warm , comfortable even when wet, DPM
Although not particularly waterproof this coat belongs to this category because it is designed to be warm even when soaked. I have had one since '96 and can testiify that this is the case even when absolutely sodden after an unscheduled dip in a lake
This is my coat of choice for winter nature photography , as it covers your body down to your thighs and is very quiet to stalk in. Lots of pockets for oddments and an optional face scrim complete a truly excellent bit of kit
available from several army surplus outlets I got mine from surplus and adventure
