Need help buying Snowboarding Apparel for beginner

hey guys and galls,
I am heading to japan in a few weeks for snowboarding, and have decided to buy all my own gear before I go over. Only looking at apparel ATM considering I’m still sort of new to the sport, I didn’t want to go buy a brand new snowboard only the second time I’ve been snowboarding as I’ve been told after a few weeks I will probably outgrow the skill level for a beginners board. I am currently looking at a few jackets and pants on sale from Melbourne Snowboard centre. Just over personal preference I am leaning towards buying the Quiksilver found bib in the Mojave dessert colour for my pants. For jackets I’m tossing up between the Quiksilver Ambition jacket 2017 in Cadmium yellow and the Dakine Wyeast Jacket 2016 in the midnight colour. Has anyone used any of these products and have any feedback on them or possibly have any other recommendations ?
Thanks in advance, Cheers Luke
