: Does anyone know how warm the Wested Indiana Jones jacket is? I am considering ordering the Last Crusade jacket. I live in Minneapolis, and it gets pretty damn cold in the winter. Also, is it really as durable and tough as everyone says it is?
Ah, a good question. I've had my Wested since May and been mostly in tropical/rainy situations with it - Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Hong Kong, Bali, Singapore... Believe me, it's a tough jacket. But fall has arrived here on the Korean peninsula and it won't be long 'til the Siberian Express comes plowing down. I'll get a true picture of it's abilities then. You have to remember, though, that it's a light jacket. I lived just south of Minneapolis for nine years and I can tell you that even with a fully-fleeced bomber jacket, you'd still need to wear polypro long underwear on a minus five day. Remember when Indy was in Nepal with the jacket zipped up and wearing gloves? You get the picture!
