Burton Field Jacket

So I have been looking around for a new jacket and came across this in white
On Sale Burton Field Snowboard Jacket up to 50% off

Is this jacket any good or should I avoid? Does anyone have any feedback or info on this jacket or what year it came out? I can't seem to find any information about it or reviews. It seems good with the 20/15 rating, but I am wondering what year this jacket came out as it seems odd that its 50% off and majority of the sizes are available.

any recommendations for around the $150 price range on other jackets?

Also how does that jacket compare to this by burton On Sale Burton Esquire Snowboard Jacket up to 50% off

I see the main difference is that this one is insulated. Is it better to have a shell or insulated if snowboarding out west?

The Burton field jacket is a lot better than the second one going by waterproof and breathibility. I also would rather have a shell and change my laying based on the weather rather than have an insulated jacket that I would only wear in the coldest of days.

I rarely wear more than a base layer and shell but I'm hot natured. If it's below 20 or so, I'll wear a thin wool mid layer.

Everyone is different, just have to figure out what works best for you.

First off, who cares what year it is as long as you like it. Lots of people here buy previous year stuff because of the great discounts you can get on it.

That shell is going to be more breathable and versatile because you can adjust layers underneath. I prefer that route myself, especially since Michigan can throw so many different types of weather at you. Plus I sweat a lot.

Go with the insulated jacket if you get cold easy and don't mind the loss of breathability. It will be fine if you aren't a heavy sweater or are in consistently dry and cold conditions.
