New Outerwear

Hey guys. As most of you know I've been out of the game for awhile. Getting back into it I'm looking into new outerwear. I need advice. I'm partial to 686, DC, and mostly Sessions... huge fan of sessions gear.

I'd like solid colors like blue, red or black. No crazy looking paterns. And I don't care if the jacket and pants match. IDGAF about looking good.

I'd rather keep total cost of both jacket and pants under $300, however 10k/10k (maybe i'd stoop to 8k depends on price/brand) or better is a MUST. Keep in mind I like to layer.

And it doesn't have to be this years. It could be 5 years old as long as it works and isn't used.

Oh, and any glove suggestions would be great. Thanks you fuckers. &heart;

life IS good.

I do appreciate the link, however I'm looking for other people's opinions and suggestions on gear they have or have used

for gloves i would have to suggest candy grind, i have their hand bag mittens and def the warmest and most durable mitten ive worn to date. they are a little pricey coming in around $90 but i had a pair last me a whole season while most gloves/mittens wont last me much longer then a month or 2 before being shredded.

Awesome thanks for the suggestion smit. I don't mind spending good money on gloves, I've got girl hands, yet i shred my gear pretty hard. I'll look into them, thanks

my favorite part about them are the glove liners you get with the higher end mittens and gloves, super water proof and perfect for spring riding. plus with the mittens AND the liners on half the time my hands are actually too hot even on some colder days.
the mittens also come with a side zipper in case you need to use you fingers for anything and dont want to actually take your whole glove off or just need to vent your hands a little cause its getting to warm.

686 still makes dope stuff. I have a 2.5 Smarty Jacket that i would recommend to everyone. I also like Nomis, they do have some stuff that in solid colors.

Backcountry dumps a lot of new gear onto Geartrade.com. Because Backcountry (Dogfunk) have an unlimited return policy, you see a lot of returns that are NWT that people tried and returned they have to sell as "used". Just read the description and check to see that it is actually "new". The other place they dump gear that hasn't been returned is DepartmentofGoods. I'm not sure if you are a support LBS type or don't mind buying from big box stores, but there are some killer deals on the internet.
