aubzobot Yea I've got volcom TDS stuff, works well for those cold days and it works great great even if you dont zip it together!

snowklinger I would have to wear insulated Arc' gear on the moon, otherwise I'd be too hot.

Justin i have tried on a lot of bon fire jackets and really liked the fit however the longer jackets often dont come with wrist gaiters or pow skirts from them.

Most companies make a long fitting jacket, dogfunk has the best site search that i have found.
Oakley Originate Long Jacket - Men's from
O'Neill Seb Toots Premium Jacket - Men's from
Ride Hawthorne Insulated Jacket - Men's from
Burton GMP 2L Kohlman Insulated Jacket - Men's from
Ride Capitol Down Jacket | evo outlet
Ride Laurelhurst Jacket | evo outlet

i have a nike gortex shell and a airblaster parker jacket that both have long fits. DC makes long fitting jackets as well you just have to do a little bit of looking.

Nolan If you are a powder guy and you have some money to spend you might look into jackets that zip into the pants, better than a powder skirt.

Trbo323 Dont like lots of layers, id rather wear by base layer and a long sleeve shirt and the jacket rather than a lot of layers under a shell. Not to mention im a powder guy, steep and deep and 0F is "getting a little cold" so when it hits -20 I can wear a few layers under an insulated jacket rather than 20 under a shell

a bag of it My first suggestion is to learn how to stand while waiting for friends, then your ass won't get cold.

My second suggestion is more of a question...why are you against shells?

looking for some advise on a jacket

I have decided it is about time to retire my 5 year old oxide jacket, in the last few years I have tried on a number of jackets and the ones that always seem to fit me best are the bonfire jackets.

So you are probably thinking, "so go buy a bonfire jacket", well I would but here is the thing, sofar I have not found a bonfire jacket that has everything I want in it. maybe it is out there but I have just not come across it yet.

I need a powder skirt and really like to have the elastic cuffs in the arms. must be an insulated jacket and preferably long. I like the bonfire "long fit" jackets but it seems that a lot of them are shell jackets. when I sit on the snow I like to have the jacket under me so I dont freeze my ass off waiting for the slower portions of my friends when on the mountains.

any suggestions?
