As we all know ice tends to accumulate around the base plate.
Relax man. So what if it's my first post? I'm not in any way affiliated with that company. I just happened to see the video on youtube and noticed that no one has posted anything about it. Now that you mentioned it, I agree...it would probably accumulate snow and ice around the base. I just thought it was cool how the straps are out of your way before stepping into them. Let's just all calm down and be happy that companies are experimenting and trying things out to improve equipment for all of us.

Agreed, but hang around here long enough and you'll smell sales tactic from a mile away, and your post reeked of sales. First post, link to some pro-mo vid instead of an unbiased review, etc. etc.

Innovation good, spam bad.

Yeah, now that you mentioned it my first post did look like spam. My apologies. Now let's see some more 2014 gear!

Base in my case. Homeschool use it for its breatheabilty in their outerwear which as far as I know are all shells. But they also make all their base layer pieces with it. You could probably email them for the specifics.

Launch bindings
Maybe they will be good. Maybe not. But I just have this weird feeling that more concern was made about giving them the ability to help you strap up faster then was placed on them having good performance. Time will tell though

I am too

But then I've always been a fan of the Fish, Hovercraft, and others of similar designs.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!
