    Memes you’re paying the money for. You either want actual camping/hiking brands like Outdoor Research or even milsurp. It’s not that those brands aren’t good, it’s simply overpriced and you can get way better bang for your buck elsewhere.

    What you need is dictated by activity and environment. You can get away with a lot and any brand will do for a day or weekend hike. It’s when you’re out for several days, weeks or months. Or mountaineering/mountain climbing etc. you want to optimize performance of your clothes and be more specific in your choice. It need to protect you from the elements while being light weight, be warm, breathable and dry fast.

    Learn the basic layering principles. Base layer closest to skin, mid layer for extra warmth and shell to keep out rain and wind.

      this.
      Eg. I do some light mountain hiking, not climbing, but in all seasons including cold winters and wet autumns. Hanwag for my hiking boots is good.
      Another one for cold winters is Woolpower. Their thicker products especially.

      Actually, this. I only have outer layers and gear from military surplus stores, but those are all perfect. Sometimes I look up the maker and buy from them directly (or from another brand using the same factory) if the surplus store doesn’t have my size.

    OP, is purple mountain observatory a good brand? Never heard of them, but those jackets look good.
    Searching for a winter jacket but everywhere I look it’s either ugly stuff, overpriced stuff or ugly and overpriced stuff.

    I got the Nike ACG hood. It’s decent quality. nice detail is the kangaroo pocket has zippers. Only criticism is the hood is a bit too big.

    The most important thing is that you buy an actual temperature rated jacket. I’m assumimg you’re talking about winter camping, you’re gonna need to throw down whatever it costs to get something that’s rated for the climate you’re staying in, don’t skimp on it, you’ll regret it. I have some canadian slop, it works
