Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Great lightweight cheap rain jacket. Fantastic rain jacket. So much so that after losing my first one a month ago, I have just forked out for a replacement. I have also $400 eVent jacket sitting in my cupboard and use it for day to day wear.   I picked the Precip as I really wanted a jacket made from breathable material and that's properly vented. I have walked in the rain just in a t-shirt all too often because of overheating. This jacket solved that problem and at a reasonable price. Full review

The North Face Men's McMurdo Parka

rated 5 of 5 stars Went to Iceland in February 2015. This parka was absolutely fantastic, could not feel cold at all with just a tee shirt on underneath. Temperature in Rekyav was -8° and snowing, no chill felt. Went out of town to Gullfoss waterfalls, temperature was -15° and still warm in this jacket. We went on snowmobile for about an hour and temperature was measured at -22°. This jacket coupled with North Face Montana Gloves was faultless. I actually sweated. Well done, North Face. Would recommend this parka… Full review

MontBell Men's Alpine Light Down Parka

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Warm and light, this is a great down jacket for shoulder season use — very good bargain too! This is my go-to down jacket for shoulder season use; it's usually too warm for summer use and there are plenty of lighter options. With over 4 ounces of 800 down, this jacket is warm! Not sure where the original review came from, but mine in size Large is 12.8 oz, pretty svelte for such a warm jacket. The hood is nicely cut and adjustable.  Two nice zippered pockets that are lined w/ fleece. I really… Full review

REI Men's Triad Parka

rated 5 of 5 stars I recently purchased this high quality 3/4 length coat at the REI store in Paramus. It has an amazing fit and is extremely warm in an outside temperature of 18 degrees. I highly recommend this excellent garment. If you can find one, buy it. Full review

Black Diamond Alpine Start Hoody

rated 4 of 5 stars A nice balance of breathability, wind resistance and precip resistance — more durable than your average windshirt (but heavier too). This isn't your average ultralightweight windshirt, for one it comes in at 8.2 oz in XL, about double what my other (Patagonia Houdini) windshirt is. But there are some advantages.   The Schoeller material has a nice stretch to it and is definitely going to be more durable than any of the real lightweight windshirts. It strikes a nice balance of wind resistance,… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Incandescent Hoody

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Nice, warm, light down parka. Fit/finish top notch. This is a really nice, lightweight down jacket w/ ~ 7 oz of 800 down.  I find it very warm for the weight, my Large comes in at 17.1 oz. Compresses small and packs into its own stuff sack (utilizing one of the pockets). It has a good DWR finish, will shed snow and light precip nicely. I like the longer cut vs other lightweight parkas that are waist length. Has a dual direction zipper and a nice drawstring bottom. It has a handy "Napoleon" upper… Full review
