The last 2 were super cheap lucky scores at yard sales and thrift stores. I also had good luck with Burton snow pants. If a jacket lasts me more than a season, it's good. I have one with about 70 days on it and no seams have tore yet.
Thanks for the feedback! The Cabela's jacket I have now is tough as nails but it's pretty heavy, no vents or waistband to keep out snow either. All I can wear under it is my base layer unless temp is under 15-20F. Honestly it's probably too hot. It's an awesome jacket, just not so much for riding. Same thing goes for my pants, waterproof and warm but heavy. I was looking at the Poacher lineup to maybe replace both of them.

If you can find burton AK on sale for similar price consider that. If you're often too warm a shell is much more flexible with layers. Or even used, my current AK jacket i got secondhand.

Well I got a good 21 days in this season as my job took me within driving distance for weekend trips, if i get anything near that next season i'll be happy!


Gear wise, bought a Bataleon Goliath, Cartels, impact shorts and some Volcom Pants this season.
Already eyeing up a new Jacket though. My helmet has quite a big ding in it so probably need a new one.
Keep looking at GoPros too..and yes i know everyone has one but so what.

You definitely need a new one. If it's got a big ding, it's likely worthless. And the thing is, there's no way you can tell. If you are wearing a helmet for protection, they you need another.

Good. Nobody actually WANTS to have use a helmet for the purpose for which it's designed.
