Unhappy Outerwear Help Please

Hey guys,

Need pants, jacket and gloves. Looking around all day and completely at a loss. Read the outerwear guide and I think I understand about the waterproof/breathability stuff. Yet I don't know the numbers I should look for.

I plan to ride basically evrything from local Ontario groomers to Rockies in Alberta to the resorts in BC. Should I be looking for something like 10k/10k? 15k/15k? GORE-TEX? I'm not a pro rider, I'm a couple of seasons in and am reasonably comfortable on a board. I want to ride more and improve.

Also, what are some go-to brands for outerwear? I seem to gravitate toward Burton and Volcom. Are these good choices? What are some other good ones?

Thank you very much. You'll be helping me out lots. Cheers.
