Hi Guys,

I have just moved the Poland and my Indian jackets doesn't seem to work in this weather, I want to buy proper clothes for Winter, would love you suggestion.

I know now that I will have to buy clothes for layering. I am thinking to buy some thin down jacket to wear inside and then some ski jacket to wear outside but there are so many brands and so many options not sure what to look for. can you suggest me some good brands for following things, I hope I can buy eveything around 600.

1. good down jacket which I can wear inside
2. Good outer jacket, which resist rain as well
3. Good boots which resist rain
4. some warn under garments

Please suggest me some brands and if you like you can send me link from allegro. :)

Your best bet is to go to the nearest Decathlon and look there for what you need. You should be able to pick up everything there - don't worry about brands, just look at what it can do and if it's comfortable to wear.

Having said that, you won't get all that for 600PLN. A reasonable pair of boots alone will cost you at least 200.

Sorry, I forgot to post a link -

Go Sport often have interesting items too, though the quality can be hit or miss -

Either way, you'll get everything you need from one of those two shops.

Testuser, don't spend too much money on winter clothes as there's really only a few weeks of it left. It's just not worth paying for a down jacket at this point. About eight weeks from now the temp will be getting up towards 20 degrees. Probably still a bit chilly if you're from India though! But yes, layering is the way to go. If you're talking 600zł, you will struggle to get all the items you mention at that price in any kind of good quality. I would ditch the jacket plans and go for the best shoes you can afford. Then save up for the jacket for next winter if you're planning to stay that long and get a good one. In the meantime get yourself a few layers of things that you can discard as the weather gets warmer and pile back on when it's chilly.

As for where to buy, if you're on a tight budget it's always worth trying the Targowisko/Bazar outdoor market places. The quality of a lot of their stuff is just as good as the cheaper clothes shops and if you only want to wear it for a single season it should be fine. There's also the hipermarkets like Auchan and Carrefour for cheapish jackets. Their quality is very variable, some of their stuff is really raggy and rubbishy but some is ok. You can always try TK Maxx. You often get end of the line good quality stuff being sold off cheaply there and finally the Dutch chain store C&A. Reasonable quality, reasonable prices, and always a few bargains. Good luck and happy shopping!

If we're talking about decathlon I've got those boots:
They're ok, although very warm.
If jacket is in question, I don't have anything from decathlon, but this:
looks half decent. Polar (fleece) jacket below and you're all set.

I'll stick with that for now, as Atch said, winter is basically done.
