Snowboard Suit & Crash Pants Suggestions?

Hey guys,
Looking for snowboard pants and jacket to last me several seasons. Also looking for crash pants, prerably something comfortable and that doesn't bulge out too much. Pretty new to the scene, just looking to get some suggestions on these items. As in who makes good stuff that's not overpriced, things like that. Appreciate the advice.
Cheers.

As far as snow jackets and pants are concerned, check out the Online Retailers thread on this forum, and have a look at their sale (or outlet) stock. Most sites are still trying to sell off their 08/09 stock at reduced prices.

As far as brands, I've heard good things about 686, Special Blend and foursquare. Burton sale prices are likely to be less ridiculous than their MSRP mark-ups, so if you don't mind throwing your money at an industrial giant that's always an option.

Volcom also makes a good (though expensive) product, if you can find some of their gear on sale you'll be in business.

Demon hardtail crash pants. Plated armor over the tailbone has saved my ass (literally) a dozen times over.
