Opinions on Some Gear
 
Hey guys,

I recently started a thread on what goggles to get and will be ordering those soon. Like I previously said, I don't snowboard too often. A few times a year, but now that I can drive I will probably be snowboarding a bit more. Hopefully a few week long trips to Colorado next year.

Pretty much I'm looking for what pants to get, nothing crazy expensive, but something that is comfortable and will keep me dry.

I could also use a nicer pair of gloves, something that will be pretty dry and really warm.

I currently own:
Columbia Titanium, Omni-heat shell.
First accent Fleece
Compression Pants for running, they typically keep me warm in windy 15 degrees.

Just ordered the Dragon Apx 2014, Green Ionized + Yellow lens for $100.

Dog Funk matched Whiskey Militia's price on the Neff Daily riding pants. I got some mediums for $47.

Lastly I ordered the PROFILE GLOVE - MEN'S through DogFunk.

Let me know any opinions, hope I didn't buy the wrong gear!

You're gonna be fine. Just get on the hill.

I'm heading out next weekend for Boone, the next I'm heading to Colorado. It should be a blast!

Do you have a baselayer top for under the fleece? Socks...what are you doing for socks?

NO cotton for any of the above.

A friend rides in one of those Columbia Omni heat reflective jackets and loves it.

Oh, also neck warmer/face mask/gaiter if you don't already have them.

For my base layer I plan to wear a under Armour, followed by a long sleeve Patagonia. Polyester. I then wear my first accent fleece 100% Polyester. I follow that by my Columbia Shell.

I do need some socks, all my old pairs have holes in them.

I'm looking at face masks, but I'll more than likely use a sleeve. I currently own one of these:
e4Hats.com: Neoprene Half Face Mask - Black

However mine is 90% Neoprene and 10% Polyester.



I want a down jacket that'll keep me warm, I found this on steep and cheap and loved it.
Thermostatic Insulated Hooded Jacket - Men's - 70% Off | Steep & Cheap

Sounds good!

You may not need that Thermostatic jacket with the layering system you have thus far. All depends on how hot/cold you run. But the price is good so why not get it haha. (...the guiding principle of most all my outerwear purchases.)

Definitely get on ordering socks; I've seen some recent deals on the discount websites.

Runner Dude 14 01-05-2014 08:31 PM

got a favorite pair for the price? Also, do you think I'll look like a goon with the Neff Pants (Paint Design) and a Black Columbia Shell, and then Green Ionized Dragon APX's

Runner Dude 14 01-07-2014 02:06 AM

Finally got it all purchased *sigh*
