DressedDown's great Intro to Techwear guide includes a list

 

 

You should also check each brand's website for their current stockists.

Columbia is a huge company--or I should say, they make a huge array of products. (I used to work for them here in Portland OR). In the US, they suffer from a reputation as a mall brand, as they sell shit loads of cheep fleece in just about every dept. store known to man. However, they do make some excellent technical garments at their higher end--styling and colours are often terrible though, especially by SF standards.

It's worth noting that the EU and Asia have an entirely separate design team (still based in the US), so the product that's for sale there is 80-90% unique from the US line (there's some crossover, but the fit block for EU is slimmer overall, too).

So, that's a perfectly fine shell/rain jacket w/ simple styling, etc. But there's plenty of other options I would think for similar pricing.

What other options would you think of?

I have the cameraman and i've tried on veilance. I have to say the camerman though not technical superior since the Mackintosh portion of the jacket sucks at breathing, the jacket as a whole is closer to the 1200 dollar price point.

I mean that style or something similar (slightly, but not too "technical") at approximately that price.

What do you guys think of the Ace Hotel x Alpha Industries fish tail parka? Not super technical, but some nice waterproofing, etc. Anyone have a quick review or thoughts?

Not planning on buying it, but it looks pretty good.  Not sure about the price.

The waterproof cotton on the ghost pieces is fucking amazing. I was in a downpour in it and stayed completely dry.

The fabric feels a bit like a denim shirt. Perhaps a bit thicker like 6oz or something. Breathes nice. Just all around great jacket for fall. Highly recommend!

^Ten C? I thought their jackets loose their water resistant properties really fast....
