    I have the Krane Jonas (I believe that's the model) and it keeps me quite warm in the winter. I'm in Minnesota also, so the cold gets serious around here. No experience with the other two though, but I imagine the CG would be warmer just due to the thickness of the coat itself.

    Thanks for the reply! I'll be going to a store tomorrow that carries the Emory Bomber, so I'll comment on the warmth afterwards!

    Any recommendations for outerwear? I have nothing.
    What brands can I check out on eBay/B+S for parkas, jackets, toggle coats, down jackets ~$100? Really want a toggle coat (XS or Small) Are Patagonia good for down jackets?

    Patagonia is a good brand. But Canada Goose can be gotten on Gear Trade for as much as 70% off retail, if you don't mind that it won't be in new condition. You can still bring home an excellent down jacket without paying full retail. Also consider Eddie Bauer's B-9, which you may be able to get on sale for Black Friday - they have a sale going on now.

    I can vouch for Patagonia and its quality with down jackets and any of their coats in general. I also like the fact that they are not completely played out like North Face.

    Sorry, I forgot style nomenclature. There are only 9-10 days of winter in the year 2011, but it's still winter 2011. :paranoia:

    Where should I go in NYC to try on Fjallraven? Canada Goose? Also, what's the best place aside from Gear Trade to look for lightly used items?

    any recommendations: similar to patagonia isthmus, green color, fur hood (preferable). Doesn't have to be too warm, just for walking to class and around the city in the mid-atlantic. I was thinking the alpha industries n3b but it looks almost too thick. preferably under $300? Thanks!

    basically what i'm asking is, is the alpha n3b too warm to wear just to commute and casually? Everyone's talking about it for -20 but is it overkill for 20 degrees?

    Sounds like you're looking for a variety of things, including a technical jacket and a wool toggle coat. How about a technical toggle coat?

    Does anyone know the Baxter State Parka from LL bean? Although it's out of stock in my size, I'm curious to see what others thought of it or any of the winter jackets that LL bean carry. Their prices are great. I recently bought the Boots!

    I'm tired of wearing my heavy Dries parka and waxed cotton hunting jacket. For this winter, I want something simple like a woolen plaid coat like what Fassbender is wearing with a nonchalant knit scarf.

    Tried it on a few years back. My initial reaction was that it looked and felt cheap. The kind of down coat where you suspect it will leak down and feathers over the years. I could be totally wrong in that assessment. It's seems to be positively reviewed on their website. Other companies offering parkas in the same price range as LL Bean are Eddie Bauer and Lands End.

    Perhaps you don't want to spend this much, but for $200 more you can get a Marmot Whitehorse parka. I got one for my dad for Xmas. Waterproof and superior quality to the Baxter. If you are going to rock this parka for potentially 10 years it's worth the extra money IMO.

    Fassbender looks great here. No doubt.

    A parka and a woolen plaid coat are two entirely different looks. Personally I like the protection a parka offers. Even if it is a bit heavy. Especially if it has a real fur hood.

    Hmm you make good points, where does your dad live? How did it hold up in the freezing temps?
