Anyone know where I can find an olive field jacket in size 56? Full or sale price. Can't locate one anywhere on the web.
Good price on the PARKA also, not a 48 Oh well...........If 54 can fit you you have a good opportunity there : http://www.saintalfred.com/collections/ten-c/products/field-jacket
Otherwise try :
Can anyone comment on the actual warmth of the various liners? I was just gifted the deck jacket with the shearling liner, and while the whole package looks undeniably cool I'm feeling a little skeptical. The shearling just seems too thin (as compared to other shearling jackets I've felt) to have any serious insulating value in conditions below, say, 40 degrees. And does anyone know the fill rating on the down they use? I know, I know, this isn't a purely technical garment, but someone shelled out for this thing and at these prices I'd feel better for them if I knew fashion and function were at least split 50/50 - as it is I'm getting the sense that the scale is tipped heavily towards the former.
I have the shearling and down liner, but the shearling version is an older model that I think is thinner than the new one (though I haven't seen the new one).
FWIW, I think they work pretty well. But you're probably right that they're not good for temps below 40. You might want something warmer in those cases. Although with a bit of layering, the Ten C liner + a coat would be fine.
Thanks for your reply. So I guess this thing won't be replacing my arctic parka. What about the new hooded down liners? Anyone have any experience with those?
You mean Nigel Cabourn's Arctic parka? I have the Everest and think they serve different purposes. Cabourn's is 45 and below, Ten C for anything warmer.
Have the shearling and felt hood liners. They're more decorative than anything, but I also don't really use the hoods. Felt is nice for a more low key look, but I mostly have the shearling in.
My set is basically wearing the shearling liner on its own (though, again, mine is the old version). Down liner goes into the jackets. Shearling liner into the hoods. I keep the felt liner around cause sometimes I think it would look better in certain situations, but I never really swap it in.
