• Just an update if anyone might be interested:

    First I ordered the size S Alpinists. Apart from not really covering the whole board (but being lighter and more compact), they didn’t really fit the Landlord well.

    My first question: are the new T1 models worth it?
    I know not many have tested them yet but your opinions are welcome. AFAIK, the difference is the adjustable highback and the…[Read more]
