    Nice. I can get a pretty good deal on Bmt90 here in the UK, and I'm kind of tempted to go for them but I'd decided that 100-105 underfoot would be more versatile for winter conditions. I'm also...

    Thanks all. Sounds like the 172 is probably a good call.

    Lee - what length would you suggest for someone 145lbs / 5'7" in the 105? For day tours and a bit of hut to hut in the alps. I normally ski something in the 174-178 range. Go up to the 180 or down...

    Thanks Jake, my real world weight of the 178 MWM was not quite as high as yours - I got 1680g which puts it about 280g more than the BMT90 in the 177. In 170 the weight should be around 1530g which...

    The Bmt 90 would certainly be appealing from a weight perspective. 170 MVW is 1530, 177 Bmt90 is 1400, 170 Bmt90 is 1330.

    The other benefit to the bmt is that they are available whereas I can't...
