Tommy Gordon's Bio

I've been skiing since the winter of 97-98. I love the park, but moguls, carving, and bombing steeps are all really fun too. I have recently begun seeking out more natural features rather than pipes and jumps. My home resort is BMBW Ohio, home of the largest school ski club program in the nation. I have been out to CA, CO, NY, PA, and UT to ski as well. I am also a year-round runner; snow, sun, rain, gravel, dirt, grass, or even asphalt if I have to.

Me- 5'9", 165lbs, 32in waist. The medium fits me well enough, but they are very long. I am forced to wear these much higher than I normally wear pants (even snowpants) to prevent them from getting stuck in/on my bindings . The Quincy Quigg print is sweet. It's got monkeys, fish, and dinosaurs. It is a liitle more grayish-purple than it looks in the product pics. The material is very thin, but it has held up fine after a few uses. The pockets are great. 2 normal from pockets and a cargo pocket on the left side, all securely zippered. The cargo pocket is also covered by snaps. The elastic on the cuffs is tighter than most pants, and fits very securely over my ski boots. It has Lib's snap-to-pant system for powderskirts: there are 4 snaps hidden under a flap just below the belt loops on the back. But unless you have a Lib jacket, this probably won't help you much. The inner leg vent is a single zipper as you can see in the pics, but it is smaller than I would like. Overall, I would recommend these pants. Beware- you may become known as "the guy in the monkey pants". But that's never bothered me ;-)

I rode this ski with griffon bindings. Its a pretty lightweight setup. spinning was easy. the flex is super soft. if you land backseat on the tails they kinda shove you back into position a little bit. the whole center mount thing takes a little getting used to, it is a little slower and slightly harder to turn. Not a great performer outside the park. Recommended for those doing 75%+in the park or if you have solid all mountain boards already. if your iffy about length go a little longer so you have some surface to land on, plus the center mount makes them feel shorter in the air. also, the mass of longer skis makes it easier to complete the last few degrees of bigger spins (540+). The only thing i would like better is if it had a little more pop, but you can't have that and a buttery flex.

i have last years model of these; they pretty much the same. They are very adjustable; if they're not comfy try adjusting the arch support or the canting; they are a huge step up from my old boots; you can also adjust the flex (80-110), forward lean, and the positioning of the midfoot cable. You can disassemble the whole thing to clean it and put it back easily. Lighter weight would have made it 5 stars

Low tips? I noticed the tips are very low when i saw a pair in person. Has anyone had experience with these in deep snow or chopping through crud? Also, does the re-curve version of this ski, or the pipe NAS, have any more height to the tips? I'm worried about soft snow days on groomers and crud.

The brim on this helmet gives it a nice look. The brim looks nice over a pair of googles. The earpads are thicker than REDs i've had in the past. The airflow adjusters are right under the brim and give a good flow of air through the whole helmet. The chinstrap cover makes it pretty comfy. The goggle clip can be removed and flipped around to put it in a higher or lower position, whichever will make your goggles stay on better. It is actually one of the lightest helmets I've held. The only complaint I have is that on every color, there is some kind of design on the back right. I like a cleaner look, but its not too bad. Great helmet
