Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have a pair of freeriders from a few seasons back. They've finally beatup enough that it's time to replace them. I bought a new pair and immediately noticed that the new shoe is lower quality than the older pair. The materials & construction is just not as good as before. The older pair has better cushioning, better quality uppers & insoles, better stitching. The only thing that has remained the same is the stealth sole & styling. As far as I'm concerned it's not nearly the same quality that I've come to expect from 5 Ten. It's still a good mtb shoe, but not as good as it used to be. I'd rather they raise the price a bit than sacrifice quality.

Difference is between the women vs mens version? Does anyone know exactly what the difference is between the women vs mens version of the S7? They usually make the womens version softer but seeing as how the S7 is already has quite a soft flex, maybe the men's version might be the better choice??

If you can get this on sale, it's definitely worth the $$. I've tried on others & just couldnt quite get the right fit till I tried this one. Really wanted the Deviant2 but damn it the fit was all wrong. Fits true to size & cushy inner padding makes it an nice comfy fit. The only tweaks I could recommend would be to add more venting & lengthen the front jaw piece to give more breathability. First thing I did was cut off the front bottom chin gasket. I noticed TLD has addressed some of these things in the newer D3's but for the $, I'm more than happy with the D2.

Well almost ;D

Funny how the Katana has gotten overlooked in previous years. I've been rocking the 176's the last couple seasons & it is my go to ski for almost all conditions. It'll do pow & rail on hard snow, now how is that possible? The 2 sheets of metal makes this quite torsionally stiff for a fat ski & the slight rocker makes it float like a dream.

It appears that the Katana is finally come of age & getting the recognition it deserves. A volkl classic.

Great ski for beginners just learning to ski .... NOT!... This is the real deal, a powder ski that kills it under all conditions. Rip with confidence. But that's the key, you gotta be confident in your ski abilities to get the most outta this ski.

If you want the best, look no further. Definitely spendy, but there's no substitute for Arc'teryx quality. Some say they're waterproof, but they're not. These are 100% waterproof & top notch construction/materials. You'll end up going through several pairs of other pants before you realize that these are the ones you should have bought in the first place.
