I live in N. MN and wear two $20 windbreakers.
It's as much as for the wind. It blows here more than any place in the world. I go out in the rain. No fancy indoor northern Minnesota pansy indoor training for me. Can't stand being cold or wet and cold. Not that anyone likes that. I dress like Charlie Brown or that kid in the Christmas movie and I don't apologize to anyone for it and I'll use it (the jacket) for twenty more years.
Some winter day when you fall into a big snow drift you be crying out. "If only I had dressed like bags did I would have lived but alas I must say goodbye cruel world I pass on to thx big cross country field in the sky knowing ole Ricky don was right ....again.
You won't need that jacket Friday when it's 85 there!
Freaky. Cold warm. Really swinging back and forth.
$45 to fix the zipper if it can b done. Double what I expected.
