Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I predominately use this light for commuting, so far. My sooner than later plan is to add another more powerful light for my handlebars, then use this one on my helmet for night mountain bike riding.

This light is set to be the first choice to use on my commute, and a perfect compliment to something like the Pro 1800 for ripping singletrack at night.

At night you rarely worry about the uphill traffic, because you'd see their light. And you get desensitized to the eye looking back at you after the first few times.

USB charging is awesome too! I can use my USB backup battery to top off the battery, when I often forget to recharge after using.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used one of these that a friend had on a 4 day car camping trip.

It was great to have such an easy to use speaker, and we never had to worry about power or charging, we just left it outside on the table the whole time. Both of us even were even able to charge our phones as needed, and had power to spare!

I only wish it could handle the rain or some whitewater on paddling trips!

I have found the Zealot 192 to be an awesome ski for conditions that aren't full-on untracked all day long.

The burliness of this ski stands out like a sore thumb. They love to go fast through any terrain; whether it be fresh powder, tracked out powder, or mogul fields on flat light/ low visibility days. These skis do what you tell them to do, and don't get bounced around in the process.

The early rise tip helps out a lot when popping from one turn to the next, and they turn great regardless of terrain or trees.

I wouldn't rule these out as a touring ski because its a definite quiver killer if you need it for skiing everything.

These have some nice stiff tails, but a little softer in the front half of the ski makes it a little more forgiving. This is a ski you can use to rip turns through chopped up chunder and it will feel like you are skiing fresh corduroy. As long as you can drive it, it will do what you want it to and make crud feel like fresh cord.

I was fortunate to start learning on HammerHead's, then tried 01's. 02's, Hardwire's, and G3's. The Hammerhead blows them all out of the water.

Its nice to have a binding that you can adjust without having to buy different cartridges. These have a very consistent flex and feel.

These get 5 stars as a lift accessed binding. I have toured in these a few different times.

Its not ideal to move the cable guides between easy skinning settings then back to a descent setting, but it does work.

If you like Hammerheads and want a touring binding, you will love the Axl!

This new rockered/ early rise profile means these Gotamas should be even better than the originals. I skied a 190 non rockered most of last season, this year I am skiing the 194 in this model. The difference is astounding, definitely the tail wagging the dog on these bad boys. Not a fun ski

I mounted these with HammerHead telemark bindings boot center at running center of the ski, like all my other skis.

They were powerful in the chopped up 1 day old stuff at Alta yesterday. You have to stay on them, and if you do they do what you want them to.

These boots are my first pair of Scarpas and they fit a comfy snug after molding the liners. I could barely walk in them without molding the liners.

I love the feel and smooth but burly flex these have. It took a day to get use to, but I love these compared to my old Garmont Synerg 3 buckle boot. These can push big skis and active bindings. I have only skied these with HammerHeads.

Great on the uphill, walk mode is a little clunky sounding but smooth in operation. I wouldn't trade it in for a quieter boot.
