"Space Sack" 12/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Space Sack Snowboard Bag
  • Pros:  Durable, Cost Effective,
  • Cons:  Not Enough Padding,

Experience:   No complaints at all - the bag seems pretty solid and well put together. I would recommend getting the biggest size possible regardless of how big your board is - the extra space is really useful for cramming in boots, pants, beanies, base layers and all that sweaty junk that you don't want to mix with the rest of your clothes. My only worry is that the shoulder strap attaches with what seems to be a pretty flimsy plastic clip, but it may well prove tougher than I am assuming; all in all a great bag for road trips. I'd look for something with a little more padding for more protections to use with air trips.
"Oakley Corked!" 12/6/2010
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Oakley Corked Snowboard Jacket Men's
  • Pros:  Super Water Resistant, Durable, Super Comfortable
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   Just purchased this jacket a few weeks ago and it is incredibly warm and protects you from the elements extremely well. Wind and moisture don't have a chance at penetrating the shell. You'll obviously still want to use layers in the colder temps but a single layer underneath with suit you just fine on an average 30 degree day with this jacket. Just remember to layer up with thermals and you'll be smiling all day long in this thing!
"Team SkyBack" 12/14/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Team Skyback
  • Pros:  Super Durable, High Quality, Great price!!

Experience:   I recently bought these to replace the stock hi-backs on my missions, because I snapped one of them in the park, they are much better than the stock ones and they do not have the forward lean adjusters that like to fall off for some reason if you aren't paying any attention like the factory hi-backs. Regular hi-back with even the lowest setting have so much more forward lean than these; definitely look to get these if you are like me and don't like that much lean. These are the perfect addition to the missions, highly recommended!!

Comments & Questions

oskarsig
Hi I am wondering what size your mission's are? I really want this high back but I see it is medium size, will that fit large Burton bindings? Thanks



"Retro Non-Padded Disc" 12/14/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Retro Disc
  • Pros:  Super Durable, Cost Effective,
  • Cons:  Full MSRP Price,

Experience:   I used these before my padded discs, and these worked just as well, but I do slightly prefer those padded ones. These lock tight with the base, and there are no compatibility issues what-so ever! They even work on Forum Bindings and if you do a little modification, they can work with your Union bindings as well, which I have done, and they work pretty well. If you can find the padded ones, definitely get those, but these are just fine. A great thing to have if you don't have EST bindings, or don't want to use them.
"Burton Retro Padded" 12/14/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Retro Disc
  • Pros:  Universal, Durable - Well Made,
  • Cons:  Pretty Pricey,

Experience:   These Burton Discs will allow you to fit any burton binding you want on the Burton ICS binding interface. You can also figgle with the discs to make them work with Union Bindings to make them sit in there, as well as forum bindings as well. These are great with the padding on there, I love the ICS system on the boards, and be able to use Union bindings makes it the perfect setup!
"Burton Kit" 12/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Q Kit Snowboard Kit
  • Pros:  High Quality, Has Basic Needs, Great price for what you get!

Experience:   This is the best, that is all you need to know. I am not entirly sure about the whole set but the tool is amazing. I bought it for like 8 bucks on sale. I no longer have to go off a jump with the fear of landing on the tool in my pocket the wrong way. The goggle squeegee on the side of it is a nice touch for those crazy snow days. This is definitely a great kit for just the essentials, the tool alone is worth it. If you don't need more tuning tools, definitely check this one out!
"Dakine Files" 12/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Dakine Replacement Snowboard Files
  • Pros:  Durable - Will Last Many Seasons, High Quality, Great Price!!

Experience:   I have one of these, have for a couple of seasons. It hasn't given me a durability problem, although I suppose I don't use it super-heavily. I love the simplicity - if I'm being good about keeping my boards and skis tuned, I just hit each edge a couple of times with the finer side of the file, wax, and go. I have this with the dakine full kit and definitely some quality gear by them. Highly recommended!
"Dakine Wax" 12/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Dakine Nitrous Wax 3oz
  • Pros:  Lasts Long, High Quality, Great Value & Price!

Experience:   I've usually always used All conditions wax. All conditions means its got to work in at least one condition, right? Now I've used both this and the Swix and find them pretty comparable, with the Dakine significantly less expensive. Either way, waxed certainly beats the pants off unwaxed. Burton is too expensive, and although Swix is well known and great, you definitely can't beat this stuff for the price and quality!
"Red Helmet" 12/12/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Red Prime Snowboard Helmet Men's
  • Pros:  Super Comfortable, Perfect fit & Design,
  • Cons:  Cost,

Experience:   All in all, I absolutely love this helmet. It fits very well and is a super low profile helmet. The secret vent adjusters under the beak is extremely useful, and doesn't add crazy looking vents all over your helmet. Its nice and light and you can definitely wear a something like a hoodie over it if you want, that's how low-pro it is. RED is the company to go for. Tech, style AND comfort all rolled into one. It's held up for the end of last season and the start of this one, I am sold on the RED helmet line!
"Boxer Thermals" 12/12/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Lightweight Boxer
  • Pros:  Wicks sweat, Great material, lightweight
  • Cons:  price,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Perfect Fit - Old Navy / American Eagle Sizing

Experience:   At full price these may be a bit much, but on sale these are an awesome deal. Just like how the bottom and top thermals wick away sweat and stink, these do the same. They are lightweight, breathe easily, and are very comfortable which is most important. Highly recommended!
"Burton Duffel" 12/12/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Boothaus Large Duffel Bag
  • Pros:  HUGE!!, Durable, & Well Designed,
  • Cons:  None!,

Experience:   I ordered this duffel bag about a month ago now. I am loving it! It is so much easier and better to pack this up when heading to the mountain, instead of having everything in the back of the car. I am one of those people who tends to bring one to many extra shirts just in case. I have plenty of room for all of the extra gear and don't feel like the seams are going to bust out on me. I purchased the large so if you are looking for something a bit smaller don't be afraid to order the smaller one, I am sure it will be enough room for all of your stuff. Highly recommended, I won't go to the mountain without it now!
"Signal Stripe" 12/11/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Signal Stripe Snowboard Jacket Men's
  • Pros:  Very Waterproof, Great Design, Definitely Comfortable!
  • Cons:  None!!,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   Step outside into 20 degree weather and not worry, because besides wearing this jacket, the ladies will be digging this simple, yet great design. This jacket stood well against serious wind chills, rain and snow. With a plethora of pockets, you could get your gadgets and gears with the reach of a zipper or pocket. The arm is a little too long, but one day I realized that I forgot my gloves home and I thanked the heavens that the jacket's arms were long. It also helps with the thumb holes, I can't get a jacket without those now, so nice! All in all this is a solid jacket with serious style. Signal knows what they are doing with outwear, and I am really satisfied with my pants and jacket. I Definitely recommend this jacket, or any of Signal's products. Rep some Made In The USA!
"Head 15 Bindings" 12/11/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Head Mojo 15 W97 Ski Bindings 515 - Men's
  • Pros:  Durable, Lightweight, Super Easy In & Out

Experience:   If 15 din bindings are what you are looking for, these are the perfect ones for you! Head has been making bindings for today's progression. The R&D program has worked to make these bindings strong yet light and to perform in the safest way possible. They stay on when you need them and perform to keep you safe and injury free too. I have skied these bindings for a few seasons now and I do not feel comfortable on anything else. Pair these with some quality skis and you have the ultimate setup in my opinion!
"Automatic Ski Poles" 12/11/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 K2 Automatic Ski Poles
  • Pros:  Durable, Lightweight,
  • Cons:  Tad bit uncomfortable,

Experience:   All in all, the Automatics do the job. The grips could be better - my hands ached a bit with thinner gloves, but these are great for packed snow. The baskets are far too thin for powder, but if the base is packed you'll be fine. The poles are fairly stiff, but if you're really, really hard on your poles they may be too flexible for you. So I'd say they are medium flex in my opinion. These are also super lightweight, K2 definitely has their tech and design down, I highly recommend these!!
"Burton Gore Gloves" 12/10/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton GoreTex Gloves
  • Pros:  Super Durable, Very Waterproof!!!, Comes w/ a liner too!
  • Cons:  Hands Still Get Cold,

Experience:   All around, I'd say these are almost perfect, great gloves down to about 25 degrees. These are incredibly water proof! They are also very durable, I've had no problems with wear so far after a full season. Could use more insulation since my fingers still get cold. The vent for air or hand warmers dont do any good if you stick hand warmers in there. At least, I haven't noticed any improvement. I just bought some mittens to hopefully help with the cold, we will see. I'd give it a 5 star if my hands would stay warm. All in all great gloves, maybe it's just my bad circulation.
"Burton Corp. Hoodie" 12/10/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Corp Logo Vertical Fullzip Hoodie - Men's
  • Pros:  Very Warm, Fits Perfectly, Very Comfortable,
  • Cons:  Top of the Zipper Scratches,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   All in all, this is a great hoodie from Burton. Last week I had forgotten my coat at home when I went snowboarding. Thankfully, I had this sweatshirt with me in the car. It zips up higher than most sweatshirts and keeps you neck protected from the cold. There are two things that I wish were better designed. One, the pockets are rather shallow, my cell phone falls out quite easily. Two, though it zips up around your throat, the zipper scratches my neck up pretty bad. There should be a piece of cloth that folds over the zipper. Burton designs and produces quality stuff in my opinion, and this is no exception, but have to give it a 4 1/2 because of the uncomfortable zipper; it really does bother me that much.
"Burton 2L Pants" 12/10/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton 2L Gore-Tex Maestro
  • Pros:  Super WaterProof!, Comfortable / FITS PERFECT!, FASHIONABLE, NOT TO CRAZY
  • Cons:  Small Con: Venting,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L

Experience:   Purchased the cargo pants, used them for a few days and re-sold them before getting these awesome pants. These are definitely a much better product!! Nice relaxed fit, a bit of a surprise coming from the AK line, its usually a much tighter fit. Rode with them in a storm yesterday and they worked like a charm! My only complaint is the lack of webbing/netting on the leg venting. Other than that these pants are great for your kit! It makes sense that the venting isn't as much as I'd prefer since they want to make them super waterproof, so overall i give these pants 4 out of 5 pow turns, and I would highly recommend them!
"Burton Field" 12/9/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Field Snowboard Pants Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Great Design & Style,
  • Cons:  Durability is a little iffy,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L

Experience:   I have a couple week of snowboarding in the pants. The performance is off the hook!! They keep me super dry and comfortable. The only concern is the minimal wear and tear that I have submitted them too and the snap that holds up the pant cuff has already broken off and the embroidery on the lower leg is already frayed and has a couple small cuts that happened too easily. The design and fit is great, just not too sure about the durability yet. Could be a bit tougher I thought though, I hope at least!
"Union Contacts!" 12/9/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings - Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Durable, Great Quality for a Great Price!
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   These guys definitely make a lot of quality bindings. This is the only one that makes me ride like Mr. Ruf. Well. it makes me feel like I'm riding like Gigi. It has great cushion underfoot and definitely helps the board flex better. It's about the same weight as the Force MC, but a little softer so it's more extremely comfortable for me. I really liked the look of the highback but I was questioning its strength and performance until I rode it, it really is a great design. All around great bindings, Union has me sold on their products, highly recommended!!
"Palmer PLine" 12/9/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Palmer P-Line
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Off Trail
  • Pros:  Fast & Stable, Great Graphic, Price!

Experience:   This Palmer board is super easy and fun to ride! I think beginners and intermediate riders alike would have a blast on this board. So far this season I've encountered a little ice and a whole lot of powder and the P Line has been a great board in all situations. I've got some union bindings to go with it, which make for a super comfy ride. They're a big help when you're putting in a full day on the mountain or landing jumps in the flats. It is pretty stable with high speeds, and all around for this price I'd definitely suggest it to a friend just beginning or wanting to progress more.
"Day Hiker" 12/8/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Day Hiker 12L
  • Pros:  Roomy!, Very Comfortable - Straps, Fashionable
  • Cons:  none!,

Experience:   All in all a very nice pack. Lots of room. Can fit a laptop or some books if your not on the mountain. Two complaints though... 1.No pocket for your hydration bladder so it has to be in the main pocket, if you dont have a sleeve, your vinyl bladder will get poked and most likely get popped. 2.There is no fleece lined goggle/mp3 pocket. The pocket is there, but NO FLEECE, even though the ad says there is. Not a huge problem for either of them, but just something to look out for and make sure you consider when buying. All around a great, comfortable and roomy pack! I love this thing!!
"Burton Vices" 12/8/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Snowboard Tuning Vises
  • Pros:  Built Very Well, Easy to Use,
  • Cons:  Pricey,

Experience:   If you like to tune up your board on your own then the tuning vice is a must. Very easy to use. Can be used on any table. Does an excellent job holding the board in place whether your waxing or tuning up the edges. A little expensive, but not going on a few trips to get it tuned will pay these off in no time! Highly recommended!!
"Dakine Tune Kit" 12/8/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Dakine Super Tune Snowboard Tune Kit
  • Pros:  Pretty Fair Price, Useful,
  • Cons:  Not Top Notch Tools, Not Enough Wax,

Experience:   I am happy overall with the tuning kit, but I think you guys should make it clear that the kit DOES NOT include a base edge guide, which more advanced tuners will have to buy seperately. Also, the small amount of wax is barely enough to do the board once. Finally, the file guide for the side edges is not even close to top end. that being said, the kit is overall very useful and, for what you pay for it, one cannot really complain. That's what you get for an all in one kit for this price.
"Falcon Boots" 12/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Salomon Falcon 9 Ski Boots Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Lightweight, Durable
  • Cons:  Somewhat Dif. Entry & Exit,

Experience:   These boots are definitely comfy. I was looking at the newer model that I had skied last year and loved but as soon as I tried the '10 version on I was sold. I have a regular width foot and these fit me perfectly. The front buckle system is one of the best I've used with boots, I am definitely sold on the design and mechanics Salomon is using. I have heard a few comments about them being a 'cold' boot but they seem warm enough for me. If you really are worried about that just layer up on some good socks, or get foot warmers... Problem Solved! Fantastic boot all around, love Salomon!
"Root Review" 12/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Giro Roots Goggles
  • Pros:  Vent Well, Great Periph, Super Comfortable

Experience:   I got these goggles a couple of seasons ago and havent needed another pair yet. They seem to do well in any light conditions.. blue sky.. dusk.. anything so far. Great peripheral vision and super comfortable. I also ride with a Giro G10 helmet and they fit perfectly as promised by Giro. Ventilation is great as well, I have yet to have a fogging issue with these! All in all I think they're a great pair of goggles and highly recommend them!
"Wheelie Cargo" 12/6/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Wheelie Cargo
  • Pros:  Durable, Tons of Room!, Perfect Size for Carry-On
  • Cons:  Full MSRP Price,

Experience:   I bought this as a x-mas gift for a person who travels alot with various loads to carry. Bag is well built and frim, yet flexible enough for what needs to be carried. plenty of room in the main compartments for lots of items. It has held up very well thru 2 winter airline trips so far. Nice design and colors. I do wish the wheels were a little bigger for getting around in snow, but overall, very satisfied with the bag.
"For the Price, Great Deal!" 12/6/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Moto Snowboard Boots Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Durable, Great Value
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I picked up last years model - and have put about 30 full days in them. To start, the single lace cable system works well. There is an upper zone that goes from the ankle up the shin, and a lower zone covering the top of the foot. You are able to get a nice custom fit, and I never need to re-adjust after I first put them on; which is huge, the system definitely works! Nothing has broken/fallen off/malfunctioned all year and look forward to this season in them. Only drawback I would say is that it is a stiffer boot that what I expected, if you are looking for a new shoe for a freestyle setup - choose another.
"Dakine MItts" 12/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Element Mitt Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Very Warm & Dry, Great Price/ Value

Experience:   I purchased these mitts last year and absolutely love them. They are warm enough when the weather is cold and the fit allows for easy access to equipment when needed. I like the three different layers and the ability to customize these gloves to different situations, all around a great pair to own everyday!
"Red Helmet" 12/5/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Red Trace Snowboard Helmet Men's
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Good Price, Well Ventilated
  • Cons:  Velcro Strap,

Experience:   Overall, the helmet is a good product. It's comfortable, light, well ventilated, inexpensive and not terrible bulky. The manual didn't explain the that funky looking rubber thing that came with it was to plug up the vents and I threw it out... (I thought it was some kind of padding if the helmet didn't fit right). Also, the helmet straps love to stick to the velcro on my jacket collar and are starting to get pulled apart and fuzzy.
"Inkd Buds" 12/4/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Skullcandy Ink'd Earbuds
  • Pros:  Great Sound Quality, Comfortable, Great Warranty

Experience:   So one day I was on my college campus, and my earbuds went out on me. I had been through about 4 or 5 pairs of headphones in the 2 years I had had my iPod, so it became standard for me to need a new pair all the time. When I put these in my ear, I was AMAZED at how much better the bass was compared to other headphones I had tried (some of which were more expensive). This was all back a couple years ago...it is now 2010 and I am just now needing new ones b/c mine are (finally) going out. So all this bs people are saying about them going out is kinda' weird for me. I have wrapped and unwrapped those things around my iPod for years and have not had any trouble with them until recently. The cord is finally starting to come apart at the base. So I finally get to buy a pretty color pair. These headphones are great! I would recommend them to anyone. They are very nicely made and all come with a life-time warranty or option to get a discount on your next purchase if your headphones should fail. So I say this, you will spend just as much money (if not more) on nicer earbuds that will break in half the time. It can't hurt to try them. Mine have lasted 4 times longer than other headphones.
"Reg. Smoking Buds" 12/4/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2009 Skullcandy Smokin Buds Earbuds
  • Pros:  Good Sound Quality,
  • Cons:  Not Comfortable,

Experience:   After my 3rd set of in-ear buds, I've decided that these are just ok unfortunately. I'm built pretty normal but none of the 3 interchangeable earpieces fit me. I feel like the middle ones should fit, but they just won't stay put. Also, the cord is a tad too long and keeps getting snagged on things. On the bright side, the sound quality is good and the volume control on the cord is very convenient and useful like other skullcandy buds. For 20 bucks, not a terrible set, but don't expect anything amazing.
"Smokin Buds" 12/4/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Skullcandy Smokin Buds Earbuds w/ Mic
  • Pros:  Great Sound Quality, Comfortable,

Experience:   I couldn't wait for the arrival of my Skullcandy Smokin' white buds because I have always been an Skullcandy fan, for their product is actually worth more then the price that they sell it for. The packing was good for 10/10, but when I opened up the box and saw my Skullcandy plastic case it was broken like it was open or about to be and also it look like it had been siting around a dusty area, but on the other hand when I used it on max with my Itouch it did out perform most of the earbuds that I have used in the past so I couldn't complain much for the plastic case being dirty. As I expected from an Skullcandy product its a 10/10+!!
"Burton Tool" 12/3/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Zip Snowboard Tool
  • Pros:  super easy to use, if on sale, great price, Useful everyday!
  • Cons:  Not machined perfectly,

Experience:   I found this to be a pretty good tool, great size. The screw bits, in mine at least, don't fit in very good, and are almost useless for some jobs. The wrench isn't made perfect either, in the sense that it has troubles fitting back into its place after use. Those are pretty much my only complaints that everything isn't machined perfectly, but for this price that's okay. Definitely worth looking at, this or the est tool.
"Party Socks" 12/3/2010

  • Name: 2010 Burton Party
  • Pros:  Comfortable, Durable, Warm, Wicks Well
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M

Experience:   Ok, pretty hefty price for socks, but these are great! So I bought these in a moment of weakness when I had some extra money lying around, and they are some of the best snowboard socks I've ever had; they are great. They keep ya warm, dry, and comfortable all day while riding.
"Burton Softshell" 11/29/2010

  • Name: 2010 Burton Softshell Hoodie
  • Pros:  Warm, Stays Dry, Stylish
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Great!

Experience:   Cozy jacket. I purchased this last season on super sale from the local shop. Turned out to be a nice coat. It's got great style and fit. Usually wore it as a base layer which had just the right amount of protection to strip down to when hiking and touring. Also works good as a top layer when warmer like the product description says. Only thing missing, which is kind of key when wearing it as a top layer, is the powder skirt. Only other complaint is it's not made in the USA...bangladesh, but good luck finding any gear that's not made over seas! Nice jacket but I wouldn't recommend it unless it's on sale.

  • Pros:  Great Quality, Warm, Great Fit
  • Cons:  Price, at full price,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Great Fit

Experience:   I got three pairs for my birthday, and I can't say one bad thing about these. On sale these are a great deal, but at full price they may be a bit much, even though great socks like Smart Wool are even a bit more. I definitely recommend these, they will keep your feet nice and warm, and dry too!

  • Pros:  Great quality, Comfortable,
  • Cons:  Runs a little large,
  • Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  A little big

Experience:   This is a great hoodie, but it does run a little big compared to Burton's other clothes it seems. Usually I wear a Medium, but for some reason this one is just a little larger than that. Great fit, but I would size down one size.

  • Name: 2007 Burton Vapor Short Sleeve
  • Pros:  Lightweight, Great Design,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Snug

Experience:   Opposed to what other reviews say, this still has not shrunk, but I have washed it in cold water every time. It's a great fit, definitely a comfortable, snug fit.
"Burton Thermals" 5/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Burton Outlast Midweight Thermal Crew
  • Pros:  The perfect weight, not too light, not too heavy, Keeps you very warm, Very durable!
  • Cons:  none,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Great Fit

Experience:   I have had these for 2 years now, and like their current year's thermals, there have been absolutely no problems at all, I can only say good things about them. Look no further for better thermals, burton has got them down to a T. Highly recommended, these are the perfect weight too for most days.
"Thermals" 5/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Midweight Thermal Pants
  • Pros:  Durable, Breathable, Comfortable
  • Cons:  Full Price is High,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Perfect fit like their t-shirts and clothing

Experience:   These are my go-to thermals on most days, they are perfect weight that will keep you warm but won't make you sweat. Not much more to say about them, except they do their job, and very well at that. Look no further for other ones, I have had these for a few years and are still kicking strong without any tears or wicking issues.
"Boxer Thermals" 5/2/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Lightweight Thermal Boxers
  • Pros:  Wicks sweat, Great material, lightweight
  • Cons:  price,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Perfect Fit - Old Navy / American Eagle Sizing

Experience:   At full price these may be a bit much, but on sale these are an awesome deal. Just like how the bottom and top thermals wick away sweat and stink, these do the same. They are lightweight, breathe easily, and are very comfortable which is most important. Highly recommended!

Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Eco Nico
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Off Trail
  • Pros:  Stable, High Quality, Great Build - Enviro Friendly
  • Cons:  Custom X if you have more money,

Experience:   All around a great board. This is my go-to board when not in the park. It is fun, very stable, and awesome graphics. Good Wood, highly recommended if you are looking at a custom x but don't want to spend the money. You'll definitely have fun with this!
"Poacher Pants" 4/30/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Poacher
  • Pros:  Great Durability, Great style, Great Price
  • Cons:  Not as waterproof as I'd hope for,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Not too tight, not too baggy

Experience:   Don't get me wrong, these are great pants, but I was just hoping for a little bit more waterproofing. Since they are just shells there isn't a problem with warmth since that is what underlayering is for, but the only problem I had with these were that my legs were getting a little cold / damp, especially on the knees. All around great pair of pants, but next time I'll put up some more money for better waterproofing.
"Poacher Jacket" 4/30/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Poacher
  • Pros:  Great Material, Great Style, Waterproof
  • Cons:  none,
  • Jacket Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Perfect Fit

Experience:   For a great price, this jacket is awesome. It's a great shell with pretty good waterproofing. I have had this for about a year now and it is still holding up strong. Great durability, and for the price I paid, 1/2 off, it is an awesome jacket!
"Burton Exile's" 4/30/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Exile
  • Pros:  Simple Design, Quality Straps, Lightweight
  • Cons:  Could be a little cheaper, Nice to include a leash,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   Well there is no such thing as a perfect 5 star binding in my opinion, so this is up there at the top. A very park specific binding, made from materials that will give you that flex and support ya need for big jumps and fun jibs. Included is the B3 gell in the heel which will make landings even easier and riding more comfortable. I definitely recommend these to any park rider looking for a solid set of bindings.
