Girly got me the gunship for my birthday. Its my new go-to watch. I get all kinds of compliments and questions from people. This watch is Awesome. I uploaded a pic of the rubber player and my original for comparison. To be accurate, I'm 6'1" and 250 with some decent sized arms.

Same problem, here. but I got on nixons site and found the contact number and just asked for service and told the dude what I needed and 8 days later three extra links arrived in the mail! Nixons customer service is awesome

I've been riding Autos (and most recently the Auto Evers) for going on 3 years now. At first I was skeptical because the first series kept breaking. Honestly though, when they worked- they worked awesome! After getting mine back from the recall, I've had no issues at all with them. As far as these compared to the K2 cinches- the cinches are cool too- one of my favorite ridin buds rocks em and swears by em...However, when it comes to malfunctions and the fact that they tear up boots the K2 auto wins hands down. The Auto is lighter by 30%, less parts to break, and a hell of a lot easier to get in and out of in deep powder- bottom line, get em- if youre disappointed you can punch me in the face!

The 150 is perfect for someone your size. However, you might be limited by the stance options as far as how wide you go- but I doubt it. my brother is the same size and rides a 147 and he just kills it in the park and has no problem keeping up with me on the groomers but does have a bit of a problem in powder.

So lets see, I demolished two pairs and lost one... My current pair has lasted me about a year with no problems. The look is classic, and for all you guys out there with the perfectly round somewhat large face, these are your shades. Theyre a pretty cool timeless OG style that throws a little chic in with a little badass and just seems to work.

Ridden the CHB's for years now and I gotta say that the base on these are primo. It seems like mervin kicks it up a notch every year constantly innovating (and getting ripped off by other companies) and bringin new shi# to the table. The Carbon High Beams are a great all around board with plenty of pop and a fast as hell base. Magna traction does what its suppose to do, soften up your edges with a file (detune) before you take this bad boy out otherwise its a little too grippy in the turns.

I got these late last season hoping for the end-all do-it-all binding that its hyped up as...Honestly, theyre well built and packed with techy features and very plush straps. I rode em about 6 times in different conditions and all I could really think of is I wish I could get em tighter- They just feel kinda sloppy, I like my bindings pretty stiff and these just felt loose and soft. Thats partially due to the gel cushioning of the footbed and the baseplate i think but i'll stick with my K2 autos and maybe rock these on my spare.

i have 2 pair of these (white and Crocodile Dundees) I gotta say they are so comfy. the foam feels like an angel kissin your face! Theyre a little big but then again so is my dome. performance wise, these are way high in my rotation (very similar to the Dragon Mace) I love the removable top vent mesh on top of the gogle instead of cheap flimsy foam. changing lenses is a snap too, very simple. My only gripe is that its impossible to find lenses in stores and theyre spendy as hell. And online, its almost impossible to tell what youre getting. other than that, very cool goggs.

Holy crap these things are warm! I wore em three times last season in sub 20 degree weather and i was hot- i was praying for some snow down the butt crack. So I took the liner out and they were all good. Loe the fit, i got the denim ones and couldnt be happier. Like i said, if youre someone who wants to be warm and toasty all the time get these- highly recommend for cold temperatures

I have the 07-08 models they broke...alot. After replacing replacing them outright twice. K2 finally issued a recall which just involved swapping out the cable for one with a beefier anchor at the toe strap end, and they havent broke since. I can honestly tell you that these (even when they were breaking) are the best bindings ive owned in my 18 years on a board. Seriously- get these, or the auto evers you wont be disappointed.

What?? Dude if youre a paraplegic, how do you snowboard? You do realize that the boots are for snow boarding right? if youre looking for a shoe with BOA technology I believe The North Face makes a shoe with the tech youre looking for.

i'll be the first to admit that I've broken 3 sets of these. However, when they do work, these are the best bindings I've ever ridden! I got the recalled cables and havent had any problems since. The new cable system is way stronger. Get these bindings and you wont be disappointed!
