I need Help!

I'm in the market for a new jacket....Any opinions on these?

1) Rome Cordova 3L Snowboard Jacket | Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate 2010

2) Men's Burton Poacher Snowboard Jacket | Burton Snowboard

3) 686 :: SMARTY COMPLETE

Any other suggestions? Thanks!

I've worn the Burton Poacher for a year and a half and it's been good, lots of pockets and plenty warm and waterproof for me even though it's only rated at 5000. I usually only wear the Poacher when the temp will stay near or below freezing, on warmer days I just wear a hoodie.

The 686 Smarty will probably be my next jacket. I have the Smarty Cargo pants and they are great so I would expect the jacket to be just as good.

I've used a lot of Rome gear and it's always been top quality. I can attest to their boards, bindings and boots, but I've never tried their outergear. Still, if it is as nice as the rest of their stuff, I'm sure it will work well for you.
