|brownSnow||from my experience, 3 solid brands to check out. Helly Hansen, Oakley & Orage (orage is more ski based, however highly tech & well made clothing)|

|Triple8Sol||I've had very good experiences with 686 and Burton outerwear. Haven't been impressed with 32, other than bang for the buck style and specs on paper, but durability was not good. Picked up a Nike jacket for this year, so we'll see how that goes.|

|KnoxBoarderX||My favorite is Burton. I picked up the gore-tex grill jacket this year. It's awesome!|

I have had great experience with the higher end 686 stuff, been in some pretty gnarly weather and you can hunker down pretty well in their Smarty gear, its not Gore but 25K does the job. I have had one season in an Orage jacket and its really good kit, ski brand but much better quality than most of the snowboard branded stuff and its based out of BC. Burton can suck balls, their stuff is junk IMO. I think Mountain Hardwear gives better value than the Arc'terx stuff, but to each his own. Can't go wrong with either IMO.
Of the Snow brands I feel Orage makes some of the best kit.

|Sudden_Death||For run of the mill outerwear I like Sessions' stuff. Always fits me well and holds up to a decent amount of abuse. I haven't had the need for any of the more extreme mountaneering stuff where I am.|

hahah i get proforms for Patagonia and i will still pay top dollar MSRP for Arc'teryx stuff.
with Patagonia its either a skinny, bad fit on anything that doesn't have a liner - or a nice cut, snowboard styling, and all these retarded mesh liners and heavy face fabrics. liners fucking suck balls, and Patagonia needs to get their shit together as far as snowboarding gear is concerned. no liners on high end gear.

So far I've had a good experience with my Volcom pants and Sessions jacket.
One day last year I was on the mountain from open close (8am - 4pm) in a constant rain shower with this setup. I stayed bone dry. Even with sitting on the lift all day long my butt didn't get wet.

|Hawkfan79||Patagonia, very high quality stuff and one the best return/warranty policies in the business.|
