gadgets n gizmos that have truly helped your skiing ability...

Sure I've heard of that  booster power strap for the boots.

http://www.masterfitenterprises.com/booster.html 

 

here is another one, just came across it, almost as a harness for back:

http://www.theskicoach.com/ 

 

also heard of a wedge for boots aka the 'shim balance system; (SBS)

http://www.howtoski.net/sub_ffndtn.html 

 

sure good skiing is all about mileage and feedback to improve one's skill level,

 but like anything, these gadgets n gizmos I'm sure can also improve incrementally

 in other ways too, as part of an integrated approach, to some degree

(and hey, let's face it: most of us LIKE gizmos and gadgets...as long as they are affordable and/or 

offer true value for the dollar)

 

what has been your feedback in trying these or other products...also list your skill level.

 

cheers

Booster strap by far. Best bang for your buck.

Also InstaPrint foam tongue shims. That plus the Booster strap are indispensable for us guys who are "chicken shinned".

Any heating apparatus either chemical or electrical....cant ski if hands or feet are frozen.

 

Heated hydration back pack....cant ski if I am parched, regular hydration units freeze up, water bottles also tend to freeze and even when they don't falling on one can result in bruised or broken ribs.

The so-called "boot glove" is a minimal hassle, non-chemical, non-electrical aid for keeping your feet warm. See here or Amazon: http://cozywinters.com/shop/bga.html These only work if placed over relatively warm boots.

 

I've used Hotronic electrical warmers, which are superior for warming the feet, no doubt, but a bit more of a hassle.

I'm a big fan of any boot that incorporates Pebax materials. Light and perfect flex.
