    Consider some unpopular ski-mo skis too. I got my mom on Elan Alaska. It's super light, flexy, good construction and reasonably performant ski. They were also cheap in short size.

    I always wanted a pair of cochise straps for my touring boots. I think they would make transitions faster(?). If you don't have any interest in the whole boot I would take those buckles.

    Wouldn't a sticky caliper boil the brake fluid? The temperature required to warp a rotor is very high. Boiling brake fluid would be very noticeable.

    Try https://www.wheel-size.com/ and go by rim size. You can play with the numbers a bit. Arguably you can get rims with a bigger center bore if you do your own tire changeover and do it carefully.

    The shovel handle and probe often work their way out of the flap. In deep 3D snow the lid can sink and end up down. I am careful, but it could be better.
