"Warm + Dry = Love it!" 12/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Rome Taipan Snowboard Softshell Jacket
  • Pros:  Light, Very dry, Sweet looks
  • Cons:  Could use more pockets,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Slim fitting

Experience:   I bought this just before I went boarding in Breck a couple of weeks ago and it worked like a charm. Over two days, we had 21 of snow coming down and this jacket with the 15,000mm waterproofing kept me completely dry. For a soft shell, this also kept me very warm. I just had a base layer of thermals and a thicker sweatshirt under this jacket and it was very comfortable. The magnetic buttons that keep the zipper covered up were a nice feature, though I wish there were a couple more pockets. A plastic covered pocket in the sleeve for the season pass would be nice. Lastly, I got the white dirt print and was a bit concerned about camouflaging in the snow. Not an issue. In the videos that my buddy took, I can see that I shouldn't have been worried. I love the print and the way it fits with my overall look (grey pants, burton custom 2009 board with white cartel ESTs) :)
"Good/durable" 12/8/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Special Blend Strike Snowboard Pants
  • Pros:  Warm, Dry, Durable
  • Cons:  Dirt shows easily,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Baggy

Experience:   I got these pants at the beginning of last season and they have served me well. Since it was my first year snowboarding, I found myself on my butt or on my knees quite a bit - regardless, the pants have held up well and I was dry at the end of every 7 hour boarding session. I find that the pants have an adequate number of pockets, including water proof ones where I can store my wallet. Going back to the being a beginner comment, I found that these did show a lot of dirt (given that I have the white ones), especially when the snow is melting around the resort and the dirt latches onto the bottoms of the pant legs.
"Sweet bindings" 12/4/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Versatile, Sturdy, Look good
  • Cons:  Toe-cap moves around a lot,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I've got these bindings mounted on my 2009 Burton Custom ICS snowboard and used them all of last season. These are great bindings and even though they are high back, they allow you to adjust your stance very easily. They have taken quite a bit of beating since I'm a new boarder and spend almost as much time on my butt as I do on my feet ;) As others have mentioned, the toe-cap does tend to slip off if you take a tumble, but otherwise they're great.
"No regrets" 12/4/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Custom ICS Snowboard
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Groomed,Park,Powder,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Pedigree, Great looker,

Experience:   This was my first board and it's been great to learn to snowboard on. I've mainly used it on groomed runs both in the icy east (Mt. Tremblant) and fresh pow in Colorado. I've done a bit of park riding and the board has held up well. The ICS is great for making quick adjustments, though once I got my stance fine tuned, I haven't had to make too many changes. I've repeatedly gotten complements on the sweet graphics on the board. So overall, it's a great board that rides well and looks good while doing it!
"Good bag of goodies" 12/3/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Deluxe Starter Kit
  • Pros:  Lots of useful tools, easy to carry,
  • Cons:  stomp pads fall off,

Experience:   I bought this for $20 at an end of the season sale at the local snowboard shop. Overall the kit provides all the tools you need to get started. The only issue I've had with it so far is that one of the stomp pads fell off on the second day out on the slopes.
"Pink head" 12/3/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Giro G10 Mx
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Good ventilation, Light weight

Experience:   I bought the pink G10Mx last season before I hit up Winter Park. The helmet has worked out quite well and has taken quite a bit of beating without showing much wear & tear. As soon as I got it, I sanded it down, covered up the vents, and spray painted the helmet white and light green graffiti style :) It's worked out well and I can change the color as needed with just a can of spray paint from home depot. The helmet goes well with the Giro Root goggles that I got - even with the removable visor on.
"Giro Root - Rose silver" 12/3/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Giro Roots Goggles
  • Pros:  Great snug fit, Good ventilation, Easy to adjust

Experience:   I got the White/Light Grey with Rose tint right before hitting up Winter Park at the end of March of last year. These goggles fit really well with my Giro G10Mx helmet, and where super comfortable to wear all day (and we were on the slopes from first trails till about 4pm every day with no lunch break!) The Rose Silver tint was just perfect for the sunny days and versatile enough to ride into the evening. I did not have a chance to try them out with night boarding though. Overall, I don't think I'll be needing to get any new goggles for a while.

Comments & Questions
