I really want to buy one of these jackets. Will the new season colors be in soon? I know that BC reads these reviews, and in my opinion, the stoic colors are terrible. Can we please have some normal colors to choose from this season? If they had some less radical colors, I would have purchased one of these yesterday.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

These were excellent shoes. Good grip and support. However, I wore them out in a month. No tread left, and that is all that keeps your feet from felling sharp rocks in the trail. Unless you have 100 bucks to spend on shoes every month, don't buy these. If you do, go for it! They were awesome for a month!

Awesome shoe. Good grip and support. However the insert is thin, basically like cardboard. I put a superfeet insole in, and the shoe became 100 times better! Interestingly, every mountaineering boot I have ever purchased has needed this upgrade as well. 4 stars because of the paper thin insole.

I live near Seattle and bought mine at the OR store...they were great for one year...waterproof, well articulated, as I used them for both inbounds and out of bounds snowboarding. The second year they started to soak through in seat area. I washed them and waterproofed them using the nikwax wash and spray on tx stuff. This didn't help them...I will be returning them to OR this offseason for a new pair...

By far the best custom I have had. I previously had the 05 model. Floats great in the pow. I noticed that in certain situations where I would have ended up going over the nose of my old board, that the reverse camber of this one just popped me right back up. As far as groomers go, I can go as fast as I want and feel stable. Just for fun I took my gps up on a super cold day, and hit 60 mph. board felt solid at this speed. I have never ridden a magnatraction, but have heard it is great in icy conditions, but this board did just the same as boards I have ridden with out the maganatraction.

As far as I am concerned these bindings were a good upgrade from the CO2's I had ridden on for 4 years. Very responsive, which is what I like in a binding. That being said, Burton needs to change the glue they used to keep the air bed attached to the plastic on the foot bed of this binding. After two days up the toe piece has come unglued, which creates a place for snow to get between the footbed and air bed parts of the binding. The snow packs in during the course of an afternoon of ridding and makes your toes start to point up uncomfortably. For the price, 400+ dollars, I would have expected Burton to use a more robust, waterproof glue. I have since glued them back down and I hope this fixes the problem (I hate to send back a working product that I can fix in 2 min) but if it does not, they are going back to Backcountry. Thanks for your great return policy Backcountry, and no thanks to Burtons quality control and crappy warranty policy.

i know this has been asked but would like clarification. how is it that the copper is lighter then the emerald mt by almost a pound. from the pics the emerald looks like it should be lighter because they used complete mesh walls, while the copper only uses mesh on the top half. thanks for your answers.
