Re: More traction for waxless skis in less ideal conditions. Kicker skins?

Perhaps, might actually be too grippy or not enough with the skins, plus those metal clips at the front might really heap. Get yourself a pair and experiment, things get harder to predict when the snow goes south

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

I’m curious what to use on the boot leather? Alfa has a nice write-up on their website about boot care, but I don’t remember anything specific on products. https://www.alfaoutdoor.com/service-center/care-instructions/full-grain-leather Alfa does say: “ Boots with Gore-Tex[emoji2400] waterproof tech...

Re: Pomoca Pink Fiber Length

My comment was assuming that was the cheapest option. If you get them cheaper still better yet

A pair of full length skins in this model should give me plenty of material to make the inserts that I need for both ski styles that I am testing.
If I were you, I'd just buy the skin material, not an entire skin with anchors. enjoy the research and let us know how it all turns out for you.

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

That’s funny, https://altabackcountry.com/2019/04/17/gear-review-asnes-mountain-race-48-cross-country-skis/ IS the link that got me stoked on the MR48s! I like the stuff they have posted on their blog. A really interesting and long post on their hike of the Canadian GDT. Probably not something I wo...

Re: Pomoca Pink Fiber Length

Comparing glide and durability of recessed skins and the asnes/Fischer easy fits or other slap over the base skins is probably like comparing apples And oranges. Recessing the skins changed the effective length of the hairs and resolves issues with the draggy attachment point. Sent from my iPhone us...

Re: Why 14mm drill bit for NNN/NNNBC bindings

I recall there are two screw lengths in that binding but don’t remember the lengths off hand.

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

Thanks for the feedback — I hope what I put out there is useful to others. Are those the Chenna Baree insoles from NB? https://www.chennabaree.com/shop/ Which ones do you like, the Ortho-natural insoles , or the Winter ones? I can’t figure out why the winter ones are $11 less? I like the idea of a ...

2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

Stephens detailed review/comments is some of the best and to the point I’ve read in a long time. thanks for your input. So I gather you finally bit the bullet and ordered guards online? Any how, just wanted to thank you for your great input and add that all boots, even the best, merit an insole repl...

2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

Stephen, I believe most people who have raved about the Guard here have not themselves owned or tried the skarvet. Both are great boots. if I were you I would get the skarvets locally and be happy knowing you own one of the top NNN BC boots ever made.
