Default Help me out with this jacket

So I'm looking at a new jacket for the first time in almost 4 seasons. I like this jacket, but I think it's only 5k/5k. What does that mean exactly? Should I not even be looking at it?
VOLCOM Disoriented 5K Men's Snowboarding Jacket in Mega Dot Black - Snowboarding, Surfing and Skateboarding Superstore

I also like this Special Blend jacket:
Special Blend Trigger Insulated Jacket - Men's from

I think those jackets are in two different clases in terms of warmth, right? Will the SB jacket be too much for local trips to the SoCal resorts? But it'll be better for days up in Tahoe/Mammoth?

That first jacket is pretty sick. (fr blck)

The second jacket is gonna be warmer though. Won't be too warm. If anything just don't wear much under it.

Im looking for a jacket too right now and it really sucks cuz the really nice jackets dont have much insulation/waterproofing.

Im in the same boat man

...and its sinking

5k/5k is a little low for waterproofing if you ride somewhere with wet snow.

I like my pants to be at least 10k or higher
