"Analog Team Player" 5/20/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Analog Team Player
  • Pros:  Packs into itself, Very light weight, High vis
  • Cons:  No warmth,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Slightly (only slightly) smaller than other large's i've bought from sierra

Experience:   This is more of a rain jacket than something you'd wear to keep you warm. The back of the jacket has a pocket that the whole jacket folds into and leaves you with an elastic carry strap. The lime green which i purchased is very bright (which is what i was after). This jacket will live with my camera gear to use if it starts to rain. The yellow section is two layers of nylon, the rest is a single nylon layer. This is a very light weight jacket that should be fairly water proof (can treat the nylon with stuff for waterproofing tents if it's not enough) however will not keep you warm.
"Burton AK 3L Hover Review" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton AK 3L Hover
  • Pros:  Breathable, Durable, Lightweight, Warm, Waterproof
  • Description:  WEATHER: Spring Day, Blue Bird Powder Day, Cloudy and Cold, Cold and Blustery Day, Snow and Rain Mixed, Sleet, Storming and White Out, LEG: Relaxed, WAIST: Feels true to size, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

Experience:   Quite expensive (even at half price), but worth every cent. Very nice to wear, totally waterproof - hot enough that you only need a pair of Under Armour/Skins on underneath on most days, wore a pair of track pants on a -8C as well as Under Armour and had all the vents open i was so hot. Zips up to Burton jackets - totally stops stuff going down your backside!
"Super comfy, a little soft" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Freestyle
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Easy lacing, Traction, Good quality, Breathable, Waterproofing, Easy in & out
  • Fit:  soft

Experience:   After breaking in (about 1.5days) they were super comfy all day, however i felt after 2 weeks they were starting to get a bit too soft. Appear to be totally waterproof and the grip pattern on the bottom is great. Walking down sloping roads covered in ice i always had good traction when others were falling on their butts.
"Great sweater" 8/25/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Roxy Icing Sweater
  • Pros:  Covers your butt too, Warm, Stylish
  • Cons:  Not very wind proof,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XS
  • Fits Like:  XS
  • Description:  Excellent, long

Experience:   My girlfriend loves this sweater, in fact she made me buy a second one. The fit on these are fantastic and slightly clinging. Her favourite feature of this sweater is that it comes down right over her bum. This means she can wear it down over her pants and snow will not get in, even on warmer days when her jacket is unzipped/unbuttoned.
"Rather nice" 7/1/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Lightweight Badlands VNeck Pullover Men's
  • Pros:  Stylish, Can wear as a normal shirt if you want, Doesn't have that awful thermal look
  • Cons:  Loose fit,
  • Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Fits more like a tshirt than a thermal

Experience:   I found this to be more like a mid layer or long sleeve shirt for wearing on cool days than a base layer. The fit on this is not tight, nor do i believe it is designed to be. In my opinion, this looks very stylish and is a good long sleeve shirt to wear around. It's warmer than most long sleeve shirts, and it's far better looking than any thermal i've seen. It's part way between a thermal and a normal shirt. Best worn as a middle layer.
"Simply Awesome." 6/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Arbor Bhutan L/S TShirt
  • Pros:  Super soft, Doesn't stink when sweaty, Warm
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Not tight fitting, just a little loose around the chest however not as loose as a normal shirt.

Experience:   I've been using this shirt for a few weeks, i'm not really a fan of the look by itself however as an undershirt with a normal short sleeve tshirt over the top, it works excellent. The silver Analog Venerator looks great over the top. The bamboo fibre really spun me out at first, i wasn't sure about it. After about 10 minutes of wearing it i was sold - it's incredibly soft, very warm and the fibres are very fine. This is the same sort of warmth i expect from slightly thicker merino wool. The advantage of the bamboo is it is able to be thinner over merino, doesn't smell when wet and its oh so nice against your skin (girlfriend is always rubbing me, she loves the feel too). The bamboo dries very quickly as it's a super fine fibres/weave - so lots of surface area to get rid of moisture.
"Get what you pay for, very narrow." 5/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Ride LXh Womens
  • Pros:  Look good,
  • Cons:  Too narrow, No toe ramp adjustment, Straps not well padded
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   These bindings, as other people have said, are incredibly narrow. A Rome Memphis '10 boot in size 6 struggles to fit the small (upto size 7) binding. I love that ride boards have metal binding plates in them and the washers on their screws have grooves for helping hold them secure. These bindings are not very adjustable. You can adjust forward lean and the distance of the high back plus the strap location (to 3 preset holes). There is no front toe ramp - therefore no adjustment. The straps have minimal padding and i can see numb feet occurring if not using really good boots. The toe strap is basically 4mm neoprene with a flexible plastic support glued on it.
"Good boots" 5/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Rome Memphis Womens
  • Pros:  Well padded, Comfortable, Stylish
  • Cons:  Wide heel (for fitting bindings),
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  Aus 5
  • Boot Size:  US 6

Experience:   These fit my girlfriend's Australian size 5 foot very well. Using these in a medium Ride LXh binding the heel is a very tight fit in the binding. Be aware that on small sizes the outer boot is still quite wide so you may need a larger binding size if you're borderline on the recommended binding boot sizes. The white on purple looks great with the V Spot board and a lot of the purple womens clothing available here. The inner boot has the pull style laces with locking tab that works very well (much better than Burton's) The outter boot laces up like any other - in fact the inner/outer combo looks almost identical to Burton's Freestyle '09 boots mechanics wise. Grip pattern on the bottom of the boot will save you from spending time on your ass while walking around on ice.
"Smith Prodigy 2010" 5/20/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Smith Prodigy
  • Pros:  Good field of view, Works with helmets & glasses, Grip strip on band
  • Cons:  Buckle of band at rear,

Experience:   I wear glasses, and can't get contacts for my prescription so finding goggles that work with my very thin light weight glasses is a real pain. I used the Smith Fuse last year and wasn't pleased, i'd spend more time adjusting my goggles than riding. Comparing these to the Fuse they certainly feel better with glasses, the spherical lens gives you a small amount more room inside the goggles to position glasses. These glasses work much better with my RED Hi-Fi Helmet (Large) than the Fuse did, they are a little bulkier so the straps start further out and therefore go around the helmet easier. The straps on these goggles also have a strip of grippy-rubbery-glue-like-stuff down the middle of the band which really helps stop them jumping off the top of your helmet if you put them on the front of your helmet rather than wearing them. These goggles are also seriously good looking (i have White/Sensor). View angle doesn't appear to be any greater than the Fuse to me.
"Poorly designed" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Dakine Wrist Guard
  • Pros:  Will stop your wrist getting broken/sore from shocks.
  • Cons:  Poorly designed - the muscle behind your thumb on your palm causes these to not sit straight down your wrist making them very uncomfortable. I found that while one was comfortable the other side really dug into the webbing between your thumb and forefinger. The material gets wet and stays wet - making riding less than pleasant at the end of the day with your gloves more like a swamp than dry and warm.

Experience:  
"Best i've used" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Pro-tec IPS Wrist Guard
  • Pros:  Bought these on mountain to replace Dakine ones. These are so comfortably you barely notice them there. Very lightweight and dont restrict you as much as others do. Fits very well under even tight gloves.
  • Cons:  The plastic inserts slip out about 3-4mm every few days so you have to push them back in or they are uncomfortable. The strap around the wrist needs more velcro - i have skinny wrists and found these slightly loose (but not uncomfortable.

Experience:  
"Lightweight, warm" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 RED Hi-Fi
  • Pros:  Ultra light weight, keeps you warm, but not hot.
  • Cons:  side pads make my ears a bit sore after a day's riding. Clip isnt the easiest to operate with gloves on.

Experience:   Keeps your brains in, what more could you want?
"Sweet bag!" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Low Roller Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  Super padded, waterproof, TONS of room, ultra durable, big wheels. Goes down steps at airports and accomodation pretty nicely, just nudge it and it slides on down! Security got pretty annoyed though.
  • Cons:  the shoulder stap is annoying. just take it off. Top two pockets are entirely usless in my opinion.

Experience:   Fitted 2 boards (1 with bindings, one w/o), boots, pants, jacket, 2 hoodies, thick jacket, jeans, wax, scraper, helmet, goggles (inside helmet), wrist guards (inside helmet) all inside the 157 bag with 158 boards. Nothing stops this when wheeling it around, steps, escalators, big ditches, deep snow - dont even bother to slow down just haul it on through.
"Not really a fan" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Lightweight Thermal Crew
  • Pros:  Lightweight, wicking.
  • Cons:  Dont really like the feel of the fabric, it's also not the best fit unless your shaped more like a box than a person.

Experience:   Do yourself a favour and get Merino wool micro fibre. Costs a bunch more but you can wear it for more than a week without it smelling.
"Best backpack ever" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Mission
  • Pros:  This is my favourite backpack, great for using on a pushbike during my daily commute, it's very comfortable to wear without getting your back super sweaty and hot. Padding in the right places prevents you getting sore if you have odd shapes inside the bag. Has a bunch of little pouches in the front. It's fairly low profile is also nice.
  • Cons:  Wouldnt recommend it for a laptop however if you're doing anything other than just walking around.

Experience:   Fits nicely onto overhead lockers on aircraft and coaches - i take it with me shooting, to work, snowboarding, on my pushbike and hiking. Fantastic!
"Not that impressed" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Gore Tex Under
  • Pros:  Durable palm, velcro on the wrist keeps out most snow.
  • Cons:  I found that these rarely stayed "under". Cuffed gloves stay under my jacket better leaving me warmer and dryer. Liners are useless - they have a grip pattern on them which makes it almost impossible to get your hand into the glove while wearing the liner. If you want to use liners, take the next size up.

Experience:  
"Nice" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Smith Fuse
  • Pros:  These goggles never fogged up and are very clear to look through. Snow on the lense didnt really affect visibility at all. Nice and warm, very durable, quite comfortable even with glasses on underneath (once positioned correctly).
  • Cons:  Clip thing on the strap, sits right where a helmet strap clip would be so can be a bit of a pain to clip in. Anything above 0C without wind or moving around, my glasses would fog up inside (even with anti fog treatment).

Experience:  
"Pretty sweet" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Cymbal Hoodie
  • Pros:  Lightweight, really nice fleecy feel inside, very warm.
  • Cons:  Laces on the hood are a far too long.

Experience:   As mentioned, it's a little bigger than expected but that's fine by me.
"Very warm" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Buffer
  • Pros:  Very warm socks, and super comfortable! Great for wearing any time during winter, not just for boarding!
  • Cons:  NONE!

Experience:  
"Very nice" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Phase
  • Pros:  Found the material in the black/brown socks a little too harsh - the white socks were incredibly comfortable though. Very nice socks to wear
  • Cons:  Pick up dirt very easily

Experience:  
"Burton Custom ICS Review" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Custom
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Carving,Groomers,Jumps
  • Pros:  Durable, Easy to carve, Well known brand
  • Cons:  Top sheet scratches

Experience:   Incredibly fast when you point straight down any slope - found the edges catching a bit more than other boards i've used however which led to a few stacks as the board kicked out to one side from rear of the board catching. Top sheet received a few scratches from impatient people in lift queues pushing up against you. Not really a beginner board by any means, it's much to fast but a hell of a lot of fun which you can quickly grow into!
"Burton Triad EST Review" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Triad EST
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Boot hold, Durable, Good construction quality, Comfortable, Well known brand, Popular model, Easy installation
  • Fit:  must be adjusted smaller

Experience:   Very comfortable, however found after about 6hrs my forward foot would go a bit dead, being that it doesnt come out of the binding at all. The padding on the straps is really great though. Only had one problem with these - the screw on the left binding's front strap came undone due to vibrations from going over a lot of ice all day which made me have an epic stack in which i tore a leg muscle. Always check your screws before going out. I managed a few on mountain adjustments of these very easy, they install quickly and easily and really let you set them up however you want! Great bindings.
"Very good!" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton 3L Hybrid
  • Pros:  Breathable, Durable, Lightweight, Warm, Waterproof
  • Description:  WEATHER: Spring Day, Blue Bird Powder Day, Cloudy and Cold, Snow and Rain Mixed, Storming and White Out, CHEST: Feels true to size, BODY: Feels true to length, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

Experience:   Coldest i've used this in was about -8C with 2 thin merino wool thermal layers (one short sleeve, one full length). It was a little chilly however at about -6C it was very comfortable. At 1-2C i needed to open the vents under the arm pits. In 110km/h winds, with natural snow and snow making in progress at -2c it was very comfortable, no wind gets through and you feel exactly the same as on a windless day - fantastic! Ultra light weight, it's barely thicker than a cotton tshirt so it moves around really easily and doesnt restrict you in any way. The jacket zips onto Buton pants, so while my friends had cold snow up their back and down their pants i was dry and warm. There is tight elastic "belt" around the front that buttons together and keeps anything from coming up your front or sides, great for those face plants where you go board first down the mountain! All the zips are waterproof too - you could probably go swimming in this without getting very wet! Has quite a few pockets, could have done with 1 or two inside the jacket for things you want to keep warm. The two pockets on either side at the bottom have clips in them to hold your keys (fantastic idea!) which are on an elastic strap, so you can get into your appartment/accomodation without hassle, and no chance of loosing your keys. There is a velcro closing pocket on the left side of the chest that is good for a radio and a vertical zipping pocket below which stores a truckload of stuff in it (had a pack of tissues, glasses wipes, camera, phone, glove liners, old lift pass in there). Across from that is another vertical pocket that i found a bit of a pain to access.
