Good jacket and gloves?

Plan on getting me a good jacket (I would prefer one that will button up to my Bonfire pants to keep the pow off my back but not necessary) and some good gloves with my christmas money. Hoping to stay under 250 for the jacket and like 75 for the gloves. What would everyone recommend?

Go cheap or go home! j/k

You can play it safe and stick to common brands like Foursquare, 686, Special Blend, etc on sites like sierrasnowboard.com. Make sure you get stuff that is at least 15k waterproof or higher because snow is actually made out of water!

As for gloves... there are a ton to choose from. Take your pick. Get something waterproof and goretex that has liners

College is so expensive that even with a job I'm losing like $500 a month lol. Cheap is good.

Anyways thanks for the tips

Layers keep you warm

Educate yourself on layers and you can ride a shell anywhere.

I only have a 5k/5k shell but it does me good everywhere I've been so far

if you want mitts, check out the Black Diamond Mercury. I just got a pair of these and the're amazing. I wrote up a review: Mercury Mitt: Damn are these things warm! | Chinese Downhill. They're a little more than you want to spend (about $85), but totally worth it. it was below zero on the day I first tried them out, and my hands never felt cold all day.
