Find out who made the bataleon shit. if its from the volcom factory in china or something awesome like that ..... i'd be all over it...
or if it has anything awesome like cocona or goretex.
I had the Burton Poacher pants and got rid of them because after a full day they got water logged and wet. I purchased the Volcom goretex pants and love them. The butt is extra thick and goretex in general is awesome. IMO it matters less about jacket and more about the pants. Especially since as a snowboarder you are on your butt alot when you strap in and stuff.
I should caveat that. So long as the jacket connects into your pants and keeps you warm you can wear just about any jacket you want.
