the other night i got an email asking what type of gear i am backing for this season. Well, i don't consider myself any type of shred scene guy anymore and i could care less about what the kids are loving these days. that being said, i still love snowboard gear and everything about it and for that reason here are my pics for the season. some of the shit might be from a couple of seasons back, but they still deserve the hype up.
board - this year, it's all about the Stepchild powder sucks 158. awesome shredstick for all around shred.
bindings - the much talked about union force, and the burton triads; easily the best bindings on the market
the almighty burton triad, awesome!
maybe its the green, but i just love these things
Boots - my trusty burton jeremy jones boots, 2 seasons on em and they are still dope
jacket - i have been waiting for ages for a good fitting camo shred jacket, and i finally found it. The quiksilver batfox! great fit, and its camo!
pants - my trust burton ronin 2l pants, easily the best pants ever. mine are shredded to shit on the heels, but i still love em. they don't make em anymore, but seriously they were the best
goggles - IS design Staple goggles - i've digged IS design since they were called iris, and the classic little bastards flick. the IS staple goggles are simple, well fitting and awesome; buy em now.
on the flipside of the coin is the SMith I/O goggle. these things are expensive, and awesome. great fit, clarity and they come with a pair of spherical lenses. if you have a couple of extra bucks lying around invest in these, as they are worth the cash.
so thats it, my pics for best product of the season and past seasons. you may agree with my opinion or not, but you know what they say about opinions
