    Jacket weather in Dallas, at least for the weekend, although back up close to 90 degrees by the end of next week. Same weather system that produced near blizzard conditions yesterday in Wyoming, Montana, the Dakotas, etc. That is to say weather conditions for my weekend similar to usual conditions in Scotland in July. :D I was able to run my German shepherd dog with my mountain bike wearing a Filson waxed trucker jacket/hat combo but not pleasant riding up a slight uphill grade with a rainy, 20 knot headwind. :frusty:

    Well I might head to the local hangar dance out here in Dallas and take advantage of this jacket idea.

    Breton, the NW encompasses a huge area. Near which major city do you live?

    Fanch, I'm in the Seattle area. In truth, we had an absolutely beautiful summer, but it's definitely jacket season again.

    Hey Fanch ole Bean.... enjoy the weather. You could wear a different jacket/hide every day and have plenty left over. But what I'd love to know is.... which one is your fave, your "go to" jacket of choice?

    It's been great! Yesterday in Oklahoma, I dug out the heavy wool Filson JacShirt. It had a fuel receipt in one of the pockets, dated from last March.

    Sometimes it seems that our four seasons in Texas are December, January, February, and Summer. :D
