier, 5-7, 160 lbs. I have these mounted with Dynafit Radicals and have toured them about 10 days so far. No resort riding days.

After trying a couple different skis (Surface New Life, Line Opus) for touring the past few years, I got these for this season, and i'm completely sold. They are a perfect flex for my size, pretty stiff but not overwhelmingly so. The camber underfoot is great for traction on the uphill, and on icy ski outs to the car. In good snow, though, they are very stable and fun to ski. i have sen them off some moderate pillows and drops, and they are easy to stomp. They are also very light for how big they are, noticeably lighter than either the Lines or the Surfaces.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I'm 5-8, 160, got a medium, which is perfect size.

As far as the jacket goes, I love it, but it has its limitations. It's really light and not extremely thick, so it works great as a layer. It also sheds a little bit of water and has lots of pockets, so it can work as an outer layer most of the time. However, as a result of being so thin, its not *that* warm for a down jacket. It works great for being on the trail, and will keep you warm down to about 20 if you're just standing around. However, if you're going to do a lot of mountaineering or winter camping, where you're going to be spending a lot of time in camp or otherwise not moving in very cold temps, or you just generally run cold, I would go with something heavier.

These goggles are pretty solid, but for the price I don't think they are as good as some competitors. They're pretty comfortable, but not perfect. The optics are really good, really cuts glare and no distortion. However, the frame is pretty small, so peripheral vision is limited. They are like Oakleys in most of these respects. If you have smallish face they will be fine, but for the money I would rather have Anon Realms or VZ Feenoms.

For one thing, this is technically not a helmet. It is not as strong or as well padded as a Leedom or Smith helmet. This one is definitely a lot better than nothing, but especially if you're a parent, that might be a concern for you. My other slight beef with this helmet is that its very deep, so i ended up having to add some padding on the top to make it comfortable. On the positive side, this helmet is light, warm, and looks great. It also has a much better goggle clip than my previous helmet, which is really nice. I lost a pair of Oakleys off the other helmet, so that's important to me.
