Default summer shredding

hi there,

I was just wondering, what do people usually wear in the summer while snowboarding? I'm going to whistler this year for a summer camp but I have no idea what to wear...On those summer shred vids i see people wearing just tee's to wearing jackets etc.

I overheat pretty easily...my set up is usually just a tank and then my volcom jacket (somewhat like a shell, pretty light) on a normal shred day in whistler (maybe a fleece if it's colder than -10)

Could you please give me your opinion on if I could just wear my normal snowboarding pants (pretty thick) and this hoodie --> Mens Snow Star Pullover Hoodie - DC Shoes like would this be too hot? If so, do you know what brand carries thinner waterproof hoodies?

Thanks! (:

PS yes I know it's a "mens" hoodie but all the girl ones are so tight fitting and ew overall

I'm a hot natured mofo too. For one, get some uninsulated pants. I don't own a single piece of insulated outerwear. There's no need IMO. You can always layer up underneath if need be. Uninsulated outerwear just provides more flexibility.

Don't wear a T-shirt unless you feel like getting snow/ice burn, summer snow is super abrasive and will fuck you up.

Depending on how hot it is, I usually wear a hoodie or long sleeve shirt and just normal shell pants. It really all depends on the weather though, it can still get pretty cold in the summer

The key is that if the sun is shining, it's hella warm, and as soon as it gets blocked by clouds it gets hella cold in comparison. You might be fine in a T-shirt until the sun gets blocked and then you'll be freezing. I'd see you getting too hot in that hoodie on a warmer day, but it might be wise to drag it around anyways.

As far as an underlayer, I like to do the T-shirt on top of a long-sleave T-shirt.

Bring a backpack.

Extra gear, some food & drink, a mickey of Southern Comfort sipping Whiskey & extra Zig-Zags.

Minus the booze & skins, didn't realize you were 14.

Don't wear a wife beater, I used to go up there for August long weekend.
It is insanely hot, but I got the worst sunburn on the underside of my arms, my armpits & the upper sides of my ribs.
The reflection off the snow is like a thousand suns.

We wear dry ride/water proof hoodies... That dc one looks hot..... Volcom, Burton and mueller make good ones. Here's the link to the mueller one.... The volcom and Burton are zip up. The mueller is a pullover. Mueller seems more durable than the other two.

its been in the 60s here and he is good with all of them so far. He will be riding this summer at mt hood with them too in similar conditions.

He found the muesports one not as hot as the burton one for some reason. his volcom is for straight up HOT days now. it isnt warm at all.

..Ok I'm really dumb, but how do you know how "hot"/thick a hoodie is? DC seems to like to put in as little description as possible on their products...Maybe I just don't know how to read the specs properly

I'm looking for the thinnist (but waterproof) hoodie possible. Could someone please explain what I would be looking for specs wise? Like I have no idea what 5k means for breathability/waterproofing etc.

I'm about to buy the "Snow Star" hoodie from DC but it looks really thick..
