Burton Hover is the real deal.
Thanks Mike - I did get a chance to try both M and L. The L was very baggy and loose. M seems to be a much better fit with room for a down sweater puffy. Just a tad tighter then my other Burton AK jackets in the same size.
Hello - what size should I get medium or large? I'm 5'10 175lb 33in wasit and 41 in chest
Hello - I'm athletic built 5'10 175lb and 41" chest. I own a Cyclic and Stagger in Large and they are pretty roomy. I have read that this jacket runs very big, should I go with a Medium or a Large? Thanks.
Smith IO with Maze helmet
Smith IO and Maze
This is by far the lightest and most comfortable helmet I have owned. I owned various other helmets in the past Red Muntiny, Bern Watts, Baker, Vantage and Giro G10. The best features are the simplicity and light weightness of this helmet. It feels as if you are not even wearing anything on your head. The helmet fits pretty nicely with my Smith IO and Prodigy goggles.
I don't know why it took this long for a company to come up with a good Bluetooth solution for winter helmets. I have owned a few pairs of first generation Skull Candy helmet Bluetooth headphones in the past. Gone is the big ugly knobs on each side of the ear pads that make you look like a space dork. The best thing about these headphones is that they are hidden in the inside pocket of you helmet liner (with audio liners), once they are in, you cannot tell from the outside of your helmet that you have headphones install. They fit perfectly on my Smith Maze helmet. The controls are really easy to use with one large button on each side of the headphones. I was able to with ease turn on, play music, skip fwd, rwd, pause, stop, answer calls. Another really nice feature is the ability to use the Voice commands on my Samsung Galaxy Android phone (hold the left ear button and press the right ear button to activate voice command) to pretty much make calls, send a text message, start up my music, Pandora without ever needing to take out my phone. No that is awesome. Next, the sound quality is decent, not great compared to my Jaybird Blue buds. But it allows me to heard the background conversations while I'm listening to music, which is what I like when I'm on the lift or shredding down the mountain. Go buy it if you are looking to that tangle free wireless solution. It is the best Bluetooth solution out there for now.
Hello - I'm 5'10" 33" waist at 175lbs. What size should be good for me without being overly baggy. I like to fit a little loose with room for layering and protective pads. Thanks.
Hello - I'm interested in purchasing this jacket but a bit confused about which size to get between medium or large. I'm 5'10 , 175 lbs, 41" chest and 32" waist. I were medium in the Free thinker and Arxteryx Sabre jacket which fits me fine with room to layer a down insulation or atom lt. Given this jacket is labled as Alpine fit would th medium be good or should I go with the large? I like it roomy but dont want to be too baggy.
Thanks in advanced.
Hi, i'm 5'10" 180lb 33x30 pants, will the large work for me? I heard these are cut pretty slim, I will be using them for snowboarding and like somewhat of a relax fit, not baggy but relax and roomy enough for a light base or fleece layer if needed. I own a Sabre pants and the fit is relax. I'm afraid medium might be ok at the waist but too slim on thights and legs andblarge might be too loose at the waist. Any help on sizing would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, how is the big sky color? Is it similar to the blueray color? Lighter blue or dark blue? Thanks.
I'm 5'10 and 180lb and wear the medium in the Beta AR and Theta AR (same cut with longer hem, it definitely gives me a good amount of room to layer a patty down sweater hoody or Atom lt hoody without feeling any restrictions. These jackets are cut with extra room to layer although they are called athletic fit. I think for your weight and height you are better off with a small, unless you really like it baggy looking which in my opinion doesn't really look good with Arcteryx jackets.
Hello, sorry another question on Theta AR or SV jacket as a year all rounder 4 season jacket. Which is better and why? How's the Theta AR or SV for a single go to all year round jacket. Snowboarding, hiking, rain jacket and around town use. Will be paring it with the either Atom LT Hoody or Patagonia hoody down sweater in cold days. Would a lack of powder skirt be a concern for skiing or snowboarding?
Hello, i'm 510″, 180lb and 33″ waist looking to get this jacket but undecided on size medium or large. Does it fit anything like the torrentshell? I have the torrentshell jacket in medium and it is pretty athletic and slim fitting. I would like to use the nano storm for snowborading and as a general everyday jacket for fall, winter and spring. Would you suggest the medium or large given your experience with the jacket? Im just afraid the medium might be to tight when I add on a mid layer and the length too short for sking and snowboarding. Whats your thought on this?
Thanks Brandon. I'm planning on using this bib with the Theta SV jacket I'm looking to purchase. Since they don't come with the powder skirt, how compaitable are they with the Theta SV jacket? Also, as I mentioned, I like a more relax but not too baggy fit, do you feel a medium would still be the choice?
Looking for size help on sizing for the Stinger bib.What size should I get Medium or Large? I'm a 33" waist and 30 inseam for dress pants at 5'10" and 180lbs. I will be using it for snowboarding. I like more of a relax freeride fit. I also own the Sabre pants in Medium, does it fit anything like the Sabre?
Paul, how would you compare the Theta SV to your Sabre for sking on the slopes? Does the non powder skirt on the SV bother you? I want a shell that would serve all outdoor activities purposes and wonder if it would justiy the cost to own the SV and Crossbow.
Hi Paul, Could you elaborate on the color as compared to Bondi Blue, Micro Blue (which you own)and the Blue Ray I have on my Crossbow, which I think is a bit more subtle . I wanted to use this jacket not only as a ski jacket on the slopes but also wear casually around town. I just wanted to make sure the squid ink is not too flashy or girlie for a lack of a better word :-)I could not try or see this color jacket in person as my local shops does not carry it but I did see the Sabre pants in squid ink color and though it was pretty purple looking. Also, would the carbon copy Sabre pants match will with this squid ink color jacket? I hoping to return the Crossbow and get this jacket to use for all seasons. Thanks again. Jeff
