I live in Vermont and use these as everyday winter boots. They are great for a wide range of situations from active snow play (e.g., hikes with or without snowshoes, snow shoveling) to sitting or standing around in the cold (e.g., sitting on my tractor). I've worn these in -10 to 20 degree range (F) for extended periods and my feet stay toasty without burning up. I originally bought the Baffin Control Max, and they were way too warm for my needs. The Toundra are also light weight and ideal for snowshoeing, etc. compared to a bulkier boot like the Control Max. I wear a men's size 10.5 sneaker and the 11 fits perfect. Nice work Salomon!

I weigh 165 lbs. I ride 9/10 days in VT and NH, which means I'm mostly riding tight, thwacky tree lines. I'm wondering if I could size all the way down to the 152cm. I'd really love to have a board that is nimble in the trees AND floats well. I'm sure the 156 would be sweet, but wonder if the 152 would still float well for me and be even more nimble.

I bought the Men's version of this pack looking for a smaller winter pack option for my kids that included a snowboard carry set-up. The packs are pretty nice and seem well-built. Unfortunately, the straps are not even long enough to attach a kids' snowboard (120cm Burton Custom Smalls) let alone an adult board, as advertised. Burton is investigating a fix, which is great, but be forewarned that these packs are set up for skate carry, not snowboard carry. :(

How baggy a pair of pants seem to you is a real personal thing and popular opinions/styles seem to swing like pendulum on this issue. Judge the bagginess of this pant by the photos, which are accurate representations. Personally, I think the bagginess of the backbowl is just about right. I bought a pair this week and they look like a great design for backcountry or sidecountry exploits. Beacon specific pocket, highly breathable material, well-placed thigh vents, articulated knee, strategically placed reinforcements, etc. However, I may be returning my pair because the Men's mediums have a longer inseam and slimmer waistline than I expected. I measured the inseam and it is 33.5 inches. Waist is about 32-33". The inseam is at least an inch longer than what I expected. I am 5'9" and wishing they made a short version!
