kill two birds, make sure your jacket is 100 % waterproof. Polar fleece works good as an under layer or for a light jacket on cool days. I have a frog toggs no liner jacket. A dickies waterproof medium ( a bit lower than waste length) jacket. and a Cabelas Dry plus waterproof thigh length parka. as well as various wool vests hats gloves etc.
I have never once said, "wow" I just have too many warm cloths in the truck. Always better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
I wouldnt buy the one you have pictured, $80 for a cheap crap paper thin polyester coat ? That isnt warm or dry, It is just a style thing. You can find a lot more durable, warmer, lighter weight and rain proof clothing than that. Go to Cabelas and get some real out door clothing.
