Great pants, super waterproof, super breathable, awesome fit, heavy duty.

These pants are great. Top notch. I just wish a company, some company, any company, would reinforce the bottom cuff. The only reason I'm giving these pants 4 stars is because they wore through at the bottom. A simple piece of Cordura or Kevlar would fix that. Other than that these are great.

This is an insanely heavy duty, waterproof, and breathable. This jacket is built to last and will stand up season after season. The price is steep but the only thing that can compare to the homeschool stuff is the Burton AK, but homeschool is a lot more durable.

They hype up their Cocona tech in all their gear and it really is as breathable as they say.

If you get this jacket be sure to get the pants too because they zip together and don't let any snow in.

amazing warmth and breathability. These are somewhere between and baselayer and a fleece midlayer. They are toasty and super breathable. If you have homeschool outerwear or do a lot of touring the homeschool baselayer and midlayer stuff works better than anything i've ever used. Homeschool is by far the most breathable snowboard stuff I've ever used. I highly recommend it so you don't get wet from the inside out.

A typical day in my life includes snowmobiling to an area and then splitboarding to the top of a mountain. This requires a pant that can handle the stress snowmobiles put on it (constant freezing and defrosting, running boards that are like cheese graters on the bottom cuffs, crotches that won't rip out when lifting out a sled). It can also handle the challenges of touring (flexibility, breathability, relaxed fit). These are the best pants I've ever owned. They were built for the elements and they were built to lasts. Like the Anvil jacket their waterproof rating is actually 20k and their fit runs a bit on the large side...bottom line, these are the best pants out there. Support a quality independent company. You won't regret buying these pants.

I've been snowboarding for 19 years and have always struggled to find outerwear that meets my demands. I spend over 150 days on the snow in a typical season, many of those being on a snowmobile. This is the only outerwear that I've ever owned that not only meets, but far exceeds my expectations. It is as waterproof as gore-tex, far more breathable than gore-tex, and is more durable than anything I've ever owned. I expect to have this jacket for at least 3 to 4 seasons. I've put this jacket through hell and it keeps on running. If you can afford it...Buy this jacket. If you're looking for something a little cheaper look at the nightwitch II pullover. It's the same quality but about $60 cheaper. Also, the waterproof rating on this jacket is 20k, not 15 as advertised. The one thing about Homeschool outerwear that is a little tricky is their sizes. I usually wore XL outerwear but it seems the Homeschool stuff runs a bit bigger so I downsized to Large with their outerwear. Also, the zippers are heavy duty but a little stickier at first, they loosen up though. Their baselayer and midlayer seems to run true though....Bottom line, if you can afford it, BUY THIS JACKET....you will not regret it.

This review is conducted on the premise of the Re:Flex system. The pre Re:Flex Cartels are amazing bindings. I was expecting a step up from them. Instead I got a colossal failure. There are several major flaws to this binding. The first is what "tastercakes" described. The baseplate do not turn perpendicular to the edges like other 4x4 baseplates. You can only mount them to shift from heel to toe, they are not able to be turned 90 degrees and shifted from nose to tail...so stance options are minimal. Also, the flex pattern is very odd. The front of the binding is very stiff because there is a strip of metal running running in front of the hinged baseplate, completely compromising the whole theory behind the Re:Flex system. However, on the heelside of the baseplate there is no metal rod, so on a toeside turn the heel of the binding will actually lift upwards of an inch off the board, making it about as useful as riding without a heel strap on a normal binding. Also, the gap created when doing a toeside turn creates the perfect gap for powder to get caked in there. On almost every pow run I'll get to the bottom and feel like i'm wearing high heels snowboarding, then have to take the time to dig out all the snow. The bottom line is: Burton took a perfectly good binding and destroyed it when they created the Re:Flex system. My advice, go on craigslist or ebay and buy some old Cartels with the solid baseplate and heel cup.

I rode these pants last year with bonds national jacket. These pants are amazing! I rode them over 100 days last year and they stayed waterproof, and best of all, the bottoms didn't rip or fray out. Get these pants!

This jacket is amazing. It's only lightly insulated so you have to wear a layer or 2 under it but the 20,000 mm waterproofing is some of the best I've ever used. I rode a sample version from a shop all year last year and it was durable and the waterproofing lasted all year. I'm confident this jacket will keep me dry for 2 to 3 seasons. This is hands down one of the best jackets i've ever had.
