These are pretty good jackets for anybody who wants…
Fabric: Shell: Black/white=poly, colors=nylon Lining: nylon/outer fleece/inner
Price Paid: $170-320 U.S.
These are pretty good jackets for anybody who wants a good looking everyday coat that can handle a little more. The lining, which is nylon outside and fleece inside, is able to be removed, extending the season in which you can wear this jacket. There is no filling, but it works on the concept of dressing in layers, and it is surprisingly warm.
The outer is basically a windbreaker, that is cleverly vented and fairly water resistant. It has held up 2 seasons for me so far, and it is still in pretty decent shape. There are 5 pockets on the outer half of the jacket and 3 on the inner half. The hood is no more than a windbreaker, so you will need a hat too. Fleece lined hats have worked best for me.

Retro may be in style, but the 3-in-1 Columbia Bugaboo Parka wouldn't know. That's because it never left. Columbia's Interchange System introduced the component system to outdoor enthusiasts and the general public back in the 90's, and it still maximizes versatility with a zip-in fleece jacket liner that stands alone for casual and cool-weather wear. The outer shell uses Columbia's Omni-Tech waterproofing between a nylon face and polyester liner, and stands alone as a wind- and weather-resistant jacket with critical-seam taping to keep you dry in a storm.
