How much outerwear do you bring when you travel?

How much outerwear you bring when you travel for snowboarding? I normally bring two jackets and two pairs of pants, but am wondering if that's too much. I'll probably ride 4-5 days.

Only thinking of it because I'm not going to stuff my board bag with my outerwear like I normally do because of concerns of being charged $150 each way for putting extra stuff in my board bag.

Thanks...

Depends where you're going and conditions. I'm touring NV, UT, ID, and WY right now and brought one jacket and pant combo but wish I had a puffy at least. When I go to the NW I try to bring 2 of everything because it's so wet out.

I usually pack one shell jacket and two pair of pants. My jackets never seem to get too wet. Gloves are the biggest concern for me though. Unless your hotel has a glove dryer you might want to bring at least two pair.

Thanks for your insight, fellas. I'm bringing a pair of gloves with liners, and a pair of mittens with liners. Normally I can get away with wearing just the liners unless it's really cold.

Staying with a friend at his apartment, so I should have the ability to dry everything fully.

I'm going to WY.

I'm packing one helmet, two goggles, three midlayers, three sets of base layers, five pairs of socks and one gaiter. Just trying to nail down the jacket/pants thing.

I usually board for extended amounts of time on trips, 10-15 days... I typically bring 2 boots, 2 gloves/liners, 5 sock pairs, 5 beanies, 5 coats, 5 jackets, 5 base, 15 t and long sleeve shirts since I use 2 a day of shirts..... most everything is the same stuff so you cant tell i change, when I find something I like I stick with it but I hate to wear wet/smelly clothes. I sweat alot so I like a couple of air out days. I also drive to my longer trips so I have unlimited amount of space to take stuff. I take two board/binding setups for each family member too.

I would take 2 of base layer, pants and jacket for a 2 day trip... Just in case I tore something on the first day. 1 of everything else since its so much cheaper than the outer wear.

Thanks again. I'll "pre-pack" tomorrow and see if I can fit everything. My other option is to wear my second jacket on the plane. Kinda bulky, but it's an option...
