Is staying warm your chief concern, which at that temp it should be. If so, probably better off getting something technical like Columbia, EMS, Arcteryx, or something. If you want to incorporate a bit more style you could look at the Veilance line from Arcteryx. You may also want to look at a Peacoat that is super heavy or something like an old school rancher's shearling coat. I don't any anything technical, but I own the last two, and while each one weighs about ten pounds, they are the warmest things I won hands down.

Any quality insulated jacket + vest or knit and layers works fairly well. That's what I'm doing today and it's -40F / -40C with windchill. It also depends if it's a wet cold or a dry cold in your area..you would need to modify your outer shell to be water resistant or waterproof for maximum warmness if it's a wet cold. Keeping all areas of your body covered is also critical for protection against the wind and water. You lose few - several times your body heat depending on which one (wet being much worse). Gloves, hats, scarves and insulated boots are not to be disregarded make a huge difference in keeping your extremities protected.
 
Other another fashion related note, cleaning shoes and boots is quite therapeutic.

-20 Fahrenheit is cold as shit. I don't have particularly good cold tolerance, so I need to cover up. Some things I NEED in order to be somewhat comfortable at those temps for more than 10-15 minutes... baselayers, double socks and boots roomy enough to accomodate them OR proper clunky winter boots, scarf over my face, double layer hat and a hood that fits, mittens. Extremities count. No air gaps.

 

As such, I find really heavy winter coats to be a pain in the ass. I have a nice db greatcoat that I almost never wear because it's like wearing armor. Not in a good way. I will, however, wear a light long coat over primaloft jacket because I'm steezy like that. And it keeps my crotchal region warm.

Stanley,

 

Did you figure out when you got pickpocketed? Sounds like you've never been to NYC if you keep anything important in your back pocket.

 

Impressive passport reissue though, glad you didn't get pulled over for speeding.

Watch appreciation thread in CM is pretty next level right now. I'd love to be able to impulse buy a rose gold Lange 1. shog[1].gif

Also, from Exploder, there were 2 versions of the mainline parka right (material differences)?
