Wow...leave this thread for two days and look what happens...

Thanks for the replies. In terms of what I'm looking for, I'd say a shell or lightly insulated shell, probably in the range of $150-250. I ride mostly northeast and have always been a layer-er, partly because I hate getting too hot in a jacket and partly because all the puffys are really expensive.

I'll check Burton AK and Arc-Teryx...

EDI: Ok maybe not Arcteryx...I can dream though...

trick for Arc' is to get it in early march for at least 40% off. last year i paid $280 for a $500 jacket. year before that did the same thing for pants.

686 has by far the best jackets. They're all made for any type of snowboarding and have a crap load of features at a big range of prices.
Whatever you do, make sure your jacket brand's waist gaiters (powder skirts) are compatible with your snowboarding pants. 686, Burton, Foursquare, Ride and most others use the standard 3-loop connection (2 loops on the sides of the waist and 1 in the center of the back, on the pants.)
There are some though, such as Volcom, which use zipper connections to the pants. I'm not sure about Ripzone and Dakine, because I can't see any loops on their pants besides the belt loops. So make sure you get that right!

This is a tasty burger.

Nope. I'm just saying that all you seem to do is disagree with people, but never actually suggest anything that can help instead.
