Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought these after coming from just normal lace 32 Lashed boots. Made a huge difference for me - it's quick to tighten up and GO and the way the laces tighten really help to prevent heel lift. (Also should be noted - super quick to undo and get OFF when your fingers are freezing and you want to get in the car and get warm.) Fairly stiff boot and pretty reactive to user input.

I wore these 50 + days this year at resorts, did a bunch of hiking in them and really was impressed with how tight they stayed throughout the whole day with no adjustment.

Only lately has the very top of the lacing system been coming loose, it's not in a consequential way but I am a little disappointed they are coming loose at all by the end of a ski day.

Super warm, I haven't been wearing my normal snowboard socks because they're overkill with these.

I wear an 8.5 normal shoe, purchased a size 8 in this boot. At the end of a very full season, I wish I had bought a 7.5. They are packing out already and becoming a little more roomy than I would prefer for just one season in. Suffering through a tight boot early season for some longevity with them would have been worth it.

I like them a lot and they've held up well, all things considered.

Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: Medium

I keep coming back to these. After riding a TON last year (3+ rides per week starting in the spring) my gloves are still in good riding shape. Not bulky, breathe and articulate well while still providing protection. Love the color schemes as well, guaranteed to match your kit perfectly.

Have used this helmet for a few seasons now and have even replaced it with another Trabec after crashing hard on it. Can say it held up to a huge crash earlier this season, I was super glad I was wearing it! It doesn't breathe as well as other brands do, but I'd prefer the head being covered than breathability, so you just need to choose what features are important to you. Also I love the color options. There, I said it.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small

I have used these for lift riding at resorts in Park City. They are super burly, made with durable fabric. They don't breathe at all, which makes them great for close calls with trees or sliding out (when it happens), but if you have to wear them for any climbing be prepared to be warm. I'd recommend for downhill use only. Very functional, made well and have lasted me a whole season of frequent use and the occasional wipe out.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use my shoe covers for early morning spring and fall riding in Utah, usually including a decently long descent (temps anywhere from 35-60 degrees). I have been pleased with these, haven't run into any tearing or anything over the course of at least 10+ rides with them. I wear a size medium shoe cover over size 40.5 women's Sidi shoe. I have no brand comparison to make, as these are the only kind I have used. Zipper is a little tough to get up all the way.

I have to be honest and say that the only board I ever owned before this one was 10+ years old, and manufactured by a company that no longer exists. That being said, I really love this board. Rides like a boat in powder when you sit back a bit, handles the groomers with no chatter to speak of and is very playful. Found it to be a bit hooky when it was very new, I detuned it and feel more comfortable now without such a sharp edge. (That may be personal preference, but it really made a difference in my experience.) Flexible when you do jumps or ride through crud, but stable enough to get some speed without worrying.

as a female, i got the size small and they fit wonderfully. got the Mascot color. Love these for taking my dogs out, I can actually grasp a plastic bag without taking my gloves off! Perfect! Have used them as a liner on the hills too, perfect on chillier days (as these are pretty warm on their own). Stylish and vibrant without being blinding, the perfect casual glove.
