Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

i bought both the dc judge and this burton concord. i ended up choosing the DC Judge. The concord was light, it felt like a good boot. Concord does not have the BOA focus that the judge has. The concord feels true to its size, all around front to back. stiffness felt good, not too too tight not too loose. One thing on the Concord that caused me to return it was the fit across the throat (top mid section) of the foot wasnt comfortable for me. overall it was a difficult choice between these two boots.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I ride the whole mountain, groomers and moguls. this boot has been pretty good. ive got about 10 days on it. The boot is stiff but not too stiff. feels just about right. slight forward lean but not too aggressive. my only complaints with this boot are two small things... 1) the boot does run a little small, im an 11.5 and i had to order a size 12. 2) the toe box area on this boot is a hair roomier than i would have wanted but its not bad. the boot seems like it will hold up well so far., esp the material they used around the toe box seems super strong. its been comfortable. I also purchased the Burton Concord, the toe box on the concord was a little more snug and true to size but i felt like the Judge was the more comfortable, more secure boot. i felt like the judge locked in my heel better than the concord.

Fit: True to size

I've used this mask for a few years / seasons. What's nice about it is that its roomy enough that it does not allow your breath to fog your goggles unlike cover that's tight fitting. Like the other review, I did find that condensation will escape and freeze making the mask like cardboard if it's super cold out. There is a fix for this... Wash this mask in techwash. Once it's water proofed, the condensation will stay on the inside of the mask where it's warm and won't escape and freeze on the outside. I like this mask because even when it's tucked under goggles it doesn't funnel moisture up and into your lens. It's more baggy, so ur breath goes out and away. Its warm, but does leave the back of your neck exposed. I use this cover in conjunction w an full skin head cover from under armor, so neck stays warm. This mask is warm and comfortable. I wish they made it w just an extra inch or so of stretch to give it a hair more room to pull on.

I upgraded to the M2 from the M1. I have found the M2 to be far less prone to the fogging I experienced w the M1. The frameless design is awesome. The viewing area is vast. The goggle is not too big, and it's not small. It's JUST RIGHT. I've taken some pretty gnarly spills w them and they are secure as any other goggle. Lens changing is stupid fast and easy. They did a fantastic job w this goggle. Most impressed w how clear they stay on moist powder days. These were conditions I struggled w previously w the M1... The lenses offered by anon are great as well. I'm very happy w these. I use these goggles w smith vantage helmet they are a perfect match, No gap.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this helmet after trying it on locally. I felt like it had a better fit than others. When I took it out for the day, I found that even though it fit properly, it would ride up off the top of my head slightly. The fit w the anon M2 goggles was mediocre at best. The vents cannot be closed so it was a cold helmet. The goggle strap retaining clip does not clamp tight enough so ur strap can slip right out. It's profile is a little bulbous... It is light, but it lacks a good fit. And lacks features.

I went through two helmets before discovering the Vantage. This helmet is AWESOME. I had an older mutiny, then bought the anon Halo. I used the helo for a day and was miserable w it. The vantage pairs perfectly w Anon M2 goggles. Zero gap. Zero air leaks. The vented brim is brilliant. I feel like this keeps the airflow moving keeping it from not trapping vapor. I used this on high moisture powder days and had no fogging. The Helmet was very warm in very cold vt temps 1-5 degrees w vents shut. Its very light. It's fit is lower profile than the anon helmets so your head doesn't look like a bulb. Goggle strap secure and routing is perfect. You can tell a lot of thought went into this helmet. It's worth it's price.

One thing could use improvement. The gromit for the exit of the audio wire is right under a strap.

Lenses are fantastic, Technology is out of this world, Interface is truly amazing. but the visibility OUT of these goggles is downright dangerous. They sit significantly farther OFF of your face, forward, and the components on the either side of the goggle itself restrict your peripheral vision. There is restricted visibility also, up and DOWN while looking ahead. Using these on a busy mountain, resort, or trail is very risky, esp for snowboarders who already have to over come blind spots. Its sort of like looking forward through a shoebox. very disappointing, because these would have been awesome, they would have been my last goggle.

I feel its much safer to use a regular wide view goggle with a good GPS strapped to your arm or pack that you can glance at. The HUD in the goggles is not restricting, its the goggle conforming to accept the hardware that makes the field of vision so closed in. total bummer :( hopefully in the near future this will be sorted out, and i can buy the next generation.
