You should be fine without a wide. Just make sure you get some boots with shrinkage tech. They fit like an 11 but are the size of a 10. At any rate I wear a size 11.5 and have no problems on a 25.4cm board. I wear Burton Imperial boots. You may also want to check out Rome boards, they tend to be more like mid-wides in the longer sizes and they make good stuff.

Decent helmet

My head measures close to 57CM and I find that the Medium fits perfect. I also have a smith vantage helmet and the Vantage is a tad lighter on the head but this helmet is not by any means heavy. I got this helmet because the vantage in matte white just looks too much like a bike helmet for my liking.The profile of the Commander is not bad either and I've attached a pic to show what it would look like if you're on the slopes. Not super low profile, but definitely not the bobble head look either.

These bindings are appropriately named "Force", because the amount of force needed to unbuckle the toe strap is somewhere in between the Jaws of Life and a Vise. If you dare to try and disengage the toe buckle without gloves on there is a good chance you could rip a hole in your finger or rip a finger nail off. Seriously, with cold hands, the pain is unbelievable.

The binding itself seems to be good, but the fact I may need to call the FD to remove myself from the toe strap means these guys are going back.

You've got a good product Union, unfortunately it has a major flaw that makes them unusable. The fact this big of a flaw would make it through QA is somewhat amazing in itself. Fix it.

And yes, I know, there are like two people out there who have buckles with no issues, let me assure you, that does not represent the masses of us with the issue.

The boots have a very small profile and next to my Burton Invaders of the same size, they are nearly 3/4" shorter in length and also have a much reduced overall profile compared to my Invaders. Basically the Invaders look like moon boots next to these.

My only complaints are that I seem to get a lot of heel lift in these boots and also get a pressure point on the top of my foot if I lace them too tight trying to avoid the heel lift, yet the boots fit perfectly. From a comfort standpoint I believe that my Invaders are much more comfortable and also seem to hold my heel better, but I wear these because of the smaller overall profile and also I'm a size 11 and want to avoid any heel/toe drag.

Stomp pad worked great while it was there. 2nd day out it fell off somewhere on the mountain. Before applying the pad I cleaned the board very well and applied it very meticulously. It was extremely cold the second time I was out (16- 18 degrees) so maybe that had something to do with it.
I did buy the medium mat for my GF's board and hers seems to be sticking just fine. I had a devil of a time getting all the leftover stickum off my board though.
