Had to send it back. Tried a medium in the store and it was too tight, so I ordered a large and it was too baggy. While I like their products, I've had this problem with Patagonia before... I guess I'm a medium and a half
Sensor or RC36 lens for snowing, flat light conditions?
Are replacement lenses available for turbo fan model?
5'-11", 180, older advanced california skier who doesn't get to ski powder that often till last year's dumps. Will be first powder ski, need versatility, powder, groomers, afternoon chop. Looking to improve my powder skiing. No backcountry, cliffs, tricks. Thinking JJ's, 185 with Jesters. My everyday skis are 174 Blizzards Magnum 8.7. Any thoughts, recommendations?
...only have used them once so far, snowing heavy and they fogged up pretty bad. They were recommended for flat light conditions and OTG use. I typically only use goggles for nasty conditions, I prefer sunglasses. I'll give them another try and if they don't perform, I'll return them.
Won't have a chance to really use it until this next ski season. But I'm thinking it's going to be perfect for what i need. Also it does have a small waist belt, contrary to the specs
Returned the pack, too many loose straps. Size about right, but felt like I had crap hanging all over the place. Exchanged it for the Black Diamond "Bandit". Much cleaner, but won't have a chance to really use until next ski season. Got it for lift accessed skiing on those days when the weather's changing... to stash an extra layer, googles, hat, energy bars, and not much else.
This is my second "Thunder Down" (Blue and Red). Lightweight, warm, but runs a little small. Most of my TNF stuff is medium, but had to get this in a large. Taking it skiing next weekend, so I'll see how it performs in the snow.
Didn't care for the fit, little too baggy for me.
