Sorry to say that I don't snowboard, but this belt makes the average guy into MacGyver.
First of all, the belt is attractive and high quality (i went with the brown but might get the black one, too)
And the tool buckle is well made and does actually work. Within the first week I had already used the Phillips head 2 times to the amazement of my friends.
Get it. Just for the novelty alone its worth it...but then it really works....so its a home run.
