I ordered these as a L as the last pair of pants I bought were bonfire's from 2006 which also had a waterproof rating of 20k and have held up really well.I know I haven't shrunk in the last 4 years, but bonfire is certainly cutting their pants larger. Way larger. These things were huge! They reminded me of JNCOs from about '96. The leg openings on the large must be close to 26" in circumference and the waist on the large had to be near 38-40". I know big and baggy is all the rage for park riders these days, and I like a little sag and bunch in my pants too, but this is ridiculous. I'm sending them back for a medium and depending on how big those are may even need a small. I'm 5'11" and 175lbs...so do the math.Sizing issues aside, the herringbone pattern on the pants is pretty dope, and if they are anything like the last pair of Bonfire's I owned they will keep me super dry and comfortable for several years to come and that's riding an average of 50 days a year.I gave them a three star-rating right now since its the middle of summer, and I have no true idea of how they'll perform and because the sizing is not at all true to normal sizes. I will update at some point next winter.

I bought one of these while I was instructing in Tahoe a couple of years back. For the time I had it, the board treated me really well. It was a really fun park/pipe board, really flexy and fun to butter around on. I had the 157 and went down to Kirkwood with some friends on a powder day. They couldn't fit my Phoenix 160 in their car and although I was leary about riding such a short board in the 16-18" of fresh tahoe cream that had fallen the night before, the TRS didn't disappoint. The board did really well in the pow, but once it started to get choppy I wanted my Phoenix. I managed to snap the tail all the way through that day coming down ultra tail heavy on a BS 3 on this fun hip outta one of the gullies there, but I would've broken any board landing the way I did. I don't think the little feet that stick out on the burton Cartel's helped anything either. In fact, I think they helped to focus the load and break the board. Regardless, I loved my TRS and had to go over a year and a half without one until last year just before a trip to Baker, and Hood a local shop had one left in an end of the season sale for 40% off. I couldn't resist. I'm super happy to have a TRS back in my quiver. It's a really fun board to ride just about any where.

I bought my phoenix a couple of years ago when I was living in Tahoe. It was the year the '06 model with the ship graphic, but construction wise not much has changed since then. The board is sick!!! It kills it in deep snow conditions and motors through chop with ease. I really like the unique torsion box construction that allows the board to be really stiff longitudinally, but still really torsionally flexible for tight technical turns in hairball steep terrain. I loved dropping cliffs on this board because you never had to think about keeping your weight slightly back on big snow days since the thing floats so well. Also, when conditions get skied out, the Phoenix plows through the chop like its nothing. One caveat about this board though, it doesn't like to go slow. Unfortunately, I'm living back in Michigan now and the phoenix doesn't do well on flat terrain. Its lack of sidecut demands that the board be ridden fast with large radius turns. It will skid-turn tight on the steeps, but don't expect it to carve a super tight turn especially at lower speeds. Still, when I'm riding out west, there is no other board that I want to be on than my Phoenix 160...so sick!
