rated 3 of 5 stars Not the binding you want if you are an aggressive telemarker. Was a good binding to learn on, if only because it was hard to ski! This was my first telemark binding, and I used it for about half a season, probably 50 days. It was used at the time I bought it. I was impressed that they held up, given that I had heard a lot of horror stories of these breaking.  First off, let's start with the pros: These are super light, super easy to mount and switch out parts as necessary, and they work.  The… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great binding for BC laps and skiing. More intuitive than Dynafits. Love Dynafits too, but these are tad different. I have the Dynafits and the G3 Onyx. Let me say both setups are great. I love my Dynafits for BC days and touring; however if I'm taking some runs and want to push the ski, I would prefer the G3. G3 is a tad heavier but I love the fact you can switch from skin mode to ski mode without releasing toe piece and vice versa. While capable of switching to skin to ski mode via ninja pole… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars A very capable and reliable BC ski binding, while not in the lightweight league of the Dynafit low-tech does have the massive advantage of being able to be swapped between skis.

I now have two set ups — as above for my… Full review

Alpinist High Traction Splitboard Climbing Skins

rated 4 of 5 stars These are great skins. They stick well to the snow whether it be deep powder or a compact, polished skin track. Love the nose and tail clips and also the glue is great. As I said, these are great skins, probably the best I have ever owned. They fit great on my split board, come with an excellent trimming tool which takes off the right amount off skin. The nose and tail clips work great, although the attachment points of the little hands that hold the clip to the edge do look a little flimsy but… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Very strong and nice looking. It sculpts pits really well too. The thing I don't like about it is the pop clip on the underside of the shovel, digging a buddy out and having that jam open with some ice... BAD NEWS MAN! And the "Dry Safety Compartment" is too small to fit any kind of "Safety" gear in. Overall it's one of the best shovels out there. Full review
