Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Im 6' 165 lbs. The 186 is about right. Had em out 2 days backcountry. 2 Mile flat approach, logged 4 or 5 thousand vertical. They tour excellent. Dynafit tlt5 boot is a nice match up. My first turns on this ski were in trees with a sumerged windslab. So I got worked a bit. Chipped out the topsheet pretty bad cause Im a tad sloppy. They dont seem that durable if you have control issues. Had em out today for a resort powder day with the tlt boots again. Had a great time. When I blew through coldsmoke down to suncrust they held well. No chatter. Im coming from coombacks so Im adding 30mm waist. The floatyness tends to translate into speed which took a little getting used to when cruising trees. Generally thrumbs up on the v8 achievement. My only beef would be that I prefer less camber when skiing backcountry powder. Maybe not quite as mellow as I'd like. but the camber adds versatility. I do expect that I'll be digging them in general because long days in the backcountry are what I like best. They might be lighter than my buddy's dps setup.

Ive had this tent for 12 months and have used it for family backpacking in the Beartooths, Swan Range, the Montana Rocky Mountain front and on a smith river float trip. No problems. The fly covers adequately and the tent sets up quick and easy. Fits our family of 2 adults and 2 kids fine. We've had some heavy hail storms, wind and downpour and high country exposure. We've stayed dry. IN good weather its basically a mosquito net canopy with good star gazing. This tent doesnt make an issue out of itself. Its a classic.
