I just don't think sizing up is a good idea. If you can order a pair in both sizes, do it and keep the size that fits. Make sure you can return the pair that doesn't fit.

It'd be great of the...

Sorry not /thread

No. Don't do that. That's like telling someone to wear thick socks if a pair of boots is too big. I wear a size of boot, that, fits a medium and a large version of a particular...

Ummm ... The sizing chart really doesn't help, since her boot is a 5.5. According to the Union Sizing chart either a small or medium binding would fit her boots.

I've found almost all binding...

The RFL will have traditional lacing again for the 2013-14 season. Looks like their speed lace system was another failed experiment. I bought two pairs and returned both because the gap in the...

Why should boards be made in BC, Colorado or Austria?

Dubai is no more random than having boots or bindings made in China. Or having outerwear that is made in Mexico (I think there used to be...

Agreed. The carbon footprint is a lot larger in Dubai. I'm not really speaking to Arbor's eco-conscious philosophy, but more a CODB thing. Shipping is easier. Buying and selling materials and...

They moved production to Dubai because the Élan factory where Arbor had boards made shut down. It is now in bankruptcy. Apparently, it was started by a couple of guys from the Elan factory. Here's a...

Take it in and have evo do it. It'll cost a couple of bucks, but unless you've got experience, they'd probably do a better job. You could also try Mountain to Sound Outfitters, Snowboard Connection...

Yeah. I'm not a fan of the Goodride's flex rating system or any rating system for that matter. It think it is too arbitrary. Since I'm a fairly big guy many boots that claim to be be stiff do not...

Which Darko model are you looking at? There is a speed lace and a traditional lace. BTW, the Darko SPDL has two zones (The Good Ride has incorrectly listed as a aingle zone). I was impressed with the...

I'm sure you will notice a big difference without the insoles. It might end up being too loose though and you could get a fair amount of heel lift. You might also experience foot pain without any...

I'm not sure this is entirely correct. Boots with 1:1 lasting have different size shells and liners for half and half sizes. Others, which tend to be lower end and less expensive, have the same size...
