What brands can I check out on eBay/B+S for parkas, jackets, toggle coats, down jackets ~$100? Really want a toggle coat (XS or Small) Are Patagonia good for down jackets?

Sounds like you're looking for a variety of things, including a technical jacket and a wool toggle coat. How about a technical toggle coat?

350 350

EDIT - not $100, sorry didn't read that part shog[1].gif

Does anyone know the Baxter State Parka from LL bean? Although it's out of stock in my size, I'm curious to see what others thought of it or any of the winter jackets that LL bean carry. Their prices are great. I recently bought the Boots!

I'm tired of wearing my heavy Dries parka and waxed cotton hunting jacket. For this winter, I want something simple like a woolen plaid coat like what Fassbender is wearing with a nonchalant knit scarf.

Tried it on a few years back. My initial reaction was that it looked and felt cheap. The kind of down coat where you suspect it will leak down and feathers over the years. I could be totally wrong in that assessment. It's seems to be positively reviewed on their website. Other companies offering parkas in the same price range as LL Bean are Eddie Bauer and Lands End.

Perhaps you don't want to spend this much, but for $200 more you can get a Marmot Whitehorse parka. I got one for my dad for Xmas. Waterproof and superior quality to the Baxter. If you are going to rock this parka for potentially 10 years it's worth the extra money IMO.

Fassbender looks great here. No doubt.

A parka and a woolen plaid coat are two entirely different looks. Personally I like the protection a parka offers. Even if it is a bit heavy. Especially if it has a real fur hood.

Hmm you make good points, where does your dad live? How did it hold up in the freezing temps?

I'm looking for the same thing, anyone know?

My father lives in Boston. I just gave it to him last week plus it hasn't been very cold there since. I do know that he has worn it at night to walk his dog and he says it is very warm and he loves it. You can find reviews of the coat online and for the most part it gets praise. Also Marmot is a very respected brand. If you are interested in the coat, I recommend tracking it down in Toronto to try on if you can. I always recommend that with coats. Especially for sizing. I tried the coat on before wrapping it up and I loved it except for the fact that the side pockets are not lined with fleece. Not a deal-breaker but I noticed that. Chances are you will be wearing gloves if you are rocking this coat.

Let me know if you have any other questions or want suggestions/advice. I've been parka crazy the past few months for my dad and myself.

Thanks for your help. There is a store that sells marmot, I work literally 10 seconds across the mall. Will report back tomorrow

I can't believe this Dries parka is 10 years old. This is probably my most durable and most used item of clothing I ever owned. It still in great condition

Hi, I'm new here and decided to joining this because of all the great replies on winter jackets/coats you all have put here on this thread. I am currently in the market for one and based on everything, I think I am going to purchase the Fjallraven Cantwell Jacket. However, I can only order this item online as I do not know where to find this in stores here where I live. So this begs the question, does this jacket run large or remain true to size? The reason why I ask this is because I am a small guy, standing only 5 ft 6 in. I have a slim build too so that makes it that much more difficult to find any winter coat that can fit me properly. Since the Fjallraven Cantwell Jacket has sizes XS and even XXS, I think I may fit into either. Does anyone have this jacket who would like to share if it runs large or small? Any help will be appreciated. Also, are there any other brands that sell winter coats that will fit smaller men? Thanks in advance!
