Pros: Superior Comfort, Nice look, Great speed lace system
Cons: Not every boot is for every foot.,
Shoe Size: 10.5
Boot Size: 10
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.
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.
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.
Cons: You'll need a liner glove for sub-zero temps,
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.
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.
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

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.
Pros: Heel hold, Comfortable, Easy lacing, Durable, Traction, Good quality, Breathable, Easy in & out, Well known brand, Popular model
Fit: heel is snug
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.
Pros: lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Strong edgehold, Soft, Well known brand
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.
"Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick & not just in the park!" 3/6/2009
Name: 2009 Capita Saturnia Womens
Pros: poppy, Strong edgehold, Great value, Soft, Well known brand
Cons: Too soft
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
Name: 2009 Union Cadet Womens
Pros: Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Durable, Good construction quality, Lightweight, Comfortable, Well known brand, Easy installation
Fit: fits fine
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
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
Name: 2008 Burton Moto
Pros: Heel hold, Comfortable, Easy lacing
Cons: Low quality
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.
Pros: poppy, Stable at high speeds, Strong edgehold, Stiff
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
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,
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.
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
You can still text with the pipe gloves on!
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.

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.
