Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: 30

I wear 30's in all my pants, majority fit perfect, some run loose, these were too snug, didn't even wash them yet, so size up. Also on one pair the button popped right off as I was unbuttoning them, so be aware, build quality is not consistent.

I just bought a pair of selects, basically the same thing as drives, and I can tell you they do not fit the 32 super lashed or lashed xlt so don't buy selects or drives if you have wide boots, get pilots or the o drives. The rubber/foam they use in the flip it straps is stiff/hard as a brick of fruit cake, did not conform well, and created the worst pressure points. Also, the toe cap constantly slipped off and where the binding narrows before the heel cup gave me a blister on the inner part of my heel. I ended up putting my switchback straps on them to make it tolerable for the day. Other than that, the bindings provided a really damp and responsive ride.

PS: The way NOW binding models are setup is terrible. Unless you get the selects, you don't get all the customization options, but if you do buy the $300 selects, there's a good chance they won't fit your boots well. If you buy the pilots, which are only $20 less, but feel like they should be $100 less, they don't even put rubber around the inside of the heel cup to pad it and give a nice uniform look with their flush highback, instead they just texture it, which anybody with an exacto knife or sand paper could've done. For the price of NOW bindings, you'd be better off spending that on any other binding company out there.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

First off, I bought this board strictly based off how awesome it looks and not expecting much.
It's a cambered draft, the board is a total noodle in the tip and tail, but still has decent snap, for now, due to the camber. Not the biggest fan of arbor's lifted edges and grip tech. Don't buy this board thinking you're going to be able to point it and not feel chatter or be able to really rail a turn. It'll carve, if you know what you're doing, but it felt like it was going to wash out constantly. The base is extruded, it's tough, but doesn't really hold wax and it's slow, especially if temps get into the 40's. Overall, it's a fun jib board.

got mine today and they're sick! First time using skull candy. I've always used sony in the past. The bass hits nicely, even when cranked up. Overall sound is clear and the inline volume control makes things so much easier to adjust. I only wish they were the style type that went behind the neck, but that's no deal breaker. And there's no type of static or sound from the chords touching. I would definitely recommend these.
