Re: Winter/Outdoor jackets Shops

If you are close to an Otto's Sport Outlet, have a look. Sometimes they have some great products at great prices. Link of the Outlet addresses.

Curve ball incoming....

Next, Debenhams, House of Fraser, Monsoon and M&S all deliver to Switzerland. Even George at Asda are looking to add Switzerland to their existing International delivery list of countries.

I stocked up in the sales last month with a CHF140 order from Debenhams for 8 tops, and went to Asda in the UK 2 weeks ago for my winter jacket (£30) and new trousers (£3) in the sale.

Re: Winter/Outdoor jackets Shops

You could try Migros Outlet, Herdern but maybe it is too early for Winter stuff.

Re: Winter/Outdoor jackets Shops

Volketswil has an outlet for sporting goods like this.
Good turnover of stock for both summer and winter sports.
If you cannot find what you are looking for, then check out the Bachli store just in front of it.
They have an outlet section on the 1st floor

No, they aren't - I look in all three fairly regularly, and I can state with some confidence that Transa is significantly more expensive.

Transa undoubtably has better quality stuff, but it is not "affordable" in the meaning of anyone who is actually asking that question.

I would recommend SportXX or Ochsner, if you want proper outdoor stuff. Also, if by "affordable" you mean "cheap but OK", then keep an eye on Lidl and Aldi - particularly for the kids who will outgrow / trash it way before it wears out.
How will i be able to know the whether jacket would work in swiss winters? I checked out jackets at LIDL but they were not very thick.

What you need for a 'Swiss Winter' is highly dependent on where you live, work, and play, and what you like to/need to do. And on how acclimated you are to cold weather.

Winters here, left side of the Zürichsee ca 800m, are quite mild and seem to be getting milder all the time.

For instance, I am outside most of the day, walking the dogs mostly between 600-1000m. Most of the winter I make do with a flannel shirt and an unlined shell jacket, no need even for a fleece. When I dress up to go into Zürich city, I wear an uninsulated coat as well.

When I go up into the mountains for an afternoon I just add a fleece or, if an extremely cold day, a thermal layer. I find a heavy insulated jacket far too restrictive for even mildly active winter activities.

Wet weather protection is far more important than cold, given where I live, where I tend to go, what I tend to do. One of those funny brimmed Swiss hats, waterproof rain gear and I'm good to go.

The down jackets and heavy winter clothing I brought with me thinking the Zürichsee area would be cold were given away long ago, completely unnecessary here.

If I lived in colder areas I might dress differently. Or if I were coming from a climate where I were not used to cold(ish) weather.

If you are new to Switzerland, perhaps it's most sensible to go with layers until you see how you adjust to winter in your area. You can always add more layers if you are cold, but there is little you can do if you feel overheated in a big insulated coat.

Just my 5Rp.

Zalando has a resonable choice

Second Hand Shops for Kids clothing are also brilliant.

Cheap? Yes. OK for general winter use? Yes. Functional for actual winter sports use? No, mostly not.
