"Great boot." 4/1/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Ruler
  • Pros:  Very warm. Comfortable., Stiff, but still comfortable., Dual zones make dialing in fit easy.
  • Cons:  Speed zone lacing isn't that speedy, imo., Not sure shrinkage tech really made them smaller,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  12
  • Boot Size:  12

Experience:   Got these in a 12, and they don't seem any smaller than my 10-year old Burton Freestyles in size 12, so not convinced that shrinkage technology is really there. That's a small quibble, since I'm riding wide boards, anyway. These are very warm, but my feet tend to be hot. The speed lacing ain't all that quick with the stowing of the handles and such. I do love the dual zones, and feel much more dialed-in with these than any traditional boot I tried on, and the lock-down on the speed lacing really keeps them dialed-in until you're ready to take them off at the lodge. I also ordered the 2009 Jeremy Jones from another site, and returned them because they just were not as comfortable as the 2010 Rulers.

would you say you're a a size 12 or 12.5? I'm between a 12 and 13 trying to figure out which size I should order. thanks for the helpful review.



"Warm layer, extra long." 2/6/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Premium Tech Shirt
  • Pros:  Long fit., Great graphics., Warm, dries fast.
  • Cons:  Too long for some people?,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Fits long, perfect for me.

Experience:   I normally wear XL or XL-Tall. Usually with long-sleeves, I'll order XXL to get the sleeve-length I need. With Burton stuff, I tend to be just fine with their XL. Particularly in this shirt, the sleeves and torso are very long. Sleeves hit me just above the knuckles, and I wear a 36/37 sleeve. Love the graphics. Have the Bolt 13 and the Buinness colors. It'll make me sad if they ever wear out. Not a huge fan of the graphics on the 2011 tech tees.
"Slouchy fit, warm, stylish." 2/6/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Ewe Beanie Men's
  • Pros:  Warm., Looks good.,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XXL
  • Fits Like:  XXL
  • Description:  Even with my big head, still slouchy.

Experience:   I love the shiny look to the fabric on this beanie. Really sharp-looking. I have it in the green, and it can look more brown or green, depending on the light and what you wear with it.
"Nice fit, perfect for layering." 2/6/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Groove Fleece Men's
  • Pros:  Longer sleeves, for tall fit, Slim fit perfect for layering.,
  • Cons:  Not super warm., Could be longer in the torso.,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Slimmer, with longer sleeves.

Experience:   I love this with a base layer and a shell jacket for a perfect mid-weight. Not sure I'd pay full retail, but it has a nice look for wearing out in the spring and just the right amount of warmth. I like the full-zip for easy on/off, unlike quarter-zip fleeces.
"Just like dad's, only smaller." 2/4/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Ruler Smalls Snowboard Boots Kid's
  • Pros:  Speedzone lacing., Heat moldable liner., Warm
  • Cons:  No Shrinkage tech?,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  5
  • Boot Size:  5

Experience:   Got these for my son in size 5 along with the Freestyle Jr. binders in the youth size, which should fit from size 2 through 6. I don't think these binders will fit the size 5 boots for another size, but we'll see next season. For this year, they're fine, but it certainly is adjusted all the way out to accommodate his size 5 Rulers.
"Super warm, insulated jacket for those colder days." 4/17/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Strapped Down
  • Pros:  Eliminates the need for layers., Fits my long arms. , Waist and wrist gaiters will keep everything out.
  • Cons:  Slightly bulky.,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Not as long in the sleeves as my Slub, but still plenty long for my monkey arms.

Experience:   I really like the fit of this jacket, as it doesn't add extra bulk by trying to be baggy. The orange (Horizon) goes well with either my resin or true black pants. Zip-interface to my Burton pants is also there. Love the wrist-gaiters, which are also plenty long for my proportions.
"Good compliment to the Cool Tool" 4/17/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Dakine Mega Blaster Snowboard Tool
  • Pros:  All bits you need for basic repairs & adjustments.,
  • Cons:  A little bulky to keep on you without a pack.,

Experience:   I'd keep this in the locker at the lodge or in my backpack, depending on the day. The Cool Tool is good for keeping in your pocket. I can see the little doors/holder getting loose after a while, so I'd avoid beating on this thing too much. Can't it beat it for the price.
"Unique-looking binding, with unique components." 4/15/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Union Danny Kass
  • Pros:  Stiffer Data highback, Force straps, Contact basep, Nice cushioning., Very lightweight.
  • Flex:  stiff

Experience:   The cushioning on these is all nylon, not the leather that's on the Union Data bindings. Seems like it should hold up really well. Definitely stiffer highback than the Datas, based on holding them and trying to flex. Checking the design and build quality, I see the hype around Unions, and looking forward to trying them out soon. Might end up selling some 2010 Cartels if these really rock.
"Like 'em so much, got em twice." 4/15/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Cartel
  • Pros:  Looks great in Orange or White,, Stiff enough for aggressive freeride., Quite adjustable, very secure, full bed cushion.
  • Cons:  Had some pinching, but adjusted it and feels bette,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Really like the toe-strap cap, and the responsiveness it adds. Very locked-in feeling with the Ruler boots. Full-bed cushioning with 3D discs or 4-hole discs, so more friendly to those of us not riding Burton boards. First pair was in white with the yellow/green accents, looks great on my Sierra Crew 160w. I liked them so much, I got a second pair for my new Sierra Reverse Crew 160w. This time in the Bitter Orange color. Looks great.
"Very stiff, seems bombproof." 4/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Flow NXT FRX
  • Pros:  Fits nicely with my Rulers., Very stiff, super strength construction., Quick in/out even with my 12's.
  • Cons:  Heavy, when compared to my Cartels.,
  • Flex:  stiff

Experience:   I'm really looking forward to taking these out soon. Trying to line up a trip to Tahoe. Doing the carpet tests, the flex is definitely very stiff, and the in/out is pretty easy with my rulers and the top strap tightened down. I think I'm going to like these better than my Cartels, but we'll see if I miss the toe-strap cap.
"Long arms, nice accents." 4/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Analog Composed Ls
  • Pros:  Lightweight, nice pattern., Long arms, fits tall guys well.,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Fits a bit like and XLT, and somewhat slim.

Experience:   Like the fit and style of this shirt. Posted a review because I have really long arms, and wasn't sure if the fit would be good. I wear a 36/37 sleeve (6'3, 220, 46L jacket) and XL that's not an XL-Tall doesn't always fit. Took a chance since I heard Analogs run long. Tall guys, buy with confidence!
"Warm, waterproof pants." 4/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Restricted Chigurh Snow Pants
  • Pros:  Very warm and waterproof., Zips into my Slub jacket., Resin is a great color
  • Cons:  No zippered pockets.,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  A little baggy, but plenty long for my 38w/34l size.

Experience:   These are heavyweight pants. Definitely not for spring days. Save these for bitter cold days or colder days when you want to skip the base layer. Love the weight and texture on the fabric, and the zip-in to my jacket. Great compliment to my Ranger pants.
"Great little tool" 4/1/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Dakine Cool Tool
  • Pros:  Everything you need, nothing you don't,

Experience:   Saves you from having to ask the board shop for a tool. For a few bucks, this is easily stowed in a jacket or backpack and can save you some heart-ache on the mountain. This one replaces a ten-year old Red tool that I passed on to my nephew. Every bit as good.
"Great, versatile, breathable pants." 4/1/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Ranger Snowboard Pants
  • Pros:  Great color, keeps me dry, zippered pockets., Just warm enough with a base layer., Light enough without a base layer for spring.
  • Cons:  None.,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Long-ish, a little baggy, but perfect for a big guy like me.

Experience:   Rode in these in total slush. Sat down to strap-in all day long and came away with dry knees/butt. Zipped into my Slub, and the snow/slush stayed out on a couple of big diggers. True Black is like a denim gray color, which looks great. Inner vents were great on a spring day where temps hit 65.
"OK glove, a bit snug in XXL" 3/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Bronco Glove
  • Pros:  Nice glove, great looking., Not too bulky., Warm enough.
  • Cons:  Bad in wet conditions., Snug fitting.,

Experience:   I have large hands, but XXL in most brands fit me well, and should with DaKine per the sizing chart. These are a bit snug, and when a little damp on the inside, become a pain to get on/off. I'll stick with my 10-year old Outdoor Research lobster-claw GoreTex gloves for most occasions.
"Great shell for layering or spring riding." 3/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Slub Snowboard Jacket
  • Pros:  Love the vents, pockets, sleeve length., Great for layering., Love the texture.
  • Cons:  None.,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Just baggy enough to layer.

Experience:   Fits great over the Burton Softshell, or by itself with a t-shirt in the spring. Great look/texture for the True Black, and great fit in XL for someone with monkey arms like me (6'3, 36/37 sleeve). I usually go XXL or XL-Tall or 46L, depending on the sizing, but XL was perfect, even when layered on this jacket. Sharp enough to wear off-mountain. Great zip-in to the Ranger pants.
"Great bag for travel and packing up everyone's boards." 3/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Overload Convertible (180cm)
  • Pros:  Love the two compartments, padding, wheels., Plenty of room in the 180cm with my 160cm board., Helmets, gloves, boots, bindings all fit.
  • Cons:  No accessory pockets I could find., No shoulder strap.,

Experience:   Killer price from Sierra. Great insurance if I ever make it to some real boarding out West. Plenty of room to carry my board, my wife's board, and both my boys' boards. Padding that will protect it from the Gorilla baggage handler of the hold Samsonite commercials.
"Great wide board." 3/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Crew Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Carving,Crud,Groomers,High Speeds
  • Pros:  Great price, not locked into 3D or ICS bindings., All the features of the epic Custom., Great graphics.
  • Cons:  None.,

Experience:   I really love this board after replacing my 10-year old Burton Motion 162w with the Sierra Crew 160w. Super responsive by comparison, and paired with the Cartels really carves up the trails and deals with the crap conditions in the Poconos of the spring season well.
"Great helmet for big head." 3/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Red Hifi
  • Pros:  Good fit in XXL for 7-3/4 hat size., Removable ear muffs.,
  • Cons:  Makes my big head look even bigger.,

Experience:   Haven't wrecked with it on my dome to test its protective ability. The green looks better in person than on the site. A bit brighter. Comfortable and easy to adjust to get a safe fit.
"Great, versatile fleece for layering or a top layer." 3/18/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Softshell
  • Pros:  Hooks up with my Ranger pants well., Layers under the Slub shell., Water resistant enough to be a top layer.
  • Cons:  Can't think of any.,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  XL
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Slim Fit, Good sleeve length. Plenty of room to move.

Experience:   This jacket is super warm. The outer surface provides a good amount of water resistance, could work as a top layer. The slimmer fit makes it great layering under the Burton Slub, and the hooks work well with the Burton Ranger pants. Sleeves are long enough for me in an XL (and I'm 6'3/220 and wear a 36/37 sleeve). The True Black Trenchs Plaid is a nice colorway, should be a picture up of it over on the Burton site. This one is really warm, so definitely consider that when you're adding to your layering arsenal.
