Gear Reviews of different winter, summer, indoor and outdoor sports equipment. We’ll let you know what’s worth spending your money on and what isn’t.

Though every component of a snowboarding set-up is important, a good pair of snowboarding boots is, perhaps, the most important individual aspect after your snowboard. Of course, you need a solid pair of bindings to hook yourself on and...
The Burton Custom Flying V Snowboard is one of Burton's most popular snowboards and will no doubt be the one to beat in 2013. This board is Much Awesome.
There is a reason that these bad boys were named the Fireside pants by the wonderful people over at Burton – they're absolutely cozy.
Need a new stick but don't want to break the bank this winter? If that sounds like you, then you should consider adding the 2014 Head Daymaker DCT Snowboard to your quiver. Designed for all-mountain destruction, the Daymaker will get...
The Jeep Cherokee was one of Jeep’s true icons back in its heyday and arguably the originator of modern SUV design. Jeep canceled the model back in 2001, replacing it with the Liberty. While the Liberty has had its fans, it never quite reached the legend status of the Cherokee.
With so many different brands and designs on the market today, it can be hard to find a solid pair of simple snowboarding goggles. Back in the old days, goggles had few purposes: they kept your eyes shielded from the elements without fogging up and without otherwise blocking your lines of sight. Today, it seems like the bulk of goggles around are loaded with features that, while they sound cool, don't really do much. That's why I love the Beefy Goggles from VonZipper – they're simple, functional, and durable. Nothing fancy about them.
Dreams of fresh untracked pow making you anxious for the 2014 winter season? Well then get stoked on the 2014 Burton Freebird Splitboard, the best way to hit up the unexplored backcountry this season. The snowboard is, of course, designed...

The 2014 Dinosaurs Will Die Bogart Snowboard is a freestyle masterpiece that can kick it on any terrain. Designed and ridden by Ben Bogart, the snowboard is his go-to board no matter the time of year or the conditions. If...
After years of dominating in the accessories market, Dakine has expanded into outerwear this season. The Zone Jacket sits in the middle of its jacket line, offering plenty of protection for the cold and deep without costing more than the average snowboard.
The 2014 Burton Cloudsplitter Snowboard is a powder board through and through. It's the perfect snowboard for anyone who likes to dish it out in the deep stuff. Though it's a bit pricey for beginners, it works well for...
Not even the snow can stop you from running outdoors when you strap on the Crescent Moon Composite Kilo Run Snowshoes. There is no longer any reason to hole up inside on the treadmill when winter comes rushing in. The...
Splitboards are the best way to access hike-in backcountry terrain far beyond lift country. But they’re also among the most expensive boards on the market, often approaching $1,000. That’s not necessarily a bad price if you plan to abandon the resort entirely, but kind of steep when used as a complement to an equally expensive season pass. To make matters worse, you probably have an entire section of your garage dedicated to your current quiver of boards, making you hesitant to buy yet another. Could this be the solution?
The 2014 Jones Carbon Flagship Snowboard is just about as perfect as a freeride board can get. It excels in all terrains and is as comfortable as I'll get out. The carbon topsheet is of particular note. In addition to...
