Thicker clothing does not mean it will keep you warmer.

The content/composition of materials matter. Goose down and duck down makes a difference. Down and acrylic and wool, etc also makes a difference. Doesn't mean you have a thick cotten jacket, it will make you warmer than a thin goose down jacket.
true, but if u buy it in cold countries like china that is very cold, 99% confirm sure warm.

Yea been looking for goose down. Really hard to find. Canadian goose too expensive. Columbia seems to be cheaper.
Maybe Europe is cheaper, can check with other forum thread.

columbia jacket omni-heat series looks good. these have thin metallic coat inside that said to reflect & retain heat. less bulk than goose down

also add merino wool or polartec thermal base layer

if still not enough … add more in-between

I will want something light.
TNF, pantagonia,arcteryx, marmot,etc.
Thermal wear is good choice.
Can grab from online and ship to sg.
yea, mainly is to layer and not wear something super thick

if layer, can use from different weather U30, U20, U10 ... 10 degree

but mainly is scare wind chill, so the outer layer should be rain/wind proof then slowly insulate and end up with a thermal/long john

and also lighten the load
