What jacket(s) are you wearing at the moment?

I misunderstood the gist of this thread. Now that i understand that it means one should post a selfy EVERY day of oneself in the same jacket (or two at most) and with a local weather forecast and description of what one is up to, best i get selfying. Of course, bring England, i’ll be reporting rain EVERY day :p

Warmer again here. Went for a wander into town and got away with only an A-2 and jumper again. Feels like spring which of course inside the Arctic Circle it isn't. Another couple of days and it'll no doubt drop into the minus and I'll be shovelling snow again.

Come on Dave what you on about boi, there be no bloody rain here today ya daft bugga (can't insert a little winky face there for some reason so don't bite me bloody head orf!)

Lovely sunny but chilly day here at the arse end of beyond, just the weather to impress the one person I met walking her dog along the deserted Norfolk lanes. I clearly saw the wonderment in her eyes at the vision I presented togged up in the ELC B-15 and A-10 gloves while the little Hurricane engine in the 43 Jeep whisked me past at an eye watering 25mph. Next time I'll make sure not to forget to wear some trousers, socks and boots too.....

Jeep looks way more green and shiny than it is in what I like to call real life.

A BR Deck Jacket in 42, with an old tired Cold War warrior beside me at closed Luftwaffe Air Base Fürstenfeldbruck in Bavaria. USAFE SKYBLAZERS might have formed here. The failed hostage liberation in conjunction with the 1972 Olympic Games terror act took place at this very spot and prompted the establishment of GSG 9.

I was in Tromso (350 miles inside Arctic circle) from Weds to Sat , went to see snow (it's been like late Spring in London UK since Xmas) hoping for Arctic weather as when I was there about 7 or 8 years back but found it much like UK... went dog sledding Fri nite, time before when I did it it was -28C, this time was 2 above freezing, luckily dry as it started to rain on coach back to Tromso , didn't take any flying stuff just a down puffer jacket but hardly needed it, would have been fine in an A2 and jumper... global warming indeed !

It's been a very mild winter in Northern Norway. I'm in Nordland county so south of where you were but still inside the Arctic Circle and it's been remarkably mild. Saying that it'll probably drop like a stone and snow non stop up until May!

Might just be the photo, but you bear an uncanny resemblance to Richard E Grant!
