Just got these and used them for the first time yesterday; I'm impressed! I got the short for my 154cm board and it's a perfect fit; the nose and tail clips are awesome and super easy to use. Trimming was also really easy - the hardest part was just getting them lined up perfectly to trim (if you're not sure exactly how to trim them there's a G3 video that explains it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mreB8i3JuSg)
I did a skin up to one of the glaciers on Mt. Hood yesterday and they worked great! Ascending was a dream and I could really trust these underfoot. I was surprised at how well they performed just based on the price point, but I wasn't disappointed at all! I did also get the G3 skin savers because they don't come with these ones as they do with the G3's - I'd highly recommend grabbing a pair of those.
When do you anticipate having mediums back in stock? Thanks!
Pow day on Mt. Hood!
What size binding would I need for a women's size 10 boot? I usually go men's M in bindings, but I didn't see a size chart for these.
DWR finish on the jacket gives it a nice water resistance!
Thanks to Backcountry and Holden for picking me to review this rad jacket and report back to the backcounty.com peeps on it!
REALLY cute casual jacket, kind of reminds me of a varsity letter jacket from high school but more tailored and pretty. It's warm enough to take the nip off a fall day and the DWR coating is great since I live in Oregon. The sleeves are long enough to go down past my wrists, which is awesome since I'm 5'9" and lanky. I love the length of the jacket, it's a little longer in the back so it provides decent booty-coverage. Looks equally cute with jeans or a skirt and boots. I'm a sucker for adorable lining material and this one has super cute insides! Pic attached so you can see the lining on the Orion Blue color :)
The only downside for me is that it's definitely cut for the waifier types. I love a slim fit, but if you have curves you might want to size up. I'm 5'9"/155lb and usually wear a size 10 pants/size L top in everything. I'm curvy/athletic-shaped but by no means excessively so and the size large had a really snug fit across the hips and in the boobs. I'd say it'd fit any chest well up to about a C-cup, but at a 36D it was definitely giving me a bit of boob-pancake effect. Across the hips it wasn't exceedingly tight, but another inch would have given me a lot more freedom of movement. Other than that, the tailoring is beautiful and it's super flattering!
Update: though this jacket is a little small on me, my best friend has been borrowing it and LOVES it. She's tall like me but less curvy and it fits her perfectly. She's stolen it and worn it snowboarding (though it's not necessarily a technical snowboard jacket, it performed great on a sunny nice day and held up fine to a couple of falls), out to the bars and around town and has gotten tons of compliments on it. I don't expect to be getting it back anytime soon... :)
