I really really wanted to love this jacket. I was looking for a jacket in this style and my boyfriend bought it for me for Christmas. Upon opening, I was so excited - it was exactly what I was looking for! After trying on the medium though (I'm 5'4" athletic, small-waisted with bigger butt), it made me look super boxy. We quickly ordered a small, but the same thing happened. It was just too boxy. Tightening the strings made it look weird. Well, I guess I'm on the hunt for a new coat :/

I've wanted a splitty for so long and was super stoked to see GNU come out with the amazing B-Pro board in the split. I've been riding the B-Pro 152 for the last 3 years and the split rides just as well for the most part. I can't complain for a second about its performance in pow. It's a bit squirly on hard pack "rollecoaster" exits that come with some of our runs in the Tetons but I think that's just the nature of riding a board that's cut in half :P
Can't say enough good things about this board. Woo hoo!

I think that the 6 cm of difference wont be that big for you, especially if you are an experienced rider. You should only be worried about the larger board if you have trouble swinging your board around as it is. See if you can borrow a friends board that is bigger and see how it feels. The only other company that i know that makes a splitboard is burton, but the smallest they run is a 162...Or you could try Prior or Venture Snowboards. They also make splits.

Just took my Avy I Cert class and got to try out my Ortovox D3. I was amazed at how fast I could find another buried beacon! Took me straight to it. Easy to read. The harness is a bit annoying as you have to have it strapped around you to turn it on, and if you don't want it on, you have to have a strap dangling from your waist. Also, it's hard to get close to the snow unless you adjust the waist strap.
