"Solid Bindings" 12/10/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Custom
  • Pros:  Solid build, Easy in, easy out. , Fit my Burton boots like a glove.
  • Cons:  Not super flossy,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I picked up these Custom's as part of my first setup, along with Burton Hails and a Rome Custom. The bindings are solidly built, easy to setup and easy to get in and out of. So far I've had about a dozen days on them without the slightest issue. The straps fit well and don't need retightening or fiddling with. I can't imagine a better binding or value for the newbie rider.
"Flexable and dendable" 10/15/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Smith Scope Graphic Air Snowboard Goggles Men's
  • Pros:  Sensor lens is great for flat light days., Well built, Great value
  • Cons:  Fixed lenses, Sensor too light for Bluebird days.,

Experience:   I have a pair of Scope Airs with the Sensor Lens serving as my backup goggles. The goggles are solid, with good padding and a generous strap that should fit over just about any helmet. They're well ventilated, and comfortable for an entry level goggle. The frames are stiffer than most removable lens goggles I've worn, but they fit my face well. The sensor lens is great. I expected it to be good for stormy/flat conditions, but it works well even in brighter light. If you're nursing a hangover on a bluebird day you're def going to want a darker lens tho.
"You can stuff these pants!" 10/11/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Cargo Snowboard Pants
  • Pros:  Pockets fer cargo. , Zips together with Burton jackets, Keeps ya dry and warm.
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Not too baggy, maybe a little long.

Experience:   I wore these pants all last season and have been perfectly happy with them. They were good with a set of thermal pants down to the single digits, and comfortable up into the 50s with the vents open. I fell down in them all year and they kept me dry. The pockets are plentiful, and the knee pockets are big enough to hold a PBJ sandwich. They're only closed with velcro, so I wouldn't keep anything important in them.
"The Poacher is a steal!" 10/11/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Poacher Snowboard Jacket Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable from single digits to high 40s., Lots of pockets., Great value.
  • Cons:  MP3 pocket opens to outside of jacket.,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Baggy fit.

Experience:   I rode all last season with this jacket, everything from storms to single digits (cold for California, ok!) up to sunny April days in the 40s. Its got enough insulation to handle the cold, and big armpit vents to keep things breezy in the sun. It's got a lot of pockets (4 external, plus the MP3 pocket). The MP3 pocket one of the only downsides to this jacket. Instead of being inside the jacket, it opens through the zipper flap and is sealed with 2-layers of velcro. Most of the time this is fine, and it makes it easy to get to your MP3 player/phone, but on deep powder days I had problems with snow getting in there.
"2010 Red Trace II " 8/2/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Red Trace 2 Snowboard Helmet
  • Pros:  Cheap. , Looks good, saves your noggin., Warm on cold days, but not too hot.
  • Cons:  The goggle clip falls out constantly., Questionable build quality. ,

Experience:   I've had this helmet for a little over a year, and I've used it about 30 days. It's a simple clean lid, and it didn't cost much. It's warm enough to get by on cold (20 degree) days without a hood or beanie, which is good because I would have probably needed to size up to wear anything under it. It's not too bad on warm days either, unblock the front vents and you get noticeable airflow. Not as airy as higher end helmets tho. The ear pads help on the cold days, and can easily accept hacked up old school headphones for jams on the cheap. This helmet isn't without weaknesses though. Since it's meant to be used for skateboarding too, the google clip is removable. Too removable. I lost mine through a grated deck, but have been getting by without. The build quality is also a little poor. The glue that held the eps foam to the outer shell gave up this summer after being stored in a hot garage, allowing the outer shell to slide around the foam. I pulled it apart, and I'm going to repaint and reglue it and it should be good for next season.
"Electric EG1 Goggles" 7/19/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Electric EG1 Snowboard Goggles Gloss
  • Pros:  Cost, Easy to change lenses,
  • Cons:  Could use a longer strap,

Experience:   I got these EG1s after borrowing a pair from a friend the season before. They held up well all season, and the included pink lens meant I was covered for all conditions. The goggles are comfortable all day, and the only time they ever fogged was when I was struggling in deep powder and I'm a sweaty dude so that's to be expected. These goggles are such a great value I would not hesitate to recommend them to a friend, and I'm considering picking up a second pair as backup. The only negative, is that the strap is maxed out when worn with my helmet (a Red Tracer2). Another inch would have been perfect, but as it is they're still comfortable and the strap hasn't stretched after 25-30 days of use.
