Do they come with a hard case?
The do it all short.
The unique thing about this jacket is that it is a bit longer in the back, making for a fit that won't reveal bare skin when your moving or leaning forward. Furthermore, the heat retention is incredible, even among down jackets. I wear this jacket night skiing with a single baselayer and i'm good. I also wear this jacket during class unnecessarily because it is so gosh darn cozy.
I got these pants in 2007, and have worn them almost exclusively for 3 seasons of 30+ days. The corduroy looks awesome and functions better. It has held up to abuse that has shredded the bottom of all other pants I have ever owned.
I have this boot with the NTN binding, and can not speak highly enough for both of them. This boot is everything I could want, what stands out most to me however is the unbelievably customizable fit provided by the intuition liner, and the AT (in my case Dynafit) compatibility. As for flex and responsiveness, I ride this boot with the stiffest spring (black) that you can get for the NTN binding, and together this is a match made in heaven. This is especially notable given the fact that such a stiff spring could easily overpower a softer boot, resulting in lack of a clean flex from the binding, and extra loose flex from the boot.
I have long been searching for the setup that would allow me to dial my switch tele, as it is the only aspect of alpine that I miss having left behind. Well here it is! These bindings plus the black stiff springs= sheer perfection and total control. The flex is so smooth, and so solid. This is the New Telemark Norm, period.
I can honestly say that I have never been cold in this bag. The coldest night I've used it for was a February overnight on Monarch Pass, couldn't have been happier wearing only a single base layer. The Primaloft is great, because unlike down it does not pack out in the least. Mine is just as plush as the day that I bought it. It is also thick enough to provide a little extra cushion!
Backcountry.Com does it again. I've had them all, The North Face, Patagonia, Marmot. This guy fits the best, wicks the best, simply cannot be compared to by the competition. Even the build quality stands out. All the others have begun to fade and pill, this one stills looks new after a year. However! be wary when washing this, a hot dryer may melt the fabric.
I simply can't ski without this belt. It's held up phenomenally after a year, showing NO signs of wear after 100+ days in all sorts of conditions.
This is my go to bottle for hiking trips and other outdoor pursuits. The mouth of the bottle a great new design, much smoother and less crevices to store bacteria. Great size, just wish it fit in typical cup-holders.
This is the number one glove in my arsenal. Anatomically correct, very durable, uniquely designed and uniquely functional. Goes great with the backcountry glove liner when bought one size up. Otherwise a snug fit.
These are the warmest, best fitting, fastest drying, most functional liners i have ever owned. The only thing to keep in mind is their thickness, they are thick enough that they may compromise the fit of an already tight glove
Super Easy Wax, nothing goes on faster than this, just as effective as a spray or rub on.
This is a really great ski sock. Very cushy, very well-made. Definitely more interesting than your run of the mill sock. You won't be dissapointed with this one.
