Winter brings many joys like holiday parties and peppermint lattes, and the right women's winter coat makes the season feel complete. A great coat can keep you warm and flatter your figure. Sometimes the search for this elusive piece of outerwear falls flat, but chin up: there are a lot of great coats that can fulfill your innermost desires. Here are the perks of owning one.
A packable down jacket is a traveler's dream come true. If your personal life involves frequent flyer miles, you know that bulky coats don't cooperate with your carry-on. When your flight is delayed and you're spending hours in the waiting area, carrying a bulky coat around can be frustrating–especially when you're flying solo and have nobody to watch your stuff. But a down coat can fold up into one of their pockets to free your hand. Once it's packed, you can tuck it into your luggage and walk around freely. These are also great for long road trips or train rides where there may be even less room to store your coat.
Puns aside, the secret sauce of a packable down coat is HyperDRY™ down. This is a higher-fill power down insulation that is both featherlight yet still works even when it gets wet. Combine this with a down coat's light nylon outer shell and you'll have cold weather protection that is practically impervious to adverse conditions. Go hiking without your jacket adding much to your gear's weight, take your dog for a walk and play fetch without weighed-down arms–basically, enjoy the outdoors without feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Taste wintry freedom with an ultra-light jacket and you won't look back! They also go perfectly with a pair of warm women's winter boots. Whether you like short, mid-calf, or long boots, there are many styles to suit your fancy.
It's practically a dream come true: a super-light coat with a thin lining that actually works! The right packable down winter coat is made with 800-fill power down that gives you more warmth per ounce than down coats with less fill. When looking for the right jacket, be sure to consider how warm they can keep you as some can be meant for milder temperatures. However, the majority of packable coats are made to keep you as warm as possible, which means you will be just fine in a typical winter. There is also an adjustable hood to keep the wind out while the outer 100% nylon shell is both water and wind-resistant! Pair your coat with some toasty women's gloves and you have an unbeatable cold-busting duo. It's always useful to have an extra set of texting gloves on hand for taking instant selfies on the go–no chilly fingers necessary!
Packable coats aren't just functional and easy to stow away, but they also fit seamlessly over your favorite women's sweater or shirt. If you're tired of that bulky feeling that often comes with the sweater-jacket combo, then you know the frustration of having limited mobility. However, packable down coats are made for the woman on the go. The jackets are designed with sweaters and your freedom in mind.
If you're looking for an alternative to down jackets, a PrimaLoft® water-resistant coat keep the chills at bay on a rainy fall or mild winter day. And, of course, its exclusive PrimaLoft® insulation mimics the performance of natural down, trapping in just the right amount of heat. The classic diamond quilting is also very cute and destined to last season after season without going out of style. Quilted jackets also pack into their corresponding drawstring bags to become convenient traveling companions.
Top off your winter with the right coat for your style and lifestyle.
