Usually Brighton in the winter cause it's cheap and easy access O.B. and the summers I'm kinda where ever, usually the mountains.

These are pretty nice and easy to install. once they are on and tightened down they don't move. They were a little difficult to get the lock rings on the grip but a good whack on the table or something gets the job done. As for comfort when riding they have plenty of grip and you don't have to worry about your hands slipping off. I would get another pair in the future.

The words of my sister. This jacket is amazing!! Its super light-weight and completely water proof. The breathable material allows you to transition easily from the outside to the inside without the warm, muggy feeling. The jacket is not insulated, but mine (a size M) has room to add layers beneath. It also only reaches the top of the hips, which doesn't bother me, but if your looking for a bit more coverage, you might like something else. Overall, great jacket, highly highly recommended.

So when you get these skis in there intended environment, that being powder or anything soft and slarvable they are amazing! They also handle the groomers quite well. In the pow pow these things just play and have a good time. If you want to go big GS turns you can, if you want trees and lots of turns you can do that too. If you want to through them sideways into a McConkey turn and just keep on rippin' they do that too. They also make landings in big snow amazingling soft. So as long as the snow stays soft these skis are amazing, when it starts to get hard you can survive but sreiously, your only buying these for one purpose. For the powder of any type these skis do it all and make it alot of fun.

Well, I finally got to try these the other day and they were very nice. The first thing I noticed when I got these was how light they were. It's nice not feeling weighed down by your boots. They're very comfortable too and not too stiff. The older Boa system had a tendancy to press too much on the top of my foot and leave me aching by the end of the day, but the newer Boa Focus set up allows for better fit and comfort all around, and I never felt any discomfort. It's a great boot.

This is a solid board! The flatline tech makes it a much smoother, and faster ride than a normal camber would. Turning with the slayblade was very easy and comfortable. I never felt like I had to put much effort into. The board also floats nicely in the powder and the Harshmellow under foot adds a little more cushion for the hard and/or choppy stuff. I don't do a lot of freestyle, but I'd definately recommend this board to anyone looking for a good all mountain board.

Out of all the tents I tried this last year this one was my favorite. Not only is it super simple to set up the first time but once it's up there is plenty'o room with the more vertical sidewalls and tall enough to sit up in without feeling confined. (I' am 6'1") The rain fly once attached is nice and taught and gives excellent coverage and airflow. The cross bar was a little hard to get into the rain fly but once we undid the center hook so we could flex the pole in another direction it went in no problem. Getting in and out of the tent was nice too I thought compared to some other tents out there. This tent just felt solid for as light as it is also and I would not hesitate to take this tent out in anything.

James McCalvywrote a question about on November 19, 2009

So I have this question posted below on Dash's review and then decided to throw it up here also. I have the 186's and will be mounting the Barons on them and I' am trying to figure out where I want to mount them, currently thinking about +1 which seems to be the consensus on TGR's forum for all around performance with some switch riding. However I have also heard +2 from Ingrid below so I'am just throwing this out cause I want a good slashy/playful ski that will also charge and slay the pow. I' am asking for too much? let me know what ya think. Thanks

These gloves are great for just about any kind of riding you want to do. I haven't noticed any hot spots on the inside of these gloves and all though your hands will still get sweaty on hot days they also seem to vent well in the fingers. I thought the fit was good and the comfort was also good. They seem to be holding up well so far but I have only used them 4-5 times. I also haven't been beating my hands up on branches and stuff to know how well the rubber knuckle protectors work but they look pretty cool, kinda like TRON gloves. So for the price I think these are a pretty cool all around glove and would not hesitate to buy another pair and neither should you.
