Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large



The Dipstick is a great sport-wrap shade for medium to large faces. It is a larger frame, but feels really light on my face because of the rubber nose pieces and rubber temple tips. These are my go-to shades for long drives or hiking. If you have a medium sized face check out the Speedtuck from VZ. They are a smaller version of the Dipstick.

Fit: True to size

I love these shades. They fit about the same as the Elmore and Lesmore, but have a great vintage look to them. I have a medium sized head and normally wear the VZ Lesmore. I've been wearing them for the last 3 weeks and won't go back to any other shades.

I've ridden the 159 and 163 Mtn Div boards and all I can say is I can't wait to get back on these boards. I took the 163 to Canada last year and rode some of the deepest snow of my life. I've never had a board that could ride small when you needed to make tight turns, yet run long in wide open situations. This thing also has tons of landing gear. The Turbo Rods in the tail snap you out of turns and stand you up on landings.
This isn't just a pow board. The camber profile allows you to rip all over the mountain.

Let me start by saying that I was in love with my old Mod Rocker, and didn't think it could be any better. But I am the first to admit, that I was wrong. The mad scientists at Rome somehow made my favorite board of all time, even better. I started riding this newly shaped Mod Rocker back in January and never looked back. The new shape with a longer flat zone just felt so right in all conditions. No joke. Hardpack- Killed it. Powder- effortless float. Jumps- tons of landing gear. I'll be the first to admit that I am not blessed with the gift of pop, but these new Turbo Rods had my back in a big way. I can't say enough about this new Mod Rocker other than it is the best all around snowboard I've ever ridden...again.

I wanted a glove with easy access so I could shoot photos while on the mountain...these are awesome. I was a little skeptical at first as they aren't really that thick, but they keep my hands warm and dry even in frigid conditions. I love these things.

After being frustrated with tech laces and cables etc. I wanted to go back to an all mountain lace boot. I tried on a bunch of boots and found the Libertine fit my needs perfectly. I have a size 12 foot and worked my way into a size 11 Libertine. It was tight at first, but at the end of the 2nd day riding I was living in comfort. I have about 20 days on them now and they are the most comfortable boots I've ever owned and they are holding up great.
