Question is the title, by winter I mean real winter where temperature can reach -20C?

Thanks in advance.

Pretty much this. It's allright down to like -5C if you have some warm layers underneath, but for anything colder you need something heavier.

I got one a few weeks ago, and it is pretty lightweight/thin, but it's got lots of room for layering which is what im prolly gonna do if it gets too cold. Its perfect for atm though, when its just a bit chilly.

Yeah that's kinda what I was guessing too. But what about the Penfield Rockford jacket? I had a couple looks at it online and it mos def looks more winterized to me, but I haven't been able to see it in person so its really difficult to tell, also how does the Rockford jacket fit mainly length wise compared to the Penfield Vassan?

What do you guys think about the Tweed Kasson? Is it warmer than the regular Kasson?
