The new substantially more anatomic last employed by Head is truly amazing.. the instep response, positive canting really help you feel like you're connected to the ski. I've about 20 days on mine, and have added a ZipFit Gara to it for improved performance... http://www.zipfit.com/
Impressed by deuter's engineering here... good fit on a 6' frame (long torso), but why can't people get water delivery right... the water compartment could have a bit of neoprene for compression and stability on the bladder itself... and we just have to find a way to keep the "straw" from freezing in the colder EC... Still my go to, 4 season pack. Ski attachment does work well A/cross.
Really excellent design, helmet adjustment works well. Because of the jawline coverage, this helmet may be a bit harder for a jr. to get on herself. Also the build quality is only "good" as some of the "glued pieces" aren't staying glued. I'd buy it again though
