Foursquare jacket and quality - clearance

I want to take advantage of the end of season clearance and was looking at stuff from Foursquare, specifically this jacket:

Men's Foursquare Aaron Snowboard Jacket - Wakeside

From what I gather this jacket is a 2010 model but no idea when it was manufactured.
Was this still being made last year? Is the the 3L 25k/10k rating true and comparable to gore-tex? I just got a burton cannon 10k/10k way below MRSP from a local store but wouldn't mind returning.


I understand Foursquare (and some others) were discontinued by Burton. What about the quality of Foursquare stuff (pants, etc) compared to Burton?

Thanks.

Foursquare and special blend are(were) the shit. It sucks bad they're no longer. My favorite jacket ever is foursquare.

I've got a 15K/15K Foursquare jacket that I've been using for 2 seasons now and it's held up great in the wet PNW conditions. Super comfy too

I have a foursq jacket and pants. Both are awesome..no regrets. Lots of thinking was put into the stuff. Lifetime warranty is also a bonus..

Lifetime warranty? I have two foursquare items that are in dire need of repair

How does the warranty work?

Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."
