These are my favorite socks I've had, although I have only had 2 pairs.
They're the thinnest you can go without sacrificing much if any warmth, so you get a really intimate feel with your boot (seriously - makes a difference).
The other major upside is the gradual compression, which is GREAT for my swollen ankle that I sprained playing football 8 years back - keeps that garbage in check.
Also, gotta love that blue!
These pants are great, in both form and function. Guess they aren't in stock anymore, but if they come back up and you're looking for a quality pant that will keep you dry and looking snazzy, I'd grab em.
1. Magnetic cargo pockets - velcro is out, make way for the magnets.
2. Ski pass clear sleeve under cargo pocket flap - convenient, and you feel cooler than the other side of your pillow flipping it up to get it scanned.
4. funky lining, which shows through when de-panting or through the open thigh vents.
5. Thigh/grundle vents - a must have for hot days.
6. Recco avalanche safety thingy - Hey, you never know. I sure as hell feel safer with it though.
I would think the Bridges would give you a bit more versatility as they are a bit narrower than the fat gotamas. I love my bridges, and they excel in every condition. however, i have heard of people saying you can still tear around in gotamas, so they might be worth looking into.
These things ski like a wet dream.
The width was shocking to look at at first, but i can assure you they carve as well as almost anything. I skied em in old crappy snow, crust, and some ice, and they held up great. they obviously will soar in powder as well.
skiing twins is fun as hell too. played around in the park with these guys but i'm not a serious freestyler so can't comment much there.
Great f***ing skis
