Default What does everyone sport out on the hill?

I am planning to update my wife's and my jacket and pants this winter. What does everyone wear? Anything worth checking out in the 2009/10 season? What brands do you love/hate? Lighter/water proof clothing is my personal preference. It is a lot easier to move in etc. I don't like wearing hoodies or anything like that on the slope. I don't believe cotton mixes well with snow.

I see a lot of info on hardware in these forums, just wondering what everyone's opinion is on software. Thanks for any posts!

I really like my 686 and FourSquare stuff. I have a pair of Nike ACG snowpants and they turned out to be comfy, warm and waterproof so I can't complain about Nike either.

I wear burton vent pants. They are good for all days. I also have a sessions softshell jacket for nice hot days and a burton shawn white pinstripe jacket for cold days.

I have 686 pants and burton jacket, I like them both. I also have a set of columbia which is like crap. Just find something that fits well and looks nice. Check out the fashion part of this board, lots of good info there.

Despite Burton being overpriced, I do think they make some quality outerwear. Ive had a few different pants and jackets, and theyve all been really waterproof and durable. So if you can find some Burton stuff on sale (i.e. sierrasnowboard.com) I think its worth it. As far as being easy to move around in, im a big fan of the burton team relaxed fit, kind of baggy but comfortable

This probably belongs in the Fashion section.

I wear Quiksilver for pants and jacket. I like them so much I'll probably shop them first when I need to get new stuff. But my stuff has lasted 4 years without a tear so far (except some damage from a rope tow) so I don't know how long it will even last. I may be dead before it wears out.

My daughter and I have got bonfire pants and jackets, the wife has sims, and the boys are Burton. No complaints about any of them really other than the fact that my son's pants are getting too short for him

I would not look for a specific brand but look for the features you need, vents in the pants and jacket for warmer days, hoods that are removable and fit over your helmet, snow gator at the waist(mine even has snaps that connect to the pants so it stays put better)...etc...
