Love that the top review is from someone that hasn't even skied the binding...

My biggest gripe with the system so far is the range of motion in tour mode, which is considerably less than that of the 01 I was on before. That said, NTN skis down way better than the 01s in terms of lateral control and smoothness of spring engagement. The extra features really are the icing on this cake, not having to bend down to engage a heel throw, not needing to use leashes when at a resort, and releasability are all very nice features to have. Skiing them with Crispi Shivers, which I am also loving.

I've use this bivy for a couple of nights now winter camping in somewhat spring-like conditions. I chose it because it is the closest thing to an OR bivy I had that would be ~20 years old now. Simple, no net or tent-like thing. The one new feature, that it zips into my sleeping bag, is awesome, bivy and bag travel as one unit now. I haven't taken it out in any rainy conditions, but it has kept my bag dry in snow caves and trenches. Some condensation, but not nearly as much as I got with my old bivy.
