    I'm really curious about the Buckly. If you wouldn't mind providing your dimensions (above the waist you pervert), this way I can get an idea of the size I might need... that would be cool. Is it a heavy feeling jacket? I just wanna make sure my vag stays nice and warm while I'm doing the outdoors stuff.

    Here ya go:

    ALPHA JACKET - Helly Hansen Official Online Store

    No need to layer up, just an base undershirt, a microfleece on top and thats it. I've skiied at -20 with that setup and was warm on the lift ride up, which is normally where you freeze to death. Helly as a company originally strated out making rain gear for North Sea fisherman and oil platform workers.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    Re: Warmth question to all you hardcore guys

    Soooo... I ran to Costco at lunch time today. Had to return a few things and figured I'd look around for a few. I found this:

    Kirkland Signature? Black Men's Down Jacket

    $70.00 800ct down... Fits great under my Simms jacket! I'll test it out when it gets really cold and decide if I'll keep it or not.

    Looks good, but probably has zero water protection. Minute it rains it will get saturated. For 70 bucks, hey, it is better to look good, than to feel good.

    It's definitely not water resistant but I suppose I can use my SIMMS Gortex shell over it and it should be good to go.

    I'm still curious about the Jacket Simms has though.

    Re: Warmth question to all you hardcore guys

    I have to agree with CTobias, Layering is everything. wearing a polypropylene or silk top and bottoms as long underwear and polypropylene or silk sock liners ,then using Redington fleece pants over poly pro bottoms and for the top I layer over poly pro shirt with a micro fleece shirt followed by a polarfleece pull over 1/4 zip ,then i layer that with a Simms Guide Double Polar Micro Fleece Windstopper jacket over that goes a Pacific Fly rain jacket. I wear Hodgeman Lakestream thinsulate lug soled waders for temps below 40 degrees, above that i wear breathable Redington Sonic Pro Zip waders. this is for fishing.
    When I am outside taking photos or hiking or hunting I wear the best...Cabela's Hunting clothing. I have two types one for the stand hunting or stationary the other is for when i am stalking or still hunting.
    I hunt Maine, and Montana temps can get down to the Negatives in Rangeley or up in Mooshead or the Allagash areas as well as out west, You need clothing that performs under real conditions.
    Sorry but Simms and Patagonia are nice..... But Hunters and Trappers see far more bad weather in a season than most anglers ever see.
    DC...if i may direct you in a better direction ....do check out Cabela's as well as Duluth Trading Co. they make some really good work wear for cold weather that is also very nice to be seen in as well as performs.
    For my money Cabela's kicks the crap out of others

    Why not get a Filson Tin Jacket?

    I have the simms bulkely and love it. Primaloft one, and gore Tex, can it get any better? Size wise, get the same as your wading jacket. My G4 that I have previously layered up under is an xl, and so is the bulkley, fits perfect.

    I would avoid the Patagonia down jacket. If it gets wet you lose all the insulation the down provides when dry.

    Go with simms, you won't regret it.

    My concern is... Is PrimaLoft warm? What type of conditions have you used it in and did it keep you warm?

    I like the primaloft, it seems to have a self regulating quality similar to wool, in other words its comfortable over a broader temp range, and not bulky. I'm a big fan of wool for layering and outerwear. Merino wool base layer Simms windstopper fleece and guide jacket do it for me 90% of the time plus the Simms winstopper looks good as a casual jacket for on the town
