I'm a snowboard instructor during the winters and a uni student the rest of the time. I currently have three boards: a Burton G-Twin 142 with Lexa bindings, which I've been using for four seasons and is beautiful; a Gnu B-Nice 145 with Rome Struts, which is my powder board and a breeze to stay afloat, and a K2 VVV Rocker with Burton Scribes, which is the funnest set up I've ridden to date. I'm an all mountain girl, and when I get a day off teaching I stay out til the last chair.
I haven't taken these on snow yet, but they're pretty comfortable and easy to move around in, so no issues there.
I'm only 5 foot tall but wear an Australian size 12, so my hip measurement for this pant was (weirdly) in the L-XL range, but my inseam was an XS. I decided to go for an XL Short because I wanted the extra room and length to move around comfortably - however when I tried them on they were sitting about 5cm out from my waist - I could also lose a couple of cm from the length to stop dragging. If I had have known the fit before ordering them I would have downsized to a L Short, but I'm still happy to ride with these - I just need a belt!
Received this in the mail last week - it is BEAUTIFUL. I chose this jacket for it's fit, waterproofing and awesome colours (i got the Hotstreak Colourblock). I ride mainly in Australia, so I need the Gore-tex!
I'm 5 foot tall and usually wear a size 12 womens (australian sizing) in clothes - I could have fit into the Medium of this jacket but chose to go with the Large for the extra room for layering and comfort. It's definitely a bit long on my (mid thigh) but I usually have to tuck up my jackets, so this doesn't bother me.
The jacket has 6 pockets all up, so plenty of room for storage. The extra length in the sleeves plus the wrist gaiters is much appreciated as well. The material around the chin is soft, and sits high enough to keep the cold out without suffocating you - only issue: the hood isn't separate, so once I get on snow I might not be able to cover my neck and chin as well. We'll see!
All around happy with purchase and I can't wait to try it out on snow!!
