Your price in title doesn't match your post. You also didn't mention a size

Here you go anyways. These are the whole lists:

Mens Insulated Jackets | Snowboards.net

Mens Insulated Jackets | Snowboards.net

These are my recommended ones:

Burton Restricted Ratched Mens Insulated Snowboard Jacket 2010

Volcom Taylor's Mens Insulated Snowboard Jacket 2010

Burton Ronin Gore-Tex Cheetah Mens Insulated Snowboard Jacket 2009

Vans UY Mens Insulated Snowboard Jacket 2009

I have this next one. Sick jacket. Lots of pockets and features, great waterproofness, and warm. Plus it comes with a sick little removable vest lol. You also can't beat the lifetime warranty on it. Keep your receipt if you get it. Burton will replace the jacket if they can fix it. If they don't have any more of that style, they'll give you the next year's up. Gnarly? Just a tad

Burton Noble Gentleman's Mens Insulated Snowboard Jacket 2009

This is a sick Vans jacket for a steal of a price.

Vans Kento Mens Insulated Snowboard Jacket 2009

Vans Down Supreme LTD Mens Insulated Snowboard Jacket 2009

Again, you didn't mention size so I just threw in everything I could lol.

If the coldest you see your self boarding in is 20 degrees I would avoid insulated jackets. Just get a shell and use layers. The more adjustable your clothes are the more comfortable you will be. 20 degrees isn't really cold and you could be stuck sweating your ass off with an insulated jacket if it is all you have available.

I haven't had a chance to use it yet but I really like my Special Blend I got for a great price. Special Blend Control - Snowboard Ski Jacket Reviews & Sale | SierraSnowboard.com

We have plenty of non-insulated jackets. I wear nothing but insulated jackets and I consistently ride in around 20 degree weather.

Sure, get a shell. Put more layers on and restrict your mobility. Or you can just get and insulated jacket and wear nothing but a t-shirt under it if you get a bit warm.

Another reason to get insulated. The shell limits you to warmer temps. What if it gets colder? What if you go ride somewhere else that is colder? Do you really want to put on 5 layers of clothes under that shell just to stay warm?

Shells are great... for spring shredding. 20 degrees is winter. I am also positive that you didn't factor in the wind-chill. You also need to remember that insulated jackets have zip vents that you can open.

Are you still too warm? Just use regular t-shirt over a long-sleeve. Wear a hoody even. Hell, buy a insulated jacket on sale and use the rest of your budget for a shell. Now you will be set for all conditions.

No! Check out snowboards.net. We have a price match guarantee!

Sorry, that was too aggressive. If you don't see what you want through us, at the very least, please take my advise on Insulated vs Shell. Happy Shreddin!

the thing with steepandcheep is that you have to stalk the site, as i am this thread.
+1 on the shell- or a removable liner
