I have a great old Craghopper jacket with a detachable fleece liner and waterproof outer. It's done a great job, but is getting shabby.
I've been looking around recently for a replacement, but two-piece jackets are not really available any more. Modern jackets seem a LOT lighter and thinner - so I don't have the confidence that they'll do the job of my old jacket.
I'm looking for a jacket that will be warm putdoors at freezing temperatures, with a wind chill factor. I could also be stationary for long periods - so I won't be generating much heat.
I've been looking at the Omni-heat technology (e.g. from Columbia). Such tech now seems quite common, and a reason for the lighter/thinner jackets. But.....I don't want to invest in a jacket which doesn't turn out to be inadequate.
Has anyone any experience of buying outdoor wear recently, or has any recommendations?
