Default Snowboard Jacket??

Hey guys my friend is having trouble telling whether this jacket is good or not. Some people say it's only 5k while others say it's 10k. On the website he's ordering from it doesn't say its rating. So we went to Grenade's website and we found the jacket, but it's not the same color. Grenade says it's 10k but others still believe it's 5k. Please help us out!

Web Site Ordering From:

---Oh and he wanted to know if it is 10k will it keep him warm and dry? Thanks!

I never get anything below 15K. Gore-Tex/HyVent is my choice if I can help it.

Try emailing the manufacturer if your unsure of details. I've done it before and usually get a response in a day or two.
