I love to snowboard and I love snowboarding gear. Sometimes I'm not sure which I love more...hmmm.

I love these. In fact I could PROBABLY live in them. I'm 5 foot 7 in, 125 lbs and ordered the SMALLs which fit perfectly. One important factor to keep in mind is that you should NOT dry these in the dryer. They will got tons of little lint balls -- not so cute! if you hang dry them, they retain their shape but don't get the little lint balls that are oh so annoying. I definitely still recommend getting these.

This board is excellent for all mountain riding, however when it comes to riding in the park, it is way too stiff to really grab rails. The directional shape also makes riding switch far more difficult. It's great in powder, though. The board is also pretty difficult to butter because of how stiff it is. If you're a girl that likes to play, I would recommend finding a softer board. =)

I am 5'7", 125 lbs. I usually wear a size small-medium in all tops. I got the medium in this top. It fit great through the arms and body but it was too short for my torso. It is warm, so I kept it, but have to have a base layer pant to go with this top that comes up much higher just so it doesn't come untucked when I am snowboarding. The shirt hits at the top of the hip rather than coming down at all. A fitting note: this shirt is supposed to hug your skin because that is what will allow it to wick moisture...not always the most flattering fit but it is what it is to get the job done! After maybe 10 washes, the inside of the shirt started to "pill", but it hasn't seemingly affected performance. I personally feel there are less expensive shirts out there that do the same job just as well.

This pack is very well made and seems like it will hold up to quite a bit of abuse. I have the black paris color and its mucho fun. When all strapped up properly it puts minimal stress on your back just like it should, even with a board and gear all piled in it. The hydration sleeve is also a huge plus =) Overall you can't go wrong with this pack.

I have these pants in the red and in the green stripe. They are GREAT. They genuinely keep you dry, even in the sloppy spring conditions, and are actually LONG enough ( I have a problem with snowboarding pants being far shorter than I would like ). I'm 5'7", 125 lbs, usually a size 4/6 in jeans and got MEDIUMS. I actually would have been fine with a small but I like to wear my pants a little loose when I board. I definitely would recommend these. They are worth the $$ and will make you oh-so-happy. =)

I can't stress enough that you should go with your NORMAL shoe size...whatever you'd wear for tennis shoes (not heels). They will be snug, uncomfortable, and will probably make you want to cry if you hit up the hill the first day without having worn the boots around your apartment/house to break them in, and will still be very snug the first few days you ride them. HOWEVER, once they "pack out", the boots become like toasty little yummy foot huggers that hold you to your board in the most responsive way possible. You are going to have to suffer through the first few days but if you get a size that is comfortable from the get go, they will also pack out and be HUGE. I have two pairs of these boots and absolutely adore them. I have fairly normal feet but long toes and my toes never feel smooshed. Plenty of toe room once they pack out :)
