"Unique Graphic" 4/21/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Crew LTD Animal Hybrid
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Pros:  fast, $99!,

Experience:   Great graphics on the board. I really like the beagle and entire base look. Top sheet is very slick. Looking forward to getting some time in this as my first cambered board. Should get a lot of looks too. All for $99!
"Length is very long" 4/18/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Captain Henley Thermal Crew
  • Pros:  lightweight, wicking,
  • Cons:  very long, fits large,
  • Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  L

Experience:   After reading the earlier two reviews, I bought down a size to Small from my normal medium. The shirt basically fits like a small, except for length which is very long as noted by other reviewers. Aside from that, the shirt is fine for a dry-wicking layer.
"Nice integrated thin clava" 4/18/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sessions Thermatics Hybrid Clava Top
  • Pros:  warm thermal, integrated clava, thumb holes
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   The material in this sessions shirt feels just a bit thicker and softer than the diffusion crew. Will work great as a base layer with integrated clava for windy days.
"good dry-wick thermal" 4/18/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sessions Diffusion Crew Top
  • Pros:  lightweight, soft, comfortable material,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   Just a bit tighter than normal medium on me, but plenty of stretch in the fabric so it doesn't impede movement. Material is comfortable to wear as base layer.
"Reflex youth Teaberry" 4/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Reflex Snowboard Jacket Kid's
  • Pros:  Cheap,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  S
  • Fits Like:  S

Experience:   Basic jacket for young girls. There are two front handwarmer pockets with zipper and one pocket between the zipper and zipper flap in the normal media pocket spot for Burton. I didn't see a headset pass through. Season pass pocket is on the left sleeve under Burton logo flap. There is another pass or id pocket inside the jacket on the left chest. Feels like the insulation should be warm enough with a baselayer for temps down into the teens.
"Dakine Files" 4/8/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Dakine Replacement Snowboard Files
  • Pros:  cheap file,

Experience:   File works well even without tool. Something extra to keep in the tool kit and super cheap.
"Love the pants" 4/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Lucky Snowboard Pants
  • Pros:  lots of pockets,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL

Experience:   My wife bought these pants and loves them. They've got plenty of pockets and kept her warm and dry through all the falls learning to snowboard. She ordered them a couple of sizes large for layering and so they'd be baggy, so the adjustable waist really helps out. 5'4, 130 and she has room for 2-3 loose layers.
"Down for cold days" 4/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Guardian Down Womens
  • Pros:  Not as puffy as other downs,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL

Experience:   My wife bought this jacket for cold days, because she must have down. She likes that the stitching keeps it from being as puffy as her old down jacket. She tends to order a couple of sizes big so she can layer and still have it loose. I'm not sure how the sizing would translate for someone who wants a normal or tight fit, but it seems like normal sizing to me.
"2010 Trace Youth" 4/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Red Trace 0.5 Youth
  • Pros:  Multi-sport, Comfortable,

Experience:   I bought this brain bucket for my daughter to wear while skiing and also if she takes up skateboarding this summer. Got a Medium for her at 4 and it fits well. I measured her head around 53 cm and it fits well. It's a bit loose on my 2 yr old son whose head was around 51 cm. They both liked the look of the black one.
"Warm pant for the kids" 4/6/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Polarmax Tech Waffle Pant Youth
  • Pros:  Warm and wicking, Great layer under ski pants,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XS
  • Fits Like:  XXS

Experience:   Picking up extra pairs for my son who will be getting on the hill next year. The pants kept my daughter warm and dry while she was learning to ski this year.
"Like the vents" 4/6/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Giro G10 MX Snowboard Helmet
  • Pros:  easy to use venting system, detachable visor,

Experience:   Venting system really helps out on spring days with large temperature swings. Easy to adjust, even with gloves on.
"Solid little pant" 4/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Cargo Youth
  • Pros:  Lots of pocket space,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L

Experience:   With handwarmers, cargoes and rear pockets, these pants of plenty of storage space. Outer seems durable and it should stand up to wear well.
"Good starter pant for the little ones" 4/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Standard Snowboard Pants
  • Pros:  Zippers that zip closed down,
  • Cons:  none,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   Bought these in the Lima green and they go well with a black jacket. The green is lighter and more of a yellow green, than in the picture. Outer shell is very slick to the touch, not as rough feeling as the kids Cargo pants. Two handwarmer pockets with soft microfleece lining. I like that the pant pockets zip down, it seems easier to close than zip up closed.
"Bought this jacket for my son" 4/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Apollo Youth
  • Pros:  Warm,
  • Cons:  Only three pockets,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   This jacket is warm and the lining inside is soft. Zippers seem to be solid construction. The two front snap pockets also have horizontal zippers under the flap and they're they combo pockets/handwarmers. There isn't a side-entry handwarmer pocket behind them as in adult jackets. The vertical zippered pocket on the chest is the media pocket, with internal pass-through. Pass pocket is behind the power skirt on front left-hand side of jacket. Zip interface should be great to keep the snow out when he's falling while learning. There are small loops inside the ends of the sleeves to attach gloves/mittens to.
"Wife loves them" 3/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Emerald Womens
  • Pros:  Great fit, Comfortable,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  soft
  • Shoe Size:  8
  • Boot Size:  8

Experience:   My wife got these boots with a Social board and Lexa bindings and they are her favorite part of the setup. She had them heat molded in the store and loves them.
"Good binding and price" 3/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Lexa Womens
  • Pros:  Good price,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   My wife got this binding paired with a Social and she seems to like it. No complaints about straps or pressure points.
"Warm gloves, great liner" 3/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Gore Under
  • Pros:  Removable liner great by itself, Warm, Liner dries fast
  • Cons:  Tight, liner hard to fully get in the glove,

Experience:   I really like the removable liner in this glove and just wear the liner a lot, if it's not too cold. The liner wicks incredibly well and doesn't stay wet long. On colder or windier days, I'd wear both. The only complaint I have is the glove is a bit tight (and reason for 4 stars). It's fine if I'm just wearing the outer glove, but it's been hard to fully get the liner into the glove, especially my pinky and my finger tip ends up jammed against the end of the glove and uncomfortable. I would have probably bought a size up after reviews, but SS was out.
"Fits and Rides great" 3/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Hail
  • Pros:  very comfortable,
  • Cons:  none,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  soft
  • Shoe Size:  9-9.5
  • Boot Size:  10

Experience:   This boot is very comfortable for a full day of riding. I tend to over-tighten my right boot especially and have to loosen it up after a couple of runs, but I haven't noticed pressure points at all.
"Wife's first board" 3/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton The Social Womens
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Crud,Groomers,Low Speeds
  • Pros:  soft flex,

Experience:   We bought this board for my wife as her first board. We both just started snowboarding this year. She's gone 5 times on the board now and she really loves the board. She just rides at low speeds turning across the hill on greens, so I'm not sure how it rides at higher speeds. The last couple of times we went, the temp was mid-50s and it seemed to handle the slush well for her at lower speeds.
"Very good pant for all conditions" 3/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Field Snowboard Pants Men's
  • Pros:  Dry and warm, double zips on each leg, plenty of pocket space
  • Cons:  none,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   I like the dual zips on each leg. Last time I went skiing/boarding, I wore the pants in mid-20s night skiing and mid-50s snowboarding the next day. They stayed dry, even in the mid-50s afternoon slush.
"Great shell" 3/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Traction
  • Pros:  Lots of pockets, Zip interface to pants was great, season pass under chest pocket
  • Cons:  none,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Fit well, sleeve length and jacket length were perfect.

Experience:   I picked up this jacket as a start/end of season compliment to an insulated jacket that was getting way too warm. Wore it on a 55 degree day over a dry wick shirt and temp was just just right. Plenty of pockets to carry everything, electronics pocket is easy to geat to, great having it outside the zipper. First time I'd had zip interface, which worked very well.
"First board" 3/24/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Capita Sierrascope FK
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  easy to ride,
  • Cons:  none,

Experience:   First time rider this season with around four days of riding in now. One and a half on a rental first time I went and two and a half on the Sierrascope. I only have the rental to compare to. Midwest riding on groomers with both boards, rental was on ok snow with a bit of iciness mixed in. I was catching edge a lot, board was probably camber plus first time riding. Rode the Sierrascope on some nice groomers, slush and chop. With the Sierrascope, I haven't had an issue catching edges. It's easy to turn and control, and I think it's a very solid board for beginners. I'm 5'10/170lbs and I have the 152. I would like to get a Sierra Reverse Crew or Bluebird for next year, so I can compare to a stiffer board.
