I absolutely love this jacket. There's something unique about its style without being too over the top. It's very comfy and affordable. It's a warm jacket with plenty of room to move and do your thing while snowboarding. It's a pretty basic jacket, but that's why I love it so much. The asymmetrical pocket and stitching is just enough to make this jacket stylie. I picked up a roasted brown and I cant think of a better jacket to buy for the money. Burton has done it again. There are no drawbacks I can think of when it comes to the Burton Lowdown.
Do you demand the best out of a snowboard? If so, I suggest picking up a 2007 Burton Vapor. You can't get a lighter Burton board. It might be a bit costly, but the ride is priceless. With all new Vaporskin and pro tip and tail added to the already lofty list of Burton materials (such as stainless steel edges, Sintered WFO base, Carbon I-beam, Multizone EGD, Pressure Distribution edges,and a negative core profile) this board is sure to turn head on the slopes. The topsheet is sooo fresh and sleek, but it does get a bit finger printy after a few touches.That's nothing a quick cloth rubdown wont fix. This year they even added a 163W for you lagre footed riders. Now every one can float on air no matter what size foot you have. I look forward to riding this board for years to come. See you out there!!!
What is there to say about the Cartel that hasn't been said before? This binding does it all at only a fraction of the cost of other higher-end bindings. Burton steps things up every year with all their products and just when you think things are perfect, they push further. This year's Cartels come with tool-free adjustments, and super cushy bases along with everything else the previous Cartels came with. I love the colors this year as well. They are soo responsive and comfy. I look forward to riding these bindings for years to come. The only drawbacks I noticed was the backs tend to wiggle side to side a bit. Other than that... these bindings are perfect.
