"Solitude 169" 4/24/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2010 Flow Solitude
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Powder
  • Pros:  Wiskey Tech, Rocker for float, Taper for float
  • Cons:  Too flexible, Too Press-able, Soft Tail

Experience:   I got the 169 (2010). I am about 6'3 250 and this board is way too soft for me. Haven't ridden it yet, but flexing it around on the carpet I can easily press it. It is more flexible both tip to tail and torsionally than my old K2 Format Wide 165 (after 40 days riding on it). The tail is also softer than expected and I get very little pop out of it. Basically, I would only use this board in fresh untracked powder conditions. I would be afraid it would fold in half if I tried to bomb any variable/cruddy terrian. It would probably be a good board for someone 50 lbs lighter. I expected a 169 to be a lot beefier.
"Good Thermal" 4/10/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Midweight 3/4 Pants Men's
  • Pros:  Warm, Dry, 3/4 length
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  As expected

Experience:   This is a good quality thermal. Mabey a little on the thin side of midweight, but definitely thicker than my Burton lightweight thermal shant. Also the sizing runs smaller than the Burton's I have. The 3/4 length is great. goes down to about the top of your boot, so no bunching up inside them.
"Good Glove" 2/21/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Pow Royal Snowboard Gloves Men's
  • Pros:  Good fit / flex, Comfortable, Mid Temp Ranges
  • Cons:  Cold Temps,

Experience:   I have ridden with these several times this year. They work well for most days, but for night riding, they aren't quite as warm as my old Dakine Titans. They have similar insulation values, but the Titans have a looser fit, which contributes to the extra warmth. I rode with the royals in wet snow 1 day and they got a little damp inside. Since then I have applied same Nikwax and they have stayed dry.
"Good supportive insole" 4/11/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Superfeet Red Hot Footbeds
  • Pros:  Support & Alignment, Increaed heel hold, Less foot fatigue

Experience:   These insoles are way better than anything that comes stock in a pair of boarding boots. The arch is not as high as some insoles I have tried; a pair of SOLE Slim Sport's that I have in my work shoes are higher (I have a very high arch). The extra support and stiffness of these insoles means you will have less foot fatigue at the end of the day. They are taller in the back than stock footbeds, so they take up volume in your boots and can help give you better heel hold. I have not noticed any difference in my foot warmth while riding.
"Yes Please" 4/9/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Bronco Glove
  • Pros:  Dry, Warm,

Experience:   Dakine Goretex gloves get two thumbs up from me. Seem to last well, and my hands are always dry.
"Nice Supportive Boot" 4/9/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Rome Folsom Snowboard Boots Kid's
  • Pros:  Stiff/Supportive, Good Heel Hold, Well Padded Liner
  • Cons:  A little narrow in the forefoot,
  • Fit:  soft
  • Flex:  stiff
  • Shoe Size:  13(slightly loose)
  • Boot Size:  12

Experience:   I tried this boot on but did not buy (I ended up going with the Malamutes). It is on the stiff side but felt a little softer to the toeside than the DriverX, Pledge, Malamute, or T1. This could probably be made stiffer if you really wrenched on the laces (the other boots listed have non-traditional lacing systems that are easier to get ultra-tight). The liner was very comfortable (well padded). The heel hold was great and was aided by having a quality heel harness(2nd only to the T1, which has an internal BOA harness). The only thing I disliked was at the forefoot, just behind the toes, it seemed a little narrow (and I do not have a wide foot). Again, these are my impressions from trying it on, not riding. There were no other reviews so I thought I'd throw in my 2 cents.
"It's Get You Started" 4/9/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Moto
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Easy Lacing,
  • Cons:  No heel hold, Feet get wet, Liner packs out a lot
  • Fit:  stiff
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  13
  • Boot Size:  12.5 (oh wait...not an option)

Experience:   These are the boots that I started out with and they worked fine, but once I started to go faster the heel was too loose and they were not responsive enough for my all-mountain needs. My feet were also pretty wet at the end of every day riding. They are comfortable (well padded) and will suit the beginner or casual rider, but don't leave a lot of room for progression.
"Trusty Pants!" 4/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Bonfire Arc
  • Pros:  Great Fit, Adjustable Waist, Glove Pocket
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Just Right

Experience:   I've actually got the 09' version but they are basically the same. I put these pants through some good tests this year (well mother nature did anyway). The horrible snow conditions really put them through the ringer. I had multiple days where the bottom of the mountain was raining, and my legs never got wet. I also went sliding down some icy diamond runs a few times and they never ripped or showed any signs of wear. The glove pocket should be standard on every pant imo, it is so handy to be able to put your gloves there instead of setting them down or hanging them somewhere when you are not riding. The fit is just right. You can bend without feeling like you will blow out the seams. The sizing chart is accurate and you can adjust the waist as needed. My only complant was that the fake buttons on the pockets were like snowball magnets, but it looks like they were eliminated for 2010.
"Thank You Smith Optics!" 4/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Smith Prodigy
  • Pros:  Fog Free, Large Field of View, Da Bomb!

Experience:   I used to have problems with my goggles fogging up all the time, but not with the Prodigy. The only time they ever fogged was when I was hiking to a ridge on a warm spring day, and even then they cleared up after riding a few feet (great venting). They have a large field of view. I've got the RC36 lens and it is not my favorite. It provides a good amount of light for most conditions but I don't seem to get as good of definition as with my old rose color lens.
