Dainese Flexagon Waistcoat Back Protector Review

This review of the Dainese Flexagon Waistcoat back protector was carried out in Les Menuire, The 3 Valleys. Hexagons are known in science at the building block shape of life.  Dainese have cleverly used their versatility for the design of the Flexagon back protector pads embedded in the waistcoat.

Dainese Hector Wristguard 13 Review

So, why review the Dainese Hector Wristguard 13?  Anyone who has ever had a go at snowboarding will know the virtues of wrist guards.  After all, the most common injuries sustained whilst snowboarding are wrist injuries.

Dainese Trailknit Pro-Armour Pants Winter Review

I reviewed the Dainese Trailknit Pro-Armour Pants Winter on end of season trips to Les Menuires in the Three Valleys, and Soldeu in Andorra. As a snowboarder, I can certainly see the virtues of having knee protection.

Chatham Maguire II Walking Boots Review

Aesthetically, the Chatham Maguire II brown boots are rich in colour and look sophisticated.  They are good for walking around a ski resort in snow during the day, but look great when wearing out to the bars in the evening.  In other words, the brown boots look more 'out, out' than the tan suede ones do.

Forcefield Slam 1 Shorts Review – Snowboard Protection Shorts

I was interested in reviewing the Forcefield Slam 1 protection shorts as I reviewed the original Forcefield Slam impact shorts last season and was mightily impressed. So what is different about the Forcefield Slam 1 shorts apart from a new royal blue colour? Read the review and find out why these are even better!

DC Peary Winter Boots Review

Designed for those harsh winter days, this is a review of the DC Peary winter boots. When travelling on a ski or snowboard trip, footwear to wear around the resort is hardly ever taken into consideration. You need boots that will keep you warm, comfortable and dry, as well as look good.

Helly Hansen Balder Glove Review

The Helly Hansen Balder Glove is as quality as it looks.  The merino wool kept my hands warm at all times and the soft goat skin leather is beautiful to touch.

Dainese Ski Clothing Review

Snow.Guide decided to test a range of Dainese ski clothing – the Italian company, founded in 1972 is known for its motorsports protective clothing. Their clothing range is now extensive, with a focus on high end, technical gear that looks stylish and smart.

The Snow.Guide is a snowsports website by Robert Stewart, qualified ISIA ski instructor and ski journalist and snowboard editor Mark Barber.
