Top 44 Snowboard Jackets (and Pants) of 2013/2014

Protest’s outerwear is always recognisable for its bold prints and lighter-weight fabrics. After all, the company comes from Holland where there isn’t a single mountain for miles, so there’s not much call for freeride kit. The Luxious jacket (left) is definitely on the warmer side with a quilted lining and tailored fit for women. You can’t go wrong with the Hopkins pants at an absolute steal of £80. The Japan B (right) is their most high performance jacket with a high waterproof rating and appealing plaid exterior which work well with the grungy Music pants pictured.

About protest snowboarding

Protest comes from the last country you’d ever expect to produce a thriving snowboard brand – Holland. Yep, that’s right, in 1993, a group of shred enthusiasts from the flattest nation on earth decided they wanted to start making their own kit. It’s an impressive testament to their dedication (and the quality of their clothes) that they’re still going strong today. Protest definitely has its own, recognisable style – all bold prints and lighter-weight fabrics, designed to suit the jib kids and park rats who hang out in Holland’s snow-domes. But I guess when you’re homeland doesn’t have a single mountain, there’s not much call for freeride kit is there?
