    Depending on where you live, you may have to sled in from lower elevations to get to the goods, which sometimes entails riding through the rain . That is a pretty common occurrence here in WA. We often carry a complete extra hardshell kit on the sled for this purpose.

    p.s. besides venting zips, never underestimate the power & venting performance/qualities of leaving your fly down when needed....im not kidding...it works

    i can go on about vests/packs/avi bags for ski accessed sledding.....and the need for smart carry for traveling light with no flapping

    Cheetah factory rack is the only option imo. My rack is linq compatible, oneside is setup for ski/board the other pow surf board. Dime bag keeps water, coffee and soup thermoses.
    Linq gas can and linq snow flap all fit together very nicely.

    One vote for MoPros. Rack is super well made. Customer Service has been on point. Can't speak to anything past that.

    I went MoPros. Adjustability of the rods versus welded bars and the large rack size seemed to be exactly what I want. Getting it in today and will report back

    I have some buddies who ride and ski in bibs from these guys. They’re pretty stoked on them. I have no personal experience.

    A few sled friends swear by ToBe one piece suits. I’ve been trying to justify one but my bibs and jacket are new for this winter. Maybe I’ll sell some skis and justify it then, you know, to save my bibs from getting destroyed.

    Unless I was touring off of the sled, I just wore sled gear, in fact, if I was snowboarding I used my sled boots instead of tearing up my regular snowboard boots. They weren’t as stiff but since I was only riding powder it was fine. Sled gear is designed for the abuse of riding a sled and the big differences in how hard you working .

    Keep in mind that a fairly large percentage of the sledder population is obese. The gear made for these guys is not optimized for uphill touring. In fact, I can't really understand why sledders think they're so great. You can't adjust your layering as easily and the only upside is not getting snow down the back of your pants, which isn'[t really a thing (but I'm not fat, so maybe that's the difference). Then again, they obsess over the style, color and features of the "man purses" they attach to the back of their sleds, so it's probably as much about fashion as anything.

    Must be a regional thing. Around here they're mostly athletic.

    Yeah, I'd say I'm not in good enough shape to sled really.

    A lot of the sled gear I have seen is quite a bit heavier and less breathable. Strikt and Tobe come to mind. See people shedding layers pretty quick!

    anyone riding tandem on a 36" front end? Also wondering how it will behave when the tunnel is loaded down with hut supplies?

    Yeah skidoo has been 36" for a while. No issues.

    Loaded down hurts the sled. With hut gear just move gear and go back for people. 2 is fine.

    Once I stiffened my suspension I’ll to 4 (out of 5) it got a lot more comfortable doubling and carrying gear

    Get a tow bumper and a toboggan for hut gear....

    Tow bumper stiffens the tunnel up nicely too

    Another what used sled to buy question...

    Budget 6-7k, mostly blasting out logging roads for ski access around Golden, lots of tandeming at first. Mostly looking in Calgary. Most important thing is reliability/least maintenance. Was set on a 09-15 m8, but they are getting hard to find in a 162. Any summit years/models to avoid?

    Any summit etec from 2012 to today are good. A little teething problem with 2013 and 2017 but should be sorted by now.
