"Good All Around Binding" 10/28/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2009 Forum The Republic Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Very Adjustable, Durable, Comfortable Straps
  • Cons:  Small pieces on adjustment screws, Ankle ratchet sometimes hard to take off,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Good overall binding. Used these all last year with no major problems. They look nice, are comfortable and easily adjusted. I used them mostly on groomers and some powder. The straps are comfy but the ankle ratchet binds up from time to time. I really enjoyed the toe cap strap which paired up well with the Burton Hail boots I use. The only other small complaint I have is the small clear plastic pieces that attach to the adjustment screws on the heel cup. The pieces are hard to find if you drop them. Overall good binder. Worth trying out.
"Fun board in soft snow" 2/14/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 Capita Totally FK'N Awesome Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Powder
  • Pros:  Good Flex, Great in soft snow, Holds a good edge
  • Cons:  A little sketchy on ice,

Experience:   I rode this board the past two weeks in the PNW at Lookout Pass ID, Mt. Spokane WA, Crystal Mtn. WA, and Mt. Bachelor OR. This board shines in soft snow and on groomers. The flex is rated at a 6 on Capita's scale, which I think is pretty accurate. Its a tad softer than NAS and a good bit softer than the 09 GNU Riders choice MTX. The board has a little setback in the stance which makes it super fun in powder. This is my first time using a hybrid camber board and I was impressed. The FK made it float better in softer snow than my regular camber boards. It just felt a little easier to ride and the turn initation was almost effortless. Overall this is a great board which i'm going to keep around. The only drawback/complaint I have is it felt a little sketchy in icy conditions. I rode a night session at Mt. Spokane and the runs were icy and the conditions were windy and I just couldn't get comfortable on it. I kept washing out while stopping and making high speed turns, though on the groomed stuff it was fine. To be fair this might have been operator error. I was tired and really not feeling the conditions. I live in the Southeast so i'm planning to try it again in NC where the snow is not the best and full of ice before the season is done. This is a super fun board and the graphics make me laugh every time I pull it out of the bag. It looks like a leftover prop from the movie ski patrol. This is a good all mtn. board for intermediate riders and people who like stiffer boards. I'm not a park rider so I can't speak of it's prowess in that area. Oh i'm 5'9 about 195lbs and was riding a 159.
"Good pants for warmer days." 2/19/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Sessions Achilles Snowboard Pants
  • Pros:  light weight, breathable, comfortable
  • Cons:  rip easily ,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  standard

Experience:   Used these pants over the past two weeks in AZ. The first week at Sunrise the temps were in the high 50s the snow was packed powder and ice in spots. In warmer temp these pants are great. The vents work great but the netting in the crotch zipper catches and tears.The second week was at Snowbowl in Flagstaff more packed powder and ice. The temps were much colder 20's and 30's. These pants were a little too thin for my liking even with a base layer. The fit of the pants is great and the tabs on the legs to pull the cuffs up is a awesome innovation which makes going through a muddy parking lot no big deal. My only gripe with these pants is the bottom of the leg tore up. The thin material got chewed up by the edge of my board while riding the lifts. Overall good pants better suited for warmer days.
"The shiz" 12/15/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: 2011 Bern Watts Snowboard Helmet Men's
  • Pros:  Low profile, Removable liner, Light weight
  • Cons:  Visor may not be compatible with some goggles,

Experience:   I really enjoy using this helmet. I've never been a big fan of helmets but started using one after a friend had an epic digger that ended with an ambulance ride. It's a light weight, low profile and comfortable to wear. It has a small visor that works a little better with my Electric EG 1's than my Oakley Crowbars. Both fit but the curve of the electrics fit more naturally with the curve of the visor. The fuzzy liner is removable with a few snaps and some velcro. I guess it's an all weather deal accordind to the box. The helmet has vents in the top for warmer weather which is nice. The vents have a neoprene type cover that fits on the inside of the helmet for colder days. The only draw back to the cover is it just sits in the top of the helmet. It could easily get lost. Mine stayed in all last year but time will tell how good the design is. One thing to keep in mind when buying a bern helmet is the different types of foam they use. The hard hat version uses Brock foam and the other version uses a EPS foam for larger impacts. There is good info out there to help you decide which best suits your application. I would recommend this helmet. It's a little pricey but worth it to protect the noggin.
"Good pair of boots" 12/15/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Hail Snowboard Boots
  • Pros:  Warm, Durable,
  • Cons:  Sqeaky ,
  • Shoe Size:  9.5
  • Boot Size:  9.0

Experience:   I bought this boot a couple years ago and have nothing but positive things to say about it. I bought them at a shop in Atlanta. I'm not sure I got the most knowledgeable fitter but he recommended getting half size smaller. They were mildly uncomfortable the first few times out but after they broke in they fit like a glove. They are very warm and durable. Also easy to keep clean. A nice feature was they came with extra laces. The only negative is they squeak like a mofo. My best guess is the squeaking comes from the articulating cuff rubbing on the lower part of the boot. There will be no sneaking up on anyone while wearing these boots. I used these boots on mostly groomed runs in New Mexico and Arizona. They have been through a few powder days with no problems. They worked well with the Forum republic bindings. The toe shape is kind of blunt so they don't fit as well with the toe straps on the Union Force bindings as my DC boots do. I mostly just putt around so I can't attest on their jumping ability. Overall good durable boot worth the price.
"It's a sock for sure!" 7/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Buffer
  • Pros:  Nice Fit, Warm, No too Bulky
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  True to size

Experience:   These are very nice socks. What's to say about them, they stay on well, they stay up and they keep the feet warm. I liked that they wern't to thick and didn't bunch up. The price was good. They are very similar to Euro Sports socks in styling and price. So I think price would be a deciding factor to purchase more. Socks did as advertised with no performance gains to crappy rider. Must be the Boots.
"Awesome Jacket" 4/29/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Special Blend Control
  • Pros:  Lots of pockets, Very Dry, Durable
  • Cons:  Zipper Hard to use,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  Baggy

Experience:   This was my primary jacket this year. Held up great to wear and tear. The snow skirt zips out so you can wear it after boarding. The fit was a little baggy which I like. The zipper didn't function as well as I would have liked and the snow skirt tore in the wash. Overall good quality product.
"Nice Binding" 4/29/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2010 Union Sierra Contact SL
  • Pros:  Nice Comfy Straps, Light Weight, Easy to adjust
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   This binding feels nice on the board. The straps are plush and the adjustments are easy to make. Haven't got a chance to use them on the mountain yet, hopefully the thoughtful design translates to great performance. Awesome price!
