With the trees dropping their leaves and the mercury plunging, it’s time once again to pull our warmest gear from the depths of our closets and prepare to brave the cold. Or maybe, rather than dusting off last year’s winter coat, you’d rather treat yourself to a brand new one before the snow flies? Nothing takes the sting out of winter’s chill like a little retail therapy! We’ve rounded up the best winter coats for women, so you can stay warm, dry, and fashionable all season long.

Our picks range from budget-friendly coats that look far more expensive than they are, to splurges you won’t regret. So whether you’re looking to invest in a heavy-duty winter coat that will last for years, or you prefer a more affordable choice that won’t take too big a bite out of your bank account, you’ll find something to love here.

Looking for the best winter coats for extreme cold, the best puffer coats for women, or the best plus size women’s winter coats? We’ve got those, too!

And a warm winter coat isn’t the only thing you’ll need this winter: Check out our picks for the best winter boots for women, the best winter gloves for women, the best winter thermals to add an extra layer of warmth under your clothes, and the best winter comforters to snuggle under during those snowy night movie marathons!

What is the warmest winter coat? 

If you live in a place where the weather gets downright frigid in the winter (we’re looking at you, Minnesota), you’ll want a coat that offers serious warmth, even in subzero temperatures (you might even want to try one of the best winter coats for extreme cold!). Down filling is the go-to choice for the warmest winter coats, but if you’re looking for a vegan winter coat, a wool coat, or a faux-fur coat, there are plenty of stylish options to keep you toasty as well.

When thinking about what kind of winter coat you want, there are many factors to consider. Do you want a puffer jacket that ends at your waist, a parka that covers your hips, or a full-length coat that falls at or below the knee? Would you prefer a coat with a hood, and if so, would you like that hood to be removable, or lined with fur, or both? Almost any winter coat you find will have pockets, but do you want them to zip closed so your gloves don’t get lost? Do you need extra pockets for phones and other gear?

No matter what you’re looking for, it’s out there — and hopefully we’ve taken some of the work out of looking for the perfect winter coat for you.

What are the best winter coat brands? 

When you’re shopping for a winter coat, you’ll want to keep an eye out for brands like Patagonia, Columbia, and The North Face — all well-known for making warm, stylish, and sturdy cold weather apparel.

But don’t discount other, lesser-known brands, like vegan-approved retailer Noize, which makes a full line of cruelty-free, sustainable coats and jackets for both men and women, and has a dedicated plus size line. If you’re looking for inclusive sizing, you’ll also want to check out Universal Standard, which carries sizes from 00 to 40.

You’ll also find fabulous picks by smaller labels at Anthropologie and other boutique retailers. Many of the best clothing stores for women over 50, such as J. Crew, Everlane, Frank And Oak, and Madewell, carry outerwear. In fact, there are so many different brands making winter coats you’ll love, you may just have to get more than one!

How much does a winter coat cost? 

A good winter coat can easily run you several hundred dollars — Canada Goose down coats are notoriously pricey (but worth it!). But if you’re on a budget, there are plenty of more affordable choices. Try looking at discount stores like Walmart, that old standby for savings. We also love Nordstrom, which carries name brand winter coats (and often has great ones on sale!). And don’t forget Amazon — they have a wide selection of winter coats, many of which are in the under-$100 price range.

The Best Winter Coats for Women in 2022

Lauren Ralph Lauren Quilted Puffer Coat

Best overall women's winter coat
ralph lauren puffer
33% off!

Buy from Nordstrom, $219 (originally $330)

Why we like it:

  • Slim lines with plenty of warmth
  • Available in 4 neutral colors
  • Machine washable

This sleek and stylish pick from Lauren Ralph Lauren is everything you need in a winter coat. It comes in black, navy, wine, or olive green, has a zip front inset for extra toastiness, and the hood doubles as a cozy collar! Unlike some puffer coats, it’s got a slim profile, so you won’t feel like the Michelin Man when you venture out in the cold. It’s also easy to care for — just toss it in the washing machine when it needs a refresh, and tumble dry it for extra fluffiness. Made of 100 percent polyester and fully lined for extra warmth, this is a coat that will stand up to years of wear.

Argo Peak Jacket

Best lightweight winter coat for women
Argo Peak down jacket
Jack Wolfskin
20% off!

Buy from Jack Wolfskin, $279 (was $349)

Why we like it:

  • Warm and lightweight
  • Compact design makes it easy to take on the go
  • Large interior pockets

This sleek winter jacket is deceptively lightweight, considering how warm it is. Icy winds don’t stand a chance of penetrating the 800 fill-power, RDS-certified down insulation, and an attached hood offers extra protection from the cold. Generously-sized interior pockets will hold not only your keys and phone, but can even accommodate a water bottle or other bulky items, while zippered outer pockets keep your hands warm and your stuff secure. You can even bundle it up and store it in its own inner pocket! This ultra-light, super-soft jacket comes in a deep blue with hot pink piping, or a bright red with gray accents (on sale now for $226.99!), and will be your go-to jacket from fall right through spring.

Editor’s note: “I have a closet full of winter coats, but this is the one I always grab when I’m running out the door. It’s lightweight enough to work in the spring, but the down filling makes it warm enough to wear even on the coldest winter days. For those unexpected March breezes, it was a godsend — I stayed toasty warm but didn’t overheat. Plus, it’s super cute! I love the hot pink detailing on the indigo, and the slim silhouette keeps me from feeling bulky and shapeless. Love it!”

Noize Kaylee Long-Length Parka

Best vegan winter coat
best winter coats for women
40% off!

Buy from Noize, $162 (was $270)

Why we like it:

  • Made from 100 percent animal-free, sustainable, PETA-approved materials
  • Available in 4 gorgeous colors
  • Stylish and warm

If you’re looking for a coat that’s cruelty-free and contains no material sourced from animals, you can’t do better than a coat from Noize, which has the PETA seal of approval and makes a wide range of vegan outerwear. We love their Kaylee Parka, and would wear it whether we were vegan or not! It’s super stylish, with a nipped-in waist, high collar, and a detachable hood lined with vegan fur. And with four lovely shades to choose from, you’re sure to find one that suits you!

Happy customer:I get compliments on this coat all the time, and it is super warm. Like wearing a sleeping bag, in the best way. The rigid collar is perfect with a thin scarf underneath to seal in the warmth. I love the look, and it feels strong and like it will last… Love the color and the quilting. Really happy!

Olympia Waterproof Down Stadium Coat

Best winter coat for tall women
olive green stadium coat
Eddie Bauer
40% off!

Buy from Eddie Bauer, $279 (originally $399)

Why we like it:

  • Machine wash, tumble dry
  • Fleece-lined collar and pockets
  • Comes in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes

If you’re tall, it can be tough to find a winter coat that keeps you warm through the hips and fits your long arms without tugging. Luckily, this Eddie Bauer coat comes in tall sizes, so you can find just the right fit! Besides that, it’s extra long, waterproof, and filled with premium down to keep you cozy. Zippered hand pockets and a two-way front zipper are useful additions, and an adjustable hood with removable faux fur accent makes it stylish and ups the warmth factor!

Happy customer: “I am a size 10 and I bought a medium. Haven’t had a good quality coat for a long time. Walked out of the mall with this on and I felt like I could enjoy being outside on a cold winter day. Design is sleek … makes one look like you have a woman’s body — back bustles in and shapely in the front. So warm and so pretty. I am extremely happy with this coat.”

Double Breast Wool Blend Reefer Coat

Best wool winter coat for women
Best Winter Coats for Women
32% off!

Buy from Nordstrom, starting at $147 (originally $220)

Why we like it:

  • Available in black or khaki
  • Beautifully tailored
  • Removable sash-tie waist

A wool winter coat is essential for those events when you just can’t wear a puffer coat, and this gorgeous design by Lauren Ralph Lauren is our pick. We love the optional sash belt and pictured camel color, but this trench coat also comes in classic black, if you’d prefer. Front welt pockets keep your hands warm, and a double-breasted button front helps keep the heat in. That said, this isn’t the coat for walking around on a bitterly cold day; however, if you need a more formal winter coat for a fancy occasion, this is the one!

Why we like it:

  • Made from Italian wool
  • Available in 7 classic colors
  • Comes in petite and tall sizing

This classic, tailored day coat from J. Crew comes in a rainbow of colors, so deciding which one to go with might be difficult. Made from Italian double-cloth wool and lined with Thinsulate, it’ll keep you nice and warm as well as looking sleek and fashionable. The cut is super flattering and doesn’t feel bulky, and the material is a favorite: J. Crew has been using it in their collection since 2001! Pockets on the side seams and buttons on the cuff add practicality, and the round collar adds a fresh and feminine touch.

One happy customer writes, “I’m obsessed with this coat! It’s beautiful! I bought the pink color and it’s not for the faint of heart. It’s a bright, highlighter pink that I adore. Lovely tailored fit. Based on reviews, I ordered up a size. I’m 5’6″ and usually a size 8. The 10 fits perfectly! I find the pockets are positioned well for me also. I love everything about this coat and can’t wait to wear it!!!”

This packable plus-sized puffer comes with its own carrying bag, which is part of the hood. You can cinch it right up with a drawstring and take it on the go! Made from a lightweight, compressible blend of premium down and EcoPlume insulation, it’ll keep you toasty warm while still feeling stylish with its tailored look. The pockets zip to keep your belongings secure, it’s water-resistant so you’ll stay dry in a squall, and it’s even machine wash and tumble dry safe!

One reviewer, who bought the coat when it was available in pink, writes, “This is a gorgeous, stylish coat and so happy it’s available in plus size. I have gotten compliments from friends, family, and co-workers any time I wear it. I sized up as recommended and glad I did. Would highly recommend!”

  • Comes in blue, black, or olive green, as well as Malbec (pictured)
  • Waterproof

This plus-size coat from Columbia Sportswear can stand up to any storm, with its waterproof fabric and tightly sealed seams that keep your body heat in. Made with 650 fill-power down insulation, it’s seriously warm. Ribbed cuffs, a drop-tail hem (that means it’s longer in back than in front), an attached hood, and a collar that snaps up complete the look and will keep you dry no matter how blustery it gets outside. Zippered pockets, soft elastic cuffs, and a drawstring waist are much-appreciated touches, as well!

Happy customer: “I LOVE this jacket! It’s super warm and comfortable, and is cut perfectly for a plus size body shape. Would highly recommend!”

Sloane Long-Length Vegan Wool Coat

Best vegan wool winter coat for women
sloane double-breasted vegan wool coat
40% off!

Buy from Noize, $174 (was $290)

Why we like it:

  • Comes in 5 gorgeous colors (or plaid!)
  • Chic oversized fit
  • Zippered pockets keep your belongings secure

This beautiful double-breasted coat is a classic, updated for today. First off, it’s vegan wool, so no animals were harmed in the making of this coat. Second, it’s got a fashion-forward, slouchy fit that will make you feel like you’re wrapped in a cozy blanket, while looking extremely stylish. Notched lapels add to the tailored look, and deep pockets keep your gloves safe and your hands warm. It’s machine washable — just hang it up to dry, and don’t dry clean it. Says one reviewer, “I absolutely love my Sloane in Magenta!! It feels heavenly to wear [and is] made beautifully. The color makes me smile every time I wear it, and I get so many comments on how good it looks. It arrived swiftly and beautifully packaged. I am so impressed.”

Editor’s note: “I have this amazing coat in green (Noize calls it clover) and I’m completely obsessed with it. For sizing, I went by the chart on the site — I’m hard to fit because I’m a small on top, a medium around the waist, and a large on the bottom. I went with a medium, and I feel like I definitely could have gotten away with a small. This coat is meant to be oversized though, so no regrets! Having it a little bigger will mean it fits easily over my favorite chunky sweaters this winter. All the other coats in my closet (and I have many) are going to be jealous!”

Buy from Nordstrom’s Rack, $89

orolay down jacket

Buy from Amazon, starting at $159

  • 4.5 stars on Amazon with nearly 12,000 reviews
  • Available in 13 colors and patterns
  • Lots of pockets

This coat is so popular, it’s known simply as “The Amazon Coat” — and we can see why people love it! If you’re a fan of pockets, you can’t do better than this coat: It’s got six huge ones, with zipper closures to keep them secure! It’s also got a fleece-lined hood, down filling to keep you warm (genuine duck feathers and down, vegans beware), and soft, ribbed knit cuffs. The most difficult thing about this coat will be trying to decide on a color — it comes in 13 different shades, including two different camouflage options!

Happy customer: “SO WARM. So stylish! I am so in love with this coat. It seems very well put together and heavy and sturdy. I am usually a size L/XL in everything and the large fits perfectly with the zippers up on the sides. It gets a bit narrow around the hips but it’s adjustable so it’s fine! Absolutely love this coat.”

Amazon Essentials is known for offering affordable basics, and this puffer coat is right on the money. It’s less than $50, stylish, and water-resistant, and comes with zippered pockets, elasticized cuffs, and even its own carrying bag to pack it into when you’re on the go! It’s made of 100 percent polyester, and not down-filled, so know what you’re getting — this is a winter coat on a budget. Still, if you’re looking for a black coat (or red, or pink, or yellow, or navy — it comes in 10 colors!) then this will do the trick. Bonus: machine washable and dryer-friendly!

Happy customer:I love this jacket! I was looking for a longer down jacket, but didn’t want to spend a lot of money and this is perfect! I am usually between a medium and a large, so I ordered the large and it fits very well. I love that it has a hood and that it is lightweight, but very warm! I am very happy with this purchase!

Canada Goose

Buy from Canada Goose, $1,275

Why we like it:

  • Removable fur

If you’ve never been a fan of the way some winter coats drown your frame, you’ll want to try the Trillium Parka Fusion Fit on for size. The Canada Goose number has a shorter hem and sleeve, and the cut is ultra flattering for those with a small bustline. Between all the pockets, the removable hood (you can even take off the fur), and the lightweight but super warm material, you’ll be happy to make the investment.

Buy from Nordstrom, $695

Why we like it:

  • Available in 5 stylish colors
  • Comes in sizes from XXS up to XXL
  • Machine washable

Canada Goose is known for their heavy duty winter coats, but the Ellison parka is surprisingly slim and lightweight! A stand collar keeps the wind out, a detachable hood has reflective detailing to keep you safe when you’re walking in the dark, and front zip pockets as well as a zippered interior pocket provide plenty of places to stash your stuff. Made from 100 percent nylon, you can throw this in the washing machine, but you’ll want to hang it up to dry. Bonus: It packs into itself, right into the interior pocket, and has a carrying loop so you can take it on the go! We also love that the back covers your rear, for those time when you have to sit on an icy outdoor seat!

Canada Goose Shelburne Parka

Best Red Winter Coat for Women
best winter coats for women
Canada Goose

Buy from Canada Goose, $1,275

Why we like it:

  • Fur-trimmed hood keeps out the chill
  • Available in 11 colors, including this standout red
  • Stands up to extreme cold

Little Red Riding Hood was never so warm — but maybe she would have been, if she’d used that big bad wolf’s fur to line her cloak! This gorgeous red coat from Canada Goose has a hood trimmed with genuine coyote fur, and is insulated with 625 fill-power down to keep you warm on the coldest days. The pockets are lined with fleece, the hood is adjustable, and the coat hits at mid-thigh. We love the red, but it comes in eleven other colors as well! (And sure, Canada Goose parkas are pricey, but they’re worth it if you are looking to invest in a winter coat that will keep you warm and dry in any weather).

Happy customer:Ahh… where do I begin? I live in New England where we have brutal winters. Also, I have a thyroid condition that makes me always feel so cold. I had tried five or six down parkas from other companies that just didn’t do the job. I finally decided to stop wasting money by purchasing inferior coats. I bought this amazing jacket on Thursday and wore it today for the first time. We had a high of 18 degrees F. I didn’t feel so much as a chill. I put the hood on and the fur stopped all the cold and wind from blowing on my face. My only regret is that I didn’t buy this coat sooner.”

The Everest Long Hooded Puffer from Universal Standard is made from water-resistant fabric so you’ll stay nice and dry, has fleece-lined pockets to keep your fingers warm, has a hidden zipper for its removable hood, and features a two-way zipper so you can zip it from the top or the bottom.

One happy customer writes, “I bought the short version of this coat in orange last winter and it quickly became my main coat. It’s warm with plenty of pockets without feel overly frumpy. When I saw they made a longer version in this beautiful olive color, I had to get it! Love that it’s long enough for my legs to be covered when I’m wearing tights or thinner leggings in the winter and it will be helpful when I’m waiting for trains/buses in Chicago’s crazy cold winters. I’m almost always a size 20, so sized up to the L (22/24) because I mostly wear sweatshirts and big sweaters and I wanted to make sure I’d be able to zip up this coat comfortably.”

  • Can wear it with or without the sash

Need a dressy coat that’s also cozy and easy to wear? The Cleo coat fits the bill! The best part? It’s reversible, so you can wear whichever shade suits your mood best that day — a rich rust hue, or a neutral flax. Made from double-faced wool, this is a gorgeous coat that’s perfect for any occasion, but works especially well when you want to look a little bit fancy. Contrasting lapels, deep pockets for your gloves, sunglasses, and phone, and a sash that you can tie or leave loose make this a perfect fall coat that will take you straight into winter.

Editor’s note: “I got this coat last year and it was comfy, I sometimes wore it around the house. It’s like a soft blanket, fuzzy and warm, but also looks super sophisticated when you wear it out (which obviously, is what it’s meant for). I got tons of compliments on it and am excited that colder weather is back so I can wear it again!”

Happy customer: “I love this coat. Honestly I waited too many years tolerating a shorter, less warm coat and finally gave in and bought this one this year. I’m so sorry that I waited. This coat is fantastic for my needs. I walk a very large dog in the woods at 6 o’clock every morning through New England‘s winter. This coat is generous enough to wear a sweater underneath without being sweaty warm… I love it.”

Canada Goose Snow Mantra Parka

best winter coats for women
Canada Goose

Buy from Canada Goose, $1,595

Why we like it:

  • Billed as “the warmest coat on earth”
  • Designed for industrial and commercial workers in the world’s coldest areas
  • Comes in 3 colors

If you live in a very cold climate, plan to visit one, or just won’t tolerate ever being cold at all, the famous Snow Mantra Parka from Canada Goose is what you want. Billed as “the warmest coat on earth,” its popularity proves it’s not just a marketing line. It’s extremely durable, made from Canada Goose’s signature Arctic Tech fabric, and for having so many heat-trapping features, it’s not as bulky as you might expect. With 14 total pockets, a large storm flap, a fleece-lined wind guard, and air-activated warming pouches, this coat is all about staying warm and is not fooling around! For better range of motion and ventilation, it’s equipped with side seam zippers, and a built-in nylon snow skirt helps keep the inside nice and dry. Choose from black or the pictured navy, in addition to red if you want to really stand out!

Happy customer: “I bought this parka two winters ago and it is still very warm and almost like new! … I live in Northern Saskatchewan, where temperatures drop down to -50 C at times. Wearing this parka during the very extreme cold weather makes it a great parka to have. One of my best purchases I have ever made.”

everlane duvet puffer coat

Buy from Everlane, $248

Why we like it:

  • Available in 3 great neutral colors
  • Made from earth-friendly recycled fabric
  • Machine washable and dryer-safe

Sometimes you just don’t want to crawl out of bed on a chilly winter morning, am I right? Well, you’re in luck! Wearing Everlane’s Duvet Puffer is, as you might guess, like wrapping yourself in your comforter, to make venturing out in the snow that much easier. A cozy hood, boxy cut, long length, and a waist tie will keep you snug as a bug in a rug — and knowing that this coat is made from nearly 100 percent recycled materials, from the lining to the down insulation, will make you feel good about buying it. (Only the zippers and trim aren’t made from recycled materials.) Choose from black, smoke, or sandstone, and bundle up!

Burberry Kensington Trench Coat with Detachable Hood

Best Winter Trench Coat for Women
best winter coats for women

Buy from Nordstrom, $1,350

Why we like it:

  • Comes in black or camel
  • Made of water-resistant taffeta
  • Removable hood

Winter doesn’t only mean snow, it often means rain as well! Or the dreaded “wintry mix,” which as far as we can tell just means sleet. In any case, you’ll likely want a rain jacket, or trench coat, that can double as a winter coat in your wardrobe of outerwear. We love this trench coat, because it’s water-resistant, has a removable hood, and comes in classic black or camel. Use the detachable belt to give this timeless coat a more fitted silhouette, and adjust the cuffs to your desired comfort level. The entire coat is impossibly chic, and we appreciate that the under-collar is lined with Burberry’s signature plaid fabric for a small pop of the brand’s iconic pattern.

Happy customer: “I went back and forth on whether to invest this much in a trench but I’m so glad I did. The fit is sleek, slimming, and classic. I will get so much wear out of this for years to come, especially because it’s so versatile. You can wear it with jeans and a tee or a dress and look great. Love that the hood is detachable for multiple looks and functions, too.”

L.L. Bean Women’s Ultralight 850 Down Coat

Buy from L.L. Bean, $289

The Ultralight 850 Down Coat will keep you warm from head to toe! Or at least, from head to knees. Crafted with L.L. Bean’s signature down that’s treated to be water-repellent and resist clumping, it’s surprisingly light yet awesomely toasty. And if you’re worried about having full range of movement — something that can be tricky in a full-length coat — you’ll love that this coat has a two-way zipper that lets you open it at the bottom or the top! Made for those times when you need to stay really warm and really dry, this full-length coat is one of the best winter coats for women you can buy.

Happy customer: “This coat is the coat I have been looking for for 50 years! It is lightweight, warm, and comfortable. The zipper opens from the bottom smoothly to allow [for] driving with ease. It is roomy enough to bend easily and swing my arms when I walk. I have built a snowman in it! It is beautiful and beautifully made. I expect to never need another winter coat. I love this coat!”

Eddie Bauer Sun Valley Down Parka

Most Popular Down Coat on Amazon
sun valley down coat
29% off!

Buy from Amazon, starting at $175 (was $230)

Why we like it:

  • Front pocket is the perfect size to hold a phone
  • Durable, water-repellent finish
  • Warm fleece lining

Which of the five colors will you choose if you buy this coat? That might be the toughest decision to make when picking out a new winter coat on Amazon, because this one is so popular and beloved by happy customers. Eddie Bauer’s Sun Valley Down Parka is made with 650 fill-power down, which offers warmth without the bulk, and the shell is crafted with a metallic cross-dying process that adds a subtle sheen of iridescence you’ll love. The two-way zipper means you can adjust it from the top or bottom for comfortable movement, and the fleece lining feels cozy, even over layers (yes, the pockets are fleece-lined and zip up!).

Happy customer: “I live in Wisconsin and bought this coat prior to a trip that included Chicago, Minneapolis, and Amsterdam. One coat had to handle all three places. This one was absolutely perfect! Chicago was cold, Amsterdam was cool and overcast, with rain thrown into the mix on our last day, and Minneapolis was downright frigid — meaning never above zero and as low as 19 below. I was comfortable in all three places, as well as at home since I returned. Another advantage is that the coat stuffed easily into the overhead compartment on the airplane without taking up much space. A nice feature is that it has a zipper pocket on the left chest that fits my iPhone 8 Plus. I am particularly pleased because I returned two or three disappointing coats before I finally got this one. It was definitely worth waiting for.”

Buy from Amazon, starting at $89

Why we like it:

  • Very affordable (under $100)
  • Comes in 11 different solid colors plus 2 different shades of camouflage
  • Thousands of 5-star Amazon reviews

Do you love the look of a fur-trimmed hood? This down puffer parka will do the trick! The faux fur is plentiful, framing your face to make you look like the queen of cold weather — and it won’t shed, either. A two-way zipper closure opens from the top or the bottom, and elasticized cuffs keep the cold out. There are two deep outer pockets, plus an interior pocket, so you can stash your keys, phone, mask, and other must-haves, and the windproof, waterproof material will keep them safe and dry. Besides the affordable price tag, you’ll love that this coat comes in a wide array of colors.

Happy customer: “I have thoroughly tested this coat. It’s really warm, and not too heavy. It’s a nice fit — I’m normally a 6 to 8 and got a small. It seems to work as a coat when you’re going out with just a few layers on, but also fits over thicker layers without losing the fitted look. The fur trim pops on really easily … and doubles up as a good fur collar when you have the hood down. I would definitely recommend this coat.”

Happy customer: “I love this jacket. Light, but warm against temperature and wind, and easy to squish into a bag to pack. The styling is cute — it isn’t tailored, so it is roomy for layering, but the bottom hem is adjustable so you can tighten it as you wish. I am very pleased with it! (I am a size small, ordered a small and it is what I expected–not tight, room to layer, but not too big).”

I was skeptical that this coat would be as warm as my North Face down coat but it is above and beyond. I’ve tested this out in subzero New England conditions for several weeks and it lives up to all its promises. It’s so warm I can wear a thin shirt under and feel warm and toasty without all the bulk. Quality of coat is amazing too. Fits true to size.”
