Default Anyone ever worn Orage gear?

Hey guys,

So I picked up a very nice Orage jacket last year (I believe they are a ski brand?) and I must say that I absolutely love it. Very similar to this. Just wondering if anyone else has worn any of their gear and if they like it or not? I'm in the market for a new(er) jacket and pants, but I wasn't sure what any of their other gear is like. I had never heard of the brand and bought the jacket on a clearance sale at a local store and I ended up finding a ton of nice features built in. Very warm and extremely well-built.

Also, feel free to recommend any other similar brands that you might like.

meh skier company trying to break into the snowboard market. Personally there are tons of other companies I would purchase from before them. Sessions, L1, and Bond are companies I would personally get stuff from before Orage.

I've heard of Sessions before, seems to be a very nice brand. Only reason I bought the Orage jacket was because a) it was cheap ($80 for a $200+ jacket) and b) It was my first time buying my own gear and I just wanted something that worked.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check them out!

Whats the difference between ski and snowboard jackets? I usually wear DC or Analog jackets because I like the fit and they are almost always on whiskeymilita.com

But is there really a difference between a ski and snowboard jacket? Don't they have the exact same purpose?

I just like to support companies that started out as a snowboarding company and not trying to cross over since they see more money in the snowboarding market. Personal preference for sure but might as well support companies that support snowboarding.

Personal preferences aside -- the question was has anyone worn Orage -- yes, I've got a jacket and a pair of pants from them.

Haven't had a complaint about either and both 10k/10k. I've found they cut a little narrower than most (I guess they're European?). But I've liked the gear. I've liked even more that I find it at closeout prices.

Thanks for the answer I was looking for haha. No, I don't really care if it's a ski or snowboard company, but as far as I'm concerned they're basically the same. No, I'm not returning it, I've already owned it for a year. I was just looking for some opinions on their gear as this is the only piece of gear I've worn from them. It was just a curiosity question, not like I'll be rocking their gear exclusively for the rest of my life.
