    I've seen some Holden in discount retailers (T.J. Maxx, Marshall's) for pretty reasonable prices. Right now I wear an Orage Masters jacket that I've been really happy with. Yes, they're a ski company, but they are obviously inspired by snowboarding steez.

    Since this thread has been resurrected, I want in.

    First off, yeah, not the place I'd ask for style advice for riding. As we all know, the trend now is to be bright and ridiculous, and it works fine for the hill. Better to blend in. Where I ride (eastern BC, Alberta), most younger riders are in bright stuff, not just the super-good riders and the posers.

    Second, I don't wear my pants below my butt, but I do wear fairly baggy. Why? Layering, obviously. It was -30 C last Saturday at Lake Louise, -38 C on the peak in the early morning. And I didn't feel the cold all day.

    My jacket is 686 (and it somehow got ripped this past weekend, sucks) but the construction wasn't very noteworthy, frayed seams all over the place. Luckily I just wear my instructor's uniform now (OR gore-tex jacket/pants) so I don't need to shell out for a replacement

    IMO the holden super trim look is kind of, ummm, last year. Plus I think it looks pretty dumb having trim pants that have to flare out to go over your boots.

    hello all..

    sorry to revive an old thread. having left vancouver for london a decade ago, i only go snowboarding once or twice a year now. so, while i've gotten quite into bespoke clothing and clothing in general, i am totally out of the know in terms of good quality snowboard gear. my snowboarding pants and jacket are about 15 years old. i would like to replace them with something that is good quality (keeps me dry in vancouver/pacific northwests wet conditions), looks good (nothing with tons of logos blasted everywhere, just somethign simple)...

    any suggestions for brands? which are the best brands out there for this type of gear? i remember buying a Burton jacket about 18 years ago, but it lasted less than a season before a huge rip in the seam appeared without any provocation or misuse..Burton only offered to fix it and i remember being a kid without my snowboard jacket for weeks while they fixed it. anyways so i'm still scarred from the Burton experience - other brands welcome! i can purchase in vancouver or washington state

    thanks a lot
