Key features of snowboarding apparel include a generous cut; tough, breathable fabric; zippered vents; and reinforcement at stress points. The generous cut of snowboarding jackets and snowboard pants allows for freedom of movement and provides warmth and protection.
Snowboarding can be tough on your clothes, so look for snowboard apparel with a tough, waterproof, breathable shell, and triple stitched seams, reinforced material on the sides of jackets, knees and rear of pants.
