What should I look for in a winter coat?
Look for a coat with a windproof, waterproof shell, and a fleece lining and an inner light jacket zipped in. Look for ones that have fleece lined hoods and can cover up your neck if needed. Also if it covers your butt it is a lot warmer than a short coat.
How do you tell if a coat is warm?
With all the new technology in clothing, weight rarely is an indicator of warmth. Warm coats can be incredibly light these days. Often they will say what weather they are suited for if you go to a site like LLBean or Columbia. If you can, go to a store that carries that coat and stick your arm in it. That’s what I do.
What happens if a winter coat doesn鈥檛 fit right?
If the coat isn鈥檛 the right fit, it won鈥檛 perform at its full potential and you may end up having to break down and buy another one that does fit right and properly keeps you warm. Keep in mind that when you鈥檙e trying on a winter coat, it鈥檚 best to try it on with a thick sweater, hoodie or jacket underneath.
