Burton Land Lord Splitboard ($800)
burton.com

Splitboards are squirrely by nature, there’s just no solid way (yet) of making two planks ride like one. This Landlord splitty is pretty damn close though. The criss-cross carbon fiber weave makes it insanely responsive without being too stiff and the shape and flex is so damn fun and lively. It’s the closest thing to ripping your favorite resort board.—B.G.

Burton AK Yeti Mitts ($140)

The Yeti is an elusive beast. The Nepalese vow they’re real, say they can hear their call late at night if you listen close. For those searching for one deep in winter realms, this mitt’s Gore-Tex should keep your hands dry and the insanely grippy palms might help you snag one, or at least step up your grab game.—B.G.

Analog Zenith Jacket ($390)

When I see Analog I always think Jeff Anderson. One of those combinations so burned into my board brain I can’t separate them. Always dug AG outerwear, most likely always will, if they keep making jackets like this.—J.P.

Burton Ion Boots ($430)
burton.com

I’ve ridden a lot different boots over the years, but I always return to the Ion. I’ve had a pair ever season I can remember, even since they were called the Viking. This year’s are fully redesigned and the best to date by far. The gel cushioning, heat-reflective sole, new hybrid foam liner and padded ankle harness are just a few reasons why they rule.—B.G.

F-Stop Satori EXP Pack ($359)
fstopgear.com

As a snowboard photographer I tend to carry a lot of gear for every situation, not to mention things like radios, lunch, and backcountry gear. This pack is designed with these details in mind and shoulder straps that are kind on the body.—C.W.

Stance Baldface Sock ($25)

Good socks are crucial for a long day of shredding and shooting. Stance makes quality ones that are fun with great graphics and they keep my feet warm. These ones in particular keep me focused on getting back to Baldface.—C.W.
