"Sessions Achilles Snowboard Pants Men's" 9/29/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2011 Sessions Achilles Snowboard Pants
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Lightweight,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Baggy fit

Experience:   I was told by Trusnow staff that the blue was supposed to be darker than the picture shows. But the colour is exactly dead on. I like that its a baggy so it doesn't restrict movements. Overall, solid pants from Sessions!
"Solid shoe" 7/15/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2013 Gravis Recon Shoes
  • Pros:  Comfy, Price point, Quality

Experience:   Bought this shoe in NYC last weekend cuz it was on sale was very impressed with how comfortable this shoe was. Did a lot of walking and these bad boys kept my feet pain-free. I normally wear a size 11 but it felt kinda cramped so I had to go a half size up on this one. Also, it's mostly suede so it might be best not to wear them in rainy weather. Don't really skate anymore at my age but I do notice that it does have nice traction on the bottom. Overall, it's a great pair of shoes and I recommend this to anyone looking for comfort that's affordable.
"Love these mittens!!!" 2/27/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Burton GoreTex Mittens
  • Pros:  Warm, Waterproof, Liners

Experience:   I bought a pair of these Goretex mittens at the end of last season but only got to try them out now. Absolutely love these mittens! Kept my hands warm and dry. In fact, at times it got a bit too warm and had to take my hands out just to keep it from sweating so much. Also nice that it comes with a set of liners allowing for some dexterity when you do up the straps. Definitely worth the money!
"Very impressed with the Cartels!!!" 2/27/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2013 Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings
  • Pros:  Responsive, Comfortable, Adjustability
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Demo'd the Burton Cartels at Whistler and was very impressed with these bindings. Super responsive and comfortable. Versatility when it comes to wearing the toe straps either over the toe or as toe caps. Both options felt solid when I strapped in. Took no time to make any adjustments. Dampening felt very comfortable with the little gel cushion under the heel of the footbed. Made landing jumps and riding the high speeds a much more comfortable ride. Overall, very impressed with the Burton Cartels. Couldn't find anything bad to say about these bindings. I'd recommend this to any intermediate to advanced rider.
"Awesome board!!" 2/27/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2013 Lib Tech T.Rice Pro C2BTX Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Great edge hold, Great for carving groomers, Felt stable at high speeds
  • Cons:  Pricey, Not easy to flex, Heavy board

Experience:   I recently demo'd this board at Whistler and got paired up with some Cartels. First thing I noticed was the sick graphics on the board. Also tried some flat ground presses before my run and noticed that it was much harder to flex on this board. First run, I charged the mountain and it felt very stable. The only time I got nervous was flat-basing down at the bottom. Almost felt like the MTX was kinda catching a bit too much and I nearly kissed the ground. Carving was fun on this board on any kind of terrain whether you're riding regular or switch. It had great edge hold everywhere I took it except the park. The C2 tech made it a lot smoother of a ride when it came to the chunky stuff. Unfortunately, didn't get to do much powder riding that week so can't really say much there but I'll update it when I get a chance. Overall, this was a pretty sick ride if you're looking for an all-mountain freestyle board. I'd recommend this board for intermediate to advanced riders. Definitely stay away from this if you're a beginner!
"My New Best Friend!!" 4/2/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Spy Platoon Goggles Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Wide peripheral vison, Comes with a free lens

Experience:   Picked up my new Spy Platoon TSL goggles and I'm lovin it. It's very comparable to Electrics EG2 with the wide peripheral vision but the TSL's came with an orange lense for the overcast days. It's a deal that you can't pass up. I recommend this to anyone looking to try the oversized goggles.
"Rome SDS Hoodie" 4/2/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2011 Rome Logo Zip Hoodie Women's
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Warm, Lightweight
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Slim fit

Experience:   Really nice hoodie that's comfy, warm and light. However, the fit was kind of misleading. On the Rome site, it says it's a regular fit but it's more of a slim/relaxed fit. So if you're looking for something that's a bit baggier then go a size up.
"Solid pants!" 4/2/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Quiksilver Drill Shell Snowboard Pants
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Warm, Good price
  • Cons:  Very little velcro on the cargo pockets,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Not overly baggy or tight

Experience:   Love my new blue snowboard pants! I tried it out this weekend in Whistler and it held up great with all the pow and the different weather conditions. Kept me warm and dry throughout the day. Only issue I had was there wasn't much velcro to keep the cargo pockets fully closed. Also had a manufacture defect where the ankle button just came off while I was putting it on. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for pants that's affordable, comfortable and keeps you warm.
"Burton wheelie" 12/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Burton Wheelie Board Case Men's
  • Pros:  It's got wheels!, Room for 2, Solid padding

Experience:   Took it to Whistler this year and was able to hold 2 sets of boards, bindings, boots, and rest of the gear and still remain within the 50lb limit. Saves my shoulders from having to carry all that weight around. Has a lot of padding built in to protect your board(s). Great investment! I love it!
"Nice beanie!" 12/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Truckstop Beanie Men's
  • Pros:  Light, Warm, Cheap
  • Cons:  A bit baggy,
  • Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  One size fits all

Experience:   Fit was a bit big for my liking but eventually I got used to it. Nice option to keep your head warm. Also doesn't give you that packed down beanie hair after you wear it.
"RED Mutiny" 12/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Red Mutiny Snowboard Helmet
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Low profile, Warm
  • Cons:  Ear warmers comes out easily,

Experience:   Solid helmet by Red. Helmet is very comfortable, has a low profile, and keeps my head warm. The only issue I found was that the ear warmers tends to come loose pretty easily. Other than that, it's a solid helmet for the price. Fits well with my A-frames.
"32 JP Walker's" 12/13/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Thirty Two JP Walker Snowboard Boots Men's
  • Pros:  Lightweight, Comfy, Warm
  • Cons:  Laces are super long,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  11
  • Boot Size:  11.5

Experience:   Great boots for the price. Wore them out this past weekend in Whistler and they held up great. Very light, comfortable and kept my feet warm throughout the day. I have wide feet and it felt nice and snug. However, the 11's ran a bit smaller when I tried them on so I went a half size up. If it helps, I tried on a pair of 2012 Lashed and that felt even wider than JPW's. My feet had room to slide left and right in the Lashed boots but was more secure in JPW boots. I chose an average fit instead of wide, even though I have wide feet, was based on the comparison to how the Lashed felt.
"Awesome board!!" 3/3/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2011 Lib Tech T Rice C2 BTX Horsepower Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Off Trail,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Responsive, Comfortable, Hard to catch an edge
  • Cons:  A bit stiff, Heavy,

Experience:   I borrowed my friend's Lib Tech T.Rice for a weekend in Tremblant and it performed flawlessly. It was a very comfortable ride from the camber underneath the feet, graphics are sick, very hard to catch an edge, and magna-traction! I had a little trouble riding this board at first. The MTX made it very responsive which kinda threw me off a bit. I noticed immediately that the board was heavier than the ones I've rocked. Also, it's a more on the stiff side. It still didn't solve the ice issue cuz the board still kinda drifted at first then locked in. This board is more for an intermediate to advance rider or this board will throw you around! Overall, awesome board!
"Nice Goggles" 3/3/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Smith Phenom
  • Pros:  Looks great, Comfortable, Doesn't fog

Experience:   I bought these goggles last year and they're great. Really nice looking goggles, very comfortable and most of all they don't fog up. So far I haven't come across any problems with it. Great price can't go wrong.
"THE DUNKS!!" 3/3/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Nike 6.0 Dunk Shoes Men's
  • Pros:  Looks Great, Durable, Comfortable

Experience:   These shoes are really solid shoes. They're comfortable, looks great and last a long time. Go pick up a pair of Dunks cuz It's what the cool kids wear!
"Burton base layer" 2/25/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Tech Burton L/S TShirt Men's
  • Pros:  Warm, Lightweight, Comfortable
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Just right

Experience:   I own 2 of these base layers. They're very warm, comfortable, light and will keep you dry. I use them whenever I ride. Can't go wrong.
"Good base layer" 2/24/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Mid Layer First Layer Pants Men's
  • Pros:  Quick dry, Warm, Light
  • Cons:  Inseam stitching,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Just right

Experience:   I bought this base layer and it's been great for the price I paid. It's kept me warm and dry when I'm riding. Maybe this is just me, but I find that sometimes the inseam stitching makes things a bit uncomfortable. Other than that, it's good for the price.
"Awesome Bindings!!" 2/24/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Mission Snowboard Bindings - Men's
  • Pros:  Durable, Lightweight, Easy to strap in
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I own a pair of Mission Bindings from 2008 and they're still kickin! Haven't had any problems yet. Burton bindings are unmatched.
"Worth the price!" 2/24/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Moto
  • Pros:  Warm, Price, Quick lace
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  11
  • Boot Size:  11

Experience:   These are great boots! Very warm, comfortable, and a good price for what you're getting out of them.
"Safety first!" 2/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Red Mutiny Snowboard Helmet - Men's
  • Pros:  Lightweight, Warm, Price

Experience:   Great helmet! Lightweight, warm, and looks good! This is one piece of equipment that I own and would not cheap out on. As for sizing, I tend to wear 7 1/8 New Era Caps, so the Medium fits well. But I think for those who still want to wear a beanie underneath you might want to go a size up or just take out the liner.
"Awesome beanie!" 2/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton All Day Long Beanie Men's
  • Pros:  Warm, Lightweight, Good price
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Baggy

Experience:   This is an awesome beanie! Keeps my head nice and warm. Very light, so light that I feel like I'm not wearing anything. And you can't beat the price.
"Deals!!" 2/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2006 Sessions Infantry Snowboard Pants Men's
  • Pros:  Warm, Good price, Waterproof
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Baggy Fit

Experience:   I've taken it out a couple times now and it's awesome! I'm 6'1 so I run the Large and it fits great. Love the baggy fit and it kept me warm and dry when I was riding in -15C to -20C. Any colder, it's a safe bet that you'll have to double up unless your a real man like me where you don't wear layers! All in all, you can't go wrong for the price.
"NICE JACKET" 2/17/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Poacher Snowboard Jacket Men's
  • Pros:  Light, Keeps you dry, Comfortable
  • Cons:  Not waterproof enough,
  • Jacket Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Baggy fit

Experience:   I have the Green Comic Print jacket and haven't had much problems with it other than it's not waterproof enough. Top of Whistler/Blackcomb was fine but when you get to the base, where it's a bit warmer, it's very wet and it's not so good. I'm not quite used to the baggy fit but I guess it's better than wearing something that's tight and restrictive. Lots of room left after the layers. Good for the price!

"Awesome A-Frames!!" 2/17/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Oakley A Frame
  • Pros:  Don't fog up, Stylish, Comfortable
  • Cons:  Bit of a struggle to change lenses,

Experience:   When I first got into snowboarding, I didn't realize how much of a difference the goggles could make when riding. So after a few crappy pairs that fogged up I decided to invest in the A-Frames. Money well spent! No more fogging up while riding. I can actually see where I'm going. The only problem I have is when it comes to changing the lenses, it isn't the easiest task.
"Park board" 2/17/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Process VRocker Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Easy to butter, Simple graphics, Solid board for beginners to intermediate
  • Cons:  Unstable at high speeds,

Experience:   I demo'd this board at the beginning of the season and it's a nice ride. Floats in pow, carving groomed runs, and very easy to butter. Graphics are nice and simple nothing over the top. This board is definitely for beginners who want to learn park riding or intermediate riders. I found it to be very unstable when it came to higher speeds. I wouldn't recommend using this board to bomb down the mountain with it unless you don't care about your body!
"Pretty Good!!" 2/17/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Split Roller Small Travel Bag Men's
  • Pros:  Good Construction, Very spacious, Durable
  • Cons:  Doesn't stay standing up,

Experience:   I bought this almost a year ago and it's held up very well over several trips. Picked it up for about $45 at the time.... great deal! Only problem that I have is that it doesn't stand like most travel luggages. So it has to be laid flat on the ground or someone needs to hold on to it. Other than that, it's well worth it.
"Looks are deceiving" 1/6/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Foursquare Melnik
  • Pros:  Really Warm, Shell colour,
  • Cons:  Non-zippered liner, Bad skirt, Fabric of the shell
  • Jacket Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Body and arm lengths seem to be a little too long. It fits like an XL

Experience:   The shell wasn't very good, in glades or powder in general, because if you fell the powder tends to stick. And the skirt was poorly setup which made the skirt and liner a complete mess. Truly, the only good thing about this jacket is that it was warm.
