My dad has an arc' shell and it is does him well. Never has he been wet or cold when wearing it. I actually wear an armada shell with event tech. It is suppose to be a step up from gor-tex. I believe it. It is an amzing jacket with no flaws to it. I know its a ski jacket but who cares it high quality and i like the look.

I love my Columbia jacket. It's a part of the Titanium series. It has lasted 2 seasons now and is still going strong. Same thing with my Ripzone Trilogy pants. It may not be Gore-Tex, but the Omni-Tech that Columbia uses is good stuff. My pants have no Gore-Tex, but they are 20k and I never get wet unless I'm riding in a straight up downpour (which I have done).

I just returned my Burton Biltmore System Jacket because I heard you get soaked in it after half a day so I ordered an 2012 Ride Newport with WK print, hopefully it keeps me dry and warm haha

Anyone know too much about ride clothing?

btw: Arc'teryx deff looks like a boss brand but I wouldn't buy it unless I was an avid snowboarder that lived 30 mins or less away from a mountain but for now a regular snowboarding jacket will do lol I can't afford a $500 or more jacket :/

I'm a big fan of First Ascent from Eddie Bauer, the gear is top notch. It is a bit expensive but you can find the stuff on sale and get a great price. As some others have mentioned, the mountaineering companies make some great stuff.

Needed new gear this year, so I went with Special Blend in the end. Their pants are longer, which suits me great as I'm tall. These jacket & pants are currently on their way to me (assembled this in Keynote to give you some idea):

Yeah I stick with Mtn hardware, OR, Marmot or northface for anything gore-tex. Special Blend, DC and 686 are my choice for the cheaper side. Helps to be a pro member of all the higher end company's so I get 50% off.

sessions makes jackets that have a +2 fit, 2 extra inches on the sleaves and length. i ordered one but it won't be here for a while.
