The helmet is lightweight and quite comfortable, but I did not realize how over-vented it was until the first day I wore it skiing. One of the things I like about helmets is that they keep your head and ears toasty warm and dry. I wore it on a fairly mild PNW skiing day (25 degrees, light snow, no wind) and my head froze off. The vents are not closable like every other helmet I have owned.Wearing this helmet on a cold day in the Rockies would possibly be fatal. Unlesss there is an easy solution I will need to find aa different helmet.

I purchased these crampons for sking the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt, and used them on several steep icy traversing climbs. They worked quite well. I do not use the heal lifters on the bindings very much anyway, because it feels more secure to get my heal down on the ski and the crampons dug in in difficult conditions, but I am kind of an old timer. I did not notice any other binding/ crampon combos that did not have the same heal lifter / crampon bite conflict. I put them in a bag in my pack for carrying, didn't seem to be much of a problem.
