Pros: Small and lightweight, Great variety of bits, Both forward and reverse screw options
Cons: Bits may fall out,
Bought this baby while it was on the 75% off sale. For under $5, this tool is great. Its small and light enough to carry around in your bag and pockets. You get a great variety of bits, soo for the price, its probably better then buying individual drivers. It has 3 screw options, forward, neutral and reverse.
The only problem i see with this is the bits compartments in it. the bits in the slide compartment, the handle, are fine BUT the bits in the head compartment seem to fall out easy. Just make sure you hold on to the plastic strip, from the packaging, to hold the head compartment together.
Pros: Great size, Nice design, Extreamely fast drying
Fit: Just right
My Size: M
Fits Like: M
Description: Great fit
Bought this when the 70% was on, so bought it for a bargain price.
Im pretty lanky, 190cm 60kg, so i have long arms and a long torso so this thermal fits me great. Doesnt have a tight feel like most thermals but thats what i like.
I love the feel of the material, soo silky like and it stretches pretty good without damaging the material.
It doesnt really matter if your jacket lets in a bit of moisture because this baby drys really fast.
Bought a medium size in gunmetal. This jacket looks great and feels great when wearing it. It has several pockets to store you goodies and has 3 vents for cooling, 2arm pit and 1 right chest vents. i thought that the vent system would not work great but after wearing and testing it i have fallen in love with it.
the only problem that i have had is that it cant take rain well. haha i know its not ment too. Im yet to actually test this bad boy in the snow, but ill re-update once i have.
Pros: Light in weight , Easy to change lens, Wide View
Cons: Expensive , Don't like helmet compatibility ,
I bought these goggles upgrading from the Smith Prodigy. Compared to the last pair these are so much better in every way.
These are light as and pretty durable in my opinion. Has the normal Smith head-strap and there is close to no frame which is pretty much made of rubber. Lens changing is easy as pie ( although i haven't used any other goggles with interchangeable lenses), all you have to do is rotate to leavers and pop the lens in and out.
It has a very wide view with its Spherical lens compared to a lot of goggles i have tried out at the shops and it fits my nose structure perfectly (long, medium wide nose)
Only things I don't like however is the helmet compatibility, with the Smith straps the clips on it clash with the goggle strap holder on the helmet.
It's obviously a bit more expensive, being a higher grade product but I was willing to pay for these.
I bought these at a bargain price and haven't regretted it. There stylish and look slick with any outfit. Compared to my other no-name branded goggles, it has a very wide vision and the 'Sensor' lens is clear as day. It doesn't obscure any images but at the same time, keeps the sun out. Easy strap adjustments just make this product even better.
The frame may seem a little big for some people but it suits me great.
Pros: Cool design, Great to wear anywhere, Keeps you dry, Cooling vents
Cons: Not many pockets, Zips are a bit hard to open,
Jacket Fit: Too small
My Size: M
Fits Like: S
Description: Seems a bit tight around shoulders and elbow
I usually by M size gear, but this jacket felt a bit small for me, it doesn't give much space around the shoulders and elbow in my opinion.
Apart from the sizing issue i had, its great. It keeps me warm in cool temps and when it gets a bit hot, the cooling vent system is your best friend. I actually love it that much that i wear it anywhere, snow or not.
Pros: Great Grip, Doesn't Come Off, Easy to install
Cons: Stands Out,
First stomp pad i have ever bought, but i love it.
You will never lose grip on this thing, and you cant misjudge/miss the stomp pad because its soo dam big.
I think that is the only thing wrong about it, but i dont mind. It goes with my board great.
Just bought this as my first snowboarding bag. What can i say... its huge! I can fit everything that i need for my trips in this. clothing, accessories, snowboard, bindings boots.
I dont have a 2nd board so i only use 1 of the bags, the other can just detach. It rolls around fine with all the weight but it has no shoulder strap to carry around in.
These pants are great, i'm still new to boarding so these are the only pair i have tried, so i can't really compare to anything else.
The Burton Cargo keeps me warm, looks great and has plenty of pockets. I'm not sure if other pants have this, but the Cooling vents around you thigh and groin area is the best.
only problem i had with these is that it's a bit bigger then i had expected it to be.
Description: Perfect fit, Loose fit but not too baggy, not entirely slim either.
I bought a Large size for this jacket in the Tang (orange) and I am in love with it.
As stated above it has a perfect fit for me, loose but not too baggy. I am 186kg and 65kg (on the slim side).
It has the recco system, which is pretty much a whistle as the main zipper. You could also use it as a rape whistle when 'that inappropriate friend' touches you in some places.
I don't get much time on the snow but i have used this jacket for 10 days and it has no signs of wearing at all (I take care of my equipment).
Also is very lightweight and cheap (imo)for its 20k waterproofing. It's only 12k breath-ability but I didn't wet due to sweat (I was out non-stop for my days of boarding). It does a great job of what it is supposed to.
It also has mittens attached to the sleeves of the jacket which you can hide into the sleeve. I don't use this as i use gloves but you maybe able to use it to double up on mittens for extra cold days or if you have lower quality mittens. Alliteratively if you ever lose your gloves on the lift or something you could use it. They are pretty thin, so i don't imagine them keeping you too warm, also the snow seems to stick to it really easy.
Also has a great number of pockets. Has enough for essentials and a lift pass (I dislike having too many pockets)
Only real downside to this jacket is the hoodie. I couldn't really use the hoodie because i had a hard time pulling it over my head with a beanie on. I do however have a larger head compared to most people.
A really good jacket and totally recommend it to people out there. Pretty cheap for it's 20k waterproofing and has a few extra features. And I am pretty sure you can ship internationally with 'Sessions', so that's a plus if you are not from the states (like me).
Name: 2008 Thats It Thats All Travis Rice Snowboard DVD
Pros: Bit of every style of Snowboarding, Great variety of Music, Bit of a doco included to keep you interested
This was the first Snowboarding Dvd that I ever bought and is by far my favourite. I didn't know what to expect of it but it blew my mind away. Totally got me into snowboarding more.
Stars Travis Rice, Nicolas Müller, Jeremy Jones, John Jackson, Mark Landvik, Pat Moore, Scotty Lago. (These are the guys that stand out for me).
The dvd is great if you like Back-country, Heli, Jumps and tricks. Theres not too much rural boarding/tricks thou. Theres a few interviews with the stars of the dvd, which for me, was Great. Im not a fan of people just ripping it up for the whole duration of the dvd. Lots of comical jokes and acts in it as well.
Keep an eye out for T.Rices and M.Landvics Butters.
Cons: Bit tight around toes, Ice manages to get in,
Shoe Size: 12
Boot Size: 11.5
This is the first Boot that i have ever bought (Im still new to snowboarding). So i can't tell you guys much about performance.
Im 186cm and 60kgs, Very thin and wear size 12 shoes, normally. As there was no Size12's of this boot i decided that a 11.5 would be fine. Didn't go into a local to try it or anything either, which i know was stupid.
The boot fit me fine. Close to a perfect fit. It's just a bit tight around the toes for me.
The single Boa tech tightens the boot fairly evenly, although i have heard of a few issues with it, I didn't seem to have any. Also even when the boot is tight, snow seemed to get into the boot.
The boot is fairly solid and has great grip but is fairly Stiff.
Pros: Gore-tex, so its unbelievably waterproof, Great mobility,
Cons: Bit thin, for those colder days,
I usually wear a X Large glove, but with these i can wear L - XX L and it feels the same. Tried these gloves out today and was very impressed. Unlike most gloves i have tried (cheap gloves), i could freely move my fingers around and not have to take them off for fiddling with my Bindings, camera or zips (jacket and bag).
I wore these in snowy conditions with little visibility and it was around -5'C. They kept my hands heaps warm and i didn't have a problem. So good infact that i will be willing to dish out Aus prices for these.
Pros: Small in size, Easy to use, Good length cord
Cons: Numbers hard to change, More of a deterance,
Bought this at my local shop for $30ish. For the price its not too bad. Its small in size, so it takes up no space in your bag or pockets. Its code system is easy to use, with directions in the box, theres no way you can get it wrong. You get a decent length cord, long enough to tie up your board, but not too long so it doesn't get tangled.
With gloves on the number dials may be a bit difficult to change, due to the small size. Its not like a heavy bike chain, so dont expect it to fully protect your gear. If someone can be bothered to cut through the wire (kinda like a thick guitar string with plastic around it)they will get it. Also the plastic on the whole gadget seems a little flimsy.
