I still doubt her clothes will be changing in the game. Even if there will be snowy areas or warm jungles. Karl said she is desperate to survive and it's the only thing she's trying to focus on. I don't see her changing her clothes and thinking "Ooooh, there will be -20 degrees on the mountain I have to put the warm jacket on. I might be dead in the next few minutes but I want to look perfect in the moment of my terrible death"....

Putting a jacket on in -20 degrees isn't fashion, it's reality.

Yeah, she'll be injured as hell, scared and aiming for escaping the island but at least she'll not be freezing.

Well exactly. Plus, where would she get the clothes anyhoo. Is there a Primark on the strange mysterious island? Although I read a long while back about a possible jacket she finds? Could be wrong. Her appearance will change as she adds equipment, her clothes get dirty, are ripped, get wet, I believe that's as far as it goes in the main game.

but then...unlockables are fun extras that you can play after you've finished the main game, I guess.

But putting on a jacket (which may happen to be conveniently at a base camp) is only aiding to her survival and escape.

You can't survive when you're not surviving, and choosing not to wear an available jacket in -20 degrees temperatures is choosing not to survive.

OK.

But then again, if I remember well, they also said that weather will affect her performance, right? If she had the jacket or shorts I think it would help her instead of affect her. Then it would not be about surviving but about having comfort in a bad situation.

In which case they have thrown out realism or practicality in favor of emotionalism and conveying a message.

Lara can still look and be cold in the environment while wearing a jacket (which just increases her chances of survival and may not be a super warm or super comfy jacket).
