Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are incredibly powerful skis. I'm 6'0", ~175-180 lbs, and ski on the 188. The 188 is actually 110mm underfoot, FYI. This ski wants to carve big turns down whatever terrain you put in front of it. That being said, with the fairly lightweight construction from the carbon + the "poppy" wood core, it does pretty darn well in fresh snow too. With a good camber underfoot, and at 188 cm, this ski isn't specifically designed for cruising through tight trees, but honestly did surprisingly well in moguls once I figured out the rocker. Put it on anything from an open groomer, a big bowl of fresh, or day-old crud and you can power through it. You'll want stiff boots for this ski, because it can absorb a lot of power.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 175 lbs
Size Purchased: 32/Reg

I bought these for the primary intended use of ski touring and ski mountaineering in the Sierra and Rockies. So far, I've been overwhelmingly happy with these pants.

Waterproof: The Gore-Tex Pro does its job here. The Sierra is known for its wet storms, and this kind of waterproof layer is a must-have if you're going to be out in those kind of conditions.

Durable: Here in the Sierra, our snow season has been a bit slow to start, which means there's been a lot of boot packing, bushwhacking, and scrambling to get to snow line. These have held up really well so far after climbing up/over rocks and through lots of underbrush leading up to the snow.

Fitted: These fit really nicely. They're not baggy at all--quite the opposite--but maintain an excellent range of motion. Each leg has two velcro straps on the calf (mid calf and upper calf) that help cinch the pant leg around your boot and leg to keep the elements out as well as keep the fabric on your legs from rubbing against each other.

Feature rich: A few things jump out. The 3/4 length leg zippers are great for ventilation while ascending. Reinforced fabric on the inside of your lower legs is helpful in case your boots or crampons graze your legs. Suspenders are the way to go. The fly is a 2-way zipper that opens from top or bottom (didn't see this being very helpful at first, but it's actually great). Boot gaiters have lots of room for adjustment depending on the circumference of the boot you're wearing.

Suggested improvements: It's hard to think of much I'd change about this pant. If anything, I'd ask for an additional pocket or two on the top or side of the thigh. The pants only have the two primary pockets, and it'd be nice to have a tiny bit more storage space for odds and ends.

10/10 would recommend this pant. Enjoy!
