"Bomber!" 1/17/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton T6 Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Off Trail,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Great edge hold., Super light., Ultra soft ride.
  • Cons:  Smooth Ride pads. (typical),

Experience:   Being the most dough I've spent on a board, I had huge expectations for this bad mother. I could immediately tell after the first run, that every one was met. And then some! I mean what can I say that hasn't already been said? The T6 is super fast, smooth, responsive, light, poppy, and most of all fun! I've finally found a board that will take my riding to the next level. I've ridden it on everything from icy east-coast moguls, to deep powdery diamonds and everything in between, and so far this board is worth every penny! Landing big air on this baby feels like you have a pillow strapped to your feet. It's not choppy at all, and some call it too stiff but I disagree. The Smooth Ride pads did sort of start to peel off on me but I just glued them back on without another problem. I would be hard pressed to find a replacement for this board in my quiver, and I honestly don't think I need one.
"Stiff Stuff!!!" 9/7/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2013 Burton Ion Snowboard Boots
  • Pros:  Warm , Tons of support, Waterproof
  • Cons:  Too stiff at first, Very expensive, Lacking comfort vs. price
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  stiff
  • Shoe Size:  8
  • Boot Size:  8

Experience:   Let me start off by saying that I love these boots now, but it took a while for me to warm up to them. I rode with a pair of Burton Motos for years, and having progressed in my skill I felt it was time for an upgrade. I tried a pair on at a local Burton outlet for sizing, and then ordered them online. On my first day wearing them they seemed way too stiff. I was used to boots being a little stiffer than I like at first, but the best way to break them in is to go out and ride with them. Half way through the day, and these had me wishing I had brought my Motos. After multiple days out in them, and I was second guessing my purchase. Standing or walking was fine, but riding was hell! I don't have any idea what happened, but I wore my Motos for the next couple of trips and just decided to try the Ions one more time before I sold them. Suddenly they were the most comfortable boots ever. Maybe all of the pack out finally set in? I'm not sure, but I will say that I've ridden in sub-zero temps, rain, and blizzard-like conditions and my feet stayed warm, dry, and comfortable all day. The support in these boots go perfectly with my Burton Triads and my Burton T6. Now when I'm really hauling butt down the mountain I feel like my whole setup is substantial enough to keep me in line. If anyone decides to buy these, don't judge them until they're really broken in. I almost did, and trust me I'm glad my stubbornness got the better of me this time.
"High And Dry" 1/4/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton AK 2L Stagger Snowboard Jacket Men's
  • Pros:  Gore Tex!, Plenty of pockets., Pow gator in the sleeve.
  • Cons:  No more LinkZip., A little pricey.,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Slightly loose.

Experience:   I wore this jacket out riding on a rainy, soupy day and it kept me warm and dry the whole time. I mainly focus on hitting glades, moguls, and black trails. The feel is like that of a regular jacket, not all stiff and crunchy like some Gore Tex products. The price is kind of high but so worth it. Spend the extra money, you won't be sorry.
"Giant bag, Tiny price." 7/31/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Riders Duffel Bag
  • Pros:  What can I say, this thing is enormous! I got mine in today and immediately put two pairs of boots, two helmets, three pairs of goggles, two pairs of gloves, an iron, five bars of wax, three scrapers, two board locks, a bullet tool, and I still have room to spare. This bag rips!
  • Cons:  Might be hard to carry when full with a board bag, but it's better than carrying two boot bags full of crap.

Experience:   The little pocket on the strap is a perfect spot for your sticky, smelly "lift accessories".
"Giant killer!" 7/6/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Cartel 2009
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Durable, Good construction quality, Lightweight, Comfortable, Well known brand, Popular model, Easy installation
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   I gotta say, I swore by Cartels until my buddy had me try out his Triads. I then realized how much stiffer the Cartels are. Don't get me wrong, I still love the Cartels but now I feel like the Triad is the more comfy of the two. Nothing negative to say about these bindings though.
"More kushin for tha pushin ; )" 7/6/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Triad
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Durable, Good construction quality, Lightweight, Comfortable, Well known brand, Popular model, Easy installation
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   Tried out a friend's pair last season and decided I had to get a pair. I had read a few reviews comparing these to Cartels, and in my personal opinion the response is comparable but the Triads are way more comfy!
"Get a real wax job." 3/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Rub Down Wax
  • Pros:  Not many. Quick, got me through the day.
  • Cons:  Ride is terrible, does not last at all.

Experience:   I unfortunately bought this at a resort instead of paying $15 for just a wax job. Almost felt like I should have just paid the $15 when my day was done. I even used a real cork on this crap and my base was sluggish all day, and dry after I was done. When I got home, I threw it away.
"Park your butt." 3/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 RED Impact Short Womens
  • Pros:  Helped my wife feel comfortable enough to try some park features finally.
  • Cons:  She says they feel like they stick out a lot when she's walking around, although I really can't tell she's got any on at all.

Experience:   After seeing how long it took me to sit properly after nailing my tailbone on a rail, there was no way I was going to get my wife into the park without a pair. So I got them for her, and for the most part she likes them.
"Do the trick." 3/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 RED Impact Short
  • Pros:  They'll protect you from a fractured, or broken tail bone. They'll keep your hip bones from taking a beating also.
  • Cons:  A little cumbersome under your layers.

Experience:   I decided to try thes out after hitting my arse on a rail so hard I had to sit out the rest of the day. I haven't actually fallen that hard when I'm wearing the shorts, but it makes you feel a bit more confident.
"Decent!" 3/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Space Sack Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  The price! I'd be kidding if I said anything else. Also, it's nice to have a kick-around bag for the local runs.
  • Cons:  Not extremely protective. I wouldn't exactly use it for plane trips or anything, but for this price, at least it's something to keep your seats from getting cut up by your edges.

Experience:   It's a little overpriced in regular shops for what you get. At the deal Sierra's putting them out at, who's complaining?!
"Dry and toasty!" 3/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Gore Tex Womens
  • Pros:  Super warm, super dry, and super comfy. According to my wife.
  • Cons:  You'll never want to take them off.

Experience:   I just got these for my wife and she's in love with them! She had some Columbia gloves before that did nothing to keep her hands dry. She even put a hand warmer in the top pocket when it got really cold, and she could not stop talking about how great they were.
"Clean and classy" 3/11/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Corp Horizontal Short Sleeve
  • Pros:  Very non-flashy. I personally don't like "look at me" clothes. Soft, and my medium doesn't seem like it shrank at all after being washed.
  • Cons:  I'm gonna have to buy more because I'm gonna wear this one out quick!

Experience:   The black is so smooth looking. I'm gonna want to wear it every day.
"Tight!" 2/20/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Binding Hardware
  • Pros:  They hold your bindings down...........uh..........that's all I got to say......about that.
  • Cons:  Once screwed down, they're pretty tough to loosen up again, although that should probably be in the pros section huh? Oh well.

Experience:   I usually keep my shizzle pretty well tightened all the time, but it's good to have extras of everything just in case a friend might need some, or someone at the mountain, if you're feeling charitable.
"Smooth." 2/20/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Fluoro Comp Wax - All Temp
  • Pros:  Really good all temp wax. Something you should have in your backpack on those days when you're not sure what the temp will be on the mountain.
  • Cons:  Not very economic (size vs. price).

Experience:   Listen, it's wax. If you melt it on, scrape it off, and structure it, it gets the job done.
"Keeps ya sharp!" 2/20/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Edge Tuner Tool
  • Pros:  Good for keeping those edges nice and sharp. Fairly simple and straight-forward to use.
  • Cons:  You'll end up having all of your friends asking you to tune their stuff all the time. You can't change the angle.

Experience:   The file is removable to handle those delicate finishing touches.
"Triple threat." 2/20/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Tri Scraper Tool
  • Pros:  Lots of edges to scrape with. Has an awesome notch to hit your edges with.
  • Cons:  Mine dulled down after a few uses, but what scraper doesn't?

Experience:   Quit a bit bigger than you'd think. Two nice rounded tips so you don't gouge your base. When it gets dull, hit it with a file and sharpen that baby up!
"Very consistent." 2/20/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Adjustable Tuning Iron 110v
  • Pros:  Compact, versatile, and very consistent with temps.
  • Cons:  None.

Experience:   I love how this iron holds the same temperature while I'm waxing. Never have to worry about burning wax or my base. Some people have written about hot/cold spots on their irons but I haven't noticed anything like that on mine. Buy it, it's worth it!
"Aye Poppy!" 2/20/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Twin
  • Use:  Boxes,Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Strong edgehold, Great value, Popular on mountain, Well known brand

Experience:   This board is great. Nice pop, great edge hold and the graphics aren't too over-the-top. Tons of fun in the park and on groomers.
"It Works!" 2/20/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Spike
  • Pros:  Super grippy, can be left as-is, cut into strips or even individual spikes and it still holds.
  • Cons:  None.

Experience:   It's great that it comes in clear so you don't cover your topsheet graphic. I personally use only the two outermost strips for my heel and toe on every board I own.
"Extra....Extra!" 1/7/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2005 Burton TNT Bomber Boot Laces
  • Pros:  Super smooth and stretchy for easy lacin'. Great price for a great product.

Experience:   Just like Geology Rocks, I always carry a few extra pairs, and am thankful that I do cuz my laces broke on me on a mountain and they were charging $20 for a stupid pair of laces! Luckily I was a boyscout and learned to be prepared.
"Crystal clear!" 1/7/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Oakley A frame
  • Pros:  I've owned several different pairs of goggles (Smith, Dragon, Spy etc.) and these are the only ones that don't distort my vision. The optical clarity is second to none. I've even face-planted on a rail and busted my nose, but the goggles were fine.
  • Cons:  They don't fit everybody.

Experience:   I love that you can buy one pair of goggles and interchange lenses. Much cheaper than buying new goggles for every situation.
"Tons o room!" 1/7/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Boothaus Medium Duffel Bag
  • Pros:  This bag has ample room for two pairs of boots plus a few extra goodies, and that's just the main compartment. The extra pockets are great for more socks, gloves or whatever you might need.
  • Cons:  None so far.

Experience:  
"Don't break your wrists, or the bank." 12/28/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 RED Impact Wrist Guard
  • Pros:  Very breathable for when you're ridin real hard. Easily hides under your gloves.
  • Cons:  When you take off your gloves the "tough-guys" might make snide remarks. Oh well, let them break something.

Experience:   Let's face it, nobody's perfect. We all fall from time to time, and the bigger you go the harder you fall. Don't let a bad landing ruin your season, or even the rest of the year for that matter.
"No holes in your pants!" 12/27/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Bullet Tool
  • Pros:  Very compact, and has every bit you need. The ratchet is a nice feature to have, even when you have gloves on. Plus, the bits are locked inside the unit when not in use, so no lost bits and no stabbed thighs if you take a digger.
  • Cons:  None.

Experience:  
"Mighty Long" 12/27/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Burton Board Lock
  • Pros:  The cable is long enough to protect three boards at a time! I personally only lock up my board long enough to grab a beer, or hit the toilet. I sincerely doubt anyone would have the time, or the balls to try and break a lock when they could swipe one that has no lock at all.
  • Cons:  Pretty big and cumbersome.

Experience:   No matter how it looks, it does it's job. I'd rather have a big ugly lock on my board than no board at all. Be smart, buy one now!
"Nice n compact." 12/27/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton AK 15L
  • Pros:  When you're out and you only need the essentials, it's nice to have a smaller bag to carry just a few things in. Also, the hydration bladder is sweet to have when you're out hiking in no-man's land and there's no resort around for drinks.
  • Cons:  I'd like it to have more external pockets, but then I could just go and buy another bag.

Experience:  
"Ample Room" 12/27/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Board Sack
  • Pros:  Tons of room for either two boards without bindings, or leave your bindings on and throw your boots in as well. The extra handles are great for carrying your board in all situations.

Experience:  
"Worth way more!" 12/8/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Sierra Crew
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Powder,Rails
  • Pros:  Durable, lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Stable at high speeds, Strong edgehold, Great value, Stiff

Experience:   I won this snowboard for free, so I can't beat the price! Gotta say though, this thing is worth so much more than it's price. I would compare the Sierra Crew to boards to brands that are twice the price, and the graphics are the best. (Simple and not flashy) I love it! Thanks Sierra Snowboard!!!
"warm n dry" 9/26/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Gore Tex Under
  • Pros:  These gloves are super comfy, warm and have no problem keepin' your hands dry. Plus the vent pockets are the perfect size for stashin' your lift accessories.
  • Cons:  None.

Experience:   Mine came with these inner glove liners that really aren't needed because these do everything.
"Great deal!!!" 9/26/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 RED Hi-Fi Audex Subwoofer
  • Pros:  These headphones not only sound awesome, but they keep your ears warm on those brutally cold days. Plus, when the headphones already go for $60-$70, you can't beat the price.
  • Cons:  "Noooo"!! "They're all gonna laugh at you!"

Experience:   For anyone who doesn't know, the headphones are removable from the helmet, so when your iPod dies and your head is getting hot, just pop 'em out and keep ridin.
