Any plans to restock APXS Eclipse replacements?
Any plans to restock APXS Eclipse replacements?
Have to be honest -- picked this up because of the free bandana. I've gotta admit, I love the shirt. Fits a slim well, and the gold is bright and flashy, not mustard-dark like I expected. Bought a L. Pick one up.
Picked up the grey in a L -- I love it. The logo pops and the fabric is comfortable. I'm 5'11"; fits great.
Just picked up a set of 10's in the Black/Mid Grey/Herringbone. The sole is a medium grey, and the color scheme on the shoe itself is wicked. Really solid design. Just like every other pair of Chuk's I've owned, 100% satisfied. Buy a pair.
The barely-visible logo is what makes this hoodie; just a very solid, classy design. The hood is light-weight, perfect for urban use, or for use while riding.
I'm 5'11", 145 and the L fits great.
Picked up a set of these in the Rasta color scheme. Honestly, they fit kind of weird, and they're not too terribly comfortable. But the sound quality is decent, and they ride well under a set of goggles. If you're looking for something cheap to wear around, or something simple to take riding, pick up a set. They're not bad.
Picked this, and the Rooney up. Bought this in Grey -- it's actually a little darker than the image shows, more gunmetal than heather. I like it. Great casual beanie, but tried it on the hill once... mega brain-freeze at high speeds. Get this for casual wear.
Good price for this hat. Fits great, has a decent amount of sag -- works even better if you where it riding. Super warm; fits well with a helmet, or a hood. Favorite hat. Pick one up.
I bought a set of the 2010 M9's last year -- I don't love anything more than my bindings.
Can't even tell you how great it is to push off the lift, slide your foot in and lock the backs without even stopping. I love turning around to see all my pals sitting on the ground, or fighting with their straps when I'm just ready to go, and waiting on them.
Their design provides for a little more weight than a traditional strap binding, however, you can counter this by going with a little more expensive model. Both the M11's and the NXT-ATSE's feature aluminum base-plates and siding. Much more durable, and much lighter than their other models. I'm picking up a set of NXT's next week for this exact reason.
As per Chaoz's post: be smart about your purchase. You can obviously tell from the image (when you use your eyes) that the top-strap is not true black. These are high-res images, and easily provide accurate colors. You can tell the strap is a little white-washed.
Closing, these bindings make getting in and starting the run completely effortless; they're quick, innovative and comfortable. Tons of flexibility and response. You'll feel solid, and once more, you'll look solid. Randoms will envy you, and your friends will hate you.
A must buy for any serious rider.
I am 5'11", 140lbs -- I like my jackets to have some room for layering.
How does this jacket hang? Is it pretty long? Recommend M or L?
Buy a newer, cheaper one.
Burton has a pretty universal base-plate layout; you should be able to bolt those on no issue.
No, these are a standard lens, however they still provide for a decent field of view.
Yes, but keep in mind, it's a 5.5/10 on NS's scale...
To give you an idea: in terms of a company like Gnu or Lib, this board would probably be rated as 7 or 8 out of 10. NS is a sturdier, thicker board, takes a little more oomph. But provides a lot more reward.
If you're openly willing to drop $500+ on a board, my opinion is: erase any thought you have of buying a Gnu. I have nothing against them, but for that kind of dough, there is one infinitely better option.
There's absolutely no tail/nose chatter at 55mph+; the RC is perfect, and makes the deepest of the deep absolutely effortless. The durability in NS boards are simply unmatched by Gnu or even Lib, hands down. I'm sure the Rider's Choice will charge something fierce, but you'll be much happier, for much longer if you spend the same amount on a NS, guaranteed.
I am a CO native, so I had to go with the CO print. The mask is comfortable and warm, especially in positive temps.
^^ This specific day was the first I had any issues with it; -10 blue bird day. Worked at about 80% efficiency. Still froze and bunched up with moisture in the material, but when you get to negatives, anything is going to do that.
Overall, 4 out 5 for me. I'd recommend one with a couple of 'buts' in there.
The 162 might be a better fit, but longer doesn't necessarily mean wider. You may have more luck with the wide.
Yeti feet don't like to drag, especially for $450. My suggestion is find one in stores first, figure out what you like, then come back and order it.
Neither. Be a man and get a NS Heritage 161. You'll ride it for three years with no issues, while all your friends snap and break their Capitas.
Hell, even if you're more interested in park, NS Evo. Tellin' you man, you'll be much happier, for much, much longer, hands down.
I'm 5'11", 145 -- the black wax would go great with my setup. However, I'm not a fan of my pants dragging at the heels (hanging TO the heels is fine) but I don't want to go M for shorter length if I'm going to be squeezed into these like Betty Davis, and have them unbutton every time I move.
I purchased a pair of Burton pants in L before for this reason, and they ended up looking like I raided MC Hammer's winter closet.
How do these pants hang? How adjustable/forgivable are they at the waist? Which will be better, M or L?
I don't believe it was directed at DogFunk, more directed at Volcom. I don't care how water-proof or breathable the material is, it's never worth more than four-hundred. No way. Doesn't cost them to that much to design it or make it.
Could say the same about The North Face.
