"handy and cheap" 10/6/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (3) No

  • Name: 2007 Dakine Replacement Snowboard Files
  • Pros:  low-cost, two different hatch patterns,
  • Cons:  doesnt last too long,

Experience:   these files are identical to the ones that come with the dakine edge tuner tool. on each file, one edge is cross-hatched and the other has a one-directional hatch at about 45 degrees. i find the cross-hatched side to be more abrasive and good for running the first couple of passes. then i switch to the single hatch side to clean up the edge. the only downside is that the material hardness isnt very high and thus you will begin to see the wear on the file features dull out after 3-4 sharpening sessions
"light, easy, does the job" 10/6/2011

  • Name: 2009 Burton Space Sack Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  lightweight, low-profile, low-cost
  • Cons:  only 1 compartment,

Experience:   if you're just looking for something to hold your gear and prevent it from scratched and knicks, this is it. super lightweight and fabric is actually quite tough and will resist a good amount of abrasion (from sand, dirt, mud, cement, etcetc) note that this is NOT a padded bag, not even a little bit. my biggest gripe is that it only had 1 big compartment. plenty of room to fit board boots and bindings, but no little compartment inside nor out for keys, phone, wallet, etc all in all a good bag for 25 bucks
"great goggles" 2/5/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Vonzipper Fishbowl Goggles
  • Pros:  exceptional field of vision, lightweight, does not fog
  • Cons:  may be too large for small to small-medium faces,

Experience:   I have a large face and large head. These are currently my favorite goggles. I've tried several expensive goggles over the past few years (the closest one to the Fishbowl has been the Oakley Crowbars). The field of view is great and I cant imagine switching back to a smaller goggle. The two-layer thermal lens does not fog up. The only con is that this may not be for all face/head shapes and sizes. My friend who has a skinnier head said the goggle was too wide and did not seal well around his cheeks. If you have a large face/head though, these are a must.
"they're not kidding about lightweight" 1/18/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 DC MLF Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  High Speeds,Jumps,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  VERY lightweight, great pop,
  • Cons:  not for buttering,

Experience:   The two boards I've been riding the most have been the Nitro Team (traditional camber, moderately stiff) and Sierra RC (reverse camber, moderately soft) to give you a sense of where this review is coming from. DC wasn't kidding when they advertise this as lightweight. It has excellent pop and once in the air, feels very effortless to bring the board up to your body or do 180s. This board is lighter than both boards mentioned above. The edges hold well on harder surfaces as with most TC boards, while landings felt soft due to the stiffness variation throughout the board. The only downside i noticed is that it's difficult to do flatland tricks due to the stiff nose and tail. I also found it a bit tough to ride through powder for the same reason
"convenient EST bindings for the casual boarder" 10/30/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2012 Burton Custom EST Snowboard Bindings
  • Pros:  fast adjustments,
  • Cons:  slips if not properly fixated,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I have these bindings with the Burton Custom Flying V board. The EST setup in general is very convenient compared to standard bindings. Adjustments are 3-4 times faster for me; this is especially helpful on multiday trips where i ride different styles on different days. I use a sharpie to mark the edges of the bindings for the different riding styles so i know where to return it to next time. In terms of performance, they don't feel as structurally solid compared to bindings like the Burton Cartels. However this should not be a problem unless if you're a aggressive/proficient park rider. The ratchets and straps are not great quality, but better than other discount bindings at the 100-125$ price range. Make sure you bring a screwdriver with you on the mountain. Because the binding is only held by 1 screw instead of 4, it will slip if that 1 screw is not properly tightened. Keep in mind that tight at room temperature does not mean tight on the slopes (metal shrinks with cold)
"a tad small, but still comfortable" 2/5/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Grenade Skeletor Beanie
  • Pros:  warm, color does not fade,
  • Cons:  slightly tight,
  • Fit:  Too small
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  feels tight at first, but relaxes throughout the day

Experience:   The color and graphics on this beanie true to the picture shown. The green is a bright green and does not fade (follow the instructions for washing, handwash using soap/mild detergent with warm water). Only downside is that it only comes in one size. I wear a hat size 7 3/8 and this is tight on me. It was a tad tight even for my buddy who wears 7 1/4. However the fit is not constrictive and actually relaxes throughout the day. After you take it off, it goes back to it's original size and the next time you wear it, same thing, starts out tight, then relaxes. Goggles fit over it fine, just a shame the strap covers the grenade logo
"good board going from C to RC" 12/25/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Reverse Crew Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomers,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Powder
  • Pros:  beginner-friendly, forgiving carving,
  • Cons:  edges rust easily,

Experience:   This is my first RC board so this review will be from the perspective of a traditional camber rider. I had trouble maintaining stability at high speeds, and felt a very noticeable lack of edge control on icier slopes compared to camber. Additionally, the v-rocker profile and softer flex makes landing jumps less forgiving. However the board is very playful and forgiving at low-to-med speeds. The soft flex makes board presses much easier. The rounded edges makes carving more forgiving because you can actually catch an edge and muscle your way out. Compared to camber, the board is also easier to control in powder when your weight is more towards your backfoot. This is a good and fun board to ride, just don't expect the same stability and edge control as camber.
"everything is great, except the highback adjustment" 12/11/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Rome S90 Snowboard Bindings
  • Pros:  soft and comfortable toestrap, tool-less strap adjustment,
  • Cons:  terrible highback adjustment design,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   There are plenty of reviews to describe the pros of this binding, so i'll focus on my one and only gripe: the highback adjustment. A good effort was made by the designer by making it a tool-less adjustment, however, the highback WILL NOT stay in place. I am a mild to moderately aggressive rider, and found myself having to readjust the highback every 2-3 runs (sometimes even after 1 run). I cant even imagine how much more annoying this would be for the aggressive riders. The adjustment tab unclicks itself when you put too much force on it, e.g. landing a jump, taking a hard turn, board presses. What's worst of all though, is that it becomes extremely difficult to adjust it when snow/ice is in the adjustment tab. So pretty much now you have a highback that does not stay in place, AND it's nearly impossible to re-adjust.
"hard to explain how awesome this is" 11/30/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Gravis Bb Omega Mid Skate Shoes Men's
  • Pros:  durable, 3 pairs of laces,
  • Cons:  thin plastic strap loop, too much pink,

Experience:   The fit of this shoe is consistent and comfortable, as expected from the gravis brand. The presentation is excellent. The shoe comes in a non-standard black box gravis box. Inside there is actually a velvet drawstring bag to carry the shoes. Not necessary, but awesome nonetheless. Next, the thin paper lining is silver. Lastly, there are three pairs of laces, blue, white, and pink. There is a lot of attention to detail on the layering of the panels and the stitching. The stitching is clean (some imperfections, but hard to notice), the side-to-front and side-to-back panels are reinforced with a thick thread (you can see it in the picture) The piece that holds the straps together is a thin piece of plastic. It may actually be strong, but it looks fragile so i dont want to try my luck by pulling on the strap too hard. Secondly, pink is very dominant on this shoe. The liner is pink, the default laces is pink (although u can change to blue or white), the thread that holes the panels together is pink, the writing on the back is pink voice of the ghetto, and finally the sole is pink.
"does the job " 10/6/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (3) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Edge Tuner Tool
  • Pros:  two bevel options, small,
  • Cons:  side-edge tuning only,

Experience:   this is a small, light, handy filer that can easily fit into a bag or pockets. it gives you the option of 88 or 90 degree bevels. as a caution, this is ONLY FOR THE SIDE EDGE. do not try to sharpen the bottom edge because the tool is not designed with a support to properly hold the file for bottom edge filing. I learned this the hard way when i was wondering why i couldnt keep a steady motion. I've seen these go for 9 bucks if you search around
"best. stomp pad. period" 9/9/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (3) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine Spike Snowboard Stomp
  • Pros:  fricken huge, high spikes,
  • Cons:  watch those air bubbles,

Experience:   i got two of these and will be getting one more. i havent too many stomp pads before (maybe 5 total), but this is by far the best one. you couldnt fall off this guy if you tried. the spikes really dig into ur boot the only comment is to watch out for air bubbles when ure putting it on. because it covers such a large surface area, make sure you start pressing down from the center and work your way out. if u get air bubbles stuck it in the middle its going to suck trying to ease them outward
"nice graphics" 9/2/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (5) No

  • Name: 2012 Spacecraft Snowcat TShirt Men's
  • Pros:  cool graphics,
  • Cons:  fit half-size too large,
  • Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  L
  • Description:  this feels about a half size larger than the sizing

Experience:   the fit is half-size too large when it first arrives. i havent washed/dried it enough times to see how much it shrinks, but off the bat if you're a borderline med/large, go with the med
"excellent binding for the price" 2/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2008 Morrow Invasion Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  lightweight, durable, low-cost
  • Cons:  not much support, limited adjustability,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   this was my first pair of bindings and they will not break. i rode them for 4-5 seasons, going from completely noob to advancing intermediate. I started all-mountain and progressed until i was going down black diamonds at full speed and taking aggressive turns. bindings always held up. the past 2 seasons i started doing park. small to mid sized jumps and boxes. again, no problem at all. soft flex is forgiving. recently ive moved on to burton cartels, but the invasions are still perfectly good. for $60 these are probably the best pair of bindings you can get.
"very solid" 2/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  solid construction, high adjustability,
  • Cons:  slightly heavy,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   i have no complaints about this binding. solid construction that you can feel from the time you open the box to when u actually strap in and ride very adjustable. heel-back is simple, just turn the wing dial thing. Straps are easily adjusted too. the toe-strap also allows you to trap to your toe-boot, or the top side of your boot
"solid goggles" 2/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2009 Spy Soldier
  • Pros:  high-quality,
  • Cons:  slightly limited FOV,

Experience:   these are very solid goggles. when you grasp the goggles in your hands, feel the strap, the frame, and lens, you know it is well-built i got 4 of these when they were on sale (approx $50). Only complaint is that the field of view is slightly small compared to some of the other Spy and other top-brand goggles. but this is more of a preference/depends on your head size
"good board for transitioning from mountain to park" 2/19/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Nitro Team Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Switch Riding
  • Pros:  great all-around board,
  • Cons:  extruded base,

Experience:   this is pretty much a fusion between an all-mountain directional board and a twin park board. It has a setback stance so it's still a directional board, but it's also got twin ends the flex is definitely softer than true all-mountain boards, but still stiff compared to a park board. As described in the title, i feel like its a good board for people who want to try out the park, but still used to the stability and turning ability of riding fast
"pay $3 more for a REAL stomp pad" 2/19/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (4) No

  • Name: 2005 Dakine Snowboard Stomp
  • Pros:  none,
  • Cons:  completely useless,

Experience:   This isn't really a stomp pad...more of a piece of foam with adhesive on one side. for anyone who has bought new bindings, it's pretty much the same kind of stomp pad that comes free with the bindings. first time off the lift it may seem to be okay, but once snow water and ice gets on it, you might as well just stand on the bare board don't put this on your board. you're just going to end up peeling it off and its going to leave a sticky/uneven surface on your board that will make it harder for you to put on a REAL stomp pad
"great bang for the buck" 2/19/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Space Sack Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  big compartment, lightweight, low-cost
  • Cons:  only 1 compartment,

Experience:   this is an excellent bag for the price. i got 2 on sale for $15 each. if you have a decent board but dont want to shell out $50 bucks to protect it, this is a great alternative. also like it because it's lightweight. downside to that though is that there's no padding/liner. Other downside is there is only 1 compartment, so you cant split up multiple boards, or other gear like gloves and stuff without having to search around.
"good, but just make sure you dont jog in these" 8/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Skullcandy FMJ
  • Pros:  solid sound quality, solid worksmanship (minus volume adjustment),
  • Cons:  not suitable for all ear sizes, potentially problematic volume adjustment,

Experience:   I got these on sale for about $40 so it was quite a good deal for me. they come with 3 sizes of ear buds so one of them should fit you. however the perpendicular design can make it awkward to stay in your ear. i gave these to my girlfriend and it fits her a lot better than it fit me in terms of sound quality, there's nothing much to complain about. retail price can go as high as $80, in which case you should probably look for another pair, but when these are on sale go for them now the only big issue. there's a volume adjustment bar on the cord itself. this is really convenient, but is not water/sweat proof. if you jog or do other workouts and have this thing dangling in front of you and catching your sweat, you should prepare on searching for new headphones
"good, but go for the FMJ instead" 8/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2010 Skullcandy Smokin Buds
  • Pros:  relatively cheap, good sound quality for casual listener,
  • Cons:  not as cool/flashy as other skullcandy products,

Experience:   I tried both these headphones as well as the more expensive Full Metal Jacket model. For the casual listener, this pair is plenty good. but if you are more picky about your range and full base, go with the FMJ. They retail up to $80, which is pretty steep, but you can pull them off for $40s if you can find a good sale
