I LOVE THE REALTREE CAMO, I am a 37-38 and even the XXL was very snug but it eventually worked when I took out the inner liner. I love these pants nonetheless and I just gotta trim down my buddah belly and I will be right as rain!

I love this baselayer due to the warmth they offer but the length and the tightness of the bottom of the pant makes it difficult to not have them inside my snowboard boots. I would rather these be knee or 3/4 length. Awesome for Apres ski tho!

So I got this and I wish now that I would have bought the Polar version for this time of year due the warmth factor. At the end of the day, this UV Buff is great for cutting down on wind but also those harmful UV rays. I generally never get a Goggle tan, more like a gnarly Goggle Burn and that can really be intensified when you are at 10K feet and you get that already bright sun intensified reflecting off of the snow. This really allows me to run worry about greasy sunscreen wish I hate putting on. I think I will get a lot more use later this ski season and then in Spring for Fly Fishing and also this Summer for hiking. Happy with the versatility and the material. Wish it was not so long.

Airhole got this one right! No more FOG!

So I had been looking for a good hood for a long time and WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER! This hood is super rad. It is a 2 layer so very warm and wind resistant. I love that I can wear a thin beanie and my headphones underneath. I am a heavy breather and the actual Airhole is an awesome concept, really allows me to expel my breath outward and not up into my goggles. You can break, smoke, talk and even sip on a straw with the Airhole. You can tuck it right under your chin just like a traditional buff if need be. I would like it if they made this larger so it had a looser fit but then again, I have a big head. All in all, I am Stoked and cannot wait for some blower powder days up at Snowbird!!

I do not wear anything other then Smartwool Ultra Light socks for when I go snowboarding. The only brand of socks you can rock 2 days in a row without washing. Feet smell just fine.If you run cold then I would recommend a foot warmer or a thicker sock. I picked these up in Tennis Ball Yellow since I wanted to change it up from the traditional Black. I am in LOVE!

So I must be honest, I love the idea of the Airhole. I am a pretty heavy breather when I snowboard and the idea of my breath not fogging up my goggles is key. I wear this just like a normal buff and it works great. I can use the Airhole or tuck it under my chin just like a regular buff. I have a pretty gnarly beard and this gaiter does not make it uncomfortable to wear over at all. My only complaint is the thickness. The Drylite UV is a very thin option, but I think it is going to be rad once Spring time shred season comes around and the Blue bird bright sunny days abound! For right now when the temps are a bit more frigid, I would highly recommend the Merino or Cashmere options for colder days. This Drylite UV will be great in the bright sunny days since the material is 50+ UPF rating. This product may not work for everyone but I really love it. With the Airhole you can breath, drink, smoke and even whistle at a cute snow bunny!

I love this shirt, I bought the fatigue Army Green color and it is a very well made shirt. I got the XXL and it was a bit large on me but I loved how soft and warm the shirt is. The Graphic is printed very well, on the chest as well as the arm. Viva la Volcom!

I am in love with the beanie and have only had it now for a couple weeks. I have a big noggin, wear a 7 3/4 fitted New Era, and this beanie stretches over and still has room to feel comfortable. It is constructed very well and does a very good job of blocking the wind wind I am flying down Regulator. It is a very warm and comfortable beanie for Apres-ski as well! Thick to boot

What can I say about these shoes that Vans does not with MTE?! I bought my first pair of these a few months back and I was hooked. I work up at Snowbird on the weekends and these shoes grip incredibly well walking to work across that Chickadee trail. I have tromped around in some gnarly snow and slushy conditions delivering Pizza to all the hotels up their. I have not found a in-climate weather condition that can trip these shoes up for performance. I would say the only drawback on this particular pair is the lack of the sherling lining. I have a pair of SK8-Hi MTE with the lining and those are incredibly warm. Nothing a pair of good thick socks cannot fix. I got the Ivy green option and they pair well with a multitude of outfits. Cannot wait to stomp around in them in the Spring time!

So I ordered these in the Khaki colorway thinking they would be a bit darker in person and when I got them they are a normal Khaki which I should have expected.
Nonetheless I love the pants, they are super comfy and even with a straight leg, and I have some thick thighs, these do not constrict or reduce my range of movement at all, I would highly recommend these to anyone, I will for sure buy the Tobacco color.
Oh yeah, the Bottle opener is CLUTCH

I got this in the Black/Mint colorway and I absolutely love it. I have used it already multiple times and love the warmth it offers but it is not so constricting so it does not make my Oakley's fog up. I have a pretty sizable beard so it is not always easy to find a face mask that fits comfortably!
I have a Mint green Sessions jacket and this pairs so well with it, just love that color.
If you want to stay warm and not feel like you are being choked, this this the neck warmer for you!!

So this year I decided to be an amazing big brother and bought this snowboard for my younger brother as a Christmas gift. He is a bit more of a park rider back East where we are from so I think he will love the full Rocker profile.
Being the Snowboard junkie that I am, I had to take this deck out for at least a couple runs before shipping it out.
I was very much impressed with how much to board floated in the powder at Snowbird, I am a big proponent of full Camber systems so the Rocker did take a little bit of getting used to for me.
Now that I have gotten to try this board out, I am for sure going to grab the Arbor Coda Camber System in size 162 for myself.
These boards made by Arbor impress me just as much as their Longboards do with full bamboo top sheets and the Grip tech edge which is perfectly placed under foot and heel! This board is amazing and I would highly recommend getting yourself onto one today!!

So I bought these in the Reaper colorway with the Wing. I had grown up watching my favorite pro riders using these Wings and I wanted to experience what that is like finally.
It has really opened my eyes as far as pressing in and out of boxes and even just leaning back with riding deep powder in the Wasatch Mountains. If you are a park guy then I would highly recommend these for really solid pressing in and out of boxes/rails. Even if you want to just be an all mountain ripper these are a great option for you as well!
These will only work with Burton EST model snowboards!! Hit me up anytime on chat for any more detailed questions you might have!
