I have been looking around. I'm not lazy, haha. Just wondering if anyone has good ideas? I have found this Save on Bonfire Piper Snowboard Jacket Gold - Mens Snowboards Jackets Clothes Snowboarding Apparel Clothing

-But I'm not sure it's going to keep me warm enough? It looks a little light. Thoughts?

(and thanks but no thanks mijinkal)

If you're worried about being warm just wear layers. Spend the cash on breathability and waterproofing.

I only wear shells for jackets and layer with a fleece and thermal shirt.


The Oakley jacket is actually a pretty decent jacket and I'd keep it if I wanted the style and the insulation. With the bright pants you're trying to match it to I guess they're not the bland style you're looking for.

Remember if you're going to wear bright flashy clothes that bring attention to you, you better have the skills to back it up.

Good point about getting a coat, which yours is a good example of. And yes I agree, bright colors draw attention.
