Ski/Board clothing

hmm

Not content to cost us a fortune by going to Uni Katie has decided to make things worse by taking up snow boarding ...

She's got a chance to go snow boarding in the French Alps but will obviously need some proper clothing which throws up a minor problem - Jackie and I wouldn't recognise decent ski/board gear if it stood up and bit us !   We've had an eyeball through the usual high streets suspects (Blacks, Millets, Trespass, Oswald Bailey etc) and have seen lots of stuff that purports to be suitable but my natural cynicism is making me a bit twitchy.

The big question is - which (VALUE FOR MONEY !) brands are OK and which brands (Across the entire price spectrum) should be avoided like the plague ?

Cheers !

Fecked if I know.............Helpful ain't I ?

Been there ,done that duh  orcspash  orcspash  some gear you buy for the label and pose value and some to do the job and the problem is sorting them out
It's striking the balance between what she wouldn't be seen dead in and what will do the job. I don't envy you

lol

Don't for one moment think that I'm putting myself in the middle - we've spent most of the last 19 years failing to buy clothes that she thinks are acceptable !     

What I'm trying to do is identify those labels that are OK and those that aren't - the final decision will be hers but it will be based upon what we can afford ...

Hire of all the hardware is included in the price except she's got to have her own helmet and goggles - it's purely the clothing that's creating the problem (Or to be more precise a certain madam wanting a suitcase full of labels regardless of whether they'll actually do the job !)
