Coats to stay warm…

I don't know why but I'm still freezing. I have a fleece-lined hoodie, a peacoat, and a North Face Denali jacket and I'm still cold. I can't layer the jackets because the arms won't fit.

I think I have heard down coats are supposed to keep you warmer

I have a goosedown coat by Forecaster of Boston that has gotten me through many years of single digits and below. It' lightweight and goes down to almost my ankles. Don't know if they make them anymore. I got mine at Von Maur. If I should ever need to replace it, I would check out Land's End, and go for those rated for sub-zero temps. As a California native, I'm a wimp with these Midwest winters.

Fleece isn't going to keep you warm and a peacoat is more for fall, not cold winter weather. You need goose down.

Two of the warmest jackets are L.L.Bean's Baxter State Parka and some by Eddie Bauer rated for Very cold. Depending upon where you live you might not need go to this extreme but definitely at least something that is down, whether duck or goose.

and try a vest in addition to a coat.


another suggestion (may or may not apply): move! gets your blood circulation and makes you a bit warmer.

Longer coat, preferably down, hat/gloves/scarf. Hoodie/pea coat are for fall. Denali is fine if you are wearing winter gear with it. Depending on your budget - start with low end stores such as TJ Max and work your way up to good ol' LL Bean.

Make sure you are layering underneath your coat too, goose down is definitely the best for warmth and make sure you wear a hat, more heat escapes from your head than you realise.

The only thing that is really warm is down. And not a jacket - a long coat. The longer the better. Personally, I think the warmest coats are the Eddie Bauer long down coats that are rated for the coldest weather (they rate their coats according to how warm they are). I also like Landsend coats, but I don't think their warmest are quite as warm as Eddie Bauer's warmest, and the quality seems lower. More expensive brands don't see to be any warmer, and many aren't warm at all. In any case, a really warm coat probably isn't going to be beautiful - my favorite EB coat looked like a giant sleeping bag, but I wore it in -30 and felt just fine.

For extra warmth in any coat, you can add a "base layer." It's a simple long sleeved T-shirt that has insulation inside. I have one from Nike - just a black long sleeve T with fuzzy stuff inside and shiny outside - that keeps me super warm, almost too warm, no matter what.

I love the weather here, all I have needed for many years is a leather jacket, and a raincoat.

Maybe it is the weather too cold, just put on your coat to keep your arm warm. Or you can use a hot fan to keep you warm.
