Hey guys,

here's a quick review of the Foxnum jacket from Element. This is a lightweight down jacket that is equal to about 800 fill down. Very very light. This is a perfect top layer for your casual stroll around the city or for your commute to work on those chilly mornings. It packs up really well and can be stuffed into any size bag you have. Makes for a great pillow too in the car if needed. The photo is of yours truly running the coat for a night of ice skating with the wife. Temps were around 28 this night and i was perfectly comfy. Fleeced lined pockets, one chest pocket, the waist cinches down and the hood has ties if it gets windy. I am 6'0 about 200 lbs and i wear an XL in this. Some element gear tends to run a tad small so if you're wavering on a size, i would size up and you'll be good to go and enjoy the jacket!


Here's a quick shot of the Lichen Green Cartels hanging off the Jackson Hole Gondola. I rode them on my Jones Moutain Twin 159 which i have also written a review on as that board is a total ripper. For anyone new to the game of snowboarding or anyone who just wants another opinion before pulling the trigger on a set of binders.

The Burton Cartel has been in their line of hardgoods for over 10 years. I have been riding cartels for , yup you guessed it over 10 years. This comes in at just the right amount of flex and support to straight line it and give you enough support or just the right amount of flex to lap the park all day long.

Other features such as the forward lean adjustment and the ability to roate your highbacks, which some might say does nothing but i still do it and adjusting them so your highback is parallel with your edge i still feel helps a lot. It for sure helps your calf settle into the highback and dig in for some really aggresive carving.

Other parts of the bindings such as the comfy molded straps and ratchets work really well and if you ever have a problem with anything Burton is always there to help with their incredible W48 warranty program. What is W48 you ask. W48 means they will repair or send out a replacement part within 48 hours of receiving it. Plus your baseplates have a lifetime warranty no matter what. They will also send out free parts if anything breaks and you don't need to send the entire binding back.

So to recap here. Great binding, been around for over 10, tested to it's limits, and the binding of choice for many professional snowboarders. Not to mention the price is right in line with all the competition but there really isn't a binding that can do all of this for this price. The binding comes with 3 sets of discs. 1 set for 4 hole patterns, 1 set for 3 hole patterns, and 1 set for the channel system which works really well as i've mounted these to my Burton 158 cm Malolo. I love'em and you will too!


Here's some footy from a few nice pow days at Brighton, this is the 159cm, i'm 6'0 and about 195 lbs and this has plenty of float. The bi-axial fiberglass glass allows for some additional float when it's a little deeper which is nice and you don't have to fight it when ripping pow turns. Love this board and have put it through the ringer. YES it's a snowboard, YES it rips, YES i love it!
