$900!!*!@&$@^@% Dollars For a PARKA!!!?!?!?!?!?
Mine is almost 10 years old. Paid $650 for it. Worth every penny. First time I've ever had a coat that actually kept me warm and didn't fall apart after only two years.
BTW, loved your reaction!
i have a Columbia jacket i got about 10 years ago that still looks like its new...i use it to when i use the snow blower now...it was about $150...my current winter jacket is going on it's 3rd winter...still looks new...$60 at Costco.
back in my late teens, i had a nice jacket...it was a really nice Descente ski jacket...paid $800 for it...had it two years before someone stole it...same thing happened to some nice sun glasses i used to own...never again.--
