I'm a huge fan of Arc'teryx.
I do tons of backcountry riding in Hokkaido and wouldn't use any other brand for backcountry. Waist to chest deep dry powder there.
All my clothing gear, from base layers to jackets, pants, and packs are all Arc'teryx. They are very pricey, but it is well worth the cost IMHO.
I also am a fan of the Burton AK line.
I also use the Burton AK Hover Jacket and Pants. Pretty good jacket and pants.

The only gear that is not Arc'teryx or Burton AK in my arsenal are the UA hood, Oakley Crowbars, a beanie and Hestra gloves.

I use a burton board, binding and boot setup when I go boarding. I use them because they haven't failed me yet. I have used other brands, but use burton because they it's right for me

hehe ever since 1991 suckah !! LoL .. anyways i've always been loyalty oriented heh probably to my own detriment .. but it must be said I'm a sucker for quality, and they never skimped on me in that regard

i'm branching out though .. giving some love to dc .. and trying to move towards more 686 gear .. probably will board a Burton till the day I die though

well that's not entirely true .. I did almost score myself a DC PBJ board for the season out of curiousity cuz I would really like to try out their stick .. seems it would suit me.

from my experience, i trust burton and their subsidiaries, like special blend, for outerwear. here's why:
1) my burton outland jacket has stood up for more than a decade with no problems except for some velcro patches coming apart, which was a cheap, easy fix.
2) special blend is a burton acquired company and therefore benefits from burton's w48 warranty program - which means they will turn over a warranty return within 48 hours of receiving the defective product. to burton doubters, when the drawstring on my 2009 special blend signature jacket pulled out, i sent it back under warranty - on the second day, a ups box sat in my doorway with my brand new 2010 special blend signature jacket - a free upgrade to a jacket with better features (hello lycra wrist gaiters!). needless to say, i will continue to support this company for years to come.

Board - Lib Tech
Jacket - Orage. Cant go wrong with 20k waterproof and breathability. And there local, out of Nelson BC
Pants - 4 square. I like sessions too.
Gloves - Swany, will not buy anything else.
Boots - Northwave. They are the only boots that dont hurt me.
Toque - Neff. No loyalties, just good design.
Goggles - Electric EG2, big feckin goggles for my big feckin head.
Vehicle - 1993 Toyota pickup 4x4. FTW

It's not so much that I think those brands are the shit cept Lib, but all my stuff is top of the line that I bought from last years stock for cheap. I think having top of the line gear is the key, rather than sticking to a brand and getting their low end stuff.
