Default 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.

Dragon Apx Green Ionized Goggles

Burton Profile Gloves

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!

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.

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
