Volcom outerwear is good stuff, but aside from that, 2 of my favorite features are the Ziptech pants to jacket interface (patented, one of those really slick ones like the K2 ankle strap hinge), as well as the glove stash (open outer pocket you can quickly shove gloves into on the lift or in the trees).
If you want really good shit maybe Shred will sell you a 15 year old pair of Arcteryx for $200 but I'd be a little concerned with odor
I've heard good things about volcom. I don't know what I was thinking about getting a good pair for $200. What do you think about the 32 Blahzay DGK. You can't go wrong with 20k/10k.
