Default What's your favorite Outerwear and Accessories Brands/Companies ?

I recently discovered Spacecraft for accessories and have become totally infatuated with their approach to business .. I'm a sucker for really artistic endeavors.

I've been a staunch Burton loyalist ever since I started snowboarding 18 years ago .. so I always have a quality piece of gear from them in my setup at any given time .. which means also by association I am a big fan of Analog, RED, AK, ANON, etc. as well

I also have a particularly, relatively new found appreciation for 686, DC, & Foursquare.

So my all time favorites to recap are Analog, Burton, Spacecraft, 686, & DC

What are all your favorites !! please do share .. i'm totally interested ;D

thnx for your time

Snowboards: Burton Shaun White collection only, Lib Tech, Ride

Bindings: Flow, I want to try Rome's and Unions

Outerwear: Burton Shaun White collection only

Baselayers: Under Armour, Smart Wool

Socks <-: Under Armour... Something about the way this sock fits feels really good. It's has more padding in the toe and heel area and fits more snug on those points. Yes, I have Shaun White socks as well

Goggles: Shaun White A-Frame Oakley Asian fit, Dragon, Smith <-love the I/O, but doesn't fit me

Gloves: Burton Gore-Tex

Helmet: Smith Variant

Masks: UA Hood, Seirus Balaclava, Random fleece lined bandana

Beanies: Adidas and Burton Billboards are the only ones that fit my big head without making me look like a friggen' mushroom.

Did I miss anything? I like Gatorade to fuel me then an ice cold Bud Light during lunch.

I love my 686 stuff. I have an Uzi jack and original cargo pants.
Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

I love Ride for my stick and bindings, although I will pretty much ride anything that fits on my feet

The best fitting boots for me are 32s or Celsius

I usually wear Special Blend, 686 or Foursquare stuff with moderate ratings as I ride in SoCal. Only exceptions for the past few seasons are my Burton socks and DaKine Bronco Gloves.

Pants: I have used mostly Oakley pants in the past, but recently purchased a much raved about pair of 686 Original Cargo pants. I will use them on my next trip. The Oakley's did the job ok, but they were cheap (Fort Cord was the model) The 686 appear to be very well constructed with great features. I'll likely never have to buy another pair of snowboarding pants.

Jacket: I have two Oakley jackets. Both are great jackets with no complaints at all in either model (Infantry and Link 2.7) If 686 comes out with a pattern I like, I'd likely give them a try for my jacket too. I'd like to try the discontinued model (Uzi), but haven't found one in my size or color preference. I rarely have any need to wear jackets in Texas, but for some reason have become a jacket junkie. I browse all the hot sites for deals on jackets.

Gloves: Last year I used Oakley Strike mitts and even with heat packs, my fingers got cold. I bought a pair of Swany (SX-31 or something like that) gloves while I was in Dillon, CO last year. Great pair of gloves, I only wish I bought the same model in mittens. I suffer from poor circulation in my hands. I'll probably end up buying a pair of mitts my next trip. I've read a lot of great reviews on the Burton Gore Tex, so I'm leaning toward those.

Socks: Under Armour and Smartwool

Baselayer: I have Oakley baselayer pants (wicking material) that I scored on one of the short sale sites (Brociety etc.) I wear a Nike Pro top with moisture wicking material. Same one I use when I play baseball.

Beanie: 686 earflap beanie

I bought a pair of Odlo base layer pants to keep me warm.. they were advertised as 'the' European leaders of base layers. I gotta say it kept me quite warm and the material they use is very thin and comfortable.. might want to give it a try if you ever cross by it.. though I've never seen it in NA. All my other base layer stuff is UA which everybody already knows is good.

Rock AK stuff for jacket and pants. Goretex is awesome!
