I can honestly say I wear the Von Zipper Booker's every single day. Even if it's rainy, I have the Booker's ready and waiting to grace my face. They have the best fit and sickest style. I've even slammed on my face snowboarding while wearing these, and the Booker's walked away without a scratch. Do yourself a favor this summer and grab a pair!
The Feenom's were my go-to goggles last year because they have a perfect fit for my medium-sized face and an excellent field of vision, all for a great price. The unique vents actually work really well too, as I've never had an issue with fogging.
The Skylab is essentially the smaller version of the Fishbowl, but once it's on your face and you see the ridiculously big field of vision, you'll barely notice. The Fishbowl definitely has more height, but I thought the peripheral view was about the same. If you have a medium to small face and the Fishbowl is just a little to big for you, the Skylab will be perfect.
I love this goggle. While I still love the view of the Fishbowls and the quick lens changing of the El Kabong's, there's something about a clean, classy, cylindrical goggle that just gets me. It definitely still has a great field of vision and I've never had an issue with fogging, plus it's very helmet compatible. Basically, it's simple, it looks good, and is everything you need for day riding your favorite resort.
With Utah's variable conditions, I love having the convenient quick change system of the El Kabong's. I don't think it is the fastest lens change system in the game, but it seems like the most solid. I've noticed a lot of gaps and fogging from other seamless frames and quick change systems, but Von Zipper's has a great seal and I've never had an issue with fogging.
Besides that, I love the sleek look and field of vision you get. They are not too oversized once on your face, and the clarity and peripheral view is deceivingly huge. For a slim look with an epic view, I'd highly recommend the El Kabong's.
I've always loved the Fishbowls not only because they have THEE best field of vision of any goggle I've ever tried (and I've tried a lot), but they have an incredible fit and look great on your face. I've had issues with fogging from other goggles, but never had a problem with these. I'll be riding one of the sick Frostbyte colorways this year!
The first thing I noticed with the 390s is that the footbeds are redone and look much better. There's softer padding under the heels and toes and more supportive foam throughout, making it super comfortable and damp over choppy conditions.
Even though they are not the 390 Boss straps, they're still really comfortable and grippy, making them responsive yet ride-able all day. I loved the UnderWrap.2 heelcup too, because you can really feel the quick pull when charging groomers and making big turns.
In my opinion it is worth it to get the 390 Bosses for the upgraded straps, canted footbeds, and easier adjustability, but this is still a super solid binding with a lot of bang for your buck.
I've had a ton of friends try these out and love them! From the comfort and grip of the new ankle and toe straps to the power and drive of the Yes I Cant footbeds, the Madison Bosses slay it everywhere. Everything from the highback to the flex was designed specifically for ladies as well, making the Madion's female specific and super sick.
My girlfriend loves these! It has the same UniBody construction as the men's Mob and Mob Bosses, but the binding itself is tailored towards the ladies. The highback offers a lot of support and response down low where you need, and has a smooth, forgiving flex up top to go easy on your calves but still add some leverage for the hard heel side turns. She also loved how smooth they ride with the SubBase V-Pad for dampening in chundery conditions. She rides her Runways everywhere and kills it!
I have been riding the Rome 390 bindings for years, and one of my favorite things about the company is that they trickle down all the technology as their products progress. Basically, this is the 390 started out on, but now it's the same great binding for cheaper.
The UnderWrap heel hoop is one of the best features you can have on binding. Having the plastic base lets the Arsenal flex smoothly on your board, while the aluminum chassis gives you a ton of power and response while pulling on the plastic base.
The Arsenal doesn't sacrifice dampening either with the cushy footbed and SubBase Pad to really cut out the chatter and save your legs for all day riding.
I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a solid, responsive, and comfortable all-mountain binding without breaking the bank.
This is probably the most versatile park binding I've ever ridden. I'm not usually down with all plastic bindings, but the UniBody construction transfers energy really well, making them way more responsive than you'd think a soft flexing binding would be.
I also used the Cant In The Back highback canting with the 3.5 degree Yes I Cant footbed, and together they added a ton of leverage and power underfoot.
Finally, the new Boss toe and ankle straps are incredible. You can't feel them at all, meaning there's no unwanted pressure on your foot, but they hold your feet rock steady while still giving you plenty of tweak-ability.
Basically, I'd highly recommend these to anyone who likes a softer binding but still plans on charging all over the mountain.
This board goes fast! It was basically designed to hard charge down groomers at lightning speed, and that's exactly what it does. I've ridden this lightweight shred stick in powder too, and it definitely held its own.
I love traditional camber. It's super stable, tons of pop, and rips turns and groomers. I personally love the Agent Rocker, but this camber counterpart is great if you're sending it off huge jumps or want an even more stable, smooth ride.
The Agent Rocker is seriously the best all-mountain board I have ridden. MtnPop is the perfect combo of stability, float, and pop. It's only a little bit setback, so its still great in the park. Even on the icy days, you can feel the Quick Rip sidecut dig in, making it very stable. It was crazy how much I noticed the HotRods too. Sometimes you lose some ollie power with reverse camber boards, but the HotRods make up for it and then some.
I'm a huge fan of Rome's No Hang-Up's Pop camber, because I love the stability and pop of camber underfoot, but the 3D profiling in the nose and tail makes the Brigade super quick edge-to-edge with tons of float in the powder. I've ridden it in pretty much every condition and it excelled. It's stable off jumps, easy to press on rails, floats in powder, and it super stable on groomers and through icy conditions. It is slightly set back, so it's best for all-mountain riding but I loved it everywhere.
I love this board because I'm a huge fan of the Agent, and the Reverb is basically the baby brother of the Agent. I love how stable the traditional camber is, plus there's loads of pop.
I've ridden it in some less-than-good conditions, and the impact plates made it ride super smooth. It has a great mid-flex profile too, so I'd recommend the Reverb to anyone looking for an all-mountain board that still kills it in the park.
The Targas are the best all-mountain powder bindings I have ridden in a long time! The stiffer flex is super responsive and the canted footbeds add a ton of power and drive when ripping powder or charging groomers. I love the AntiShock highback too because every time I've had a sketchy cliff landing they absorb a lot of impact.
I love these bindings. The straps are super comfortable and you can really feel the canted footbeds when you ollie, turn, or ride over chunder. The combo of the aluminum chassis and plastic footbed makes the 390s super responsive but they have a great flex when they're on the board. I ride them in the park and powder and they kill it!
I love the No Hang-Ups Pop camber! It's got all the pop and stability of tradtional camber with float and playfulness of a reverse camber board. It's the best all-mountain board I've ridden in a long time and I love how it still floats great in powder.
