I love these pants. The waterproof rating is spot on; run it under a sink, step in a puddle, anything, and you're dry. The warmth rating is amazing; I'll only have to wear some thermals, if that.

The color is actually my favorite part about the pants. I bought the Blaze Leaf Maze color, and it's BRIGHT! It's pretty much hunter-orange. Perfect, because I wanted some obnoxious pants! Get 'em if you want great pants at a cheap price!

Thanks, BC for the help.

I bought this pack for sidecountry/resort riding, and it's good enough for the job I give it. I don't require any real avalanche safety in my pack, but I keep spare gloves, goggles, a beanie, some food, a board lock, and an insulated hydration bladder in it. It's held up just fine. It's big and sturdy enough to hold your board for a hike, but small enough to sit on the lift comfortably.

CONS: Mine didn't come with a fleece-lined pocket... bummer. Also, the material isn't the strongest, so I keep it light when packing supplies.

OVERALL: Good enough for occasional side/backcountry, great for resort.

Unanswered Question

I've been wanting to pick up a good pack for sidecountry/resort usage, and I've found a 16L in a local sporting goods store much like this one, with a hydration bladder. The only thing is, I'm not positive it's waterproofed well enough, and the bladder doesn't seem to be freeze-proof.

So is it a horrible idea to get a cheaper version of this pack with a bladder that's not freeze-proof? Or should I chuck up the cash for this one that I know will work in all conditions? Thanks guys

The Bad Lieutenant fits really well, keeps your head warm, keeps you safe, and looks good on the mtn. You don't get that "my head is huge" look either. And with an audio option, it gets even better. What more do you want from a helmet? Oh, ventilation... That's a negative. Oh well, if your head sweats, take it off. Works fine for me! Good overall, get one.

I got these on sale last year and used them in all conditions (bright light, dim light, real blizzards, fake snow-making). They held up to everything well, and would rarely fog up.

The only cons I found are in dim lighting, when colors and shadows are really hard to make out; night boarding with these is pretty perilous.

Awesome boots. I got these 2 months before my first trip of the season. I wore them a few times (maybe 3 or 4) around the house to get my feet used to them, but they actually fit great the first time I tried them on! When I got to the mountain and strapped in, they definitely performed! Held tight to my feet, didn't hurt at any point, and stayed warm all day and night. Get 'em while they're hot!

These are my first bindings; they're great, but I can see some minor flaws already. The clip on the toe strap came loose on me and actually broke free on a run. I thought it was a freak accident, then the opposite foot's toe strap started sticking.
On another note, the bindings handle well. Turning is easy, and when the straps are holding tight, they keep great control. Get them if you don't have the money for higher priced bindings. They won't let you down... if you keep a screw driver in your jacket.

The 2008 Malolo 162 was my first board, and having only rode rentals before it, I was obviously amazed. It performed great; I first rode North Carolina with it. We had decent conditions the first few days, a little ice here and there, but the Malolo actually handled well even on the ice! It surprised me a lot. I could race down the mtn, blowing past my buddies and spinning with ease. The last couple of days there, we caught 10" of powder. I didn't think the board could handle any better, but when I got first tracks in deep pow between trees, it felt like I could die happily.

Overall, the board handles well, turns and spins easily, and runs smooth and fast. No jitters for me; all fun on the mtn. Get one!
