Default Jacket question

I just received this jacket today that I ordered, 686 Plexus Pinnacle 3-Ply Jacket - Men's from Dogfunk.com

My question is this, what makes this a good snowboarding jacket? For $400msrp, even though I paid $240, it feels like a rip off. I mean it very well may be a good jacket, I only have 1 season of boarding under my belt and am by no means an expert on gear or at boarding. But this jacket really feels like a $25 windbreaker. Its light as shit, definitely will not keep you even remotely warm so you will definitely still need layers. Can someone help me and explain why this jacket should cost $400/$240 or even over a $100.
