This then takes me back to square one, so i'll describe my situation so I can be better helped.
Feel free to ignore the bullet points below if your lazy/don't wanna hear my life story ><<br />
1. Never skiid/snowboarded in my life, closest i've come is ice skating ><<br /> 2. I do a lot of cycling, in all weathers and thus require a waterproof/wind proof layer
3. I am also not a fan of multiple thick layers, so the lighter and warmer the layer the better
4. I am planning to start skiing/snowboarding anually from this year, so have decided to invest in the more versatile items required such as insulating mid layers etc
After that incident with the spyder jacket, i've decided rather than go for an expensive item off ebay, i'll go for a budget item from a reputable source.
So far i've found these....any thoughts/additional advice?
