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.

Here's what I ride - Columbia Men's Titanium Rodeo Magic ll Parka. I love it! It's versatile and comfy as hell. Plus it has a lifetime Warranty.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

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
