Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

These shorts are awesome! Just got a pair for climbing and running. They have a great fit, dry really quickly, and have some nice stretch to them. My favorite feature is the elastic waste band. It has some nice girth to it. It does not seem like it will lose elasticity or strength over time. They fit really nicely under a harness as well. I love the little zipper pocket on the back. Nice spot for a key or some goo when trail running.

I bought a pair of the Magic Carpet skins last season and I like them better than my BD ascensions because they pack smaller. The BD ascensions are much stiffer than the Magic Carpets and don't pack down as small. When I first got the BCA skins they were really sticky but the glue has since broken in. I would rather have to much stick than not enough, especially in the cold. They climb and glide really well and the hardware seems to fit on any shaped ski, including my square tipped Moments.

I really didn't think the Hoe mode was going to make a difference with shoveling but after I used my buddy's Dozer I had to have one. You can move a lot more snow compared to a traditional shovel and its sweet for digging pits. You can sweep/drag the snow away in one motion, which conserves energy and moves snow more effectively.

I have been really happy with my Float 32. It has quite a bit of storage space in the main compartment and has a dedicated avalanche tool compartment. It has enough storage space to carry a lot of gear for a full day. My favorite features are the helmet carry and the lined goggle pocket. I considered the Mammut and the ABS packs as well but in terms of price and weight you really can't beat the Float 32. Also, the cylinder is really easy to refill because it is filled with compressed air. You can get it filled at paintball or scuba shops for about 10 bucks.

I have had great experience with refilling and traveling with my cylinder. Scuba and paintball shops can refill it no problem. The fill port on it is a standard 1/8th inch paintball fill port so scuba shops do need an adaptor but it seems to be a common adaptor and most scuba shops have them. When you go on trips I would definitely plan ahead and make sure you know where you going to get your cylinder refilled, but I have had no issues. BCA has a map on their website where you can search for BCA certified refill centers. You can travel on a plane with it as long as the cylinder head is unscrewed from the cylinder and TSA can see inside it. I have never even been questioned at the airport.
