Yes this does come with a case and harness
I have flown with this bag before and it works ok. There isn't any padding, so if you are doing a lot of travel I would suggest stepping it up to a padded bag. I just added some clothes to help. I only fly with my board for one trip a year at most so it would be great for that, but if you are doing more I would say to go with a padded option like the Burton Gig Bag, the Dakine Tour, or the Dakine Freestyle.
Unfortunately the Stance lenses will not fit in this frame. The Phenom has a spherical lens whereas the Stance is a cylindrical lens. This and the fact that the frame shape is slightly different will cause issues with fit for sure.
Yes these lenses fit the women's I/OS goggles. The Gold Mirror would be a great option to increase the versatility of your goggles for sure!
I love these so much. I have had the men's Trew bib and having a slimmer more female friendly fit is amazing. The fit is flattering but loose. They are true to size, I have a Large and I am 5'9" 155 lbs. I love the side zips for venting and easy on-off access while winter camping.
Unfortunately there is not. You have to undo the shoulder straps on these bibs to do your business.
There is always a debate with bindings for sure. Don't get me wrong the lock down touring binding part of the Karakorams is mind-blowingly awesome. I love my Burners and for me they have been the best split binding I have used to date. Maybe it is because I am on the lighter end of the spectrum for someone wearing a guys M or L binding. Karakoram's are great, I would just shy away from them if you are going on any extended missions. My buddy makes a living (and lives) in the backcountry and he has broken 2 pairs of Karakorams so far. One was 1st gen so those kinks have been ironed out. The second pair he snapped the highback. Granted this man pushes his gear to the limit, but something like that worries me when you are going on a glacier mission or are winter camping for an extended period of time. We stand behind products 100% so there would never be an issue as far as warranty goes but Braden's point about less moving parts is definitely valid. For me personally I like the Voile and Spark approach a little more. My buddy once again rocks the Voile bindings so that is a testament right there for their durability.
I absolutely love this jacket. The Stretch MegaRex fabric is awesome. It has a little bit of stretch to it with a really great waterproof/breathable rating. The Tie-Ger color is awesome. Cannot wait to wear it more this season! I am 5'9" 155 lb and I have the size L. It is loose-fitting but still has a flattering cut.
I have these with the Yakima WB300 Rooftop Ski & Snowboard Carrier and they work great. It is nice to have the extra reassurance that your gear is secure!
It fits 4 boards pretty snugly, the straps grip well to the bars and I can take off/put on the whispbar holders in probably 2-3 minutes, which is nice. I haven't really noticed too much extra noise on the highway which the fairing helps with but my car is kinda loud anyways. The height is also good, doesn't look goofy but gives just enough room for boards to go in upside down without hitting the roof.
I owned the Light Rails from 2 years ago and these are definitely an upgrade. I currently own the Spark R&D Burners but I have ridden the newer version of the Light Rails as well. The biggest upgrade for me is the wider touring bracket and the longer pins. This makes a difference in the changeover from tour to ride mode. I have poor circulation (cold hands) and it makes it a little easier to get the pin fully engaged for ride mode. The other difference seems to be the flex for me. The newer version feels like it has a smoother flex. They are definitely responsive but these just feel more like my everyday binding (Burton Cartel) than the old model did. The straps have also been upgraded as well.
I definitely recommend going with a split-specific binding if you plan to spend a decent amount of time in the backcountry. I personally have the Spark R&D Burners and they are a huge upgrade from my old setup. The Karakoram Split 30 is a phenomenal option as well and eliminates the hassle of dealing with the Voile pins.
The insulation rating means that there are 150 grams of insulation throughout the body of the coat. Comfort ratings depend on each person so everyone tries to stay away from actual temperature ratings. I would say if you are layering underneath, this coat would probably be warm enough down to about 20 or so degrees. This really depends on how warm the person normally is since each person is different.
According to BCA these will fit on a split. They are not specifically made for a split so they might take some finagling at first but they should work.
Yes, this is a youth size 4 and not a toddler size 4.
This one is 2x4 Noelle!
In my opinion the Mammut Pulse and the Mammut Element are the best beacons on the market. After using a friend's Pulse in my first avy class I knew I had to switch from the Tracker. The range, accuracy, ease of use, and multiple burial functionality is top notch. I have the Element myself as I did not really see the need for some of the Pulse features and I love it. The directional arrows and distance readings have always been on point and I have never had any issues. In my mind the Pulse is amazing, but the Element is close behind in functionality with a much smaller price tag.
Depending on what size your Hi-Standard boots are they should fit these. The Contact-Pro's have a wider baseplate for the most part, so unless your boots are on the really large side you should be okay.
I usually say to go with the smaller binding range that you fit within. If you have a fairly low profile boot or one with footprint reduction technology, then definitely go with the M/L. If you have a bulkier boot (like some Vans or DC) I would say it might be best to go with the L/XL but my suggestions would be the M/L.
This jacket does have a longer fit. I would say a medium will give you that slim, longer fit. A large will give you a bit more room for layering but will fit slightly baggier. I am 5'9" 155 and I would go with a large, so I would say a medium should work for you.
