Best technical outerwear?

Looking for quality gear, probably just shells as I already have all my layering stuff. I also like to dress my age, tasteful colors/patterns. I prefer not to look like I fell out of a 90's OP catalog or a 70's thrift shop (I just dont get fashion these days maybe I'm to old) Ive been looking hard at the Oakley stuff, opinions?

If you're looking for something subdued and has fully functionality I suggest Under Armour. It's what I use. Not a company most people associate with snow sports but there gear is solid and their taste in style is much more in line with people who don't go for the bright, flashy or eye gouging stuff.

Yeah... It is too bad that their AK jackets' landing page features the wild fluo colors (which are the flavor of the season... 80s style)... If you take the time to browse through these, they are all available in much more subtle colors. By the way, Burton's AK line has a lifetime warranty.

I always have at least 1 down jacket amongst my riding outerwear.
Here are some specs from the AK 2L LZ Down Jkt:
+90/10 Ultra Premium 600 Goose Down Fill
+Fully Taped Seams with GORE-SEAM® Tape [13MM]
+GORE-TEX® Performance Shell [2-Layer]
+LIFETIME WARRANTY


I also agree with Kirkwood $lut: Mountain Hardware and North Face are great options!
