I know you guys aren't /fa/, but most of these jacket choices seem to come from /out/ brands to do /out/ things so I figured you guys would be much more useful for this. I'm trying to choose between several jackets/coats, and was hoping to get opinions on which would be best. These choices are all expensive as shit, so let's assume money is no object.

1. pic related, https://www.fortisclothing.co.uk/shop/waterproof-falklands-coat/

I've read mostly good things about the brand. They used to be called Country Covers, and were known for making a version of the windproof smock that was apparently pretty good. They don't say what materials were used for the outer coat, just call it "ripstop" and say that it's waterproof and windproof. I'm thinking it's 50/50 poly cotton with a waterproof dropliner and maybe some kind of spray-on coating, but I could be wrong. It's kind of hokey, but I like that it has a drop-down waterproof seat. It's also got a shitton of pockets which I regard as a plus. It's insulation layer is also a separate jacket itself, so you can wear the outer layer alone, the inner layer alone, or both depending on the weather.

2. Swarzi Wapiti, https://www.swazi.co.nz/shop/mens/wapiti-coat/

I've read a lot of good reviews about this coat, and almost nothing but praise for the brand in general. Most people seem to choose their Tahr anorak, but I think it and this coat are made of the same material, which is some brand-exclusive deal. It's got side vents, which might be useful, and can be rolled up completely into the hood. Again, mostly hokey features but kind of cool. The only downside is that this coat only seems to have 3 pockets, which is S H I T. sure, the 2 on the front are pretty big, and the internal map pocket is pretty deep from what I've seen, but it's pretty mediocre compared to all the other coats.

cont'd.

3. Paramo Halcon (pic related) http://www.paramo-clothing.com/en-gb/explore-range/product/?pk=5A046B7C-748C-4E93-8397-E2710BFB5631&attributes=FCBDB5D3-90B7-4766-871F-389AF483A8BE (holy fuck that link)

I've heard good things about the brand, and the jacket looks breddy good. It's made of something called NikWax, which is the brand's own fabric. it looks like a pretty neat waterproofing system, but it also seems kind of "flimsy" and needs to be recoated via wash in waterproofing somewhat regularly. It's got arm vents near the biceps, and 9 pockets. The brand seems to be pretty enviornmentally conscious, which is nice, but not really something I think about much when it comes to jackets.

4. Fjallraven Ovik Eco-shell, https://www.fjallraven.us/products/ovik-eco-shell-jacket

Again, I've heard great things about the brand. The jacket is once again made by the brand's own fabric. It's got at least 6 pockets, but I'm not sold on the 2 back pockets.

5. Harkila Pro Hunter X, https://harkila.com/products/jackets/pro-hunter-x-jacket

same shit for this one as the one's before it; I've read good reviews of both the brand and this coat in particular. its got goretex and cordura, and its got its own set of special features like a radio pocket on the arm and a reflective strip on the other arm that you can pull out and wrap around for hunting and shit. Its also got a 5 year warranty, which is neat but not really a dealbreaker.

Which of these would be the best? They're all in the same class of clothing, in that they're all hard-wearing hunting/stalking jackets, but which does it best? also, I could be missing something on the brands; their could be plenty of shitty reviews that I've overlooked on any of them, so please let me know if this is the case.

i have this dakine wyeast, its just an water proof shell (layer up for the weather) more so designed for snowboarding or skiing but works great for camping to, alot of pockets, super light weight, and its long so it covers your ass keeping you toasty.
>>
>>1103602
I like it, the pocket flap designs are pretty neat. the graphic on the inside of the hood is nice too. I'll have to look into it more

Are you looking for a stalking jacket? Reminds me: I remember a while back I tried getting an /out/ posse together to get some more of these made.

My favorite /out/ jacket is a softshell jacket with a nice fleece underneath. It's nice and breathable, and when you are more active you can remove the shell so you aren't sweating to death.

Pic related is my softshell (different color though)
>>
go try them on OR make the wrong choice
>>
>>1103909
you dont over heat?

my dead of winter is i guess what is called a hardshell (i call it alpine) with a fleece liner but in fall i have a canvas jacket that i love. sometimes i throw a plasma shell over a hoodie and that gets me running really hot, i cant imagine what its like over a fleace
>>
>>1103943
A soft shell breathes much better than a hardshell, which is why I recommended it. The only downside is they are less waterproof, which is not a problem in winter for me (some are pretty good though, especially when treated).

And as I said, when I am active I remove my shell and just have the fleece. I've never had a problem as any breeze cuts through the fleece without a shell keeping me cool. You just have to pick the correct weight fleece for your activity!

If you are dong extreme exercise then you don't really need to be wearing any jacket, strip to your base layers.

I wear a combat shirt that I got for like $5. It literally never rains here and during winter I just need to wear a fleece underneath and I'm all good. Also if it did rain, there's loops to attach a shell to.

Milsurp is generally pretty good. It's functional but cheap so you don't have to worry about damaging your fancy $750 jacket.

No issues with milsurp here, was actually thinking of getting pic related just to have one. The only things I don't like are the reflective bands at the wrists and the police lettering on the back. I'm pretty sure I could take the lettering off, but I don't know what to do about the wristbands.

Good cheap flannel jacket for extreme winters anyone?

MN extreme, and a bonus would be old hunting aesthetic.
>>
>>1104125
It's cheap and works but I'd hate to carry one around in a pack though. I'd prefer a down puffy for extreme cold or polarfleece for anything less. I guess part of this is what you want to use your jacket for. 90% of the time I'm /out/ in the winter I don't want a huge bulky jacket on, it's too hot. It's only at night or when you are standing around that you really more than base- and mid-layers.

Over the life of your jacket, the cost difference isn't a huge factor unless your buying expedition gear or Velben goods. What's difference of $100-200 over the course of 15+ years?

they're pretty nice. removable liner, 50 pockets, wrist cuffs feel nice and stay put, really warm. plus it's a conversation starter
main annoyance is that it's kind of baggy
>>
>>1104236
since it's baggy I take it that these jackets run big? I'm getting mixed signals from reviews on sportsman's guide; some say too big, some say too small, most either are happy with the fit or don't care. Also is it like >>1104090 said about the lettering and cuffs? I thought I saw where the cuffs were just stitched on in a closeup pic, but I could've just been seeing what I wanted to see.
>>
>>1104280
the arms fit in length, but there is a lot of space inside the coat. good for wearing over other layers.
I would order the size you think fits; I'm 6'2" and a 106 fits me well.
The lettering is pressed on, and the cuffs have stitching in them, although they could be pressed on as well.

>>
>>1104280
Surplus jackets are generally baggy so armor and other layers can fit under it. It'll still sit on your shoulders properly and have long enough sleeves though so it's not that big of a deal.

I can speak for the Swazi. I have the Tahr and finally got to use it yesterday.

Was out in the Metcalf wilderness and I forgot my rain cover for my pack and my stuff got soaked.

Had to go 8 miles back in a decent downpout with high winds and everything got sucked accept what the coat covered. No wetting out even where the water was pressed against the coat by my pack.

I left it in my front seat and in the morning the coat had pools of water ON TOP OF IT. The brushed surface just pushes all the water to the top so the water sits on the material instead of soaking in. The brushed surface also keeps it quite.

This beast feels like a suit of armor.

Pros:
Very tough, very water resistant/proof, very resistant to wetting out, elastic cuffs, silent, long cut to protect top of pants and when sitting.

Cons:
Kinda heavy for a waterproof jacket, pockets arent bad but not the best either, not as packable as a lighter jacket such as arcteryx, can be hard to wiggle into sometimes if you get the anorak.

A good old fashioned brown Carhartt jacket made from duck leather. This is the jacket worn by men who hunt or work outdoors. Tough as nail and very warm in the winter. Pockets are big enough to hold a box of shotgun shells or whatever you need to carry. Only real men wear this jacket.

Carhartt jackets run big so you can layer stuff underneath. Just buy a size smaller than you normally wear.

I spotted something on eBay I haven't seen before. So in Australia there's this little company called Agmer which makes work wear.
It looks like they've tried their hand making a rip-off of Swanndri (waterproofed wool clothing) called "dinkum dri."
Their shirt is 90% wool 10% polyester instead of Swanndri's 100% wool but I just copped one for about $32 USD when a Swanndri would be about $99 USD.

I'm /fa/ as FUCK.

I would not really describe your options as intrinsically fashionable. The Fjallraven comes closest because it is a dead-bird status-brand, but as a totally nondescript hooded utility coat it doesn't bring anything to the table that any other high-quality utility coat would not.

I was in a Fjallraven retail store recently and their fabrics & construction were no better and no worse than any other decent-but-not-fantastic brand.


Of the coats you posted, I feel like the Harkila offers the most attention to detail. But it is impossible to be sure without physically handling each of them in turn.

Suggest me something similar to post related while being suitable for /out/ - hiking and hunting primarily. I have a jacket but it states it's 100% fucking cotton, and I guess that's a big no? Doesn't feel cheap, and is pretty thicc, butt it's soft material which can't withstand thorns and tearing.

Definitely hooded + neck protection of course. Looking for something bomber jacket styled, not too long.
>>
I don't know any of those so I can't give you useful advice sorry, but what do you plan on doing while you wear the jacket? Those are all very expensive and I am fine mountaineering in winter at 3000+m with a 50$ softshell jacket and 80$ down jacket. I don't really see a point in a jacket that costs several hundred $ unless you're doing something really extreme or living in Greenland
>>
>>1113568
Just regular-mild walking that hiking/hunting requires, countryside/mountain terrain, but in a jacket which won't counter act in case there is rain or something that cotton jacket wouldn't be good for. Doesn't need to be expensive, just cover common needs - rain/wind.

Owner of Keb Jacket, keb down zip, keb hoodie, keb pants, vidda pro, reporter lite jacket, and Friluft 35 pack here. You're right on the money.

It's good stuff. Great, maybe. But it isn't worth the money, imo. Get it all on a steep discount. Never, ever pay full price for it. You're screwing yourself. The bulk of it is made in China. Craftsmanship is typical. It looks great. That's it.


I wish I'd bought an Osprey Atmos and gotten the Sarek trekking coat and just modded it with some zip vents.
>>
>>1103589
NikWax is a very recognized brand in the sportswear industry, and most hardshell (read membrane) jackets will need to be recoated to stay effective - thus covering your Harkila jacket but also any most jackets on the market.

This is because a membrane jacket consists of layers - be it 2, 2.5 or 3 (these three being the most common). The membrane layer will be what makes the jacket waterproof, and is also the part covered by the water column, which to some extent shows how waterproof a fabric is.
As rain or dirt gets onto the membrane it will deteriorate. This is why most jackets nowadays are coated with a DWR (Durable Water Repellancy)-system, where NikWax have a leading technology. This ensures that water beads off the fabric, keeping the outer fabric dry, while also increasing breathability and longevity.

Most other alternatives will contain PFC (Perfluorocarbons), which is environmentally hazardous and is indirectly a cause of cancer. The outdoor industry's move away from this chemical has caused most outerwear to fall in quality and rise in price the past 10 years.


>tldr
My point is that the nikwax fabric isn't actually flimsy, and it should not be a factor when you're looking for a jacket. It might need a bit more care, but in the long run it will probably function better.

>>
>>1113713
That being said - all the jackets you've dug up seem to be great choices. I can personally vouch for Fjällräven being a great brand, and whilst I haven't even heard of Fortis and Swarzi they too look like solid investments.

Pro-tip: with a heavy jacket like this ventilation zips can be really handy if you plan on being in the slightest bit of activity without sweating furiously.

ARCTYREX MACAI

I actually bought this jacket shits so cash
>>
I have an expensive jacket but I never use it. Instead of buying one heavy jacket use layers.
1. Thermal underwear $20
2. Bush shirt $50
3. Wool jersey $50
4. Hoodie if necessary $30
5. Waterproof $150 for a good one $20 for a parka will be fine
6. Denim jacket (if going through gorse to protect waterproof) $20 from opshop
7. Add scarf and beanie

+Easy to change temp, remove or add a layer
+Can wash a layer at a time and still stay warm
+Packs up smaller (especially puff jackets)
+Way cheaper

If you start sweating while out it can become quite dangerous because your skin and layers underneath will stay wet. When you stop moving you will get really cold. Also you will get really thirsty.

You're more than fine with general clothing and milsurps.

I've had the Skogsö Jacket for two years now, same colour as your pic.
It's not water proof oc, and I hope you didn't expect it to be.
I find it to be a great wind jacket with a good cut that doesn't restrict my movement. The hood adjusts well like it should on any expensive jacket.
I renew the waxing from time to time. When it's heavily waxed it will keep light to medium rain out for about 15 mins or so before it begins to soak through the fabric. But then again, the fabric dries quite fast. I haven't put it trough a lot of hard abuse yet allthough I use it daily right now, so I can't say anything about it's durability, however beeing good quality poly-cotton it should hold up well.

I really hope for a snowy winter this year because I'd love to wear this instead of my goretex shell when on longer trips (waxed G-1000 is water resistant enough for snow, not for extended rain)

Saw this today, Kuhl Arktik Down parka. Anyone have any experience with Khul jackets or this in particular? I love the aesthetics of it, seems fitting on Hoth. It was also bretty comfy.

Only spec I remember is 800 down fill and that its $400.

I don't recall what they're going for now, but the Marmot Precip is a wonderful rain jacket. That being said, anything that has decent pit zips, an adjustable hood, and cuff closures, and you should be golden. Check out campsaver, moosejaw, Amazon, or backcountry for some deals.

>fur trim is fake but looks real in person

It's a tacky fashion parka for city people from an otherwise good company. The fuck do you want a parka for anyway? Parkas are for sedentary people.

as a fairly cheap option, go for a gorka suit. sub $100 for a whole set. its my go to for /out/ jacketing
>>
>>1118956

They're good quality in construction and materials but they are slightly weird.

>>1119102

Has it.

I would not buy if you cannot try it on and see how it feels to you.
>>
>>1119132
Oh, sensible person on /out/.

Other than that, if fashion doesn't matter and not going for the high end waterproof stuffs, I just go get cheapest shit from second hand store to do outdoor stuff. Doesn't matter if they get burned or pooped so bad that you can throw them to garbage bin.

Live out my Hoth fantasies, mostly. It would literally be an impuls buy as I already have pic related. But I tried it on yesterday like >>1119140 recommended and it was comfy. I also spend lots of time in the snow xc skiing, snow shoeing, and just hiking around up here in South Dakota.
>>
>>1119140
Do you like it, have you used it out a lot? Do you overheat quickly while wearing it? Ultimately I'd probably be better off buying a better sleeping bag than my marmot bag.

Good day boys im looking for a similar jacket to this one in the picture, any leads would be very much appreciated
>>
>>1119510
I can't tell what material that is supposed to be. But maybe an M65 jacket? Though I think those are just gonna be OD green.
>>
>>1119510
That's going to be harder to find with a hood. Most field jackets don't have them. The closest I know of off hand is fucking expensive, $300, and is far more polished/fashion orientated -- Fjallraven Sarek jacket. Not going to turn you away, they make good shit. It's just overpriced and you might be able to find a cheap, closer match of similar quality if it's milsurp. Google field jacket, it's a warehouse worth of options to dig through.
>>
>>1119510
Your best bet is a chink jacket off of Amazon or Ebay. That man is clearly Russian, or using soviet equipment, but the jacket could be anything. Type in "Military Jacket hood" on ebay, bunch of Chinese cotton jackets will pop up.

Otherwise, go for an M65 or something.

I got one of these a winter or two ago, I'm in love with it. It's Fjallraven so it's expensive but the quality is pretty great, it's cosy most of the winter but you might want to chuck a mid layer under it when the temperature goes below zero. https://www.cotswoldoutdoor.com/p/fjallraven-mens-raeven-winter-jacket-A1213515.html?colour=132

I think any of these would work and to get that glossy look you'll have to wax the canvas, which will also greatly increase water resistance

mine was 50/50 polycotton all over and it wasn't even a new one. I think your info is a bit outdated, I'm sure new production gorkas are not full cotton.
