    We got them, too, and they are by far the most comfortable mask I've tried. According to the OR rep, sales have been through the roof this summer.

    Last season I went with a shorter (180) and narrower (112) Rustler 11 in that spot. Wasn't a bad call.

    Atris, M-Free 108 and Völkl Blaze 106 all might work as well - I like them all.

    X3.

    The 190cm 30m WC skis kick my butt. A 183cm or 186cm (Women's FIS GS) with a 27m radius (2013-2015-ish) certainly doesn't ski itself, but is still fun.
