beng8352's Bio

I grew up in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia and somehow got addicted to skiing on those bunny hills in the process. After experiencing the greatest snow on earth, I decided to move out West for some real mountains after high school.
I studied biology and chemistry in college, but have been utilizing some of my lesser academic skills since graduating, enjoying the freedom to ski and get outside even more now. Skiing holds top priority in the winter, but when the snow stops falling you can find me trying to get the adrenaline pumping some other way. We only have one chance to see this incredible world and experience all it has to offer, so get out there and explore it for yourself!

When it comes to probes, it's tough to figure out which one is the right fit when there are so many options out there. This is one of the longer options but also still very light. The extension mechanism works great and with a flick of the wrist you can go from collapsed to locked and ready to save a friend. Also has laser etched number increments which in my opinion is crucial.... because the probes with printed numbers always eventually rub off.

I got the bright red color in this shirt and love it. Color is dope, style is great, but the best part is the awesome mountain hardwear quality. Definitely higher quality than many similarly styled button downs. Buttons are super nice and the shirt itself seems to be made very well. Only had it a few weeks but I think this will last for years to come.

This shirt has 2 zippered hand pockets I didn't know about until it arrived, and I was pleasantly surprised. good storage for some cash or anything else you don't want getting smashed in your pockets. Fit is fairly true to size. I'm 5'10 160 and a medium fits well. The sleeves are a bit longer than some other button down short sleeve brands but the torso is just right.

unlike the Dukes, these bindings are able to switch from ski to touring mode without removing your boot, which comes in handy on steep faces and deep snow when clipping boots in and out of bindings can be a hassle. Black Diamond has made a number of improvements to these bindings this year the most important being torsional rigidity for improved control. In the touring/alpine binding department i'd go for these or the Marker Dukes.

i got this shirt because i like pocket tees (they always come in handy for those things you dont want getting smashed in your jeans pocket ;) and because i liked the burgundy color shown in the picture. but i got the shirt and the color is waaaaay off from what is shown. its more like a reddish maroon color. just warnin ya if you are buyin in for the color
