Looking for reviews. Also debating down vs synthetic. It is said that synthetic is better for wet weather. Does it apply to Seattle rain also?

      Considering it’s been below freezing this week, yes, it’s not a stretch to say folks are cold.

    Don’t wear a jacket. Or if you do, make sure to wear one that gets soaked and makes you look miserable.

    Most of all, no umbrellas.

    You don’t want to look like a tourist, right?

    Get a Gortex shell and learn to wear wool and other non-jacket insulation for the winter.

      I'm amazed at people wearing $400 arcteryx shells waiting for the bus in Seattle. That shit is meant for brutally harsh conditions, like blowing and freezing rain in the alpine. That is the only place where I wear mine. Literally any no-name shell off amazon will work just fine in the city.

      I'm amazed at people driving 300+ hp cars on our streets with all that traffic. Literally any 80hp cheap car would work just fine for your commute.

      Cisco... Most people in Seattle skii. So highly possible they see those harsh conditions (may be not). You don't buy a Porsche for freeways and a Prius for city driving. Do you?

      I don’t think there is waterproof down .. they are water resistant at max ..

    After you get a jacket, get a pair of nice flip flops, just so you have that real Seattle winter look.

    I wear a Burberry trench coat. I guess London is quite similar to Seattle about weather in winter. It’s water resistant, wind proof and very stylish. Makes me different from those in Canada goose or gortex jackets at first glance.

      And a nice cashmere sweater inside keeps me warm enough.
