Fantastic lightweight boot. One of those boots where I can have on all day without a complaint. Perfect stiffness and crossbones feature is great. Only issue, please don't try hiking up the side of a cornice thats been iced over. These boots have almost no traction and falling off the top a cliff is not fun.

this bag has a durable fabric with a rubberized interior. one side bag keeps all your accessories. Curved shoulder strap is much more comfortable. Perfectly sized for all-purpose use. For snowboarding, you can easily fit snowboard boots, socks, helmet, goggles, gloves, pants, jacket all in this one bag.

I'm not sure if bindings can really get any better. Fell in love with these the first time I rode them. Stiff bindings result in super responsive board feel. The Burton channel system really can't be beat. You also get an extra inch (or more) of flex with the EST technology. The finish has a rubbery coating on it which just makes it look that much cooler (at least on the 2012 model).

Fantastic gloves for a stormy, cold, whiteout day. These gloves are sized bigger to account for the included fleece liners. The liners have a silicone gripping on the fingers and palms so you can wear them for park/pipe on a sunshine day. Gloves even have a goggle squeegee for recovering from those occasional faceplants.

This is one of the best reservoirs I've used. Great flow rate and nice durable construction. Just make sure to rinse and dry it out each time. All the people complaining this bladder leaks or is bad should revisit with how to use the bladder correctly. The detachable host has an o-ring on it and it must 'click' in order to guarantee a good seal. If it's icy, thaw the connection first.

nope. these are definitely sunny day park/pipe gloves. super lightweight and minimally waterproof. cuff is short too, so once you get snow inside, its a sad rest of the day. to answer your warm question, these are barely insulated and will not keep your hands warm on a snowy day. go for a goretex glove, ya won't regret it

Mounted these (s18w) on top of Thule tracks (using k450 fit kit) on a 2012 jeep wrangler hard top. Super clean install and crossbar curvature matches the roof perfectly. These are heavy duty and well built bars and quiet as hell for aftermarket standards. looking forward to use these with the yakima big powderhound

Dont cram your boards in the trunk. Carry them the right way with these racks. They mount on almost any factory or aftermarket crossbar. Carries your snow gear effortlessly and they lock so you dont have to worry about them getting stolen when you're away from the car. Just make sure bindings are facing down. They do make a little noise in high speeds, but nothing extremely annoying. The rubber pads do mark the topsheet of your skis/board a little but wipes right off.

These are the beefier standard issue Burton bindings that have been around forever. Flexy and lightweight. Great for learning and park. [Almost] everything is toolless, which is nice. Not the most responsive bindings but gets the job done decently. You will feel the need for an upgrade soon after (or slightly before) your first switch tailslide

Ill like epic and awesome, not like the sickness. get the reference? anyway...
Great minimalistic backpack. The organizer panel is not padded in the 2011-12 version but i believe they are in the 2012-13 (correction??). Theres the main compartment and the fromt compartment, thats it. The water bottle pockets on they side are pretty small and they barely fit a Camelbak better bottle. The skate straps are durable and will last a long time. but the grip tape always tears up the backpack right?

I have the stone (white) version and these are pretty awesome. Its not pure white, instead a very light grey, probably to help hide the dirt. It will inevitably get dirty but thats where the character comes in. Get em!

...and get some Matix Miner Pants. These are guaranteed one of my favorite pair of pants. They are unbelievably durable. I fell skating downhill on a part of really rough blacktop, and skidded across these pants. I thought, for sure, there would be a huge gash. Instead, my skin underneath was torn apart and soaked in blood, but these pants still looked brand new, minus the dust. Shocked! Just don't wash them if you don't need to. They do shrink 1-2 sizes after washing and drying, so size up if you wish. The button fly isn't at all that bad, I actually prefer them over zipper.

These are great boot for the price. I have the 2010 model. Pretty soft boot for park and nailing all those presses. Works well and doesn't break the bank. Soles are durable although the calf area softened up quite a bit. There are some awkward pressure points on the top of your foot which I still haven't figured out exactly why, but they don't bother too much. These fit pretty true to size, so get your shoe size. The standard issue, great for beginner and intermediate riders.

Spent quite alot of days on the hill (~25) last year, with crap conditions, and these kept my hands warm and dry each time. Thanks to the GoreTEX inserts. Zipper closure is actually better than you would think. Velcro will get covered with snow, but the zipper will hold out through slush and pow. I picked these because they had the under cuff style, super sleek if you have wrist gaiters or a jacket thumb loop. Although, these started to get holes on the fingertips by around day 15. Nothing super glue can't fix, but definitely wore out quicker than I'd like. Lasted though the washer/dryer numerous times. Get em if theyre on-sale, and size up a little, they tend to run a little small. Also, if you have the issue of the lining coming out when you pull your hand out, they eventually fix themselves, at least for me it did? Dakine might've revised their 2012-13 line. But I went for the Dakine Titan Short instead, we'll see how that works out this year.
