Exclamation Need help with a jacket! Cant find anywhere

Im in need of a new jacket for the 09/10 season. I snowboard where the weather is usually not extremely cold. Right now Im looking for a thin/light waterproof snowboard jacket but I have not been able to find anything. If anyone could give suggestions on a jacket please let me know. Thanks

Popular companies to look at:
Special Blend
Holden
Foursquare
Sessions
Burton
Airblaster
DC
Volcom
Bonfire
Quiksilver
686
L1
Ride/Cappell
Vans...

If you can't find something from any of those companies, you wont ever find anything.

I actually have WM, SAC, and TD widgets on my desktop

I know all the brands but what im really looking for is a thin/light waterproof jacket. Im looking for something in between a windbreaker and snowboard jacket. I have googled and done a lot of searching but I just cant find any. If anyone has any specific suggestions that would be much appreciated.

Look for any shells with Gore or a 15k rating. That should do it. If you're not that concerned with waterPROOFING then look at softshells. Nearly everyone has one. They wear more like a hoodie but generally have around 6k-8k waterproofing.

Yeah, I was going to suggest a softshell too. I have my full Gore Tex North Face shell for nasty weather and then a Cloudveil softshell for nicer days.

ya "soft shell" where the magic words that I needed when I search google. I have already found a few that I like. Snowboarding in southern california is usually not too cold but if the temperatures dip down I can always layer up under the jacket. Thanks all
