Decent Jacket?

Hey,

I'm looking for a decent jacket to go with a pair of pants i just picked up pretty cheap.

Ideally Pow skirt, Wrist Gaiters, lift pass pocket and a colour style that will match with these.

Dont wanna be breaking the bank $350 ceiling if its beasty or am i being unrealisitic? some insulation is fine, dont want too much cos i'll be using this for all weather and can always layer more if its cold. Im thinking i can get away with less waterproofing on the jacket, pants i tend to sit down a lot so i went for gore-tex

Was thinking a dark maroon but open to suggestions, anyone got any good reccomendations on a sturdy jacket? Obviously colour is secondary to the specs and quality but still a consideration

Cheers

Forecast and Satellite look wicked, definitely look at them more. I know Arcteryx is supposed to be the dogs..but no pow skirt or wrist gaiters at that price would be a deal breaker for me, does look awesome though. Thanks so far, keep em coming!

Might want to check out Homeschool. I have the Dangermare (night) and totally love it, has pow skirt, only catch is no wrist-gaiters. The Naked Raygun has a color of maroon. Backcountry.com has last seasons 50% off.
