Order a size up. I ordered a Medium, I am 5'11 155, and were everything in medium, but the arms on this were short and it fit really tight, especially for a snow jacket.
NOTE: Backcountry.com rates these pants as regular, but Airblaster advertises them as "Tailored." Trust BC.com and not AB...
Not really what I was expecting when Airblaster's Website description said "Tailored"
I am 5'11'' 155lbs and ordered the medium, and they fit like a normal semi-baggy snow pant would. Nothing about the pant was "Tailored"
No Articulated knees, no stretch in the fabric, no slim legs... I am not sure how baggy their other pants must be to consider these tailored, but compared to the other brands I tried on these were by far the baggiest of the group.
So if you are looking for a standard fitting high quality snow pant than this is a good option, but if you want a slightly more slim (not tight) pant than I would recommend Volcom Wall pant.
I am 5'11'' 155lbs 31 waist and ordered the medium.
They fit okay around the legs, probably enough room to squeeze in one thin layer to keep you warm. In general they felt too tight, especially in the crotch area.
Also they appeared to not be made to last very long, the stitching was not reinforced, and there was not stretch in the pants so I felt very restricted in movement, which probably would lead to busting the seems later on while riding or crouching.
I think they are a good idea but just poorly excuted, if they had just a little more stretch, doubled stitched seems, or slightly roomy crotch it would create a much longer lasting better fitting pant.
I would not recommend these, you would need to order 1 size up, but then it defeats the purpose of having a slim fit pant, or the legs would look all bunched up at your boots.
These suckers fit like skinny jeans.
I am 5'11 155lbs and was shocked how tight the mediums were.
The length was a little short too. So unless you want pants that fit like street pants with 0 room for layering then get a size up.
The had great stretch and seemed to be built well, but in general I didn't want something this tight. So I returned them.
I wear a medium in every shirt I own, so when I tired this medium I was shocked with how tight it was. I am sure it would have loosened up more in the water, but it was nearly cutting of circulation it was so tight.
I ordered a Large and it is still tight, but should be perfect once I get wet.
If you don't layer just enough, or have the exact waist size for these pants will have to wear a belt, there are no waist adjustments inside or out.
I don't like wearing belts on the mountain, they make the bulk of winter gear even more bulky and uncomfortable.
Also they fit a little big.
I like my snowboard clothes to look closer to street clothes, and I am 5'11 160lbs and these feel baggy on me. I thought a tailored look would be, well, more tailored...
I usually size down to small in all my airblaster gear, but wanted to go with a medium to see if they improved their fit, but it looks like they still have the same boxey fit, but honestly compared to most retailers I think Airblaster make some of the best fitting garments, I just need to find the piece that has the style I am looking for. Maybe the sissy pant?
My wife loves this board.
When she first got it she said, "If I am going to go snowboarding... At least I'll be reminded of the beach!"
So it passes the cutestness test!
It also passed my tech test, with sintered base to stay fast and strong, stable flat profile underfoot, rocker and bowled tip and tail to offer catchfree ride and nice float in the powder, and a 3 year warranty, so we don't want to worry about any issues with the board.
So a few things.
My first impression of the coat was a positive one, it fit well and looked great, but after playing with the features and inspecting the coat I decided it would not work.
I love listening to music when I ride and this coat is lacking a media pocket on the inside of the jacket, in fact, it does not have any pockets on the inside of the jacket, and only has 3 external pockets, with no port for a cord to come into the jacket.
Also the jacket's insulation is very sparse, and could easily pass for a shell.
I would say these boots are closers to 6 in stiffness. They are on the later part of the scale, but they are not so stiff that they are hard to walk in or feel like they have pain points that grab your feet.
The boot fits a little small, I wear a 42 (9) in pretty much every shoe I have and I ordered a 9 in these. I probably should be in a 9.5, but I was able to pack out the boot and heat the liner up to fit my foot well.
Note of caution, don't heat the footbed up too much as it will warp the moldable padding and you will be left with a uncomfortable footbed.
And the biggest reason why I bought the boot was for the double boa. I am infamous for taking 30 min to setup my boots just right. I never wanted boa in the past because it did not offer the customization I needed. But after using this double boa I am converted. Saves me probably 25 min of setup, and is secure for the entire day.
Great boot, DC has done a great job!
Now that I don't skate anymore and my feet don't grow, I can own a pair of shoes for years, which gets really boring; especially, when you pay $80-100 on a pair of sneakers you don't want to have to pay $100 for a new pair just to mix it up. That's why I am so glad that Volcom started making shoes! I have always loved Volcom so getting some of there shoes was a no brainer, then when I saw these were on sale (I paid $25 for these shoes with promo code and outlet pricing) it this was exactly what I was looking for. I don't expect them to last too long (thin sole and canvas shell) but they offer a great cut and unique look and help add some diversity to my shoe selection for cheap!
These are great. I got them on sale with a promo code, so they were a great price. I don't think they are worth the $60 price-point, but for $27 I paid they are great. Great length (I wanted a shorter pair of shorts), dry fast, and I guess I am helping the environment by wearing them..?
