Pros: Comes with gloves and inserts, Many features: air vents, mid strap, etc., Waterproof
Cons: Hard to put on if grid inserts are used, A bit bulky,
I've had this set for over two seasons. I ride at least 1/2 day every three weeks, if not every other week. Once rode during a wet snow fall with these gloves and didn't feel cold at all. Besides the Goretex waterproof feature, I like the elastic bands. I can loop them around my wrists, so when I take them off, I don't have to worry about losing them. Also, the air vents can be used as pockets for warmers and/or lift tickets (@ Mt. High). The inserts can be used for colder days. They have sticky rubberish grids covering the whole hand on the palm side that helps with gripping things. I actually used these inserts when I drive, and they have never slipped. I use wrist-guards, and it was challenging to fit both the wrist-guards and inserts in the gloves. I recommend getting one size bigger if you are planning to use wrist guards.
I have used this for two seasons. Actually, I used it once on the top of a run to adjust my wife's binding, but lent it out to folks on the mountain many times (friends and stranger alike). It's compact tool, and it does the job. I would recommend this over the Burton AL 1 tool, which I own as well.
Pros: Have basic tools, Good iron, Good for waxing and light tuning/detuning
Cons: Need to buy more tools to supplement the kit, No instructions on how to use tuning tools,
The kit has basic tools for waxing and light tuning/detuning. The most expensive piece of the kit is the iron, and it has been working well. I used this kit about 5-6 times to wax my board. Overall a good kit to start with.
"Excellent bindings; fit perfectly with Hail" 2/27/2009
Name: 2008 Burton Mission
Pros: Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Good construction quality, Comfortable, Well known brand, Easy installation
Fit: fits fine
I used these bindings for 6 or 7 runs, and it works great. I especially like to toe cap which actually hold your toe without pinching it. My brother has a Freestyle and complained that on occasion he felt that he has to re-tight the front strap because it felt loosen. I don't have that problem. Overall very good product.
"Good bag for driving trips; not for air travel" 2/26/2009
Name: 2009 Burton Space Sack Snowboard Bag
Pros: Keep board from being scratched by other stuff; keep inside of car dry; fit bindings and boots
Cons: Not padded
This bag is good to keep your stuff on the way up the mountain. On the way down, it can store your wet board and dirty boots to keep the inside of your car dry. Be sure to not zip up fully, otherwise your stuff will smell like old laundry. Once you get home, also turn the bag inside out to dry.
Pros: Heel hold, Comfortable, Good quality, Warm, Waterproofing, Well known brand
Good heel hold, even better when the j-bars are in place. I was wearing my regular shoes to install tire chains and got my socks wet. Not damped, but wet. Did my best to squeeze the water out and rode with my wet socks. Although my feet and boots smell aweful at the end of the day. My feet felt warm the whole day.
Most resorts have benches and tools for riders adjust their bindings. However, my wife adjusted her bindings and didn't tight the screws tight enough. She didn't notice it until we were off the lift on top of the slope. If I didn't have this handy tool, she would have to waste time and energy to walk down to the base to fix her bindings. I think it's worth the money.
