Why Lamar?

Are you getting a good deal or something?

Eeeewww. Lamar is the absolute bottom of the barrel pieces of garbage! Should only be bought if you go out once a year!

I have lamar boots and there totaly normal/fine. I'm not sure if I would trust a board or bindings to last from lamar but as far as boots go they make normal boots /shrug.

Lamar is a pricepoint company that means cheap materials, next to no quality control, and cheap prices. I would never put my trust in a product made from their crappy factories. Its cheap for a reason so people can get into snowboarding for relatively next to no investment if you are only going like 10 times its fine if you're actually a frequent rider invest in real gear.

If price is the issue, put your money towards last season stuff (or 2 season stuff).

I agree. Get used name brand stuff before you consider cheap new stuff. Lamar is ok for beginners or kids who are going to outgrow their gear quickly, but it won't last long and probably won't offer too much comfort.

I got a used Rome Anthem board for $250 and a brand new last season Rome Design for $330. The price difference isn't so bad that you should sacrifice quality.

When it comes to LTD/Lamar you get what you pay for. Resist the temptation of low cost. There are a lot of good deals in shops and online for higher quality rides and gear. You will not be disappointed!

If they fit your foot, then great (I didn't even know Lamar made boots). But the fact of the matter is their boards are not very good. They have their place (not everyone can afford $300+ retail on a board) but its just not of comparable quality to what else is out there.
