These Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter Cubes are so much lighter than my other packing cubes but don't sacrifice the amount you can pack in the cubes. They are great for underwear, shirts, sleepwear - just about anything. The only thing I noticed is that the zipper doesn't go all the way around the cube - probably to save weight. I thought it might be an issue but it really isn't. The fabric isn't see through but it is so lightweight that you can tell what's in the cube without unzipping it. With the increase in baggage fees on the airlines, every ounce you can reduce is helpful. The handles are also great for grabbing the right cube and they are great for keeping thing organized while you're traveling. I'm sold on these!

These aren't the cadillac of tele ski bindings but I learned on them many years ago and am still using them. They work great in the backcountry when you want to climb as well as tele but they aren't as beefy
as the other high tech bindings. I've used them with the old leather boots as well as the Scarpa boots and they served their purpose. I have used them both in the backcountry and at the resort areas with good results. No, they won't perform as well as the more expensive O2s, etc but if you want a less expensive and versatile binding when you're first learning to telemark or if you want a binding that will serve you well in the backcountry (they're much lighter than the other bindings), give these a try. They won't cost you an arm and a leg.

I've tried wool before and couldn't wear it next to my skin or even over a light under layer. Icebreaker clothing is totally different. The fit and the feel is great. It doesn't itch, it doesn't smell and it keeps me both warm and cool. I wore these in Vietnam in both heat and chill and they worked well in either condition. The 260 is a nice weight. Small fits me well at 5'6", 110 lbs. but its not overly tight so could fit someone who weighs more. I have average to long arms and the sleeves are perfect.
