    Too many to list now.
    Dogfunk.com for me. They have a better return policy than Walmart if you catch my drift.

    i'm rockin the cartels myself, JBerry convinced me to spend the coin and get em last year. Haven't regretted it one second. They're awesome, so adjustable. I have the Moto boots as well, I'm not a huge fan of them, but I think mine are a few years older. They may have a better design by now. My problem is my short/stocky build which means my huge calves have to fit in the boot, which also translates to not being as tight around my ankles.

    The goggles are cool as shit, but do they still fog? :D

    That makes me very confident in deciding for the cartels. I'm very glad to know this, as far as boots are concerned I might have to look a little deeper into boots. After I guess the old term you get what you pay for is very true in the snow world.

    The goggles are awesome and as far as I know the lenses are sealed with a anti fog coating permanently introduced into the lens itself which is then sealed over with another lens on top of it (Probably the photo chroming lens itself). So if they do fog it's going to be very minute and only for a second, my spy's had fantastic anti fogging tech in it and I kept those SOB's on all day long!

    The boots for me were cheap, I needed something at the time. Its my build that makes em uncomfortable, they're probably pretty good otherwise. The toes are pretty fat on em, getting into the cartels can be a pain in the butt, I've only done it standing up a couple times. Just my .02, I'm no expert by any means. I just waxed my board for the first time... LoL I used to ride alot when I was younger but always rented my shit.

    I've never waxed my board in the 5 years I have owned it. Haha I guess that makes me a crappy snowboard owner. My boots are good but they keep me cold more often then not and I can't have that honestly, staying warm while being out there is paramount. Strapping up my custom bindings are a PITA also I agree 100% with you.

    I can almost say the same thing. I've had a board for probably 6 years now, was a gift, but when I moved to Cape Cod, the mountains were just a little too far away for me, so I never rode it. Fast foward 5 years and here I am last season, buying the gear and finally riding again. I only got two days last year though (no wax :p), this year will be different as long as the wife doesn't get tired of me always being gone.

    My girlfriend is going to be constantly bitching about me going snowboarding too. Oh well, she knew what kind of guy she got with, I am going to be going up a lot this year. I am going to try to go at least three times to Tahoe.

    Hey that's a nice board btw, I like simplistic graphics, I like the Sherlock Blackjack board I am looking at, very simple, all black. I have no need for fancy over the top graphics. The top of my current bullet board is all black.

    God I want those goggles... ughhh decisions...

    I could say the same thing about those very expensive chef knives you use to cut meat with in one of your previous threads :stirthepot:

    I realized $350 of the money I am spending I got for free. The rest $ wise is on me. So would you like that right now or right now later????? :D

    smith I/o goggles?? I have two sets of high quality goggles right now, I just like the ones that have some tech integrated into them. I know smith is doing something with their goggles and mod live from recon instruments as well.

    o_O -_- Hey hey, I those things are not being discounted anywhere! I picked them up for the price that the normal Zeal Z3 GPS ones go for, which is pretty darn good if you ask me. A lot better then $650 :D
