Winter is so close you can nearly smell it. And this time last year, the UK was nearing a shutdown due to a surprise influx of snow. We’ve been inundated with people asking for the best place to find cheap kit – and the truth is that many sites are selling off last season’s kit for far less than you’d pay for this season’s pretty-much-the-same version.
Hardcloud has an immense snowboard outerwear sale on right now, and here’s our hints to some of their best buys, and what you could use the savings for!
ANALOG ACCORD JACKET – save £60 – the cost of your transfer!
This Analog Accord jacket has been reduced from £140 to just £80 – an immense saving of £60. That’s the cost of your flight to Geneva (minus your excess baggage fees of course!) or your resort transfers! And what’s more, all Analog orders over £50 get a free beanie!
The Analog Accord Jacket is constructed from a 2-layer jet micro, irregular ripstop with a waterproofness rating of 10,000mm and a breathability rating of 5,000gm. You also get fully taped seams, mesh lined pit zips, 40g polyester insulation and a fixed storm hood with cinch adjustment.

Hardcloud has them for half price – £120 down to £60. Here’s the Pat Moore ones, but check out the other riders’ ones on the site.

It fits a small to medium face, has an oversized spherical dual lens for improved field of vision and offers 100% UV protection.
