Loungers, what warm coat do you possess that is both fashionable, functional, and affordable?

I need a coat and was looking at one of those nice Columbia coats but they didn't have my size

mornings or are you looking to go mountain climbing in it? Seems like USE would be necessary in what coat to buy.

I have a Patagonia Nano Puff from years ago, a Patagonia R2 techface, a Mountain Khakis Field Jacket, a Mountain Khakis wool jacket, a few Patagonia Better Sweater Pullovers, a Mountain Hardware Pullover, etc.

The key is layers.

It made the fabric all nasty, well, like somebody rubbed oil on it. I guess because essentially they did.

I guess if it had been a leather seat, it may have actually made the seat softer.

but it seems....unnecessary. Walk me through it. It's not that dissimilar to cast iron, but you could argue that there isn't another pan, non-stick or otherwise, that will QUITE do what a well-seasoned cast iron pan can do. But a coat? We have synthetics that are literally centuries ahead of waxed burlap technology from 1826.

That said, I've seen some ads for the Huckberry waxed trucker jacket, and it looks pretty sharp. But I ain't looking for maintenance (and possible mishaps like IE had) in a jacket.

1) It's warm and comfy AF. Warmer than my technical jackets by a long shot, down included.
2) I let my wax go....didn't get it redone as it started to wear...like it better now. I'm not gonna take it out in a monsoon and it stays dry for the conditions I'd use it in.
3) Craftsmanship. Hard to find anything that's a) not made in China/similar and b) built to a crazy high standard these days, and I guess I appreciate stuff that is. If he wants it one day there will be no issues passing this jacket down to my son. It's not going to even get snagged on something that would shred a nylon technical shell, and if it does, they have a factory repair service to fix it. I guess it's like a nice, well-made watch (or any other consumer good) in that sense. Sure, other stuff tells time, but there's something about something built to a standard vs a price. I can't drop $$$ on a beautiful Holland and Holland shotgun, but $395 for a great jacket's in the budget so c'est la vie.

I've had mine for 15ish years now...still wear it. I got some Carhartt insulated bibs when I was working in N Illinois and those things are unbelievable. I can be outside working very comfortably in -20...not that I'll ever need it anymore, but like Greenr said...all about the layers. I'll wear those bibs out in the stand if it's below freezing w/ drawers and I'm completely comfortable.

Also have a gonia nano puff - wear that all the time now, but it's also great as an insulation layer out in the woods if you need it.

Drake makes some good stuff too...I have a non-camo pullover that's the same make/material as the camo ones that tuck into your bibs. that thing is warm AF and very waterproof. Also have a wind breaking fleece pullover from them, and it's bad ### as well. Scout Drake's "The Pit" on their website to find some of the deals...that's what I did. Over the course of time I have a pretty dope ensemble of hunting clothes for half the price.

I also have your standard heady AF gonia pullovers that are good for southern fall/winter weather

someone was knocking the flannels but I'm starting to like wearing those outside. a t-shirt and a flannel while outside working and #### is plenty for me if temps are above freezing.

RELAXED FIT DUCK BLANKET-LINED DETROIT JACKET... except mine is FR rated.
*** Mine is just two layers of the duck fabric, so it's not very warm. If you're working and it's cold, the cut of this jacket allows for your belly to hang out if you're really raising your arms alot.

FLAME-RESISTANT DUCK TRADITIONAL COAT/QUILT-LINED... except mine has lanyard access on the back for wearing safety harnesses
***all of the velcro has completely come unsewed on this jacket. Otherwise it's warm and nice.
https://www.carhartt.com/product/101618/flame-resistant-duck-traditional-coatquilt-lined

LOOSE FIT FIRM DUCK INSULATED BIBERALL - I have two pair. Black and Brown.
***These are my single favorite article of clothing I own. Black ones are for work (hides grease well). The brown ones are for home/farm/hunting. The black ones get soaked in some industrial grade degreaser and pressure washed at 3000psi ever spring. The brown ones get washed once or twice a year. Right now they're covered in mud, blood, dip spit, and probably a touch of urine. These things may very well last a lifetime.

For cold weather, it's pretty dang hard to beat Carhartt. The Force helmet liner is a killer ski mask. It will stretch after a few years and not fit snugly against your face... I'm on my second one and I love it. https://www.carhartt.com/product/A267/force-helmet-liner

My favorite jacket ever was this one. I still have a 90's version I wear occasionally that has a button out liner. I've washed it so many times the pockets are starting to rip from the jacket body

All of my carhartt jackets were christmas gifts from my employer. All but one are covered in grease and get used as Carhartt was designed to be used (hence the FR rating).

I came out of pocket for the insulated coveralls, but they were a slickdeal I grabbed up from Sears... I think I gave less than $20 per pair of those. If I could turn back time (like Cher), then I would buy a truckload of them.
