Bought the jacket for my wife and will be sending it back. As she put it "it has a very fat fit". The video posted is nice and I wish it was up when we made the purchase. The pictures made it hard to see that the sides were white, which really doesn't look that great and it is not nearly as pink in person. She did like the snow guard as it was very tight and stayed below the butt. One other HUGE bummer was that it does NOT have wrist gaiters as stated on the description.

So while the material is great for the price it does leave a few things to be desired in fit and features.

What really matters is the video quality. The camera does a great job in recording video. All the modes are useful and work as stated. The record button is pretty fantastic. It just slides forward which is very nice but you have to be careful not to pop the back cover off when pushing the switch. It works great while skiing/snowboarding with gloves on. I built up a little duct tape nub on the rec button to make the operation easier with gloves on.

Vibration issues are very, very bad with the goggle mount on a typical snowboard/ski helmet. I went ahead and duct taped the mount and my strap to my helmet and it resolves the issue (but you can't take off your goggles).

Battery life is pretty good and extra batteries are cheap. Unfortunately you only can recharge them one at a time which is a pain when both are used up and need to be ready for the next day. I find that while on the slopes I get about 3 hours of record time with the camera being on the whole time and recording on the runs down, stop recording while riding the lift. With 2 batteries you can make it through a typical day on the slopes.

The Easy Edit software is a joke and is horrible. You have to have it installed to make any changes to the settings on the camera and to update the firmware. Changing the settings is pretty easy but very, very, very inconvenient. If you have a laptop it is possible to have that with you in your car but it really doesn't help with on the fly changes. If you are out and it goes from sunny to cloudy to twilight there is no way to changes the settings for all the conditions and that can result in some poor quality video. As far as editing actual video it is best to pic up Adobe Premiere Elements or Ulead or Sony Vegas.

It is a very useful camera and it makes for some great POV footage or follow cam footage. Some things could be better but it is good for the price.

I bought it for my wife in the M size and it is not at all shaped like a womens body. It was really baggy and looked very bad. It did not fit under a shell jacket very well for her. On the plus side it fits me great and I really like it and it fits under my jackets really well. And for $17 I will not complain to much.

I would mount core center. You would really have no reason to put them forward at all. I have mine at core center and they are great in pow, on groomers, ice, I used them in a race league last year for fun. You can still take them in the park for a few jumps and rails, riding switch is still easy on them. Core Center in my opinion.I think what he meant to say is right on the recommended line from the factory. cord center would ski horribly all mountain. I think the recommended mounting point is 5 or 7 cm back and is the way to goI agre with Ty. 2008-09 ARV midsole mark factory seting is -7cm from true center as an all mtn backcountry ski.(Measure tip to tail and divide by 2 to get true center - 185 / 2 = 92.5cm) do not go more than -5 the ski will be good for swicth and park but your backcountry ride may suffer.... Core center is typically where the recommended line is at. That is always the terminology that has been used in the ski shops I have worked at. Hence why I said core center. When you say cord center you must be inferring true center? which would indeed be very bad for all mountain. I have have mine at core center (-7 cm) as stated above.

It is a nice rack and does the job of holding two bikes like it says. I have been having problems with the clips at the top sliding back in forth while driving with the bikes on it (I fixed it buy using rubber bands as gaskets to stop the movement). If you have a small bike, like my wife has, it will be a tight fit on the rack. I find that the zip stick is very useful in keeping the bikes from swaying around. Bottom line is it works good for the price but there are better ones out there.

This is truly a great board for anyone who rips the mountain. Don't listen to the above reviews. It is a twin, not a true twin though. It is not only a beginner board but also an advanced rider board. It is my everyday board and I use it on all terrain. From park to pow to chutes and steeps. If you are looking for a board that is great everywhere and can do everything this is a board for you.
