Rome Folsom-the next best thing to nailing your feet t your binding.
4 5

The Rome Folsom does what most boots claim to do, except actually does it-and that is keep your heels from lifting. The liner in these things seems overbuilt around the ankle area that it is actually kind of hard to get into them. And that is really awesome for anyone who has narrow heels and ankles, because you don't want a boot you can just slide into or it will feel like a slipper on the hill.

With all the control the Folsom gives you, it is definitely a boot for the guy who likes to go fast, hit big features and rack up a lot of days. But if you like to hit rails and butter around, it does that comfortably too. If I had to compare the flex to other boots out there, it's right up there with a ThirtyTwo TM2 and maybe a tad softer than the Burton Imperial. Definitely recommend it for the well-rounded rider who demands support.

The Snark from VonZipper is not only stylish and bold but really comfortable for the amount of coverage they offer. Especially the bridge area, you don't even notice whereas similar shapes from other brands tend to cause pressure and leave red marks on your face after wearing them for fifteen minutes. I have a dark green chrome lens and the chrome is so dark that nobody can look in. On the durability front, the hinges never loosen and I have dropped them plenty of times with no breakage or chipping. I would recommend the Snark for any snowboard, skate, or surf types who want a casual sunglass they can occasionally get active in.

VonZipper Fishbowl Goggle Review
5 5

I'm way passionate about these goggles. Once you wear these you will never go back to any other oversized goggle. I trust VZ's optics and fog-free construction and these don't disappoint. I don't always wear a helmet but they fit with my Pro-Tec just fine. If you always wear a helmet, maybe look at the El Kabong from VonZipper too as it is a little bit smaller. The frame around the lens is thin and you can never see it and they are definitely lightweight. Another bonus is how opaque the chrome lens is, if you hate people seeing your eyes through the lens, these are for you.

This is a rad goggle for anyone looking for a large but not too large spherical lens. It is smaller than something like the Fishbowl but just a tad larger than the Feenom and that really makes it more helmet compatible. The lens is all too easy to swap out (you can leave your gloves on even) and the minimal frame design makes it so you can see everything in front of you in all directions without ever seeing the frame. They are virtually fog free and wear light on your face.

Fit: lower to medium rise with a waist that tends to run smaller than other pants I wear from Matix, Volcom, and Levi's. They are more slim than they are straight, so if you wear puffy shoes and floppy boxer shorts these are a no-go. The inseam is perfect for me (I am 6'1", 180lb, and have a 34" natural waist). I bought the 34 waist and it fits a little snug so I just wear a shoelace belt to keep things comfortable. I could have have bought the 36 waist and they might be more comfortable on the waist but still would appear slim throughout.

The stretch is what really makes the LRG Slim Straight Chino Pant the awesome pant it is, especially for skating.

I also love that I can wear these anywhere, usually work and just hanging out—and they always seem to fit in doing both.

I've had some the boxer briefs from Saxx and really liked them. The Ultra Long John is perfect minus one problem—the rise is too low in my opinion. I would like to have it come up further on my waist as it ends to not be as secure as some baselayers that do have a higher rise. The material is sick though, it is super-light and VERY breathable. The pouch for you junk is really what makes me overlook everything and keep wearing these every time I ride. I am 6'1", 180 lb, and have a 34" natural waist and bought the medium—and I can definitely say that large would have been too big. I wear the Saxx Ultra Long John for snowboarding and cold--weather running (layered under shorts).

From riding, to hiking, to sitting in an office chair for eight hours, the Saxx 24-Seven Boxer Brief remains comfortable all day long. If you like Boxer briefs, you will like these. If you hate boxer briefs, you will also like these. The hem doesn't ride up on you, you feel the support but never with feeling restricted. On laundry day, they are the first undies I wear—no matter what I'm doing. It is all about the pouch-buy them and you will know what I am talking about.
