Bombproof bases and Stiff flex
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Nomad 115 have been my pick for true freeride skis. The flex is very progressive and playful but also stiff enough to run out any chunderfield of death cookies and baby heads without turning into a noodle. Ive been competing in the FWQ on these and not only do they perform but the high quality construction allows you to get away with more rock smacks and rips than 90% of the other freeride skis could possibly survive. I would definitely recommend buying these if you plan on charging in every condition.

2nd pair in one season failed.

Read the other review. Just get a different pair of bindings. I couldn't repair these in the field on a ski tour yesterday and was forced to boot out.

Major problem: The aluminum rails have hardly any durability where the rivets were put in as seen in this photo. Honestly it would probably be a safe bet to just go with a tech binding set up and a solid DH setup.
At Crested Butte last year my friend on the CBMR ski patrol said all the patrollers had the bindings fail on them back in 2014.

2nd Failure In One Season

These Guardians/Trackers use aluminum rails which are prone to breaking right on the pins. There is not enough structural integrity or company integrity to make a sound touring binding. Also they shortened there warranty period and no longer have a U.S. phone number so its easy to get short handed by Atomic/Salomon now.

2nd broken binding in one season.

Again DO NOT GET THESE.
Yesterday I was 2hrs into a ski tour requiring a bootpack up 1500ft bushwacking before reaching the snow line. Within 10minutes of dropping into the valley I put my skis into tour mode and the heal piece fell off. I was forced to hike out on a different route. Do not trust these bindings for any serious tours. If it breaks it is going to be very hard to repair in the field and could screw you over.

I have been using Atomic Tracker 16/Salomon Guardian 16 bindings for the last 3 seasons with both companies logos on them. They have been fantastic for those who want performance over light weight specs. Unfortunately I bought another pair for some new skis this season and within 70 days on the slope I put them into tour mode to begin a recent tour and my left heel fell off; clean snap on the aluminum rails. The major flaw that Salomon/Atomic needs to fix is replacing the aluminum chassis underfoot with something more durable in the winter environment. They should have more forethought on material choice. For a so called freeride binding I expect to be able to do nose butters in powder, inverts and cliff stomps without the binding failing. Aluminum rails are not suitable for a sport where the ski is going to be flexing constantly and also in cold temps. I have also had other shredders have the same problem with this binding snapping in half.
Until they fix this problem I would not recommend this binding until they update the construction of the frame underfoot.

Great for high elevation/icefield runnin

Fit: True to size

These super dark sunglasses are just what you need for being in the Juneau Ice Field. Before having these sunglasses I was getting temporary eye damage with the amount of exposure experienced on glaciers, but they solved the problem. With these glasses eye fatigue is a thing of the past. Note, although these would be fantastic for driving through the desert, they are illegal to drive with them on because they are too dark for regulations. Enjoy!

This little floaty is pretty simple but I have a lot more trust in it than duct tape and foam. After purchasing this before some jetskiing I was glad that i had it after my cam was knocked out. It also makes it easier to find the camera if you drop it in the snow with the neon orange back door.
