The new Hagan skimo race suits are here. They look sharp and are super functional: wind resistant (and surprisingly warm) interior skin pockets, two exterior pockets, small zippered ID/phone pocket, reflective piping and patches to keep you safe in pre-dawn and post-sunset training, integrated hoods. The graphic design is similar to last year, slightly simplified. The material on the lower legs is a bit lighter than last year, although a large section of abrasion resistant material remains on the lower inside legs to ward off cuts from boots and ski edges.
Although built for racing, race suits aren't limited to racing. They make a fantastic training outfit - as a base layer when it is cold and with a light jacket and maybe over-shorts when warm. Thinking a skimo race suit is for racing only is like thinking a bike jersey is for racing only. The Hagan skimo race suit is superb at keeping you comfortable without bulk: it keeps snow out of your boots and in the event of spills prevents snow from going down your waist and neck.
And nothing says "self-assured" like heading to the coffee shop wearing one of these after training or racing!

Last spring Blister Gear Reviews put some miles on theHagan Core 12 binding. Some of their thoughts:
We have a new website!! It took a lot of work. I think it was worth it. I hope you like it. It's not complete yet. (It never is.) But it is close. Mostly functional.
Please tell me about any errors you encounter or suggestions you have.
Announcing our new Hagan Ambassador Program. We know there are a lot of Hagan fans out there, and we greatly appreciate you. We do almost no marketing. It isn't our nature.
