I really like my Ride DH, its fun and can handle all different terrain. I am 5 foot 9 and 140 pounds and I ride a 155cm DH. I found that it works well as a park board but the length that I purchased for myself I have a lot more fun hitting backcountry booters on it. The swing weight is a little more than what I like but I also just suck at spinning anyway. The slimewall edge works great for reducing vibration, and helping you to not catch your edge on rails. My main complaint with the slimewall is that I had a pretty good impact to the side of my edge, most boards wounld have just had a dent I feel, but the softness of the slimewall allowed my edge to totally snap and get jammed into my base and the board is now ruined. At the same time it was a pretty intense impact to the edge. Also this years model has pop sticks that are like fishing rods running the length of the board. they give the board great pop, you can ollie over slow signs like never before.
I got this jacket and was a little concerned with the 10k waterproof rating, but it has no failed me yet. I have had no issues with a wet jacket and the removable powder skirt is a great fit compared to some other jackets I have worn. I Love pockets and this jacket has plenty of them There is a goggle wipe inside the goggle pocket and the phone pocket on the chest rules, it is in a spot that I doubt I will land on and brake my phone. My main complaint is that there are NO WRIST GAITERS which is a must for me, luckily I had a friend fabricate and sew some in for me. Also the liner is short with long sleeves it doesn't really look to great when its worn outside of the jacket. Overall though I am impressed and really like this jacket.
These puppies rule, I have never worn Volcom before and I fell in love instantly. They might as well be totally waterproof nothing has made it past the 20k v-science material on these. We have even had a little bit of some warm slushy days of urban riding here in slc and I haven't had a soggy ass ever in these. The glove pocket is great it also holds a PBR tall boy really well to. Only issue is if you like the flared pant bottom style the bottoms get little tears pretty easy but if you keep the pant protected by your highback no worries. These pants look, feel and perform great I highly recommend them.
