Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was stoked to get these gloves from Armada, and thanks for them Armada. But unfortunately only after about a months use they are already coming apart at the seams. Apart from that they kept my hands warm when temps got into the teens, and the leather was super supple. Also the leash, just an amazing feature. Wanted to give these gloves 5 stars after wearing them the first few times, but just can't with them breaking down so fast.

These goggles are not designed to be used with glasses. The "x" in IO/x stands for extra large, as the "s" in IO/s stands for small. These are the largest goggles for the IO series. And glasses would probably fit underneath them, just a good chance of fogging up even with Smith's Vaporator ventilation system. You will want to check out the Smith IO/X turbo fan goggle: http://www.backcountry.com/smith-iox-elite-turbo-fan-goggle?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6SU8veDoxOjY6SU8veA

If you want a stiff board with a ton of pop that can crush pow lines to big booters, this is your board. It is not the best for pressing in the park, but if you're not a park rat you won't mind this minor flaw in the board. Great response, super durable, and fun board to cruise around anywhere on. I had the older model for 3 seasons: 70+ days, 100+ days, 70+ days, and only damage on the board was when I ripped the sidewall out early season on a rock. And it was my fault, not the boards. Highly recommend this board!

Great headphones while working. That is primarily what I use these for, and when you throw them on and pump up your music you won't hear anything going on around you. Not the best music quality out there, but good enough for chilling out with Pandora while you work from home or the office.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

I got these for my girlfriend as an all around boot to wear to work and around town. She was excited because on other sites the comfort was raved about.They are comfortable, but not super comfortable. She usually wears 6.5 and these fit her just great. And she does look great in them!

We usually have two different bags available. One is meant for boards up to 155 cm in length, and one is for up to 165 cm in length. Unfortunately we are sold out of the 165 right now. But it looks like we should get some more in later this month. So check back if that's the size you need.

Unfortunately due to VTR (Vendor Trade Restrictions) we are not allowed to ship Thule products outside of the US. For any shipping costs you can check it out in the checkout area when you enter your country . These shipping costs do not take into considerations any taxes,fees, etc
