Almost all of the Mine77 stuff has been a hard pass for me so far. It shocks me that it sells out, but I have yet to notice any of it on hill here in the PNW. Maybe it's just aimed at the conspicuous consumption crowds at the destination mega-resorts?

In the FT FB, Lesley said there’s a few mystery ones in Australia but COVID restricted some material access so the XX came about.*

*i skimmed that comment section so it may not be accurate

I'll look to see what it is, but some of it is what I would definitely consider as "haute-couture" regarding snowboarding "fashion".  If anything, B has been going down clothing pretty hard as of late.  Some of it reminds me of Volcom stuff.  Nothing against it, but the Mine77 clothing line is a bit out there imho.  There were a few technical pieces/luggage that looked interesting based on Jake's experience, but I wouldn't be splashing down extra $$$ for the exclusivity of it all which seems to be where the Mine77 line appears to be heading?

Yup, the XX has a different core than the Mystery version.

So it would seem that the mystery core alone is 550$ more expensive than the core of the Custom X?

a $1200 snowboard doesn't seem crazy to me when it's coming from B, because if you fuck it up you'll probably get a replacement of some sort or a credit. also, I would never pay $1200 for a snowboard

Wait til the URLTR@ R@RE MYSTERY KEY l00K ebay auctions start showing up, and @snowman's sitting pretty at 1/3rd the cost

Are the $399 mine77 jeans worth it?

It's all manufactured scarcity, right? Because if it's really Jake's 'goto' gear, like the shit he loves the best... why even make it limited? Why not take what he thought was the best gear and make it available to everyone with the rest of the durable goods. Though, maybe we should all be a bit grateful we're not going to see mass production of the cargo pocket overalls (those are shorts? Why do the look like shorts?).

It's just an observation I guess. The core and the price is the only difference, so easy to make that assumption, and there are less xx models than mystery.

I'm buying snowsticks so can't really complain too much about that price.

For sure. But it’s interesting how a slightly different core and a name modifier will move the price by $550.
