title says it all really.
Im going on my first now boarding trip to Japan in late Feb early March, and am looking at buying my first lot of gear.
I have just bought my pants online. I got the Burton 2012 Cargo.
I think i made a good choice there.
Looking into all the other gear i need to buy i may need a little help.
Im not a huge fan of the big massive snowboarding jackets.
Can i get a soft-shell jacket like this?https://www.torpedo7.com.au/products...ftshell-hoodie
Its just an example. But i was wondering how something like this would hold up as the outer layer?
Base layer, i have read a lot about merino wool. Does anyone have any other suggestions for this?
Maybe brands and types that would be great
I was thinking about this sort of set up but not sure if it is recommended as i have never been to the snow before.
If anyone can point me in the right direction of what i should be looking at per layer, that would be great.
Base layer: merino wool, thermals???
Mid Layer: maybe a fleece hoodie or jumper???
SoftShell: jacket like listed above???
thanks all for reading and hope to get some great advice.
