Do you find that you sweat though, Rox?

Or should I be saying 'perspire?'

My problem with layers and waterproofs is that I end up cold when I take everything off.

I just spray my entire nude body with a silicone base layer and follow up with some weatherproofing vinyl spray or the like. I start to become delirious after a couple hours of my body being forced to retain it's own sweat, but it makes the crashing hurt less. Also, the insults.

I have a jacket for snowboarding by the brand name "spyder" & it is awesome. I'd deff buy a snowboarding/skiing jacket made for that, not just a normal winter jacket there MUCH different. Snowboarding/skiing jackets have built in liners so snow doesnt get up in your jacket and they keep you super warm & they have style! There also much more water resistant, have many pockets that snowboarders need, the liners keep 100% of the wind out also. I paid $150 at the end of the season, normal retail I think was about $270.

Spyder is a great brand. My fiance uses Spyder and loves it. Plus, they have great styles. I personally use Quicksilver because it was the only company that made a brilliantly loud orange that I wanted to wear. I got mine from Moosejaw for $160, but it retailed for a little over 300.

yea i wish i could have found a nice jacket for $50... Special Blend is a nice brand. it is sold all over the internet and i found my jacket with matching pants for about $160 for all of it. I can run the arm of my jacket under the faucet forever and my arm is still dry

first jacket was a volcom, but i have upgraded to a helly hansen. HH makes some serious survival/work wear and have nailed it with this jacket. the volcom is relatively new and still a usable jacket, but it rarely gets pulled of the rack. a powder skirt is a great feature along with underarm vents and interior pockets (keeps things warm and dry like ipods and cell phones).

my first year snowboarding i learned the lesson hard that you need to keep yourself comfortable (dry and warm) to keep riding all day. getting wet and cold makes the lift a long, miserable ride. get good outerwear so that you can use the riding gear you have dropped the rest of your cash on, haha.

Any shell that has a 10 000/10 000+ breathability/waterproofing, fully taped seams, and a pile of pockets gets my approval. Along with a powder skirt and proper layering aka NO COTTON. I think the reason some of you are getting cold is because you are using cotton as your layering, which is bad, because it soaks up the sweat, but doesn't pull it away from your skin.
