    just get a shell and a base layer for colder weather - get it from some outdoors company...MEC, REI, Arc'teryx, Patagonia, North Face, etc...

    Soft shell + Ultra Light Down jacket—wear individually or layered together. Good for travel since both take very little space.

    Or this. Took my lined International field jacket on my last long trip and didn't need anything else.

    ^ Mostly in France and planning on going up to Sweden, maybe to the Laplands to see the Aurora Borealis (but if it's too cold I won't go). Then to Poland in the summer.

    These 2 jackets are what I have in mind at the moment. Will wear layers and ultra light down jacket

    Barbour Bedale

    Leaning more towards the Barbour. Anyone know where is the best place to get the Barbour Bedale?

    I doubt that any jacket that you could comfortably wear in Southeast Asia is going to be sufficient to keep you warm in Lapland during the winter.

    Yeah, below 0 degrees celsius in the most southern part of Sweden now.
    I wore uniqlo heatech, a thick flannel shirt, big Schneider scarf covering the whole torso and a wool coat this morning and I was still freezing.

    It's gonna be worse if you go further up north and Lapland is just miserably cold (-20 atm).

    I'd get the Nanamica and if you pair it with a ultra light down and some heattech you'll probably be fine.

    I probably won't even wear the jacket in SE Asia. Just want it to be lightweight so that it can be easy to carry around in my backpack.


    How's the weather during summer?

    Southern Scandinavia is 15-20c in the summer and 25-27c on a good day.


    The weather is the best around august.

    Why not just amil the jacket back home when you don't need it anymore? Saves a lot of annoyance and isn't that expensive.

    i get way too OCD with the particulars of tailoring and i end up messing stuff up. usually it can be fixed, but best case scenario its a waste on money and more time without my stuff, and worst case i tailor something to death. anyone else a fool liek me?

    I've tailored some things a few times. Sometimes it's a matter of changing taste, or changing weight, or just dialing in my preferences. I haven't actually damaged anything but I've spent too much in retrospect. Then again, having something tailored right is, to me, the difference between wearing something all the time or not at all.

    My IS derbies arrived today. They made me feel two things.

    1. Did not expect the texture on the leather to be wool. Thought it was just a very heavy suede.
    2. BREEZYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE BOOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
