My girlfriend is looking for a warm snowboarding jacket for next season. Can anybody recommend one that is really warm? She gets cold easily and the one I got her I thought was warm but I guess not.

The jacket should really just be a shell to keep you dry. If you have proper layers underneath you won't be cold.

^^I agree with belleayre. Get some really good base layers. I wear 2, a warm base layer (tight to keep the warmth insulated) and a merino wool sweater over it (or a good fleece or water wicking sweatshirt like UA), then my jacket. You want materials that insulate and keep your warmth in.

 I rock a volcom jacket with T.D.S (Thermal Defense System) with my 2 layers and I'm pretty cozy/toasty. What kind of jacket did you get your gf?

I forget the name but its a Volcom Jacket. She just picked what looked good to her. She wears two sweaters underneath and is still cold towards the end of the day.

Why dont you try some jackets that are fully padded with some fleece lining on the inside? Ive seen loads of fully padded jackets in Korea (not sure if theyre big in the states) but they look like big parkas with waterproof shell

what kind of sweaters? if theyre cotton, its no wonder shes cold.
cotton is a BIG no-no.... it holds water(sweat) in and you end up wet and cold


a good base layer, a fleece jacket and then (maybe) a jacket with minimal/core insulation would be most beneficial.

Highly agree, you can layer 4 cotton sweatshirts and you're still going to get cold. For me, a base layer that hugs my body keeps my heat in. Check out UnderArmour cold weather base layer, I hear some good things about them. I rock a NorthFace base layer and it's my go-to for cold days. You want a base that would keep heat insulated and wick sweat away.

longsleeve coldgear underarmour on the inside (the kind with the turtleneck)
then a longsleeve thermal layer on top of that. If you can keep these 2 layers dry, it should be PLENTY warm

for the jacket itself, burton makes some jackets where ALL pockets are accessible from the outside, so you never have to unzip and let the warm air out

if you get burton pants too, u can get a jacket and pants that zip into each other. this will prevent snow from getting up ur jacket/down your pants. this will also keep the warm air in

in terms of waterproof rating, get something that's at least 8k

As Derby said, layers.  To clarify, layers that are not cotton.  Cotton kills.

No don't check out Underarmour.. its over priced and I regret buying it. I had a spyder baselayer.. so much better and kept me very warm.. I regret returning it and bought the UA coldgear baselayer.
I'm looking towards merino wool, expensive as ***k tho but it isn't synthetic.

The UA stuff for women might fit nice and snug but I wouldn't know, and I'd still stay away from them.

Yeah, UA cold gear keeps you cool more than keep you warm I would say.  I wear a UA cold gear then a thermal over it and it's freaking warm as hell.

What's a base layer?? When you guys are mentioning the under armor are you talking about the tight fitting ones? I had no clue that kept you warm I wear those when I grapple to wick sweat away

Thanks for the input on the UA! Guess ill stick to my northface base on cold days and maybe pick up a UA for 40 degree weather. I usually wear a merino wool sweater over my base for cold days and they are def. worth it. More warmth, less bulk.
