There are a lot of online clothing stores on the Internet and you can find there a large selection of winter cycling clothes but they're always so epxensive.

Aerotech has a decent winter jacket for $50 right now? Of course I bought it earlier in the year when it was $100.

Looking for a recommendation for a jacket, preferably down, that comes with a 2 way zipper. Shouldn't be cycling specific because those tend to be cheaper. I like to keep my chest warm and a 2 way zip would help with that.

Why not cotton for middle layers? I have a wool shirt then another base layer shirt with long sleeves with thumb loops over that. Four cotton T shirts and a sweat shirt one top of that, then a jacket. Cotton not touching the skin seems to work, though I keep my rides under an hour or so, so not trying to absorb sweat by the gallon.

I liked it enough that I bought a second one for the $50 sale price.

Any opinions from anyone who has or knows of someone who has some of these types of winter cycling clothes?
I ride through Minnesota winters, riding in temps down to -30F. I have some 'brands' I go to:

45NRTH - Minneapolis-based company that focused purely on winter biking
Pearl Izumi - I got started with PI winter gear buy getting some stuff on deep discount and I had little faith - that first pair of winter tights are still mix after 6-8 years of riding through the worst possible conditions.
SmartWool (and Merino wool in general)
Snowboard stuff - I was involved in snowboarding as coach/competitor/parent for many years and have a bunch of stuff for winter.

This was my gear for a 90-minute -28F ride, nearly everything you see fits one of the above:
