    Back at home and found one of my father's old down jackets from his time as a trekking guide in Ladakh. It's made by Mountain Equipment, a mountaineering company from Cheshire. Nice and light with good heat retention. Should provide a good alternative to my down explorer, which can be a bit heavy sometimes. Almost all of my outerwear is my fathers- green bedale, gloverall duffle and now this.

    I could do with some help picking a few winter coats. I like the following styles:





    but unfortunatly they don't have my size. I am a 32 1/2" chest - 5 ft9 and about 130lb - So I guess I will need a XS. I am willing to spend up to £250 for a coat, but would rather not pay more than that and would rather pay less. I am also after a simple, leather bomber jacket (With motorcycle collar) for around the same price.

    Please help my find alternatives - I've not had much luck so far.

    I'm hesitating on getting a Krane Emory Bomber vs TOJ Fishtail. Can anyone comment on how warm it is for Canadian winter (i.e. -30 degrees celcius)??

    I have some stuff from them and it's really well priced, there stuff is also fairly common in the UK.


    I have just bought a Norrøna /29 Parka, it's goretex and ret9, so that should be an improvement from my CG.

    Expensive. You can get a Spiewak Gold Fleece N3B parka off Rakuten for $260 - made in USA with real coyote fur hood trim. Considering these are imported nowadays, I like the quality and the price.

    Krane sucks for most folks.

    Since you seem to be working for them, this is in poor taste. Although I do think the Krane is awesome and totally worth it
