Definitely would change the outerwear. Should have spent the extra money for the better waterproofing. Ah well, didn't know how much I'd get into it.

This stuff is fine for days when its cold and drier ... but if the snows wet, it sucks...

I typically just buy whatever i want lol so i went through a big upgrade this year with almost all new gear except goggles/pants.
I really SHOULD get better pants, i mean i bought these Northface pants while on Business in Shanghai, China..like 10 bucks literally..but i swear to god they actually work..i just wear one pair of thermals and i never get wet its quite amazing. I expected them to just fall apart after a few trips...but i mean i talked them down to the equivilent of like 10 USD..so i figured why not lol..shell jacket for 15(ripped it off the mountain accidentally) and 2 layer gloves that i still use for 5...other than a few errant stitches they have lasted a good 25 trips now...and considering i spent a large amount of my first 3-4 trips on my ass as i learned last year its even more impressive

The sad part? Its probably made in the same exact factory as the real north face stuff.

I want a loop in my jacket sleeves that my thumb can go through so that when I wipe out the snow doesn't get into my gloves.

I'm happy with my boards and boots.
Rome 390s are good for park, but would like something more responsive for freeride.
Sessions Gore-tex Summit gloves got holes between the thumbs and index fingers after like 2 or 3 days (didn't even do any grabs)... too bad I bought them online and probably don't have the receipt anymore.
My jacket (241 Gore-tex, got it cheap from a friend) works really well in snow, but is useless in rain. It's also too big. Aside from looking kind of dumb, it's easy for snow to get inside when I fall.
I'd like to actually own some backcountry gear!
