Default Aperture a good brand?

I got an aperture 10k waterproof jacket in varsity style in blue and grey.

The other one I got was dc's forte alloy khaki 2013 jacket.
The d'c is 5k water proof! Thanks guys
I know dc's better of course but do they both do the same

You can do much better than aperture and better than DC. If you're on a budget buy NOS that's a season or 2 old. Outerwear doesn't have an expiration date unless it's an odd color or style. Personally I'd look for something that's 15k minimum.

Really? I though DC was good. I thought 180 for a jacket was too much then I got a god deal on the forte dc. For 115 then found this jacket for 60$

Sometimes you get what you pay for and sometimes you get to pay for marketing. If you're trying to save money look at clearence items: evo, utah skis, dept of goods etc

The only thing that matters is the tech in the jacket in question. Most brands make high and low end jackets. I like DC style but I wouldn't necessarily count on it for functionality - they are certainly not a contender in the outerwear arena.

Deals are deals and if you use the product... who cares?

In CO, you can practically wear cotton because the snow and air is so dry, but I know on the coasts you are basically riding through fog and spit....
