First off, let me say that I’m a huge fan of Burton's AK line but I'm not overly impressed with this glove. Although the 3L Hover mitt is quite stylish and virtually impossible for water to penetrate, the gloves' fit is feels completely wrong! Wearing all three gloves provided will definitely keep you warm but at what cost. The glove becomes bulky. I found wearing only the 1 inside liner and the shell is much more comfortable. You have the option to pull off the outer shell while keeping the inner liner on, which is great for doing up your bindings or changing your playlist on your iPod. Keep in mind that putting your outer shell back on can be a pain in the ass trying to match the male a female hook-and-loop parts so that your gloves become one again. The cuffs are longer than last year's model, but I still have issues getting a good snow tight seal over my AK Jackets. The wrist is very tight while the length of the fingers is too long. I have more than an inch of play, which is a bit annoying. The design appears to be more durable than last year with improved leather and leather treatment included with your gloves. I will be putting the glove through the ultimate backcountry test over the next 2 months. My snowboarding tour begins tomorrow. I'll keep you posted with just how well the AK 3L Hover stands up to the challenge.

An excellent goggle...I am not a big fan of the goggles out in today’s market. I do however like the look and fit of the Spy Orbit. No restrictions in your view which was very important to me. Like Spy advertises, the Orbits never fog up and I have yet to get a scratch. Trust me I have bailed hard on my face many times and still not a mark. Orbits fit well with the Reds Trace and Hi-Fi helmets. I use both helmets and the Orbits fit flawlessly. There is barely any gap between the top of the goggles and the helmet. Sometimes when bombing down the mountain the goggles do whistle. Not enough to be annoying though. The mirrored lens lets your wondering eyes "SPY" at the snow bunnies. All these wonderful options comes for a steep price but well worth the money in the end. I would recommend the Orbit Azzure blue/orange lens. Quite stylish...I get nothing but compliments.
