Ok, I've seen a lot of clothing/jacket posts recently. Just wanted to get an idea of which brand of jacket people are using the most: Columbia, The North Face, LL Bean, Land's End, Eddie Bauer??? Water proof or water resistant? And is there a less expensive place to buy one of these jackets rather than direct from the store website?
Thanks in advance!!
I vote for Columbia. Last year I got both myself and my husband Columbia jackets and they were a "god-send"! They are unlined, waterproof, wind-resistent, breatheable and were very affordable as I found them on sale at our local GI Joes. We just wore our warm fleecy-type jackets under them and kept dry and toasty warm! Many times we were the only ones out walking on the promenade deck and also up on the "sun" deck.
