Just go try shit on and see what you like. Like they said before, who cares what everyone else thinks.

Or, you could buy the most expensive coat that you can find. I'm sure there won't be too many of those out there on your mountain... at least not till next season

I usually try to find something that's sort of lower profile and high techy. I like pockets, gaiters, and all that other good shit.

Just don't buy Burton... Unless you buy their top line the shit sux and has no features. O and is way more expensive than it should be.

I have the accelerate one one green. This jacket Gigi Rüf “T.D.S” Jacket | Volcom | Snow 2011/12 is literally the best jacket around....for shell. Sorry to be so arrogant, but it really is. Sooooooo many features and innovations on that jacket.

More hate for Burton... who would have seen that coming.

I have a Burton AK Stagger jacket and it is the cat's ass. Gore-Tex, built super well, features, looks awesome.

I don't have experience with Burton's "lower end" stuff, but the AK series is great.

I also bought a 686 jacket this season and I'm really liking that too. Also has a ton of features and is dope gold rope in the looks department.

Just get what you think looks good and has the features you want.

Minimum requirements for me:

At LEAST 8k breathability / waterproofing (My 686 is 15k/20k, and the Burton is Gore-tex which doesn't have a rating, but I believe people consider it like 25k/25k or something like that)

Powder skirt

Enough pockets, including a goggle pocket and media pocket

I like the sleeve things (686 has a stretchy mesh version, AK has a strap that goes around your thumb) so your sleeves don't ride up.

I spose i can give a bit of feedback - negative of sorts as well.
Got a sessions jacket here - with a plastic ipod/iphone pocket which ripped during normal use after about 10-12 days of use (in the first 3 months of owning the jacket).

Same goes for the pass card/ID holder plastic bit.

I would say avoid the plastic stuff

My jacket is so underground even the company who made it hasn't heard of the brand.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. But seriously, I'm no help.
