The Patagonia web belt has been my go-to for a few years - jeans, shorts, ski pants. I definitely prefer this belt for ski pants, though. It is elastic and gives, rather than being more rigid and non-stretchy. Lightweight. The clasp is flat and works great when you're wearing a pack over it. There's not much to this belt. It's basic, but does the job with ski pants very well.

I love this water bottle and use it primary for resort skiing when I don't want to wear a pack. They fit nicely in the internal goggle pocket of my shell, and are comfortable to ski with since they're non-rigid. With the valve cap, I don't have to unscrew anything or remove gloves when I want a drink. Never had any leaking, and these are easy to clean. They take awhile to dry out, though. Great for minimalist traveling - they roll up VERY compact. Highly recommended. I use them all the time.

These shorts are high quality and very well designed. The pocket layout is great - my keys, wallet, snack and phone always feel secure, easily accessible, yet still out-of-the-way when I'm active. Material is super durable and dries fairly quickly. I found sizing to be true. I wear a 30" waist in the vast majority of clothing, and the 30" in these shorts fits well. There is a good amount of room in the crotch which makes the shorts feel light and non constricting. These are the best designed, most comfortable shorts I've owned. I will definitely purchase again. It's probably one of the clothing pieces I've been the most happy with.

Sizing question...
5'6", 140#, 41yo athletic/experienced skier. Confident on all terrain. Currently ski Kastle BMX98s and 118s in 168 length. Spend most of my ski time in Rockies (Alberta, BC, Utah, Montana) and prefer to be off-piste in the trees, bumps and on steeper open bowls. With young kids I'm now skiing switch, and hitting features in the park and on groomers more often. I've also been enjoying jumping off things a lot more than in the past. Love the Kastles, but looking to add a more nimble, playful ski. Thinking either 178 or 184 in the SFB. Any thoughts?
