"TOO BIG" 6/30/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Analog Yuma Reservation
  • Pros:  Soft and cheap.
  • Cons:  Too big. Not true to size. Sorry but I bought a size 34 and it's about the same fit as a 36. I think all on Analogs clothing run too big. I thought the board shorts would be different since size is a very important factor. I was wrong.

Experience:   Go two sizes down if you want your shorts to stay on.
"Not true to size" 6/30/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Analog Martinez
  • Pros:  Cheap and comes with a bottle opener
  • Cons:  About two sizes larger than normal.

Experience:   I like my board short to stay on and I figure so do most other people. I usually wear a size 34 but these are about a size 36.

"Good Socks" 5/15/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Emblem
  • Pros:  Warm enough but not sweaty warm.

Experience:   Great deal when it's 70% off otherwise a little pricey at retail.
"Good for spring" 5/15/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Helly Hasen Chico
  • Pros:  Windproof, light and slim fitting.
  • Cons:  Now very warm or waterproof. Soaks up the snow.

Experience:   Pockets are fleece lined. Would be good for spring or as a mid layer.
"Perfect for the car" 5/14/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Space Sack Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  CHEAP!!! Big enough to fit a couple of boards, one pair of boots and one set of bindings. Simple and gets the job done.
  • Cons:  Not for air travel. It's $10 what do you expect.

Experience:   Standard bag. Would have given it 3 stars but got an extra for the price.
"Works great!" 5/13/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Wheelie Cargo Luggage Bag
  • Pros:  Several compartments and different way to get to them. It even has one zippered section that works perfect for shoes.
  • Cons:  It's a soft bag so if it's not full it sags a little and won't stand up.

Experience:  
"Best boxers I own" 4/30/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Lightweight Thermal Boxers
  • Pros:  Soft and comfortable. Keeps you nice and dry. Even comes with hanger. lol
  • Cons:  Pricey unless its 70% off.

Experience:   Doesn't bunch up and seems to be true to size.
"BUY THESE" 3/19/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Flux Titan
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Durable, Good construction quality, Lightweight, Comfortable, Easy installation
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   THE most comfortable bindings you will ever ride!!! Completely tool free and built to last. High backs are just the right height and excess straps don't stick out. BUY THESE NOW!!! You won't regret it.
"OMG!!!" 3/3/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Malolo
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Powder
  • Pros:  Easy to carve, poppy, Stable at high speeds, Strong edgehold, Soft

Experience:   This is a great board. Doesn't take away all back leg burn but it's amazing what this thing can do in the powder. What's most impressive is that with the stance set back you can still carve like your regular board. On my other boards I would set the stance back but notice a noticeable drop in carving ability. The back edge is decreased due to a set back stance and your edge hold on the rear is less and a little squirly. This thing somehow eliminates that and ride perfect. I hope that mad sense.
"Just have to settle" 3/3/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Cartel EST
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Lightweight, Well known brand, Easy installation
  • Cons:  Uncomfortable
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   Ok maybe I'm a little spoiled but Flux just makes the most comfortable bindings ever. These were better than the missions but the ankle strap creates a pressure point the the buckle. I've let many others try my flux bindings and everyone loves the comfort over all other bindings, so I know it's not just me. Every person whom used my flux bindings also went out and bought a set and ditched their burton, flow, drake, K2, Ride and others I can't remember. If it weren't for the fact that the Malolo only comes with ICS and the EST universal base plate is a joke, I would have stuck with flux.
"Good Backup" 2/27/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Binding Hardware
  • Pros:  Cheap spare.

Experience:   Keep an extra set of these cuz you know the resorts will charge you at least $2 for each one.
"It's a scaper" 2/27/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Tri Scraper Tool
  • Pros:  Six edges and an edge scraper. What more do you need. Nice and solid with no flex.
  • Cons:  Dulls rather quick but so do all the others.

Experience:  
"Quick Clip One " 2/26/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 RED Audex Audio Ear Accessory
  • Pros:  Works well.
  • Cons:  Wires are annoying. I replaced these with the motorrola BT head set.

Experience:   These will NOT work with quick clip two helmets. Kinda annoying that they changed the standard and now your expensive headset will not attach to the newer helmets.
"Just get a wider board." 2/26/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Palmer Standard Plates
  • Pros:  Might give you a little more clearance and a little more power.
  • Cons:  Raises you center of gravity and just adds more parts to a board then there should be.

Experience:   Never used these but I understand how they are supposed to work. Given the disadvantage of raising your center of gravity to gain clearance and power, I doubt the trade off it worth it or even noticeable.
"Didn't notice much of a difference" 2/26/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Superfeet Footbeds F
  • Pros:  Adds support to arch and it's supposed to help heel lift.
  • Cons:  Expensive and they need to be trimmed to size.

Experience:   Didn't notice much of a difference but they didn't cause any issues either. I have always run good boots so I guess this has less effect.
"Does what it's supposed to do" 2/26/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Adjustable Tuning Iron 110v
  • Pros:  Heats up quick and stays at a consistent temp. Cheaper than most irons that come out of the same factory but with another brand stamped on it.
  • Cons:  nonw

Experience:   Don't buy obj, swix or any of those other brands. This is the same thing but without the higher cost.
"GO BIG" 2/26/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Gore Tex
  • Pros:  Cheap, warm and does the job.
  • Cons:  Go one size up. This years gloves and mittens seem to all be at least one size smaller than normal. Need longer gauntlets for those pow days.

Experience:   GET A LARGER SIZE.
"Zippers got some issues" 2/26/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) 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:   I'd give it five stars but Burton needs to work on their QA. The zippers on these are too long to connect to my jacket. I have at least one inch of zipper length left on the pants compared to the jacket. Also the riri zippers are hard to close. You need two hands and no gloves to make them work. I do like the fact that they added a clip button to the pant legs so you don't get the drag rips on the cuff of your pants.
"Perfect Fit" 2/17/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton SL-X
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Heel hold, Comfortable, Easy lacing, Durable, Traction, Good quality, Warm, Well known brand
  • Cons:  Difficult in & out
  • Fit:  average

Experience:   These are great and I think they have a better fit for me than the Ions. Love the lacing but it's still a bitch to get in and out. Still new so they might become easier with a few more days on them. Only time will tell.
"Nice Ride" 2/17/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Custom
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Powder
  • Pros:  Durable, lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Popular model, Popular on mountain, Well known brand

Experience:   It has a good feel to it but I wish I got the wide version. I wear a size 11 and I get the occasional toe drag. Other than that it's a great board.
"Flus is the $hit!!!" 2/4/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Flux Emblem
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Durable, Good construction quality, Comfortable
  • Fit:  fits fine

"LOVE IT!!!" 2/4/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Palmer Carbon Circle II
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Powder
  • Pros:  Durable, lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Stable at high speeds, Strong edgehold

Experience:   This is my favorite board to ride. I stay away form the park due to too many injuries but this this thing can handle everything I throw at it. Might be a little stiff for most but once you figure it out it's really fun to ride.
"Burton T6 Review" 2/4/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Burton T6
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Powder
  • Pros:  lightweight, poppy, Stable at high speeds, Strong edgehold, Well known brand

Experience:   Cons: This thing is fragile. Super light but took a core shot the third day riding it. Hit a rock and that's all she wrote. RIP
"Great Goggles but....." 2/4/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Oakley A Frame-MattteWht/H.I.Persimmon
  • Pros:  High lens is great for those overcast days. They have yet to fog. Nice soft foam fit.
  • Cons:  Wish they made them for larger faces.

Experience:   I gotta big head and these things would be perfect if they made it a little larger. Wisdoms work great for me but the these seem to create a better seal.
"Burton Ion Review" 2/4/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Ion
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Easy lacing, Traction, Good quality, Warm, Well known brand
  • Cons:  Difficult in & out
  • Fit:  average

Experience:   Wished they made wide models of this. I will never go back to regular laces.
"HUGE!!!" 2/4/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Wheelie Locker
  • Pros:  More space than you will ever need. I really like the separate bags for boots and bindings. Two sets of bindings fit perfectly in the binding bag. Really well made.
  • Cons:  A little long to be rolling around. Still trying to figure out the tool bag and how where to velcro the thing. Once loaded it's heavy!!! If it ever gets lost your out some serious $$.

Experience:   Fit four boards, three bindings, one set of boots, goggle case (four goggles), jacket, pants, three sets of layers and some HGH just so you can load it into your car.
"Kick A$$" 1/17/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Oakley Wisdom
  • Pros:  Almost impossible to fog, oakley lense (crisp) and great field of vision.
  • Cons:  Not a perfect fit if you have a wider face. A frames seem to work better on my face and I wear a XL helmet.

Experience:   I own three of these things and an A frame. Best googles I have ever purchased. Sorry but not one can beat oakley when it comes to optics.

  • Name: 2007 Burton Blunt
  • Pros:  Warm
  • Cons:  Runs big and the metal tag feel off. Looks better on website.

  • Pros:  Removable Hood, good fit, plenty of pockets, breathable and stylish.

Experience:   I wear it around town and on the slopes. One of my better investments of the season.
"Burton Cargo Bag" 11/19/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Burton Cargo Duffle Bag
  • Pros:  Huge and well made. Plenty of ventilation.
  • Cons:  Not as pictured. They have the 2008 bag in the picture. The 2007 bag lacks the two end pockets with the handles.

Experience:   Different than picture but still nice and a steal at that price.
