"McLovin' it" 4/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (3) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sessions Suburban Softshell
  • Pros:  Softshell material is super-duper-comfy, Great mobility compared to a jacket, Catch-free zippers
  • Cons:  Low breathabillity rating,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  True to size

Experience:   Review after one day riding at Northstar...Started with spring-like conditions, turned to snow and 10-20mph wind in the afternoon. I wore this the entire time. Sessions website claims 10k waterproofing. I would say this is accurate. 5k beathability...I started getting warm in the morning from the spring-like conditions, and my arms stayed damp-feeling all day long. The jacket kept the moisture from the snow out, but it also kept the moisture of my body in. The breathability rating could use help with pit-zips or mesh panels added in the inner fleece to help with heat/moisture control. I found the sleeves to be a perfect length. The softshell material is great for a random wipe of the nose, without the fear of scratching yourself on rough fabric seams,velcro, or other jacket/glove hazard. The softshell material extends to the end of the cuff on the palm side, which helps keep the cuff from collecting as much snow. The elastic cuffs and jacket bottom will collect some snow and moisture, which in my opinion, should be made of the same softshell material to prevent this from happening. The integrated mittens are a novelty that will most likely never be used. There is a hole with a retractable thumb condom, which is not very comfortable, and the mitten for your four fingers is tight. The zippers are all catch-free!!! Granted, there are only 3 zippers, but the main zipper was easy to use, even with gloves. The two hand pocket zippers could use a larger pull to use with gloves, but the zippers are all catch-free!!! Overall, I now prefer this softshell over my bulky jacket for basically any riding conditions, simply because it is soooo soft and feels like I'm not wearing any outerlayer...yet I still have some protection against the elements. I have never been a fan of jackets, and would only wear one in blizzard-like conditions...I have finally found one to wear for any day on/off the mountain.
"NOT Compatible with double BOA Boots!!!" 3/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Molotov EST Womens
  • Pros:  ?,
  • Cons:  Does not work with double BOA boots, Blue Flame is more like teal green,

Experience:   I bought the Burton Molotov bindings to go on a new Burton Blender board for my girlfriend. I pulled the bindings out of the box, and was somewhat disappointed about the color being more of a teal-green, instead of a turquoise like the picture appears. No worries, they would still look pimp on the Blender board. I mounted them up, so the board was ready to go with her preferred stance...afterall, this was going to be a complete suprise...then I went to adjust the straps to fit her boots. Unfortunately, the outside BOA knob on her double BOA boots gets snagged on the side of the highback. These bindings will not work with boots that have a BOA knob on the outside.
"Worry-free butters" 4/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Blender Womens
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  spoon tip and tail, forgiving flex,

Experience:   My girlfriend managed to do her first butter on this board. She has been riding for 4 years now, but never seemed to really get them down. One day on this board, and something just clicked. She has now put on more than 10 days on it, and her progression is amazing. She is now doing things that she never had a desire to try...like a box!!! She is 38, mother of 2...ripping up black diamond runs with the kids and myself. She absolutely loves this board.
"Base color in picture not very accurate" 9/2/2009
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2009 Palmer Flash Twin
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Well-known brand, Good flex, Great price at 70% off
  • Cons:  base color shown in picture is not accurate,

Experience:   I looked at this board on 3 different computer screens before ordering it, and they all appeared to be a bright medium blue. The actual base color is more of a blue/green, and it is not as bright as the stock photo. Not a big deal, but it definitely won't match my son's blue jacket or the blue helmet that we ordered with the board because it matched the board.
"Great boot with lots of toe room" 2/10/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 K2 Maysis BOA Snowboard Boots - Men's
  • Pros:  Excellent heel hold, Double BOA!!!, Ample Toe Room
  • Cons:  My son makes fun of the blue fur on top,
  • Fit:  stiff
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I have ALWAYS had issues with boots. They either are comfortable, but allow too much heel lift, or they are so uncomfortable that I can't feel my toes at the end of a run. This boot is the first boot that is snug around the heel to minimize heel lift AND still allow some wiggle room for my toes. My toes no longer feel squished together. The double BOA lacing is great and I have discovered that I no longer need to get things as tight as possible...I simply tighten the inner BOA lacing to the point that I feel it...because otherwise, I begin to cut off circulation to my toes. There is definitely a fine line between blood flow to the toes and numbing from a lack of blood. The BOA laces make adjustment easy if I tighten too much or need to tighten a little more. Overall, this is my favorite boot in over 26 years of riding!!!
"Great socks for a great price" 4/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Party
  • Pros:  warm, comfortable all day,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  S
  • Fits Like:  S

Experience:   The punked socks are so ugly they are cool!!! I bought these for my son, and he loves them. They seem to fit him well. He said they were more comfortable than his Burton Emblem socks, both of which are considered Midweight socks. These have Medium-density padding throughout the sock. The Party sock is 80% Acrylic, 10% Nylon, 10% Spandex.
"Stay on your board while getting off the lift" 4/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Dakine BFly Snowboard Stomp
  • Pros:  Extreme grip ,

Experience:   This stomp pad offers extreme grip for those that are sketchy getting off the lift. My girlfriend loves it, although she felt awkward at first due to the extra grip. She was accustomed to flopping around like a fish out of water prior to this stomp pad. Now, her boot stays exactly where she places it. The spikes and the hard plastic material help break away ice build-up on the boot with ease. Great product and even greater price.
"Takes time to get Dialed in" 4/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Scribe EST Womens
  • Pros:  Great performing binding once dialed in.,
  • Cons:  Toe caps slip alot until adjusted perfectly.,

Experience:   The EST initial set up is a little tricky to get perfect because the angle and position seems to move as you tighten the bolts. It is not a big deal, but annoying when you are excited about getting your board set up to go riding for the first time. The toe caps also had issues with slipping off the boot alot. They were somewhat sketchy when the toe caps would slip off on some black diamond runs. The remedy to this took several different attempts at positioning the toe cap on the various mounting holes until it held the boot just right, which incidentally was not exactly the way Burton suggests in their paperwork. The cap strap ended up needing to be more to one side, instead of being more centered on the boot. The bindings have been great, now that they are all dialed in.

Comments & Questions

Melly
Hey, My bf is going to buy some bindings and im just wondering are the bindings with toe strap better or are they all the same? Also do all bindings attach to any board? Or do you have to specifically match them?
