Is this jacket warm for winter?

Is this jacket warm for winter?

Best Answer Responded on

This is a shell, so on it's own it will not be alll that warm. Like any technical shell, it is designed to be worn with layers - think a fleece, light down parka or other garment. You add layers as things get cold. But, if you want a stand alone winter jacket look for something that has insulation.

Not suitable for cold winter climes. The cold wind will come through this. Mediterranean winters, maybe. Sleek cut with stretch. Not cut well for heavy layers underneath. Fitted mid weight fleece and fitted down sweater vest max. This is primarily a cool weather rain jacket. For cold weather shells, look for 3 layer Goretex or similar. They will likely weigh nearly twice as much as this.
