Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Very nice addition to the camera, BUT the battery life is really short. While I can change the battery of my camera on the go and shoot during the whole day if needed, no chance of charging your Remote on the slopes. A considerable drawback for otherwise nice device.

The switch for the ratchet is smooth and it is not easy to hit the right position with the first try.

Also, when the screw is already loose you can neither use the rathchet (it is normal) nor reach the ratchet itself with fingers (which is uncomfortable).

Other devices, like Burton Bullet are much better in this sence.

Finally, I cannot imagine why would you need so many different drivers setuping your snowboard?

tail design flaws, no warranty
1 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Right out of the packaging I found the tail aluminum insert already disbonded. Issue very similar to one experienced by Daniel Ochoa in other review. Seems to be a design flaw!

The Jones snowboard does not provide you with anything that could be actually called a "Manufacturer Warranty". If you give/sell your two days (month, whatever) old board to a friend of yours he will have neither BC "guaranteed return", nor the Jones' warranty. Absolutely outrageous!!!

The board rides interesting, but I have no wish to give any detailed review provided such a "very nice" customer service of the Jones.

just didn't open
1 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

the first time I used it didn't open... just didn't open... I would suspect myself in forgetting the combination if there were none of similar complaints on the internet.
Thanks God, I was able to "unchain"my board.
and I cannot return it now since I had to left it on the resort (((((

cosmetic issues before being used
3 5

I didn't use the bindings yet, so I will keep the review updated. But even before being installed on the board they have already two cosmetic issues - the paint which partial got off just being in the box, and the union onlay which just fell off....

Hope that the riding quality will not be similar to this.

comfortabe, but toe collapsed and crease
3 5

Very comfortable boots, reliable and really speed lace system, warm (when not wet, see below) and responsive (when now broken).

Two quite important issues (and their consequences) force me to put 3 stars and think of putting 2....

1. on the first week of ride the structure of the outer boot got creased at the toe area, see the picture. It happened both to mine Imperials, and to ones of a friend of mine. A similar situation was also reported in an other review. So, the boot lost a part of its stiffnes before one weeks of ridding!!!

2. After about three weeks on the mountain the toe of my right boot collapsed exactly as descrided in another review here. The left one is ok, but the rigth one is completely out of order!


As a minor issue (probably connected to the previous ones) I must say that the boots get SO EASILY wet on a warm day, that after just two or three hours on the slopes it is not possibe to ride them anymore - you feel yourself like beiing in a pool rather then a slope =((

I also agree with an earlier remark regarding the boot having ALOT of room in the toe box, both side to side and up and down. It irritates me a lot, but seems to have no practical effect =)


Only hope that theese issues are resolved in 2013 year model.

I love the bag almost from every point of view.... very comfortable, lots of pockets and so.... BUT

but mine wide board DOES NOT properly fit into the vertical carry of the bag.... what an epic fail!

UPDATE
I tried more wide boards into my bag, and also tried other bags as well, so I have to retract my 3-star review, and replace it with 4 star....

the 4 star is just because you must be cautious buying this bag - it is big meaning relatively heavy, so it is not always the best option while skiing/snowboarding..
