Anyone know how big this 18oz one is and/or how big the 12oz one is? Talking about the outside size
Coming from a boot that was too big and didn't fit my long low volume foot well, these are awesome. The middle buckle really locks your heel down even when I barely crank it down which is huge. It makes such a difference when you are not worrying about your foot moving around inside your boot. I chose this boot because it was recommended for my foot by a bootfitter in SLC. If you are serious about skiing I highly recommend you see a boot fitter. It is amazing how much a difference it can make. Anyways, the stiffness of the boot so far have been good for me, although the ~5 days I have on them so far were very cold so we will see how they feel when it warms up a bit. The nice thing is with the three piece design you can swap out the tongue if desired. Time will tell how they hold up, but so far I really like these boots.
these things are awesome. for the price, they certainly can't be beat. I had one pair and loved them so much I bought a second pair. They are very comfortable and stretchy. I mostly wear them for climbing outside but I also will throw them on when I am just hanging around and doing errands. I will probably buy a third pair because I wear them that much. I am a 31 or 32 waist depending on company and 32 length and the medium fit me pretty good.
anyone know how the hood on this thing is? I have tried the front point shell by BD which is pretty sweet but the hood/ neck area is a little bit tight when zipped all the way.
This jacket seems great. The quality is very nice and the long cut is sweet too. I am 6 feet 170 with around a 41 inch chest and the medium fits great. I am kinda in between sizes (M and L) for other arcteryx jackets but this fits nice in medium. I can't speak to the performance because unfortunately the one I bought came with a small little hole in the back (nighthawk color). It was not available and then one came available all of a sudden in my size so I picked it up. Mysteriously I see this jacket again now available in the same size and color the same day my return was processed....Kinda sketchy. I have never once had a single problem with a backcountry purchase ( I have made far too many) but this was kinda disappointing. Luckily I was able to return it.
do these fit more loosely than the stinger bib? I am 6 feet 170 and the medium stinger bib just does not fit well. length is good but it way too tight in the mid section. I think a large may be too big. I was wondering if anyone knows how these bibs fit in comparison
I am trying to decide between the hood or no hood. Definitely plan to use it under my shell for skiing which is where the hood could be annoying. But for other things where I use it as an outer layer (belaying mostly and/or hiking) the hood may be nice. Is the hood annoying under a coat or is it not too bad?
These shoes are great. They are comfortable out of the box and they do not stretch very much so the fits stays the same. I am a size 13 and I got 12.5 because they were on sale and that was the only size. I don't see a need to go any smaller. They are snug but not too painful. I could probably go down to a 12 if I had to but I don't think I would want to. Performance wise I really like them, they are not super stiff so they have a lot of feel for the rock which I like. They are not aggressively downturned and I have climbed some steep stuff and they do great.
currently on the old volkl bridges the 09, which is cambered unlike the new model. I am looking at these potentially. Live and ski mostly east coast with a trip or two out west. I am 6 foot about 175 ski trees a lot. Thinking the 188 is prob a little big for what I wanna be doing. I do like to go reasonably fast but I like the ski trees like I said and pop of random stuff on the sides of trails and all that... Anyone have any input on sizing on these?
would something like this be a bit much for an east coaster? I make a trip or two out west but I live and ski in the east. I have a pair of volkl bridges that are a few years old which are great and I am keeping but was looking to possibly get something a little bit bigger. These seem pretty sweet but idk if it reasonable or just wishful thinking.
how do these new mantras compare to the bridges? I've got a pair of bridges that are a few years old (they seem to pretty much have stayed the same over the years) and I am looking at a new pair of skis pretty soon. I was thinking something wider than the bridges and I will still be keeping those as well. I was looking at the bacons but I just noticed these and the new design seems pretty nice. Mostly ski northeast with occasional trip out west.
I have the green sol x which looks badass. I love it for blue bird days, never had an issue. I also have the red sensor which I like, but I will be getting the blue sensor for low light days. Usually, the red sensor is okay but it can be a little bit too dark and hard to see definition on very cloudy stormy days which is just damn scary when you can't tell what's coming. I tried my friends blue sensor and it definitely provides a little bit better definition.. The red sensor is good when it is cloudy but here and there the sun pokes through.
Nice sweater but it seems to run big.. Had to return mine and they didn't have a medium in the one I got so I can't say how it fit.
These shoes are great and I am really bummed they do not make them any more. Definitely going to get mine resoled. I don't climb ridiculous over hang roofs on the reg so I got these after having the shamans. This are still perfectly fine for the steeps but some people may complain? I got my street shoe size and they fit great now. Was a little tight at first but I think sizing up 1 to 1.5 sizes as some people said is ridiculous. They are leather and will stretch some.
For 100 bucks and change in the outlet this is an absolute steal. This thing is super light and packs very small. It is great to stash in your climbing/hiking bag. Keeps you totally dry and breathes well from what I can tell.
Got this thing for 20% off and I am more than happy. It is hugeeee. I use two carabiners and some nylon webbing and it works great. I also made a bug net. It is very comfortable to sleep in while camping or to just hang out in.
And I love it. I bought it for going away on weekends to make sure I had enough room but I honestly mostly use it for one day or two day climbing trips which it is great for. While you can certainly use a smaller bag (around 40 liters?) for all your climbing gear I like this because when we are moving around at the crag I can just throw it all in and it easily fits and I don't have to carefully pack it to move ten minutes away. If it is under pack, I just tighten up the straps and the bag is so light it's no issue. I have yet to find a situation where I did not have enough room. I can easily fit a sleeping bag, my hammock, climbing rope and all climbing gear with plenty of room to spare.
Took a few belays to get use to (more so taking on and off not actually belaying) and now it is just like any other biner to me. Don't have to worry about cross loading which is just one less thing to worry about. Sweeeeet.
