Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Ordered both size 7.5 and size 8 boots but had to return them. I usually wear and size 7.5 shoe and from reading the reviews about them fitting shorter I also got the 8. When trying them on, the size 7.5 boot fit great on my left boot but seemed very "short" on the right. This was surprising since my left foot is longer. Upon taking out the liners, the right liner was shorter even though the liners were both marked 7.5! It looked like a size 7 liner in comparisons. I compared the liners of the size 8 boots and at least those matched lengthwise. Unfortunately, the 8 boots were a little large in the heelcup.

Other than that the boots are lightweight and show really nice build quality. It would've been perfect for my style of riding. Not sure if this was just a liner mismatch or if a whole batch of them were bad (size 7.5 is a new size this year as last year's DC Status didn't have a 7.5) Hopefully I can find another pair in 7.5 that actually fit.

Fit: True to size

I'm 5'6" and 150lbs and tried the Sabre in both size Small and Medium. Judging from the majority of the reviews saying how large the jacket fits, the Small would've been the best bet. However, for my needs (snowboarding), I kept the Medium. Here's why.

1. The Medium has more versatility when layering due to greater volume.

2. The Medium is long enough that it covers my butt and doesn't even extend past mid-thigh. Snowboarding requires sitting down a lot and this helps prevent a wet ass.

3. Shoulder mobility feels less restrictive. Yes the sleeves are long and covers my hands but cinch them up over your gloves and it's not noticeable.

Great jacket overall as it's designed as intended (which is for in-bounds snowboarding with a relaxed style and fit). Also has a nice clean style to it. Not sure how people over 6" taller and 20lbs heavier than myself feel like a Medium is too large....maybe unless they're using it for backcountry or skiing.

Rode the board once and it seemed very dead. Not lively at all. I was expecting a lot more liveliness due to the bamboo construction but it just wasn't there. Could be the Flat Profile, i.e., zero camber, tech in it that caused it. Turns seemed to take more effort than what I was used to. Decent, but not for the price Salomon is asking for. Would be better for a beginner that preferes a damper ride.

Excellent goggles. Always have used polarized sunglasses for driving and last month at Copper was the first time ever using polarized goggles. Conditions ranged from bluebird to cloudy with snow showers and these performed excellent. I didn't realize how much the glare reduction (from light reflecting off the snow) could've made such a big difference under such varying conditions but now I'm convinced. Having such a consistent field of vision is well worth the price!
