Great product
4 5

I’ve been using the Shift for about a month now, with a good balance of touring and resort days.

At first, I had to give the transition process a bit of a practice run in my living room to get used to the moving parts. Turns out it’s pretty easy and operating the change on snow hasn’t been nearly as long as I first anticipted it to be. The pins open easily and my Lange boots just glide in there now. The front piece is overall super easy to work with gloves on, which is a must when transitioning in wind-swept areas.

The back piece works about just as well, but I’m coming out if a hut trip with tons of snow and I’ve experienced some issues with ice building up under the heel piece, resulting in the breaks releasing mid-skintrack. I’m curious if anyone has had this issue as well? It’s the only reason I give the Shift a 4 star review.

They work really well with the Lange Freetour.

Not going to lie, this one gets smelly pretty fast, being 100% synthetic. You therefore have to wash it following every use. However, after using and washing it for almost two years now, I can testify about the quality of fabrication of this garment. It is still in mint state, with no pilling and none of the seams coming appart. I've also used it climbing, doing yoga, running, etc. It's a well rounded piece that everyone should own.

I've had mine for about two months now and have taken it from the Bay Area to Truckee to Park City to the high desert of Arizona. I wear it over a t-shirt at all time for basic next to skin comfort but the wool itself isn't too rough.

It's a classic, and you can wear this wether you're chopping wood, heading to the surf break or the office (unless you work at a bank, in which case I'm sorry for ya!).
