sorry to burst you guys' bubble but the mt approach system is a complete joke.

- its $700.

- it weighs 9 lbs, the same as a solid snowboard. a split only weighs 14lbs with skins. with this system you are carrying the extra weight of a snowboard on the up and the down; you're bootpacking up steeps with the weight of both.

- by dumbass buddy bought a pair and one of the hinges shattered about 2 miles his second tour just from the cold and them sucking dick (20-25 degrees)

guy have been making split noboards with more packable bindings for the up that just go inside your pack for the down...

mt approach is not a legit piece of serious backcountry gear and the price is just a stupid assraping. take their money tho - nothing wrong with that!
