Default looking for a new jacket

im lookin to get a new jacket, stuff i want includes: wrist gaitors, powder skirt, fitted/tailored look, warm but not to big or bulky, removable liner is a plus but not necessary, im liking the looks of 686 and special blend mosty and some burton and north face if its not to expensive. i probably want to keep it under 200. do yall have any suggestion? any experience with a jacket that you loved? i dont really want anything to wild a crazy loking. i would like to be able to wear it without a snowboard strapped to my feet. any thoughts? maybe something nice from last year thats on clearance. i think i wear a size M or L.

No. Many share many similar features, but they aren't always the same. Sierrasnowboard also doesn't always list ALL the features so you should cross-check the manufacturer's website for more information.

I have the Foursquare Steve-O jacket.
It has:
-Powder Skirt
-Fully taped seams/zippers
-Snap connection on powder skirt to pants (which I couldn't get to work well with my Foursquare Q pants)
-goggle/lens pocket on bottom right corner of jacket
-Built in polyester balaclava
-built in retractable lift pass holder (comes in pretty handy)
-Two inside pockets
-Two exterior breast pockets
-left forearm pocket
-"stash" pocket on right back side of jacket
