"size up" 1/17/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Space Sack Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  can be abused, cheap,
  • Cons:  no pockets, strap is annoying,

Experience:   the best thing about it is if it gets covered in mud you don't care it was able to get a lot of stuff in it if I took my time organizing it carefully but make sure you get a size bigger than you think you need you'll be happy you did
"the end of a long journey" 1/17/2012

  • Name: 2012 Burton Ion Snowboard Boots
  • Pros:  dual zones, thin soul, weight
  • Cons:  can lose their stiffness,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  12
  • Boot Size:  11.5

Experience:   I recently got the 2009 pair of these of craigslist and they have ended my long horrible journey to finding solid boots that bit properly. I used to have ride anthems and liked them very much but i never realized how heavy they were nor how thick the sole was making my 5'11'' height worse. the sudden decrease in weight and the inch of height decrease on the board suddenly made me feel like I was riding in lead boots. I felt a lot more agile and more connected to my board. I do miss the boa system but it was worth the sacrifice. when it comes time for my next pair of boots I will splurge on these if I can't find the previous seasons in stock. where you save the money elsewhere put your money into boot always.
"good in a jam" 12/30/2011

  • Name: 2011 Burton Zip Snowboard Tool
  • Pros:  small, self contained pieces,
  • Cons:  levarage,

Experience:   A solid small tool not great for constant adjustments but does the trick for a quick tightening. I keep it in a random unused pocket and forget about it until I really need it.
"Great Helmet" 12/30/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Smith Maze Snowboard Helmet Men's
  • Pros:  light weight, comfortable, low profile

Experience:   I forget I'm wearing this half the time. It saved my head from a nice face plant not too long ago on hard pack. looks great with a very low profile. Glad I splurged on this item instead of cheaping out to save 20 or 30 bucks. I've owned it for a full season and its still in very good shape. Fits perfectly with Oakley A frames and Analog frames. Chin strap adjusts nicely and ventilation is incredibly well designed to reduce goggle fogging.
"worth the extra 20" 12/30/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Ride Jackson BOA Coiler Snowboard Boots
  • Pros:  siffer than anthem, light weight, good for narrow feet
  • Cons:  not dual boa, will pack out a half size at least,
  • Fit:  soft
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  12
  • Boot Size:  11

Experience:   you can not go wrong with the boa system. These are nicely stiffer than anthems which I rode last year so they will hold up better during the day, also sized down from my anthems because they packed out significantly after about 10 days but are very comfortable, I was able to size down a full size comfortably for better control. Fit is much truer than Burtons which are just way to wide for me. At some point I'll get to the Insanos. I'm not a park rider so I'm trying to go stiffer bootwise and this is a nice mid-stiff boot for the price
"Best for the price point" 11/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Ruler Snowboard Boots Men's
  • Pros:  dual zone lacing system, light weight, price
  • Cons:  winding the cords,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  12 1/2
  • Boot Size:  13

Experience:   A top seller for a reason I did hours of research before I bought these. my first boots stepping up from rental gear. after trying single zone boots I knew right away I wanted the option of more breathing room up top which is easy to do with these. don't listen to people who claim the cord gets destroyed by the clamp they just don't lace them right. you really have to train yourself to pull forward while tightening otherwise your just going to pull against a locked lace if you pull backwards at the same time which probably will kill the lace after awhile. these are also the cheapest boots you'll find with the dual zones. Stiffer boots tend to be on the more expensive side and these are a nice middle ground the fit is true I am a real 12 and 1/2 shoe size (measured) and I could not comfortably fit into a size 12 so I went up to a 13. It was odd though because I tried on Burton Ions and I fit well into a 12 for those. The interior is nice and soft but feels like it will pack out over time. Highly recommend to Beginner/Intermediate.
"Solid middle ground" 11/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Triad
  • Pros:  Good Looking, Padded base, gel shock, Solid frame
  • Cons:  decrative plastic appears fragile, pricey,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I bought them at closer to $100 not sure if they are worth being in the 200 range. These are the middle ground Burton bindings between their Missions and the higher end ones which are also lighter than these. They are very adjustable which is nice but getting to the base plate can get annoying if your someone who likes to tinker with angles as there are little clips that hold down the added padding to the base the clips seem sturdy but only time will tell as I haven't had them long. one other note is the plastic webbing in the high back which I have heard has cracked and fallen out for other people. I can understand that as this stuff is purely aesthetic but would probably look nice against an opposing colored boot (as opposed to black on black which is my current setup). I probably would have gone with the missions if they weren't out of stock at the time but am not disappointed with these. The gel shock absorber under the heel is a nice addition as well.
"Best of both worlds" 11/8/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Medium Spike Snowboard Mat
  • Pros:  metal spikes, large scraper,
  • Cons:  expensive,

Experience:   the spikes are metal and half the height of the central scraper which is 1.5 centimeters high, . spikes are nice and small to get in the grooves of your boots. recommended if you like the mat style stomp pad.
"solid goggles" 11/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Anon Figment Snowboard Goggles
  • Pros:  fits around helmets well, understated, comfortable
  • Cons:  expensive, visibility,

Experience:   solid goggles, got them during the good old days when they were 44 on sierra not sure if they are worth any more than that I have the black with amber lenses they do a good job and the foam is super comfortable but I'm wondering if that extra foam pushes the lense out too far limiting my vision ever so slightly. no fogging issues. comes with a nice pouch.
"lock it up" 11/1/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Cool Lock
  • Pros:  set your own combo, large and visible,
  • Cons:  large size,

Experience:   2 1/4 wide by 4 long which makes it fairly sizable making it risky to keep in the pocket but flat enough to be doable in a jacket pocket. A solid deterrent to theft: slightly less safe than a hiding in the bushes with a baseball bat but better than a this board is protected by Viper sticker
"Not pocket sized" 11/1/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Cool Tool
  • Pros:  good handle, ratcheting ability , multiple bits
  • Cons:  large, heavy,

Experience:   1 1/4 wide and 4 3/4 long I put the dimensions here b/c I figured this would be pocket size but its more of a book bag/gear bag size which is fine but not what I expected. I wouldn't chance putting it in your pocket b/c if you land on it wrong you're going to end up with a black and blue mark in the shape of it. so throw it in the bag!
"Large and in Charge" 11/1/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Dakine Venom Snowboard Stomp
  • Pros:  large, good hold on most boots,
  • Cons:  too large a profile, eye sore, color is hard to match

Experience:   The pad will do the job well but it is very large (3 and 3/4 inches in diameter) its points of maximal height are 3/4 of an inch high but i guess if you get a lot of snow on your board this makes the height a good thing. the color is like a teal or aqua blue which probably looks great on the Stunt but not so good on a black board.
