This was my 1st venture into Volcom outerwear, and I have to say I'm now a big fan. First things first... the jacket fits true to size. In the past, I've always bought size large in everything to run things a little baggy, but I ended up buying a size medium here (in addition to the Bjorn pants). The jacket is loose fitting, but not "thug" baggy. I considered going the Goretex route, but I've taken this 20/20 jacket out in freezing rain and mixed conditions, and it is bombproof. I like to layer up accordingly, and it keeps me dry in all kinds of temps --- it vents extremely well. On the rare East Coast powder day, the ziptech jacket to pant interface saved me from getting snow on my bum, and in my pants. I'm surprised that only 1 other outerwear brand uses a powderskirt zipper because it works so well. Other nice touches... the ghetto gloves (or wrist gaiters) are great, especially for those times when you *need* to take off your gloves to adjust something... the hidden pass pocket that allows you to pull your ID out to get scanned... and uber loads of pockets, including an easy access iPod/mp3 player slot. For me, this gear has become my benchmark.

The 20/20 rating on these pants holds true. I considered going the Goretex route, but I've taken these out in freezing rain and mixed conditions, spent long days off-piste, and nothing gets through these suckers. Even after full days of sitting to strap in on spring (i.e. wet) snow, there's no swamp arse. The pants fit true to size, and have a comfortable, loose fit. The emo kids won't let you into their group, but neither will the sag hags. The vents are great to get some air, as the pants keep me extremely warm with only a baselayer underneath. The key feature on these pants for me is the ziptech jacket to pant interface --- on the rare East Coast powder day, it saved me from getting snow in my pants even after EPIC wipeout landings when my board skipped out from under me, and I dragged ass for what seemed like a mile ;) In that sense, I can also speak to the durability of the material... no shredding or wearing as of yet on the seat area. As I said in my jacket review, I'm surprised that only 1 other outerwear brand uses a powderskirt zipper because it works so well. Other neat features... a glove pocket that's not fully enclosed so they can air out, ghetto slits so that it doesn't look like you're rockin' the 80's tapered jeans look (unless you wanna go retro), and a small metal lift ticket ring for those days you're not visiting your home mountain. Again, this is my 1st time in Volcom outerwear, and I like what I've seen. I highly recommend this stuff...

Great, great, great board. I generally like park-oriented, all-mountain sticks (rode an ’07 Agent all last year), but after I demoed the Anthem (and Design) at the beginning of this season, I couldn’t help but pick it up… it was SO stable at speed as I was gunning down the trails, and you could carve the living daylights out of it. The board cut through the crud and mush when the temps were a little warm, and when the ice coast lived up to its name, it held an edge like a champ. I always felt stable and centered --- even when I got a little “stupid” on my runs, the Anthem kept me planted, and I rarely caught an edge. Comparatively speaking, the stick seems to have a lot more pop, and feels significantly lighter than last year’s model. This is definitely a worthy choice!

First, the pros... these gloves look dope. The first day, I actually got a few compliments up on the hill from several shredders as we were all strapping in. When I capped the day off at the resort's watering hole, 1 bloke actually picked my gloves up off the bar, and asked where I got them, if he could try them on, etc. From a function standpoint, the Hoss has great flexibility and dexterity. Getting into my bindings, unzipping my pit vents, etc. was a breeze --- it didn't feel like I was wearing pillows on my hands.

The cons? After 1 hour of boarding, the graphics on the palm were peeling off... and not little bits here and there. Full "checkers" from the checkerboard pattern were literally falling off --- imagine putting a post-it note on a frozen plastic bottle of water, and you get the picture.

When I trekked up to a part of the resort where there was no lift, I carried my board all the way up. After a minute or so, my hands felt like they were on the verge of frostbite. It was as if I was holding snow in my bare hands. When I got home from the hill, I noticed that my gloves were holding a lot of water. The moisture didn't penetrate into the lining or anything, but they felt pretty heavy.

The long and short... great looking gloves, great "5 finger freedom", flimsy palm graphics, limited cold insulation, and expensive. I consider myself a huge Rome fan, but IMO, these just aren't worth the money.

I love straight white colorways, but they're difficult to find. This beanie has a clean look, and the fleece ear band lining really keeps the ears warm, while the non-fleece lined acrylic area allows the moisture to wick away and breathe. The beanie runs a tad bigger than most, so keep that in mind when ordering. Recommended.
