fleece vs. jacket?
 
i know that jackets are thicker and all, but i was wondering if a fleece was any good. are they water resistant? i just thought it'd be better to get because it doesn't get too cold around here. any tips or suggestions would be great

also, anyone in the sacramento area know when that cal expo snowboard show/sale is?

if is blistering cold i will have a fleece as a middle layer under my jacket, but usually its warm enough and i get hot enough riding i just have my outer,even half unzipped some of the time, however its a fairly thick jacket. But fleeces are very warm for their small size. You can always bring it and not use it, but if its cold, that one fleece layer can make your day go from cold and miserable to comfortable and warm.
