"Good in looks, bad in value" 10/20/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 DC Donon Snowboard Pants Men's
  • Pros:  Bright an colorful, suspenders are removeable, esthetically appealing
  • Cons:  not very water tight, very long in the legs,
  • Pant Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Extremely baggy and long in the legs.

Experience:   I used these as my primary board pants last season. They are comfortable, bright an colorful but they are not very water tight. On the wetter days, I definitely got a wet anus by the end. The legs are VERY long. Myself being only 5'10 the legs very VERY long so anyone over 6 feet should not have an issue with length when rocking the hill. -1 star for water proof ness (with the price and material it was to be expected) -1 star for fitment (extremely long legs should be fine for others)
"Good intermediate board" 11/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Stunt Wide Snowboard 153
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,Low Speeds,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Very stable at moderate speeds, V shape holds well in powder, Doesnt catch and edge easy
  • Cons:  The gorilla graffic scares me,

Experience:   I had the pleasure of winning this board on the daily give away, and I am SO glad I did! I used it opening day on Blackcomb (Whistler) and with the early season condition, i used it powder, groomers, icey, variable all in one day. Im 175 lbs and got the 155cm board. Its stable at moderate speeds. It ran through a foot of powder without issues. It wasnt edgy at all on ice or variable sections. All around this board was great and fun to play around with. Super all around fun board and I am glad I won this board indeed!
"Decent binding" 11/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Infidel
  • Pros:  Solid, Ratchets well, solid footbed
  • Cons:  not boa compatible,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I had the pleasure of using these bad boys for the first time last week. The are sturdy, reponsive, and with the wings, it SO easy to butter and manual. Now the negative, the wing on the highback hits my side boa lace on my DC Status boots. It kind works, but the high back can hit the lacing system loosening the laces. -1 star for an otherwise solid binding.
"Stiff boots!" 8/17/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 DC Status
  • Pros:  Dual Boa, Dual Boa, True to other DC shoe sizes and boots
  • Cons:  hard padding,
  • Fit:  soft
  • Flex:  stiff
  • Shoe Size:  9
  • Boot Size:  9

Experience:   I have had the pleasure of purchasing these boots during the summer. At this point in time I havent used them riding, just around the house. I am going to write this review based on initial fit and I am going to compare these boots to another DC boot, the core allegiance (my previous boots). Firstly, the allegiance is a 7/10 on the stiffness scale and the status is a 9/10. The status is VERY snug around the ankles. There is little flex compared to the allegiance but there isnt much comfort lost. The boots fit true to my DC allegiances and my DC shoes. Im a size 9 in DC footwear and the same is true for the boots. I have narrow ankles and a decently wide toebox. In these boots my ankles feel supported but arent crushed but if you have fat ankles, I can see discomfort. The feel of these boots I would compare to an ice skate. Stiff and responsive but not forgiving. I am happy with this purchase as I did buy a stiffer boot with the intension of getting more control on the hills for those icey days when all you have to do is go fast and hard down the slopes!
"Daddy likes!" 8/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Spy Zed
  • Pros:  Helmet Compatable, Interchangeable lenses, Comfortable strap
  • Cons:  Little on the large side of medium fit,

Experience:   I have these zeds in black with a mirrored rose lens. I love the lens color, as I find it fine in bright light conditions, but as it starts to white out in fog, I can still see well. I dont see these lens as a fogging up lens, and have never had an issue with the 20+ days of riding I used them for last season. The goggles are also helmet compatable so I dont get that dreaded goggle gap. The interchangable lens are also nice, but I jsut swap between my blizzards and these guys when i need to change a lens color :) The only negative thing that I can say is that they are a little on the large side. If you have asian features, or lend them to your girlfriend they will be huge.

I forgot to add that like all spy goggles that I have used, they are SUPER comfortable!



"My favorite goggle ever!" 7/30/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Spy Blizzard
  • Pros:  Fit, Comfort , Interchangeable lense
  • Cons:  The stopped making them,

Experience:   I bought this goggle new back in 2007. I have used it for every season as my primary goggles. I have the bronze lense mirrored and orange. The lining around the foam has just worn out from years of use, and isnt comfortable to wear anymore. BUT, before I wore it out, these were the best goggles that I have ever used. NEVER fogged, good scratch resistance and I loved the lense choices.
"Girl friend loves them" 7/30/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Oakley JP Auclair Crowbar
  • Pros:  Fit, comfort,
  • Cons:  Fogs up (at low speed), Not helmet compatable,

Experience:   Got this goggles for my girlfriend in yellow tiger print. She like the look and fit, BUT she like to putter around on the green runs so it does fog up on her. At speed it de fogs just fine with the lens vents. -1 star for slow speed fog up and the helmet gap!
"Nice Googles" 7/30/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Oakley Crowbar
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Solid Lens, Doesnt Fog
  • Cons:  Not Helmet compatable,

Experience:   I like these googles with perssimmon lens and the lens is solid, but unfortunatly it isnt helmet compatable so minus 1 star.
"I like" 7/26/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Sessions Chain Long Sleeve
  • Pros:  Fits Well,
  • Cons:  Only owning one,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Well

Experience:   I like mine. I dont tend to wear it very often in the summer season, but it still get the job done. Most importantly it fits true to size.
"Good backcountry" 7/24/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Salomon Czar
  • Pros:  Price, Reliable, Rocker tip for use in resort days and backcountry
  • Cons:  Annoying to use on icey days,

Experience:   These are decent skis indeed for the backcountry, but less so in a resort. For an icey day, I wouldnt use these guys. But on a packed powder day or even a little more fluffy day, I would indeed use these skis. In the backcountry, paired up with some marker dukes, they get the job done very well!
"Very reliable" 7/24/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Salomon Gun
  • Pros:  Fast, Durrable,
  • Cons:  Not too good in the park, heavy,

Experience:   I have used my buddies skies which are the guns. They are fast, reliable, little chatter and cut through everything. I did find them a little on the heavy side, and they werent really a good park ski, but as an all around mountain ski they are reliable and fast! I would defiantly borrow them again :)
"Very good" 7/24/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Marker Duke Large
  • Pros:  Durrable, Reliable,
  • Cons:  Heavy!,

Experience:   These are wicked back country bindings. I have been with many skiers and this is definatly an industry standard. They are reliable, durrable and all around solid bindings. The only downside that I can see is that they are heavy and with big fatty pow skis for the back country, I heard complaints about lugging them around. This isnt so back for a 200 lbs guy, but a 100lbs girl(or some dudes), these guys are a little to over heavy for them.
"Love Mine" 7/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Board Case
  • Pros:  padding, Fit,

Experience:   I have had my bag and loved it. It has been on bus tours, strapped to the roofs of cars, thrown down hills, through crawl spaces and even survived me deciding to wash it. I would purchase again in a heartbeat!
"Back country only" 7/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Burton S-Series
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Off Trail
  • Pros:  Price,
  • Cons:  Heavy, Not stable at high speeds on groomers, interface

Experience:   As far as splitboards go, Burton makes the best priced board. It is back country ONLY however. In the resorts, it is not stable on groomers or ice, the interface will pop apart causing wonderful chatter and it is VEYR heavy and awkward to control. ALso, with the voile interface, the bindings sit a 1/4 inch above the deck of the board causing weird balance issues that make it awkward to adjust from a tradional snowboard to a splitboard. BUT, it is good in powder days, for skinning up and accention and is much better that boot packing up steep slopes in boots while your friends with AT skis make fun of you.
"Meh" 7/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 DC Donon
  • Pros:  Price, Decently Waterproof,
  • Cons:  The gaitor is uncomfortable and looks ridiculous, The suspenders are useless, Runs big and baggy
  • Pant Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Okay at a discounted price

Experience:   I bought these to replace my arctryx pants that are wearing out. I am comparing a cheaper pants to a $450 set of pants, but even so I was disappointed. The powder skirt on the waist was uncomfortable, looked horrible and didnt clip into my DC spectrum jacket. The suspenders were useless, just cosmetic and I was disappointed as I hate wearing belts when I board. The fit was also MASSIVE and with a bright yellow board pants, you dont want them so long that when you walk, you step on and mess up the back of the ski pants making some nice brown and black skid marks on the pant legs. However, I would buy again in a smaller size, a less bright color and at 65% off like I did before. At that price they are decently waterproofed and are priced accordingly.
"Wicked!" 7/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 DC Allegiance
  • Pros:  FOrgiving, Adjustablility, comfort
  • Cons:  the boas coming loose,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  stiff
  • Shoe Size:  9
  • Boot Size:  9

Experience:   I have used this boot for 3 solid seasons for about 70 days of riding including backcountry hiking up hills. They are just becoming worn out now. I wish they didnt dis continue these as I think they are the most comfortable boot that I have ever worn on the slopes. I use these boots for backcountry, the park, groomers and powder. Very responsive, and easy to control my plank down the slopes in any conditions.
"Worth 50% off" 7/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Burton Vapor
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Off Trail,Powder,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Fast, Stable at high speeds
  • Cons:  Durrability,

Experience:   I have had the pleasure of using this stick as my main board for the past 4 riding seasons. Got it brand new 50% off and have never regretted the purchase. I paired with some CO2 bindings and loved it! I board about 20+ days a year mostly on bombing on groomers, dodging trees and on big powder days. I am 5'10 at 180 lbs and I use a 157. It is fast and easy to manouver. It is so fast and agressive that on icey days it just wants to take off and it does take some skill to slow it down. This is NOT a begineer board. I do have a core shot, and have been riding with it for the past 2 seasons. I did a Ptex patch job, and keeping this board away from the park, it has lasted. I would NOT use this board as a park board but from going over cliffs, kickers and trees off the trail, the edges have been beat, the top sheet has been scratched and dented badley and I have a core shot that is 4 inches long and one inch wide. It still goes great however, but I have kept it from the hard packed park to prevent my tail from snapping in 2.
"Decent" 7/1/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton X8
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,Low Speeds,Park,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Durrable, Cost, forgiving
  • Cons:  supporting the burton regime, losing bolts,

Experience:   I have this board from 2009 and is the bright green camber model. The newer boards are rocker and much better suited for park and buttering. I think this board is decent for the price, but I wasnt blown away by it. It is very soft and forgiving with smaller jumps but I haven't taken it over anything too crazy to really rate it on jumps. It is a moderately fast board, and stable to moderate speeds. I like the EST in that it can be adjusted BUT with only 2 bolts, its easy for one to come loose and lose a $50 bolt. I have used it for a total of 6 days last season, with good results doing manuals, nollies and landing small jump off kickers and through the trees. I would buy again at 50% off though but not a full price.
"Best bindings ever for the money" 7/1/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Mission
  • Pros:  Price, Durrability, comfort
  • Cons:  Supporting the evil burton regime,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   I have these in gold/camo mens medium. I use them with my splitboard or my old salomon stick. They are VERY comfortable, reliable and stable. They have comfrotable high backs and are solid for any freestyle around the slopes. I dont go in the park, so I cant rate them on that aspect but they are soft and forgiving enough to charge a double black and land kickers on hte side of the runs. I would buy again, and even debate full price!
"SO warm!" 6/30/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 DC Therm
  • Pros:  WARM, SO many Pockets,
  • Cons:  Zipper breaks, Too long and Baggy,
  • Jacket Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  excessively baggy and long

Experience:   I have this jacket in a Mens Large. I fits like a mens Xl. I wanted a baggier jacket, but this is ridiculous. Its too long to be functional as a mens large when I expected to have a baggier jacket, not a long to my knees overcoat. I ripped the bottom where the zipper attaches bacause it is too long. The zipper tabs also broke leaving me to rig up something with a keychain so I can move the zipper up and down. That aside, it is stupid warm. I was in a -20 degree day at Whistler, and with just a base layer, I was warm with this jacket. I give it 5 stars for just based on warmth but -2 stars due to fit and durrability
"wickeed" 6/30/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton C60
  • Pros:  Light, Comfortable, durrable
  • Cons:  Cosmetically not durrable,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I love these bindings. Comfortable, easy to ratchet up, responsive and reliable. The only negative I can say about these are that after a few times the paint starts to chip off. No biggie but Id expect more from a $300 pair of bindings ;)
"They get the job done" 6/30/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Custom
  • Pros:  cost,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   I have this binding in black and size M. I use these with my Burton X8 snowboard. I find these bindings are a get what you pay for kind of binding. The straps seem to slip loose once they are tight, and its hard to get the straps ratchetted down to a desired tightness withough the ratchet just slipping not tightening the binding. I find if you press down on the top of the ankle strap or the toe cap it will ratchet easier, but is a hassle. I dont think I would buy this again, but the price was right, and I will get my moneys worth out of them so I give them 3 stars for price and comfort, but they are hard to use and come loose so beware.
