Typically crappy beginner rental stuff. I've know they're trying to step it up and become a reputable snowboard company, and I know they started using Magnetraction in their high-end stuff, but I haven't heard anyone say they've made it yet. Beyond the rental shop board I rode the first time out I've never ridden their stuff, but I feel comfortable advising you to look elsewhere.

I'm sure they'll be perfectly legit soon, but you're better off looking at more established snowboard companies for now.

i believe he was asking about their outerwear not boards. In that case, i got a fairly cheap rossi jacket at the beginning of last season and its held up well. Its very warm and comfy. Again ive only had it for one season so i dont really know how it will hold up in the long run, but its so far so good.

Rossignol = Mervin = Quiksilver

Although Quiksilver sold Rossignol (for half the original purchase price) to Chartreuse & Mont Blanc (partially owned by Jarden (K2)) this summer.
