Likes: I have never skiied/snowboarded with anything else and i doubt I ever will. The quality of these products is amazing and lasts forever. You have to get rid of it because you just can't stand the stains on it anymore not because of any quality problems.
Qualities: Innovative, Quality gear, I'd reccomment to a friend, Popular on the mountain, Good warranty program, Fashionable
Experience: I own Columbia product
Likes: I have a pair of Nordica boots that I have had for about 8-9 years now and outside of minor wear and tear, they are in optimum condition. All of the buckles still work and they still keep my feet nice and toasty warm.

Likes: I have had these skis for about 6-7 years now and they are still in perfect condition. I ski as much as I possibly can (not necessarily in the greatest conditions either) and they have never given me a problem.

Experience: I own Salomon product
Likes: I have two pairs of Oakley goggles (A-frame and Wisdom). I bought the Wisdom because the A-frame was too small for my head and I have since been letting my girlfriend use my A-frames. Since she has been using those, I convinced her to buy a pair of the Stockholms and they are fantastic as well.
I have never had a bad/defective Oakley product. Plus, if you're like me and you can't help but want a new pair every year, they keep their value very well.

Likes: I've got a pair of Gor-Tex gloves and they work fantastically. I love to board/ski when it is as cold as possible (i.e. less people on the slopes) and I used to have to wear minimum 2 pair of gloves. With these, I have yet to have a problem even when the wind chill was -22 degrees last February.
Also, I'm about to try out their warranty program for the first time so I'm hoping that goes well.
