My Review of Defcon Protocol Digi-Camo Glove

Originally submitted at Evogear You can’t kill a classic! Defcon’s Protocol Digi-Camo Glove has been their best selling glove for five years straight. The Airoprene shell repels water and wind, while body moisture is allowed to pass through. The anti-slip palm ensures rock solid sticky paws all day long. And of course, the the Defcon Protocol Glove boasts the killer digi-camo design…. these guys not only...

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...

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 ...

2006-2007 Snowboard Review

These reviews were done over a period of time, from 05-06 season in Washington to the early 06-07 season in Colorado. Each review is judged by the same standard and for the majority of reviews I used my own boots (some exceptions). During demos I try to stick to riding the same size board of 157-159cm with the exception of some female boards which come in smaller sizes. I have the weight to back up riding a men's ...

2006-2007 Boot Review

Of all the snowboard equipment to buy, boots are the most important. If you don't have boots that fit good, your time on the mountain will not be enjoyable. I constantly tell people on forums that boots are your number #1 purchase for snowboarding. It's also the purchase where price does not matter, but Fit of the boot does. When it comes time to seek out possible snowboard boots, I narrow it to brand, then model ...

2006-2007 Binding Review

This review will be updated throughout the season as I demo and test more 06/07 bindings.

I am a freerider (I ride trees, powder, steeps, groomers, natural terrain) and I ride h...

A Review of my Outerwear Collection

I love outerwear and I usually keep most of my old outerwear...although I always try to pass on gear to friends that need it. Just in case someone forgets their outerwear or needs to borrow some, I have spare stuff in my closet. Today was the big tent sale in town so I managed to score a pair of black cargo snowboard pants by 686...my favorite outerwear company. I got them for $85 so I just had to share my good lu...
