Also, it's awesome. Great modern take on traditional parkas, the details are well chosen (supersoft honey leather+copper=!) and oddly enough, I received several compliments on it.

Even the tasteless idiots living in Wisconsin can appreciate how great this thing is. That says a lot.

awesome

I got this same one in medium off of their ebay shop - I'm about a 39-40 and I'd say it fits well. I've been looking for a good wool-outer down jacket for a long time now and this is fantastic. 260 shipped is a great, great deal. Someone should jump on this. Has anyone seen images of the full jackets in the tweed or glen plaid wools? Surprised I haven't seen any of these - whenever similar-seeming models of the moncler/watanabe collab from a while back show up on ebay they go for $$.

North Face Purple Label actually made a down jacket in Harris Tweed (possibly other models as well). That thing was a beaut, very expensive and Japan-only. Figures...

How "warm" is the california winter jacket and is it waterproof?
post #459 of 611
i have a montagne parka in size M available, check my signature if you are interested. also, i would not say that the cali winter jacket is waterproof. water resistant is more like it. it's not a rain jacket.

I would also like to know how warm the California Winter Jacket is. I have minimal experience wearing 60/40, and can't figure out how extensively the jacket is lined/how thick the wool lining is. I'm about to move to a colder climate (currently in California, moving back to the UK) and I'm wondering whether this would only work for 2 seasons. Unfortunately I'm not close enough to SW to check it out in person, but I love the design and the construction looks terrific. Anyone have advice?

I don't think it's warm enough for wintertime, if I remember correct it's good for like 10-15C anything lower, you will need to layer up and if you spend a lot of time outside (even in the rain) it's worth keeping in mind that the 60/40 is only water-resistant, so at some point water will start to soak through.

I ended up getting a Albam Ventile instead, as I needed something waterproof.

Cheers, this is all good to know, thanks. How do you like the Albam Ventile? Is it the parka? I have quite a few Albam outerwear pieces, but so far have passed this one up.

Yeah a burgundy one, I love it the only problem is that the internal pocket doesn't have a zipper, so the content can fall out when you bent over.
