This ski season was a TON of fun. And I always like to do a recap of what gear I wore and tested this season at the end of the season when I’ve really used an abused the product 🙂 It’s important to get the best women’s snowboard gear dialed!
I’m super thrilled for today’s post as I’ve actually received a lot of questions about my jacket, and amazing women’s snowboard gear, goggles and overall gear set up. (I know that’s SO annoying to read, and I hate when any sort of influencer or blogger writes that, but I’m telling you I have received a lot of questions!)
Today i’m going to break down what I’m currently wearing on the slopes this season. I have a lot of new pieces and a few that I’ve been wearing for the last few years. So let’s dive in, shall we!?
Jacket: 686 GLC Hydra Insulated Jacket
I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS JACKET. I never saw myself as a white jacket person on the hill (and especially as a mom, I mean…. white anything is just asking to get dirty, but so far this jacket has held up. It’s from 686, a brand that’s been around for as long as I’ve been snowboarding (yes over 25 years) and it’s super comfy, has all the features you’re looking for, and I get so many compliments about my jacket. My full review of the jacket can be found here.
I picked up a new helmet this year and I LOVE IT! It’s the Logan WaveCel helmet features advanced protection with premium fit and comfort features in a low-profile, lightweight style.
Why this helmet is so great: It’s got the WaveCel technology which pairs 3D cellular protection with an in-mold construction featuring a lightweight shell with an EPS and WaveCel liner designed in a sleek, low-profile style. WaveCel is a collapsible cellular structure that lines the inside of the helmet and can reduce impact and rotational force by flexing to reduce initial force, crumpling to lower impact velocity, and gliding to help redirect energy away from the head. Additional comfort and fit features include a 360° BOA® Fit System with a quick, micro-adjustable fit with the turn of a dial, and the Fidlock® magnetic helmet strap buckle allows for easy one-hand operation, even with gloves. Polartec® Power Grid® fleece liner and ear pads maintain quick-drying warmth for all-day comfort.
I’m using two goggles this season, but they are both the exact same model. They are the Outdoor Master Ultra XL Snow Goggles. I have the black with silver 10% VTL lense and the Pink with 17% VTL. They both come with a spare lenses and are super comfortable. My Full review on these goggles can be found here.

I started using Smartwool base layer last year and I can honestly say, I’ll never try any other brand. It’s so warm and not bulky at all! My full review on Smatwool’s Intraknit™ Merino 200 base layer can be found here.
I have been wearing Burton snowboard pants for as long as I can remembver, and there is one simple reason why… they have TALL SIZES! I am 5’10” and hate when snowpants looks like floods. Burton sells sizes in Tall, but also some of their regular sizes come long. I read the reviews and found one that ran long. It’s the GORE-TEX Duffery Pant. I don’t think they make that one any more but they do have a lot of modles that are similar.
I have been wearing the Burton Ritual Snowboard boot for 4 years now, and LOVE THEM. Again, I am a size 10.5, so i had to order an 11 and they fit amazing. They mold to your feet and are warm. Burton is one of the only brands that have boots bigger than size 10 for women.
I’ve been riding on the Burton Custom X for the last 3 years and LOVE IT. I must warn you, it’s a stiff and agresive board. I love this board for cursing and powder. It is not a park board – and I haven’t tried the half pipe, but I can tell you as a good cruiser, this is your board!
More about the Custom X from Burton: Pro-caliber is a strong statement for any board, but the men’s Burton Custom X Snowboard has repeatedly delivered for snowboarding’s most demanding riders due to precise design and powerful drive. The confidence is in the tech, which includes the carbon-fueled snap of Squeezebox High core profiling, a competition-grade base, and 45° Carbon Highlights High-Voltage for the ultimate in lightweight responsiveness. The hardest charging board we make, the Custom X is available in two versions: Choose the power of camber or the float and catch-free feel of Flying V.
Well that’s the 411 on my gear this winter. It was such a great season, and I loving my set up and gear! Thanks for reading!
