So first off, these gloves aren't the warmest, so be smart about when you use em.
They're dry, period, unless you got a bad batch or your hands are always in the snow, where they shouldn't be, you shouldn't have a problem;
if you're just learning, i recommend against these cause they don't hold up to much abuse, especially not dragging.
they're small enough to mess with ear buds and change songs on your iPod too (just lick the finger so it gets warm enough for the sensor), i'm a big fan of being able to use my hands, and not drop my gloves every time i've gotta make an adjustment or strap back in.

Also, *important* when putting them on, NEVER pull on the velcro tab, it will rip pretty easily, pull on the glove itself and they'll last a while

i got this bag from dogfunk last year, it made it from japan to san diego and back twice, i wheeled it nearly a mile in downtown SD, and its helping me move into my new place right now; it should fit everything you're trying to move (don't know why you'd be moving anything bigger). awesome thing about it splitting like that, you can live out of it like a small foot locker instead of having to un-pack all your stuff if you're moving around alot. i've heard about some dakine stuff not having the quality it should, but that hasn't been the case for my bag. the outside pockets are kinda small and not really too usefull, but i guess they're a plus if you ever use them; at least it doesn't take any functionality out of the bag; thanks to it's size i'd say it's the most useful for long trips, yeah, i recommend it

i'm not really sure why these goggles are rated so high, they actually looked kind of cheap (sloppy plastic molding). i loaned mine to a buddy, third run of the day, he landed on his face and they just broke, the only thing holding the hinges to the frame is a weak piece of plastic; I also have a pair of Spy Targa II's and they're alot nicer, the periferal vision's a little better and they seem to be built better;

these goggles aren't half bad, they look good, hold up to my abuse, and best of all, i've never seen fog on the lenses;
they seem to be built okay for being just plastic, the rubber behind the strap is nice, and they're all kinds of flexible, if you can get a good deal on them i'd say jump on it

i love these boots, the sizing charts were dead on; these boots are the most comfortable ones i've ever worn; they loosen up a little after my first run just cause my feet haven't settled into them yet, so i tighten them and then never have to touch them for the rest of the day, they get great traction and keep my feet toasty (coupled with burton socks) i never got them heat molded and they molded nicely to my feet after just a few days riding; my only regret is that i didn't shell out more money and go for some higher end thirtytwo boots, if these ones are this nice, i can't imagine how nice their higher end boots are.
Only downside, they've got a pretty good size footprint, but they still fit into bindings
(8.5's fit great in medium cartels)

(Update, i got a little too drunk on a trip and lost one boot in Nagano, so i've got my sights set on the Circuit Boa now)
