This is a super fun, buttery board that still has that nitro drive. I'm kind of a big dude, about 180, and ride the 157 in everything: pow, park, jib runs. I'm over the quiver and this is a fun, do-it-all board.

Good, simple heart rate monitor. The strap needs to be more wet than I remember, but maybe that's because it's new. I seem to remember my old Polar having difficulty finding my heartrate when new, but after a few months it was great.
It's a little difficult to take off and put on, but I imagine it'll loosen up a bit as it gets older.

Sturdy shoe, fly style. A bit more low-profile than the Manteca I. Sizing is a bit weird, though, but seems to be the case for all DCs. I usually wear a 10.5 in all other skate shoes. 10.5 in these are a bit snug, and the 11 is too big. I went with the 10.5, and while they're a bit tight for kicking it, I really like the snugness for skateboarding; makes the shoe feel less sloppy. And we all buy skate shoes to skate in, right, so yeah.

I was looking for a goggle lens to wear in the spring, when things are super bright in Utah. My eyes are pretty wrecked and I have a lot of problems with glare, and the Gold Lite lenses weren't cutting it. So I picked up the Blue Mirror. All in all I'm pretty stoked on them. My eyes can relax on south-facing slopes in bright sun and I can now see a lot of the small details I was losing before. They even worked pretty well in the shade and when the sun was obscured by partly cloudy skies. Stoked!

Bought the Manual as a do-anything watch for the office, mountains, and water. So far it's held up really well to office use and snowboarding. Has gone through a few spring-like days in park gloves and storm days with a full gauntlet, and is running strong and blemish-free even after a couple gnarly crashes. The silver face, though super stylish, was kind of hard to read so I traded it for the white face.

I really dug the High Intensity Blue lens on these goggles, but the fit didn't work out for me. By far the best lens I've ever used in flat light, and I've used Smith Gold Lite, RC36, Clear, and Scott Yellow from a few years ago. Only thing I didn't like about them was the fit. Never really closed around my nose. But I've got kind of a flat face, so they may work for you. Goggles don't fit a helmet -- you'll need to spring for the helmet strap, which I don't think works that well.

I'm really happy with the Giro.9 MX. It's lighter than my old lid, so in comparison feels like I'm wearing nothing at all (cue Ned Flanders vision). It's also warm. Only drawback is the shim thing on the back of the helmet snaps loose sometimes, but it's only one snap and is a minor issue.
