Michael M.'s Bio

I love fast groomers with zero gravity floater headwalls. I love cruising top speed and getting airborn for major distance. I love tucking Aspen mountain gondola door to gondola door. I do it under 4 minutes everytime! And I am being safe not skiing recklessly. Way too old for bumps and moguls but speed is the bomb!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had to have many boot fitters work on these boots before they could handle my high volume, wide Barney Rubble feet. Had good custom not boxed orthopedic footbed (Thanks Jim Linsey, Boottech, Aspen Highlands). Also Salomon had to blow out shell to the max on bootstretcher at Whistler. Now I have an all day comfortable boot. Boot does not have cant adjustment

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: large

I just purchased them for skiing and haven't worn them execept to try them on. They seem a bit long for me where the crotch hits the bottom of my jewel sack and the knee sockets aren't
in place. Yes I am short. Hopefully it will work out in the wash and shrink to fit better. I have slack in the legs and really not sure how comfortable they will be. The Spyder Captain 3/4 fit one hell of a lot better in this size

Fit: True to size

Jacket is warm to 0 degrees with turtleneck and one thin layer. Cuffs have a bit too much insulation and end up moist by end of day. I am overall happy with this coat which replace my Kjus Formula which was far superior but worn out.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I bought the medium and they were too tight! I returned and got the large and they were tight and too long. It's a shame cause they match my Spyder Pinnacle jacket. The cuff is a struggle to go over your jacket too. I am sending them back for either the Black Diamond or Hestra. These next gloves are my backup pair cause I am real happy with the Black Diamond guide glove which is my favorite pair.

Great boot in the beginning. Had to punch them out to accommodate my wide foot. They had the stiffness I needed. At the end the flex selector wouldn't stay in hard flex 130 and put it in 120 flex. The 120 flex makes this put feel like shit. I think if I use this boot this year I am going to fill the selector with petex to keep the selector in the hard setting. I would like to try out the Salomon x3 rs which can accommadate my foot better and doesn't have that stupid selector switch. What a stupid idea Nordica? You see, I am not looking at a Nordica this year. You lost another customer
