Pretty sure Jeremy is using the Verts with the Karakorum interface, but that is splitting hairs. I have had Verts for years. For hiking up a steep couloir there is really nothing better. They work in any snow you can crush into. Once it gets firm, you'll need crampons.

I like the verts with the splitboard binding interface a big better. Easier to stack on your pack or in it. I think in the last 4 years I haven't used them at all. Though there are at least a couple of days that I wish I brought 'em. It's a specialty tool that you probably won't use much. Unless you're in frequently in Alaska.
