Left my jacket in the cold for a few hours

Hey all,

Probably a dumb question, but I just recently got a burton cushing down jacket with thinsulate insulation. I left it I'm below freezing weather for a couple hours in my car while I was inside my buddies house watching a movie. Will having left my jacket sit in the cold like that affect its Insulating abilities at all? thanks.

If it does how would it function as an insulating jacket?

Just when I start thinking there's no hope left for humanity, a thread like this comes along and seals the deal... Wow!

On a related note.. I let my snowboard touch the snow, it is ruined now or can I still ride it? Might be a dumb question.

Here's a good way to not make yourself look silly. Put on the jacket and step outside for a few minutes.

ARE YOU COLD!??!
