     I'm pretty sure they are called the Bellevue in both lines.

    And I got my Vernon today, I dont know why people are saying its huge, it fits just like a regular jacket, just tad bit longer....

    gerry said: just for clarification, this year 6.0 had the vernon, nike snowboarding had the bellevue.

     
    that's funny because on most sites, the bellevue (plaid and vest) is listed under nike 6.0; on the other hand, the vernon (solid and vest) is listed as nike snowboarding.    

    although according to nikesnowboarding.com, the solid and vest colorways are called bellevue...

    Not sure if a model name would be the Vernon, but everything else was basically what I was told.

     So, do the different model bellvues have different(better/worse) materials or are they just different colors?

    Nike 6.0 is geared towards the younger snowboarder, cheaper materials, bright/louder prints.

    Nike SB is geared towards the older rider. More tech gear, subdued prints, etc.

    Sold in different stores too. Only select retailers were allowed to carry Nike SB.

    There'll be different models, so I'm assuming there will be a variety of colors, materials, cuts, etc throughout the entire Bellevue line.

    ahh makes sense price point wise too. i personally like the nike sb style. very classy look but still pulls off rad

    got my vernon. 5'6 130lb size small for me.

    it is longer than I am used to but it's definitely a kickass jacket. quality is top notch too, as expected from nike (im a nike whore when it comes to basketball gear).

    it's funny, the jacket alone fits nice. but i feel like it is a little puffy when i throw on the vest.

    milkycereal said:  well shit, i never thought in a million years id say it but i am now a believer in nike boots. i HATE nike shoes, they are really narrow and hurt my feet so i havent worn them in years. well at the urging of a good friend, we went into the nike outlet in silverthorn and tried some on. the kaiju made my foot cramp in about 7 seconds, i then of course said "i told you, you fuckin idiot", then reluctently tried on the ZF-1 and as my foot slid in, i think i saw a couple unicorns dancing on a rainbow. holy shit are they comfy, scooped em up, and rode them the next day, first time in years i actually wore socks while riding and didnt get footpain at all from about 8:45-4:00 solid riding, never had that happen, EVER. amazing boots, wish i listened earlier.

     Whoa whoa whoa, you don't wear socks when you ride?
