    'If you complain about CG getting wet, it is probably not cold enough to wear the jacket' - while talking with the warranty department lady.

    But then what do I know; everyone in this thread seems to live in frozen tundras while I live in a warm state of Minnesota where I still occasionally see people wearing shorts :p

    The quality was "light" as well.



    LOL, I had mine get wet in -5c snow and when it went from -2 to just above 0c.

    I've owned the Fjällräven 'Yupik' Parka for a few seasons now. It's plenty warm, though I've never not tested it in conditions below 5 degrees Fahrenheit. Overall, I'm pleased with its ability to withstand both wind and moisture. I own the black model so I probably can't speak to the fabric's ability to keep clean (ensure that you use powdered laundry detergent when washing it, as with most technical gear).

    A few design aspects of the 'Yupik' I appreciate: 1. Numerous and accessible pockets [way more than the video below would suggest], 2. Sleeves a tiny bit longer than similar brands, without constricting elastic cuffs, 3. Hood size, shape, and feel, 4. Bilateral headphone cord suspenders. The only complaints I have regarding the parka include the faux-fur on the hood (removable) and main zipper dongle being located on the left side (though that was just a matter of my expectations and prior experience).

    In terms of sizing, I wear 40R jackets and a 'Medium' sized parka is pretty snug in the chest (though slightly less so in the waist). For me that's okay because I rarely layer extensively, but others may have different needs.

    Is this the only Outer Wear thread on SF? Something more from the Formal Menswear segment?

    I would take the Fjellräven or find some extra green and get a Haglöfs.
