guess the clarifying question is, what price point are you looking at. 

 

You can certainly spend $600+ on a jacket from Arc'teryx and have an awesome jacket (yes i have severe jacket envy there).  But if you have a different price point maybe you are looking more at The North Face or Columbia or some of the lower price point brands.  I echo that note above on several brands that range in price pretty widely,  I have seveal pieces from Marmot/Patagonia/TNF and have liked them all, but at the lower price points you usually pay a weight penalty. 

 

Finally to me the issue is fit.  I have found wide variance between brands and sometimes w/in brands, esp. for jackets.  Nothing can replace trying on the jacket and getting a feel for space across the shoulders, how the zips are to pull with one hand and gloves, and how long the sleeves are.  Price point and name matter not when the jacket is just fundamentally right for your frame/style.
