how do these ski compared to the previous orange version? i felt that the orange ones just wanted to fly, which was fun, but i also want something for the trees. would this fit the bill for a quiver of 1? not sure if i will do tele or dynafit bindings, but would like to have the option of doing either (or both). thanks.

just under 5'10 and around 180 (I know, hit the treadmill fatty) and am wondering what size to get. Have the Mentor in M which is a nice techincal fit and doubt that this would ever fit underneath, well maybe but it would loose a lot of loft. Should i get a M or L to fit over everything for those times when I am standing around freezing?

just got a pair but w/o the manual. can anybody share a link where i can get the manual. my main concern is the lateral DIN release. i've figured out how to set the vertical but not quite sure how to set the lateral. i realize that the hash marks represent the DIN settings (5-10) but i don't know what to line up in relation to them to set the appropriate DIN. Help please?

thanks for the advice. i guess sometimes i worry if 181 will be too much ski for me because apparently it will be more like a 185. ever used this ski to harvest corn?

5'10" 175-180 in my skivies, looking to mainly do bc with these for a year in WA, then for a few in ID/UT, coming from a snowboarding(7 years prior to tele)/tele backgrouond (past 3 years), haven't had my heel locked in a ski for 10 years, 181 the right length? i know it will be great in powder but how will the coomback handle the spring/summer corn we have in WA?

So I've had these boots for a little while now, and loved them until yesterday. I used them to climb Mt. Hood twice, Mt. Adams once, and then took them up Mt. Rainier this weekend. Going up they were great and we made great time, but coming down my toes began to hurt. By the time we got to Muir they were hurting pretty bad, and by the time we got to Paradise they were killing. I had blisters galore over several toes and some discoloration below my big toenails. I've never had any issue with them until yesterday and don't know what to do next. I am normally a sz 10, went with the 10.5's. I have noticed a little bit of heel lift when going up, but not much at all and it doesn't rub enough to cuase blisters. Any idea what I can try to make these work for me? I don't want to have to go through that again, and I don't want to be stuck with an expensive pair of boots that kill me on the way down. Thanks all.

so i am new to skiing, and decided to give tele skiing a try. i ended up getting the verdicts and at times felt ok on them, but a lot of times felt like i was getting my butt kicked. what's a better beginner tele ski for somebody of intermediate abilities? thanks.

1 5

My wife got it for me as a Christmas gift and I wore it over the next few days until I decided it was time to wash it. Knowing that it may shrink, I washed it on cold-cold and then let it hang and air-dry. I have experience with shirts shrinking, but normally they shrink uniformally. This thing shrunk all weird, the left side now hangs much longer than the right, shrunk way more than expected. I have two backcountry.com shirts and both got put in the same load and treated the same way, the other one is still great, maybe it was just a quality control issue. I will talk to customer service about it, unless they are reading this and can just coment here to let me know, to see if they will swap out the shirt for me since I really did like it and want some good quality Goat Gear.

I have been wanting bibbed pants for quite some time and decided to go with these. I just got them and found that I can't lift my leg as high without resistance as I could in my Arc'terys pants that are also a medium. Does anybody else feel that their movement is a little restricted or do I just need a different size?

I am debating between getting this and the Ortovox 3+. I have only ever used a BCA Tracker and really liked that interface. I don't have any experience with ortovox, but like the multi-burial capability of the 3+. If my memory serves me right it seems that the Tracker 2 has a longer range, not sure by how much though. Looking for advice on which I should go with. Thanks.
