I tested the the Cham 87's, Volkl Mantra's, Head Rev 90's and the Cham 97's this year and ended up buying the 87's. They are listed as an intermediate ski on Backcountry but don't let that put you off, I'm an ex ski instructor and still young enough to be pushing hard and really enjoy these ski's. I mostly ski East Coast conditions. They carve well and are the best ski in moguls and crud that I've skied on for years. The tip and tail combination really works. I'm 6'3" and 198pounds and ski 178cm. A great ski that you can throw around in any conditions and have fun on.

I'm 6'3" medium build and the large fits perfectly. This is my first Smartwool piece of clothing and it's become my new favourite top. It's light but a lot warmer than it's lack of bulk would suggest. it's not skin tight like thermal layering but it's also not loose like a jacket. You could wear it with nothing underneath but I usually wear it with a cotton t-shirt underneath. Very versatile, I use it as an everyday top but I'll also use it as a layer under a ski jacket on cold days. You could also use it as a running top on really cold days or for cross-country skiing. I bought the blue and it looks great. I'm also going to buy the dark lime.
