Почему "есть" не могу добавить. "У меня есть тёплая куртка и тёплый свитер." Я только так и говорю. Why I cannot add "есть"? "У меня есть тёплая куртка и тёплый свитер." Russians speak in this way, infa 100%.

Report it.

Anyway, while you are right when saying that 'есть' is a very suitable part of the sentence here, I suppose you are not so right when saying you only say it with 'есть'.

This sentence without 'есть' is also valid. It will be preferable as the answer to a question like, "На улице мороз, как ты не мёрзнешь?" - "У меня тёплая куртка и тёплый свитер"

The version with 'есть' will sound clumsy here, don't you think so?
