These are great bars! I had it for the first time a couple of weeks ago while on a ski trip. My brother and I both had the bar for lunch and didn't need to stop skiing for a break. They are pretty sweet, more like a candy bar, but they are packed with protein.
I got this off of SAC the other day, it was a great deal, but I think I'm sending it back. I loved the quality and the color, with the different color in the hood.
I have the Cloudveil RPK shell and I like to wear it with a down layer underneath, the Marmot Ama Dablam Down. Unfortunately, the Inversion Jacket didn't give me the same freedom of movement I was seeking to replace. It was a very light jacket, but a lot longer than I had expected and the arms were made for a body builder. I don't like when my insulating layers are too big. I also found that the quilted look is more faltering than the horizontal seems.
Hurricane proof rain jacket. I camped in this jacket during a hurricane and it stayed dry the whole time. My only complaint is the stretchy part on the cuffs, my shirt underneath ended up with wet cuffs. The fit is great, it comes right below my hips. Great big hood, it should work well for ski season too.
Very comfortable socks. Lately most of the socks that have any cushion seem to be too thick. These socks are both thin and supportive. I love the blue.
Can this pack fit a sleeping bag?
This is an amazing jacket. It fits very well and doesn't give me the football player look that Arcteryx jackets give me. The pockets inside and out are great, with lots of place to store things. I wouldn't really consider it a soft shell, I would put it in the technical shell category. The only issue I noticed was the hood isn't helmet compatible, which is weird for a jacket recommended for skiing.
I would recommend the XS.
I wear a 7.5 as well and I got the 7s because they tend to stretch out a bit.
They are out of stock.
This is a great shovel. I thought that I would be suffering because I went for the metal over the lexan one but I'm not. It fits perfectly in my Ortovox pack.
I wear a large in POC and medium in Giro.
My POC Skull X came with a little piece of that strong velcro. This holds my POC goggles on well and also my Scott goggles. I haven't had them fall off yet, I actually have a hard time getting them off.
This is my third helmet, all of them have been larges. The size chart is quite accurate, I would start by measuring your head.
I wear a size large helmet and this hat fits great. I love the style. The ear flaps keep the wind out of my ears. I don't think the blue is quite as bright as it looks in this picture.
