"Almost awesome, but two fatal flaws make them suck" 5/3/2010
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Giro Score PK Goggles Men's
  • Pros:  look really slick, great quality lens, have never fogged up
  • Cons:  really narrow (edges sit almost touching eyes), uncomfortable over my slightly large nose, most retarded strap ever invented

Experience:   These goggles could have been so great, if only they used a standard strap setup with a physical plastic adjuster like most goggles (including all other Gyro goggles I've seen). Instead, they decided to use a long single strap with a small square of velcro at each end. The ends of the single strap wrap around on itself to secure it at the length you want. The problem is, this velcro is not strong enough to hold the strap secure all day with any helpful amount of force -- at least 2-3 times per day I find the goggles feeling really loose and not pressing into my face enough to seal anymore, so I have to take them off and squeeze the stupid velcro ends back together again. You have no idea how frustrating it is. They also are very narrow... I consider myself to have a slightly smaller than average face, but a slightly larger than average nose. These goggles are so narrow that the outer edges barely don't touch my eyes which is a bit uncomfortable but not too bad, while the over-the-nose part pushes pretty hard on my nose even when the goggles aren't strapped on very tightly. It's too bad about these flaws, because the lens itself is phenomenal and they do look really nice. If only they were a tiny bit wider and had a real strap, they would be awesome. I am going to look into the Root instead, they look like they fit the bill for improving upon the major downfalls of the Score.
"Perfect match for Sierra Union Contact SL" 3/25/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Dakine Mountain Snowboard Stomp
  • Pros:  Small yet effective, Adheres well to board surface, Perfect color match for green Contact SL bindings
  • Cons:  White paint rubs off on word/mountain easily,

Experience:   I have never used stomp pads before, but I decided to pick this up with my new reverse crew since they're so cheap and the RC has a very slippery top sheet. I'm glad I did -- they are the perfect size to cradle themselves in the arch of your boot soles perfectly and add a lot of stability when skating. Also, they look pretty sweet, and the green color is the exact same green as the contact SL bindings, which is awesome. The only thing that's kind of annoying, the white paint on the Dakine logo and mountain thing wear off pretty easily, but that's not a big deal. I'm really happy with them. Just like pictured, you get TWO of these things for the price! I only put one on my board which is plenty, and have a backup now in case it ever gets too beat up or falls of. Nice bonus.

Comments & Questions

Ackurn
Did you get the black/green or the green/white? Because i've got the reverse crew which is black and green...the picture for the black/green stomp pad looks yellow and black, so did you get that one and it actually turned out green and black or did you get the white and green pad? thanks



"Single Boa = Single Pressure Point" 5/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Vans Encore
  • Pros:  Convenient, Warm, Solid
  • Cons:  Pressure points, Packs out a lot, Boa knob can snag on pant cuff
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  9.5
  • Boot Size:  9.5

Experience:   The first day I rode with these boots, they were absolutely perfect. I was sold on the Boa system -- it's so easy to tighten, and I had no problems with it loosening over time like some people have said about other Boa boots. They stay tight when you want them tight, and when you're walking around or on the lift you can just pop the Boa knob up and loosen them for awhile to be more comfortable. Then just click it shut and give it a twist when you want to ride and you're good to go. Two big problems I encountered, though: 1. They have developed a nasty pressure point on the top of my feet. The Boa system gets too tight across the top of my foot before it's adequately tight around my shins. I've slightly remedied this problem by putting some foam shims on the tongues, but they can still be pretty uncomfortable after wearing for a little while. A dual-zone Boa system would prevent this problem and I kinda wish I sprung a little more for the boot with the dual-zone system now that I can see firsthand how it would help improve the fit and comfort. 2. You have to be careful when lifting up your pant cuffs to get to the Boa knob and spin it -- I tried to pull and twist it through my pants a couple times instead of pulling the cuff up and using the knob directly... but that caused my pants to bunch up and get snagged between the knob and the boot, which was a little annoying to get undone so I could spin the knob more. I guess they have pants now which have a hole there for the knob to spin without this happening, but I don't want to get new pants just to make my boots easier to use... and it's not a huge deal anyways.
"I can't believe I waited so long to try these" 4/29/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Fox River Mills Med Volume Anatomical Fit Mid Weight
  • Pros:  Soft in the right places, thin everywhere else, Look nice, Don't smell
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Super snug but not uncomfortably tight... perfect

Experience:   At first, I always wore regular wool socks when I boarded. I just didn't even know snowboard-specific socks existed since I never looked for them. I picked up a couple different pairs during a sale here, and these are my favorites. They are just tall enough to completely pad my shins inside my boots, but not too tall that they bunch up above the boots. And they fit very snug around your entire foot, but are stretchy enough that it's never uncomfortable. They also keep your feet almost as warm as thicker wool socks but don't itch at all. Definitely a huge improvement over all other types of socks I've tried when boarding.
