Anyone know the best place to get a large floppy hat?

Thrift?

Ideally, maybe some kind of waxed texture fabric., or am I doomed to have to shell out $500+ for one from Ann D?

What do you guys think is a good jacket for travelling around the world? I am looking for jacket that is able to keep me warm during winter in Europe, somewhat waterproof but also lightweight so that I am would be able to carry it around with me in South East Asia. So far I am thinking of getting a Nanamica Cruiser Jacket, good choice? Any other recommendations?


More recommendations please?

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.

barbour with liner
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

Nanamica Cruiser
1000


Barbour Bedale
1000


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.
