    So the tech fittings on the front of the transalp are 4 mm closer to the front of the boot? I haven't thought about this before but I assumed that the fittings were a standardized distance from the...

    Both the Zero G Tour Pros and this boot have 99 last and "MV touring" volume. I hope the fit will be similar if not the same. I also notice they have added the nice mach 1 power strap nonslip cam...

    I'd probably rather have an actual speed nose than a front welt. If it's a not a full Alpine nose long enough to be compatible with shifts, then the only reason to have any extended welt is for full...

    Skis (and ski gear in general) are hard to review because choices and styles are so dependent on skill level, style, and use cases. As I don't expect TGR to be pumping out all that many reviews,...

    Oops, I guess I read the 2nd edition. But yeah, it seems to me that snow science and weather-based approaches are valuable and useful for professional avalanche forecasting, but not so much for...

    I picked up a used BCA 2.0 on the cheap a while back, and I've been really happy with it so far. The battery life is actually insanely long, and that's the issue I've had with radios in the past. My...

    Just finished this book. It was pretty good and I would recommend it, but not in the way I expected. It has a wealth of knowledge about snow science and some good information about human factors, but...

    Any idea how they failed? Does anything look wrong with the fabric? I was thinking that something like futurelight would be perfect for bibs or pants for touring/alpinism. Currently rocking stingers...

    I put shifts on my inbounds deathwishes, in large part because of your constant deathwish shilling! So you talked me up to this cliff and you had better join me here! I'm honestly a bit annoyed at...

    Knowing that the AFD was stepped still doesn't explain the janky behavior it was doing when I was adjusting mine. Sometimes it wouldn't adjust up or down as I screwed in that direction until I...

    I have a box of original phantom 1.0 that's been sitting in my room for probably 2 years now. Think it's still good to throw on some new skis or is it better off tossing it and going for fresh stuff?...
