Hello Friends at Forum:
We'll be moving to Fargo in the month of February Next Year. Which Parka/Warm Jacket we should buy and from where? I need to buy one for me,one for my wife and one for our daughter who will be around 21 months by then. Canada Goose looks very expensive.
Any other option we have? Hope to hear you soon
Thanks a lot

Fargo has a Burlington Coat Factory....not sure if they are online. Lots of ppl like columbia, or north face.
Many ppl suggest layering, a hoodie, under a warm coat. important are warm gloves, beanies, mittens for the baby, knit hat w/ ear flaps for baby. Snow suits for babys are a good thing, and lil snow boots. You should be able to find these items online at a major chain, cabelas, many folks shop walmart, especially for kids. If you are buying in person, a good trick is to blow air through the sleeve....if you can feel the air, it won't block the wind, so keep looking.
I think coats that are long enough to cover your backside are better than a jacket that just covers to your waist. Scarves to wrap around your throat are helpful too. The good news, usually by Feb. we are on the downhill side of winter. There will be tons of winter coats etc on sale here. Good luck on your move!

The best thing you can do in the cold is to wear layers. Good thick t-shirt, shirt, sweater, a couple of hoodies and a wind proof jacket and you are good to about -30. Of course you need to take care of hands, feet and head. Most of your body heat is lost from your head.

If you want something more dressy so you can go to work at the office, or go out for the evening, Carhart, Columbia, Walls, North Face, all have nicer winter jacket/coats that do a pretty good job, but most of those are for temporary cold. House to car, car to restaurant type of temporary. If you get stuck out in the cold and are going to be there a while, layers is the only way to go.

Remember, the true definition of a sweater. A sweater is something a child puts on when momma is cold.
