Well tomorrow is the first day we are heading into the hills with our skis now they have turned white and that means it’s time to break out the Haglofs gear. Still the best kit out there on the market we are still loving it and even though we are sponsored by Haglofs we are not corporate bunnies so if we don’t like it we would say however we have been with Haglofs for over 5 years and we are still loving the kit we even still wear the original shark fin pants from 5 years ago they are that good!
