NJnumbers's Bio

I'm all about being lazy and being as anti-jock-yuppie-go-go-go-first-chair-granola-eating-latte -sipping-competitive-idiot as possible.

On a regular day, I prefer waking up at 11, eating some grub, slapping on some baggy clothes and getting to one of the bigger resorts by 12:30.

On a powder day, I prefer waking up at 10, eating some grub, slapping on some baggy clothes and going to a smaller resort by 11:30. (by smaller, i mean those little resorts that have wicked fun terrain, but a fraction the acreage of other resorts, and no i'm not talking about YuppieWood, Snob Valley, or Tracked Out Meadows.

backcountry is too much work. "sidecountry" is ok. Like I said, I'm lazy. I like fun and getting shradtastical, but I don't like it when people sit there and see snowboarding as some sort of competition.

Easy to remove lenses.
The strap on the early versions would come apart easily, but they fixed it in subsequent years. I use a piece of black athletic tape on my older frames and it works great. It has stayed put for years.

The lenses are easy to remove/replace and the goggles really do fit my face.

I'm a dude. I'm not small. These fit me. I love them. I don't care if they're not for men.

Fits well (I wear a beanie underneath). The new Dial a strap they put in as of last year helps with the fit, and when it breaks, you can just rip it out. The new ear flap mechanism is also nice, even though I took them off. The helmet has minimal gap with Anon Solace goggles. Rad! I wear it when i go cycling as well in the summer time as well.

For discontinuing the Serow in North America.

The only other Vibram soled boots are the Driver X and SLX. This is an outrage.

I bought my Serows 2 sizes smaller than my normal boot size and after they packed out, I loved them. If I had to buy another pair, I'd get them 1.5 sizes too small instead. Perfect flex, great outsole, BOMBER leather that still looks new after 70 days (super duper Scuff resistant!!!)

Basically the world's best boot. Someone PLEASE beg Jake's goons to reevaluate the Serow for North America.

Previous boots:

Northwave Legend (true to size)
Vans Contra Boa (true to size)
Burton Ion (1 size smaller than normal)
Burton Serow (2 sizes too small)

current boots: SLX (1.5 sizes too small)

Hurt a little bit on day one. Packed out just enough to make only my left foot hurt on day two. Packed out a little more on day 3. Put in J Bars after day 4 and they're perfect now.

Supportive, nicely sized toe box, easy to remove and put back liner (this is KEY)

Velcro is actually better than previous liner system (the orange strap thingie)

Vibram outsoles are always nice.

Not flashy (great for not attracting the attention and questions of idiots from sierrapatioland)

Basically the only boot on the planet that can even come close to Serows in my opinion.

Shame on Burton for not bringing the Serow back this year.
