Hey everyone I am not very familiar when it comes to snowboarding gear and what brands are good/bad to get. Right now I have a northface jacket but it is so poofy I cant stand it anymore. I need something without the poof but something that is warm like that. I was looking around the $150 dollar range and with it being summer maybe I could catch a good deal from last years gear. Here are some that I was looking at what do you guys think?
Thumbs up for 686. Their stuff is pretty burly and will last a long time. I had a 686 Smarty UZI for a long time. It was my first jacket and survived the abuse of both learning to ride and learning park. It didn't even have any scuffs on the shell and always kept me dry.
Such a nice jacket, tried it on like 5 times last season up in Vermont and talked myself out of the $250+ pricetag every time.
Rome makes quality stuff and this bad boy has 15k/15k and fully taped seams. Also has included liner for when you do want to just rock it as a shell on a bluebird day.
Also you are buying from Backcountry which has got to be easily in the top 3 retailers around for SB gear.
