Billabong Pier Jacket ($240)
The Austrian Wolfman Wolle Nyvelt, who designed this jacket, is one of the most talented riders in snowboarding. Not only can he tear it up on a normal snowboard, he's leading the snow-surf scene (his Absinthe Dopamine part, anyone?). Oh, and he fuckin' rips at surfing and skating, too. That being said, this jacket is designed with sideways sliding at heart. The longer length, light insulation, 15k/15gm waterproofing and breathability, hand-gaiters, and a stash of other features fit and function well so you can simply focus on riding. With a cool hit of southwest and chambray style, it's a signature look amongst that sea of tropical colors that is the liftline.-B.G.
