Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've now put a number of days on this rope and I can say it will hold up. So far I've got no complaints in the durability department. My only concern is the diameter. As the rope breaks in it increases in thickness to where it is getting close to the max to feed through my atc. If I did it again I would go with the Mammut Eternity Dry. My climbing partner has the Eternity and it holds up very nearly as well but feeds noticeably better and is lighter wieght.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been waiting to write a review until I did a full day+ tour with these. Ive now put several short tours and a 9 hour day in on these boots. I've upgraded the liner to intuition pro tongues, just my personal preference.

Performance: Not as light as tlt-6 but still great performance going up with better downhill. I'm a large skier (5'11" 205lbs) and these give me enough stiffness to enjoy the down. I've tried the TLT-6 and they were not enough for me.

Fit: A little wider than the tlt-6 but still a tight heel fit. These have the best ankle/heel hold of any boot I've skied recently. My only wish would be a slightly higher cuff height.

Durability: I've had to do some bootpacking in these, and while the vibram outsole is holding up great (even when I had to hike 1.5 mi in on dirt/rock), the toe lugs are giving me concern for how soft the plastic is. I've had to toe kick some steps in and the toe lugs have noticeable divots in them. My only concern right now for durability is damage to the toe lugs.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second Dark Grey Oakley lens, the first being on my Canopys which I use as my primary goggle. I have used HI yellow, persimmon, Pink Iridium, Jade Iridium, Black Iridium and clear. While the Jade Iridium may be a slightly better all-purpose lens (all though a little dark for low light), the Dark Grey provides a similar range of use. The Dark Grey also has improved use in low light vs jade iridium. And for the cost, who can complain? On very sunny late season days, it may be necessary to switch to sunglasses or a lens with lower VLT (Visible Light Transmission).
