686 has by far the best jackets. They're all made for any type of snowboarding and have a crap load of features at a big range of prices.
Whatever you do, make sure your jacket brand's waist gaiters (powder skirts) are compatible with your snowboarding pants. 686, Burton, Foursquare, Ride and most others use the standard 3-loop connection (2 loops on the sides of the waist and 1 in the center of the back, on the pants.)
There are some though, such as Volcom, which use zipper connections to the pants. I'm not sure about Ripzone and Dakine, because I can't see any loops on their pants besides the belt loops. So make sure you get that right!
This is a tasty burger.
