I'm 5'8 & 162.. The 185s ROCK! DO NOT go any shorter! the 185s kill it not only in the deep, crud and yes mach'n groomers...but are easily piloted through the trees as well. You will absolutely want a longer ski with this design. I had the same concerns when I bought my pair, but am so glad I went with my gut. When you look at the actual contact length of the JJs, you will quickly realize that you can (and should) ski this in the large size. Don't fear what sounds like a huge ski...when they're on the snow it's a whole different story.

IMO the JJs did to skiing what Apple did to technology. GAME CHANGER!

Enjoy!

Looking to upgrade from my camelback... generally a good overall pack, but when the res is filled 70% or greater it rounds out and does not sit properly on my back. Add some food and light layers and the pack torches my lower back on any ride over 3 hrs.

I like the way this Platypus looks in terms of overall ergo support and weight distribution. I can't seem to find one locally so I can check it out in person, but wanted to see if any other folks out there can chime in on this pack.

Does it hold a full bladder comfortably? What about overall stability? Some packs tend to "jump up" when riding fast, technical downhill...anyone put this Platypus to the test to see if it sits snug and quiet? How about extra storage (layers, food, tools et)? The Origin 22 looks too big for biking (IMO), but it's hard to tell if the 9.0 can do it all... in comfort?

Thanks!

Anyone use this yet (preferably with a 3G iPhone)? Curious to hear about the audio quality for the calls and if the mic works well enough for someone on the other end to hear...

Also, can someone confirm that the hardwired music source is automatically muted/paused when a call comes in?

Lastly, will this work on the Giro MX10 Audio helmet?

Thanks!

Hi, Not sure how this set actually clamps? I have 05 Volkl Gotamas (183) that measure 130-105-122. The center makes the cut for the 110 max on this vice, but what about the ends? Any info/suggestions would be great.Thanks!

Almost bought this shoe from BC, but was weary given the other reviews here that mentioned the narrow cut. My local shop happened to have them (and they were on sale), so I was able to try them on. THEY RUN NARROW. That being said, they still fit well, just have to up-size. I wear a 10.5 (wide) in almost every shoe, and just went to the 11s in this shoe. They fit very well, eat up the terrain and work like a submarine when running through streams. VERY happy with these! (side note: got the Garmin Forerunner 305 too. WOW, amazing gadget for getting all the info on your runs).
