"Watch" 7/2/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2012 Neff Flava Watch
  • Pros:  Cheap,
  • Cons:  None yet,

Experience:   This is a really nice watch on the cheap. It is nothing special but for the price it is a good deal. I also like the size of the watch-not too big or really small, just right.
"Great Mit" 3/26/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton GoreTex Mittens
  • Pros:  Very warm, Very Comfy,
  • Cons:  NONE,

Experience:   I usually dont like mittens but I got a pair of the Gore-Tex Burton mitts this season and love them. They are perfect on those cold, windy days. I really like how waterproof they are due to gore-tex material. If you have cold hands you need these mittens. I would not use these everyday on the mountain but have lighter gloves for warm days.
"Great Pants-Great Value" 2/26/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Analog Asset Snowboard Pants Men's
  • Pros:  Durable, Comfortable, Great Price
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  True to size

Experience:   I bought last year’s Asset pants and love them!!! I have about 50 days on the mountain in these pants and they are still holding up great. I live in Colorado and have never had problems with the pants here. However, when I was in Whistler last season these pants did get a little wet after a full day of riding in wet snow (luckily I brought extra pair of pants). This was not a major issue but something to note since the waterproof/breathability rating is only 10K. If you ride heavy, wet snow most of the time you may want to spend the money and get gore-tex pants. Gore-tex is pretty expensive stuff so I prefer to have less expensive pants here in Colorado since I replace them every season or every other season. Bottom line- these are great pants.
"Great boot but not for me" 2/24/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Burton Ion Snowboard Boots Men's
  • Pros:  Stiff, Comfortable,
  • Cons:  Too stiff for my riding style,
  • Flex:  stiff
  • Shoe Size:  11
  • Boot Size:  11

Experience:   I got a pair of Burton Ions from a buddy, they were too big for him. I usually ride Burton Shaun White boot and I did not like the Ions because they are too stiff for me. I like a softer boot and the Ions did not feel right for me. I have many friends that like a really stiff boot and I would recommend the Ion to them. Burton makes great/durable boots and I would recommend a Burton boot to anyone. I have wide feet and Burton boots are all very comfortable and last forever. Bottom line, these boots are not for me because they are too stiff but if you like a stiff boot then you will really like these. That is why I gave them 4 stars.
"My favorite boot" 2/24/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Shaun White
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Affordable, Lightweight
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  11
  • Boot Size:  11

Experience:   This is my second pair of Burton Shaun White boots. I love them and would buy a new pair if they were still making this model. Burton discontinued this boot. I have wide feet and this boot is perfect for me. I also like a boot that is not too stiff. I have ridden the Burton Ion and those are way too stiff for me. If you like a boot with a little flex these are perfect for you. If you like a really stiff boot you need to keep looking. I have never had any problems with my feet getting cold in these boots. They are extremely durable, I have about 80 days on my new Shaun White boots and they are holding up great. The only reason I will need new boots is because I have stinky feet and my boots are starting to smell like a porta-potty baking in the sun and a Phish concert!!
"Great Binding" 2/10/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton C60 Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Light weight, Very stiff and responsive,
  • Cons:  Expensive,
  • Flex:  stiff

Experience:   I have been riding the c60 for many years and love this binding. Very stiff and very responsive. I ride the binding on all my boards. I also ride Burton Cartel which I really like too but prefer the C60. The only problem is C60 is expensive and is not in 2012 product offering. Looks like they are replacing c60 with another binding which makes me sad.
"Poor quality bag" 2/6/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Space Sack Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  Cheap,
  • Cons:  Cheaply made, Fell apart after 2nd use,

Experience:   I bought one of these bags to use when flying to other states to ride. I took it on 2 trips, one to Utah and one to Tahoe. After 2 flights it has ripped in 3 places. The largest rip is about 3 inches. The rips are along the bottom of the bag where it contacts the snowboards edges. I did not pay much for this bag but would not recommend it to anybody looking to take it on the plane to travel. It might work to take gear around town/to local ski hill but is not made for air travel. I will be contacting Burton to see what they can do but I bet they tell me they can’t do anything for me. I do have another snowboard bag that I use when taking more than one board and it has held up much better than the Burton. Bottom line, I would not recommend this bag.
"Sherlock 2011" 1/29/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Burton Sherlock Snowboard
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Low Speeds,Powder
  • Pros:  Playful,
  • Cons:  Little Soft,

Experience:   I picked up a 160cm 2011 Burton Sherlock a few weeks back only because it was brand new and really cheap. I have not ridden a Burton board in 4 years or so but I liked the tech the Sherlock offers and I have heard good things about this board. This board is rocker/camber tech and is a really fun and playful board. I have only ridden it 2 days but really like the playfulness of the board. I also really like how light the board is. I usually ride Never Summer, Lib Tech and Gnu boards and this Sherlock is the lightest board I own. Really interested in using it in some pow! Now for my complaints about the Sherlock. First, this board has a much softer flex than I am used to. This is more a preference thing but I feel the Sherlock is less stable at high speed compared to my other boards and tends to wash out easier. I like this board but it will not replace my Never Summer and will probably be used as a rock board and early/late season board. Probably not coming in the backcountry anytime soon.
"Lib Tech Skate Banana 159cm" 12/30/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Wide Snowboard Yellow/Green 153 Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Playful Board, Fun to Ride, Great all conditions board
  • Cons:  No full wrap edge,

Experience:   I love this board!!!! If you have not ridden a skate banana or are new to Rocker technology, you should buy this board. The skate banana is very playful and can rip the park then hit the backcountry and float the pow. I used to take my old banana on backcountry trips because it floats so well. I usually ride a 161cm board but the 159 skate banana is perfect in most conditions for me. The only thing I don’t like about the banana like all Lib Techs is that they don’t have full wrap edge. My tip and tail are getting dinged up pretty quick but it does not affect the board performance. Get yourself a banana.
"Good Glove" 12/29/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Approach
  • Pros:  Affordable, Warm,
  • Cons:  None,

Experience:   I love this glove. Perfect warmth for most days and very comfortable. I would recommend this glove to anybody. Only drawback is that on really cold days my fingers get a little cold. This glove stays pretty dry here in the Colorado snow. Might be an issues in wetter conditions but is perfect for me.
"Burton Cargo Pant" 12/29/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Cargo Snowboard Pants Men's
  • Pros:  Affordable, Comofrtable, Good Fit
  • Cons:  Not Very Durable,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  True to size

Experience:   I got a pair of Burton Cargo Pants on sale. They are great pants and held up well for about a season (40 days). After that the seams started falling apart and they don’t repel water very well anymore. For the price I would get another pair but lower end Burton gear does not usually hold up for very long. I will say that the sizing is perfect and these pants are very comfortable and cargo pockets are very convenient.
"Dragon DX Goggle" 12/2/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dragon DX Goggles
  • Pros:  Great Goggle at a Great Price,
  • Cons:  None,

Experience:   I have 2 pairs of the Dragon DX and could not be happier with them. I have a Giro helmet and they fit better than any goggle I have used. Would recommend these to anybody looking for a quality goggle and great price.
"Burton Cargo Pants" 12/1/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Cargo Snowboard Pants - Kid's
  • Pros:  Cheap and do the trick in dry snow,
  • Cons:  Not built to last,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  True to size

Experience:   I have a pair of burton cargo pants that I bought a few years back. They held up for about 1 season (40 days) and then began to fall apart. I ride alot and did some decent backcountry riding with them. Seems were coming undone and will not keep me dry in wet weather anymore. I still use them on warm dry days but had to replace them after one season. I would say the burton cargo pants are still a nice pant if you can get them half off retail price but dont expect them to hold up for long. I will probably be looking to find a better brand for my outerwear needs.
"Gnu Rider's Choice" 11/2/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 GNU Riders Choice C2BTX Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Light, Great All Mountain Twin,
  • Cons:  Little bit soft ,

Experience:   I got this board at the end of last season and rode it only on big powder days in Colorado. First impression is that this board is one of the best I have ridden. I usually ride Never Summer SL-R. I love the rocker camber combo on the Gnu. It floated great in the pow, better than the Never Summer SL-R, and the blunt shape is awesome. The only thing I would say negatively about the board is that it is pretty soft compared to my SL-R. I did not ride this on much hard pack so can’t say how well it holds edge when bombing down a groomer. Bottom line, this is a great all mountain twin that is going to be my deck of choice this season.
