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).

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

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 :/

Stance: Regular
Left Foot: 15+
Right Foot: 15-
Bindings: Burton Free Styles
Board: Ride Machete 164cm Wide 2011

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.

Huge fan of the Volcom fleece jackets, perfect for california boarding.

Too Fast!

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.
