  • Really appreciated this round-up of womens splits! This year, I decided on purchasing a whole new setup. I looked very closely at the Prior Slaylok, but as a woman standing at 5’8, I thought the 156 size board was going to be a touch short. All the features were spot-on, but I suspected sizing down from my current 159 would be a bit too drastic…[Read more]

  • Whoa.. are you guys touring in hardshell pants? I’d find that extremely hot. I tour in softshell pants in all conditions, whether 0 degrees or minus 15 Celsius. Unfortunately I’ve found no products which offer bibs for softshell pants for women. If anyone does find such a product, I sincerely welcome you to share.

  • Female bib pants? Those are hard to find.. extremely hard if you’re looking for a softshell version.

    I have had a number of successful seasons on the Arcteryx Gamma SK Pant. Where the SK version is specific to having wider legs to accommodate ski and snowboard boots and has gators. I wear them all year round in midwinter and spring weather and…[Read more]

    Hey scotthaggarty – Just noticed your post. Not sure if you ended up getting the AMF yet, but I can offer my two cents.

    The carbon will most definitely affect the feel of this board. I realize the first thing people think of with carbon, is the increased weight savings, which makes sense for those long days. But I would warn people to consider…[Read more]

  • Increasing 5cm from your resort board to your backcountry board is pretty typical since you’re factoring in (ideally) powder conditions and the added weight of a pack.

    Looking at the profile of this board, the early rise tip and rocker profile will actually help this board feel/ride like its a shorter board. I ride the Prior AMF 159 (a 155…[Read more]

    Perfect timing on this topic, as I am debating about searching for new boots myself.

    I’ve ridden two versions of Burton Supreme until I packed them out. They were pretty decent, a little on the soft side, but I liked the speed zone lacing for top and bottom. I was happy with the quality but suffered from heel lift even with the addition of the j…[Read more]

  • Barrows, I do see your point. But I think it can be extremely overwhelming to sift through hundreds of posts if I’m just looking for a review of a womens boot, as compared to every other preferred mens boot out there.

    I’m not suggesting that all females need to converse within this one section of the site. It’s just an easier way to find…[Read more]

  • Barrows, I’m looking forward to your gear review of Patagonia women’s briefs. I’d really be interested to hear your thoughts on the product based on its size and technical specifications as noted on the official website. We’ll just post it in the Gear section of the site…

  • Great to see the responses. I touched base with bcrider so hopefully we can start our discussions under a new section on the forum in the coming days.

    I’d love to hear what the ladies are rockin’ out there too. And speaking of.. I’m already looking for new snowboarding boots. More to come.. but I think these discussions would be better placed in…[Read more]

  • I’d like to think any premium heli operation would have a slew of gear for you to use. That includes powder skis and powder boards, even day packs and avy gear. And for the cost of the trip.. gear is usually included and shouldn’t come as extra cost at all. Is this not the case with the resort you’re using?

    I’d opt for a regular inbounds board or…[Read more]

  • YES! regardless of skiing or snowboarding, an airbag will in no doubt increase your survival chances since it will keep you above a slide. i have a very good friend that reps one of the leading brands of the airbag systems. the statistics are ridiculous when comparing non-use of airbags vs. airbags. if anything.. i would suggest it even more to…[Read more]

  • ARKANA replied to the topic Prior AMF Review in the forum Prior 11 years, 5 months ago

    I would recommend the 162. I spoke with a Prior rep for quite some time on two occasions about my riding style, what did/didn’t like about my current splitboard, what type of terrain I’d be riding as well as board size I’d normally ride. They REALLY know what they’re talking about. So I took their word when they told me I wouldn’t be disappointed…[Read more]

  • Is anyone with the Blazes experiencing significant wear on his/her boots? Either on the sides or the rear?

    I have a lot of wear on the back of my boot and on both sides of each boot around the ankle where the bindings dig into the boot and tear the leather. Others have experienced the same (see earlier post here: http://splitboard.com/talk/viewtop&hellip;[Read more]

  • Thanks everyone for your replies. Having camped not on snow, but in huts during the winter I’m not sure what may/may not work in terms of the gear I have and/or use.

    The sleeping pad I have is the MEC Kelvin 3.8 Sleeping pad which has an R Value of 3.2. In addition I plan to purchase at least one (or even two) foamies which will add another 1-2…[Read more]

  • I’m planning a 5 day trip in the Whistler-area backcountry around end of December and am deciding which sleeping bag to use. Options:

    1. MEC -12 degree Celsius mummy bag – SYNTHETIC
    2. Western Mountaineering Summerlite 0 degree Celsius – DOWN

    I’d like to take the WM down bag mostly for the significant weight saving and packing compression. To…[Read more]

  • The model I saw in store was the Mojo SD.. not Mojo RX

  • I was in-store looking at this year’s very brand new Voile Mojo and noticed this exact problem. There was a significant gap between the ski halves in “board mode”. At least 2 to 3 mm.. so much so that if I put my eye right up to it, I could see right through the other side..like I was looking through a peep hole. I also noticed the skis were not…[Read more]
