Thats the downside of being solid is that its heavy. Most people carry light shovel set ups. What would you want someone to have in their packs? In the handle there is a sled building kit, so if you have k2 or any other ski you can use the handles and blade to build a sled, to make it solid you will need 5m of cord. The hoe option is nice to move snow fast.
These have a nice wrap to face. Have a solid feel yet not to heavy considering there is metal on them. Banged them up in the pocket skiing, and they held together like it never happened. I have the matte black/black iridium.
Solid piece. Good for hiking when its really cold. Down sucks up moisture and freezes while the synthetics help breathability. Fitted fit, I wear a large. On the town, layering piece, or stand alone if temperature allows.
I had heard about the idea years ago, now its reality. Fun to see all the stats, trail map, and buddy tracker. There is an app for you phone and yo can use that or the wrist band controller. The lens and fit are what you would expect from Oakley. You need to charge them for everyday ski day. One thing, don't get caught up looking at the screen to much while actually skiing you may crash into something.
