Worth Every Penny
5 5

I've had mulitple editions of the G3's and these Pomoca's really stand out. The G3's are great, for the price. They really are. But, these Pomoca's are worth every penny, if you can spare it.
They are light and the do glide. I'm not sure about the previous reviewer. Maybe there are skins that have a lot more glide than these, and I just dont' have the experience. But, I would question their climbing abilities, then.

There seems to be a tiny bit less traction climbing, than the g3 alpinist. But, just a small amount and it's worth the trade off for the glide.

I also prefer the glue on these. I can rip them off my skis, which is so awesome. It's harder on colder days, but still doable.

Tried and True
5 5

These have been great in the backcountry, but I have tested these hard in the resort, a few times this season. I was nervous, especially going fast. But, I've gotten over my fear because they are great. They have supported me in every situation.

I have yet to take any big crashes or falls, so can't speak to that. But, I'm not worried. This is a solid product.

Love at First Sight
4 5

Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: medium

So, I just got to demo this jacket, but I did love it completely. It has everything you want. Pit Zips, pass pocket, and breathes well. I get hot easily, so it's important to me that it breathes.

The fit is also important to me. This is a regular fit. It's closer to a tradition ski jacket than an oversized snowboard jacket, without being to short and restrictive. So, it's pretty much perfect, unless you want an oversized jacket.

I am definitely a medium and that was the right size with this jacket. I also got the pants in medium, which we don't currently have on the site. I reeeeally liked the fit of the pants. The were flattering while still moving well.

So Nice and Warm!

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 140 lbs
Size Purchased: small

I love everything about it. It's the perfect amount of warm. I've used it on cold days and didn't overheat, which I tend to do.

I have to size up in Mammut's pants, but I sized down in the jacket. Go figure! I'm more a shmedium though, so I really could do either size. I went with this small in this, since it's insulated and I didn't want to to be too bulky.

Most flattering pant
5 5

Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 140 lbs
Size Purchased: 8

The quality with Mammut is never a question for me. Same with the fit and this pant is no exception. It fit really well, you just have to get a much bigger size than you are used to, in US sizing. I'm a shmedium. I'm a size 4 in most pants and usually am a medium in ski pants.

The 8 was the right size for me in these and it fit me really well. It's my favorite pant so far. The velcro adjustments on the waist are pretty hidden, so make sure you find those. I thought the waist might be too tight, until I found and adjusted those. Now, they are perfect!

Worth every penny.
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

My news skis have just been sitting around for 6 months, while I waited for a rock-free day. I still hit one rock, but for the most part, Nebo's virgin voyage was during perfect conditions to fully test it out.

I have these mounted with the Dynafit Rotation 10, which is DIN rated. So, I took these into the resort, in order to get them in every condition imaginable, before I trust myself in the backcountry. I didn't need to do that, in the end, as they make me a better skier. But, I was nervous about a new, very light ski.

My biggest thrill with these? It took my legs 4 hours to fatigue, skiing powder the whole time. Normally, half a run of powder and I have to stop and rest my legs. That fact alone makes it worth the high price point, for me. I was unstoppable.

I'm wildly impressed with how they built this ski. It's floats like a dream. I held back on the crud and groomers at first, but I quickly learned to trust my new BFF and pushed this ski harder with every run. I rode the full mountain, this ski didn't let me down once.

There's absolutely no chatter on the groomed runs and I was in complete control on the crud and in the trees. They weren't super fast on the groomers, for some reason. But, it's possible I was being more timid than I realize. Either way, the skis are so light that I could just skate and pick up speed. I blew past everyone in front of me on the flats, once I started skating. I almost felt like I was running, because they are super light and I could keep a fast cadence. I have never skated so much at a resort. It felt pretty good and I think I'm addicted to it, actually. I could honestly do anything with this ski, except take it to the park. They are too fancy.

So yeah, these are for the backcountry but I am going to have a hard time not taking them to resort every chance I get, especially on powder days.

They are a confident and proud creation. I'm so happy I gambled on this new model. Jackpot!

UPDATE:

I'm on two weeks of skiing the Nebo and am completely sold. Even though this ski is not meant for the resort, I just keep taking it there. It took me a day to adjust to it on the hard pack and crud, but now I don't even notice a different and charge through everything. I love them!!

All good in the hood
4 5

Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 175 lbs
Size Purchased: medium

Everything is spot on with this sweet jacket. The hubby only demoed it a few times, so not sure how it will hold up, and thus the 4 stars.

But, it was golden during the a very wet and miserable storm we endured all day.

The fit is spot on, get your normal size. It is a relaxed fit though, so keep that in mind, if you are searching for a specific look.

Loves them
4 5

Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 175 lbs
Size Purchased: medium

My hubby demoed these and now I have to buy them. He loves them a lot! The size was smaller than normal. He's a 32x30 pant and the mediums were a bit snug in the hips. They worked fine and he was comfortable, but upon close inspection, the fit was a tiny bit small.

Outside of that, it's everything you want. We don't know how they will last though, so that's why there are only 4 stars.

Peromance + Comfort
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The hubby loves stiff boots, cause he goes fast like a bat out of heck. However, he finds most boots very painful. But, not these! He loved them out of the box, which is nothing shy of a miracle.

130 flex is responsive, without killing the calves. He has a wider fore-foot, but the 99 last is somehow okay for him. So, I think the pre-molded liners must have been thought out to perfection.

The powder was heavy and slow things down, this day. So, he didn't get a chance to catch much air. But, I feel confident the boots will handle that just and drops just fine, as well.

These boots do fit in a normal alpine binding, without having to change the soles for backcountry skiing. So, yet another feature that makes these an easy sell. Get the Switch Bindings and you have a one quiver set up for resort, side and backcountry.

So, now I have to figure how to afford these, because he's got his heart set on them. Hahah
