my ski boot is a dalbello krypton kross 275. should i size up to the 11-12 size or will the 9-10 be big enough to fill the boot and minimize trimming?

I've had these goggles for two seasons now and have now used them with only a hat, with a k2 helmet that was too big itself for a s, and now a smith vario i that ive used once on memorial day this year at jay. they have always fit whatever i was wearing very well, as long as theyre not getting knocked down by a loose helmet! these fit/look well without a helmet and have a bigger frame in addition to hinges on the straps, perfect for helmet-wear. they dont let snow in, either. nor do they fog (unless youre breathing right on them). freezing rain sucks with them, but everything sucks when theres freezing rain. super happy with them, especially because i got them on sale for $48 and free two day shipping. my very first backcountry.com purchase, now my go-to gear store!
will the fact that i have the elliptical shaped crossbars make a difference with this mounting system?
Will this fit a 2013 subaru forester?
Lookin at this, the hiker pro, and the pocket microfilters. The descriptions say that the hiker pro filters out more "categories" of harmful items than the Vario (by far, I might add), and more than the pocket microfilter as well. This cant be right... Shouldn't the model that costs four times as much as this be able to filter out EVERYTHING, and at the very least, shouldn't this Vario be able to filter out at least CLOSE to as much as the hiker pro? Whats the point of a water filter that doesnt protect you from everything that the worlds water can contain?
how reliable is the speed-lock mechanism as far as withstanding collapse under heavy strain or over long periods of strain?
awesome ski! only taken it out a few days (got them at my local shop in early Jan this year) but theyve proven their worth. im 5'10" and 155 lbs, got the 184's with a rossi axial 140 binding on factory line. they float and turn in powder, and do incredibly well in double-black-diamond-and-up VT woods. they carve well on groomers and CHARGE through chop (compared to my rossi scimitars haha). they feel good hitting bigger drops. as for ice, you should get comfortable with your power position.
moment really did what they said they did, i love the dirty mustache. the only reason im whining is because i paid full price in january when i couldve saved a couple hundred if i waited til now. but thats what i get for buying a ski at full price. DONT MAKE MY MISTAKE. BUY THIS SKI TODAY
i mounted my 184's on the factory line and love them. they rip at high speed and i can hop around tight VT trees like a dream.
Does this really do anything for my mpg's? And where does thule take their dimension measurements from? Will a 74" box fit 185 cm skis or would I need to move up a couple inches?
Can someone tell me more about the vestibules on this tent? Will boots, big packs (60-80L), rain gear all fit in them without blocking use of the door?
gets warm, spreads wax, cools off, repeats. good iron. well worth the money, no problems here at all.
this wax works well. yea it scrapes a little hard. dont be a wuss about it. if u can do 5 pull ups, or 20 pushups, or lift/carry 50 pounds in your arms, u can get this stuff off. im much happier scraping a few more times with this stuff than i would be paying four times as much for something that scrapes like butter. and think about it, if it scrapes off harder then itll last on ur stix that much longer too.
best product for the money. 5 stars if its at this $4 sale price, 4 stars for full price.
Got this bag in december 2012 and used it up to my local hill a few times along with a few short backcountry trips to test the ski-carry system. Went to Mt. Paine in Northfield this past weekend and turned the backpack into an airbag...after pushin thru a couple small trees and sliding across a downed tree, it ended up lookin like it does in the pic i put up. I think what did this was the 3 snowshoes i had jammed tight in the exterior buckles put a disproportionate amount of tension on that stitch...either way I'm gonna be getting this same bag once they get my color back in stock. #1 reason being that despite such a hard fall, this pack somehow managed to keep my mini glass bubbler from seeing ANY damage... i swear i left it in there accidentally tho, would you believe i forgot it was in there? haha....
Anyways, the bag does excellent. Easy to throw my skis on it and makes them disappear for the hike. Its got enough room for gloves, extra socks, a hat, yowie, an extra top layer (thin sweatshirt or smaller), along with a couple beers and sandwiches for lunch. Could definitely do the avy setup with probe specific pockets, sweet shovel carry system, and fits my 2L bladder in the pouch pretty well.
Tough bag, easy to put on and adjust the chest, waist, and shoulder straps without dickin around too much. Insulated sleeve is cool, but i havent tested it in extreme cold yet. And the location of the goggle pocket is nice and discrete, practically doesnt exist if ur wearing it. And best of all it looks cool layin in the backseat of the Subi and on my back, anywhere my back finds itself.
Oh, and the pocket made to house the top loop for the diagonal ski carry system makes an EXCELLENT stash pocket for glass <6-7". And im like 85% certain they made this with Scent-Lok technology...just puttin it out there...
