    1. A waterproof ski jacket brilliantly designed to work double duty as a rain repeller AND a wind breaker.


    Promising review: "THIS COAT, HANDS DOWN, IS A MUST-HAVE! If you don't want to go through the trouble of going to a store and looking for hours, look no further! This is hands down the warmest coat I've ever owned. I primarily commute by bike and needed a new coat that was lightweight, warm, and super affordable. It also fits perfectly... You will love this coat!" —Cody VanderHeyden

    Get it from Amazon for $59.49+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 11 colors).

    2. A classic North Face Nuptse jacket stuffed with a lofty 700-fill down for maximum warmth. In addition to being a streetwear icon, it's also water resistant and features a stowable hood.

    The North Face

    Promising review: "I remember coveting this jacket 25 years ago. The retro version doesn't disappoint. After all this time it's still a premium piece of kit for cold, inclement weather. The styling still holds up exceedingly well." —Henry

    Get it from The North Face for $280 (available in sizes XXS–3XL).

    3. A hooded pullover fleece likely to become your go-to when it's chilly out but the precipitation is holding off. The kangaroo pocket will be the ultimate pouch for your gloveless hands while you wait for your Americano at the walk-up window.

    Promising review: "This pullover is the warmest and softest jacket I have ever owned...Literally! At first, I was skeptical about how the warmth would do in cold temperatures due to previous sherpas being too light but this coat has some serious warmth to the point that I get too warm if wearing it indoors. I usually wear an XL because my arms are long and I was worried it would be too baggie, however, it fits perfectly. If you are looking for a jacket that keeps you warm in extremely cold temperatures I highly recommend getting this jacket." —Andrew Bonner

    Get it from Backcountry for $71.97+ (originally $119.95; available in sizes S–XXL and three colors).

    4. A Uniqlo puffer jacket that's big on warmth and light on bulk. It's packed with pocket space and a high collar to shield your neck from the raging wind.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $235 (available in sizes S–XL).

    7. An insulated jacket that's been designed to do it all: provide waterproof, breathable, windproof warmth all winter long.


    Promising review: "Wonderful price for the features (GoreTex!, insulated, and pit zips). Found the fit to be excellent. Works over a shirt, but with enough room for a light- to midweight sweater or fleece. I love the copper spice heather color. In addition to wearing it around town, I plan to use the coat next deer season. Should be perfect for Texas winters." —CrashJohnson

    Get it from REI for $148.83 (originally $299; available in sizes M–XXL and three colors).

    8. A packable puffer you can literally fold up into a tiny carrying pouch, perfect for excursions where you want to be prepared but don't want your extra layer taking up space in the suitcase.,

    Promising review: "A great jacket for the price, especially when compared to other brands which are well over $100. Very lightweight yet warm and fits perfectly. I get a lot of compliments on it and people are always surprised when I tell them how cheap it was. Definitely recommended. It gets below freezing here in the winter so I grab my heavy winter coat still on the cold days but this is the best for those in-between days where the heavy coat is too hot but just a shirt is not enough." —Micah E.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.04+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 13 colors).

    9. A Marmot puffer that's ultra warm and incredibly stylish. Dare we call it a Moncler dupe?


    Promising review: "This coat will keep you warm in any weather. It is a bit on the puffy side, but one of the warmest jackets I have ever owned. The quality is top-notch with very nice zippers. There is a cord to tighten the waist are hidden in the front pockets, which I thought was rather innovative." —Tyron

    Get it from Amazon for $222+ (available in sizes S–XL and five colors).

    10. A puffer jacket with faux-fur–lined hood that sacrifices nothing in the way of warmth OR style.


    Get it from Asos for $150 (available in sizes 3XL–5XL).

    11. And a packable puffer vest — same concept, sans sleeves., Amazon

    Promising review: "A great purchase thus far. Quality is high. Color is vibrant. It's a nice weight: midrange (not super puffy/wintery; not super thin/pointless). I recommend this item to y'all." —Reverend Mike

    Get it from Amazon for $27.60+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 11 colors).

    12. A water-repellent windbreaker that'll come to the rescue when light showers and wind tunnels appear out of nowhere.


    Get it from H&M for $34.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and four colors).

    J. Crew

    Get it from J.Crew for $189.50 (available in sizes XS–XXL and three colors).

    15. An Everlane ReNew parka that, sit down, is made from recycled plastic bottles. Big sustainability mood and we're here for it! 🌎


    Promising review: "This is the nicest parka/jacket I’ve ever owned. I love that it is made from recycled plastics from a sustainability standpoint. The comfort is amazing and keeps me so warm. The little touches like the fitting wrist cuffs, and the inner cinch cord elevate this jacket to the next level. All the pockets are amazing and I love the handwarmer pockets because they keep your arms positioned upward for that good arm circulation. It looks amazing and I hope everyone takes this jacket into consideration as their go-to winter coat." —Jourdain

    Get it from Everlane for $228 (available in sizes XS–XL and two colors).

    16. An Alpha Industries bomber equipped with a 100% water-repellent nylon shell and has been masterfully perfected over the years to withstand freezing temps (they've been making military jackets for half a century).

    Alpha Industries

    Get it from Alpha Industries for $200 (available in sizes XS–5XL and three colors).

    17. A Patagonia Downdrift Jacket that's been Fair Trade Certified sewn and partially made from recycled materials. Its retro design is just as suitable for the trail as it is for any weekday commute.

    model wearing the Patagonia jacket in brown

    Get it from Patagonia for $299 (available in sizes XS–XXL and five colors). 

    18. An Eddie Bauer parka insulated with ThermaFill and lined with fleece for added warmth, while a two-way front zip allows you to move about your day flexibly and comfortably.


    Promising review: "Pleasantly surprised. The size is perfect, not too loose and not thin. Extra room to layer up. The outer shell is a very thin windbreaker material. I thought it would not be warm enough. It's very warm especially because of the wool-like material on the inside. Had it a month and I love it. Pockets in upper front to keep yours hands warm. I have worn it with just a T-shirt in 15-degree weather and felt warm." —Jose Gonzalez

    Get it from Amazon for $111.30 (available in sizes S–L-Tall and three colors).

    19. A Canada Goose Lodge Hoodie that is certainly an investment, but is sure to get you through cold winters for at least the next decade.

    East Dane

    This jacket is made in Canada with a midweight, nonstretch ripstop fabric and filled with 90% down, 10% feathers — an ideal ratio for keeping the warmth in and the Arctic-level temperatures out.

    Get it from East Dane for $575 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    20. A Wrangler hooded flannel made with a relaxed fit for layering and heavyweight materials for ultimate warmth.


    Promising review: "Great quality jacket. Keeps me warm even in single-digit temperatures for quite a while. It’s a little baggy but not so much so that it’s annoying. The hood is a good size as well (covers the whole head including with a cap) definitely would love to buy another in a different color." —ShadowFoxx

    Get it from Amazon for $24+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 10 colors).

    21. A Columbia Bugaboo interchange jacket that's cozy fleece on the inside, durable waterproof layer on the outside. You can wear the two layers together or separately — we love a three-for-one deal.


    Promising review: This jacket proved to be worth every cent, very nice warm inner layer and the outer jacket is high quality with strong zippers and Velcro. I highly recommend for anyone looking for a nice winter jacket. Although maybe I shouldn't because I hate when I see other people wearing the same clothes as me." —Josh

    Get it from Amazon for $53.78+ (available in sizes S–5X, including tall sizes, and 22 colors).

    22. An L.L. Bean water-resistant jacket with a warm flannel lining and added details, like snap closures, extra pockets, and a drawcord waist for added comfort.

    L.L. Bean

    Promising review: "This is a great piece of outerwear...perfect on its own in mild weather and works well over a vest when it gets cooler...not waterproof but very water-resistant...nice array of pockets...highly recommended." —JamesLTX

    Get it from L.L. Bean for $129 (available in sizes S–XXL and three colors).

    23. An Arc'teryx hoodie that might just be the warmest layer you've ever wrapped your body in. It's slim enough to add additional layers underneath or over top.

    model wearing the Arcteryx in navy

    Promising review: "Super lightweight, packable, and super warm. What more could you ask for from a puffer jacket? I layer this under my snowboarding jacket when riding storm days (below 20s) and it's perfect." —Aaron

    Get it from Amazon for $303.20+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 11 colors).

    24. A Carhartt Detroit jacket featuring a blanket lining and a corduroy-trimmed collar equally suited for the garage as it is for the street.

    Carhartt Detroit jacket in brown

    Promising review: "I have purchased this same Detroit Jacket from Carhartt several times over the years because it is a really tough work jacket with a warm blanket lining, and it’s a nice jacket length for working in the shop or for driving. The heavy canvas material cuts the wind nicely on cold days. I love this coat. You can’t beat it for the price and it is one tough work jacket." —MJ Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and two colors).

    25. An affordable parka that looks an awful lot like it's from that Canadian brand...but for a fraction of the price.


    Promising review: "Excellent purchase. Very comfortable, lots of pockets, good fit. Really great is the high collar that zips and buttons so that your neck is shielded from the wind." —mtnmarge

    Get it from Walmart for $89.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and five colors).

    26. A Tommy Hilfiger quilted coat that, get this, comes with a detachable scarf. Style meets substance!


    Promising review: "Great cold weather coat, and the scarf adds a lot of flexibility. This is one of my go-to jackets during the NYC winter. It's good down to about 15 degrees Fahrenheit and up to about 45 degrees Fahrenheit, but it isn't the best at protecting against wind." —AEM

    Get it from Amazon for $66.09+ (available in sizes S–XXL).

    27. A Levi's military puffer jacket with a plaid accent at the shoulders that'll makes this straightforward winter jacket standout from your buddies'.


    Promising review: "Awesome, straightforward jacket for cold weather. Definitely needs a layer underneath for super cold temps but it does insulate pretty well on its own. I commute by foot to work every day in New England and this has done me right. Not too bulky, and the hood is nice and deep. Pockets have a nice fleece liner for the backs of your hands. Shell is water-resistant but not waterproof if you're in steady rain. Will def buy another in a different color." —Tim

    Get it from Amazon for $76.18+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 12 colors/patterns).
