My Truwest parka's zipper bit the dust yesterday coming home from Avalon. So I'm in the market for a new parka. I've heard nothing but good things about surf-fur, but I'm unsure about the buttons vs a zipper. And the water proof capacity of the buttons. I will be wearing it coming into the afternoon wind chop, and being completely waterproof is a must.
Both the Truwest and surf-fur are similar in price, and both made in the USA.
Any recommendations I should know about?
