Snowboarding Gear. Simply Buy The Best You Can Afford

Snowboarding gear. When your sport takes you outside the one thought in your mind when it comes to equipment must be the word QUALITY.

Some people chose to play indoors and their equipment does not have the effects the sun and rain to contend with. But once you move to an outdoors sport the weather takes over.

First the sun. It has the ability to warm up the material in the clothing and then with sudden temperature drops the effect can be devastating to the clothing.

Rain gear must work or you are going to be wet. Misery will follow as the water penetrates not only the so called leak proof clothing. Cheap clothing will keep you unhappy for the whole trip.

Staying warm and dry is a challenge. For the snowboarder, you must remember that while you are on the slopes you will generate plenty of heat so you want the clothes to be lightweight enough to keep you warm without retaining sweat. The clothing should breathe.

Once you hit the bottom and get aboard the chairlift you will need wind protection. You might suffer a bad chill if the clothing cannot retain the heat. Nothing can make you miserable quicker than shivering while sitting on the lift as the wind whistles through your cheap jacket or pants and the temperature sits at -30C or 30 degrees below zero.

The same rule also takes in your cap, gloves, pants and underclothing. Patagonia Clothing is made of special fibers that help to wick away moisture and also keep you warm. Their clothing line concentrates on the under layers as well. Layering clothing is very important when buying and using snowboarding gear. The idea being you put on what layer you need to be warm while snowboarding and put on a couple of layers when you stop to eat or rest.

Finally we come to the snowboard. As you may know already, there are thousands of boards from which to choose. Your friends will know all about them. Failing that go to a snowboard shop for advice on the type that will suit you. You should avoid buying a board at any other shop except one that sells boards, skis, top quality outdoor equipment exclusively. They are apt to know more about boards than one that also sells tires.

As a general rule your snowboard should be as long as the distance from your chin to the floor. Do not make the decision by yourself.
