As for boots, see if you can try on some Thirty Two Lashed. They have been my personal favourite for years, and the shop will heat mould the liners for you so they fit just right.

My only complaint about Drake's, I have found they are a little heavier but you probably wouldn't even notice.

The one place you should probably focus a little more of your budget, is on your boots. Comfortable boots can make all the difference.

How's this price? Burton Mission EST Snowboard Bindings 2011 | evo

K2 bindings are cheap and fairly good. I have the Uprise which is cheap. Also heard good things about the formulas.

Save money for the boots.
