Sure, they cost a bit more but Burton delivers. This is the second Burton coat I've purchased for my God-son. He's a typical boy and not easy on stuff. His last one stood up to his abuse for two years.
The coat is taped and coated for water and wind proofing. The waist/snow band is adjustable and necessary on powder days. The hood fits over the helmet and the sleeve cuffs fit over gloves and mittens. It also has plenty of pockets outside and inside for phones, iPods, candy and water. This is an excellent buy!
