Helmet is light weight, comfortable and very high performance overall without looking all tech'd out. Its got the additional coverage that you need for an all-mountain/trail helmet. Best fitting helmet I've had.

This is great looking helmet, that is lightweight and comfortable. My favorite quality however, is how well it breaths. You can open up the vents on warmer days or when doing short hikes and get the ventilation you need, or if its cold, keep em battened down.

Feather light in my eyes, these made easy work out of a long slog from the LCC road to the top of White Baldy... see video below. I was very impressed with the skis downhill performance too, I had them pretty full out. They have quite a bit of sidecut and camber so you can really lay them over.

A lightweight backcountry powder ski that has a stiff flex, tip rocker, and the perfect dimensions for hiking and skiing quality lines. I skied the MTN Lab ski and boot for a solid half season last year and I couldn't be happier with the set up. I will sometimes hit an air but mostly just ski on the aggressive side (as conditions permit), and the 184 was always plenty of ski for me.

This boot was a game changer for me. I didn't need to use a heavy alpine boot to get the performance I was looking for, and therefore I could hike quickly and do fullday tours without needing to be in great shape... Once I baked the liner the fit was great for my foot, which is average to slightly narrow I'd say.

This is one of my favorite skis, it has surprised me how good it is. I would pick this ski before the q105 for an all mountain ski, as its light weight but also pretty stiff, and very consistent/stable.

Rocker tip and flat tail (slight early rise), makes this an easy rider but very comfortable if hammered, and good in ALL conditions.

Fit: True to size

I went with the tortoise/brown, and pretty stoked on the deal. Full size frame for great coverage, but still very light. I like that there is no rubber on the arms which can be too grabby sometimes. They stay in place nicely thanks to the rubberized bridge.

Here's a full sandwich construction ski with 2 sheets of metal from Salomon. One of the burliest skis the brand has ever produced. The added beef helps the Q Lab plow through anything you can throw at it. I skied the 190 around 30 days last year so I got to know it pretty well. Rocker tip and flat tail made it stable and maneuverable . Full sidewall keeps it damp. 145 / 109 / 134 mm = float and sidecut = pow and hardpack performance. The Qlab definitely replaced the Q115 as my daily driver last year at Alta/Bird.

I've used this camera a bunch all last winter and like how easy it is use. Having the screen is great because you can check out the footage, plus it makes it easier to change any settings. I like that this camera does not require an additional case for waterproofing. The time lapse setting is a fun feature to play around with.
