"BOOZEapalooza?" 12/23/2009
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Bruizzapalooza Steamboat, CO
  • Pros:  Shred, Booze, Porn
  • Cons:  It's only 2 days, No strippers, Shakazulu12 is attending

Experience:   Bruizzapalooza '09 Tahoe was legit, this will be better. Even though there will be more canadians at this event.

"Your feet hurt? Not anymore." 10/3/2009
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Salomon Pledge
  • Pros:  Superior Comfort, Nice look, Great speed lace system
  • Cons:  Not every boot is for every foot.,
  • Fit:  stiff
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  10.5
  • Boot Size:  10

Experience:   I own the 2009 version of this boot, the tech hasn't changed a ton on the 2010, it is a tad stiffer. I can't find reviews on this boot anywhere for 2009 or 2010 so I thought I'd give a little insight. This boot is great, if you have problems with your feet (going numb, soreness, etc ) this boot might be the answer to your problems. Super Comfortable, great lacing, tight heel hold. I was out in Utah with a pair of Burton Ion's that just weren't for me, so I picked up a pair of these pledges while I was out there and the difference was night/day. Try to get to a shop and try them on for the correct fit before you purchase them here, i wear a 10.5 sneaker and wear a 10 in this boot. Great boot for all-mountain freeriding, but you can kill it anywhere.

Any comparison of Ion versus Pledge? How does the width compare? Thanks.



"Legit" 3/15/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Rome Stanton Bonded
  • Pros:  Great waterproofing, Super Lightweight, Steezey
  • Cons:  No wrist gaiters, No inside pocket,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  Lightweight, waterproof, almost perfect.

Experience:   I bought this thing for spring riding, and it delivers. Very lightweight, has decent enough tech, look good, waterproofing is legit. I spent most of the day falling in pow stashes and didn't get wet. The bottom ribbed/cotton/stretchy part around the bottom will soak up a little water/ice but the jacket itself wont. Kept me warm all day in 40 degree colorado sun, when it got a bit windy you could feel it, but it wasn't bad at all. All in all its a sick hoodie that I'll probably buy another one of at some point soon. I just wish it had an inside pocket for my ipod and wrist gaiters, other than that its perfect.
"Sick." 12/12/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Bronco
  • Pros:  Gore-Tex, Low Profile, Zipper close
  • Cons:  You'll need a liner glove for sub-zero temps,

Experience:   I don't like big gloves, and these are the perfect answer. They are low profile, with great waterproofing. The only downside is that when you get to sub-zero wind-chills they aren't enough alone, you'll need to get a liner glove. I'd still definitely recommend these to anyone. I also have the Burton Superpipes, which are nice as well. The thing I like about the broncos though are that they have a zipper instead of the velcro.
"Just not for me." 5/8/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Cartel EST GMP
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Good construction quality, Well known brand, Popular model
  • Cons:  Boot slippage, Uncomfortable, Tricky instillation
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   I know these are one of the best selling bindings out there, they just weren't really my thing. I had a lot of issues dialing them in for angles, because its really difficult to see the shredbed angle imprints, and even if you do they dont see to line up correctly. I also had some comfort issues, and had a bunch of issues with the toecaps, that i've never had before. I don't think these are horrible bindings by any means, just not for me. Demo them if possible.
"Empty a clip!" 4/28/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 686 Smarty Uzi
  • Pros:  Breathable, Durable, Warm, Waterproof

Experience:   Great jacket. Very good tech, tons of pockets, and looks awesome. The chest seems big on me compared to the bottom where it fits around my hips a bit tighter, but it is still doable. I would recommend this jacket to anyone, 686 makes quality product
"Holy warm batman." 4/28/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Analog Transpose RDBL
  • Pros:  Awesome design, super warm, fits great.
  • Cons:  Too warm to wear in the spring probably.

Experience:   This thing is awesome, love how it looks but its definitely too warm to wear after march.
"Totally legit" 4/26/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Analog Perimeter
  • Pros:  Breathable, Durable, Warm, Waterproof
  • Description:  WEATHER: Spring Day, Blue Bird Powder Day, Cloudy and Cold, Snow and Rain Mixed, Sleet, Storming and White Out, LEG: Baggy, WAIST: Feels true to size, INSEAM: Feels too long,

Experience:   What's to say. Analog makes QUALITY gear, at a fair price, and with great tech and style. Can't go wrong with analog.
"Comfy x2" 3/23/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Analog Broadband
  • Pros:  Reversible! Super comfy. Fits true to size. Sick graphics.
  • Cons:  Can't wear it during the humid east coast summer.

Experience:  
"Phenomenal." 3/22/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Analog Strategy
  • Pros:  Durable, Warm, Waterproof
  • Description:  WEATHER: Blue Bird Powder Day, Cloudy and Cold, Snow and Rain Mixed, Storming and White Out, LEG: Relaxed, WAIST: Feels true to size, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

Experience:   Had these out this weekend and they are great. Very comfortable and the waterproofing is sick. Had a great tahoe POW day and didnt wear anything but underwear and was completely dry all day, despite spending a lot of time in the snow. Hah. Get these.
"Super." 3/20/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Superpipe
  • Pros:  Low profile (for goretex), warm
  • Cons:  still not as low profile as id like

Experience:   I dont like big gloves, so these were a good medium between waterproof and being low-profile. This is the best available for what I wanted.
"Uhm, wow." 3/18/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Ion
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Pros:  Heel hold, Comfortable, Easy lacing, Durable, Traction, Good quality, Breathable, Easy in & out, Well known brand, Popular model
  • Fit:  heel is snug

Experience:   Fantastic. The price tag on these made me weary but they were worth every penny. I upgraded from 07 moto's and I feel like a new rider. INCREDIBLY comfortable, great response, fantastic heel hold. They were geared for the EST system and advanced riders, but I would suggest these boots to anyone who doesn't mind the price tag. I love them. No cons yet, i've heard from sources that your toes can get cold but i've had no issues thus far.
"Great board, and not just for park." 3/15/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Hero
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Carving,Groomers
  • Pros:  lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Strong edgehold, Soft, Well known brand

Experience:   I love this board. I've only been riding for abuot 4 months but I had a ton of fun on this thing. I dont ride park and this board can absolutely shred all over the mountain. It gets a bit chattery when bombing, and in the chop, but other then that its great. Tons of fun.
"Not too bad." 3/15/2009
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:   Not bad. Lots of pockets, gets the job done. They are slightly baggy but not ridiculous.
"Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick & not just in the park!" 3/6/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Capita Saturnia Womens
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Groomers
  • Pros:  poppy, Strong edgehold, Great value, Soft, Well known brand
  • Cons:  Too soft

Experience:   Picked this up for my girlfriend as her first board. She loved it and did very very well on it. It's a tad soft for a beginner board but i knew that going in, and she had absolutely no issues. She loves this board. Great for all mountain, not just a park board.
"Super comfortable/Easy to setup. Union Rules!" 3/6/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Union Cadet Womens
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Durable, Good construction quality, Lightweight, Comfortable, Well known brand, Easy installation
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   Bought my girlfriend these bindings, and took them out. She loves them. Super comfortable, and she noticed a huge difference from the rental ones she's used in the past. They were incredibly easy to setup/adjust -- I would recommend these bindings to any level snowboarder
"Solid Bag" 2/28/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Freestyle Bag Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  Fits board nicely, enough padding to get the job done in my opinion. Fits my boots and has room for extra gear.
  • Cons:  Could be padded more. Tough to zipper the bag with boots in the outer pockets.

Experience:   Good bag, size up to fit extra gear in the bag with the board. (gloves, hat, goggles, etc)
"Absolutely Terrible" 2/25/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Nitro T2 Glove
  • Pros:  They make useful coasters?
  • Cons:  Filled with asbestos, and spider larvae.

Experience:   Honestly I wouldn't pay a penny less than $50,000 for these. Mine shipped with spider larvae. I was ok with it until they all hatched while I was hitting a jump. Freaked me out and I broke my leg. The asbestos I could have dealt with.
"Nice, comfortable boots with good heel hold." 2/11/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Moto
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Pros:  Heel hold, Comfortable, Easy lacing
  • Cons:  Low quality
  • Fit:  average

Experience:   Just picked up a pair of these because the 32 lashed i owned were a little big on me. I sized down a half size for these and they seem to fit absolutely perfectly. Great for beginner riders.
"Great tool for more than just snowboards." 2/11/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Cool Tool
  • Pros:  Small, lightweight, love the ratchet.
  • Cons:  None unless it breaks on me.

Experience:   Just got this today and i've already mounted some bindings with the quickness. I also used it to unscrew the case on my computer so i could replace a hard drive. Sweet!
"Uh, wow." 2/9/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Lib Tech Dark Series MTX
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomers,Powder
  • Pros:  poppy, Stable at high speeds, Strong edgehold, Stiff

Experience:   Im no expert, but this board is crazy. The 7 point contact system is amazing, edges are awesome, controlling the board is great too. This board is sick, and i'm totally not good enough to get the most out of it yet but I definitely notice a difference from the run of the mill beginner board(s) i've tried. The MTX is awesome, and I love the control I have over the board on groomers/all mountain. I'd recommend this to anyone
"Great Jacket" 2/9/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Analog Perimeter
  • Pros:  Breathable, Durable, Lightweight, Warm, Waterproof
  • Description:  WEATHER: Spring Day, Blue Bird Powder Day, Cloudy and Cold, CHEST: Feels true to size, BODY: Feels too long, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

Experience:   Mine just arrived this week, and i love it. Im quite picky about jackets and had already bought and resold one that didn't fit me right. Great jacket, on warmer spring days you can throw on a thermal shirt and this jacket and be golden. On colder days, layer up a bit and you are still fine. Tons of pockets, love the graphic hits on the jacket, and it has an athletic fit. Size up if you want it baggy.
"Love these gloves" 2/6/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Grenade Ambush Glove
  • Pros:  2 gloves for the price of 1 -- These come with a pipe glove underneath the regular glove so on warmer days you can just pull them out and use them, and for colder days use both. Sick graphics, both gloves look really cool.
  • Cons:  None yet, I haven't used them on an all-day run yet but on the 4 hour run i went on, they were perfect, didn't get wet and kept me toasty

Experience:   You can still text with the pipe gloves on!
"Not just a park board!" 2/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Capita Stairmaster
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomers
  • Pros:  lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy
  • Cons:  Top sheet scratches

Experience:   Everyone talks about what a great park board this is, and it is, but this board can hold its own everywhere. It chatters at high speeds, but other than that it rips. Don't be concerned about rocking this board on the groomers, it can hang.
"Great Step-In Bindings" 2/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Flow NXT AT
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Good construction quality, Lightweight
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   Great bindings, very comfortable and definitely the best step-in binding on the market in my opinion. If you want a step-in binder, grab these!
"Sweet jacket!" 1/29/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton AK 3L Sqwawk
  • Pros:  Breathable, Durable, Lightweight, Warm, Waterproof
  • Cons:  Not Enough Pockets or Features
  • Description:  WEATHER: Spring Day, Blue Bird Powder Day, Cloudy and Cold, Cold and Blustery Day, Snow and Rain Mixed, Sleet, Storming and White Out, CHEST: Feels true to size, BODY: Feels true to length, INSEAM: Feels true to length,

Experience:   Sweeeeet jacket. SUPER lightweight and warm. Waterproof too. Really the only downside i see to this, is it doesnt have ipod controls. But not everyone likes that, so its really more of a personal con.
