ridinbend If your not spending a large portion of your time riding in stormy weather, any jacket will do.

ryannorthcott I've got an oakley down jacket and a quiksilver shell. I don't like layering so I throw on my wicking burton crew with the down for temps -5 and below and for anything higher rock the shell. My shell wouldn't last me below -15 without some sort of down insulation, and any down mid layer I can find is the same price or higher than my oakley jacket, plus it is bulky and another thing to put on and take off. That's my two cents

thatkidwho Heres a start for a 3 in 1 http://www.backcountry.com/marmot-ra...FYeUfgodLCQARg

I prefer separates because you can dial in your needs. Ex. I prefer fleeces with thumb holes or a packable shell.
But everyone has there preferences and needs.

ThredJack Really, for ultimate versatility, a 3-in-1 is the best option. Just take out the lining if it's too warm.

But a shell jacket is always a great option. Especially since 3-in-1's are not too common it would seem.

There's a reason the bulk of snowboard jackets on the market seem to be shells.

thatkidwho I suggest the shell option too. More warm/cool options. Most days a base layer and R1 fleece our enough warmth. Sometimes a heavier fleece. I do have a heavy HH parka for single digits though but I've had that forever.

There are many good companies, burton, OR, patagonia, volcom, etc. Most are on sale now too. I recently picked up an OR 3l gortex shell for $200

ThredJack Insulated or shell?

If you want warm, insulated jackets are warm, but they're not too versatile. Might be too warm during early or late season.

If you want something more versatile, a shell is the way to go. Base layer, plus a hoodie or fleece for colder mid season days. Base layer and just the jacket for warmer early/late season days.

Where do you ride, and what are normal conditions?

As far as brands, Quicksilver makes some nice jackets, as does Volcom.

Good boarding/skiing coat

Hi all! I'm looking for a good coat for next season. I do a lot of backwoods and mountain boarding and would like something warm with a good trim fit and preferably under $300. Any suggestions?
