The wheat color is more brown than yellow
This is a belt. It holds your pants up. Not much special, but I wanted to point out that the buckle does snap off allowing you to substitute whatever buckle you want on the belt. I use my several Nixon buckles without issue on this guy. Looks like leather without paying for it.
I got these for my wife. She is a size 9.5 so I sized down so that she could wear these without socks. They ended up being too small so I got a 10 instead.
The fur inside is extremely soft! We were both quite surprised. The rest of the shoe is about on par with what you would expect from Sanuk. Very comfortable, unique style, but not much traction in the snow.
Its a standard fit sweatshirt, but as David mentioned it FEELS small because you have a large insulation (fur) layer on the inside. I thought I had ordered the wrong size by how it felt, then I looked in the mirror and it fit great.
These are pretty good little stomp thingys, but they do come off. Granted, I put mine on in the parking lot of the resort and so thats probably my problem, you will want to put them on properly with a blow dryer like it recommends. Good news, there are actually 9 of these in the pack like the picture shows (not 6) and I can only fit like 6-7 of these on my board without it looking too cluttered, so you have extras to replace if they do fall off. Overall, for $10 they are minimalist which is great and get the job done.
I have really enjoyed my Cartels. They are one of Burton's tried and true bindings. Mid flex, comfy footbed, and pretty plush but minimalist straps as well with no pressure points. You CAN find more comfortable straps but they are usually 5lb pillows. The B3 gel on the footbed is legit, and there are pleanty of adjustable features like you would find on most high end bindings.
I also always love Burton's ratchets, they run smooth and last for quite a while. I usually strip my straps way before the actual ratchet teeth and I crank the holy crap out of my bindings. Replacement straps are $5 at my local shop.
I wear an 8.5 Burton boot and have these in a Medium. All my straps and adjustments are in their middle positions. They could go smaller or bigger still.
In the sea of sub $400 jib boards how do you pick one? The answer lies in the Whammy Bar. This board is not just another noodle with a weak core to make it "jibby". Its not only a good quality snowboard, but has the spoon tech that slightly lifts each edge like a...well...spoon between your bindings so you can get your 50s on lock down without knocking out your front teeth when you meet Mr. Rail after catching an edge. Since its only between the bindings your overall board control is not affected on the rest of the mountain.
As a soft jibby board with V rocker tech, this thing will be the best in a quiver as your second park day board for all mountain riders or an only board for the park rat or urban guy who hardly ever cruises the rest of the resort. V rocker still floats like crazy in the pow though if you are so inclined. I see this spoon tech being the next evolution in jib boards and is SUPER helpful especially for the progressing rider transitioning from boxes to rails.
If you can find one, I highly recommend trying to get your hands on the Restricted colorwave with Bob Marley themed graphics. The thing looks siiiiiick.
Usually our photo department does a good job of taking good pictures, but we didn't even begin to do the Whammy Marly justice in this one. I am usually the guy who yells as my friends for picking gear by style over features and fuction, but if you are looking at the Whammy anyways: get the Marley Restricted. It has a thick clear coat top sheet over the graphics which makes it look super deep like an ice cream paint job. The red/green/yellows are also super vibrant. Not neon just poppy.
To the important things with this board, the concave middle is the biggest selling piece. Its slightly lifted at each edge like a spoon so you can get your 50s on lock down without sacrificing your front teeth on an edge catch. Its in the middle of the board though in between the bindings only, so edge control is not affected on the rest of the mountain.

I really like these boots if used for what they are intended for. They are pretty freaking soft, but they are an ultralight park boot so they are supposed to be. If you are looking for the best mix of soft tweakability while still having a boot that fits right without a ton of heel lift these just may be it for you. They feel surprisingly shoe like actually which feels really good. The EST footbed is not canted forward so your foot pressure is distributed all over the footbed just like a regular shoe instead over the ball of your foot. That, along with the soft flex and light weight, almost makes them feel like I have a sneaker on. The Restricted colorwave only adds to the shoe like feel as they match a pair of my DVS skate shoes almost exactly.
Also, Burton finally swapped out their liner lace locking mechanism so its not that stupid yellow tab anymore. This new one is MUCH more user friendly and a bit more substancial as well. Doesn't look like it will break any time soon. I wear a size 10 skate shoe, 9.5 slipper, and 8.5 snowboard boot. These fit perfectly for me like snowboard boots do at an 8.5. I basically run 8.5 across the board (Burton, Ride, Thirty Two, Northwave)
These things are some of the most comfortable boots I have ever worn in my life. They have a foam like sole on the inner lining which adds a super cushy comfy feel to the boots. They are traditional lacing which is good for getting your EXACT fit dialed down. About a 6/7 flex is perfect for the true all mountain rider looking for the best in comfort.

I give this binding 5 stars in the bindings under $199.00 category. These are about the best learner bindings I have found out there. Easy in and out with good ratchets, soft flex for learning goodness, and value priced. Decent ankle straps that are not super pillowy comfortable but not hard at all. Didnt give me any pressure points or anything. The toe strap is meant to be worn over the toe which I like, but if you want a traditional toe strap steer clear of this one.
Size 8.5 Burton boots fit in a Medium like a charm. Comes with all the baseplate discs you need for any board. I used mine on a 4x4 and 3D board.

You CAN find more comfortable straps but they are usually 5lb pillows. Board feel is pretty amazing because you do not have anything underfoot except the foam footbed. No plastic or metal discs, baseplates, or anything really. Just your boot, the foam with gel absorbing toe and heel sections, then the board. Combined with limitless stance settings for these EST verions and its magic.I always love Burton's ratchets, they run smooth and last for quite a while.

This is a killer snowboard. Except for you crazy powder hounds this board is one of the best boards you can buy. It basically has every piece of tech Burton has this year in it. Its super light, great mid flex for everything park and their hybrid "Flying V" rocker shape. I really prefer this shape over a traditional rocker and this board neither folds in half on me nor is super washy like the other rockers I have tried. I am 5ft9in tall 175 whopping pounds and ride the 55 all around the mountain. I have taken this thing out of bounds into the deep abyss of Utah powder but also use it 70% of the time for park slaying. That's the beauty with the Channel system...2 screws, slide your stance back, and you have a pow board all while your friends are still strapping in.
I rode these with Cartel ESTs which overall was a very pleasurable experience. I would recommend this board to anyone who...well...anyone.
No, these do not come with the Retro disk and no bindings come with the Channel hardware - only the Burton Channel boards. If you need more hardware (screws and bolts) the best thing is to contact Burton directly or contact your local shop. Mine sells the screws for $1 each. As far as the binding plates, you will want to look at a different set of bindings as the retro disks only fit Burton bindings. Each binding company has a different tooth pattern on their baseplate.
If you are asking how many battery packs come for the purchase price, these are sold in pairs (one battery pack for each boot). You don't need to purchase two of these, just one.
