I need something North Facey, no more than $250 or so. Needs to last 5 years minimum and be comfortable for temps from 20*-50* Rain/wind resistant and something that blood will wash of easily enough. Needs to be nice enough I can wear it to any event that doesn't require a suit, yet sturdy enough I can wear it out camping or doing chores.

From what I understand North Face is going down hill in quality. My last jacket was a Lowe Alpine and it gave me 5 solid years of abuse yet I needed to layer if it got below 40 or so.

L.L. Bean.

Not that they have what you want.

But, they will have the closest that you want in this century.

I miss my Willis & Geiger jackets. But, such is progress.

Barbour Beaufort waxed cotton.
Expensive, but a lifetime investment.
Have owned one for more than twenty years.
Live south of the Mason-Dixon Line.
Wore mine last night...27 degrees..
Wind proof...water proof.
You can buy zip in liners if you wish.

OP needs to grow balls and wear a sweatshirt.

Honestly my Columbia coats never failed me I've had one close to 10 years. I usually don't wear a coat unless its 30 and below 40-50 it's a long sleeve or a sweatshirt

Not sure why someone would want a jacket down south. That's just crazy talk. What next, turtleneck sweaters?
Might as well get a sled while you're at it

Jacket?
Link Posted: 10/25/2013 5:17:20 PM EST
I've had really good luck with Northfaces Apex line. I can wear it over a t shirt when it's in the 50s and also over a sweatshirt when it's 20-30s and be g2g.

I was talked into a patagonia, 120 bucks and you could see through it.
I sent it back. I found a polarfleece at Sams for 20 bucks that was twice the jacket. It had the flap behind the zipper and much warmer.

Get a hooded zip up sweat shirt and some flannel shrts. Wear till they get ratty, throw away and wear new again.

I live in Southern Illinois and only wore a sweatshirt over long sleeve shirt with tee shirt under it all winter....

Agree...grow a pair.

All criteria met, thanks to great clearance prices while they last:

Shell only, but that's really what you want. Wear a fleece or insulated liner under it for the cold.

I really like my Arc'teryx. And they have a decent LE/MIL discount. Tx weather isn't really cold though.

VA is not that same as FL.

Buy a nice rain shell. Then buy various weight fleece jackets. I am wearing a Sierra designs shell (10 years old) with a OD Wal-Mart fleece right now. it's below freezing and it works fine. The all or none winter coat sucks. Layers FTMFW.
Eta: bought shell from Sierra trading post for $70

Leather bomber style or a windbreaker.

Pussy.

That was probably a "down sweater"

It's not really outerwear

Its not dressy but I wear a hooded sweatshirt with the old basic carhartt jacket.
I have never needed more. Take off the jacket if I get too warm. gets real cold, put the hood on.

I'll be down at the capital (Atl) a lot between January and March, I'm not going to be wearing Carhartt or a hooded sweatshirt.
