    I wear a horsehide jacket, layering it with flannel shirts and/or hoodies. I also have a buffalo leather vest, which I wear over a hoodie or a wool sweater. But, here in Florida, it only gets cold enough 1-2 weeks out out of the year.

    Without getting into a political debate, it's been an especially warm year here so far, with near record high temperatures expected today and tomorrow. It's been getting warmer and warmer every year, and now we've been having temperatures 20 degrees above normal. Thanksgiving is already next week, and I've barely even worn any jackets this year so far. We used to always have at least a foot of snow on the ground around Thanksgiving.

    Unfortunately, no zip out liner. Although these coats by Cooper are no longer made, if you're interested check Pop's Leather: http://www.popsleather.com/prod_v2.php3?prod=126

    Pricy, but from what I've heard well worth it ... and they have a zip out Thinsulate liner as an option.

    Yeah, got an A2 from my father when he passed away --- wore it for a while, but my son has since claimed it.

    Schott makes a great leather coat, too ... you can never have too much leather!

    Without a doubt, my go-to jacket is my Arc'teryx LEAF Atom LT Hoody. It's perferct for the weather in the Pacific North West. The DWR sheds rain away, it's plenty warm for the fall, spring, and winter. When it get's colder, it can be worn as a mid-layer. It can be compressed down for easy storage in a pack. In fact, I liked this jacket so much that I purchased a second without the hoody and bought a non-LEAF version for my wife (which is identical except the non-LEAF has a contrasting logo, where the LEAF logo is subdued). My wife originally didn't like the jacket, saying it wasn't fashionable. It's now become her go-to jacket as well!

    Umm, dunno about perfect - but today, while visiting New Orleans, it's a "Lost Worlds' Speed Demon (horsehide)."

    Seems like a lot of you gravitate toward leather... I've never been a big fan of the leather jacket unless it's a motorcycle jacket. But I don't ride.

    Properly cared for, a quality leather coat/jacket only gets better with age and can be handed down from one generation to the next.
