You say you live up by the mountains.....well l did in Vegas, so are you're mountains cold & snowy or hot & rocky???
Do you have an unlimited budget, what is your style of riding, are you strictly blacktop or an avid offroader..........You need to give us more info if you want a proper answer other than people just telling you what they wear for their environment!
I get some of my budget gear from this website, but be aware that you need to order at least one size larger than you usually wear if it's not a big name/brand product within their catalogue.
