Columbia Franklin Cliff II Parka
Price Paid: i paid $80 dollars from Ross, but i would gladly have paid more.
this product is great. it looks stylish, is well cut, and incredibly warm. the amazing thing is that it retains incredible breathabilty along with warmth.
i work early mornings and during winter it is often below freezing, and this jacket keeps me perfectly warm with nothing but a t-shirt underneath. i've worn it from any temperature from 65 degrees to freezing and never felt too warm. and the fleece lining is always temperate and comfortable to slip into.
it is easy to maintain, and very functional, with a possible seven pockets and button closure hood. its probably the best jacket i've owned in years, marriaging form and function perfectly.
