    I really dig this small PNW company and it's sense of humor. I like the original designs and abstract styles. It's been cool sighting an Airblaster posse riding at Hood or Skibowl. Dudes know how to have fun.

    They have got some fun stuff on their blog.

    Airblaster has made some sick video's like December, August, and their new The Movie.

    My personal experience with Airblaster has been great. I rode the Javier, and 4.2(?) softshell jacket and two pairs of Frugal pants last year and always stayed dry. On cold days I've got an '08 Mix Down that is so warm I only wear it when it is less than 15 degree out. It feels like a down sleeping bag. Chair ride naps are good.

    Warranty: Only thing I've had to warranty was an Airleash that I broke. I contacted Airblaster to buy a replacement and they sent me a new one free. When I send emails to Airblaster I usually get a response right away. Often the emails I get back include a goofy picture attached.

    Sizing:
    It was a mystery to me before, but this sizing chart just got posted. I'm 185 lbs and 5ft 9in. I like a medium or large jacket and prefer XL pants, but the Large fit fine.

       

    Airblaster owners and founders:

    Jesse Grandoski – owner/founder
    Paul Miller – owner/founder
    Travis Parker – owner/founder

     I love airblaster too, the designs and just the general atitude they create around the brand. I know its marketing but i like it.
    I have a airgoggle witch works great, a legbag witch i like but the stitching of a pocket came undone so the pocket fell off but it still works. And i have a sweater witch i love, the cut is so good, nice and nog but not fat at all.

    I like their stuff.

    The one piece with the butt flap will be purchased this year for sure. Not for me, but will be purchased.

    Totally forgot to mention the other stuff I use from Airblaster.

    Ninja suit: I've worn one for the last two years on all, but the warmest of days. It is super comfortable and allows me to usually only have to wear a light layer to stay warm under a shell jacket. It's also held up well and resists odors.

    Airgoggles: I've worn Airgogs all last season. No fogging, very comfy, versatile lenses, good helmet fit.
    New lens option this year is the Baker lens, it has the chrome lens inside a clear lens so that you don't get them all scuffed and scratched like most gogs get.

    i like airblaster a lot, but have little experience in person with it on my body. i tried on the berserker jacket in calgary in size large.. length was right, width was wrong. too wide. rad jacket though.

    i really like the grandpa jacket this year.

    unless i can fondle it in person first, i cant see myself buying any of their outerwear any time.. which is unfortunate.

    also, i like the ninja masks i have.

     Baker lens sounds cool. But I really wish they would make some more colors of lenses. I rocked air goggs almost all of last season as well.

    i liked airgoggles, but i went back and forth, comparing them and my EG2s... in the end, i decided EG2s are just a much better fit for me, and definitely a bigger field of vision. sure, i dont ride differently with a normal fov, but i like the bigger one, and its not like im sacrificing something to have a bigger range.

    based on my small experience with the berserker and burton sig fit, i would say airblaster is more like team fit..

    weird.. the berserker i tried felt pretty big, and ive tried on lots of burton team fit.

    i guess maybe youre right, but it felt larger than sig fit. or maybe i was crazy at the time. maple leaf disease!

    in related news, i was putting shit in the computer yesterday and we got the new jussi anoraks.. tried on the large and its not as big as i remember last years large being.. cool jacket though. the heat color isnt as bad in person, and the sorcerer one is kinda cool too.

    also, the green color of that restricted plainview jacket is rad. its sort of a herringbone material, and pretty much that perfect vintage green i was looking for. might look into that some time, but who knows.

    Airblaster sizing is nuts.
    From what I've seen their Jackets are like Burton Sig Fit with Team Fit length.
    Not too slim, plenty of room in the shoulders and body but an extra inch or so in sleeves and body length.
    Don't know about the pants.
    Womens sizing is jacked.

    The Onesie is balls though. Loves it.
