I think it's funny when people get pissed over shit like this. I buy whats cheap, and skier specific outerwear is far from that.
I don't buy outerwear very often, but If I see something that's so super dope I just have to have it and it's on sale a bit then I'll buy it. I find that the Burton, Special Blend and other snowboarding stuff is usually the most expensive in the store so I don't buy it, plus I would rather get something from Orage or Scott or a company that supports skiing. I really don't like to spend much over $100 on outerwear though, so I wear pretty shabby stuff, or stuff I can get used.
Grenade gear=180 for pants and a jacket, Nuff said
