What's your favorite outer wear brand?

I'm bored, my stomach hurts from drinking :P and I thought I'd just raise a question!
I haven't had too much experience with different brands but so far I'm liking Burton

I really like the Burton AK jackets, it's expensive but really well made. Bonfire and 686 are also good, although my Bonfire pants seem to be a bit more durable than my 686 pants.

686 makes some sweet stuff. Their Smarty line is pretty versatile, warm and durable. The Original Cargo Pant is good as well as the Smarty jackets.

I like Nomis for their hoodies and I have a couple pairs of their pants as well. They fit baggier so you can wear true to size and have room to layer underneath without looking ilke the Marshmallaw guy from Ghostbusters.

QuikSilver makes some really sick stuff, but some of it is overpriced.

Burton makes pretty good outerwear, I just think their jackets are overpriced for what you get.

I still haven't found my "perfect jacket." I'm always looking for something Goretex (or at least 20k/20k), technical fit without being too tight, lightweight, wrist gaiters, and a very simple design.

Last season I had a Burton AK Stagger jacket that I put over 30 days in. I was not impressed. The velcro on the wrists always got clogged with pow and never held, the arm length was a bit too short and without wrist gaiters, I always got snow down my sleeves. By the end of the season the Goretex was very worn and needs a serious recharge.

I'm super stoked on Oakley's PRS Jake Blauvelt jacket for the coming season. It looks a lot closer to the "perfect jacket" than the AK was.

Mannn I'm thinking about returning my over priced "Burton Biltmore Snowboard Jacket Brimstone Painted Buffalo Plaid 2011" that I just ordered and will be here tomorrow There goes another $10 for shipping lol I guess that's what I get for not researching the product before buying it. Thanks for all the input guys!

Ride Spacecraft FTW. So nice, so light, and oh so very dry.
My Runners-up would be Rome, FourSquare, Grenade, Special Blend, and Columbia.
