Replying to Quick Reviews- First Drop, Afterbangs, LethalD
Have been riding beat ass skis and cabelas hunting pants forever and finally saved up a little for some real stuff so I went all out this year.
First Drop- Got xl Blue pants. First thing I noticed, they are HUGE. Like Really Huge. I'm 5'8 and they are massive on me. I like it because they are warm and thats the look I like but for someone looking for something that fits "right" take that into consideration. If I dont have the bottoms rolled up they engulf my whole boot while I'm walking. Not going to say it is the Best of the best in quality but its their first year, it looks sick and it has kept me dry and comfortable every day, what more can I ask for. Stitching on the overall straps ripped a little the first time I put them on when it got caught on my shouler but other than that they're good. Lots of compliments on these badboys.
Afterbangs- Mounted up with my trusty P12's that have ridden on my AR6's and Anthems as well. I like the ski so far (5 days in). It does not seem revolutionary as far as feel and is not as "amazing" as people make it out to be in my eyes, but it is a solid ski and so far I have no complaints. My anthems were wayyyyyy softer than these are (only 5 days in), but many people make them out to be noodles and they certainly arent. I have had them off 40ft jumps, no prob. They feel more solid than my anthems did as far as not washing out if I land a little backseat etc. Also skiied a fair amount of high speed groomer runs and a lot of tree runs and they were great. Not claiming them as a GS ski but they are no different than other park skis I have ripped all mtn. For those thinking twice because of teh construction being new, I would say go ahead. They seem really solid, and it seems like Line really thought it out.
LDC- My second LDC jacket, (sold my original aqua hotbox when I needed cash and regretted it ever since) Love it! Super well made, taped pockets, no frills, good looks, always keeps me dry and warm. I'll be an LDC customer for life. Magnets on the pockets are sick too as it make closing em up easy with gloves. Magnet on the back that holds the hood from flipping into your face when riding switch is also a great feature. 10/10
Hope this helps some people out, it woulda helped me
