Need new jacket/pants help
So I went snowboarding for the first time this winter and loved it. I would like to continue with it, but I need some gear. The carhartt coat and bibs I have do NOT work well with excess amounts of snow contact from falling. So, I've been looking for a coat and pants. I need some gloves too, but I am sure I can manage those. I have a limited budget so I need stuff on sale and I also want the coat to be something I can wear on an everyday basis. Therefore, I was thinking columbia would be a good brand for the coat. I was just wondering if anyone had any good websites to check out that are well trusted? Also, any feedback on times of the year to go to local ski/snowboard shops for big deals would be great! Im thinking somewhere in the $100-200 range for the coat and around $100 for the pants. Less if possible.
