"Do it all machine" 4/25/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Sierra Reverse Crew Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Powder,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Lots of pop, Still pretty playful, Presses and butters well
  • Cons:  Base dried out quickly,

Experience:   I purchased this board near the end of this last season, and I got to ride in in mainly spring conditions. I have to say I was very impressed. I'm 140lbs and I rode the 155. This is a great all-mountain stick as it performs well at speed, has a good deal of pop, but still has the playful feel of a reverse camber board. I didn't have a chance to ride on too much ice, so I can't really comment on the edge hold. The board is also fairly damp and it plowed through choppy conditions wonderfully. In terms of speed, it was okay, but that might have simply been the slushy conditions. Also, this might be related, but the base seemed to dry out fairly quickly.
"Warm, colorful, but lacking in features" 4/19/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Bonfire Arc
  • Pros:  Warm, Very bright colored, Comfy
  • Cons:  Not full-featured, Non-detachable hood, Waterproofing is okay
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  S
  • Fits Like:  S
  • Description:  A slightly baggier fit

Experience:   I've had a few Bonfire outerwear pieces, and I have to say, most of the stuff I've own hasn't been the most technical or full-featured outerwear available. The Arc doesn't disappoint in this fashion. It's a simple jacket that's very warm, very comfy, and fits me very well (which is the main reason I like Bonfire). It doesn't have a huge number of pockets, and the hood doesn't detach which is slightly annoying to me. The shell material is really soft and feels nice, however, despite it's 15K rating it's not the most waterproof thing out there. This jacket is good for cold, dry days. The fit works very well for me. I don't like super baggy clothes, but a little looser than normal streetwear. This jacket (and Bonfire in general) accomplishes that wonderfully. A good deal when I purchased it for $60, so if you want a simple warm jacket, this could be it.
"Amazingly versatile" 2/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Capita Sierrascope FK
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Park,Powder,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  So easy to press, Amazingly playful, Holds its own on the rest of the mountain
  • Cons:  Edgehold on icier conditions,

Experience:   I was a reverse-camber/rocker virgin until riding the Sierrascope, so take this review with that in mind, but this board is awesome. The Sierrascope is amazingly playful and fun. It was so easy to do presses and butters with this thing and it was very catch-free and forgiving. I know some people don't like how rocker boards pop, but I found that it had a good amount of pop and I really dig the feel of it. Because of the carbon x between the feet, it really has enough stiffness to perform well all over the mountain. I did find edgehold to be a little bit lacking when going on some icier conditions, but that's to be expected with any board, reverse-camber boards in particular. I'm a flat-kick convert.
"Nice Big Goggles" 5/27/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Von Zipper Feenom
  • Pros:  The Von Zipper Feenoms are one big pair of goggles. They've got a ton of peripheral vision and are quite comfy. They haven't fogged on me and keep my face fairly warm. The extra lens they came with is nice as well. I definitely like the option of buying additional lenses for various conditions. Also, I wear glasses, and although these aren't OTG goggles per se, they work very well over my glasses and are quite easy to slip on and off.
  • Cons:  So the biggest issue for me with these goggles is the nose gap I have. I know other people with fairly low nose bridges haven't had problems with them, but I still have a small gap when I'm wearing them properly. I can sag the goggles down a bit to close the nose gap, but then they're not quite as comfy. This is a small issue, but may be important for some people. Also, my helmet is fairly large, and when getting the goggle strap over the back of the helmet and loosening it completely, it's still just a little snug. Not uncomfortable, but snug.

Experience:   I got the smoke green chrome lenses and they're good for cloudy/overcast days, but not quite as good for very sunny days. I was squinting a little when I wore them in really bright spring conditions. Something to keep in mind when choosing lens colors.
"Very Big OTG Goggles" 3/20/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Smith Knowledge OTG
  • Pros:  I wear glasses so as advertised, these goggles fit well over glasses. They have decent ventilation (at the top and bottom) so in most cases they don't fog up. They have fairly good peripheral vision, but not as good as other goggles with spherical lenses. These goggles also fit a fairly large face and work well with my helmet (Smith Clutch). I didn't get any nose gap from these goggles despite the size and my low nose bridge.
  • Cons:  The quality of these goggles is mediocre. After a year, the foam is ripping a little and starting to fall apart. While the ventilation is good, these goggles have still fogged up once or twice on very very cold days. These goggles are enormous and can be a little bit bulky. There are definitely smaller OTG goggles out there.

Experience:   So one thing I found happening is that while the goggles won't fog up too much, my glasses underneath are very susceptible to fogging. I found I had to put antifog material on my glasses to allow myself to see properly. These goggles are fine for their price, but if you're willing to spend a bit more, I would upgrade to something a bit nicer.
"Great Boot" 3/15/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Ruler
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Easy lacing, Durable, Good quality, Warm, Easy in & out, Well known brand, Popular model
  • Fit:  average

Experience:   I absolutely love this boot. It's one of the stiffer Burton boots and I largely ride all-mountain with less freestyle so these are perfect for me. It's very comfortable, very warm, and well-made all around. I believe the 09 model of the Burton boots are made so that the outside dimensions are one size smaller (without affecting the inside dimensions) than the last years models. This makes the boots fairly compact and light, easy to walk in, and easy to fit into most bindings. I've found the speedzone lacing (with upper and lower zones) to be very fast and extremely easy although not quite as customizable in terms of different zonal tightening as traditional laces. The Imprint 2 liner is also well made and has molded to my feet well after about 2 days on the snow with fairly minimal packing after about 10 days on the snow. I bought a 1/2 size smaller than I normally wear to get the correct fit, but take this with a grain of salt since everyone's feet are different. Definitely try out these boots, but personally I've been very happy with them.
"Nice Park Board" 3/14/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Flow The Team
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Easy to carve, poppy, Great value, Soft
  • Cons:  Top sheet scratches

Experience:   I jumped on this board when it was on sale for the $99 cyber monday sale, so most of my opinions are based on this reference frame. I've never riden flow boards before and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The board is fairly flexy which makes it great for jibs, but because of the directional twin shape/flex, it's got a really good amount of pop for going off those kickers. The Team excels at the park, but it still does fairly well over the rest of the mountain, although I did encounter a bit of chatter at high speeds. It's fairly easy to carve with as well. Something on this board I hadn't encountered before was the structurn (dimpled) base. It was advertised to help in slushy conditions to prevent the suction effect of watery snow. I have now thoroughly ridden it in slushy conditions and I'm not convinced it significantly improves speed over normal structured bases. It's also a bit of a hassle to wax with all those little dimples in the base. Finally as everyone else has said, the topsheet chips and dents extremely easily. After the first day of riding, the edges of my topsheet were quite dented and scraped even though I don't remember any hard bumps into other people's skis/boards.
"Great Compact Lock" 2/15/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Dakine Micro Lock
  • Pros:  This lock is very small and very lightweight. I keep it in the shoulder pocket of my jacket while I'm riding, and I don't notice it at all. The cable retracts completely and is about 2 to 3 feet in length when extended so it is generally long enough to lock your board via the binding to any rack. The combination wheels are easy to use, although I have to take off my gloves to use them. Although the body of the lock is plastic, it feels very sturdy and secure.
  • Cons:  There is only one very small complaint I have about this lock (which happened to me on the mountain the other day). The way you set the combination to your own number is by pushing the the cable head further into where it usually retracts until it clicks. Then you can turn the numbers to the combination you desire. However, if this lock is in your pocket and gets jostled hard, the cable head may accidentally go into the "set" position and it may accidentally switch the combination on your lock without your knowledge. Luckily for me, the combination was only one digit off, so I managed to figure it out (after I had locked my board to the rack).

Experience:   Some people may complain that the cable is too thin or that the body of the lock is made of plastic and may be easier to break/cut than other locks. Most snowboard thefts are crimes of opportunity where the thieves steal boards which are easily accessible. Locks are simply deterrents and I believe any size lock will do (besides, a slightly thicker cable won't deter someone who really wants to cut the lock and steal your board). The reason I rated this lock highly is because of its ease of use and tiny form factor.
"Decent beanie" 2/14/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Analog Debate
  • Pros:  I actually like the styling of the beanie and think it looks cool. It also seems well made.
  • Cons:  Tendafoot is right, the hat is pretty big (and I already have a big head). If I pull it all the way down, it'll cover my eyes. It's also not the warmest thing ever.

Experience:   I'm not sure if it's actually reversible since there's a tag on the inside.
"Good Cargo" 2/14/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Cargo
  • Pros:  Breathable, Durable, Warm, Waterproof
  • Description:  WEATHER: Spring Day, Blue Bird Powder Day, Cloudy and Cold, LEG: Relaxed, WAIST: Feels true to size, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

Experience:   These pants are very nice. They're pretty loose fitting, but not overly baggy and there's two cargo pockets, two side pockets, two back pockets, and thigh vents. The inside has a mesh lining, and the side pockets are fleecy so they keep your hands warm if you're waiting outside. The shell material is pretty waterproof (not as good as gortex), but if you're sitting in slushy snow for most of the day (or if it's raining), a little bit of water might get through. Otherwise, it'll keep you really dry on days when it's not extremely wet. There's even a little slit in one of the pockets to let your headphone cable come out from the layer below. One word of warning: I usually wear size 32 street pants, and I purchased these pants in medium because the listed size range was 32-34, but I would say the waist is much larger than expected. If you're on the border between two sizes, get the smaller size.
"Excellent Wax Iron" 2/13/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Adjustable Tuning Iron 110v
  • Pros:  It has an temperature adjustment for fine tuning if your wax has particular temperature it needs to go on. It's also got two little feet so you can stand it upright when you're not actively waxing. The cord is also long to allow for good maneuverability.
  • Cons:  The price is a little bit high compared to a cheap clothes iron, but this is made for waxing boards so you get what you pay for (edges of iron are tapered, and no holes in iron). Also, although I said the long cord is a benefit, it's also a little dangerous if you're not careful and trip over it (like I did).

Experience:   You can set the temperature anywhere from around 120F to almost 300F which is very nice. I found the lower temperatures were all I needed with my all temp wax.
"Cheap Boot" 2/13/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Moto
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Easy lacing, Warm, Breathable, Easy in & out, Well known brand, Popular model
  • Cons:  Non adjustable, Low quality
  • Fit:  soft

Experience:   The Burton Moto is an entry level boot designed for the beginning rider. The first thing I should say about these boots is that they pack out fairly quickly; after about 4 days on the slopes, they were about a half size larger. By 7 days on the slopes, I was getting a bit of heel lift. The speedzone lacing is fast, but since this boot uses the speedzone express where there's only one pull cord, I found it somewhat difficult to adequately tighten the lower zone independently from the upper zone. I also found I had to tighten these boots after every few runs because the cord catch would loosen. These boots are very flexible which is good for a beginner. Unlike other reviewers, I found these boots very comfortable despite the relatively lower quality construction of the boot. If you're a beginner, but you're relatively sure you'll be riding quite a bit, I would actually recommend spending a few more dollars to get a slightly higher end boot. These will work for the budget conscious rider though.
"There are much better locks for the money" 2/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Burton Board Lock
  • Pros:  So if what you want to do is just lock your board to the rack when you're out riding just for some peace of mind, then this lock will work. It's retractable so the cable won't get all tangled up in your pocket, and it's somewhat easy to use. It also lets you set your own combination (as most of these locks do). The cable length is decent.
  • Cons:  The lock is ginormous. See that little yellow thing in the middle of the "lock"? That part comes out and is the actual mechanism which lets you lock the two ends of the cable together. The rest of it is the giant cable retracting mechanism. The lock doesn't fit comfortably in my pocket and having the lock able to separate from the cable mechanism makes it easy to lose one piece or the other. Having to take out the center lock piece every time I want to lock my board is a big hassle.

Experience:   I actually bought one of the small dakine locks after being dissatisfied with this one. Those are much easier to use, more compact, and don't come in two pieces. Also, I somehow cut myself on the metal portion of the lock so be careful of sharp edges.
"Good beginner bindings" 2/11/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Ride LX
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Boot hold, Comfortable, Well known brand, Easy installation
  • Cons:  Difficult in & out, Poor adjustability
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   So these bindings are definitely good for beginners if you're looking for something cheap to throw on your board and are still progressing. The thing is that these bindings have almost no adjustability. The toe strap can't be adjusted so it tended to ride off-center on my boot, there's no toe ramp, and you can't rotate the highbacks much at all. These bindings are relatively comfortable since the ankle strap is really quite plush and well shaped to keep your boot stable. The toe strap on the other hand isn't quite as comfy and is somewhat low quality. Cosmetically, the toe strap turned the front of my white boots black which wasn't so cool. While the ratchets work well when tightening the bindings, they would sometimes stick when I tried to unstrap my boots. But all in all, if you can get these bindings for under $60 or $70, they're a good deal and well worth it for the beginning snowboarder.
"Lightweight shoe" 1/18/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Gravis Makani
  • Pros:  This shoe is really comfy and looks nice. The cushioning is mainly a foam material which is nice and soft (but perhaps not so durable). There is a decent amount of arch support and ridges which support your toes. Good ventilation, which is excellent for the summer.
  • Cons:  It's a little bit lightweight so it feels lower quality when you're wearing them. They're definitely not good for rain because a lot of the shoe is a mesh sort of material which lets water through easily.

Experience:   Interesting blue color on the inside of the shoe, although no one sees that so it's fine.
"Good scraper" 1/11/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Tri Scraper Tool
  • Pros:  There are 3 sides and 6 effective surfaces to take off extra wax and a nice corner to take wax from the edges. The large shape makes it easy to hold, and it's a great price from Sierra.
  • Cons:  Like most scrapers, it gets worn down after a bit of use.

Experience:  
"Nice little tool" 1/7/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Bullet Tool
  • Pros:  feels heavy duty (even though parts of it are plastic) and rachet works great. screwdriver bits stow away so as not to poke you if you fall on it.
  • Cons:  a little bit bulky to carry around in a pocket, although it'd fit nicely in a travel bag

Experience:  
"Gig Bag" 12/30/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Gig Bag
  • Pros:  Space for a board with bindings, boots, and other miscellaneous stuff. The bag is moderately padded so it'll protect your gear fairly well. The inside of the bag is lined with a waterproof material so that wet gear shouldn't be a problem either.
  • Cons:  No wheels makes it slightly more difficult to transport long distances, but it does make it a little more compact.

Experience:  
"Good helmet for the price" 12/29/2008
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 K2 Clutch w/ Baseline Audio
  • Pros:  It's got quite a bit of soft padding on the inside so it doesn't hurt your head like some other helmets. It's also pretty warm because of the padding. The adjustable sizing strap on the back helps give it a good fit. Looks decent too.
  • Cons:  This helmet only has passive ventilation so it tends to get hot on warm days, although it's great when it's cold out. The built-in baseline audio is really low quality and really not even worth it.
