Will this shell be sufficient for winter...
Will this shell be sufficient for winter weather over my Patagonia down sweater? (As far as being resistant to damp winds and blowing snow?) I need something substantial and not too flimsy, but I'm concerned that this does not have a storm flap.
Well, it's not going to add a huge amount of warmth, but it's wind and waterproof, and has a Polyurethane treated zipper to block water, and has a zipper flap behind, to block any wind that sneaks though. If you're just going to wear it for daily use, and not mountaineering or anything like that, it should be totally fine.
Thanks, James. LOL - no moutaineering here... just lots of dog-walking & trail hiking in wet/cold unpredictable, winter weather. More concerned with staying dry, as I will have warm layers underneath. Didn't realize there was a storm flap *under* the zipper. Sounds like it should work fine.
