As you said, two to three layers of fabric. The outermost layer must be a waterproof nylon, either a Gore-Tex fabric or a nylon fabric that has been treated with a teflon coating on the inside. The stitches of this layer must be heat taped or else moisture will get in, either that or just forgo stitches altogether and use a thermal press to glue the fabric sections together.

The middle layer is a synthetic fibre for warmth and is optional depending on how technical the jacket is going to be. I recommend using Prima-Loft. it's a thin fabric thats breathable and is used in very high quality sleeping bags, you can get it rated to either -5 degrees, -15 degrees, or -30 degrees. The colder it's rated for the thicker it will be.

The inner layer should be a breathable mesh or thin fabric that will wick moisture from the wearer.

Technical Features:

Your jackets must have a powder skirt at the waist of the jacket. I recommend doing one that is removable so someone can use the jacket for street wear. The powder skirt must have a strong elastic band around it and is best when it either snaps or zips into the pants.

Hood: The hood must be able to cover the mouth to protect from wind and is best when it does not obstruct the wearers blindspots.

Pockets: The two or four outer pockets must be sealed and moisture proof. line the pockets with a soft material that warms hands. The inner pockets should have zippers as well to protect from moisture, one pocket should have a little sleeve in it for the users iPod. The other pocket should come with a little soft cloth for the users goggles and is best when on a small elastic leash. There should also be an easily accessible goggle pocket on the inside.

Zippers: Use high quality plastic or even higher quality metal zippers. They must be able to stand extreme cold and extreme stress. I recommend RiRi Zippers.

Cuffs: The cuffs of the jacket should have a velcro strap to close the cuff around the wearers gloves. It is also a nice feature if you include cuff gaiters that the user wears around their wrist and seals the sleeve from snow.
Many Thanks. These are great comments. :-)

Whats funny is the movie commercial was on when I was typing that. Looks pretty badass.

I guess a snow covered mountain isn't the best place for a stealthy ninja like myself to try to blend.

BoardNbob There is such a variety of styles when it comes to snowboard outerwear. I personally like my clothes baggy and the colors don't even really match. My jacket is neon green so I like to stand out. Truthfully though, the most important part to me is the waterproof rating and the features. Media pocket, pass holder, zipper pockets, vents..etc.

CaptT My jacket has an awesome window on the arm for my pass to slide into, and I really dig that.....

sook OP, I really hope you design something that considers practicality first and style a close second. If you design some quality snow wear, you can make customers for life. Most of the snowboarders I know are obsessed with tech. With more people buying online these days, a long list of proven tech on a garmet will sell most people I ride with. My only suggestion for style is to weight your designs to 75% edgy, out-there fashions and 25% towards more classic style tastes. And "classic style" doesn't just mean solid black clothes. Last time I had to buy outerwear, it seemed like I had to choose between neon green and pink or dress like a ninja assassin.

Hilary Mona Well I have entered contests myself.Although I am twelve years old.Cute tracksuits are really suitable for a child aged 5 weeks.How about you find a fancy one with a matching top make sure its original.To be more authentic you could find some converse trainers for babies I know they are expensive but look really cute on babies.
