Can't fit wrist guards under any gloves comfortably so I wear them over some leather work gloves. 

I've had luck fitting size L flexmeter wrist guards under XL Howl Team Mitts. Check 'em out.

can't remember if there's a specific glove thread...

anyone have hands on experience with Baist gloves? these trigger mitts look sick. expensive, but in line with hestra and oyuki and seemingly more featured

First couple of days on last years Quiksilver TR stretch jacket. Never really looked at Quik before but it intrigued me.

the material is great, somewhat soft and some stretch but seems very durable at the same time.

bomber zippers, good features, good fit (love a drop tail). Pow skirt is not removable but it has buttons to clip it out of way if not being used. 

Overall, very happy especially getting it so cheap.

They look good.. very similar to the ripcurl mountainwear jackets I have. Stretchy, 30kmm waterproof and 4ok breathable.

I've been riding the Quicksilver TR Stretch this season and am totally in love with it. It looks like next season has different pockets though, so I'm bummed.

So I have a Dakine Vapor and Dakine Control, both in Medium.  I am 6'2'' and pretty slim.  The Vapor is more fitted and longer. Comfortable with a baselayer and one thin mid layer but anything more than that it feels snug.  The Control (which I believe is last year's Sawtooth), is roomier but still not baggy, not quite as long but still plenty long, has a GREAT hood compatible helmet.  Probably my favorite go-to jacket.  Can layer as much as I want comfortably.  Hope that helps.

if you are 6,2 and a medium, you weigh what? 150 pounds? how are the sleeves even remotely manageable?

@highme is that a Volcom Guch jacket you're wearing on Instagram and if so, how do you like it?

(Yep I'm a stalker)

How do Volcom and Burton AK sizing and fit compare? I’ve been wearing Burton AK for awhile now but wanna change it up a bit and try Volcom L pants, I hear great things about them. Has anybody had experience with both? Thanks!

The L Gore pants are a little larger in the waist and hips than Cyclics.  Maybe by an inch or so.  Same size cuffs.  IIRC, the L Gore was a touch longer.

depends on what piece you're talking about

in general Burton waist is bigger, but narrower through ass and thighs.. i swim in burton xl swash/hover but would need xxl volcom L pants for the waist. (the rest is huge)

xl stretch gore volcoms are basically skin tight on me

xl roan bibs fit great, i need xxl rain bibs for the waist but everything else is too big

L gore fit like shit in general, huge stupid legs and gigantic bottom openings. super low crotch. shitty snaps and velcro instead of buttons. smallish vents on legs. not articulated at all. same fit as the gpt pants. leg pocket sits over the knee. dumb dumb dumb.

Hmm, interesting, I was comparing the L gore and the swash  and cyclic pants. I had an L Gore jacket in sizes m and l and the m was ridiculously small and the L I was swimming in. That said, I love the Landvik TDS Red Dawn jacket, everything about it just works, it fits well and is really well made. No experience with the pants tho and I’m wondering if their sizing is as inconsistent as the jackets.
