Lowe Alpine Triple Point Ceramic Jacket

Super quality, smart looking. I have owned this jacket for now...21 years!!!! It looks exactly like the day I got it for my birthday (I don’t). I’ve only used it for hiking and city walking so not heavily used, but still, the jacket is completely as new and I still love wearing it on a cold, windy, rainy day. It never lets my down. Damned thing that they don’t produce it any longer. Full review

Rab Batura Jacket

Looking for a durable, seriously warm, water resistant down jacket and weight isn't a deal-breaker? Rab’s Batura II may just fit the bill.

Carhartt Duck Traditional Arctic Quilt-Lined Coat

Perfect for outdoor work or chores. Rugged quality construction, long life expected. Zippers are brass and well made. A perfect outer shell for labor or chores. Tough enough to camp or work in rugged conditions. Full review

Rab Men's Xenon X Jacket

This is the best warmth-for-weight ratio synthetic jacket I have found. Totally windproof, and RAB has made this jacket with VERY few seams so the wind can't even find a way in through the Pertex Quantum. It has Primaloft Gold Active 60 grams, with double in the chest area to create hand warmer pockets. I can truly say, if you like the Pat Nano, YOU WILL LOVE THIS. This jacket seals up every cuff, collar, and seam up against your skin, and combined with the tailoring of it having few seams to begin… Full review

Pacific Trail Men's Pac Tech Terrain Jacket

The best rain jacket I've ever owned. Better than anything I can find nowadays. Like many other reviewers I've found that this is the best rain jacket I've ever owned. I bought it many years ago for around $70 which seemed expensive at the time... I'd pay double now without thinking twice if they made them again. Mine is no longer waterproof and the zipper broke.  :-(   Columbia Sportswear bought Pacific Trail and I've emailed them but don't hold out much hope. I just can't bring myself to buy… Full review

U.S. Military ECWCS Gen II Brown Bear Jacket

I bought one of these a couple of years ago, not pretty but I did not buy it for that. I use it on the range by itself or under a shell. Brilliant. I am very much a layer person and this fits right in. Just recently got a Gen II ECWCS shell parka for $60, who could complain at a price like that for Goretex etc, as compared to other shell products at a couple of hundred more. It is winter here, sitting in my office and what am I wearing but this bear jacket. Great product, not pretty, but who cares. Full review

Mountain Equipment Men's K7 Jacket

This is a serious winter parka that’s very well-made. With about 3/4 lb. of extremely high quality/high fill power goose down, it’ll keep you warm. After suffering a couple of weeks last winter with many minus 15° to 20°F days, I researched, bought, and evaluated most of the leading down jackets and parkas available. Budget limit was around $500. With few American exceptions, eg: Western Mountaineering and Feathered Friends, I quickly found that most of the best stuff comes from England. Mountain… Full review

Rab Men's Nexus Pull-On

The Rab Nexus Pull-On fleece jacket is a comfortable, light, and warm mid-layer that breathes well and has an adjustable deep chest zip. Minor complaints include some pilling after 18 months of use, and a little floppiness in the collar. Rab is not as prevalent in the U.S. but I found this in a large coop online shop when searching for a lighter mid-layer. Previous fleece options for me were too bulky to pack along with a puffy, but now I can take both on cold weather trips as the Rab Nexus Pull-on… Full review

L.L.Bean Women's Weather Challenger 3-in-1 Jacket

This is a versatile jacket that will keep you dry and warm and has the flexibility for those who need extra room for kayaking or fishing. I purchased this jacket to replace an older neoprene jacket. I wanted something that was fairly waterproof and had enough shoulder room for kayaking and fly fishing. I loved the options it had for my busy travel schedule and that it was packable.   I hadn't really tested the waterproof options of this jacket until I was in Scotland this last week where I had… Full review
