New Hartford- Connecticut, Wasatch Mountains- Utah, Uinta mountains, Rocky mountain west!
I think a size Large will fit you well, and should have a bit of room to layer underneath. Their sizes run pretty true, so if you normally go with a large i'd try that out.
The Voile Interface is the most effective way to attach yourself to a Splitboard. This design from the originators of splitboarding is simple yet indestructible! When ideas become to complicated thats when things start to go wrong and break down. I've experienced it first hand and that is why i stick with the trusty Voile design.
"If it aint broke, why fix it?"
The amount of stuff that can fit inside a big camping backpack these days is overwhelming. This kit will keep your things organized and in place while your searching for that random piece of gear in the bottom corner of your pack.
I enjoy the ability to keep my sleeping bag in the compression sack, all clothes in a stuff sack, and other electronics and smaller items in the mesh sack. Great way to stay on top of your gear!
The L/XL should work well for you, I enjoy wearing mine over the top of another fabric beanie that i normally wear. Seems to be more comfortable that way and stays put.
There are also really nice vents on the outside of the thighs, in addition to the inner vents shown in the photos. Quite bigger then the inner vents. This creates amazing cross flow to dump unwanted heat on the hike up. My favorite feature in a snow pant.
Unexpected downpours don't stand a chance. This jacket keeps you dry when you need it most...
The Halogen jacket won Outside magazines "Gear of the Year" award. Combining PrimaLoft One, Pertex Quantum and Schoeller soft shell in what Outside calls, "one of the most versatile winter jackets we’ve ever tested."
If you spend a lot of time in the backcountry enjoying snow sports of any kind, you will encounter unpleasant temperatures. If you go prepared your chances of staying warm and comfortable increase dramatically making your experience way more enjoyable. I always bring a packable down jacket with me anytime i venture off the beaten path.
The Incandescent is ridiculously warm for how light it is, and packs into the size of a small camp pillow. This jacket comes along with me anytime i plan on spending a night out in the cold.
When you're chasing powder living out of a camper, the best way to keep warm is to wrap yourself in quality down feathers. This puffy is WARM
A tropical storm came though and destroyed our camp, but the Axiom jacket kept me plenty warm and dry throughout many days of rain in the jungles of Bolivia.
This is the one shell i brought to south america, for rain protection while fly fishing in the low lands, and backpacking and snowboarding in the Cordillera Real. It can handle just about any kind of weather conditions and keep you comfortable. I am a big fan of the left pocket/stuff sack. Very waterproof, breathable and durable.
This is the Shovel i carry in my pack. Its great to have a saw that stows away in the shovel handle, so everything is is right there when conditions are sketch and you need to dig a pit. Versatile and efficient. Made in the USA, Voile shovels are bomber!
The originators of snowboarding used Sorel boots!
The Ferrosi hoody has got to be one my favorite layering pieces of all time. It has kept me warm, dry and comfortable in so many different environments and conditions. While out splitboarding i usually find myself wearing this jacket all day for climbs, with a lightweight shell strapped to my pack for descents and colder times. I would always overheat like crazy when hiking in a shell, yet get too cold once i hit the ridge when hiking in a normal base layer setup. This thing keeps me hiking all day comfortably so i don't have to stop as much to add/remove layers all the time.
Watch as Zack Giffin destroys monster pillow stacks in is Vanguard pants!
From the Cascades to Utah to everything in between, the Vanguard Jacket and Pants keep you dry and comfortable while your out in the mountains all day long.

The Mt. Baker mitts will keep your hands warm, dry and comfortable no mater what conditions the mountain throws at you. The ability to choose your layering makes these so versatile. The Shell is constructed of bomber goretex, is incredibly light, and rolls up into the size of a twinkie to jam in your pack while you hike the hills. When the time comes to ride down, I typically use a midweight liner with the shell, with a warmer option stowed in my pack.
Being a snowboarder, my hands are in the snow a lot, so its nice to have a durable waterproof mitt, with the option to use it in a wide range of conditions. From -20 blower pow days to spring time in the big mountains, this is one mitt that can do it all.

It's good to have a pow board come up to somewhere in between your chin and nose when standing on the ground. You'll appreciate the extra cm's on those deep days... For example I'm about 6'2 and ride a 165-168cm in the pow and a 155-159cm for park and other all mtn type riding.
Fly fishing can be one of the best ways to beat the heat. The equinox shorts are perfect for those long hot days exploring new water. When your in and out of the river and hiking far, you need fabric that dries well. These dry out in minutes keeping you comfortable in search of that new secret hole!
