As a backcountry daily driver, the Wailer 106 Tour1 is tough to beat. It’s ultra-light for touring efficiency, girthy and rockered enough for all but the deepest pow days, can hold an edge on everything but pure ice, and provides enough “fun factor” to be more than just a reliable mountain tool. Testers found that the 106 does get tossed around a bit in difficult, mixed conditions, but overall the 106 was a crowd favorite every day.
