Default Mitts/Helmet/Goggles?

Burton Gore-Tex Mitts (Closeout) - Snowboard Shop > Men's Snowboard Outerwear > Snowboard Gloves & Mitts > Snowboard Mitts

Burton Gore-Tex Mitts... Has anyone had any experience with these? I'm really looking for something to keep my hands completely dry. The gloves I used while I was riding rentals were like cloth and absorbed liquid, and then they froze hard in the cold... it sucked. Will these be all right?



Smith Holt Snowboard Helmet - Snowboard Shop > Protective Snowboard Gear > Snowboard Helmets > Men's Snowboard Helmets

Smith Holt Helmet... Has anyone used this before? I just want something over my head for when I catch an edge... something more than a beanie.



Smith Goggles Smith Fuse Goggles

Smith Fuse Goggles... It's lucky that I happened to like the Smith helmet too because thee goggles are supposed to fit the curve of Smith helmets. So... has anyone tried these before? I'm pretty sure I'm gonna replace the lense, but are the goggles nice and sturdy?

Thanks!!!!!

Gloves - Doesnt really matter, just make sure you read some reviews because i got Burton Under Glove Goretex gloves and wisely listened to the reviews that said to buy 1 size larger than normal because they were so tight...if i had gotten medium rather than large i wouldnt fit into them right...

Helmet and Goggles you really shouldnt buy without trying first, goggles less so if you know they work wit that helmet. Just like you should never buy boots without trying them on first you shouldnt buy a helmet without trying it and the others on first. Every helmet, and every brand fits just a LITTLE bit different..i tried on 3 RED helmets, 3 giro helmets, and a few Smith helmets...75% of them were uncomfortable, either not sitting flat on my head or scrunching my ears in or gouging me somewhere inside the helmet...out of the other 25% it just came down to looks and price...i liked the look(and audio ability) of the RED Hi-Fi so i ran home and bought it online...

If you buy a helmet and its uncomfortable, you wont use it. And having a misfitting helmet does you no good...there's a reason companies make like 5-10 different types...to fit different shape heads.

I'm gonna try pretty hard to find the helmet and goggles, so if I do, I'll tell you if they fit together. Maybe I'll send some pics, too. Whatever you want.
