I have a variety of crampons depending on the activity but when I'm ice cragging or climbing non snow mixed lines this is the one I grab, Vail, Loch Vale, Ouray, Camp Bird. The front point is accompanied by to small side points which give you stability when you need a little more grip but don't empair on the front points ability to grab at the smallest flakes or cracks when dry toolings. Also the frame is super rigid and I haven't had any issues with bending or flexing no matter how hard I crank on them. The only reason it doesn't go to the Alpine is the small heel and no bailing plates.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great layering piece. I use it almost every time I am in the mountains.

It works great as an outer piece in the winter while backcountry skiing or ice climbing and if the temperatures dip too low or the wind picks up I just toss on a light waterproof shell. In the summer I really enjoy it in the morning for those cold alpine starts when rock climbing and then later in the day while hanging out on belay or climbing in the shade. I never worry about tearing it as the stretch material is super durable, but still glides well under my outer layers.

These are awesome pants. I like the relaxed fit which gives me a great range of motion without being super baggy; I don't know if it's the fabric or the preshaped knees but either way it is great. Also the outer fabric, waterproof zips and thigh vents make it so that I can really button it up when it's blowing sideways or vent on warm days or the boot packs. I have been very happy with these and highly suggest them.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have put this jacket through everything and it has never failed me! I have owned a multitude of ski jackets from too many companies to list and am just blown away by the attention to detail Eider puts into their gear.

The fully taped seams keep me completely waterproof when I'm skiing wet N.W. snow especially in the spring and the powder skirt makes them a bombproof system for deep powder days. I love the wrist gaiters because once they are in my gloves nothing is getting in, did I mention the bombproof system this jacket creates yet! Also with the insulation thickness being spread in different weights throughout the jacket it has made it super versatile for me. When I'm on the chair on a freezing day the thicker backpanel keeps me warm but when I'm heading across the Arm on Shuksan or into the chutes at Alta the lighter weight in the front mixed with the pit zips keep me plenty cool so I don't get wet and cold. The other detail I really want to point out is the unrestricted movement this jacket allows me without that baggy boxy feel you get from some jackets.

This thing is awesome if you play in the snow you need one! Heck even if you are just using it around town it's an awesome jacket.

These pants are awesome. I have never had a pant that fit me so comfortably and insulated so well. The higher back area keeps the snow out whether I'm in waist deep powder, spring mank, or dare I even admit if I fall. Also the texture of the fabric is awesome I wouldn't think that a twill fabric would be this waterproof and breathable but with the Defender 10k mm & 15k g/m rating I have never been happier! I would suggest this pant to any especially if you are a die hard skier who needs a versatile pant, even if it means cold chair lift days, it just can't be beet.
