Pros: Comfortable, Great Lenses, Helmet compatable
Purchased a set of crowbars with hi-vis lens for low light days. These goggles fit well and look great. The oakley lenses are fantastic and the hi-vis works great for flat light days.
These have a tendancy to fog a little more than my Wisdom's (even when being extremely careful), but that has more to do with the my face than the goggles.
These goggles have worked well both with my old Giro G10 and my new Smith Vantage helmet.
I would reccomend these to anyone looking for a dependable, good looking set of goggles.
Great goggle, and excellent Oakley lenses!
Did not like that the standard strap was not compatable with helmets, and needed to purchase a special helmet strap.
Comfortable and didnt have many problems with fogging. Lense swapping was easy enough, although replacement oakley lenses are expensive.
Overall a great goggle for the 3 years I used it as my primary goggle. It has been replaced by a set of Smith I/O which i highly reccomend.
Pros: Insulated Water Sleeve, Dual Board Carry, Comfortable
Cons: None so far,
Great riding pack, especially for backcountry. Dual board carry is improvement over 2010 which only had horizontal, suits everyone. Insulated sleeve for camelback is nice, but still freezes, stuff a couple toasty toes in there and it will help out a lot!.
Fully recommend this bag as a serious riding pack. Not a great all purpose pack, but does what it was designed for well.
Simple Bag. Know what you are buying, if you are looking for a simple gear bag to transport to/from the hill and for storage, its perfect. If you plan on doing any travelling other than by car (plane, bus, etc) then this is not the bag you want.
Pros: Zippered Jacket/Pant interface, Does everything it needs to!, 80's Pinups on the inside!
Cons: Corduroy fills up with snow!, Not the best waterproof/breathability,
Jacket Fit: Just right
My Size: M
Fits Like: M
Description: Long Fit
Great coat for the money. It fits long, and does a good job of keeping the snow out. Enough pockets for all your shenanigans.
Not your standard styling, so have a good look before you buy it. I have the Resin colour, it is a nice deep green corduroy texture with a worn leather(esque) trim.
Great coat for resort days, but I definitely prefer my more technical shells for almost anything but resort days.
Its hard to argue with a coat with women on the liner!
First snowboard helmet owned. Wore this helmet for 3 seasons and only replaced it for aesthetics.
I have worn this helmet on days where it was -35 degrees C and never had to wear anything underneath it. Conversely, I have worn this on very warm days and just opened the vents, pulled the earflaps out and been completely comfortable as well.
The helmet is light, and you quickly forget it is even there. I had the audio earpads in mine and they never quit, and were comfortable.
My only complaint is that it is not a hard shell, so any impact or even tossing it around with your gear can put indents in the outer layer. That being said... i wouldnt give up the weight for it to be hard shell.
This is a great helmet, and if the fit is right you will never have a complaint!
Pros: Unrestricted Field of View, 2 Lenses, Goggle/Helmet Interface
To date, I have owned: Smith I/O, Oakley Crowbar, Oakley Wisdom, Oakley A-Frame and the Smith I/O are the best so far.
These goggles look awesome, and fit (me) very well. The I/O offer a huge field of view and I never notice the frame blocking anything.
The goggles come with 2 lenses - 1 for flat light, and 1 for bright days which is a huge bonus, and changing lenses is quick and super easy.
I bought a Smith Vantage helmet at the same time, and the goggle to helmet interface is excellent with Smith helmets, keeping the goggles well vented.
Of the goggles I have owned, I have had the least trouble with these fogging.
Pros: Splits in two if the luggage police get ya, Huge, Durable, easy to spot on a carousel
Cons: Technically too large to be 1 piece on some flight, Divider material - hesitant to split an check it,
Great bag, good quality, easy to pick off a carousel. Only downfall is that on some flights, at least in Canada it is too large (just barely) to be a single piece of checked luggage. You either have to split it in two, or pay oversize fees. The material on the inside of the bag that would be exposed when broken into two pieces doesnt seem like it would hold up to too many flights as being a two piece bag.
All in all a great bag, as long as the luggage cops don't catch you!
Cons: Carry Doesnt work super well unless packed full,
Excellent day to day bag that can pull double duty if required.
Board carry can be sloppy unless the bag is packed full.
If you want a backcountry bag, get something like the Heli. Great all-round bag though.
This bag has protected my gear on over 20 flights and has yet to let me down. It has enough room for all my riding gear when I travel and none of my boards have been damaged while travelling in this bag.
Its not a terribly exciting bag, but it works!
Pros: Great float in powder, Performs well on groomers,
Cons: Plain Looking (Some years better than others),
If you want a powder board that won't let you down on the groomed and the chop look no further!
The Malolo is a great feeling board with lots of float in the powder and stability at speed on the groomers.
This board is entering its third season, it sees more days than any of my other boards.
Oldest set of bindings in my quiver, and still as comfortable and responsive as new. Good things to say about Burton warranty as well, I clipped a rock with my highback and snapped off the fake gold metal lean lock Tab. Sent back to burton and came back with a new tab good as new.
Overall very happy with these bindings and the Burton support.
Rode these on one of my boards for a season.... fortuneately I got them for free.
I enjoyed the easy in/out of these bindings but found build quality to be lacking in alot of the cheap plastics used. Some of this has been addressed in newer bindings. They began letting me down as my riding progressed.
One thing i could never get over was the lack of stability. If you are looking for a stiffer freeride/all mountain binding that will give you good support, do not look to Flows! The design is good and forgiving for more freestyle all mountain riding, but if you want to seriously lean into it and ride hard and fast the flow's will let you down and make you work way too hard.
Know what you are buying and your riding style, if possible try before you buy.
My Ruler's were packing out and i needed a stiff boot for freeride.....after trying on dozens of boots these were it!
These boots are ski-boot stiff allowing you to lean hard in some of the best lines. Not the greatest all-mountain boots due to stiffness, but nothing beats them in the steep and technical!
First boot, excellent starter boot and served me well through progression. Subsequently replaced by a much stiffer boot for freeride. Lasted a solid 80+ days of torture. I would buy again for medium flex boot for sure.
