"Tight fit but decent gloves" 1/31/2011
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton GoreTex Gloves
  • Pros:  Waterproof, Includes liners,
  • Cons:  Runs small, Bulky,

Experience:   I've owned the 2008 Burton Goretex gloves in medium and recently bought the 2009 version because the old ones started to rip at the finger seems. The 2008s fit very well for my hands when using the liner with the gloves. This was not the case for the 2009s. The 2009 liners are a bit thicker and when used with the glove is a very tight fit. The goretex construct of the gloves will keep your hands warm and dry. There's a pocket on the top of the glove designed for inserting a hand warmer but from experience, it doesn' heat up the hand very well.
"Dakine Pocket Tool" 1/18/2012
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2012 Dakine Torque Driver
  • Pros:  Very handy, Easy to carry, Makes adjustments simple
  • Cons:  Bits will rust,

Experience:   I always carry my pocket tool with me every time i go riding just in case I need to make any adjustments to my board or my friends' boards. This tool will let you adjust your board or bindings with ease. The only setback I find with this particular pocket tool is the end cap that twists off. This is where you store the bits. If you get the bits wet and you seal them inside the storage component, the bits will quickly rust, which becomes pretty annoying. If you do happen to get the bits wet, dry them of before putting them into the storage compartment.
"Burton Triads" 1/18/2012
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Triad Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Soft flex, Comfortable, Buttery smooth rachets
  • Cons:  Highback mesh design feels fragile,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   The Burton Triads are extremely comfortable bindings with plenty of padding for great absorption of impact. The ankle straps are quite cushy and gives you a great amount of comfort. With Burton's smooth glide buckles, strapping in is effortless. The Triads are very comparable to the Burton Cartels and for most people it won't feel very different except the highback feels a bit softer than that of the Cartel. If you are looking for a stiffer binding for bombing down the mountain, these might not be the best choice but they will hold their own all mountain. I have put over 10 days on my Triads and overall, these are great bindings that I highly recommend
"Great shirt, great graphics" 7/13/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2011 Sierra Headphones TShirt Men's
  • Pros:  Nice graphic, Sierra branding,
  • Cons:  Not as soft as I expected, Shrinks after first wash,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   I love this shirt and the graphics are well designed. I really like the fact that it still says sierra snowboard on it. It's a very unique shirt and i've gotten many compliments on it (even though it's summer time). The shirt isn't as soft as other shirts I own but it's not a huge deal. It will shrink after the first wash.

"Best gift.... EVER" 1/25/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2020 E- Gift Certificate
  • Pros:  Flexibility, Ease of use,
  • Cons:  none,

Experience:   If you have a friend/bf/gf/sister/brother/etc that loves snowboarding and you have no clue what to get them as a gift, this is it. With Trusnows amazing discounts and their vast selection of gear and apparel, no one's going to be disappointed to get this as a gift. Unlike other reviewers, I found this to be extremely easy to use. After check out, you can email this to your recipient and it will send them an email with access to this gift certificate.
"DC Massplaid Full Zip Hoodie" 1/22/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 DC Massplaid Full Zip Hoodie
  • Pros:  Well fitted, Good spring hoodie, Doesn't fuzzy up after washing
  • Cons:  none,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  S
  • Fits Like:  S
  • Description:  Well fitted

Experience:   This is a very nice hoodie that I'm very happy with. It fits very well but not too tightly. I've had this hoodie for over a year now and after many washes, the material doesn't fuzzy. The inside is lined with a lighter fleece that is fairly warm. I use it more so for every day wear more than for snowboarding but this will work well for warmer days as a second layer. I'm 5'6 and 140lb and I bought this in Small.
"Silky smooth even at high speeds" 1/12/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Jeremy Jones Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Park,Powder,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Very stable at high speeds, Mid flex,

Experience:   Burton got it right with the Jeremy. It's a very fun board for all mountain riding but also flexible and forgiving enough to goof off on. I've used my Jeremy for over 2 seasons and I absolutely love it. It holds edges very well and I feel very confident riding with it. It takes jumps very well and handles speeds very comfortably. +1 for the Jeremy

"Crew vs Reverse Crew" 1/6/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Crew Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Powder
  • Pros:  Stable at high speeds, Fast,
  • Cons:  None,

Experience:   I have a Reverse Crew and my buddy bought the Crew and I was able to test ride both today and I gotta say both are excellent boards. If you can afford both. Buy both. If you're only able to buy 1, then you'll have to make a very difficult decision. Sierra Reverse Crew: First off, the Reverse Crew is fast! (might be the wax I just put on) but the board wants to take off. What surprised me was that it rides extremely smooth even at high speeds. The Reverse Crew is much softer making it a very playful board, making tail presses like butter. Compared to the Crew, the Reverse Crew seems to be more responsive making it easier to carve. It does go over bumps with some pop and does want to launch you up a bit but I love that about this board. I would recommend the Reverse Crew for anyone starting out snowboarding. Sierra Crew: The Crew is a very awesome board as well. Compared to the Reverse Crew, the Crew is a much stiffer board. It's definitely not the stiffest board I've ridden but it feels very sturdy and extremely stable at high speeds. In choppy conditions, you will feel a lot less of the crusty granular snow. I felt very confident riding this board at high speeds and highly recommend it as well. To put this in another light, the Reverse Crew is like a turbo charged V4 while the Crew is like a V6.
"Great overall scraper" 2/19/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine 10in Snowboard Scraper
  • Pros:  Ease of use, Doesn't damage board, Easy to hold
  • Cons:  Dulls quickly,

Experience:   This scraper is overall a good scraper as it's easy to hold and you can really scrape deep to remove wax. It won't damage your board since it's made of plastic. After a few uses the edges does get dull but it can easily be sharpened with sandpaper. It is a much better scraper than triangle scrapers that are commonly sold. If you can get the metal scraper, that's another good scraper to have in your kit. However, if I had to chose one, I'd go with this one because of it's low risk of damaging the board.
"Ergonomic disaster" 2/19/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine Triangle Snowboard Scraper
  • Pros:  Does its' job,
  • Cons:  Easily dulls, Difficult shape to hold,

Experience:   This scraper is terrible. The triangle shape of the scraper makes it difficult to hold and difficult to apply pressure, which then makes it a longer process during wax scraping. The scraper does it's job but definitely not the most efficient compared to the alternatives. The Dakine 10 inch scraper works much better but both of these scrapers face the same problem in which it dulls easily. I find the Dakine metal scraper to be a much better tool, however, it should be used cautiously as the metal edges and corners can potentially damage the base.
"Dakine Boot Locker" 2/7/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Dakine Boot Locker Men's
  • Pros:  Convenient tarp lining, Overall size and capacity, Shoulder straps and handles

Experience:   This Dakine bag is perfect not only for day trips but longer trips as well. The upper compartment has a large capacity and i can easily fit my gear and some of my girlfriend's gear. I can fit 2 helmets, 2 goggle cases (have to put them inside the helmet), 2 pairs of gloves and more. It can easily fit a helmet, goggles, gloves and clothing for a weekend trip. The lower compartment fits my size 10 boots with ease. One cool thing about the lower compartment is that it is waterproof lined so you can stand in it when changing your socks/boots/shoes. Shoulder straps are decently padded. Handles make carrying the bag an option if the padded strap isn't your thing.
"Dakine Metal Scraper" 1/18/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Dakine Metal Scraper
  • Pros:  Easy to use, Quickly removes wax, Durable
  • Cons:  May damage board base if inexperienced,

Experience:   A metal scraper is definitely a key component to a tune kit and the Dakine metal scraper does not disappoint. It removes wax much quicker and with much less effort than a standard plastic scraper, however, I would caution against using the metal scraper vigorously as it may damage the board base if not careful. If you are doing base repairs with ptex, the metal scraper makes taking off excess ptex a breeze.
"Forum Seeker Bandana" 2/1/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Forum Seeker Bandanna Cstd
  • Pros:  Warm, Thick,
  • Cons:  Stiff material,

Experience:   This bandana is fairly large measuring at 21x21. It's a fairly warm bandana as it is thicker than others I've owned. The material is stiffer and can be a bit uncomfortable, but it does a good job at preventing wind from blowing into your face. Personally I don't really like this bandana because of the stiffness of it but it probably doesn't matter for a lot of others.
"Worthless" 1/31/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2005 Dakine Snowboard Stomp
  • Pros:  none,
  • Cons:  Offers no grip, Overly sized, Aesthetically unpleasant

Experience:   This pad has near zero value. The pad is large but offers no traction. Personally I would recommend Dakine stomp studs over this stomp pad as they work very well.
"Great wax" 1/26/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Nitrous Wax 3oz
  • Pros:  Easy to apply, Easy to scrape , Maintains board base
  • Cons:  none,

Experience:   This wax is great for use during colder temperatures. It's a very easy wax to apply but more importantly, very easy to scrape. I've used other brands of wax including Dakine and One Ball Jay and I find it is quite on par with the more popular One Ball Jay waxes. One piece of advice is to avoid soy wax as it tends to be difficult to scrape and flakes a lot, making clean up much more of a hassle.
"Good All Temp Wax" 1/26/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Nitrous All Temp Wax 3oz
  • Pros:  Universal wax, Easy to apply, Easy to scrape
  • Cons:  None,

Experience:   This is a good all temp wax that's easy to apply but more importantly easy to scrape. I have used many other waxes including Dakine and One Ball Jay waxes. I would say it's comparable to the One Ball Jay waxes. From using different waxes, the one suggestion I do have is avoid using soy waxes. They are very difficult to scrape and messy to deal with.
"Highly recommended" 1/25/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine 10" Scraper
  • Pros:  Solid, Easy to hold,
  • Cons:  No corner notch for cleaning edges,

Experience:   I've used this scraper for over 20 scrape jobs and it's still holding up very well. The shape and size of this particular scraper makes it very easy to hold unlike some of the triangle scrapers on the market. This factor comes into play especially if you plan on scraping more than one board at a time. The only disadvantage to this scraper is that there is no notched corner like some of the other scrapers. A notched corner makes for removing wax on the edges much easier. However, it's still possible to clean the edges with this scraper but takes slightly more time than other scrapers.
"Light weight with bluetooth music" 1/25/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 RED Frequency Audex Motorola Bluetooth
  • Pros:  Bluetooth music and phone connectivity, Light weight, Chin strap very comfortable
  • Cons:  Expensive, Headphone signal flaky , Headphones bulky

Experience:   I have used this helmet for 2 seasons now and it's still very solid. The helmet is very lightweight and very durable. The bluetooth capability of this helmet will connect to any blackberry or an mp3 device that supports bluetooth and it will allow you to listen to music wirelessly as well as answer calls. The headset has a built in mic that will allow you to enjoy your calls while on the slopes. The one flaw with this is that it will pick up wind very well and makes the call near impossible. It does work very well on the chair lifts. The headset is on the expensive side but the bluetooth capability is great. The headset is not perfect in that music becomes choppy frequently, making it annoying, but I have not tested to find the root cause of this. I have used this with my blackberry curve and the music is choppy, but it is a tradeoff for wireless music. I have not tested this with any other bluetooth enabled device so I don't know if it is an issue with my blackberry or the helmet. The headphones are a bit bulky and stick out about an inch. Aesthetically this is unpleasant, but once again a tradeoff for bluetooth capability.
"Not very useful" 1/24/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Burton Audex Ipod Rf Control
  • Pros:  Wirelessly control music,
  • Cons:  Control not very responsive, Difficult to use with gloves, Small buttons

Experience:   The concept is good but the execution of this product is pretty poor. The controller isn't very responsive at times and the tiny buttons make it extremely difficult to control if you have gloves on. I wouldn't bother with this product.
"A little peace of mind" 1/24/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Key Lock
  • Pros:  Compact, Deters theft, Light weight
  • Cons:  Wire prone to jamming,

Experience:   This is a good lock and definitely a good investment to get some peace of mind. Although a lock doesn't stop someone from taking your board if they really wanted it, it does deter people from just picking up your board and walking away. One thing with this lock is that the wire is prone to jamming. I have owned one and the wire jammed after some extensive use. None the less, still a good investment.
"Solid lock" 1/24/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Bakoda Cable Lock
  • Pros:  Solid, Deters board theft,
  • Cons:  Coil hard to attach to board, Bulky to store in pockets, Can't chose unlock combo

Experience:   This is a much more solid lock than most of the other wire type locks that are easy to snip with a pair of wire cutters. The only set back with this lock I found is that it's a lot bulkier to store in the pockets while riding. One thing with this lock is that the combination is pre set so you can't customize the unlock combo.
"Basic edge tuner" 1/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Edge Tuner Tool
  • Pros:  Inexpesive, Easy to use,
  • Cons:  Construct is very cheap plastic,

Experience:   This tool is a very basic edge tuner that's good for the side edge. It's easy to use and effective. This tool is not good for base tuning. For base tuning, it's better to use a different type of file. When using this file, make sure to look at the file and determine the proper direction to file. There are many other types of files out there but this one is one of the most basic, inexpensive and easy to use ones.
"RED Audex Subwoofer headphones" 1/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 RED Audex Subwoofer Ear Pad Accessory
  • Pros:  Adds music to your RED helmet, Quick mute button,
  • Cons:  Subwoofer doesn't add much value, Bulky subwoofer add on, Subwoofer add on easy to lose

Experience:   For anyone who owns a RED helmet and wants to listen to music while riding, these headphones aren't a bad choice. Upon first use, I was not very amazed by them, although I am content that these allow me to listen to music while riding. Before buying these, please check your helmet to see if they are Quick Clip compatible. Once you find out, also find out if they are Quick Clip I or Quick Clip II compatible as RED changed how the clip mechanism works in 2009 I believe. The Quick Clip I is a solid clip while the Quick Clip II is a clip with a hole and two slits for attachment. These headphones keep my ears warm while riding. Some downsides I found with these headphones is the subwoofer adds zero value to these headphones. They really don't do much in my opinion. Also, the subwoofer attachment is the little remote that connects the helmet and your mp3 device. One end is a 3.5mm jack and the other a special connector that connects to the helmet. If you lose this subwoofer attachment, there is no real replacement for it so your headphonese are now deemed useless. None the less, I enjoyed using these headphones.
"RED Helmet Bluetooth addon" 1/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 RED Audex Bluetooth Ear Pad Accessory
  • Pros:  Wireless music while riding, Ability to answer phone calls, Changing tracks and volume
  • Cons:  Headphones look bulky, Quick Clip I compatible only,

Experience:   These headphone add ons are great for anyone that owns a RED helmet and wants to listen to their tracks wirelessly while riding. This works great with my Blackberry. Before you buy these headphones, make sure they will be compatible with your helmet. RED has two clip mechanisms, mainly differentiated by the plastic clips that attach to the helmet. Their Quick Clip I system are tabs that are solid while their Quick Clip II system are tabs that also have a hole and two slits for attachment to the helmet. These headphones are very solid in construct and very easy to recharge either using the included USB AC charger or using USB wire and plugging it into your laptop. On the right headphone is the play/pause button and also a wheel for changing tracks. On the left headphone is a button for picking up phone calls and changing the volume. Phone calls on this headphone works quite well while stationary or on the chair lifts but wind noise will completely kill your call experience. Also, with 2 separate Blackberry phones that I've used this with, the music can be very inconsistant and cuts out but for the ability to listen to music wirelessly, I am quite content with these headphones.

"Definitely use before waxing" 1/22/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Supertune Base Cleaner 8oz
  • Pros:  Removes dirt from base, Helps prep base for waxing,
  • Cons:  No instructions, Would be helpful if could be sprayed,

Experience:   I have been using Dakine's base cleaner to prep the boards before I wax them. This base cleaner will help you remove any dirt that is on the bottom of the board so nothing goes into the pores when waxing. There are no instructions on how to use this stuff but I put it into a small spray bottle and it works great. Wipe off the base with a paper towel or fiberlene cloth after applying the cleaner and you'll see all the dirt that accrues on the base.
"Great for base repair, use plastic for wax" 1/22/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine Metal Scraper
  • Pros:  Strong and solid metal, Good for base repair,
  • Cons:  none,

Experience:   Dakine continues to produce solid products. This scraper is an ideal scraper for base repairs using PTEX and it works very well removing excess PTEX. Some people say it is easier to use a metal scraper for removing wax but the solid metal edges make it easy to damage the base if not careful. I would caution anyone who plans to use this for removing wax.
"Dakine Stomp Studs" 1/21/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Pyramid Studs
  • Pros:  Great traction, 3M tape that holds very well,
  • Cons:  none,

Experience:   These stomp studs are my top choice for anyone looking for stomp studs or a stomp pad. These come in a pack of 9 but you definitely don't need to use 9 for one board. I was able to use 3 per board, allowing me to use this pack for 3 separate boards. I applied 3 in a triangle pattern and the traction works very well. These studs have 3M tape on the bottom side that allows these to stick very well to the board. A tip about these studs, make sure the surface you're applying to is completely dry and then use a hair dryer to warm up the 3M tape before applying. Before I tried this trick, I have lost studs in the past but they're all still there now even after 20+ days on the slopes.
"Decent base cleaner" 1/20/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Supertune Base Cleaner 4oz
  • Pros:  Helps clean base, Removes dirt, Prepares base for waxing
  • Cons:  None,

Experience:   I would recommend the Dakine Supertune Base Cleaner for anyone who plans on waxing their board or skis. This base cleaner helps remove all the dirt from the base and preps the board nicely so when you wax, you're not waxing dirt particles into the pores. It's as simple as spraying this on and wiping it off with a paper towel or fiberlene cloths. +1 for base cleaners.
"Everything you need to tune your board" 1/20/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Super Tune Kit
  • Pros:  Complete kit for tuning, Handy carrying case, Iron works great
  • Cons:  Not a lot of wax, Brush too small to buff after waxing,

Experience:   This is a basic kit with everything necessary for anyone who wants to start tuning their own equipment. The iron works very well and is easy to use for even those with no prior experience. The side edging tool is a very basic one with 2 angle settings. 88 degrees and 90 degrees. There are many other edge tools on the market but the one included is decent for basic tunes. I usually use mine on 88 degrees. Also, the file has arrows indicating the direction of use. Make sure you check this before proceeding with the edge sharpening. It comes with a pretty decend scraper that is solid and easy to hold. It's much better than the Burton Tri Scraper which becomes tiring to hold after a while. It also comes with PTEX and a metal scraper for base repairs. Forum users at trusnow seem to suggest using the metal scraper only for base repair and not for scraping wax as it may damage the base of the board. This is a solid buy and I highly recommend it. Do buy a new brush though. The one included is way too small. The brush is used after scraping to smoothen the wax job.
"Great scraper" 1/20/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine 10 inch Scraper
  • Pros:  Sturdy, Easy to hold, Larger than other scrapers
  • Cons:  No notch for scraping edges,

Experience:   I've been using this scraper for over 20 scrape jobs and it still works very well. The large rectangular size of the scraper makes it easy to hold with two hands compared to other triangle shaped scrapers such as the Burton one. The one down fall to this scrap is the lack of a notch. A notched scrapper makes it easier to clean wax on edges. This scraper can still do it but not as simple as the notched scrapers. I would chose the Dakine 10 over the Burton Tri Scraper.
"Not the best scraper" 1/19/2011

  • Name: 2011 Burton Tri Scraper Snowboard Tool
  • Pros:  Inexpensive, Groove for cleaning edges,
  • Cons:  Difficult to hold after a while,

Experience:   This scraper is not the best scraper I've ever used. The triangle design makes it difficult and tiring to hold, especially if you decide to tune more than one board at a time. The little groove on one of the corners is helpful in scraping off wax from the edges. Personally I like using the Dakine 10 scraper more because it's more comfortable to use, but that scraper doesn't have the little groove. If I had to chose, I think I'd still chose the Dakine scraper.

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Adjustable Tuning Iron
  • Pros:  Easy to use, Adjustable temperature dial, Inexpensive
  • Cons:  none,

Experience:   This is a great iron for anyone who wants to keep their snowboard/skis nicely waxed. It's an easy to use iron that anyone can use. This is the first iron I ever bought for waxing and it's as easy as plugging it in. It has a neat little stand at the edge that allows you to sit it up so the iron part isn't touching a surface. Highly recommended for anyone that wants to wax their own equipment.
"Complete kit but..." 1/18/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Deluxe Tune Kit
  • Pros:  Has everything you need, Basic tools,
  • Cons:  Still need an iron, Limited instructions, Brush is terrible

Experience:   This kit definitely comes with everything you need but I would the tools are very basic. It comes with wax but I don't have confidence in the stuff included. I actually bought an iron and some all temp one ball jay wax that works like a charm. The plastic scraper is nice and I have used it on all my boards with no problem. It also comes with a metal scraper. I haven't used this yet. Some people says it works faster than the plastic scraper but it has a chance of causing base damage. It will work better for base repairs in conjunction with the PTEX. The edge sharpening tool is a very basic tool but it works. One side is for an 88 degree angle while the other is for a 90 degree angle. Look at the file closely. There are arrows on the file on the tool that indicate the direction it should go while filing. I haven't used the PTEX sticks yet luckily, but it's there if I ever need to do base repair. The large file is decent for filing the bottom edge. If using it, 89 degrees is a common angle to file at. One trick I learned is to wrap duct tape about 25% up from the tail, wrap it about 5-6 times and this will form roughly an 89 degree angle while it lays on the board. The brush is pretty useless, I would recommend getting a larger brush. It's used to buff the board after scraping the wax. Buff it the length of the board from head to tail.

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Adjustable Tuning Iron 110v
  • Pros:  Easy to use, Keeps your boards nicely waxed, Inexpensive

Experience:   I've recently begun waxing my own board and I have the Dakine iron and it works like a charm. It's so simple to use and it's very inexpensive. I have used this for over 20 times and it still works great. This is the first iron I've ever used and I highly recommend this to anyone who is considering waxing your own board.
"Nice kit but not keen on the screwdriver" 1/18/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Deluxe Snowboard Kit
  • Pros:  Nice lock, All in one kit, Paste wax decent
  • Cons:  Screwdriver bits can rust, Stomp pad kind of tacky,

Experience:   This is a nice kit in that everything is there. The lock is nice to have. The lock is a nice deterant and stops someone from just walking off with your gear. The wax is a nice option to have, just buff it on your board before riding, it'll last the day. I still prefer to hot wax the night prior because it performs much better than the buff on stuff. The stomp pad is kind of tacky. My personal preference are the Dakine stomp studs which cost about $10 for a set of 9 and you really only need 3-4 per board. The screwdriver is nice to have in your pocket while you ride. It is a very important tool but the one included in this kit stores the bits in a cap at the handle, and I've had them rust in there. I now use the Dakine Cool Tool and they slide into the actual handle and it hasn't rusted yet.
"Favorite gloves" 1/17/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton GoreTex Snowboard Gloves Men's
  • Pros:  Goretex, Glove liners, Draw strings

Experience:   I've used these gloves for over 2 seasons now and they are hands down my favorite. These gloves come with liners that are great for those times you need to take off the glove to get a zipper or to tighten the boots. The drawstring system is a great feature to tighten the gloves around the cuffs. The other end of the draw string lets you easily loosen the glove as well.
"Light and compact" 1/17/2011

  • Name: 2010 Spacecraft Blue Room Wallet
  • Pros:  Compact, Light, Looks cool

Experience:   This is my second Spacecraft wallet. It is very compact in that it is a thin profile wallet that doesn't add too much bulk in your pocket. I love Spacecraft's fresh designs and this wallet doesn't dissapoint. It has 4 sections on each inside half of the wallet for cards. There is no divider on the inside for cash, but who needs that anyways. +1
"Can't go wrong with Burton socks" 1/17/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Emblem
  • Pros:  Keeps the feet warm, Inexpensive,
  • Cons:  Occasionally itches my leg,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Just right

Experience:   The Burton emblems are pretty nice socks. They're fairly inexpensive and definitely does it's job. They keep the feet warm enough even on cold 10 degree days. The only problem I have with them is they make my legs itchy occasionally. Not sure if it's because I'm a guy.
"Genius" 1/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Retro Disc
  • Pros:  Using non EST bindings on ICS boards,
  • Cons:  No padding,

Experience:   These discs are pure genius and will allow you to use any Burton binding on your ICS board. If you bought a new Burton ICS board but still want to rock out with non EST bindings, these plates are the way to go.

  • Name: 2008 Thats It Thats All Travis Rice Snowboard DVD
  • Pros:  For the love of snowboarding,

Experience:   This is simply AMAZING! If you love snowboarding then you'll absolutely love this movie. I watched it with my girlfriend and we both loved it. This movie is quite inspirational. You won't be disappointed.
"Sweet lil ride" 1/13/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Burton Avenue Womens
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Carving,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Powder
  • Pros:  Cute graphics, Very forgiving and easy to ride, Able to ride fast

Experience:   I got this board for my sister and she absolutely loves this board. She learned to ride on this board, but don't mistake this for a beginner's board. It is a softer board that is easy to jib and pop over rollers but also able to handle itself going downhill fast. Only bummer with this board is that the topsheet cracked at the nose after the first day of riding, but it was an easy fix with a file. +1 for this board.
"Not worth the money" 1/13/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Mint Snowboard Boots Women's
  • Pros:  Inexpensive, Speed Zone Lacing,
  • Cons:  Single Speed lace, Lack of upper/lower zone lacing,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  soft
  • Shoe Size:  7
  • Boot Size:  7

Experience:   This boot seems to be good for anyone learning to snowboard, but if you can invest a little bit more, I recommend the Burton Bootique instead. The Mint is a relatively inexpensive boot with Burton's Speed lacing system, however, it is a single string lacing system, meaning when you tighten the boot's laces, one string controls both the tightness at the toes as well as the ankle making it impossible to adjust the two zones separately. The Burton Bootique, which is slightly more expensive, has separate laces for the upper zone and the lower zone of the boot, giving the user more control in the amount of tension at the toes as well as the ankles. I wouldn't bother with the Mint.
"Good files for a good price" 1/12/2011

  • Name: 2007 Dakine Replacement Snowboard Files
  • Pros:  Smooth files, Great for edging,

Experience:   These files fit great in any quick filing tool. Fits great in my dakine tool kit file tool. Definitely worth the few bucks to keep your edges smooth
"Nice park bindings, soft flex" 1/11/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Triad
  • Pros:  Soft, Forgiving, Straps very comfortable
  • Cons:  Back hinge feels kind of flimsy,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   These are nice bindings but not my favorite. The honeycomb design on the high back makes it feel slightly flimsy. They are much softer than my Cartels and the straps feel very cushy making it very comfortable. They felt nice in the park but kind of soft for hard fast riding.
"Solid and Sweet" 1/11/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton CO2
  • Pros:  Stiff, Responsive, Solid
  • Flex:  stiff

Experience:   These are very aggressive bindings and are not for the feint of heart. I would say they're like strapping rockets to your feet. They are very stiff compared to other Burton bindings and noticably stiffer than the Missions, Cartels, and Triads. I've used these as well as the C60s and they're both very similar but I would say they have a little more give than the C60s. If you're an aggressive rider that does all mountain, these would be great bindings for you.
"Nice beginner/intermediate bindings" 1/11/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Mission
  • Pros:  High back, Toe caps,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Burton's Mission binding is a very good binding with a soft to mid flex and great for beginner/intermediate riders. They are very forgiving and great for learning, but I wouldn't recommend it for those who enjoy high speed and quick maneuverability. The binding construct is definitely a lot less solid than other Burton bindings such as the Cartel.
"Very nice pair of goggles" 1/10/2011

  • Name: 2009 Anon Realm Emblem Snowboard Goggles
  • Pros:  Stylish, Comfortable, Well Built

Experience:   Anon got it right with the Realms. They are very comfortable and super stylish. The emblem on the goggles give it that extra stylish kick. The realms have many different interchangable lens replacements that allows you to pick and chose based on your needs as well as for your gear.
"Cozy and comfortable" 1/10/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Ion
  • Pros:  Comfortable, mid flex to Stiff,
  • Cons:  Dirties easily,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  stiff
  • Shoe Size:  9
  • Boot Size:  10

Experience:   I have been using a pair of Burton SLX for 2 seasons and recently purchased a pair of Ions. In comparison, the SLX are much more stiff but in relative to other boots, the Ions are fairly stiff but are also very comfortable. I just started using them and they pinch a bit in the middle part of the feet but I think after a few more days on the slopes, they will break in much better. Overall, I'm very happy with them but the whites do get dirty easily.
"Good bag for it's purpose" 1/10/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Board Sack Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  Well Padded, Goggles pocket, Decent for travel

Experience:   This is a decent board for traveling. It fits a board with bindings and boots pretty well with an outer pocket for goggles. Might want to consider getting the wheelie for convenience as the bag can get really heavy with gear in it.
"Cool tool but bits rust " 1/7/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine Torque Driver Snowboard Tool
  • Pros:  Small, Compact, Handy
  • Cons:  Bits will rust if you don't dry them,

Experience:   I had one of these and the bits got rusty after a few uses. The bits got wet while I was tuning my board on the slopes and after storing them in the handle, they got rusty. It happened to my friend's also. If you buy this one, remember to dry the bits if they get wet.
"A must have" 1/7/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Cool Tool
  • Pros:  Compact, Light weight, Easy to carry

Experience:   A pocket screw driver is a handy tool to have on the slopes. It's helped me out numerous times and fits well in any jacket pocket. I've owned other screwdrivers and I think this is definitely one of the best. Don't bother with the type that stores the bits at the the handle of the screwdriver. If the bits get wet and you store it in the cap, they rust up fast.
"If you love it, lock it" 1/7/2011

  • Name: 2011 Dakine Micro Lock
  • Pros:  Compact, Small, Effective

Experience:   It might not seem like much but it defintely gives you peace of mind knowing your gear is locked up. I've been able to lock 3 boards on a rack with this.
"Pleasantly Surprised" 1/6/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Cartel 2009
  • Pros:  Responsive, Forgiving, Solid
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   For the first time, I rode a pair of Burton Cartels and I must say I'm very surprised at how stable and responsive they feel. They are a great pair of mid to high end bindings that are about mid flex and definitely fun to ride on. Definitely not as stiff as the Burton C60 or CO2 but very solid and playful pair of bindings.
"Crew vs Reverse Crew" 1/6/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Reverse Crew Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Responsive, Stable even at high speeds, Sexy graphics

Experience:   I have a Reverse Crew and my buddy bought the Crew and I was able to test ride both today and I gotta say both are excellent boards. If you can afford both. Buy both. If you're only able to buy 1, then you'll have to make a very difficult decision. Sierra Reverse Crew: First off, the Reverse Crew is fast! (might be the wax I just put on) but the board wants to take off. What surprised me was that it rides extremely smooth even at high speeds. The Reverse Crew is much softer making it a very playful board, making tail presses like butter. Compared to the Crew, the Reverse Crew seems to be more responsive making it easier to carve. It does go over bumps with some pop and does want to launch you up a bit but I love that about this board. Sierra Crew: The Crew is a very awesome board as well. Compared to the Reverse Crew, the Crew is a much stiffer board. It's definitely not the stiffest board I've ridden but it feels very sturdy and extremely stable at high speeds. In choppy conditions, you will feel a lot less of the crusty granular snow. I felt very confident riding this board at high speeds and highly recommend it as well. To put this in another light, the Reverse Crew is like a turbo charged V4 while the Crew is like a V6.

  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  S

Experience:   I'm 5'6 and i fit a small just fine. the pant legs are a bit long so they tend to drag a bit. it only took about 3 days out on the slopes when i noticed the pant legs began to tear. after about 5 days, i noticed the coloring in the knees began to fade.
