"Great Park Board, Ok for groomers" 12/2/2008
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Un Inc
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Strong edgehold, Popular on mountain, Soft, Well known brand

Experience:   Pros: -Soft and bendy with lots of pop. -Easy to ride switch for those landings -Can handle groomers with a good edge hold -Great for butters -Sweet graphics, gets tons of compliments Cons: -Rear leg burn is what you'll get if you ride in pow -More rear leg burn if you freeride it -Top sheet scratches :( -Tied to ICS bindings which are more $$$ than others Summary: If you like goofing around on the mountain and hitting the park this board is for you. You can take this to the backcountry and pow, but be ready to handle that rear leg burn as your buddies w/ the free ride boards will probably leave you in the dust. Overall this is an intermediate board that can blast the park, and can do marginally well for groomers. Great to add to your quiver if you're looking for a soft board.
"Interesting jacket" 3/22/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Idiom Continuum 2.5L Snowboard Jacket
  • Pros:  Price @ 70% off, Burton's W48 warranty ,
  • Cons:  Not enough pockets, Not worth full price, A bit thin for this type of jacket
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  I'm 6'1 200lbs with broad shoulders. The length is fine but it seems a bit baggy around the torso.

Experience:   I currently own a Cloudveil goretex RPK jacket that's bulletproof but saw this and thought it would be a bargain buy. I was a little underwhelmed by this jacket when I unpacked it from the box. Its a bit thin and there aren't many features to this jacket @ a $500 retail price. You can actually get a 2/3 ply goretex jacket that's got way more features from competitors but at 70% off its not a terrible deal. The fit is a bit interesting, I'm a built 6'1 @ 200lbs and got the XL according to the sizing that was spec'ed out in the Sierra description and their test model. The length is fine and you can definitely layer underneath it. However, I'm surprised on how baggy this is around my torso and my arms given my build. One thing I'm a little disappointed is that there is no pow skirt or a sinch around the torso area to tighten it up (just at the bottom of the jacket). The hood is attached and cannot be removed. Overall, I still haven't used this on the slopes and this is my initial impression. I have my doubts as compared to my Cloudveil, will see how it performs. I would say if you're in dire need of a jacket, this will suffice ONLY at 70% off.
"Comfortable all purpose bindings" 10/3/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Rome 390 Boss Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Excellent straps, Adjustability, Fit and finish
  • Cons:  Too much adjustability,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I rode the 2011 L/XL Boss and wear the 2008 Burton Hail boots size 12. Its a very tight squeeze for my boots, and you'll want to look into a smaller footprint if possible. As compared to my Union Forces, the straps on the Boss are a step up in comfort. The Ankle strap is more plush, and the toe cap really bites down and you never have to worry about it slipping. You can adjust everything on this binding which makes it a pro and a con. I did however enjoy the torsional flex of the highback better on my Forces over the Boss. Overall, I highly recommend the Boss for an all purpose binding and the cant beds are a great addition. My only concern is the width of the binding with the boot I had. Once/If my Forces die, I'll be looking into picking up these bindings (with smaller profile boots)!

"Does the job" 5/9/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Dakine Mega Blaster Snowboard Tool
  • Pros:  Many different screw heads, Rachet functionality, Easy to use leverage
  • Cons:  Heavy, Not ergonomic with some of the functions,

Experience:   I'm comparing this to burton's bullet tool. They rate about the same although the Dakine tool is significantly heavier, it does have more screw heads. No need to worry if you lose one or three screw heads, there's a ton. There is a twist mechanism that opens up the tool that stores the screw heads and that doesn't really work well with the twisting mechanism of the rachet. When you twist to tighten or loosen using the rachet, sometimes your palm will accidently open up the tool containing the screw heads and they may fall out. Worth it at the price if you don't have a tool.
"Bombproof." 3/24/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 686 Smarty Index
  • Pros:  15k waterproof, Durability, Features and pockets
  • Cons:  Heavy,
  • Pant Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Looked huge and heavy but they do fit very well. I may need a belt though.

Experience:   I've owned a pair of Burton AK 2L Stagger pants that were goretex and these 686's CRUSH the Burton pants. This guy is durable and it looks like it can take a beating while looking fantastic. Super happy with the fit and finish of these pants and would recommend them to anyone who boards in cold weather.
"all mountain slayer" 6/30/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Lib Tech Travis Rice C2 BTX
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Carving,Groomers,Jumps
  • Pros:  Durable, lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Stable at high speeds, Popular model, Strong edgehold, Popular on mountain, Stiff

Experience:   Picked up the board based on recommendations on the 08 MTX Trice and I haven't regretted the decision since ripping the mountain down in NZ. The board is definitely a different ride from your typical cambered board being the new C2 BTX. It's not better, its different. The board is fast and stable, durable, holds a great edge on icy conditions, and can land those jumps you pull off. Check out my review: http://www.sierrasnowboard.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=27149
"Good helmet, goggle strap is weak." 1/14/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 RED Hi-Fi Audex Audio
  • Pros:  Comfy and snug, warm (sometimes gets too hot if it's a warmer day), good head coverage, you can plug in your mp3 player w/ volume controls on the manufactures cord
  • Cons:  The goggle strap is pretty weak. There isn't any rivets or tracks on the helmet to hold your goggles in place other than the goggle strap in the back.

Experience:   Overall a good helmet but the fact that the helmet's goggle strap isn't the best. If your goggle straps have a sticky strip then that should help keeping them in place.
"Sweet bindings" 10/30/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton EST Un Inc
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Good construction quality, Lightweight, Comfortable, Well known brand, Easy installation
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   Just remember to tighten them real tight. These are based of Burton Triad Bindings. The tiedye color on the cantbeds will fade into each other when the bindings get wet.
"Nice midlayer pants" 10/30/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Midweight Thermal Pants
  • Pros:  Sturdy Construction and they keep you warm and it's a really good price at 1/2 off. I would buy again.

Experience:  
"Good luggage, it's huge!" 9/10/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Wheelie Double Deck Luggage Bag
  • Pros:  -Huge size (I used this to move down to New Zealand) -Great wheels, smooth action -Luggage can be broken down into two pieces so that you can meet weight requirements if going through airport -Lifetime warranty on defects
  • Cons:  -It's huge

Experience:   Great piece of luggage to add to your collection if you don't have a large piece. It can carry 2 weeks worth of clothes easy.
