2018 Tested and Approved

The Best Snowboarding Product of 2018 Reviews

We introduced Tested + Approved with the intent to create the most comprehensive snowboard gear test in existence and deliver the results to you. Now in its third year, we’ve learned a few things along the way, but the purpose remains the same. We weeded out everything you don’t want in order to determine what’s contained here.

Armed with testing criterion, our riders rated each boot, binding, helmet, glove, goggle, and pack while on the road and hot-lapping their home resorts in snowy locations from California to Colorado to the East Coast. The products herein represent the pinnacle of fit, functionality, and design. Click though the reviews, and dive into our honest feedback. We want you to put those hard-earned pennies towards products that will legitimately improve your season.
