I bought these for my son. He's 5. The 6T fit him a bit large, as I expected, but it's not a problem, and they'll fit him next year. The zipper is three-quarters the length of the mitten, so they're easy to get on and off; plus, at the end of the day, I can get them to dry faster by opening the zipper. The gauntlet fits over or under a jacket. My son has worn them both skiing and snowboarding on the bunny slopes and while playing in the snow, and he hasn't complained of cold hands. He loves the blue color.
I bought the smallest version of this board for my son when he was not quite 3 years old. The smallest sizes have grippy pads that your kid can stand on without bindings. The tow rope (not included) attaches on the end, and then you can pull your kid around. My son's 4 now, and he fits in Burton's smallest boots and bindings. He can ride a very low-angle hill now (with help, of course).
Bought for my husband for xmas. He had the older version of these, and they eventually got rips where he gripped his snowboard edge when hiking. The gauntlet on the newer ones is shorter, but they still seem to give enough coverage. They keep his hands warm and dry, as you'd expect from Gore-Tex products.
I bought the 90cm for my son, who is 2.5 years old right now ... having not used it, all I can say at this point is that it's tiny and cute. I imagine we'll tow him around the backyard with it this winter. It does come with Burton's Learn To Ride lift ticket & lesson deal. I'll update this review after we get a chance to use it.
I originally bought Montrails off this site for my husband (because I love my Montrails so much), but they were way too narrow for his C-width ape feet (and BCC doesn't sell wides). So we tried these. I bought about a half size up, and they fit him just right out of the box. No hot spots or problem areas. He loves how they look and feel, and they look sturdy, though he hasn't had an opportunity to test them on the trail yet. I considered heavier-duty all-leather Asolos but decided these'd be more versatile. They should work for long hikes on rough terrain and moderate backpacking trips. Bonus: these weren't made in China.
I hadn't bought new snowboard bindings in a long long time. I'm so glad I updated this year. I've only had the chance to use these a few times this season, but I can't believe the difference. I go faster, turn better and with less effort, and feel more attached to and in sync with my board. More control, more response. Work great with the Emerald Boots. No heel lift, no discomfort. So far, so good.
