Review: Sandbox Classic Brain Bucket Helmet

Intended Purpose: The Sandbox class brain bucket is the original sandbox helmet with a thin and soft EVA liner for a comfortable, low profile fit.  The brain bucket helmet is non-certified. Appearance: When I first got the brain bucket, the purple was a bit bright for me but I've grown to love the color over this winter.  The overall apperance reminds of a softball helmet but I like the brim design and the brigh...

Review: Bern Baker Hard Hat Audio Helmet

Intended Purpose: The Bern Baker Hardhat offers a comfortable fitting helmet with audio capacity so you can rock out to tunes on the mountain.  The Hard Hat offers some protection from hard hits but it is not EN/AST/CPSC certified. Appearance: I'm a huge fan of Tj's artwork and when the drawing on the Tj's helmet caught my eye I knew that I was won over immediately.  It's a plain black matte helmet with a almost...

Review: Pom Pom "Pocket Rocket" Rub-on Wax

Intended Purpose: The Pocket Rocket Rub-on wax is an all-temperature rub-on wax that you can carry with you on the slopes or keep by your board for those days when you forgot to wax your board but are going out to shred anyway. Smell: Pom Pom wins me over at the smell test, hands down the best smelling wax I've ever used.  The rub-on wax smells like strawberry goodness and everyone I've had smell it is amazed it'...

Review: Siege Stealth Earbuds

Intended Purpose: The stealth earbuds are meant for listening to the tunes while snowboarding and not worrying about lower quality or tangled cords.  The people behind Siege Audio are snowboarders and so it's no surprise that these earbuds can be taken on and off the mountain. Sound: I'm no expert on sound quality but just a snowboarder who listens to music when riding.  Compared to my skullcandy headphones the ...

Review: Pom Pom "Wacky Tacky" Traction Wax

Intended Purpose: The Wacky Tacky Taction wax is meant to be applied on your topsheet for no-slip when you are skating off the chairlift or when you need extra grip on your freestyle grabs.  I tested it with the chairlift, putting it in on my board in the spot where I put my free foot when riding off the chairlift.  My Capita Ultrafear topsheet can be a little slick and I figured this would be a good time to try it...

Review: Burton Zoom Pack

Intended Purpose: The zoom pack is a photographer's backpack with customized compartments for camera equipment and a vertical board carry. I'm in no way a real photographer but wanted something to carry some of the camera equipment I do have and be able to travel with it without carrying camera equipment. It suits both of those needs for me. Size: The Burton Zoom pack is 28L and weighs 4.5lbs.  I've found tha...

Review: High Sierra Single Padded Snowboard Bag

Intended Purpose: The High Sierra single padded snowboard bag is ideal for a riders first snowboard bag to fit their one setup for the snowboard trip once or a twice a year.  I travel a good amount during the season, so having a wheeled snowboard bag with multiple compartments benefits me more. Size: The single padded snowboard bag holds up to 170cm which I found ideal for my snowboard sizes since they are below...

Review: Vholdr helmet cam

Location: A couple resorts in Colorado, mostly Steamboat. Snow Conditions: I've used the Vholdr cam on snowy days, low visibility and sunny bluebird days. Size:  It fits in the palm of my hand.  I could hold it in my hand and ride with it like that.  Light and small.  The best part is that's exactly what the camera is, there's no wire or anything that you need to carry with you.  That small camera is it for...
