If you don't layer just enough, or have the exact waist size for these pants will have to wear a belt, there are no waist adjustments inside or out.
I don't like wearing belts on the mountain, they make the bulk of winter gear even more bulky and uncomfortable.
Also they fit a little big.
I like my snowboard clothes to look closer to street clothes, and I am 5'11 160lbs and these feel baggy on me. I thought a tailored look would be, well, more tailored...
I usually size down to small in all my airblaster gear, but wanted to go with a medium to see if they improved their fit, but it looks like they still have the same boxey fit, but honestly compared to most retailers I think Airblaster make some of the best fitting garments, I just need to find the piece that has the style I am looking for. Maybe the sissy pant?
My wife loves this board.
When she first got it she said, "If I am going to go snowboarding... At least I'll be reminded of the beach!"
So it passes the cutestness test!
It also passed my tech test, with sintered base to stay fast and strong, stable flat profile underfoot, rocker and bowled tip and tail to offer catchfree ride and nice float in the powder, and a 3 year warranty, so we don't want to worry about any issues with the board.
So a few things.
My first impression of the coat was a positive one, it fit well and looked great, but after playing with the features and inspecting the coat I decided it would not work.
I love listening to music when I ride and this coat is lacking a media pocket on the inside of the jacket, in fact, it does not have any pockets on the inside of the jacket, and only has 3 external pockets, with no port for a cord to come into the jacket.
Also the jacket's insulation is very sparse, and could easily pass for a shell.
I would say these boots are closers to 6 in stiffness. They are on the later part of the scale, but they are not so stiff that they are hard to walk in or feel like they have pain points that grab your feet.
The boot fits a little small, I wear a 42 (9) in pretty much every shoe I have and I ordered a 9 in these. I probably should be in a 9.5, but I was able to pack out the boot and heat the liner up to fit my foot well.
Note of caution, don't heat the footbed up too much as it will warp the moldable padding and you will be left with a uncomfortable footbed.
And the biggest reason why I bought the boot was for the double boa. I am infamous for taking 30 min to setup my boots just right. I never wanted boa in the past because it did not offer the customization I needed. But after using this double boa I am converted. Saves me probably 25 min of setup, and is secure for the entire day.
Great boot, DC has done a great job!
Now that I don't skate anymore and my feet don't grow, I can own a pair of shoes for years, which gets really boring; especially, when you pay $80-100 on a pair of sneakers you don't want to have to pay $100 for a new pair just to mix it up. That's why I am so glad that Volcom started making shoes! I have always loved Volcom so getting some of there shoes was a no brainer, then when I saw these were on sale (I paid $25 for these shoes with promo code and outlet pricing) it this was exactly what I was looking for. I don't expect them to last too long (thin sole and canvas shell) but they offer a great cut and unique look and help add some diversity to my shoe selection for cheap!
These are great. I got them on sale with a promo code, so they were a great price. I don't think they are worth the $60 price-point, but for $27 I paid they are great. Great length (I wanted a shorter pair of shorts), dry fast, and I guess I am helping the environment by wearing them..?
When are you going to get more of these in the mittens?
I love the AK. It is my second coat from Airblaster. It is awesome, super waterproof, really light, and still super warm; once you start moving in it, it will keep all the heat inside so even though it is light you wont need to bundle up like crazy.
Also if you are like me and you like your clothes to fit on you body and not look like you are wearing your dads suit coat when you were five, get a size smaller than normal. 6' 160 and i have a small coat and fits perfect, but like i said I am not a baller so i dont like tight pants and baggy coats, just things that fit nice.
