kjoanna So eventually I've got Burton Emerald boots and after trying about 5 pairs of boots (Salomon, Burton, Vans) I highly recommend buy a boots in shop, first try them, DO NOT BUY boots online without putting your feet into boots first

Thanks for help

markee You shouldn't restrict your boot choices (or any equipment choice, for that matter) to only one brand. One brand cannot cover all the different types of feet that everyone has i.e. fat, skinny, narrow heel, wide toebox, etc....

kjoanna @ EvoKnvl:
Thanks so I'll get that one.

I know its maybe hard to believe but here is no choice of snowboard gear. I will be happy if I try any of Burton boots coz they might not have Emerald.
I'll see if they have any bindings and try to choose something...

Thank you for you help

jimmerjammermrk Try on more than one pair of boots if possible. I'd suggest like 10+ pairs before you buy.

I've had Burtons, Flows, and Romes. I prefer the Burtons over the Flows and the Romes above either of them.

What brand would you recommend?
What about Burton Lexa or Escapade or maybe Flow Minx?
Im aware of that you guys might be not experts of female bindings but maybe you know brands which are more recommended then other.


One question about bags. Im thinking of Bakoda WHEELIE DELUXE-is it good choice? Its 160cm long but my board its only 148cm-is it ok?

Im sorry for all this questions, seems like no one can help me here in Ireland (no snow, lot of rain)

Sorry I can't help you on the bindings. As for the board bag, the 160 is fine for you board, you're just have an extra 12cm of excess space. However, you can use it to stuff clothes into and other gear...

Extremo Yeah I agree with jimbo, buy your boots first (again nothing on the stiffer side) and get a good binding that fits the boot. You should bring it to the shop and try them all on. Make the shop tech adjust each of the bindings to fit the boot. Bindings are expensive so make him work for your money. You'll benefit in the end.

jimmerjammermrk First of all, you should be trying on boots before you buy them. Look for a fairly soft boot if you're a beginner. The Opal is on the stiff side with a 7 out of 10 stiffness rating; that may not be something you want as a beginner. I'm not sure about the Burtons you mentioned, but you can look on their website to find out.

powderjet81 I dont know much about womens bindings- but generally the only difference is the names and colour of the bindings.

You could try burton missions, burton customs, or ride lx bindings to name a few. I started with ride lx and they are good bindings for beginners. Cheap, flexible and decent quality. try to find last seasons gear on sale because most times the differences from year to year are minor changes, especially on low-end bindings.

Just try on different boots you like and find some that fit properly. Then check that the bindings you want are a good fit with them (ie the back of the boot is flush with the highback).

good luck
