target audience - 77 year old guy, average build, reasonably active, 5 foot 8.
target use - winters in new england. day hikes, snowblowing the driveway, just plain old getting around in bad weather.
other info - plans to layer over a down sweater. does not want or need a mega-expensive shell, but quality is a plus. shell being replaced is a 30 year old TNF gore tex shell.
i already suggested trying on some arcteryx and Rab shells and considering outdoor research, though i don't often see OR jackets in stores.
any other ideas appreciated.
