Boom! Still killing it
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

People have preferences. I have used many different bindings and I prefer Salomon. For me, Salomons do exactly what I expect. They release when they should and I never worry about them pre-releasing when they shouldn't.

What I love about this binding is that among the changes, there are some basic features that stayed the same as the salomon 900 series bindings I have been using for years. Although the heel is now different (same as Guardian) the toe shares the same hole pattern as previous models and functions the same. I feel just as comfortable on this binding and what I expect as I have on all my previous Salomon clamps.

I'm a fatty and also the best skier on the mountain ...so I considered the WTR16 to get more metal. Honestly, the WTR13 is a great binding and after a season, I have no worries about a little less metal compared to the 16.

I threw these on a brand new pair of what is still my favorite pow ski. Love the 130 or hate it ...classic OG pow pow ski.

Note: I traded someone 115mm brakes for a pair of 130mm. This is the only downside to the STH2 WTR's. you can't get every width in both the 13 and 16.

Note 2: The bit about me being the best skier on the mountain may or may not be sarcastic

Cocoon does have a rip-stop version of this silk liner; but, to my knowledge, the rip-stop version is only available in one color which is Tuareg. If it is not Tuareg color and not noted as rip-stop, it is just the standard silk version.

On that note, knowing there was a rip-stop version, I wanted it. I then picked up the standard version because I got a deal. I have had 0 snags or tears after a few years of use. I will have no concerns about buying a non rip-stop version again if my current liner ever dies.

Happened to use my liner again this weekend. It is a great piece of gear that I could have never imagined liking so much. I will now always own a liner. I originally purchased to protect my bag; but, I now love it because it makes my sleeping set-up much more versatile.

We bought a ton because we love it!
5 5

We have several 60 and 70 meter lengths of this rope in both ARC and standard versions. For a more detailed review of this rope, go to the ARC version of this rope and read.

Basically this rope is a bomber workhorse. It wears very well. The elongation is amazing and taking a whipper on this rope is almost a pleasure. The sheath is fantastic.

Buy the rope and be sure to uncoil it properly. It is a bit stiff at first; but, it will soften up.

With all our personal 60 and 70 meter lengths plus our five 200 meter spools ...we have a ton of this rope. We have a ton of THIS rope for a reason ...great rope!

Nice clean duffel
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This was given to me as a gift. I received a size large. It is very roomy.

The duffel is pretty simple. Not much by way of organization ...one main pocket and one side pocket. For me, I'm good with minimal pockets in a duffel. Usually I just want open space. Organization can be implemented by throwing zippered mesh bags inside. Mesh bags are great for organization and can be purchased cheap from big box stores.

Time will tell; but, this bag appears to be well built. The seams, zippers and stitching look great. Being water-resistant allows me to toss it in the back of my truck without care.

The backpack straps are nice for a short haul from car to building; but, the lack or frame and how far the package sits out away from your back (size Large) would make it a bit awkward for long treks. Non the less, these straps are really great for short point to point distances and I prefer them over a traditional single shoulder strap by a mile. Shoulder straps make carrying other items at the same time less awkward. This is probably my favorite feature along with the water-resistance.

Good bag. It's water-resistant and has backpack straps which is cool. On the other hand ...it's just a big water proof duffel with straps. Not one of those pieces of gear that I geek out about - 4 stars.

Fine helmet
4 5

This is a fine helmet. We have owned several adult and child helmets made by Giro for both ski and bike so we knew what to expect when purchasing.

This helmet is fairly light and comfortable. My daughter enjoys wearing it and has never complained about discomfort. The adjustment dial is very easy to use. Depending on whether my daughter has straight hair or braided pig tails, I can easily adjust this helmet while it is on her head.

In the end, I don't think there is anything amazing or terrible about this helmet. It's a good quality helmet with an easy adjustment system. I would have no problem recommending it to friends.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I love these belts and own several. I bought this one for my wife. Note that the black/grey is 1.5; but, the blue/grey is only 1.25". I suspected this when buying and was good with it since it was for the wife. http://www.arcadebelts.com/shop/belts/the-hemingway-s/

Arcade belts always get 5 stars!
