WARM Jacket Ideas Needed...

Hey Snowboarders!
I already have all of my gear from last year except that this year I need to buy a new WARM snowboarding jacket since my old one is pretty torn up... I already own a thin shell jacket for warm days, but I would like a warmer one for those cold days too.

I've attached a picture showing what I have now (as far as color matching goes)...

My budget is up to $250...
Any brands are fine with me as long as they have decent waterproof/windproof ratings.

Thanks for any help you can give!
Ryan

I personally wear a thin coat and rely on layers.

I havn't personally owned either but I've heard good things about Sessions and 686 coats.

I bought a Marmot Tamarack shell. I have heavy, medium and light fleeces. Then I have merino base layers. Whatever the weather dictates, I wear. I personally hate having big bulky/heavy jackets when I ride. I do have a warm as hell Patagonia down jacket for town though.

The warmest jacket I own is hands down my Van's Supreme Down. I never wear it because it's to warm! I rely on layers and usually strip one or 2 down at lunch time etc...

Yeah I guess maybe I should buy some more layers for colder days, but still I'd like to have a warmer jacket so I'll check our your suggestions.
Thanks everyone!

Yea layering is where its at, you can more easily change it up depending on the conditions.

I usually just wear thermals + fleece + Mtn Hardware Goretex shell jacket...i only wear thermals + pants usually as the pants are built double layered...

Layering would be the best way to go by far .Start off with a waterproof shell (perferibly Gore-Tex)then a insulating
jacket with multi under layers .This will keep you warm and toasty even on the coldest days of riding .
The biggest plus is you will not feel like your wearing a big heavy bulky single jacket
As far as brands ,it's really up to your choice of style.

yeah, if you don't want to worry about layering down is the way to go. You could also go with a synthetic material like primaloft which is warm as hell but not as bulky.
