Nmbr1Ballr Ya that is just the default color it brings up, I agree and would most likely get the black. I could get that jacket and these pants Special Blend Mark Shell Pant - Men's from Dogfunk.com and it would be about the same price I paid for the jacket I have now alone. And that jacket is slightly insulated and has even better ratings and hopefully won't feel like a $20 windbreaker like what I have now.

Nmbr1Ballr I'm returning the jacket I just got. I put on two sweaters I found as if i was layering up, and the jacket could use a little more room. I am debating whether to get the same jacket in a size up for $145 or get this jacket http://www.dogfunk.com/snowboard/SPE...cket-Mens.html

It says # ThermaBase technology for comfort, insulation, water resistance, and stretch
# 92% polyester / 8% spandex.

Could spend $40 less and rock my team as well. Kill two birds with one stone

yes that should work fine and may i say good choice on teams haha

really all i ever is a thermal of some sort as a base layer, t-shirt, than my zip up hoody and that keeps me warm enough. if its a little warmer out ill take the hoody off or if its colder just add another thermal or underamour type shirt.

First link is out of stock, but definitely might get the second. Mine is a small, but I could see what a medium would be like. Thanks

arsenic0 Yes that will work well..

Get some Smartwool or Underarmor or some type of good base layer depending on how much you want to spend...

That plus a fleece + shell will keep you warm...thats what i've worn more or less every time i've ever gone out.

The coat doesnt look flashy or anything, but it does have good spec's and should work fine as long as your happy with the look...ignore all the people who want to have goddamn rainbow jackets with 60 zippers to look cool snowboarding :d

Nmbr1Ballr When I started boarding last year, I just wore a bunch of shirts, a hoodie, and a jacket. So when I want to start layering properly, would a thermal beginning layer along with a north face fleece jacket underneath this jacket I just purchased be enough to keep me warm? I am looking into proper layering instead of wearing 5 t shirts etc lol. Also is a north face fleece a good idea? Anything else that you think works just as well. Don't really want to spend another $150 on the jacket when I just paid $240 for this one, but if thats what keeps me warm, then thats what I'll do.
