Best winter jacket for Seattle for commuting by public transport
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?
- Airbnb HotBotGet 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 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.
