I'm looking for a day hiking shoe for my GF. Any thoughts on how water resistant they are? And as important, how do they perform on wet rock? We hike a lot of slippery Shale and nasty roots in the Catskills, and after our last adventure I don't think anyone is going to believe her "I fell off my bike" and "I slipped off a boulder" stuff. Yes, my gf is awesome!

I still like these ski's, but I am a little less into them as a 1 ski quiver. I am thinking about getting some super fat skis for the pow and skied on some true ice coast catskills stuff of the like that i haven't seen for the 90s and would have prefered bomber lange WC's and a slalom ski to carve it up.

Barons - Great 85 percent of the time. Pow, crud, windblown ice/crust. For waist deep hero pow or an east coast hockey rink, choose something else (or stay inside).

Hope that helps.

i got this packaged with the BS-50 mini hand pump. Well, after the hand pump bent two of my pins you can probably guess what the BS stood for. The tool is convenient. I keep it in my bag with me everywhere i go, but it's pretty difficult to get enough torque to adjust my seat because it's *that* small. Is that a complaint?

these are amazingly stiff and yet super comfortable. Going uphill is easy, and downhill even better. They keep me warm, my feet are happy, and they can drive my ski. A better all around experience than the performance boots like the Lange 120s, without sacrificing much. Plus, if you have a narrow foot they will fit you like a glove. or boot. whatever. I couldn't be happier.

I wish that I bought the biggest size though, the 20x36 isn't quite enough to get that nice warm you up kind of wrap around, but it is certainly enough to dry you off.

dry's pretty quick. everyone needs one. It's a towel, let's not get too crazy here.
