Osprey Packs Kresta 30L Backpack - Women's
As most women know, backpacks are often the unfortunate victim of the pink-and-shrink laser beam. However, designers over at Osprey heard the call for a functional, women-specific touring backpack, and answered with the Kresta 30 Backpack. And in typical Osprey fashion, the Kresta has just the right amount of features necessary for a day of touring in the alpine without skimping on the overall fit or functionality.
More specifically, this pack is fashioned with a women-specific Light Wire suspension system that when combined with the padded help belt and stabilization straps, provide a comfortable and pressure-free haul. The thermoformed, contoured back panel sheds snow easily, and ultimately reduces the build-up of frozen precipitation on your backside. Not to mention, a deployable helmet net makes carrying your helmet a breeze, and the tuck-away ice tool loop ensures you're able to haul technical tools without worrying about losing them en route.
In keeping with its versatile construction, the Kresta boasts a horizontal snowboarding carrying feature, or if you're of the dual-planked nature, it also touts an A-frame or diagonal ski carrying design. Though, perhaps most importantly, the Kresta has a J-shaped avalanche gear compartment, complete with dry pocket, so you're not only able to access your safety gear in a flash, but you're also able to separate your sensitive avy gear from wet skins or damp clothing. A back panel entry system enables you quick access to snacks or extra layers, and all of the Kresta's zipper pulls, as well as buckles, are glove and mitten friendly.
Atomic Backland Alpine Touring Boot - Women's
Get out to the backcountry where the crowds are scarce and the powder is plentiful with the Atomic Women's Backland Alpine Touring Boot. With a ridiculously generous cuff rotation—74-degrees to be exact—the Backland lives for long tours, steep bootpacks, and exposed hikes up knife edge ridges to gain the summit. When it comes transition, the rigid and easy to engage Free/Lock 2.0 walk mode and Quick Click interchangeable tongue serves up a stiff and powerful feel that will inspire confidence when you lay into that first turn from the summit of your objective.
The lightweight Grilamid shell can be heat-molded for a precise and comfortable fit, while the two aluminum buckles with a cross lace system work to lock the boot down for the descent. Inside the shell, the Backland's liner is designed specifically for backcountry touring and is completely waterproof and breathable. A perforated design helps excess heat and moisture escape, and it's heat-moldable, too, allowing for an even more customized fit. And, when you're traversing icy ridges, you'll appreciate the grippy Skywalk rubber sole, offering up reliable traction so you can focus on your objective.

Dynafit Beast 98 Ski - Women's
Finding the best snow a week after the last storm requires some additional effort. When those sheltered north-facing couloirs seem like the best bet, step into the Dynafit Women's Beast 98 Ski as you get ready for the long skin into your line. The ski is built around a stout ash and poplar wood core that helps save weight during the skin up and maintains stability when you're skiing aggressively on bigger terrain. The ski's 98mm waist puts an emphasis on versatility, so it'll handle everything from windboard at the top, sheltered pow in the middle, to a little bit of the crusty stuff when the apron starts to twist to the east. The Beast isn't your typical backcountry ski, though—its Double Elipse profile consists of a full rocker profile to give the ski a predictable and playful feel as you enter and exit a turn.
Hi this is hub with back country calm out. Enjoying a beautiful spring day and the Wasatch mountains here near our home base in park city utah I'm standing here with the beast 16 binding we alluded to this a little bit earlier in the year that we are going to be one of the few actually the only online retailer in. North america that's going to be allowed to carry this binding we're gonna have. Roughly a hundred pairs for the fall winter 13-14 season it's a very limited. Release there's 2,500 worldwide 850 in north america and a hundred of those are gonna be here at back country calm i want. To go through a few of the technical aspects of the beast binding because it's obviously quite a bit different than a lot of the dena fit products that you've seen in the past first thing I'd like to kind of mention is obviously you can tell it still has the tech inserts that we've come to know and love from the dena fit brand which allows you great freedom of motion when you're hiking uphill there's nothing there's no resistance points as you're climbing also you're climbing more off the ball of your foot as opposed to having a pivot point that's a little further in the front which feels like more of a natural walk motion so as with a lot of. The other dena fit bindings this button is going to allow you to enter the binding by simply pressing down on it the teeth will open up and then you'll allow you to sit into the tech inserts in the front of your boot now when you're actually going into walk mode this throw would go forward which. Prevents the toe piece from actually pivoting now when you do go into ski mode and you put your throw back in place here you will actually have the binding that's gonna pivot laterally in the front which is something completely new for dena fit and it's going to allow you a lot better release in terms. Of lateral release as well as vertical release from the binding now on the heel. Of the binding obviously this looks quite a bit bigger than anything that we've seen from dena fit in the past and as i mentioned before the dena fit. Binding even though it's quite a bit burly are looking it still is keeping the weight you know shaved down at night 35 grams is still a really lightweight binding for the amount of safety. Protection and performance that you're going to get out of this piece now the first thing that obviously you're going to notice is the pins have changed from a round pin they've had in the past with all the dena fit tech bindings to an oval eyes pin now the oval eyes pin is going to have more surface area so it has greater contact with the boot and with greater contact with the boot you'll be able to transfer the energy a lot easier to the ski and it's going to give you a lot more lateral rigidity on the downhill now when you're actually going to go you know if i was going to step into this binding and go into ski mode all i would simply do is step in you'd be locked in and ready to go now when we're gonna go into tour mode you would engage the front of the binding and then all you do is pull this first throw down and it's going to lock out. Both the brake and put in your primary climbing post for your uphill mode now. You have a secondary climbing post which. Actually will flip over and you can easily flip it over with a pole and it locks into place on top of the secondary climbing post it's easier to just you can pop it out with your pole get it back in place like that the other things that you're going to notice right off the bat is the increased size of the. Spring in the rear of the binding now this does have a release value of 16 as I've mentioned before which is not dim standard because no tech bindings at this point are actually din released standard but what is known as its release value so it's going to be very comfortable to that if you're familiar with a din setting the other thing is obviously it does have two points of adjustment here for your din which is going to adjust the upper spring and then as well as your lateral release which is going to be adjusted from the rear of the binding now when you want to go out get your skins off and everything you're done at the top all you do is pop this right out-of-place click it back step in and you're ready to go now the. Other really important factor here is the elasticity of the entire binding in the past a concern has been the people you know if they were coming off a large air or really compressing on the tail coming out at a high speed turn but the pins can actually move a little bit in the back of the boot which generally speaking is not a problem with this new rear piece and front pivoting a toe piece it. Actually has an elasticity to the entire binding that will keep the pins at a constant pressure with the rear of your boot so you never have to worry about pre releasing from this binding this is the beast 16 binding we're really excited to be the exclusive online retailer for dena fit in north america to offer this to the consumer if you. Have any more questions about the binding about the process of mounting the boots and bindings and skis together feel free to call our gear heads, and they can answer any questions that you may have on this any dena fit product or any other product that we have a back country comm.

Sure, you don't have much trouble smoking everyone in your group on daily dawn patrols and all-day backcountry missions, but if your boot can't stand up to your aggressive skiing style, what use does it serve? For women who like ripping the descent as hard as they charge up the skintrack, the La Sportiva Sparkle 2.0 provides the optimal balance of lightweight functionality and expert downhill performance.
The reshaped shell now accommodates a far wider variety of feet and has a beefed up flex. Four Pegasus buckles with an optional power strap allow you to dial in your fit so you can capitalize on every ounce of that stiff flex in techy couloirs and wide-open powder fields. 60-degree cuff rotation and a comfortable EZ Thermo heat-moldable liner keep feet moving comfortably on long days, and the three preset forward lean positions can be selected according to your preference.

Hey it's brad from back country skiing canada calm and today we're going to talk about the last sport team of specter 2.0 alpine touring boot this. Replaces the original spectrum boot which we reviewed a few years back that can be found over here this is still the. Lightest 4 buckle boots on the market it weighs in at 1400 45 grams or about. Three pounds three ounces that's four half pair size 27 and a half sizing. Comes in from 25 all the way to 35 sorry 31.5 in half sizes the boot is a little. But stiffer this year it's got a 115 flex rating which is about five percent stiffer than previous version the shell. Is made of grille made and the cuff is p back so that's what makes this boot so light again it's four buckles so it's a pretty light boot considering it's a four buckle boot it's also now compatible with alpine bindings tech. Bindings and tr2 bindings so that's a new feature as well what is the same on. This boot is the low profile Pegasus. Buckles really simple easy cam device to use they don't pop out when you're using the boot takes a little bit of getting used to using them because they are so innovative but once you get used to using them they're pretty easy to use. On a day-to-day basis thermo moldable. Easy liner is the same as well and also the 60-degree cuff rotation so a really huge range of motion in walk mode and. What i love about the less marked eva's in the original version in this version is you don't have to unbuckle the boot to get that range of motion i keep the boot totally buckled up i might open this one up just to get the blood flow again but in fully buckled mode you can. Get that sixty degrees which is pretty incredible the sole on the 2.0 is a. Vibrant sole it's got the harder the. Harder sole in the yellow locations and the softer soul in the black location so that you can grip on a rock better and not wear down the tip and toe what is. New is well in the 2.0 version is a roomier toe box the last sport team has always had a really roomy toe box this time it's even roomier I've had to put an insert in to take up some of that room because it was just so much room for me but nice feature because you can. Wheel the toes keep them warm the pivot point as well it used to be removable with an allen key now it's built-in it's fixed which is great because i did lose the pivot point once at a lodge which was not the most opportune time so now that's a solid feature which is great color scheme is. New as well I'm digging it i think it's. A great color scheme for the boot nice and vibrant and lots of fun to wear it's also 5% stiffer as i said before. And you can definitely feel that when. Ski touring and it's a nice feature price on this is 779 canadian 679 us so. It's a pretty reasonably priced boot considering it's such a lightweight boot and it's got all these great features and yet it still skis the hill so I've. Ski turret in this the previous version the last 14 is spectre original promote. Two and a half three years i think now on the version 2.0 and it's a I'd say better than the last version they've they've improved some features but you can tour in this you can ski the hill and it kind of does it also it's one of my favorite boots that I've ever toured in or skied in period the women's. Version is the sparkle and it's got a nice color colorway as well if you're. Looking for a really light boot and you. Don't want to compromise anything on the down you want a good fit you want huge.

Scarpa Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot - Women's
The Scarpa Women's Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot is Queen of the Mountain in the Scarpa freeride line. It's the burliest, with a 120 flex index, but almost a pound lighter than the standard Freedom. The SL also uses a lighter Intuition liner and more aggressive sole. Compared to Scarpa's touring boots, the Freedom SL is more versatile (added alpine capability) and is stiffer and more powerful, but it does weigh more than the Maestrale or F1. It has a Ride Power Block that delivers frictionless motion for efficient climbing and locks in back support for power transmission on the downhill. For the woman who needs a boot that can charge off the lift in alpine bindings or slip efficiently into the backcountry with tech (TLT) bindings, the Freedom SL has few equals.
Rather than rebadge the men's version with a little pink and a soft flex, Scarpa's engineers made the last a little smaller and the cuff a little lower to match the shape and size of a woman's foot and calf. The Pebax Rnew shell overlaps for a gap-less fit. Its Carbon Core technology wraps it around a bomber carbon frame for lightweight and allover stiffness for precision control. The Intuition FR Speed liner boot is molded with the shell for a seamless fit and powerful performance, key in making the distinction between a competent alpine/AT boot and one that kills it. The 101mm anatomic last features Axial Power Control for lateral stiffness and sensitivity.
The interchangeable Vibram sole gives you lugged tenacity when hiking over scree or down-climbing into a rocky chute—the boot comes with the Rockered Mountain Plus sole for AT and tech bindings, but the Mountain Piste sole is available separately for those who rip on alpine bindings, too. You'll feel the advantage in an instant and respond with a peaceful mind. After all, you don't want to charge down a finger chute with already-frayed nerves.
This is the new scope of freedom sl it's. A free ride touring boot so the idea. Being you can easily go on any tours. Generally probably more a day tour than. A full overnight longer tour but the. Beauty of this boot is it can be your one boot does everything it's. Performance downhill when your skin on piece is absolutely brilliant the lateral performance is good the power. Forward into the turn is good but it's. Still, pretty lightweight so for touring. You know it's still very good if you're into free ride tutoring with a. Bigger wider ski this is the kind of. Boot you want to be looking at the scope of freedom sl comes complete with the. Vibram tekken's sole unit but the beauty. Of this as a boot is you can unscrew the sole unit and put standard alpine piece. Soil unit on so it does mean that this boot can be used in a touring pin type. Binding a touring cage type binding or a. Standard our point binding sl is. Available at ski barclays in hillingdon or it's also available on our website at. Skybar lucam.
Arc'teryx Procline AR Carbon Alpine Touring Boot - Women's
The Arc'teryx Procline collection consists of highly technical ski boots built to balance uphill and downhill performance. Unlike any other alpine touring boot, the Proclines provide a 360° rotation in walk mode for an amplified performance on the climb whether you're skinning, boot packing, or even ice climbing. The Women's Procline AR Carbon Alpine Touring Boot is the stiffest boot in the Procline collection designed for women. A carbon cuff not only achieves a stiffer flex than the original Procline AR, it's also a lighter option, making it better for the uphill as well as the downhill.
Arc'teryx designed this Procline with a narrow 98mm last to provide a precise performance and quicker side-to-side transitions. The gaiter includes reliable waterproofing over the SoftStretch material and zippered closure. Underfoot, Vibram rubber grants this boot incredible traction on rock, ice, and snow, and the sole's compatible with tech bindings. Arc'teryx redesigned the power strap and pivot-point washers for improved security and overall durability.
When you're touring and you flick this it's amazing the range of motion obviously that you have without undoing. That top class so it's very precise for. Where you want to put your foot but feels really freaked she's good i guess if you can do this if you want and you loosen it rights up when you're throwing to it makes it even easier the side. To side motion business and kind of see. Here it's on an angle makes it better yeah i like that i just. Kind of want to see if snow entry is any. Issue with this it's a mountaineering boot so times are gonna happen when you do get off your skis obviously and start. Postholing up there's something nasty and big i don't know if he'll be full walk mode like this or not but likely so. You can see i mean that keeps a lot of the snow out which is really nice that tall boots all gator and then. There's that cuff area so without doing. Anything to it i just clamp that yep. Clamps i don't think i can feel it but it's in. There it's definitely in there so i. Don't know yeah but other than that i. Mean boots sure does skin nice that's very comfortable and free feeling and. Light and on off-camber type stuff it. Sure allows you to keep a full skin contact if you choose so yeah so far so. Good okay so now it's time for the book. Review inside instead of in the rain so. There it is size 27 and there's our weight pretty. Simple little scale one boot 1.3 6. Kilograms so super light obviously. Especially when you're looking at something that is as strong as skiing boot as it is so that's nice so good weight on the boot now, and we look at the liners you'll see there are two liners that this boot is using this. Is the support liner the support liner. Are they're stronger liner it's nice just. A good flex motion in the back of flexes. Going in the back so you can get lots of easily easy angulation with this boot is. The cuff of the boot certainly allows it, so we don't want the liner to restrict that different densities of foam nice. And stiff through the top and the tongue so lots of support through their nice moldable down through the bottom which is great and then obviously our character being a mountaineering company they're thinking about using liners like this if you have to be drawing your liners you're wearing them alone not in a boot you can see you've got a rubber. Bottom to that boot which is going to. Give you a lot better traction if necessary but just durability as well so. Into the actual boot itself the plastics this is where all the magic is in this boot a few things that i really. Like i love how dry this boot is with this. Zipper that does up from the front of the boot it keeps this entire structure. Quite watertight as you can see that you. Tough and that gator around the top it's going to keep a lot of snow out so when you have that boot opened and you are in tour mode and a lot of other boots you. Collect a lot of snow through here through buckles and into the boot so you have a lot of water entry into this whole boot system that's not the case with this. Which is really nice to see it's in front of the boot as you can see has the rubber rand to it that's a thermoformed. Rand it's not going to pull away from that gives you much better durability. And some add its stickiness if you are. Climbing and using this boot from a mountaineering standpoint to have a hard. Plastic toe that can skate off is not a. Good scenario so having this is going to make a big difference for people its ultimate comfort when they are climbing and not using it with their skis and you. Can see it's a very burly soul the soul that's on there is not one of these super lightweight soles that's going to. Disintegrate in one season of use that's. A full proper vibrational go it's a. Mountaineering sole great to see that. Obviously works with pins it's what it's made for it's the only way it's going to work but from a standpoint of moving in. The mountains it's great to have that security on your feet so all in all i. Have to say that our caraxes nu pro kline. Boot walks as i would expect it to walk. And skis much better so i think it's. Going to be it's its definitely worthy of carrying the arc'teryx name hope you enjoy it.

You can flip the boot from the generous 60-degree range of cuff mobility to fully tightened, locked, and loaded with the single top buckle, and if your forefoot needs a little TLC, the micro-adjustable lower strap provides even more customization.
