Tested + Approved 2019

The most comprehensive snowboarding gear reviews of 2019

Tested + Approved is snowboarding's most comprehensive and bullshit-free product test. Period. With an endless sea of gear to choose from, it's not easy to know where to spend your money. We set out to navigate this deep sea because, like everyone, we get bummed when something fails on its word. We start the Tested + Approved process by reaching out to brands with reputable product offerings, asking them to submit qualifying gear across an array of categories. We then distribute this gear to insightful, diehard shredders across the country with distinguished product knowledge and an astute ability to critique gear. Committed to eliminating inferior items, blown out soles, busted zippers, fogged up lenses, and gimmicky tech is sifted out. Only the best remain.
