I just got my M2's in the mail and they came with a warning about the magnets interfering with avalanche transceivers. Anyone know the distance the magnets on the goggles must be to keep the beacon working properly? Is it going to mess up a search for me if I'm buried? Or mess up my search if I'm looking for someone?

Legendary. I got the orange goggles with the orange mirror lenses last year. They look phenom. Fit is uber comfortable. The orange lense is very versatile...need something darker for the brightest days and something lighter for the flattest light, but good for most conditions. Due to no external frame, the visibility rules. No craning your neck to see you front pocket zips or boot buckles. No fogging. Best all around, most comfortable goggles i've ever owned.

i bot this jacket from backcountry and recently received the package. i can't find a hydro pocket or tube port anywhere on this jacket. i also can't find an internal mp3 pocket (as advertised both here at backcountry and on the orage website). goggle pocket and wrist pocket exist as advertised as does the external loop for your radio. the jacket fits well, look awesome and is definitely comforatble/waterproof/breathable. but for this price, i would have expected it to actually contain the features it is advertised to enjoy.

Thanks for that. My only concern is in the tight, bumpy trees on the east coast but i hear the rocker makes these very pivotable in tight spots. anyone tried both the bridge's and the new kung fujas and have a view on the comparison?

I'm an advanced skier, 5'10" 165lbs. Ski the east coast 80% of the time (40 days) with a few trips west and to europe each year (~10-12 days). Really need a one ski quiver as I ski everything from bumps and park to steeps and trees all on variable conditions of east coast ice to utah powder. I currently ski an older version of the bridge in a 168 length. It's fine in tight spots but can't hold the edge on harder snow at high speed. My question is, with ELP rocker, how much shorter will the 178 ski than its advertised length? I suspect the 178 is the right ski for me, but not 100% due to the rocker. (In full disclosure, I LOVE the old bridge with the traditional camber. GREAT all around ski...).
