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.
U spent that much money on THAT jacket? no offense but its plain boring like midget sex.
I have 2 jackets from 686 and i couldnt be any happier with the quality and durability. They r very warm once u have a fleece under but what im tryin to say is that u couldve bought something else from 686 that doesnt look like u got it from target

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
