Pimpin Vest

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love this thing. I always hated wearing a camel pack, but still like to have water on me while riding all day. This vest / flack jacket eliminates a bulkier CP. It has a tons of storage too. The smaller zips on near the shoulders are perfect for your pass on one side, and a pair of shades to wear on beer breaks in the other. The four main pockets can store a flask, snacks, board lock, keys and wallet no problem. Whenever I wear it, I get tons of comments and questions on it. I haven't utilized the shovel straps on the back yet, but only because i don't venture into the backcountry often. (85% of my riding is done at Mammoth)I wear this most days unless it's really dumping and I need my heavier jacket. Other wise I throw it on over a Burton riding hoodie and call it a day. I've also worn it on hikes -it's perfect!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The most disappointing Burton product of all time. The cable is hair thin, and the housing is crap. It either froze solid, or just got stuck internally because I couldn't get it unlocked after securing my board for lunch. Used it maybe 2 or 3 times. Had to boot-stomp it, which popped the damn thing right apart. Not very secure in the aspect.

Awesome overall, as you'd expect from DaKine. But in 90% percent of planes, this is definitely not a carry on. If it's 75% packed full, it will be be to big (high when laying down) to fit in most overheads. I barely got in in on a Southwest flight, but when I switched planes to Horizon (Alaskan) it was way too big and they ended up stopping me at the gate, taking it, and charging me $40 to check it. When I got on the commuter plane, it was obvious it never would have fit. So be warned, on big planes, it MIGHT FIT in overhead, if they even allow it on, but on most normal size or commuter planes, it will not. And if you're going to check it, you might was well check a bigger bag.
It's handy for weekend car trips.

Had the Burton version of this - basically the exact same thing but with different logo - for 4-5 years. Worked great, just enough to make a board-snatching dbag move on to the next one that has no lock. It finally crapped out on me, partyly because I believe I mashed it one to many times riding / falling. Of course, it decided to not releases the lock when I had it chained up with my and my bro's boards. Two well placed heel stomps on it busted it loose. A couple people gave us looks, but only because we did a lil dance after freeing our boards.
Does the job like a car-club: why F with a locked board when there's 1000s of unlocked ones lying around? Worth it for sure.

My first return- it's pretty darn big. From the floor-up no way it will fit in an overhead bin, which is why I bought it. 14" is the height with nothing in it (when having it laying normal with it opened up) Stuffed full it easily gets to 20". Great quality though ifmyou need a durable ,edium sixpze travel bag you don't mind checking in.

These shirts are dope! I picked up the Astro turf and the blue/gold combo. Wore the astro turf out last weekend and got a bunch of compliments. It's also super soft and comfy, perfect for a chilly night. I'm 5 10 / 185 and the medium fits perfect, albeit a tad long... Thinking bout picking up the other colors because I like them so much.!
