Gear Question

I'm not sure whether to get the nitro fun...

I'm not sure whether to get the nitro fun time jacket, or the Burton poacher. I want one that will keep me warm. I'm about 5'7" which would fit better a small or a medium? Could anyone help me out?

Hey Josh, both jackets are really similar. They both have a 10k waterproof rating which is a great waterproof rating in my opinion. They both have light insulation. The Poacher has a little more insulation (Poacher 60 grams in the body, Funtime 40 grams in the body). They will both keep you warm, though. My snowboard jacket has 40 grams of insulation and I'm fine down to about 10 degrees F.

I think the deciding factor will be which jacket looks better to you. I would go with the Funtime because it's got rad style and I like the big front pocket and color options.

At 5'7, you will want a small size for any snowboard jacket. Hope that helps you decide.
