"Dakine Stomp Pad" 12/1/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2006 Dakine Venom Snowboard Stomp
  • Pros:  Excellent Grip, Durable,
  • Cons:  Huge, Ugly,

Experience:   If you're looking for an inexpensive stomp pad that is FUNCTIONAL and will last you a long time, this is an excellent choice. If you're looking for a stomp bad that looks good and will complement your board without covering up your siiick graphics, look elsewhere. This pad is a whopping 4 in diameter, and it sticks up at least half an inch from your board. Functionally, it really doesn't get packed up with snow at all, and it is probably one of the better performing stomp pads I've ever used. It's durable (the grip hasn't worn at all after heavy use) and when installed properly (clean, dry, and warm), won't peel off. So bottom line: functional, but ugly... your call.
"DC Boots w/ BOA" 11/8/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2011 DC Judge BOA Snowboard Boots Men's
  • Pros:  BOA system, Warm,
  • Cons:  Durability, Fit,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  soft
  • Shoe Size:  10
  • Boot Size:  10

Experience:   I bought these boots mainly bc I was attracted to the BOA system. First of all, the fit seemed to be true to size right-out-of-the-box. It took a while of riding and walking around in them to truly break them in. Other reviewers have complained about the BOA lacing system giving them issues... I'm not hard on my boots and I've always taken care of them... so no problems there. Certain parts of the leather material have seemed to wear prematurely, but no big deal there. The boots are warm, and will keep your feet that way all day. My only complaint about the BOA system is that, at first, there seemed to be some uneven tight spots on the top of my feet, but that went away after the first few days of breaking in the boots. Don't hesitate to buy these boots.
"Burton Custom X 158" 6/11/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Custom X
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds
  • Pros:  Lightning Fast, Lots of pop, Stiff
  • Cons:  None,

Experience:   This board is siiick. Super fast, razor sharp edges out of the box. Great for flying past your friends on the downhill. Stiff, but still has enough pop for jumps. Most of all, the graphics are super clean for those who like it simple and blacked out. It's a little on the expensive side but for half price on Sierra, you can't beat it... 10/10!
"Great Goggles" 1/18/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Dragon Mace Goggles
  • Pros:  Fit, Anti-fog, Style
  • Cons:  None,

Experience:   Got these goggles in Coal/Amber for Christmas a few weeks ago. Tested them out in Wolf Creek a week later. They fit perfectly with my helmet (Smith Variant Brim), and require no expansion strap. I wore them one day without my helmet and they fit just as well. I have to say, they never once fogged up on me... I was genuinely impressed. They're for a medium to large face, and fit me well (I'm normally a medium face). The ionized amber is good for sunny to partly cloudy days, but once the shadows set in (and on tree runs), it's a bit tougher to see.
"Dragon DX" 12/30/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dragon DX Goggles
  • Pros:  Fit, Anti-fog,
  • Cons:  Durability,

Experience:   I have these goggles with the Coal-Amber lense. They are my back-up pair for low-light / cloudy conditions. I wouldn't recommend using this lens (in any goggle) when it's really bright outside, especially with all of the reflection off of the snow. The DX fits well, and is compatible with my helmet (Smith Variant Brim), which I really like. It was a pain getting a replacement strap for a previous pair of goggles which wouldn't fit over the helmet. These goggles won't fog up on you unless they get filled with snow, of course. They've held up to light use for a couple of years, but I can already see where the lens is peeling up on one corner... probably my own doing since I landed on my face in the park last year. I'd definitely recommend these goggles at the price point. You won't find a better deal.
"Most Versatile Stomp Pad" 12/1/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Dakine Pyramid Stud
  • Pros:  Very versatile, Won't fall off, Durable
  • Cons:  Traction, Install time,

Experience:   I bought these pyramid studs in black to go along with my Burton Custom X. Naturally, I oriented the 9 studs in an X. A few comments: be sure to follow the instructions and install these things using a blow dryer on a clean, warm, and dry board. I've had mine on my board for a couple of years now and not a single one has fallen off. If you're a perfectionist like me, it'll take you quite some time to install these things. I just used a ruler and made sure the lines making up the X were straight. It also helps so that you can get them evenly spaced. One tip, tape the ruler to the board so you have two hands to drop a stud in place. Once it's stuck, you really don't want to move it. I'd also recommend leaving a stack of textbooks on top of the pad for a while (I did this overnight) before using it to make sure they're stuck. As far as use goes, they really don't get packed up with any snow and ice, and are easy to clear with a kick. Unfortunately, the minimal surface (contact) area provides for only decent traction, but not great. Overall, I'd recommend this set if you're looking for something very versatile that you can customize in your own way and rely on to last (the metal doesn't wear out like plastic or rubber stomp pads will), but don't expect it to be a top performer when it comes to traction.
"Decent" 12/1/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine Flake Mat Snowboard Stomp
  • Pros:  Thin, Sticks,
  • Cons:  Traction,

Experience:   Bought this stomp pad for my girlfriend. A few comments: The good: The double-sided tape holds well, just make sure to apply the stomp pad to a clean, dry, and WARM board. Her's has held fine after seeing lots of use. It looks pretty good on the board, and really isn't very bulky. The bad: Like other reviewers have commented, the little spikes on the pad are rather sharp. The stomp pad works fairly well when it's clear, but it tends to pack up with snow and ice rather quickly, rendering it nearly useless. It's decent for the price, but I'd recommend spending a little more and getting something better.
"Smith Variant Brim" 11/10/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Smith Variant Brim Snowboard Helmet Men's
  • Pros:  Fit, Temp Control,
  • Cons:  None,

Experience:   My girlfriend bought this helmet for me off of TS as an early Christmas present. First of all, the fit is great, the padding and ear cover is plenty to keep your head toasty. On the other hand, when it starts to warm up on a sunny day, the vents work well to keep you from starting to sweat. I had been eyeing this helmet for a few months because I simply think it looks great. And my goggles work perfectly with the helmet. No complaints.
"Burton Moto Boots" 11/2/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Moto Snowboard Boots Men's
  • Pros:  Fit, Durability, Lacing system
  • Cons:  Warmth,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  10
  • Boot Size:  10

Experience:   Great entry-level boot. Fits true to size, gets the job done. They're not the warmest boots I've ever owned, but I'd definitely recommend them if you're looking for a boot in this price range. The lacing system is nice and convenient, and easy to use.
"Great" 11/2/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 K2 Sidestash Skis
  • Pros:  Stable at high speeds, Stiff,
  • Cons:  Heavy,

Experience:   Borrowed these skis from a friend. I'm a snowboarder but used to do a lot of skiing. These are great all-mountain skis. A bit heavy and on the stiff side, so not really recommended for park, but if that's not your thing, definitely pick these up from TruSnow
"Plexus Zenith" 11/1/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 686 Plexus Zenith Softshell Jacket Men's
  • Pros:  fits well, plenty of pockets, looks good
  • Cons:  waterproofing,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Perfect

Experience:   I borrowed this jacket from a friend. it fits great, looks great, is warm, and has plenty of pockets. my only complaint (and it's to be expected from a softshell) is that it doesn't handle rain / snow well. if you take a big spill or it's a snowy / rainy day, wear your other jacket
"Dakine High Roller" 11/1/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine High Roller Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  Nice design, Durable construction,
  • Cons:  Not much space, No wheels,

Experience:   Nice bag for the price. Has held up through several trips through the airport and strapped to the top of a vehicle. Ample room for one board and bindings, but if you're trying to fit 2, look elsewhere. Also, when fully loaded and padded down with t-shirts, etc, the bag can be pretty heavy (~ 50 lbs) so having wheels would be a nice touch.
"Burton Poacher " 1/5/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Poacher Snowboard Jacket
  • Pros:  Lots of convenient pockets, Jacket-to-pant interface, Warm and waterproof
  • Cons:  No drawstring on the hood, Hood isn't removable,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Just right

Experience:   Picked up this jacket from TruSnow for the 2010-2011 season in True Black w/ a pair of Burton Cargo's. First of all, Burton's jacket-to-pant interface is really nice for keeping you dry, especially if you plan on falling in the park a lot. It's warm and waterproof, but throw on an extra layer in the single digit temps and below.
"Great, Affordable Pants" 1/5/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Cargo Snowboard Pants Men's
  • Pros:  Great, baggy fit, Lots of pockets, Jacket-to-pant interface keeps you dry
  • Cons:  None,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Just right

Experience:   Got these pants in True Black Trench Plaid from TruSnow for the season. They fit great and true to size, have plenty of pockets and features. The boot and waist gators are nice, especially the jacket-to-pant interface (can only be used w/ a Burton Jacket). The waterproofing is great, but you'll need to throw on an extra layer or two in the single digit temps.
"2010 Nitro Sub-Zero" 6/11/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Nitro Subzero
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Super soft, Lots of pop, Gullwing camber
  • Cons:  None,

Experience:   Got this board in a 158 and flow quattro bindings off of Sierra for $220 shipped so I was stoked. It'd be worth paying much more. The board is noodly and has tons of pop. Grrrreat in the park. Lock onto rails with easy. It can get a little shaky when you point down the groomers, but it's not uncomfortable or anything. Overall, great board. Own one.
"Oh-10 Quattros" 4/17/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Flow Quattro
  • Pros:  Quick in/out, Looks great, Great binding for the price
  • Cons:  Pain to set up initially,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Got these bindings (size L, fits my size 10 boot perfectly) from Sierra last month. First of all, like a lot of the the other reviewers said, they're a little difficult to get set up in your bedroom when you first get them, and will definitely require a little tweaking the first day out on the mountain. Overall, these bindings are a great value for the price. Easy in / easy out, super clean. Got the Flows paired w/ my Nitro sub zero for good flex. Not quite as responsive as my custom x w/ triad ESTs, but better flex. Overall, get these bindings from Sierra... they rock.
