Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Killer board. Great All Mountain Freeride/Freestyle Board. Holds up great at high speeds and large lines. Really, it does everything. Have tried many other boards, keep going back to this one. This will be my 4th TRS over the years, and I must say this year I was real happy they made it stiffer. That has always been my one issue, it gets soft. So, it should now have increased pop, stability, and life. Also must say, always thought the graphics were a little off, now they're truly off. Not stoked on graphics, but really, who buys a board for graphics anyways?! Giving 5 stars because I love riding this board everywhere (I'm mostly riding deep powder, steeps, chutes, cliffs, side/backcountry).

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Killer style, great visuals. (Although I have not used them up in the mountains.) I wear a Smith Vantage helmet, and decided to go with a Smith goggle in order to get that perfect fit. These have a bit of a gap between goggle and smith helmets. Otherwise, these goggles are pretty solid.

I am 5'10, 155 lbs, got the Medium. The medium is a little too baggy and wide in the body for my liking (I am picky when it comes to fit), but is understandable because I probably should be in a Small.
Besides fitting though, I am pretty happy with its construction. I could see some of the stitching on the outside eventually coming apart after lots of riding, but am really a fan of its shell construction. Also, overall it is a great looking jacket, and has some really cool details throughout.

Overall, if there wasn't a fitting issue, (or if I could get ahold of a Small) I would definitely be keeping the jacket.

I am 5'10, 155lbs, got the Small, and it fits perfect. Great length, a nice fitted mid section, that still has room for layering.
It seems to be constructed real well, very minimalist but still has essentials (music spot in chest).

The one negative is, it has no wrist gaiters, and NO Pow Grip! I'm a huge fan of wrist gaiters, in order keep the snow out of the arm area. So much so that I will decide not to buy jackets if it doesn't have wrist gaiters. But, I have it now so I might keep it because I really do like the rest of the jacket. I'm having a tough time deciding...

Like the gloves. Not 5 stars because there's a little extra material on the ends of each finger that slightly reduces dexterity. But, I'm still able to fumble around with my mp3 player, so the loss in dexterity isn't huge. Overall, they keep my hands warm and dry. The wool on the inside is pretty warm. After approx 40 days of use riding/touring this season, they're showing some slight wear on the leather of the fingers, which is mostly caused from unbuckling bindings. Also, the inner lining of my index finger is starting to wear through.
