"Fun, fun, fun" 4/21/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Reverse Crew Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Off Trail,Powder,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Fast, Nimble, Etc, etc, etc
  • Cons:  none yet,

Experience:   Okay, I only spent 1 1/2 hours on it and conditions were not optimal, but I have ridden enough different, high-quality boards (Bataleon Goliath, Head iCT Intelligence, Head iCT Team) to get a feel for this board offer an opinion. If you read the rest of the reviews on here, you'll find that the common pros are speed, maneuverability, pop, price, and just an overall enjoyable riding experience. The only con, so far, has been a topsheet that scratches easily. All I can say after my 90+ minutes on it is that I am really looking forward to spending a lot more time on it next year. I'm certain it's going to be a great off-trail board. It appears to be very versatile, but I've got an alpine board for when I want to just carve. It is very fast. It took a couple of runs to adjust to the squirreliness of the reverse camber combined with the sintered base, but once adjusted, what a blast. I can't see myself reaching a skill level that I couldn't enjoy this board, and I think I'm a competent boarder now. I'm not a park guy, so I don't know what pop is, but I like trees and bowls and playing around on the groomers, and this board will suit me fine. My only concerns are the topsheet softness and it's effect on the board's overall durability and what the long-term durability of the base and sides will be. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy every minute I have finding out the answers to my questions. Thanks.
"Decent Binding" 12/14/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Flow Flite 3
  • Pros:  Solid, Comfortable, Ease of entry
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   No bells or whistles, just a solid all-around entry-level binding. Good construction. I think I like the highback on these better than the one on the M-9's. They are definitely easier to get into. I can't say that there are any real cons. Just know what you are getting with these and set your expectations accordingly.
"Great Backpack" 12/12/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Heli Pro
  • Pros:  Stout, Versatile/adjustable, Comfortable

Experience:   What the specs don't mention: camera pouch on the side waist belt, fully enclosed drinking tube port (inside the left shoulder strap), contoured, foam-padded back panel, ice axe sleeve, compression straps & horizontal board carry. It's a minimalist pack, for sure. Great design & materials. I rate it 4 stars because its the first dedicated snowboard pack I've owned and have nothing to compare it to. Great pack, just the same.
"Great Hoodie" 11/27/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2013 Burton Bonded Hoodie
  • Pros:  Warm, Comfortable, Great looking
  • Cons:  None found yet,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Comfortable, but on the snug side.

Experience:   I bought this just for casual wear. I had originally purchased an XL, but it was a little too comfortable for around town use (I have a 42 chest). I would suggest sizing up for those who want a loose fit. Size L, which is what I normally wear, has what I would consider more of a normal fit, though maybe not to the point of being a slim fit. I've been surprised by how many compliments it gets while I'm out and about. (I have the red-and-black plaid version) Maybe down the road I'll take it out on the hill, but for now I won't let it get past the parking lot. Nice, nice hoodie.
"Might be the last snowboard I ever buy..." 11/19/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2014 Jones Hovercraft Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,Off Trail,Powder
  • Pros:  NIMBLE!!, FLOAT!!, MELLOW MAG!!
  • Cons:  Quiver board,

Experience:   First off, I actually own the 12/13 model, which differs only in the topsheet and, possibly, the beveled edges mentioned in the description. I said that it may be the last 'board I buy because I ride a teleboard almost exclusively when I'm stuck on groomers (which is most of the time) and I have a beat-up Arbor Crossbow for a rock board. I'm not a park guy at all. I like to carve or ride in the deep stuff, but even if I reach a place where I can ride the teleboard in all conditions, I won't give up the Hovercraft. The teleboard will never give me the feeling in powder that the Hovercraft does. For riding in powder the 'Craft is awesome. I've never ridden a dedicated powder board before, so I've not tried a Fish or Powder Snake or anything else. I'm so happy with the Hovercraft, I'm not interested in anything else. It eliminated back leg burn completely and is so quick to turn. I got the 156, and it keeps my 200lbs on top of the snow, no problem. It just glides. The 156 is 26cm wide, but it's still a good ride on the groomers. Because I've not tried any other powder boards, I can't say it's the best out there, but I will say it's worth a serious look/demo. Read up on it. There are very few reviewers who have anything negative to say about it and there are some reviews by professional riders who rave on it.
"Very Good Glove, Great Price" 1/26/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton GoreTex Snowboard Gloves Men's
  • Pros:  Gore-Tex, Fit Well,
  • Cons:  Questionable Durability,

Experience:   I have the over-the-cuff model. These are good gloves, especially for the price. Gore-Tex alone says a lot. If you get a little snow in the glove, no problem. It's forgotten in minutes. I have to question the durability simply because a couple of stitches broke on the left index finger the first year I had them. I use them as back-ups, but still use them several times a year (for 5 years now) and the tear has not gotten any worse, so that's good. They were the first decent gloves I purchased after I started boarding and I've been very happy with them. I would like to get more to lay aside.
"Very Good Jacket" 12/30/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 686 Smarty Uzi Youth
  • Pros:  Loose fit, Well ventilated, Waterproof
  • Cons:  Warm, Heavy,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Loose, Comfortable

Experience:   Nice jacket. Not a Spring shell, though. Of all the shells I've owned, it's the warmest. (Or maybe it just doesn't breathe that well) It's heavier than my other shells, too. The thumb-holes on the wrist gaiters are awkwardly placed. I like the style and it's kept me dry. Hood, which works well over my helmet, is removable, the powder skirt is not. Zipper pulls are almost over-sized and easy to operate with gloves. All in all, it's been a great purchase and I expect I'll be using it for a long time.
"Stout Binding" 11/10/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Head PX 10
  • Pros:  Stiff, Adjustable. Very adjustable., Easy to adfust
  • Cons:  Heavy, Capstrap is really a strap,
  • Flex:  stiff

Experience:   Pretty stiff, pretty heavy, very solid. I have the '08 (sm) and the '10 (med) model. The '08s are very much the same. I've provided (2) links below that provide more detailed info. Features are essentially the same. My thoughts on a few of the features- Adjustability/customization:The straps and forward lean are toolless. Highback rotation and height adustment has one screw for both. 'Plug-n-play': Allows several degrees (plus/minus from 0) of binding angle adjustment w/one screw. Downside is that that is all the angle adjustment it offers. Toe-ramp length is one-screw adjustable, while mounted. Straps: Ankle straps are comfortable (though not as comfy as the '10) and solid. So-called capstraps are not very 'cappy', at least not for me. Don't know if they can be upgraded or replaced by another brand. That said, I really like these bindings. Edge-2-edge is very quick and they are comfortable overall. I hope they prove to be as durable as they are responsive. http://www.dogfunk.com/head-snowboards-usa-px-10-snowboard-binding http://www.evo.com/snowboard-bindings/head-px-10.aspx
"Very Good Goggle" 4/18/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Oakley Proven Snowboard
  • Pros:  Ventilation, Helmet Compatible, Comfortable
  • Cons:  Not much for looks,

Experience:   I bought these in the OTG version w/ persimmon lens. I still wear them more than any of my other goggles, even though I now wear contacts on the hill. They are comfortable, fit well w/ my Red Mutiny helmet, and I've never had any issues w/ fogging. Ever. Not once, and I probably have about 30 days/nights wearing them. The OTG version is not the most stylish (2 thumbs down), but the fit and comfort (on my face, anyway) can't be beat. Field of vision is good, too. At least, I've never felt I lacked in FOV while riding. I also like the rubberized inside of the strap.
"Great Helmet" 4/18/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Red Mutiny Snowboard Helmet
  • Pros:  Fit, Low-profile, Protection
  • Cons:  Little customization of fit,

Experience:   This is my 3rd season w/ the Mutiny (black, sz LG) and I'm still happy w/ it. If I were to raise any issue, it's that the bill (which is stylish, IMO) doesn't allow for easy perching of goggles off the face. (I know, because my goggles blew off my helmet 1/3 of the way up the 8377' Northwest Express chair at Mt. Bachelor :oP) Other than that, no problems. I listed lack of customization of fit as a con, but it fits me as well as any helmet I've tried. I cannot count the times I've gone out and forgotten to clip the chinstrap and despite more than a couple of highlight reel falls w/ the chinstrap off, it's never come off. I've slammed my head at least twice without incident. The first time scared me, until I realized I wasn't hurt. Taste in style is personal, but I think it's a good-looking helmet and it's low-profile. Bern helmets have me the mushroom-head look, but not the Mutiny. The ventilation has been fine, too. I was worried about it when I purchased it, because it's pretty minimal and I heat up pretty quick. It's comfortable and I've had no goggle fit issues w/ the 4 different pairs of goggles I've worn w/ it. All in all, I think it's a fine helmet that I would buy again. It does what it's supposed to do and looks pretty good doing it.
"Good, but not the most durable glove" 1/1/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton GoreTex Snowboard Gloves Men's
  • Pros:  Warm, Dry, breathable, Fit
  • Cons:  Stitching not very durable, Gaunlet not long enough,

Experience:   Bought them 3 yrs ago, and have used for back-ups since the first season. Stitching on left index finger started fraying by the end of the first season from knocking snow out of trailing binding before strapping in at the top of the lift. Hands dry out pretty quick inside the glove, if you get them damp while out on the hill. Materials seem to be pretty good otherwise and I like the fit, too. I guess I figured that if they're going to go to the trouble of making them w/Gore-Tex, they'd be more durable. Also, the gauntlet isn't quite long enough to keep my sleeves from pulling out, so I have to tuck them in. All in all, if you can avoid wear and tear on the stitching, they are a good deal at sale pricing.
"A Good Deal" 6/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Gravis Metro
  • Pros:  Nice Details, Nice Looking,

Experience:   First off, I want to say that I returned this product, not because I had any concerns about it's quality, but because it simply wasn't what I was looking for. It didn't have the capacity I was looking for in a backpack. So, I can't speak about it's durability, just a visual assessment. The SS description says it's a school backpack, and that is probably what it is most suited for. It is a very nice-looking pack. So nice-looking that I'd hate to junk it up. I really liked the Artillery color. The back is very well padded, as is the laptop compartment. The zippers and overall construction look solid and the zipper pulls are large and add to its appearance. The main compartment and the outer pockets each have several stash pockets inside. The main compartment is not very large, however. I was looking for something to carry extra gear to the mountain and it probably wouldn't hold much more than a couple of articles of clothing. A shell jacket took up about half of the main compartment. That said, it is a very nice pack, nice-looking enough I'd hate to get the thing dirty. SS pricing only adds to it appeal.
"Good, solid binding" 4/21/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Flow M9
  • Pros:  Versatile, Solid, Comfortable
  • Cons:  Fit, Ease of entry, Price
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I've owned these for 2 years. These are sturdy, comfortable bindings. Great for all-mountain riding. My only real complaints are the ease of entry and the fit. By that, I mean that my Head 7.20 boots do not fit the binding, even though they're within the stipulated size parameters. My Salomon Maori's fit perfectly, however. As for the ease of entry, I also own a pair of Flow Flight 3's and they are easier to get into. The problem I've had with my M9's is that the highback won't lay down like the Flight 3's. All in all, a good binding, if you can get them on sale.
"Nice fit, nice pants" 4/21/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Foursquare Baraveto
  • Pros:  Water-proof, Breathable, Warm
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  S
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Like a pair of loose-fit jeans

Experience:   I bought these pants for colder-weather conditions, since the light insulation, but with the 4 vents I can drive a couple of hours to the mountain with them on and not get sweaty or overheated. And I can overheat easy. I don't need much in the way of layers. They seem well-constructed. I took a seat on several icy heelside turns, and they're not showing any wear. I'll be spending many days on the hill in these. They were a great buy.
