Great wax for the changing conditions in the PNW. This wax is fast in all conditions and wears reasonably well. No need to check snow temp with this wax.

The Hertel All Temp (aka Hot Sauce) is an everyday recreational go-to wax for most all snow conditions.
Pro- cost effective, low temp melt, easy application.
Con- Longevity is a bit lacking.
Bottom Line- No need to spend bazillions, this stuff gets the job done.

Probably one of the best general purpose waxes

I am impressed that this wax actually works at temps above 34 degrees F. We used to just quit Snowkiting out in the fields when the snow got this warm because the boards or skis would be too hard to push in front of you. Now there seems to just be no upper limit to how warm we can go. Cold performance is as good as other European style waxes except the range is wider and you do not have to worry about the temp the next day. No other all temp wax that I have used does this. Durability is decent but no better than other temp specific waxes out there.

What I like about this product is multiple: 1st it is a good everyday, every condition wax especially for the western areas. Second, it is economical. Lastly, it doesn't take an abnormal amount of iron heat for application. Durability is a compromise of the low cost. All in all, it gets the job done well.

I found this to be noticeably faster than other waxes I have bought & whatever the local ski shop uses. I have found that in the spring, it strips off in a very short period, less than 1 run. I would have given it 5 stars if not for that.

I use this for the entire quiver plus the rest of the families skis and it is great for the conditions we usually see in the PNW. If it gets really cold and dry I will blend it 1:1 with the Hertel Cold Snap wax and that gets me down well below zero Fahrenheit (can't tell how far because if it gets below about -15 I'm probably not skiing)
