Re: New BCXC considering Fischer Traverse 78 / S 88 / S 98

While posture is important to all skiers, it’s all the more important to a man with broad shoulders, we can’t have that mass taking our center to a place it doesn’t belong. This. This is so good. This might need to become my signature on this site! ........ Master Eater of Fish- Your entire post ↑ ...

Re: Suggestions for some soft shell pants?

I bought the current Outdoor Research Trailbreaker pant for everyday Nordic ski touring- I am now on my second season with them. https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/mens-trailbreaker-ii-pants-271416 They are fantastic- I wear one-piece merino longjohns underneath and usually ski with a flannel shirt ...

Re: Suggestions for some soft shell pants?

I like Tierra.Ace pants. They have waterproof cuffs, knees and ass, but everywhere else they are really nice and thick(ish) soft shell fabric. Cuffs can be extended to fit over large ski boots, but they fit pretty well even when non-extended. The only thing that could be better is the fit in the cr...

Re: Suggestions for some soft shell pants?

I really like the Revolution Race GPX Pro pants, similar style to Fjallraven/Lundhags but at a more reasonable price. A mix of polycotton and soft shell material, they are super hard wearing, breathable and a really nice cut for skiing/hiking. They only sell direct through the website, but the sizi...

Re: Why are so many touring skis so damn stiff? (downhill)

I think part of it is people are forcing this issue that 100mm waisted skis are "mid-fat" and thus expecting 50/50 application on hard groomed surfaces, and the skis are then flexed for that. Which is ridiculous, because an 85mm ski, with the same flex, is just so much better on groomed surface. It...

Re: The new Rottefella XPLORE OFFTRACK Binding system

Well I am mystified by the spring-pin design...
I don't see how those pins won't FREEZE...
It must work- if they have been tested in the Norwegian mountains- it must work... :?:

Re: Is this legit?

Pretty sure there was a military version of both the original Vector BC and the current Ultravector BC?

Re: Is this legit?

Surely these are either the original Vector BC or the current Ultravector BC?

The price is great- when you consider the price of the current ski + SB binding- but, man- the seller must be making a killing on these (I bet you the auction price was darn cheap!)

I'm considering it...
