I have to be honest and say that the only board I ever owned before this one was 10+ years old, and manufactured by a company that no longer exists. That being said, I really love this board. Rides like a boat in powder when you sit back a bit, handles the groomers with no chatter to speak of and is very playful. Found it to be a bit hooky when it was very new, I detuned it and feel more comfortable now without such a sharp edge. (That may be personal preference, but it really made a difference in my experience.) Flexible when you do jumps or ride through crud, but stable enough to get some speed without worrying.
as a female, i got the size small and they fit wonderfully. got the Mascot color. Love these for taking my dogs out, I can actually grasp a plastic bag without taking my gloves off! Perfect! Have used them as a liner on the hills too, perfect on chillier days (as these are pretty warm on their own). Stylish and vibrant without being blinding, the perfect casual glove.
These mittens are incredibly warm! I didn't realize how thin my old ones had become until I tried these on. So luxurious, I didn't need a liner whatsoever. In fact the only reason I gave these 4 stars instead of 5 was that they got a little too warm. not a bad problem though, just something to plan for. the nose wipe is ridiculously soft! the heather gray looks almost like denim, which is super stylish. I am female, got the heather/black in medium and they fit like a glove! (ha.)
love these shoes. I got the brown w/ yellow laces. haven't found them to be narrow at all, very stylish and warm. leather is super soft. I am used to Nikes that take a bit of wearing-in before they are comfy but these are already soft and flexible, which is great. I find myself wearing them around my house like slippers!
