All the outerwear I've owned has lasted through all the abuse I could give it, aside from a pair of 686 Original Cargos I bought used. However, I think the prior owner put the shell in the dryer because the pant had a strange, stiff texture to it. It ended up ripping and soaking through.

Either way, most of the big brands should have high quality garbs you can buy in a style you like. Foursqure, Special Blend, Volcom, Quiksilver, 686, DC, Nomis, Analog etc. They all have outerwear with wide ranges of specs. I have a 686 2.5 Ply Smarty for days when the weather is hideous, otherwise I just wear my Nomis hoodies. Pants are 686 Original Cargo and Nomis Simon Signature Sag Out. Neither one has let me down, aside from the one 686 I got used, but that's no fault of the pants. I find I don't really need 20k waterproof, 10k and 15k are enough to stay dry unless you are riding through lots of deep pow stashes or it's wet and heavy.

i would say both are important but quality is more important. you don't wanna be riding in a nice jacket to find out it rips the first day you rock it

Snowboarding till the day i die!!
