Whats the breathability & waterproof rating over 24 hrs.
that's where it counts!

don't touch anything under 10,000 ratings esp if a beginner & will be sitting on your backside or crashing lots.
preferably 15000 + specs.
& NEVER wash your ski / board kit / waterproofed items in a wahing machine thats had any conditioner in it for the last 6 washes!
clear out the build up of nasty residual scum from your machine before re-proofing kit!

Top info. MY GF and I are planning our first skiing holiday. We are total noobs :oops: when it comes to clothing and equipment.
What things should we look for? What are the reputable brands? We may go to America soon to stock up on cheap clothing and boots there. Should I buy a larger size trouser to fit clothing underneath?

Well, TKmaxx is well worth a trip ESP if you can find some Orage, which we've been kitting our 5yr old out in since she was 2, it's good technical stuff & bombproof (bronze silver gold, platinum ratings in terms of waterproofing & breathability).
They've also been doing some good Spyder stuff of late.
The Orage is often good enough to wear out at night too (good cuts of cloth)
Having been boarding for nrly 20 yrs i've seen alot of kit, & am only on my 3rd pr of trousers & second set of mitts! ..buy well & it lasts.
Look at sites clearance or sale items such as boardriders (google em) based down on the south coast just out of brighton, good advice & prices to be found, as well as technical, excellent website & often deals tobe had if you scour the site.
Snow & rock & big city centre stores rarely have serious stuff at sensible prices.
Orage can be found cheaply on ebay (but it's hit & miss as it's not overly known over here, however I'd rank Orage kit as a step down from Arcyteryx which would make your bank manager faint.
For instance & got a very tech 20,000 rating pair of ski pants (for boarding) for £50.00 it was amongst the junk so prepare to spend a few hours as theres alot of seemingly ok stuff on Tk's racks.
Tk do very good discount glovces recommend both LEVEL & Marmot brands.

Feel free to ask specific q's & i'll try to answer (along with some other wintrer types I imagine, ..where are you planning / booked for as theres lots of different snow & cold/ damp around the world.
eg I'm happy in shorts in -25 in canada, couldnt do that in europe as it's too damp! (Canada snow & air is VERY dry, so feels warmer than a damp winter at home. ..on a warm day eg +3 degrees you sweat!

ok parity of the pound has had a devastating effect, we go to Banff in canada as we can do a fortnight / 3+ weeks there for the cost of just over a week in places like chamonix,

Unless you are shopping (& know where to go ina big foriegn city then I would just get your kit over here if poss) ,most resorts are away from big city's (ie expensive all year round) unless there is a local sale, so it could be a misconception, due to additional transportation costs to the resort based on geographical location.
In some areas it's common to wait 6 weeks for an ordered item to arrive due to weather & rail freight.
..This for instance happened to me when a new set of bindings were not up to the job, broke & spares were weeks & states away from me, thank god for gaffer tape & pizza boxes to cobble things together. ..could have been very expensive otherwise.

if you buy a good pair of ski-pants they'll pretty much suffice (unless you are too damn skiny) , toped up if required by a pair of PR0PER thermals with anti-bact protection for prolonged wear.

£12-16.00 on a pair of GOOD ski / board socks by Falke / thorlos again withantibac properties will last a week & be better for your feet than cheapo tube socks which neither breath or keep yur feet warm!

once you try on a few pairs of kit you'll get an idea as good kit roasts you from the outset!

Ask away. & if you want to know about cheap trips to canada...

didnt know TK had LEVEL stuff.. I've been trying to find some decent boarding mitts but failing.. keep having to get new pairs pretty much every year as they get soaked/trashed.
(i dont put my hand in puddles...........................................honest :p)

Haven't heard of marmot but will look into that, thanks. Any recommended places to look for mitts? or is it generally ebay/TKmaxx and board riders your talking about?

Also, socks, any recommendations on brand? I've got a few kind of inexpensive boarding ones from TK maxx (solomon etc). out of the 3 or 4 i think 1 was good others got a bit wet from sweat.... yum yum..

btw repped. :)

P.S. board riders... is that the one opposite that BP garage?

I used to visit some of our tech guy's in / near worthing which is where boardriders are, but it's been a while but sounds about right.
Level have been around for years, Marmot is a good brand from California (i think) ,..both are quite heavily reduceed in both mens & womens sections of TK maxx.
Gloves mitts are a bit of a personal preference / feel type thing, that can affect your riding so don't buy in haste, wander around in them (like new shoes) even if you feel a bit daft.
I only replaced them last month as i'd lost one of my original fishpaw mitts,.. gutted, near to tears, still in mourning..
Damn!
do look around the boardriders site as it used to be a bit of a nightmare to navigate, however we often used to get heavily reduced Bonfire Jackets which are good & tough branded items for around £60...
always worht a look, got the nippers snowboard there last year too for £50.
Boardwise offer lots of good advice & deals, Doug Foden who owns it still has been into boarding since pre-history, one of the few places we could get quality gear from before big boys likesnow & c... muscled in!

Mr Gus: Thanks for all that info, it's a lot to digest. I was thinking of visiting family in Texas, whihc we do regularly. Although not renound for it's snow it's incredibly cheap and littered with sprawling 1-2 acre "outlet" malls, selling everything you can find on the high street malls at 15-30% of UK prices. I will trawl TK Maxx also.

Just to clarify, If Im a 36" in a pair of jeans, do I need to buy a 38" Ski trouser to go over the top?

No, ski trousers are to be worn only, with the addition of thermals if you are susceptible to cold.
denim is not warm in cold climes so keep it to a minimum when packing, we loll about in board trousers if it's cold.
