I just got this jacket in the mail. Its VERY heavy and the liner is much smaller than on the size chart. I have 38 inch chest, ordered a medium which apparently runs 36-38. It fits perfectly, but the liner fits more like a 36inch or smaller (completely unwearable). Had to exchange it for a large jacket and I hope the liner from that jacket will fit.

Update: Now that Ive had this jacket for a month, here is the low down. The media pocket in the left forearm is only meant for a small media player, not a full sized IPOD or IPhone. I do however like the season pass holder in the bottom left front of the jacket. If flips down for a quick scan, then velcros back up for the run. Also the pass stickers are an added humorous bonus ;)

Length of the jacket is good, its well waterproof, the zipper is metal and seems durable so far but it does snag on the split zipper cover.

I bought this off SAC for 52% off and I feel ripped off. Firstly, the glove seems of good quality of both material and design. I am a size 9 hand and the Lrg glove fits perfectly.

Now for the bad. I wore these glove once so far in a windstorm and was sadley disappointed with them. The gauntlets without insulation let the wind cut right through to the hands chilling them quickly. I was only -3 (without wind chill) and I felt like my hands were naked in the wind.

Its too much to ship these bad boys back, so they will remain in my trunk as backup gloves as something is better than nothing in an emergency.... I hope.

I got this gogle with mirror pink lens and in the faux denim look. First off, not the best looking gogle, but it on par with my spy blizzards that it replaced for function, comfort and fit.No issues fogging for the first 5 rides (so far) the rose mirror lens is AMAZING. Good in bright light, excellent in low light and even in a white out I had to lead the way out while my friends had yellow oakley wisdoms on and were fully blind. Helmet compatable with my Giro g9 helmet (no google gap :) )The only issue i had was with slight fogging up. This may be due to the fact I was done up for a -20 celcius day and it turned out to be around -5 but one good bomb at full speed, the gogle vents did their job and cleared up quickly.I would say these are worth every penny on Brociety or SAC and I would purchase again.... just not the "vibrant" colors ;)

I used these gloves at -18 celcius (Sorry you americans have to do the math but its 4 degrees Fahrenheit) at Whistler BC last month. Not only were my hands comfortable, but my buddy with glove warmers and his northface dilithium gloves and liners complained all day about cold fingers. I was by no means sweating, but I was warm.

I have also used these gloves on warmer days (-2 celcius, like 28 Fahrenheit) and they breathed well enough and my hands did not get over sweaty or wet.

I am a snowboarder so I spend alot of time with my hands in the snow, so I would recommend this glove for anyone.

For the guy that complained and said he needed thin liners to make the gloves warm, I have no idea why you would even need liners with this glove unless you are concered ease of regular cleaning.

I have these bindings since 06. No problem except that I make have the replace the straps as they are getting worn from overuse :) The paint chipped off in spots, but they are well used. The bindings in combination with my vapour deck left for a comfortable easy ride. If the price is too much, and you want something that is similar, try the burton customs as an alternative. Otherwise, these bad boys are worth every cent!
