Solid shirt that fits like most other basic baseball tees. Killer, well printed front graphic, but I wish they had printed it on a softer shirt, like the regular tee shirts Dark Seas usually use. This shirt is pretty damn awesome, but the graphic is what stands out as opposed to a unique fit or super soft cotton.

...And let your arrow fly when your wearing this shirt! Good fitting lightweight shirt with a solid simple design. Nice and lightweight, so I anticipate this will be a great shirt to wear in the summer when I need that long sleeve button up that's not a hot flannel. Nothing to exceptional or out of the ordinary about it, just a good shirt! Normally wear M in button downs, this one fits fine!

Great shirt, nice 'n' soft, fits well, and looks good. Skulls, Stars, and Seas? Hell yeah, awesome graphic. Only thing to mention is that I the Graphite colorway, expecting it to be a fancy name for black, but the shirt is actually a very dark grey. Not a complaint, maybe even foresight of my own, but still probably something worth noting.

Went over to Thule's site to use their fit guide, which will show you the exact parts you need for your whip, and concluded that I'd need the part #1596 to go with the Traverse foot pack, (Backcountry.com item #THU0271) on my '99 Volvo S70. They fit just the way they should and even held up perfectly on a 12 hour mountain pass snowstorm maiden voyage. As long as you get the correct parts, everything should work relatively seamlessly!

Only the visuals are much clearer! I've worn the Kaleidoscope frame from some 5ish seasons, and don't expect myself to change that anytime soon. They have great peripheral range for a cylindrical lens, and keep a simple style. I actually prefer a cylindrical lens over spherical, as the frame will help keep them from getting scratched when I carelessly drop 'em. The velvet lined face foam also adds that touch of luxury you'd expect from anything sitting on your face! The only downside I've found with these is that the mirror might wipe off when wet if your not careful, but if you just swap out to the yellow lens, it won't be an issue. Ashbury always keeps it fresh with they're designs, too! Thanks to LNP for keep it metal with the Black Sabbath strap!

As a smaller dude, having a little narrower board for ripping groomers around the mountain is awesome. Real quick edge to edge, so that makes for snappy, fun turns- the root of fun snowboarding! Not so stiff that it was uncomfortable, but still stiff enough to hold its own at high speeds. Didn't take it through the wringer in the park, as the board I rode still had some pretty sharp edges, but the park riding still felt good- it is a little better suited for hitting jumps than simply jibbing around the park, but it's well rounded enough that you shouldn't have any problem having fun on it in the park. Bottom line- narrow board makes for a fun one, as long as you'll fit it well!
I wear size 8.5 Nike's, weigh about 140 lbs. and I'm 5'10"- I rode a 151 in this board.

This board is a helluva lotta fun. If you're looking for a loose, jibby reverse camber board to rip through the park or in the streets, this is a great choice. Also, if you've ridden the original Park Pickle, but thought you'd like something even softer, this is just what you're looking for. A little too soft for my personal taste, but this board is a fun, buttery smooth jib machine that will slay any feature you throw at it. Forest sure shreds this thing, and you can too!

This board was a huge surprise to me- likely standout of the year! I mounted it up expecting it to be a bigger mountain style board coming from Slash, but it was awesome. So glad they are using a variation od Salomon's Equalizer side cut- I think it's some of the most fun (and simple) edge tech out there. It was flexible enough to be fun, but not overly loose. So good for carving, cruising, and surfing. If I rode it strictly in the park, I would prefer this be a 148, but if we're shredding all over the mountain, the 152 would be sick. Oh, and I think this is one of my favorite graphics ever. I would look down and see a dragon, and think "Sh!t, I wanna do something really cool!" So yes, this board is epic.

... It just doesn't have the BANG factor I've been seeing in so many other boards lately. Solid board, but nothing exceptional. Loose, and flexy, but not frighteningly so. I liked the board, but there wasn't really any real selling point to it. If your looking for a jib specific board that can handle getting beat into rails day after day, this will do you wonders. But if your looking for a board that will do much beyond that, look into something else. It just wasn't super fun to cruise around the mountain on.

Choosing to ride these bindings, I had no idea what to expect, but I felt they were way to stiff for me. That being said, I also made the mistake of riding these just in the park- after riding them, I had figured they'd be awesome if I was going big on a pow day. The ratchets felt sturdy, which I really like. The heel cup was really small as well. I rode them with Nike boots, which I also thought had a smaller footprint, so the size of the heel cup surprised me. The whole flex-base plate idea was kind of squirley at times, so that was a little odd for me. Its an interesting concept nonetheless, and something that you will probably need to see to really understand. Overall, I think I liked these bindings, but you'll have to get used to them, and I would really only want to keep these on my pow board set up.

This board was my first time trying TBT, so that's really what I was looking for when testing this deck out. I was bummed that I couldn't noticed the TBT more- it really just resulted in some odd flex patterns in the board, but, me personally, I didn't notice a big difference from other boards edge-to-edge. This board is still a lot of fun though. Great all around park board- not to loose to be scared hitting jumps with, and not to stiff either. The TBT makes the flex a little different from what I like- it feels like its harder to flex then it really is, and when its pressed out, it doesn't really flex where I wanted it to. Overall, a fun board, but I think it really comes down to whether you like TBT or not. I was riding the 148, which was sized good for strictly park riding, but the 151 would be better for when I am just out cruising the mountain. I usually ride boards around 150-153.

This board really shines with the camber profile Salomon used, especially with Salomons sidecut tech- its an awesome board, that is stable around the mountain, but flexible enough to press through any rail! Basically, with the Rock Out camber, you get a lot of the snap and power to cruise the mountain. Salomons sidecut tech is top notch as well- just the right amount of contact points in the right places, and I feel like I can really tell when they engage, also for more stability. That being said, I still ripped this thing all over the park and loved every minute of it. I rode the 150, and I'm a tall, skinny 140 lbs, and I feel like it fit me well.

This board is so fun, I keep coming back to it year after year. I've most recently ridden it in a 149, and for me that is great as far as a jib specific deck. I would bump myself up to a 151 if I wanted to take it out of the park, personally. CapItas flat/ rocker combo on this board is awesome- Loose when you want it to be, but still holds the pop of a lot of other boards. Pressing this board is as simple as they come, but I never feel like I'm loosing control when cruising the mountain at high speeds. Overall, this board is BAD ASS.

Right off the bat, these really are great bindings. I rode the winged highbacks, which doesn't add a whole lot, but they are fun. These bindings really stand out, though, through the Heel Hammock. It will really hold your foot down well, and helps a lot with keeping those ladders from getting chewed up- which is awesome. My biggest gripe doesn't have to do with these bindings in particular, it's across the whole board with Burton Re:Flex bindings. The Re:Flex baseplate does not allow for many stance options- basically you can put them in the pre-drilled holes in your board, but no fine tuning. Which is a bummer, as few people's stances really fall into that area. Overall, I did like the bindings though. They seem well built and ride well- great for a ride in the park.

First off, these bindings aren't bad- you simply get what you pay for. Not a ton of cash flow and you like jibbing everything in the park? These will be awesome for you. The highback is extremely flexible- you can practically fold it upon itself, but it still holds well leaning back into it. I enjoyed riding these bindings, but the ratchets ate through the ladders in less than a week. Not sure if it was just the preproduction model, or if they all ended up like that, but that was my largest issue with these. Also keep in mind, these bindings utilize Re:Flex baseplates, which I also dislike because the Re:Flex baseplate does not allow for many stance options- basically you can put them in the pre-drilled holes in your board, but no fine tuning.

Wore these boots all summer at Mt. Hood, and while they get the job done, Nike's done better. First off, I like Nike's- I've had the Zoom Force 1's for over a year, and really beat the hell out of them, and they've held out well. And if you were unaware, keep in mind, Nike's generally run a little more narrow than other boots- if you have average or skinny feet, you'll be good, but a wide foot, probably not so much. Unfortunately, but the only advantage I found in these DK's, compared the ZF1's, is the articulated ankle cuff. I liked the addition of that, but I think the ZF1s hold up better. (I still prefer my year old ZF1's to a 3 month old pair of DK's.) I also felt that the toe box in the DKs were smaller, where as in the ZF1s they fit me better. Finally I miss the lace cinch at the ankle on the ZF1s- not a huge thing, but it helped dial in the lacing that little bit more, while keeping traditional laces. Still pretty happy with these DKs. Not as tech-y as the Kaiju's, but a little more to them than the Zooms.
