Review: K2 Pilchuck Backside Kit

Intended Purpose: The Pilchuck backpack keeps it short and sweet and is designed for short hikes or sidecountry adventures.  It is ready for backcountry and comes with a aluminum probe and rescue shovel.  All you need is your beacon. Size: The Pilchuck kit is 11L, definitely a smaller backpack for only the essentials.  When I took the backpack splitboarding, I could fit in a shovel, probe, beacon, water, skins...

Review: Bern Muse Helmet

Intended Purpose: The Bern Muse helmet offers up a women's specific low profile, comfortable fitting protective lid with a visor to protect your head on the mountain.

My Review of Electric EG.5 Goggle

Originally submitted at Evogear The Electric EG.5 Goggles have all the same style and features as the EG1, however, they won’t swallow your face. The EG.5 is a smaller frame for those of you with a smaller face. Often this goggle works great for women. You will love the EG.5’s cylindrical lens that helps eliminate fog and the lightweight contoured frame which looks and feels great on. Electr...

A review of my Snowboard Gloves

When I first learned how to snowboard, I would only wear gloves because I could never ratchet up my bindings with mitts. Well eventually that changed and now I prefer mitts unless it's spring riding when I wear pipe gloves. I usually buy new gloves each year, this year I plan to pick up some Defcon gloves and another pair of POW gloves. All of my 3 sets of gloves, I have spent a lot of days in each of them so I...

I have a couple designated for snowboarding but I wear the majority during the winter when it's freezing out and I need to keep warm. Here's my collection of beanies (tuques): Burton Headphone About it:...

Traveling in style

One of the best investments I've made is travel luggage. Depending how often you travel with your gear, you need to get your gear there safely through the airlines. It is wise to get good luggage because guess what...it lasts! Before I picked up new luggage this year, I used my Dakine board bag for the last couple seasons of traveling. I decided on Burton for my luggage, I love their soft goods and the luggage is ...
