That's what I'm wondering. Is it actually "a lot" better? Because honestly whenever I snap up my gaiter I've never gotten snow up my jacket/down my pants. Only time I could see it making a noticeable difference is if you're riding in waist deep pow or you take a huge fall that unsnaps your gaiter.

Well assuming you mean Green jacket/green pants, plaid jacket/plaid pants like a match set? Fuck no, I think that looks retarded. I wouldn't do that with my clothes why would I do that with my gear? That being said I don't try to mismatch either, I dress on the hill similar to what I would dress on the street. Right now I have black pants and beige pants, grey jacket, brown jacket, white hoodie and black hoodie and I wear some combo of those. I'm not into bright colors either, tried green pants once and I hated how I stuck out... I just got them so my wife could follow me lol.

I typically don't match brands because IMO there are some brands that are better at jackets and some that are better at pants. Also you have way more options if you're mixing brands. The zip together thing is overrated. If you're that worried about snow get a one piece or bib

OHHH hell no, I mean the brand of jacket and pants, not the colors.

Sorry I guess it can be read that way.
