Rock/Creek men's jackets and winter clothing can put you outdoors when everyone else is staying home. Your jacket is an important component in your layering system and because there are stellar jackets for every situation, let us give you a little direction. When you find yourself braving the outdoors in sub-zero temperatures, we suggest a hardy insulation layer or two. Start with a 100 or 200 weight fleece jacket, vest, merino midweight top or even Patagonia Nano Puff Pullover. Next layer a down or synthetic jacket, like the Mountain Hardwear Compressor or Marmot's Ama Dablam. If you find yourself battling more than just the temperature, you will need a shell layer. Soft shell jackets are perfect for high-octane, active adventures where a highly breathable, water resistant barrier is called for. However if the weather turns nasty, you may need a full-fledged rain jacket with Gore Tex, H2No, PreCip, Conduit, HyVent, Membrain, Omi-Tech to keep you dry.
