What will you be wearing on the slopes?

After seeing a good few clothing recommendation threads in this forum I was just wondering what sort of gear are you guys & girls going to be wearing this season on the slopes?

I'll get the ball rolling..........

Snowboard Gear:

(You can add the price and location of where you bought your stuff for the benefit of other posters).

Board: I don't own one, I rent one out at the resorts - Usually around €70 for one week.

Jacket: Section MFM (10,000gm/mm) - €160 in Tk Maxx

Pants: Burton Shift Cargo (5,000gm/mm) - €60 online + Airwalk Cargo (5,000gm/mm) - €30 on eBay

Boots: DC Sith - €80 in Slovakia (end of season sale)

Goggles: Spy Optic Blizzards - €40 in Austria (end of season sale)

Gloves: Burton (gore-tex) - €45 online + Section (40gm thinsulate) - €30 Tk Maxx

I don't thinks it is necessary to add hats, socks, underwear etc but if you have anything that you found good and could recommend to other people then please add it.

Trousers - no idea what they are - except that they have a big rip that I patch with duct tape! result of an encounter with some rocks, an ice waterfall, and a tree - in that order

Ski gear:
Skis: Head carvers - This'll be the 4th season on them. can't rememeber the model. In surprisingly good condition seeing how much use they've got.

Boots Technica - this is the 5th season with them. Well worn in

Jacket: Columbia - bought in Dublin but is quite ok

Pants: I think they are trespass but not sure - bought cheaply in Austria.

Goggles: Cheap Uvex yellow tint goggles - only worn when conditions are really bad.
Sunglasses: Bolle with interchangable lenses. The clear lense is great for Toboggoning

Gloves: Some Cheapo but high spec gloves from a coffee shop in Austria. Need a new pair though but can't find anything decent (or anywhere near as good) under 50€+.

Helmet:Thinking about one!

I also have one of those thermal half-poloneck type things from elvery's and a lightweight Böffler fleece. Best buy last year was a face guard that cost 3€ from the same coffee shop as above. Along with the hat it's basically like wearing a balaclava.

LOL Hell no! I don't think I would be brave enough to wear something that loud.

This is the jacket I got (below) although the one I bought is solid black. It’s very functional and extremely warm.

Incidentally, Columbia sportswear are hooking all of Kiltiernan's snowboard instructors up with brand new uniforms from their Titanium range, I've not gotten to try mine on yet, it's off getting SCI and the likes embroidered on it, but I'll let yuz know what they're like when I get mine, they looked pretty snazzy when we first got delivery of 'em, and you can't argue with free gear. Free fleece, hat, gloves and everything thrown in, Dendex is finally paying it's dues
