This Jacket from Outdoor Research is a great piece in cold, windy and wet conditions. The waterproof breathable jacket is fully taped and is perfect for shedding snow and keeping water out. It also has a hood big enough to accommodate a helmet and an interior fleece lining which keeps you warm and cozy during aerobic activities in the backcountry or in the city.

This is the first piece of layering I put in my pack when I'm ready to head out. I wear it on cooler days whether it's sunny, snowing or drizzling. I never had an issue with it so far but the one thing I will say is that the hood falls over my eyes whenever I'm not wearing a helmet. I have used it for mountaineering, hiking and ice climbing.
I'm 6 feet tall, 160 lbs. and the arm length and body length is perfect. The body is big on me but it gives me room to layer and to twist around with all those layers on. I find it well worth the price, plus you can probably do some browsing and find it for sale online.
