I'm veering toward the AR7 at the moment due to the sizing, 181 would be my choice, as opposed to the 185 on the ARV (which i think is maybe a little too big). Also, i think the 95 waist on the ARV might be too fat for me as i spend more time on piste than off. I think the 89 waist on the AR7 would be about right for me too. And of course, the price is a little bonus (abouut $35 cheaper).
Any help would be greatly appreciated and +K will be awarded :)
