"Great boots!" 9/22/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Q Womens
  • Pros:  stiff, comfortable,
  • Cons:  seems a little big,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  stiff
  • Shoe Size:  6.5
  • Boot Size:  6.5

Experience:   My girlfriend also just got these for the last season, but an '09 version, and she couldn't be happier - we found them at a local ski shop for a lot cheaper than the retail though, since they tend to be kinda pricy usually. But they're stiff and responsive, without sacrificing comfort. She did mention they seemed a little big on her, but not significantly. Great boots all in all!
"Ridiculous Board" 2/9/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 K2 Parkstar
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Jibs,Jumps,Low Speeds,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Stable at high speeds, Doesn't catch edge, Lots of pop

Experience:   This board is ridiculous. The first thing I noticed was how high I could jump - ollies were amazingly easy. You get tons of pop, and when you come down, it feels like this board almost guides you back if your landing is not spot on. The response is much better than other boards I've tried, which I think is due to k2's Matrix I system. The park star goes ridiculously fast. People say not to get rocker boards because they wash out on icy patches at high speeds, and I would've agreed - but I have ridden this board straight over long icy patches, and didn't wash out once! There wasn't a hint of instability, ever. This board is extremely stable at high speeds, even more than most of the cambered boards I've tried. I demo'd this board along with a Ride Machete, and even with all the hype that the machete gets, I like this board much better. It's more stable, gets more pop, and the response is quicker. GET THIS BOARD.

Comments & Questions

I want to buy this board. Can you tell me how it is in powder and deep snow? I really ejoy to do freeride esspecialy in deep snow. But I also want it for the park. What do you think about this board? It's easy/hard, fun to ride this board in pow? Thanks!



"Comfortable pants, but wore quickly..." 8/29/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sessions Bozung
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Warm, Adequately waterproof
  • Cons:  Ripped easily, Dye comes off, Fades quickly
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Slightly baggy fit.

Experience:   (Note: Best matched with just indicates what I usually wear this with - my Citron colored Sessions Primo jacket) These are fantastic pants in terms of sheer functionality. They kept me perfectly dry all season (even when sitting on the slopes), and never required me to wear a thermal layer underneath, even on the coldest of days. The biggest problem, though, was the build quality - I probably won't wear these pants for another season. I ripped them coming off of a chair lift, and while most pants would probably stop the rip and just make a little hole, these pants made a pretty sizeable square shaped hole. Due to my lack of sewing skills, I glued it back together, but this was sad. Though you may be thinking this is just a commentary on my recklessness, there were also a ton of holes by the end of the season where the pants meet my bindings. Even more sadly, the dye rubbed off a tiny bit onto my jacket, giving it a slightly dark yellow hue at the waist. And finally, the backside of the pants are extremely faded at this point. So to sum it up, functionality good, build quality bad, especially whatever they used to dye the pants...
"Wonderful boots!" 5/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Burton Hail
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Sturdy,
  • Cons:  Comes loose,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  9.5
  • Boot Size:  10

Experience:   These are great - I have huge issues trying to find shoes/boots that fit, and these fit perfectly. They're comfortable, and will let me go for hours without feeling the slightest fatigue. They're the only part of my setup that hasn't changed over the years - I still use my 2007 Hails with my Cartels and Park Star. The only issue I've had is that, no matter how much I tighten it nowadays, it still comes loose rather quickly. This probably is a result of my boots being so old now, rather than a commentary on the quality of the boot itself. Definitely try these on at your local ski shop, and order them if they fit!
"Good bindings" 5/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Burton Mission
  • Pros:  Cheap, Light, Comfortable
  • Cons:  Ding easily,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   These are amazingly comfortable - I have an older model, but they were pretty good with Burton hails. They were light, and relatively responsive. I've upgraded now to Cartels with a Park Star, but comparing the two, the missions are a bit more comfortable - my cartels get really tiring after a while for some reason. But at the same time, these are not nearly as responsive. Also, these bindings got dinged up over two years, and there's tons of fading, but they never broke. So... sturdy construction, I guess. These are great starting bindings, for sure.
