Default Snowboarding gear ultimate thread. 2014.

My intentions are to find the gear that almost everyone can agree are the best bang for the buck


I think that the main questions that beginners ask on this forum, or search on the internet is : "What gear should I get ?"

There are reviews all over the internet, but not a consolidated one.

Another problem I see is that people usually come from different genres and price ranges.

with that said, I hope to make an "ultimate thread" for everyone. "best" gear changes every year, so this will probably be accurate by the year.

Please comment with what you think should be added !

Help everyone save time.

I've read along some forums, and from what I heard or read, many people heavily vouch for unionbindings. as for price point, I cannot say what is average or cheap. I hope someone can chime in on this

"Snowboarding shoes"? Really?

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

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.

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.

Its pointless and riddled with a basic flaw of presumed common environment...

The ultimate gear...would presume some common or a limited set of parameters...

however...snowboarding takes place in different environments/climates/snow conditions/terrain. Thus the ultimate for Baker is different than the ultimate for Alpine Valley verses Park City verses Valdez.

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.

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