Reviews - Armada Women's VJJ Skis
Love these skis enough to get over the name
I know I'm not the only woman out there who was a little hesitant to buy a ski named the VJJ (if you don't understand why, try saying it out loud), but I'm glad I got over it. Performance in untracked powder leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. What's been more surprising is how much I like them on groomers and hardpack. These turn and stop on a dime, which makes them quite confidence-inspiring in most conditions. I'm still working on learning to learning to love trees (embarrassing to admit, but it's taken me years to see them as something other than potentially lethal hazards), and these have definitely helped. They ski very short as a result of the profile, so if you're debating between two lengths, it's probably a good idea to go with the longer option. They're obviously not going to be the lightest skis in the world, but they're also not so heavy as to rule out backcountry use. I probably wouldn't recommend them to someone looking for a one-ski quiver, but all things considered, they're remarkably versatile.
