I have no idea about boards but i know ORAGE snowboarding/ski wear are pretty good..

They're around the same price as burton, and some of their stuff look pretty stylish imo.

depends on which kind of 5/10/20k mm you are comparing to. Gore-tex is well known for their water-proof technology. I just got this burton x gore tex pants and I noticed the texture is different. Is a lot more expensive then my regular burton snowboard pants. My regular burton did the job for me as well and it was like 10/20k mm i forgot. I have no proof of it better or not but for sure gore-tex won't fail =)

Any 3 layer is better than a laminated nylon waterproofing.

3 layer waterproofing is fused in with the fabric making it far more breathable and far more water proof.

Laminated waterproofing is what you see on 2/5/8/9/10/15 k waterproofing outerware.

What they do is take a semi-plastic waterproofing material and then bond it with adhesive onto the nylon. Then after it's sewn they then spray a [DWR] durable water repellency [probably from 3m] that allows the water to bead off like a freshly waxed car. The laminate looks white under the nylon and it's good, but NOT as effective

Thing is, that DWR will wear after getting dirty, or constant usage, thus relying on the membrane material to contain the moisture from the outside.

3 layer waterproofing is literally FUSED to the fabric making it far more effective than the laminated stuff out there.

Dupont, Gore, and a few others make 3 layer waterproofing material, where the companies out there by the membrane and apply it to their products.

The big big difference between laminated and fused 3 layer, is the 3 layer usually don't have a liner built into the outerware, allowing it to be reliant on the membrane waterproofing fabric and allowing it to be a lot lighter. But they make a lot of noise when you move

hope any of this helps.

what's the best way to prevent goggles from fogging up? I was at grouse today and it was snowing pretty hard but I notice there some people don't get fogged up even in those condition, is there a technique or is it the brand of the goggle. I'm curious because I'm using a pair of Oakley A-frames. I know it gets fogged up when waters gets inside but shit is hella annoying, is not because I was touching my goggles is because of the snow dropping on top and starts melting and stuff.

P.S: what lens you guys use? and why? What are the best lens color for both night and sunny days.

I use Oakley A frames with pink irridium, which i find are pretty good for both night and sunny days. But for better vision at night, should good with high intensity yellow. My A Frames don't really fog up at all even if it is snowing. Perhaps you put them on your head and the heat from your heat fogs up the lens? I never put my goggles on my head for this reason.

I use Spy's.

It's all about fitment. You can get the $200 goggles but if they don't fit your face like a glove, moisture will seep in. You can get $100 goggles but if they fit perfect, then you won't experience lens fogging.

As everyone's face has a different shape, Narrow, Wide, some people's cheekbones are different, some people's noses are different, you really just have to shop around lots.

gearattack.com

it scans, steapandcheap, whiskey, tramdock and chainlove for gear.

Use it all the time, the stuff is cheap, can't support local shops when the gear is half off online.

What's the proper way to layer? That's a question that I've always had for all the years that I've been riding.

My current strategy for my bottom half:
1) base long-john style thermal
2) semi-thin sweat pants
3) outer snowboard pants

Top half:
1) thermal long sleeve shirt that is really tight fitting
2) t shirt
3) sweater
4) outer snowboarding jacket

I need to know what is better for the layers in between my base layer and my outer layer. My current setup has served me in an OK way, but when it gets wet (i.e. rainy day at Cypress), I do get a bit of wetness that gets through and takes a while to dry.

If you have too many layers, your sweat doesn't have a chance to escape.

Try a middleweight pants and top over your base layers. 2 layers rather than 3 layers. If it's really cold, base layer + heavyweight layer.

Cotton just holds the moisture, so having a nice breathable jacket doesn't work so well.

Here's my set up dude.
-Thermal layer
-breathable layer
-snowboard jacket.

- long johns
- adidas soccer pants
- snowboard pants
but if it's -8 or lower.. i'll add a fleece layer over my shirt. My legs are usually ok because they're always moving.

But for your wetness problem, just go to Canadian Tire camping section and get the spray-on silicone and just spray your jacket and pants, maybe even your gloves if they get wet. It's been a life saver when the snow gets wet. That is... if you don't wanna get gore-tex!

Might be a stupid question, but do they make fake snowboarding stuff?

Are there any stores locally that still have sizes for snowboarding boots left?
sportchek seems to only have size 7 or 10.5+.
