Winter Coat

Updated on November 30, 2013

Best Winter Coat

Picking the right winter jacket is not always an easy task. One needs to put a lot of factors into consideration to successfully pick a coat that can withstand the cold, long and miserable weather condition that is associated with the winter. A winter coat provides a remedy by keeping us warm as we go about our daily activities. To stay healthy and energetic throughout the winter it is important to pick a winter coat that suits your outdoor needs. Here are some guidance to help you find the perfect winter coat:

Narrow your choices down

While shopping for winter coats a lot of people shop for fashion as well as warmth. It may take a longer time to find a winter coat that is very fashionable and very warm. So, to make your search easier you need to decide which one is paramount. If it warmth then you want to choose a down coat-which is regarded as the warmest winter coat material. Alternatively, you can buy a down puffer with a waterproof exterior for rain and snow.

Choose the right inner fabric

For guaranteed insulation on a wet day choose a wool coat. Wool coats are very durable, hence a smart investment. If you are worried about itching, you should try going with the more expensive boiled wool. The whole fabric doesn't have to be made of wool, having wool on the inside of the coat will give the much-needed warmth.

Choose the right outer fabric

Ask yourself if the activities you take part in need a very durable jacket. If yes, you may want to go for a hard shell coat (I recommend a hard shell coat if you plan on participating in outdoor activities like hiking) . Hard shell coats are ridiculously expensive, but they represent the best waterproof breathing technologies. Choose a rain jacket if you will spend more time walking in the rain.

Try windproof and waterproof-Getting a waterproof and windproof coat provides resistance to water and moisture, and warmth. Check the seams to make sure they are sealed to prevent moisture from entering the garment in any way. Getting a winter coat with wind flaps provides more cover from rushing wind in extreme weather.

Choose the right Fit

This is very essential. Finding the right fit means you simply have to go up one size over your normal suit jacket size. A winter suit that fits well will allow you to move easily without restraints around your shoulders and neck and provides enough space for you to wear a sweater underneath.

Read Reviews

If you are shopping online, make sure to read reviews If you are buying a winter jacket online, make sure you read other people's experiences using the product. Yes, people's experiences may vary, but you are better off taking the most consistent opinion.

As we approach another winter, be excited about a change of season and get the warmest winter coat.
