I've used AK gloves, mitts, other Pow gloves, Dakines etc etc over many year.

Hands down these are the best I have ever used, especially if you play in places at -15 - 20 degs C or below. So actually these would not be great in warmer temperatures. Super nice thick pile fleece in the glove to keep you warm, additional primaloft to keep you warmer still, and possibly the most waterproof glove I've ever used. Good dexterity and great leather on the palm. Ive always had issues with leather scuffing or stitches fraying but after a season these Pows still look good as new.

Get them, you wont regret it. All your other gloves will be 2nd rate spares after you get these. Theyre actually so good Im considering getting a second pair if Pow ever decides to discontinue this model.

I have a huge head so I went with the XL. The helmet is nice and fairly low profile. Comfortable fit. The matte colors tend to pick up random scratches and dirt that discolor it a little. I have the grey one so maybe it just shows up a little more. One gripe about this helmet is that the top vents (four holes on the top lid) have no rubber plugs to block them in the winter. So if it snows you're going to get a wet head, which will then freeze, and really piss you off. I've taped mine but thats such a stupid thing to have to do. Wish RED paid better attention to details like this....

Just a few days back was going through powder in the trees and misjudged the turn...too many trees and too tight a path. Turned late and clipped a tree at speed with my knee. Could barely walk for 2 days. With these kneepads I can take on the trees once again!

I have this year's model in the Tokyo lights colorway. The bag has all the compartments and what not from a day carrier like this so you can stash away to your heart's content. But i feel the build quality of the bag is not great and am glad i got it at 40% off. The waist and board straps dont look like theyll hold up to much abuse. Im coming from an AK 23L pack from a few years ago...the quality of that pack is way superior to this one but then again its nearly twice as exp. I'd recommend the AK or Dakine packs if youre serious about using it in the backcountry rather than using it as a lunchbox carrier round the resort, which is what the day hiker is more suited to.

ive been using the AK range for the past 2 seasons, and quite a lot in nothern japan (niseko) where snowstorms are no joke with 13/4 meters of snow per season. ive worn foursquare, ride, bonfire and burton's ronin in the past and all of them have been useless in anything but minimal snow showers. AK goretex gear on the otherhand leaves you bone dry and blocks the worst of the winds. I know the gear costs more than most and an AK jacket and pants can burn a 700 dollar hole in your wallet but it will be the best snow gear investment you've ever made. believe.
