I'm a moderately new rider (15), riding artificial at least twice a month, and I just got invited to go boarding in France (only the second time I've been to a resort to board). At the moment I have Burton pants and an old North Face jacket both from my cousin. I know they won't hold out because they're beat to hell. So, I have the option of brand new Burton gear, or new Bataleon gear, but which should I go for, and which will hold up best, because I'm gonna be on my butt a lot and want to have the stuff for a while. Thanks!
