IMO that all looks pretty sick. Especially the fact that there shit is with Gore-Tex now. They have their outerwear in the right direction and I don't see any other companies doing anything more significant besides the basic pocket re-location and color ways. Plus Armada is making skis, poles, hoodies, gloves, beanies, hats, suspenders, backpacks, balaclavas, face tubes, layering, tech-hoodies, and probably more shit than I can't name off the top of my head. There's a few other companies that can encompass your whole set up for the season besides maybe Salomon and a few others. But how many of those companies have the same caliber of quality products? Give them a break. I'll probably be seeing a large portion of my home mountains park/pow skiers wearing that stuff next year. I am done here.
I think this years line looks good, the Thall looks way better then last season, and the ar7 has the classic graphic. I want a pair so much as I sold my old arv's with that graphic.
And in response to why they have 3 new pow skis, well simply that is where the money is. Park is still a tiny demographic so they will make more money making skis which have a bigger market base, such as pow and backcountry skis.
