Superdry isn't known (at least to me) as making quality functional outerwear. The specs for that jacket don't include details like weather and wind proofing that you'll find on dedicated snow gear. Look at the specs for something like Burton's AK Cyclic jacket. I wear this one and absolutely love it. Gore Tex is where it's at for staying dry, and though there are plenty of non Gore Tex jackets that will repel water, I wouldn't go back after having a full Gore Tex setup these days.

- Great points mg33. I was looking for the down power. I have 600 and 700 jackets and when its -30 in Chicago I'm still cold.kona

- oh that's nice! I have a Jack Wolfskin that's great but not on the super cold days.kona
yeah, I don't know if superdry's stuff will work in the mountain conditions. If you are only going for "looks" then this might do the trick, but if you are going to spend that much on a jacket you might as well spend it on one that actually works. Meaning is waterproof, has snow skirt, adjustable wrists (so you can strap them over gloves), mesh ventilation areas for spring riding, and perhaps modular parts for different conditions.
That being said,
I've been looking at holden for a few jackets, they are more sober style than analog, burton, thirtytwo, volcom, etc. They have great stuff!
- I mean... technically a jacket is a jacket, but riding made, had some mnt. specific features that could come handyMiguex
- I've rode wearing, hoodies and regular wind breakers before.. you don't really NEED super tech shitMiguex
