      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

wamest jacket on earth

Recommended Posts

Hi There: I`m just looking for the warmest jacket - my use is "sitting around" not climbing or walking.

I already bought the CG snow mantra but I`m cold in it after a while - sorry.

So is there any jacket which is warmer ? 

Thanks for your kind help!

Best 
Peter

maybe you need puffy pants and not a warmer jacket?  no idea what a cg snow mantra jacket is though.  But if you really need a warmer puffy, look at either Feathered freinds jackets  or just keep moving.   Best to always keep moving.

And a pair of these would round up to the price of the CG snow mantra.

So feathered friends is also what I thought - the rock and ice is great but I need one where the hoodie is removable, which is almost warm like the r&i

Jason - do you know where I can buy an Icefall parka in M - FF has no one available 

I think they have a large in stock. 

The best idea though is to go to their down town store and see what they got.  at least try them on and talk to the employees there.   Every time I have been in there, the employees are very knowledgeable and will direct you to the jacket you need.   Maybe the icefall is not the best jacket for you and your needs.

Also, not sure what you need a big ass jacket for, but maybe you only need to rent such a jacket?  FF rents big expedition jackets, I think.  worth asking if that is a good option for you.\

I was just thinking that I was amazed no one had said this yet in this thread, but of course...  A tip of the cap to you guv'nor.

This is why I miss cc.com.  I need to visit more often.   And to keep it on topic.  I have 20 year old FF down jacket that serves me well to this day.  Winters at my house are windy and cold (-10 with + windchill occasionally)  That jacket was worth every penny
