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..........
(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.
by any chance is that section one yellow with an embroidered-style "s" on the front?I think I saw it in tk maxx... if so, you is a gangsta!!!!

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
