This thing is bomber. It is reasonably light (for a 4 season tent), and it is super sturdy. The poles are really light, I was surprised at how fragile they seemed, but they seem tough. There's plenty of the things, so they should hold up. The fly fabric is rediculous, it's got this sort of silicone coating that makes it completely waterproof, and tough as hell. Overall I'm impressed.
First and foremost, these things look awesome. The lenses are killer, and they dont fog. There have been some complaints about these with regards to fogging, but I have had no issues. However, I did notice that the plastic in the frame seemed kinda cheap. I have had no durability issues, but still, made in china...
Are these compatible with bd quadrants, and other vibram soled tech compatible boots?
A lot of people trash these bindings for being made out of plastic. Well, my AT rig fell off the top of my car at 50 mph, and the bindings weren't even scratched. They are also awesome on the downhill, and even though they weigh more than other tech bindings you don't notice because you don't lift your skis when you tour.
