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

They are a little bit of a pain in the ass to get them on with all tge lacing systems and boa etc. But once their on they feel really good!! The heel hold is great. They can really go from a pretty soft flex to a pretty firm flex. I would say they can range from between 3-8 on the stiffness scale. Its cool that you can add the tongue inserts to stiffen up the flex, but are you really supposed to carry them around on the hill to adjust to what type of terrain or riding your doing? That could get kinda annoying. We’ll see I guess? Also, if you dont buy these boots from a shop, where are you supposed to go to get them heat molded? I dont think a shop that sells these is going to want to help me with my boots I bought from somewhere else... Or will they mold on their own after just riding in them for a while? Would a hair dryer work to do it myself? If so, how long do you heat them, how hot do you get them, and how long do you stand still to get the mold set? This review sounds like I should have done some more research before buying them. But I tried them on in a shop and know how good they feel. Their pretty light for how bulky they look. I was surprised. 32 TM3’s seemed much heavier. I even strapped into a Union Atlas binding with these on and it felt like one seemless piece of equipment. Hopefully stays that way when screwed to the snowboard... Maybe I’ll do a follow up review after I take them out a few times and really see what they can do? Oh yeah, be careful pulling the power strap tight. The little plastic Vans tab on the end ripped right off in the store the first time I pulled on it. Gotta remember to pull from lower so I dont rip mine off. Lol!! Buy these boots!! Their bad ass for sure!! Just takes a little extra work to get them dialed. But Im betting its worth it in the long run... Pray 4 Snow!!

Who does the "frequently purchased together" matching? It must not be done by any real system that actually puts things together that have been bought together a few times, because here is a pic of what it says is frequently purchased with this brand new, top of the line mans snowboard.. The 2018 GNU Muillair. I highly doubt anyone bought either of these bindings for this or with this deck...

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So I bought these in the 2015/16 season and have ridden them probably 55-65 days. Mostly pow days. A few park and groomer days. I am still making adjustments to them to try to get them dialed in. Mostly with the toe and ankle straps. I like a very tight and solid fit with my straps so that when the binding flexes, I still feel secure in my riding. The toe strap just stretches as far as you can crank the damn thing down. It can feel tight for a few runs and then just wants to stretch more. Their to the point of the buckle zones digging into and deforming my toe cap areas on my boots. Some stretch is fine but these are ridiculous. They could easily use a little more ridgid of plastic to solve this problem. The ankle straps are kinda the same way. I wear a size 10 Nike Danny Kass boot and have the lrg/xl bindings. The m/lrg would have been too small and these are a bit too big. I thought size 10 was pretty much the middle of the road for sizing? You would think they wouldnt make the cut off right there so neither size binding is perfect. Not sure what they were thinking there? They could have also made it so either size would fit size 10's and work out from there. My ankle straps are cranked down way tighter than they should need to be and instead of getting a nice and tight lock down, I either cant crank them down any further from the pressure being too much for the buckle system to handle. Or they just crank down into the boot and dig into them making them deformed and damaged. I know there are bindings out there that can strap down as tight as I like because I have had many pairs that did. I wish they would make the med/lrg for sizes 6-10. Then make the lrg/xl for 9-12. Then Xl for sizes 11-15 or whatever. So even if you fall in the middle your gonna be covered with either size binding. Then you just pick if you want to strap down tight with lots of room to spare. Or lock down tight with not much wiggle room but still fitting just fine. Dont make any one sized foot not fit good in either size binding... That is a huge design flaw!! Its almost like printing tee shirts in size mediums and extra large only and everyone who wears size large is screwed either way... I had the Boss 390's before these and never quite liked their fit either and thought these were the answer to all the issues I had with the Bosses but they just fell short in different areas. Might be time to try a different company I guess? I used to love the Nidecker Carbon Fiber bindings but I think they stopped makeing them? Anyone know whats up with that? Or know a binding that would compare to them? Whats up with the Nitro Machines or Phantoms? They look like they might be really nice high end bindings... Thanks

This board looks amazing!! It decribes itself to be even better... I bought it and took it out a few times now in the powder and I cant feel this great floating everyone keeps talking about. I set my bindings back today on a 161cm and it still was nose diving. And I was leaning back as hard as I could most the time. The semi directional T Rice floats way better. This board rides like a shorter twin board that is to big for the park but to short for the deep. It should come in a 163cm or a 161.5 semi directional freeride shape with slightly setback inserts if it wants to claim great floating. Maybe more rocker and less camber by the ends? I dont know? Just doesnt crush pow like I had hoped it was gonna. Wasnt as light as I thought it should be either for having the FP construction. Was fast on flat smooth surfaces. Didnt handle chop to well either. Legs are pretty beat up from the shockwaves. Sick artwork though!!

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: Xl

So at first this was my new favorite shirt. Very comfortable, warm, cool design. After wearing it about 5-6 times the material is wearing out quickly. It's becoming frayed and faded and looks like it's already years old. It still feels good, but for the price I would have hoped it would have looked nice for more than a few wears. It's starting to look like regular sweatshirt cotton or something instead of the fancy technologically advanced material it claims to be made from. You don't always get what you pay for and this shirt is an example of that. I have another pair of Burton long underwear bottoms that I have had for over 10 years and they still look almost new. I guess you just have to know what fabrics and blends last longer than others. This is 93% polyester and 7% spandex... It does not feel like it. Feels more like a spandex/cotton blend. Polyester usually feels more plastic like. This shirt is much more soft. Doesn't feel like it would dry very fast if I sweated heavily either. I would call this a medium weight but lightweight shirts are usually longer lasting than this is... I don't recommend this shirt unless it goes on sale for $30 or less. Find something different.

Comfortable right out of the box like a boot should be. They are breaking in nicely too. Got about 20 days on them and no signs of wearing at all except that they might be getting more comfortable everyday? Didn't know they were heat moldable liners? I just threw in my custom foot beds and went riding... No need for heat molding as far as I can tell. Would hate to change anything on them by cooking them either. Great boot, dope style, and always down to rep and support Danny Kass!! Buy these boots unless you have a narrow foot or like super stiff boots. Peace!!

I have wanted a lowe alpine pack for a while now and the cerro terra is soo dope!! I couldn't ask for anything more except for it to come fully packed with new clothes and camping/hiking gear. I've used it once on a road trip and I'm going to use it again on a 3 week trek around thailand. Wouldn't want to make this trip with anynother pack. Wish me luck....

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So I have a the 2011-2012 pair of sl's... They feel good all around. The only problem,"which is a big one", is every time I land with any kind of real pressure, the back foot ankle strap slips to a point of dangerous towards injury. I thought the teeth might have been worn down, but looked fine visually. I replaced them anyway to no avail. So I let the strap out a little in case it wasn't set long enough for my foot. No help... They just slip out all the time. Actually, I can't even tighten them down enough from the start. Which is a disappointing way to start each run. Seems like they could make a more solid ratcheting system for the price... Besides that, they seem like they would be perfect. Hope somebody from Union reads this.i gave it 2 stars to bring the overall rating down on the overview page.

I bought it for the one size fits all. There is no fitting guide on the lumbar pad where there should be one. Also there are no color stopes in the adjustable lumbar strap to know what size your putting it at. The color blue is a little loud too. Besides that, the pack is real nice. Great quality materials. But not worth the price. I might return it before I use it?
