Hi, I demoed the 172 and liked it alot, but I'm kind of curious about how the 165 would ski. I'm 5'6" 165 lbs intermediate i guess, or non aggressive adv skiing in the NE. I'm thinking the 165 will be more nimble and not give up too much stability and float, or will that size not do the ski justice?

No worries. I had the same concern and was leaning toward the 166, because I came of a 165 Sultan I would only make the jump to the 170's for a twin. I am not a strong off piste skier either, but the 173 gave me such float and stability that it opened up alot of terrain for me. If you plan on venturing of the trail you will like the added length. Maybe check with epicski, You will be amazed with the ski.

I am 70kg, 164cm skiing the N.Eastern US and CA,I find the 173 definately skis short on piste. In my opinion, at your weight you could go with the 180. The added length will provide more stability in crud and off piste. they are extremely easy to use, and inspire alot of confidence.

Hey Paul, I have not worn the pants skiing yet, but I think I can answer your questions.
I would say the fit is regular, I'm 5'5" 165lbs and the MED fits awesome,lots of room but not baggy,of course they're a tad long.The thinsulate is perfect, maybe even on the thin side, I'm curious about what temp I can take them down to. The gaiters are snug and have rubberized inner hems. I guess only the seems are GORE taped, I have no experience with SPYLON, but for three hundred dollars it has to be at least close to GORETEX. Hope this helps, I think they are worth the money........

Hi, i just received these, and love them, but have a question. In the picture there is a goretex trade mark logo on the side of the left knee, and my pants have no logo there. It is not a big deal, just curious? Thanks Rich C.
