For the price they are pretty good. They eliminate most outside noise. I use them while I ride, but also while I run. I don't like them much for running. When the cord hits something(like my arm), it makes a thumping noise. They stay in fine until I start to break a sweat, then they fall out. Either invest in a more expensive pair, or pay the same price by going through multiple sets of these. They don't last that long.

These did what they were suppose to. They played music. Was it great sound? Not really. Was the volume control button thought though? Nope. There is no hold button so if anything hits the mute button, off goes the music. Are the ear pads a warm as the original ones? No. This helmet really kept my ears warm, but when I changed the pads out for the singe shots I couldn't keep my ears warm, so I had to wear a cap underneath, which in turn muffled the sound. Sort of defeats the point, don't you think? Yes...But for thirty bucks they are worth buying, even if solely for the fact that you won't have headphones stabbing you under your helmet.

Amazing! I have four pairs, but in different styles. I sport them like they are going out of style. The different color lenses do what they are meant to, rarely fog and are easy to change. However, the first time you take the lens out and put a new one in it takes some maneuvering. The more often you change them the easier it gets. The straps are interchangeable now too(they didn't use to be). Im not sure how I feel about this. I like the option, but when I pull the goggle over my helmet sometimes it comes loose and snaps me in the face. Not fun. This style is perfect for small faces. In the past I always felt that my face was overwhelmed by my goggle. Not anymore.

This is one of the best fitting helmets. I have tried so many, even children's, because I have a small head. This is the only one that fits me properly. There is an adjustable strap in the back of the helmet that rests at the bottom of your head. It lets you tighten or loosen the head space in the hemet, for the perfect head hugging fit. It's light and comfortable as well. Love the vent system, makes it weather versatile. The only downside is that everyone and their mother seems to have it. Seriously, I have seen a lot of parents in this helmet, not to mention my own. Its popularity is only based on the fact that it's such a reliable helmet though. I can't knock it since I feel that it is one of the best helmets out there right now. They just need to release more color combos. So rock it like no one else, and you're golden!

I was so excited to wear these, but they are the worst gloves I have ever put on. Maybe my pair was a dud, but they were not waterproof. I had soggy wet hands. I could literally squeeze the water out like a sponge. The first day I wore them the leather started to wear away from strapping in and had slice marks from carrying my board. After one day? Really? Also, I take my gloves off a lot out of habit. From putting these on and taking them off I got a hole between the micro-fleece and leather within the first hour. They are sort of warm, but not warm enough for 10 degrees (the low end of the recommended use). I threw these away.

This board will have you asking for a seat belt if you ride it the way it is meant to be ridden. It goes fast. If you like speed you will beat everyone down the mountain. It holds an excellent edge on ice. It can cut though any type of crud or death cookie. It's good for big jumps and strong landings. Not that fun for playing in the park. The center cut was just too stiff for me to stay in the park. Every time I pressed, the board pressed back. This board has pop, but is hard to find the sweet spot. It took a little more effort than I would have liked to ollie. I love this board in powder though, it's quite the floater.

This board will add pop to any ollie. What a difference in launch power when you unexpectedly go off a kicker. The Pop Stix ready work! This board is sweet buttery goodness. My go to board for presses, jumps and just switching up my game. Very responsive both in and out of the park. This board can be ridden hard. You can really push this board to go fast despite its softer flex. The slimewalls remove almost all chatter. Except on ice!! This board is fun to bomb around the mountain, but at high speeds it does not hold an edge on ice. That being said, I can't stop riding this board... for now.

Love these! What a difference I felt between my old bindings and the Escapades. The responsiveness of these bindings made the contact between my boots and board effortless. Sweet for fast riding! A little stiff in the park, but awesome none the less. The only downside is the four hole binding mounts. No padding?... Not cool Burton!
