After getting pelted by heavy wet snow last season and getting sick because my jacket was not Gore-Tex I decided to up my gear. I did a lot of research in regards to Gore-Tex jackets and this jacket is by far the least expensive on the market. It is very hard to find a snowboarding Gore-Tex jacket that is less than $300. I have put it to the test on the Appalacians, Rockies and at Tahoe and it far surpassed my expectations. Simplicity at its best. Throw on a midweight or expedition-weight first layer and you are set. It was so nice that I bought it twice. I have it in Red Rock and picked up the True Black. Also it is a snowboarder-specific jacket designed by one of the elite snowboard companies and it has a lifetime warranty. Just get it and never worry about a wet day again.
