yes, so disappointing they couldn't fulfill the bike jacket orders! was eagerly awaiting it but, such is the way of things i suppose. that california winter looks super nice, thanks for the heads up. i've also been eyeing the norse projects x elka raincoat (http://www.uptherestore.com/product/elka-raincoat-black) and apolis wax canvas anorak (http://store.apolisglobal.com/event/...374d15f79e/#sc) for a more rain-centric approach. aaron's site is down right now, but i'll...
man am i bad at this. decided to pick up the Barbour x Tokito Bicycle Jacket, as my severe-cold-weather need had already passed, and lo and behold Opening Ceremony was out of stock (despite completing my purchase perfectly well on their online store. thanks web developers.) Gotta figure out a better way of going about this....

The Baracuta is nice, but I was hoping for something hooded, given SF spontaneous showers. maybe the g28? @guitar, I should clarify by "biking" I certainly don't mean "cycling;" more generic city/school 15 min. commute biking, the key being that i'd be exposed to the whimsy and temper of the elements, esp. waiting for buses, munis, etc., and dealing with a decent wind chill while riding. Do you still think a lined jacket is ill-advised?
Have seen that post, most of that is for down jackets and cold survival however; while i'm going to be in 20degree pittsburgh for a week, most of my time is in SF, which gets chilly but not heavy down jacket cold. I also can't do the nylon/puffy jacket style, and LL Bean is way too big for me (5'6, 130lb, 27/28" waist). Will check out wellensteyn; any tips on what the fit tends to be like?
so I'm looking to get a hooded jacket/parka, mostly for san francisco rain/biking/fog, so water and windproof is definitely needed. trying to stay under 1000 (otherwise i'd get a moncler dijon and walk around in wool and down bliss). I'd love to have the navy Mt Rainier Design Inyo Down Parka, but have pretty much given up hope on finding one. Ditto for the Waste(twice) collabo. Have tried velour, uniforms for the dedicated, acne...none quite worked (im small, hence the...
