I have noticed that snowboarders often wear jackets that almost looks the same. Is there a particular kind of jacket for snowboarders? Or is it just the same kind as the one that is used during winter time?
Yep, but considering where your from, it isn't really cold over there is it? And I always wondered, do they have so to speak, "US Stores" in non US lands, territories, states, and that good stuff? Like say, do you guys have like clothing stores like Abercombie, and in this case North Face.
Well, I don't know about using them for snowboarding, but I tend to buy the fire-resistant jackets that the riggers use. They are very flexible and light and last forever.
I still think $50 is very cheap. Over here I pay £50 sterling as the cheapest for my jackets but they still do the job at temps of around -14.
