What kind of jacket is good for snowboarding?

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?

Usually the North Face brand jackets, they usually sell them at the lodge you would be skiing or snowboarding at. Their nice and warm for dealing with all that snow.

Thanks, JT and I hope that jackets of this brand are affordable? How much does it cost?

It is really pricy but if it lasts, then it is worth buying

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.

Brands such as North Face are quite popular, and $50 seems quite cheap compared to many on the market.

One essential is that it is warm, and has a powder skirt. There is nothing worse than snow going up your back when you wipeout..

50.00 is really cheap for a winter jacket. The last one I bought, I waited till it was moved to the 50% off section, and it was still over a hundred dollars.

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.
