A total upgrade to the fan goggles I used to have. When hiking and having sweat coming down my brow any other goggles would have fogged but these did not. I have a medium to large face and felt that these did just fine. Get the sensor mirror for flat light, they will not be enough for bright days. I am recommending these goggles to every one I know. They are probably not needed if your not earning some turns however. Btw i dont notice any problems with the fan, you can hear it a little but not a problem.
This probe is awesome with the little black cones at the top of each segment makes this significantly faster to assemble than poles with out it. Look for those cones on any probe you buy. I also love the rough sandpaper grip so that your hand does not slip on the probe while it is in use. You can throw this out on the snow, grip and rip and in a few seconds your ready to start the rescue. For the price this probe is awesome, best out there.
Im going to continue with the fragile reviews. I ride a lot of Burton stuff and it is good but you do pay a premium for the name. The top clear coat flakes off really easily and the bottom scratches with not to much effort. That being said i love how the board rides and can handle a little bit of everything. I like to ride big mountains and powder and this board fits in well for those resort days when i dont need to use the split board. It is stable enough to handle groomers and some ice or mixed snow conditions. I would recommend this board but give it a 4 out of 5 because of the clear coat flaking off so easily.
Finding stiff boots has always been a task. Other than using AT boots this is the best way to go! They are for Freeride now Freestyle so your not going to like them if you go into the park or ride groomers. I wear a size 14 but they only go to 13 and a 13 works just a little tight on the big toe. They fit true to size i would say
If you get off the groomer or out of the park and into some pow and need to strap in good luck. I had a pair of these for one day and sent them back. I found myself digging a hole to pull the back plate back to get my foot in. It was not a good experience. Some people love them and I donât get how they could, kind of a cult following.
This is a solid beacon for the price its probably one of the cheaper things that can save our life or your buddies life. It works well and is easy to use, anyone who understands flux lines can use this beacon. That being said please get some training before you take this out and trust yours or anyone else life on it. If you go to a place to train (many resorts have them) there is probably someone there who will give you the quick 10 min run down on what to do.
