I dunno, everytime I use cotton, I find it hard to keep my body temp properly regulated so that I'm not getting too cold at weird times.

He can pull off wearing just a cotton shirt underneath though because his jacket is a freaking bear skin coat. Literally I think that thing weighs as much as he does.

I don't like cotton either, if you get sweaty in it it gets wet, and gross, and then you get cold. Though I had good luck this season, but that's only because the average weather for the season was like 50-60 degrees out. I still wear cotton because I have nothing else to wear underneath, though. Oh well.

The only cotton item I wear when out snowboarding is my underwear. I am sure you all wanted to know that...

Yep I did, haha it was the coldest day of the season and I was off at Chestnut AT NIGHT rofl from about 10 p.m - 3:30 a.m. COLDEST DAY EVER I swear, you know how crappy my jacket is, I literally had two pairs of pants on under my boardpants, then get this - a tank top, t-shirt, turtle-neck, hooded sweatshirt, the liner to my jacket, then the jacket itself LOL I felt like Kenny from South Park. I wish I had thermals though, that probably would've saved me a bunch of layering. I hate super-layering like that, but that day was so cold if I didn't keep my neck gaitor over the lower half of my face, my nose literally felt like it would get frostbite lol, and taking my hands out of my gloves to change the song on my ipod was just pure torture ... but man the memories!

That's why I'm definitely investing in a nice jacket with some high ratings this winter. Too bad the M6 jacket I bought is too small. Sigh. 20/20 for only $100. just what I was looking for, too. I damn whoever stole the Medium before I could get to it to a super spastic season.

Hey, is any of you ladies in need of a jacket are online right now, Steep and cheap has a nice looking women's sessions jacket up right now. Pretty sweet looking deal. I would grab it. You probably have about 15-30 minutes to grab one.

What's sac anyway???

HA, speaking of which, I was just flipping through my Buyer's Guide and there was this get-up that made me laugh, but oddly enough I thought of you. I think you're appreciate it. But shit, I can't find anything of it online ... But it's called the Volcom Limited Edition Peace Off Jacket and Pants. Basically, it's an entire set-up of tye-dye.


And shoot, killclimbz! How dare you posting things up at 9 a.m with a 10-15 minute warning, haha.

Hey, I am not the person who puts that stuff up. It's all sac's fault. I will say that they have been blowing out snowboard gear as of late. I would keep hitting refresh there. That jacket should pop again soon.

I know, I'm just pulling your leg. I've actually been browsing through gearengine, whiskymilitia and SAC every day, I'm surprised with how much snowboard stuff they're throwing out there. Keeping my eye out, for sure!
