Pants/Jacket
 
So I was looking to get a jacket and pair of pants for this winter. What I really wanted to get was a ak 2L stagger jacket/pant but really don't want to spend $750 on 2 things that I wear for 3 months.

Could anyone point me in the general direction of what are some of the better brands or specific items that arent THAT expensive. I wouldn't mind spending a few hundred or so, but can't justify that much for those 2 times.

Any help is appreciated, thanks :thumbsup:

ill give third thumbs up to 686 .. also I really like bonfires line this year .. they have all types of cuts and prices ranging from 99 - 249 on pants and 129-300ish on jackets

Thanks for the fast replies :)

So I was checking out some 686 stuff like you guys recommended and saw a few things. Jacket wise I was looking at this, still pretty expensive but not AS bad
686 Plexus Pinnacle 3-Ply Jacket - Men's from Dogfunk.com

For pants I was looking at these:
686 Smarty Complete 2.5-Ply Pant - Men's from Dogfunk.com
and
686 Smarty Original Cargo Pant - Men's from Dogfunk.com

Is the only difference in the pants the material and ratings? And one has ghetto slits, one doesn't. Not sure how big of a difference they would make.

686, Foursquare, Special Blend, Analog... All makes nice jackets/pants. Some how i picked up 5 jackets from sierra, because they were so cheap! Anything above 15k waterproof rating is good enough. The average price for my 5 jackets were $65 each, they are all at least 15k waterproof rated...
