Default Would this jacket go nice with these pants?

Hey, I'm trying to figure out what jacket would go best with the Special Blend Commander in Brent Plaid.


Do you think this jacket would go nice with it?


Thanks a ton guys. If you think the jacket won't go nice. Which one do you think would?

Btw the jacket is the 686 Times NB 580 Plaid 3-Ply Jacket.

Thanks,
Josh

Between the 686 one above and the sessions Bozung, which would you choose. I'm trying to decide if I want all that insulation. The 686 has better waterproof/breathable rating.


Sessions Bozung Insulated Jacket - Men's from Backcountry.com

Thanks.

I'm biased as I own two 686's, but you really can't go wrong

which do you like better?

why are so many of you so obsessed with how you look and if your gear matches? i have never seen so many girls worried about what they look like on the hill.

function before fashion any veteran will tell ya.

venting.

Function criteria has been met. Next up fashion. The argument can be made, why don't you bums care more about how you look.. your uglying the place up and bringing residual value down... get a job you hippies

But seriously, its been said a thousand times - to each his own. Some care, some don't ... whatevz yo

I definitely care about function more then fashion. The question is, is the higher waterproof\ breathable rating of the 686 worth more then the 180g insulation of the Sessions Bozung or vice versa.

The 686 and the Bozung pretty much cost the same. The question between the two are: What looks better with the pants. And, is 180g Insulation too much?

Also, does anyone have this jacket that can attest to it's value and warmth?

I was also worried that too much plaid might be too much. Color wise, do they conflict?

Thanks guys. I'll try not and waste any more of your time.

Im pretty sure none of those go well together. It is unlikely that different companies use the same zipper to bind the pants to the jacket

I like the white jacket looks hood I think. The only thing that really matters is if you really like it as you will be wearing it.
