Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After skinning for years on older Black Diamond nylon skins, I got a pair of these to skin on some pretty wide skis. Overall, I feel like they glide just as well and the weight difference is so small its hard to tell the difference. What makes me love them is how compact they are inside your backpack compared to the nylon skins. I love skiing with a smaller pack, and these let me put more in/cinch down my pack a lot more. Totally comparable everywhere else.

This is not the harness to climb multi-pitch trad routes with, where taking whippers and hanging off the wall for hours is in store. I got this primarily as a winter mountaineering harness. Something small and light that would fit in my BC pack and will be enough to get the job done on short winter rappels.

My hands stay really warm in winter, especially if I'm out touring or hiking around the resort. I always keep a warm pair of mittens/gloves for the coldest days, but I actually ended up wearing these gloves most often. They are very light, breathe relatively well, and constrict and stretch in all the right places.

I skied these bindings really hard this winter. I have two of these bindings mounted, one on 184 Moment Deathwishes (112 under foot) and one on 180 Icelantic Gypseys. I switched from Scarpa T-Races to the Scarpa TX-Comps. I feel like it is a pretty comperable setup in terms of strength and stiffness, but is a full 2 lbs lighter! I toured, booted and skied inbounds a lot with both. The quasi step-in system is nice, but the big points for me are having a brake and the lateral release. Both these features work well, and I've only had a ski come off when I wanted it to. My only gripes are that there is not a full free pivot in the touring mode, and the base plate is plastic and can crack/chip.

Totally sold, not sure I will ever go back to 75mm again. It can be expensive to get into, but worth it for the NTN.

I was stoked as soon as I pulled out this shirt and put it on. It has a killer look to it, and is light and comfortable. Not the warmest flannel for the middle of winter, but well on the nicer side of button downs.

I actually really like these boots a lot. They are pretty different in look and design than most other snow boots. Although they are not as insulated to keep your keep warm when it's really cold out, with warm socks on they have only kept my feet dry and comfertable.

This is a sweet ski if you are looking for something that is pretty light, has a forgiving design and is decently wide under foot. They tour well and are tons of fun in powder. 5'9" 160 lbs and the 186 is definitely the ski for me.
