This is a great item! It is perfect for hiking or skinning in the late winter/early spring. Keeps you dry and comfortable in a variety of weather. It is even water proof to a point. The only drawbacks are that it is cut a little close (really long sleeves and tight, short waist for my pretty average frame), and it is not very comfy as a base layer as advertised by Mountain Hardwear. Definitely worth the money though, in my opinion. Order a size bigger than you normally wear, in my opinion.

This ski is a lot of fun in the deep backcountry pow. Considering its width, it is also on the light side which is great for touring. However, the top sheet material is very easily damaged. I have only skied them 15 days and there are multiple gouges through the top sheet, with one starting to delaminate at the tip already. Hopefully they hold up for more than one season.

A slope meter is a very important tool for the backcountry skier. Amazing how easy it is to mis-judge the slope angle. This is the gold standard in slopemeters, and it also has a conversion chart on the back to measure slope angle on topo maps. Also serves as a good base scraper in a pinch!
