Mr. Right If you were going hunting would you bring a BB gun? Why not just get a real snowboarding jacket? There are a ton of jackets on right now for up to 60% off. There are plenty of jackets to be had for under $100 bucks that are good jackets. It will likely be one of the least expensive things you end up buying as you get into snowboarding. Just save a few pennies and get equipment made for what you are doing, in the long run it will be worth it.

yusoweird any non cotton fleece is good for mid layer. i personally like old navy 100% polyester fleeces. they are warm, breaths well, and cheap! but it will be worth it to really invest in a 15k and up shell. sierrasnowboard sell some for like $50-ish

Glade Ripper It does get a little brisk at times out there. Grow a beard too if you are looking to save cash. That way you don't have to buy protection for your face on sub 0 days.

Thermals, wool socks and a sweatshirt are the most widely used combo as base layers. I will never own anything but airblaster ninja suit for thermals. It's a one piece suit so no snow down the back and it has a hood and an ass zip so you can poo without taking it all off

Glade Ripper I ride in some fairly cold temperatures. Last year i cracked the lens of my goggles because I fell on them doing a backside 3 when it was -10 with windchill. I typically like a coat with a little bit of insulation just because then you are quite as bulked up in under layers. I did however buy a shell last year and can ride with that as long as it is above 10. I wear airblaster ninja suit for long underwear and i have some extremely warm sweatshirts that are water repellent. NYinfamous is right when he says base layers make a difference. If you invest in good base layers you can get away with a non-insulated jacket

NYinfamous2k2 What kind of base layers are you going to wear? To me the first layer makes all the difference in the world, I would Highly recommend getting on of those underArmor cold gear mock neck tight base layers, if you want to save some $ try one on in the store to get the size and model then buy it on ebay or something. but I wouldnt skimp on your warmth. yea you dont have to get the most expensive jacket, but these underarmors make a hell of a difference. I ride out east and all I wear is that base layer and my shell jacket most of the time if it gets real cold then I throw a cheap fleese on as well and Im never cold.

killclimbz Don't use a cotton sweatshirt. Get something that is synthetic. Using a shell and layers is fine otherwise.

Sam I Am go to ebay or craig's list and you can find a good quality jacket (name brand if you want) for under a hundred dollars. it's what i did, and will continue doing seeing as i keep finding holes in my wallet. this economy is sucking everyone dry....
