MILWAUKEE, WI // MT.HOOD, OR
Very warm yet low profile insulation. All the pockets are reinforced with a zipper snap or snap velcro closure, so you won't be losing anything from the pockets!
I gave them a 4/5 because the sizing runs big, waist and length. And I'm not completely sold on the whole pleathery looking fabric.
ALSO- If you want BLACK pants, don't buy these. They're more of a dark grey.
The Mutiny is a great helmet, I'd give it a 5/5 anyday... I've worn it for quite a few years.
My boyfriend bought the Mutiny Audio and by the 2nd day wearing it one speaker was shorting out. Thinking it was just his, I went and bought one myself... and also had some shorting out issues. Also, the mute button is easily pressed by your jacket when your bundled up on cold days.
But when they ARE working, they do sound good, and the volume control on the cord is very useful.
This jacket looks a lot more badass when it's not zipped up all the way like it is in the picture. It has a sweet furry liner on the inside back and the rest of the liner is silky with sweet graphics! It has a lot of great pockets and is SUPER warm without any bulk at all. I snowboard 6 days a week because I'm a snowboard instructor, so I am very dependent on durability... this jacket is it! Very worth the $260!!!
I'm 5'5" and a size Medium fits great!
I already rated these a two after my first day of wearing them. But now I'm just mad.
Along with all the other stuff I listed in my first review...
The 2nd day wearing these the pocket I had my iphone in already has a huge hole in it.
And if you don't have a lowprofile boot or smaller than a size 9, have fun getting the gaiters over them... because you won't.
Also, if you're 5'8" or taller, these will be way too short.
I am harsh on my reviews. I snowboard 5 days a week and have gone through MANY snow pants. These are by FAR the best snow pants I've ever bought for many reasons...
They fit great.
They keep me dry.
And they are SUPER durable!
No other snow pants have come close to lasting as long as these have!!!
You can't go wrong with these!
I was really optimistic about these snow pants after reading the reviews, only to be very disappointed...
First of all, I was hoping these pants would be "slim fit". I have a very athletic build, and these pants are tight around my upper thigh, and pretty loose everywhere else. Also, I wore these for A DAY and had my iPhone in one of the front pockets... and the material of the snow pants started fraying in the shape of my iPhone! I can't possibly imagine how these snow pants would last through a MONTH seeing as I'm a snowboard instructor and ride 5 days a week. The snaps on the bottom also have a tendency to come apart. And lastly, if you are looking for BLACK snow pants, don't order these! They are NOT black... they're more of a gunmetal dark gray.
I am impressed by the insulation though. It's thin insulation, but they were surprisingly warm... And I get cold VERY easily. And though they're not as "slim fit" as I'd like them to be, they do have great style... so I'm sad to say I'm going to have to be returning these... they just won't last.
All the above ratings only rated these snowpants on their overall fit. What about how they performed?
I was seriously dissapointed with these snow pants... and even though I've had a previous problem with a Volcom Jacket, I still love Volcom. But no more Volcom outerwear for me!
It is true they run big, so size down. They're a lot baggier than the picture seems too.
As for the performance... By the 2nd week I was wearing these the buttons fell off the closure, even though the pants were big on me. (Same problem I had with a Volcom jacket) By the next week small things like the gaiter clips were falling off and the bottom of my pants were completely torn apart. I do snowboard 5 days a week because I'm an instructor, but I was still hoping they'd hold up a lot better. Also- they are a lot less water resistant than I was hoping. I ended up spending a lot more $$$ on a pair that won't fall apart on me and will do their job.
They sound really good for the price, and they have a nice low profile... BUT, if you are picky about how headphones fit, I wouldn't buy these. They are slanted towards your ears, and for my smaller head, they're too slanted and the headphones are too wide. Also- If you tend to throw your headphones in a backpack or not worry about them too much, you'll most likely break them. Luckily I got my pair for $5, I might have been a little disappointed had I paid $25 for them.
If you are really into music and willing to spend a little more, go for the Lowriders instead.
I love this watch because I have tiny wrists and it fits so good!
I also don't know why it says it is not waterproof!!
IT IS WATERPROOF UP TO 100 METERS, AND EVEN SAYS ON NIXONNOW.COM THAT IT IS GOOD FOR SNORKLING, SPEAR FISHING AND SURFING! AHAHAHA
I wear it wakeboarding all the time!
They are a lot smaller than I thought they would be... but they fit my face great! They are SUPER strong... I took a huge face plant of a roller coaster rail and ended up breaking my face but the goggles were fine! If you have a helmet that has good venting they will never fog up. I'm not sure how they would do without a helmet or with a bad venting helmet.
By far my favorite helmet I've ever owned!!! It is sooo warm, but not too warm! My head never sweats in it. It has such a low profile fit, it's super light, and doesn't make your head look huge! It also fits PERFECTLY with every pair of goggles I have.
A lot more sturdy than I thought it would be!!! And it's still pretty light. Holds a lot. I put my razor cell phone in the pocket all the time and it does just fine... I don't know what the guy up there is talking about! ^ Don't go to the hill without it!
