"Great Bindings & Cheap Price" 1/2/2011
Helpful Review?   (10) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2011 Rome S90 Snowboard Bindings
  • Pros:  Total comfort, Good for all over the mountain, The price, great looks
  • Cons:  None,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   So I bought these along with the Sierra RC and the first thing I noticed after taking them out of the box is that they look like a effin sports car...sleek and mean but with the right amount of shine. I love the way you can adjust them on the fly w/o any tools. I switched boards the other day on the mountain w/ one of the girls i was riding w/ and could make the straps fit her boots within a couple minutes. The ankle strap is made to be soft enough to not need any breaking in...so it was totally comfortable from the start. The toe straps stay on and don't even budge due to the rubber material that it's made of. The cushioning under foot is great and soft for hard landings on packed snow. I've read that other people think the straps looked or felt weak, but I don't see anything wrong with them. I've been using Salomon bindings and thought those were great. Now I'm finding it hard to go back to the old ones on my other board. I would much rather take the time to switch bindings onto other boards than to use bindings that I think are lower quality.

Comments & Questions

Skoojoo
Are these bindings fairly heavy or light?

TheChingstaBoarder
there light to medium weight.. approx. 2.5 lbs.. very great.

How are they for really tightening down, and staying tight? My friend has some technine's I tried, they feel really cheap, and don't get tight at all...



"Awesome Board, Can't go wrong!" 11/14/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Salomon Drift Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Park,Powder,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Great pop, Holds it's edge on icy days, Very little chatter
  • Cons:  It's a little too stiff for my liking,

Experience:   So I rode this board all last season and thought it was a great all mountain board. It's got the Equalizer Edge and it did what it was supposed to do. The Equalizer edge consists of totally straight lines as opposed to a round radial cut. It actually helped out at the end of the season when most of the runs were hard as hell. It's also got urethane inserts built into the edges and it made it feel really smooth. It's a twin shape so you can ride switch easily. My only dislike for it is that it's a little too stiff for my taste. I would have liked it to have a little more flex to make it easier for butters and presses. So it's a great board and it's a pretty good price compared to the brand new boards. I don't know how many people listen to the Good Wood awards but it was one of the top ten back when it came out.
"The Best Helmet..." 10/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Smith Variant Brim Snowboard Helmet - Men's
  • Pros:  Multiple adjusting points, Ventilation for all conditions, Speaker compatible
  • Cons:  May not work with extra large goggles, You look like a cop!! NOT COOL!!, Too many people have them

Experience:   So I tried every helmet on that I could find at multiple stores. I weighed the price, comfort level, features and of course how it looked. Most of the helmets out there are comfortable, but they are just so damn ugly looking that I couldn't even think of wearing them all over the mountain. The fit of the Variant Brim is by far the most adjustable. There's a locking system at the base of your neck, sort of like almost all bicycle helmets. That keeps the helmet super snug. I loved the option that I could buy speakers that are in the ear padding. It just plugs into an ipod or mp3 player that you can leave in your pocket. There are tons of vents built in that can be opened or closed while you have your gloves on and keeping the helmet on your head. You will not be disappointed by this helmet.
"Awesome Jacket!!" 12/27/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Sessions Shane Ski Jacket Men's
  • Pros:  Top quality , Engineered down to the smallest details, Style
  • Cons:  The fit is tighter than most Session jackets,
  • Jacket Fit:  Too small
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  S
  • Description:  The fit is tighter than most Session jackets.

Experience:   I waited about 2 months before I finally pulled the trigger and bought this jacket. I'm so glad that I finally got it because it is now my favorite jacket out of the 4 that I've got. The fit is a little tighter than most Session jackets I've tried on so I had to go up a size for it to fit right. Besides the fit, it seriously is my favorite jacket now. The fine details show the high quality. Everything is reinforced, pockets and zippers are in great places, it comes with a goggle cleaning rag and a neck gator. It even has an inner pocket to put your touch screen phone/mp3 player in and still lets you use it through the plastic window. The jacket doesn't go down too low past your waist so it gives you a less baggy look, which is exactly what I was looking for.
"Great light weight jacket" 11/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 686 Plexus Doppler Softshell Jacket - Men's
  • Pros:  Totally waterproof, Hood fits over helmets, Perfect amount of insulation for most conditions
  • Cons:  Other people have it, Sleeves are a little long,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  It fits pretty fair all around except I found the sleeves to be a little too long for me.

Experience:   I got this jacket in the middle of last season and wore it everyday after that. It's surprisingly warm for being only a little insulation. It's totally wind and waterproof. The cuffs on the sleeves have holes for your thumbs. The pockets inside have pass through slits for headphone wires. The left inside pocket has a plastic window so you can access your ipod or mp3 player easily. There are zippered vents underneath the arms that are easy to open with gloves on. The hood has a drawstring in the back to make it tighter. It is a great jacket.
"My Favorite Jacket!!" 5/29/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 686 Plexus Doppler Softshell
  • Pros:  Totally waterproof, Hood is big enough to fit over helmet, Nice pass-through for audio wires
  • Cons:  Torso length might be too long for some, I've seen too many people with the same jacket!!,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  S
  • Fits Like:  S
  • Description:  It fits well but is a little too long.

Experience:   I bought this jacket for the second half of the season and wore it everyday. It's not baggy feeling so it doesn't feel like it gets in the way. Pockets inside and out have perfectly placed pass through spots for audio wires. The thumb holes in the cuffs helped keep the sleeves stay in place when putting on my gloves. I recently got caught in pouring rain and it kept me totally dry. This is the best jacket i have owned!! Buy it and see for yourself.
"Awesome Boots!" 9/22/2014
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2014 Nike Zoom Kaiju Snowboard Boots
  • Pros:  Very Comfortable, Perfect Flex, Best looking boot around
  • Cons:  Laces become loose,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  10
  • Boot Size:  10

Experience:   I've got the black/red versions (looks like Jordan 3's). Right out of the box they fit perfectly. No need to walk around the house to break em in. Holds the heel really well without having to make the boot extra tight. The insole has a slight bubble in the middle of the foot to help circulate blood flow. It must work cuz my feet were never freezing cold. Medium flex for all mountain use but definitely stiffer than Nike's lower end boots. I get compliments on them almost everyday I ride cuz they look so much like the Jordan 3's. The only draw back is that it's a conventional lacing system and get's loose after 3-4 hours of riding. Not too big of an issue but i can defitely feel the difference.
"Great goggles." 9/22/2014
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2014 Smith I/O Goggles Trilaboration/Blackout + Red Sensor Lens
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Easy to use, Fits most helmets
  • Cons:  Scratches easy, Everyone has them,

Experience:   I bought these goggles after a friend's recommendation. They are my go to goggles out of the many I have(Oakley, Anon, Von Zipper, Spy). The field of view is great because you barely even see the frame when you've got them on. The goggles come with two lenses so you don't have to spend even more money. Lenses are the easiest to change compared to any other ones I have. All you have to do is flip two little clips and slide out the lense. The only drawback is that the lenses are a little softer and can scratch easier. So you just have to be carefull and not throw them in the truck or gear bag with out storing it in the bag that it comes in.
"Awesome Helmet!!" 10/14/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Red Mutiny Snowboard Helmet
  • Pros:  Comfort, Low profile look,
  • Cons:  No external vents,

Experience:   I've been using Smith helmets until I tried on this one. This is now my favorite lid to wear. The padding is very comfortable and doesn't feel like it puts any pressure on my head. I bought the speakers to go in the ear pads and it sounds ok. There's no external vents but that's ok as long as it's not a warm spring day. If it does get hot, you can take the padding off that cover your ears. There are small vents that bring airflow in from under the brim which can be opened and closed even when wearing gloves. Fits all of my goggles nicely. The only exception would be for the oversized huge ones.
"Great Basic Board Bag" 10/14/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Space Sack Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  The price, Solid construction, Basic graphics
  • Cons:  No padding, No compartments,

Experience:   This bag is pretty basic but it's made very well. Features include an adjustable shoulder strap that's detachable, handles on the side as well as the top of the bag, a zipper that can be closed with a small lock. Sizing is perfect for the length and fits great for the specified board size. You can actually fit two boards inside the bag if you detach the bindings from one of the boards. I always wrap my gear with towels to prevent everything from scratching. Plus it helps when the boards are in transit cuz you never know how other people will be handling your stuff when not in the public eye.
"My Go To Board" 3/17/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Capita Green Machine FK Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  It can handle every terrain., Very forgiving, Light weight
  • Cons:  It's not the fastest board out there.,

Experience:   This board can do it all. Powder, park, switch riding and even does well on those icy hard packed days. I have three other boards for different riding conditions and I continuously grab my Green Machine to ride. Don't get me wrong when I say it's not the fastest board out there. This board is still stable at high speeds. Of course a board with regular camber is the best for that. The flex and pop is about medium. It loosens up after it gets broken in for a year. My friend has the same board but used it for 30 more days than mine. You can see the difference in the camber if you set them side by side. Mine is still flat between the bindings and my buddies board has a slight negative camber profile now. The edges stay pretty sharp and the base is damn fast. The board turns on a dime effortlessly.
"This Is My Go-To Board" 1/2/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Reverse Crew Wide Snowboard 160
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Very easy to pop with, Easy to do butters, Pretty hard to catch an edge
  • Cons:  Doesn't do well at high speeds, Edges are dull straight from the factory, Top sheet is not very durable

Experience:   So I've ridden my new board for 10 days so far and it beats all of the boards in the past. This is my first reverse camber board so it took a little getting use to it but now it feels so natural. Going through the trees is so much easier because it turns on a dime just by flicking it out there. I used to never be able to turn that fast using my other boards that are regular camber so I always never wanted to go with my friends in the trees. Butters are also easier using this board. It's got just enough flex so it's not too soft and noodley. Riding in powder is awesome too. I barely had to think of keeping the nose up. I've read other people saying the same thing but I finally experienced it for myself this week. I'm not too much of a park rider except for the progressive parks, but I'm hoping to step it up this year with this board since it's so easy to use.
"Perfect for smaller faces" 11/14/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Oakley Ambush
  • Pros:  Optics are great, Large vents around frame, Quality construction
  • Cons:  Not good for medium size faces,

Experience:   I recently tried these goggles on in a store and found out that they were way too narrow. I've got a medium size face and I still thought that they were too small. They are marketed as being for small to medium face sizes, but i think that it should just be for small. Otherwise, i thought the optics were great without any distortion. The straps were easy to adjust. The foam surrounding was very comfortable, almost like it was part of your face. I don't think they would ever have a problem fogging up because they have huge vents all around the lens. Overall they would be great for someone that has a small face.
"Great beginner kit" 11/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine Deluxe Snowboard Tune Kit
  • Pros:  Has all you need, Cheaper than buying everything individually,
  • Cons:  None,

Experience:   I just used mine for the first time today! Everything was perfect. The kit is great because it's got everything you need for a full tune-up minus the iron. I priced everything out and it would have been a lot more to get the tools individually...plus you a get a handy case to keep everything organized. All the parts feel pretty good...but I'm no pro at tuning boards. The instructions that came with the kit weren't anything to learn from, but I basically learned enough from all the how-to videos out there on the internet. Make sure you buy more wax because the kit only gives you a small brick for a few waxings. Overall I think it's a great kit for the money. I'm sure there are a lot of people like me that will only wax their board like 5-8 times a season so you'll recoup the cost of the materials fairly quickly.
"Great Basic Helmet" 11/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Smith Maze Snowboard Helmet Men's
  • Pros:  Super Lightweight, Soft cushioned liner, Ventilation for goggles
  • Cons:  No adjustments for the back of the head,

Experience:   The Maze is a great feeling helmet. The first thing you'll notice when you pick it up is how light it is. When you put it on you'll feel that the liner is super soft all over. It's the perfect amount of padding. It's got vents mainly in the back that can be covered by moving a little flap that is built into the liner of the helmet. I thought that was a genius design. An audio unit can be bought for this helmet which replaces the ear padding for ones with speakers built in. I have a different helmet with the same audio system and love it because you have the ability to adjust the volume on the cord or the ipod. The only thing I thought this helmet was missing was the ability to make adjustments behind the head to make the helmet feel even more secure...but it felt pretty damn secure once it was buckled on.
"Great versatile jacket" 11/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 The North Face Apex Bionic
  • Pros:  Water/wind proof, Very warm, You can wear it all year round
  • Cons:  None,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  It's made to fit a little bit tighter

Experience:   I bought this jacket because I borrowed my friends one day and loved it that much. It's not a baggy fit, so it's a little more on the conservative side of styling. The functionality is second to none though. It's really a basic jacket that doesn't have too many bells and whistles like some of the snowboarding jackets out there. I especially love it when the snow isn't coming down since it has no hood.
"A Great Medium Size Pack" 10/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Mission Pack
  • Pros:  It's the perfect size, Has multiple zippered pockets, Ability to strap a board on it
  • Cons:  It's too easy to bring everything you own!!,

Experience:   I picked this pack because I needed something slimmer than the previous one I was using. I also liked all of the different pockets that are intended to be used for specific things. There's a goggle pocket at the very top so it's easy access and they won't get mangled underneath everything else. The pocket for sunglasses has lining like the goggle pocket so the lenses won't get scuffed up. The water bottle holder folds away into a pocket when it's not in use. There's slots inside the pack for mp3 players or phones. When I've got it on and pulled everything tight, it feels like it's just a part of you. It will never move around while you're riding. When I walk to and from the lift I strap my board onto the pack and don't ever have to worry about holding it. People actually look at me and I hear them saying how cool it is to be able to stick a board on your back.
"Perfect Size Tool" 10/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine Torque Driver Snowboard Tool
  • Pros:  All parts fit inside handle, No slipping when applying a lot of torque, Very light weight
  • Cons:  It might be easy to loose the pieces, The handle is made of plastic,

Experience:   I carry this tool everywhere on the mountain. It's super small and fits into any pocket. You can really put a lot of torque into it because it's a T-handle. I really love that all the parts fit inside the handle and screws shut so there's no way any parts will just happen to fall out by accident. Super easy to use.
"Great boot...if you can find them to buy!!" 7/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Salomon F22
  • Pros:  Very comfy, great response, never gets loose
  • Cons:  They didn't make em in all black,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  10
  • Boot Size:  9 1/2

Experience:   I bought mine thinking that I'd switch off with my older Salomon Maori boots...yeah right!! These boots blew those ones out of the water. My feet never felt tired, always felt great and never came loose. Easiest lacing system I've had so far. I just wish that I could have bought em in all black. Good luck finding them in stores though!
"Awesome goggles!!" 7/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Von Zipper Dojo
  • Pros:  HUGE field of view, great optics, sick styling and colors
  • Cons:  Rubs a little on my helmet, doesn't have silicone liner on strap,

Experience:   I got mine at the end of the season and only got to use them for a few days...but i sure am stoked that I did get to. Crystal clear lenses, huge peripheral view, totally comfortable, won't fog up. My fav goggles out of 5 that I've had/used.
"Great For the Price." 5/29/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Von Zipper Bushwick
  • Pros:  Great price, Von Zipper optics, Anti-fog
  • Cons:  A little flimsy feeling, No silicone lining on strap,

Experience:   I used my bud's googles one day and wasn't going to expect much out of them because I knew that they were cheaper compared to my Dojo's. Well I was totally wrong. They performed just as well, but without all the bells and whistles more expensive ones have. If you're looking for an entry level google, then this is the one for you.
