4 5

These fit like a charm--and I usually have trouble finding a pair that fit--and stay in place.

The lenses change for the light conditions so quickly and easily that I don't even notice. At first I was skeptical but they quickly became my favourite pair.

The only reason they don't get 5 stars is that I'd love to have the same lenses with polarization.

In the end I purchased the 181 Nomad SFT (5’10”, 150 lb]) and have been thoroughly satisfied in their performance in all conditions and slopes (although I painted them because the graphics are way too loud). The extra softness has been just fine: I'm super confident with the skis at high speeds, and the extra pop is lovely in powder.

No, in my estimation the Coomba and Coomback are similarly soft. As jaybruce says, if you want stiff try the hardside or sidestash.

I just skied the SFT 181 for a day and it took everything I threw at it (hard pack, crud, couple of inches on groomers, tight trees, heavy boot top snow, tight turns, GS turns...).

However, I do prefer a little stiffer feel so I'm wondering if the regular Nomad will be just the right ticket or a little too stiff in the deep pow.

Anyone tried both versions and can offer some comparative thoughts?

TIA!

PS- Regardless, I'll be painting over the graphics with matt black before mounting: too much visual stimulation when I'm skinning up for a sunrise or spending a quiet day with nature (resort or b/c).
