"Great all around bindings" 5/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton P1.1
  • Pros:  forgiving flex, great response, comfort
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   After starting out with softer bindings (burton freestyles) I eventually upgraded to cartels & forces and found that I loved the added response, but as a beginner/intermediate rider every once in a while i would miss the forgiving flex of the softer binding. The P1.1's are a great in-between, I feel the same response i did with the cartels & forces, while it provides just enough forgiving flex. The comfort also was a great bonus. Normally after about half a day i start to get pain in my feet when riding, but not with these bindings. I was originally bummed out when i couldn't find medium est cartels to go with my v-rocker and settled on some p1.1's, but now i couldn't be happier and will probably stick with the p1.1's for quite some time
"Nice Slim Fit" 4/15/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Foursquare Smith Slim Fit
  • Pros:  Fit, Comfort,
  • Cons:  Pocket Size,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Perfect, just as described, not too small or big

Experience:   I'm 5'9 160 and a size 31 waist. I went with the medium since i usually wear crash pads under my pants. With the crash pads its a perfect fit and w/o them its a bit loose. They give a slim, but not skin tight look either way. There is no need to size up if you want a slim fit, the fit is perfect and does not run small like some reviews say it does. The pants keep me dry and plenty warm in so cal winter weather and i'm plenty comfortable wearing them the whole day. My only issue with the pants are the size of the pockets, they are small and not much can fit in them. The rear pocket barely fits my wallet and i'm unable to close the snap when its in there.
"Burton Bonded Review" 5/30/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Bonded
  • Pros:  Great looking hoodie that can be used as street wear or out on a day riding in the spring. The fit is great as well. Not baggy or large like I've read in other reviews. I'm only 5'10" 165 and a medium fits great. Large for baggy, not overly baggy style.

"Burton Jeremy Jones Review" 5/1/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Jeremy Jones
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Heel hold, Comfortable, Durable, Good quality, Well known brand, Popular model
  • Cons:  Difficult in & out
  • Fit:  average

Experience:   Got these to go complete my ics setup. The fit is great and these are probably the most comfortable boots i've ever worn. They also came with Jbars which were great for added heel hold.
"Neff Bubbles Review" 5/1/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Neff Bubbles
  • Pros:  Light weight and a decent waterproof rating make this a great spring riding jacket. I say jacket because this thing looks and feels more like a snowboarding jacket than a sweater. It even comes with a removable powder skirt.
  • Cons:  Build quality seems a little suspect. The stitching was a bit off near the zipper on the jacket I received.
  • Description:  CHEST: Feels true to size, BODY: Feels true to length, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

"Burton Hero ICS Review" 4/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

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

Experience:   Heard about how playful and fun this board was and still was pleasantly surprised when i took it out for a first ride. It was pretty easy to butter and press the board and the edge hold was great. Nollies and Ollies were just as easy and this board is great to mess around on. Especially for someone who is just starting out in park/freestyle like me. It took less effort to do things on this board than others i've ridden. Paired with EST bindings this board is great for all levels of riding.
"Burton Cartel EST Review" 4/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

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

Experience:   After hearing about how you'll either love or hate the cartels, i was a bit hesitant on purchasing a pair to go with my hero. Now I'm glad i decided to go with the cartels. Felt no calf bite or the aggressive forward lean that they're know for. They were comfortable and held well throughout the day. Didn't have any boot slippage on the cap strap either and the response was awesome. Great binding and the EST tech is like icing on the cake. I'm fairly new to boarding (second season) and while i've played around with my angles a tad bit, i'm still searching for the right ones. The EST system makes this even easier as you only need to loosen two screws per binding. Normally i have to pretty much loosen the whole base plate to change the angle settings. Another plus of the EST is that it makes it pretty easy to mess around with my stance width. Normally i haven't messed around with it too much, because of how long it takes to change between runs, but today i found my self messing around with the width after every other run.
"Burton Baker Review" 4/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Baker
  • Pros:  Keep my hands warmer and drier than any glove i've owned. First pair of mitts i've used and loved them. They have vents that allow you to cool down a bit without taking them off. And if you actually need to take them off to cool down, they come with straps that attach to your wrists that allow you to have no worries about them falling off while on the chairlift.
  • Cons:  Not as much dexterity, but thats to be expected with mittens.

Experience:  
"Dakine Torque Driver Tool Review" 4/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Torque Driver Tool
  • Pros:  Small and compact so it can be easily carried in your jacket or pants when you ride. Like how it fits in your hand for added torque for screwing. Also first pocket tool i've seen that come with 3 sizes for a Phillips head.
  • Cons:  Seems like it could easily break. Storage compartment sucks. Basically have to take everything out to find what you need, but if you only use 1 or 2 i guess you can leave the rest at home.

Experience:   I also own the burton bullet tool and while it feels more burly and doesn't seem like it would break as easily. I prefer the dakine pocket tool.
"Capita Mid Life Lost Review" 3/28/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Capita Mid Life Lost
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Durable, lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Stable at high speeds, Strong edgehold, Great value, Well known brand

Experience:   Originally ordered the last 155 in stock, but UPS ended up breaking my board. Decided i would go with a 158 and make this my all mountain board. Happy with the choice, because this board is still really light at that size. Its poppy and gets in the air a lot easier than my last board that was a 155. It held great edge and edge to edge transition was smooth. Never ridden a sintered base before and was pleasantly surprised with how fast it was. Also, the graphics on the board are awesome. Looks even better in person.
"Dakine Convert Leash Review" 3/27/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Convert Leash
  • Pros:  Works as well as any other leash. But first one i've seen with designs and/or different colors, for some added steeze.

Experience:  
"Best stomp pad out there" 3/27/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Dakine Clutch Stomp
  • Pros:  Good grip, good size, better than a lot of stomp pads out there. Even when covered in snow it still gives enough grip to get off the lift with no problems.

Experience:  
"Neff Facemask Review" 3/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Neff Facemask
  • Pros:  Has fleece lining thats great for added warmth. Longer length than ordinary bandannas to help keep your neck warm too.
  • Cons:  Even when tied pretty tight, it tends to slip down the face, so i have to use my nose groove in my goggles to keep it up

Experience:  
"great for edges, tip, & tail" 3/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Tri Scraper Tool
  • Pros:  Great for scraping the tip and tail sections which are usually hard to scrap areas. Also has a small notch thats great for your edges
  • Cons:  a bit small for scraping the majority of the base

Experience:  
"Von Zipper Feenom Review" 3/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Von Zipper Feenom
  • Pros:  These are great goggles that never fog up and the lense is huge! great for those large & medium size faces. I got the replicator skull candy ones. It came with two straps, one for the headphones and one for no headphones. It was really easy to change straps. They also came with a headset so you can use the headphones w/o the goggles
  • Cons:  The cord for the headphones is really long for snowboarding. There's also a bulky device on the cord that i guess is suppose to add bass, but all it really does is vibrate.

Experience:  
"Union Force Review" 2/24/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Union Force
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Durable, Good construction quality, Comfortable, Well known brand, Popular model, Easy installation
  • Cons:  Heavy

Experience:   These are the most comfortable bindings i have ever used. I usually get pain in my feet after about half a day of riding, but with these i was pain free after a full day ready for some more. The construction and quality of materials on these bindings are amazing and the adjustability is excellent. The only con is that they may be too narrow for wider feet. I wear a size 11 and they fit almost the entire width.

Experience:   sick white/mint colorway. kept hearing how good 32s were and finally upgraded from some dc boots that were nowhere near as comfortable. 32 is my new fav brand.
