I've been searching long and hard for a replacement for my '09 Dynastar Legend Pro Rider. I think I've found it. This ski skis great in powder, yet busts through crud and handles surprisingly well on hard pack. It gets a bit dicey on ice, but manages well especially since its not made for those conditions. I'm impressed by how light they are with Diamir Fritschi Pro Freeride bindings. Skinning is a breeze and my hip flexors are thanking me. If there really is such a thing as a one ski quiver, this ski comes as close to the mark as any I have seen. Great job BD!

I am 5'9" and 180 lbs with 30" inseam and 32" waist. I bought a Medium for backcountry skiing in Utah and I love them. The first day I tried them out at Snowbird and put them through the ringer on the rocks at The Cirque. They had not one scratch at the end of the day. They are a bit baggy but not overly so, but allow plenty of movement. I like the easy access pockets and detachable suspenders. I wear a light Smart Wool base layer under them and I was plenty comfortable in single digit weather. Yes they are pricey, but I think they'll go out of style before they wear out. In this sport, quality and dependability are everything and these hit the mark in my opinion. Hope this helps!!

The old lung is a bit larger and more cumbersome; whereas the II is more compact and a bit more kind to your wallet. Never had to use either in a burial, but the breathing mechanics seem very similar, ie same idea, just smaller and more refined..
