    Please leave the stupid stone island comments! I bought this jacket because of the fabric not for other things!

    Awesome!
    For myself, it's a bit of a toss up between a Canada Goose and Barbour jacket. I like the way Barbour jackets look a little more than CG, but I don't believe they were made for true winter conditions...le sigh. So I question whether I'll be warm or not. Not only that but both are quite expensive - certainly can't afford to ring them both in U_U.

    Gotta keep it real and stick with the arctic duck Carharrt :frown:

    This will be its third winter, and it's the first one I've kept unwashed. I think this season might finally have some nice stuff breaking through.

    ^ Canada Goose are surely warm but IMO they are too bulky and too thick. I don't know, I guess it's just personal preference eh?

    ^ Actually, one of the reasons why I'm unsure whether I should get one or not haha.
    Yeah, they certainly look really cozy and warm, but I feel like they may end up being a tad cumbersome (for my lifestyle at least). I mean, I'm just a student - not a researcher living out in Antarctica in a small trailer-like home, outside for the most of the day, ya know? However, with the other jacket, I can at least wear it on cooler days without looking like I'm crazy...and just layer up when Winter rolls by!

    Man, when its -40 coming at you, Canada Goose is the choice (which incidentally, is what they're actually designed for), but honestly, I have no idea how you would wear one in Holland. I won't wear mine unless its colder than -10 because its too warm even with only a t-shirt underneath.

    ^that sounds like a perfect jacket :-D I use the same thin jacket for 5 years now, as I love it, but have to layer up at least 5 pieces, until I can barely move :lol:

    ^got some fitpics of it?
    almost forgot this as a nice alternative for canada goose and others!...

    barbour jackets are too thin for german winters, aren't they?
    even when wearing the inner hide-vest?

    Canada Goose, Woolrich and the others are too expensive. The Carhartt is nice, warms nice, looks nice. Sry, no fit pic. If I ever pay 500something for a jacket it will be a Nigel Cabourn or something like that. Ma Barbour jacket is a flyweight, far too thin for winter. It works with a fleecejacket under it, but not for really cold days.
