Dont feel like we are defending EVO. We are not defending them and trying to prove you wrong. We are just trying to understand more, with the lack of info given in the 1st post. Without all the info, we come to our own conclusion. Therefore, we assume that you dont know what your talking about. Which now, we just made an Ass U Me

This was multiple people who verified these things and I just ended up with one big hassle trying to get them to fix their mistakes.

Look I really am happy some people had a good experience, I don't wish anyone other than a great experience...just putting my thoughts out their that I got treated like crap and I'm a obviously a bit frustrated with it all and will never be buying anything from evo again regardless of how good their sales are.
why is it that all kids today think that any company with recognition is suddenly evil, and employs only evil people?

I mean, yea there are some companies that - through some tricky wordy and over time , they build up tricky sales tactics.. but, if you do your research no adays you should be fine. It's not like even 10!!! years ago that you COULD NOT research a company all that easily.

As far as the stuff you ordered. Come on man. I doubt the evo people intentionally lied to you. They probbaly said the burton boots SHOULD have the same footprint.

Half of those people there have no idea what the hell they are talking about...
half of the people at MOST shops have NO idea what they are talking about...

my local shop is rather well known, their ads are plastered all over including some televised competitions.

You know what? Most of the people there know nothing...

Is this board good for all mountain? Answer: all of our boards are good for all mountain. UH, like this board that says STRICTLY for parkrats?

gotta do your own research today. People dont get paid enough to really specialize in these products. The products are sold WAY too cheap for that. Even if they pay '.......ok.........' bottom line is, people dont really want to try anymore until they are in the upper rungs of business. Everyone thinks they are special and everything is beneath them. So why try until they hit 'where tey should be'

Just research your stuff next time. You could have easily googled the products you bought elsewhere first...

and buying boots online is a fools gamble....

This thread sucks. Basically just complaining about an inconvenient experience. Nothing shady happened, nobody dropped the ball, it just took a phone call/email or two to get it resolved to everyone's satisfaction. Sounds like it was handled just fine, even if not above and beyond in this instance. Move on.

First off for those of you stating purchase local, realize that not everyone lives in an area with stores that keep a large selection of snowboard gear. I live in Texas as well. EVO has such sweet deals at times and a great return policy that it's hands down worth the chance to try a boot from them and have the protection of their return policy. I purchased a set of boots from EVO for my wife, but they didn't fit well so I immediately initiated a return. The return shipment was still on the way to them when I found a pair of bindings I'd been looking for on their site. They were the lowest price around, so I contacted them via phone. They checked the other online retailer for price and availability and then placed the order for me (with price match plus 5%) for those bindings with the refund credit I was going to get from the boot return. Best of all, my bindings were shipped before they even received the boot return.

I'd say that customer service is above and beyond what any other retailer will do in that same situation.

EVO has a customer for life on this end.

Ordered from EVO several times w/ no issue. Even when they shipped the wrong item they corrected it w/in a couple minute phone call and sent me a label to return and even offered me a discount to make up for it.

I'm not sure why you think they should pay to ship back the exact products you ordered unless I'm misunderstanding something here. Seems like standard return policy. Sounds easily avoidable if you actually researched the items you were buying yourself beforehand and not depended on somebody else. You are posting on a forum that has sections dedicated for those types of questions....

Thumbs up

You know what guys I see the light now, THANKYOU
I was lost now I'm found. I was wrong. Evo treated me like royalty. Best company in the industry. My bad, please forgive me, especially coincidentally all the evo family from Washington that might even work there...It was very stupid of my to post about my experience. You guys have more than proved I'm just an A-hole looking for attention and I appreciate that. MUCH LOVE

Good thing I'm still rich, I still live in the nicest city in NV and I still don't work and I still get to go ride everyday...so have fun today, I'll be at squaw thinking about all you haters
