Outdoor Research Chaos Jacket - Men'sis rated4.75out of5by4.
Rated5out of5byfromWarm and dry!I had picked out a Marmot jacket for my husband for Christmas - as he is always saying he is going to die from the cold. He didn't feel it was warm enough and returned it for this one. He loves this OR jacket! He has walked the dog in freezing temps with only a t-shirt underneath. It seems to be as warm as down, but still provides great protection from the wind and rain/sleet.

Rated5out of5byfromWARM JacketThis is a great jacket for the cold. It's sized so you can throw it on over your other layes, shell, etc. and keep warm. I've worn it teaching classes in -5 degree weather where I haven't been moving and its keep me toasty warm. The Gore Windstopper shell sheds light snow and blocks the wind.

Rated4out of5byfromAwesome wet weather insulationThis jacket is great because it adds the one thing all other synthetic insulated layers are missing - GORE! It's basically water-proof, seems like everyone else is wetting out and my Chaos is still totally dry. Big burly cut fits over everything else you've got on.
