The last 2 were super cheap lucky scores at yard sales and thrift stores. I also had good luck with Burton snow pants. If a jacket lasts me more than a season, it's good. I have one with about 70 days on it and no seams have tore yet.
Thanks for the feedback! The Cabela's jacket I have now is tough as nails but it's pretty heavy, no vents or waistband to keep out snow either. All I can wear under it is my base layer unless temp is under 15-20F. Honestly it's probably too hot. It's an awesome jacket, just not so much for riding. Same thing goes for my pants, waterproof and warm but heavy. I was looking at the Poacher lineup to maybe replace both of them.
