Default Down Snowboard Jackets

Hi All, great work on top forum for starters!!!

Want to ask for advice and recomendations for a new boarding jacket..
Prefer Down for warmth as boarding in conditions up to minus 20 celcius in switzerland, but also up to 10 degrees celcius in Australia.. Having said, if anyone can recomend a super warm synthetic lined jacket, i'm open to looking.. Need at least 10,000 waterproof cos it rains a lot in Oz.. Want something super sturdy too.. Have looked at the following:

Foursquare Ruff
Analog Geiger
Spyder Yosemite
Spyder Freeryde Echo
Ground EOS
Burton Strapped Down
Patagonia(cant remember the model)
686 ACC Nexus

If anyone can offer any other suggestions that would be great. Biggest problem is the jackets are SUPER expensive here, and a lot of the online US shops cant ship to oz (australia)..

Any help appreciated..

You might be able to find it, but the Volcom vertical down jacket is a good down jacket, its the one i have lol and it has helped my keep super toasty ing some pretty harsh temps. (been in -15 before)Check it out. Also airblaster just came out with a super poofy jacket this year as well. looks warm

hey mate
i picked up a bonfire down jacket from my local shop for 200 bucks, it's toasty as hell. I wore it to buller in July as well, was still good there in ~0 temps, not too sweaty
I know my local has 40% off storewide at the moment, sure you'd be able to score one cheap if you hunt around in the next couple of weeks

I have a Vans Supreme down. It rocks and was super cheap on Whiskey back in the day. I honestly have worn it once and would rather layer on colder days. Even with just a wife beater on my down jacket is HOTTTT!
