Arrow Jacket for Canada

Was thinking of getting either of these two

Burton Poacher Burton Poacher Jacket | Burton Snowboards
or
Burton Meristem GMP Burton Meristem Jacket | Burton Snowboards

My main question was would the Poacher be warm enough for a season in Canada?

I recommend layering. If you buy an insulated jacket you're kinda stuck with it unless you plan to have more than one.

Yea, id probably say layering. Nothing like having a thick insulated jacket on a bloody warm day. But then you can just wear a hoodie or something if you don't have a jacket, or even a tee shirt if its that warm.

make sure you get a canada goose jacket, it's the only way to survive those horrible canadian winters!

but seriously, don't get a bulky jacket just for canada, layering is your best bet.

No i'm pretty sure its those polar bear fur jackets that keep Canadians warm, i should know. And cant forget the beaver hide toques.

Seriously, just do what they're saying, just layer.

I'm looking to upgrade my jacket too...

I have a Volcom Secondary jacket, which is advertized as no insulation, but it does have a bit of fleece like material around the neck and back.

With it on days when its -10 plus windchill so -20 in the end, i have my HH base layer, then a wool sweater, then a light fleece....and its still cold at times.

The jacket is baggy, so I think that this actually adds to the fact that I'm cold

You will only be riding in temps down to -20 C.

I am assuming you are here for a season?

While it will get colder than that the snow turns to crap about -20ish. Its gets very very sticky no matter what wax you have. So your jacket doesnt have to be amazing.

I ride in a burton shell, hoody, t shirt and thermal. I find my hands and face get cold before the rest of my body does.
