Me and my buddy bought these at the same time. His began to rip on our last trip. Mine have some minor tears in them currently. Gloves like this take a lot of abuse, I usually expect if I am lucky to get about a season out of these.
On a positive note the touch screen index finger and thumb are very responsive and work great. The grips on the glove also are some the best I have every had a glove.
When buying these expect them to last the season any longer would be a bonus.

Great goggles

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are clear great during the brightest part of the day to the late afternoon when the shadows roll in. You can really pick up the change in terrain nothing is hidden with these.
Also, you can change out a lens in less then five seconds.
The design on the goggles is prefect.
I changed out the lenses the day I took this photo.
I find that my prism lenses have started to fog up. Its not bad and goes away quickly. When I use my replacement lenses I don't have this issue.

Fit: True to size

I really do love this base layer. Its a tight fit that really does a great job. I wore these 20 plus times these season and the fabric is as good a new. There isn't an odor after going days with using these and not washing them
The pants go down to about the calf so you don't have any fabric other than your sock in your boot.
I would buy another pair of these

Oakley built a great product

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

Used these bindings for 1 day on an Arbor A Frame and the backs released twice after coming down hard during a landing resulting me taking some big falls. Shortly after the first time the back came undone it happened again coming on the lift and that's when I called it a day. I own the regular NX2 and have rode them hard all season no issues. After the experiencing this issue with the GTs I am a little hesitant to continue to use any flow bindings.

When these did work they were ultra stiff and responsive which is a pretty accurate product description.

If you do care about safety steer clear of these!!!

First trip was this bags last!!!!
1 5

This bag is the worst travel bag I have every owned. Both zippers broke on the first trip. If you have high quality gloves and neck gaiter do not pack them with you board or anything you care about. The zippers will bust open with just a board in the bag, with little to no pressure on them. Do not buy this bag!!!! Its more likely that you boards and accessory will end up broken and damaged due to failed zippers. This seems to be a common occurrence with this bag. There are other better options than this bag out there. Props to Matt P at back country for taking care of my issues!!! He helped out with my issues. Backcountry stands by the products they sell and has a great return policy.

Burton really went back to basics on this one. I am someone that needs true laces on my snowboard boots. The level of comfort and the upgrade technology in a classic boot make all day boarding a breeze. The boot is quite responsive and provides a ton of feel to the rider. If your like me and like to loosen up different parts of the boot and not bound by a boa these are the boots for you.

I was a bit nervous at buying these first. People either love these bindings or hate them. I will have to say that the initial set up may take a bit of time and getting them dialed in at the resort took two runs, but once you have your straps locked in you will never need to touch them again. I am off the lift and boarding in seconds. I get great feel and control out of these. I put them on a Lib Tech 163 and love my setup currently.

Weak seals on the internal pockets.

Update,
I put these pants through quite the test for the last week boarding 5 consecutive days. They did keep me dry which is great. The back right pockets internal seam busted while on the slopes luckily my wallet did not slip out of the pants. For pants that are only a couple of months old with say 30 or so days riding in them this is something that should not happen. See photo.
I know burton has a lifetime warranty but its a huge hassle to have to change these out through there warranty program. Its like that saying from Tommy Boy, did they sell me a quality product or a piece of crap with a lifetime warranty. I am leaning towards low quality with a lifetime warranty. After examining the seals on the Goretex I feel that busted seals with minimal use will be a common occurrence.

Best snow pants I have owned. They are very high quality using only the best materials. They vents and pockets are perfectly placed. and the pants attach nicely to the AK jackets. These kept me dry and warm all day while on the slopes.
