Blueburd Have you checked out RA Optics? They are big enough to fit over glasses and they do not fog. I love mine and the price is amazing! Http://www.Boardblu.com
I bought mine for 69.99

But one could still make generalizations that having boots, bindings, snowboard, goggles, jacket and pants and helmet would be the necessary and required if one was to snowboard...and in general that would be the ultimate gear.
Agreed on parameters, so let's set some ! I've changed the thread post with the idea of putting the "ideal" functions you should look for in certain gear, I'm not sure about what lacing system this forum mainly uses, I know the boots i got for cheap from SIMS are pretty old, and that many people swear by boa.


Example: Jacket : 686 ____ .
what to add: what makes them good (functionality) ? What was the price you got it at or what is a good price to get it for ?

freshy Basically the most economical and best performing stuff for 2014 is the gear leftover from 2013 you can get at a huge discount.

Varza I was more commenting on your calling them "snowboarding shoes" when everybody else calls them boots

Yeah, sorry but I'm not sure you'll get very far. For what it's worth, I love my Smith I/OS goggles, but they're considered to be quite pricey by others.

itsaaronxd I can see that Snowboarding shoes are personal preference, but for what it's worth, I believe jackets, shells, pants, boards, and bindings are pretty different across the board when it comes to what's top notch, what's economical.


If it is a common opinion that this is a pointless thread, I won't pursue to add on to this.

Varza "Snowboarding shoes"? Really?

Pointless endeavor. All gear is personal preference + sales/discounts/getting last season's for cheap, etc all factor in.
