Re: The Norpine Thread

those green Karhus are beautiful! what a great find. Until now I wasn't even sure what "norpine" was....so it's the old-school tele skis - skinny and flat camber. btw I kept those Kazamas in my BEDROOM for a few years....they were in the attic of Strand's ski shop in Worcester, Mass. for t...

Re: NNN-BC versus Pins: Just the facts

I love passionate rants, this is a good place for them, I'm not sure I completely understand the gist of this one but I will agree that the bar-ripping-out issue is overplayed in internet forums. That is possible but has to be extremely rare. I think the threat of the glued boot sole coming unglued ...

Re: The Finest Nordic Norm (NN) 75mm Backcountry Boots

>>does this correspond to your experience? the sizing is a little off - my Zenith are marked 12.5 UK and 46.5. UK 12.5 should be 13.5 American. I usually take size 13 American or size 47. Usually size 13.5 American would be size 48 so things are a bit off. I would try to order using the European siz...

Re: The Finest Nordic Norm (NN) 75mm Backcountry Boots

http://andrewfootwear.com/prodotti/en/t ... index.html what's up with this? an old version of their website? When you ask them to ship boots to the USA they say no - probably due to customs/tax hassles I'm guessing. Maybe the shop in Quebec could order them, that would work for me. I was just in the...

Re: NNN-BC versus Pins: Just the facts

>>>Apart from the XCD/light telemark market, I suspect there's a bigger NNN-BC market for people who want maximum stability on more gentle cross-country tours. yes, you're describing my experience. I was psyched when NNNBC first came out. It blew away what I was using before in terms of stability an...

Re: The Finest Nordic Norm (NN) 75mm Backcountry Boots

Wow, this a huge relief to see the Andrew Shoes boots fully stocked in all sizes! I will say a prayer that Andrew continues to make them for retailers but I'm very concerned that they were removed from the Andrew website. It's absolutely worth paying to import them, the Andrew Zenith I got via Austr...

Re: NNN-BC versus Pins: Just the facts

These are heady days for NNNBC backcountry boot people! No doubt. I like the enthusiasm, I'm happy to see all the options. I worry that the few remaining welted boot options will dry up - it must cost 2-3 times as much to make the Crispi Antarctic versus the glued-on NNNBC sole. You need a skilled c...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

I'm OK with some "innovation", these companies that make our gear have to survive & remain profitable. It reminds me of music, for example the first few Soundgarden albums rocked but then they had to do "Black Hole Sun" commercial-sounding stuff for a few albums to make money...

Re: The Finest Nordic Norm (NN) 75mm Backcountry Boots

Crispi Antarctic are similar to Merrell Ultras I had, just a little lighter and softer. Merrell had a very roomy last with wide toe box which was great. Yes, unfortunately at least half of the boots in the 2016 article are no longer made, including all the ones from Andrew. There are several 75mm op...
