Winter Coats

Winter Coats

Has anyone found any good quality winter coats? I live in Wales, UK and it's always wet and windy so one to keep me toasty warm and dry is what I'm looking for as I wanna start walking again ๐Ÿ’œ

Hi, I have a Regatta which is waterproof with a removable fleece lining. Keeps me really toasty in the winter and can be just a raincoat in the summer. North Face are also good, but more expensive.

Hello! Not sure what companies you can order from there but I got my 2 from LL Bean - the most full wool coat I could find in my price range - and Eddie Bauer. Both companies offer coats that have how they work in different temps. I live in Minnesota in the States, I need coats every year that go down to -30 or so and my coats from those stores work. They have online stores, roughly $200, but i have not had to replace them and wonโ€™t for quite some time.

Maybe check out
puffer jackets with a down alternative,
squall jackets, or
quilted coats.
The reason I suggest these types of coats is because when I wear one that is heavy it presses down on my upper back and shoulders area and it hurts a lot. Having super warm coats that are light in terms of weight but not "light-weight" can make all the difference. :) Hope that helps and good luck.

I actually wear a hooded raincoat with a liner in it. This keeps the cold out for me as well as I can layer under it so I allow for that when ordering. I had to get a size bigger to allow for the layering. This keeps me warmer than a heavy winter coat because it did not keep the wind and water off. The raincoat is waterproof and the wind and water do not penetrate it. I hope you find what you are looking for as I don't know what is available in the UK. Hugs and prayers. God bless.
