I bought this "jacket" last winter and really like it. I consider it more of of a sweater and use it under a Gore Tex shell for really cold days. The DWR Finnish has done well in showers and wet snow on the coast of Maine. For the worst days, I wear several layers of Merino or a light wool sweater under it, then a shell over. I am 6"3' and 180lbs and wear a large which fits well. Probably not a good fit for bulkier builds as I find it snug when layering. It will shed some down over time; don't be too uptight about it, all down clothing does. Overall, I highly recommend this jacket if you are lean and want a versatile sweater that can be a jacket too.

Hi, I have been skiing the original Scarpa Terminators since the first year they came out. In the past. I have. Skied both alpine and Nordic with quite a bit of backcountry Colorado skiing. Now I live in Maine and ski Sugarloaf, etc and a lot less backcountry. I have new BD Havocs with 03 bindings that I am very happy with. I am an all mtn skier though not as aggressive as I used to be. I would like a boot that can still do a hut trip but gives plenty of power for the hard and steep conditions. I was looking at the Scarpa T2. Not sure what size to get. I have 11.5 street shoe and have been in the old shell size 10/11. I think that translates to 27.5-28. I ski with thin socks and typically don't crank them down too tight as I like my feet to stay warm.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thx,
Whit
