HAVING A PROPER WINTER COAT: WINTER'S ESSENTIALS.

The best gear to enhance your holiday season.

PUBLISHED: SEP 10, 2020


> CONTINUE ARTICLE

Some enjoy the winter more than others, but bearing the cold weather can become a drag for those without the proper winter gear.

Someone wise said having the right tool for the job can make the task at hand a lot easier. As times continue to change, the trend of purchasing lasting quality actually ends up being a better trade off than trying to make do with something sub-par and poorly made.

Is high quality down really warm?

Its very simple, the quality of fill used when creating the winter garment will dramatically affect your comfort level & ability to fend cold climate. Even though many claim to use a high fill power, what they fail to expose to many of their customers is the quality of the mix used. With Carbonesque you can get Ultra-lightweight winter coats that use high quality down so you can stay relaxed and enjoy warmth without the bulky weight.

The benefits to having a great coat over a good one

With tons of options available and many styles varying from a wide range of price, one may ask what is the best coat? or the 'sweet spot'. Since many brands now offer 'winter clothing' starting at $50-250, is merely a vision considering what you end up with. A budget jacket will start anywhere from $300-600, but many of these products simply cannot sustain the quality they promise. Higher end coats can range from $799 - $1200 but this is what you would consider the sweet spot. Usually given an exception to a few, most products are able to sustain quality over a decent duration & offer lifetime warranty. Anything selling for a price higher than discussed is likely a 'luxury' & not providing as much worth as it costs.

1. Keeping the heat in and the cold out

Body heat is nice but it has multiple escape routes, choosing a coat that is breathable yet really warm is essential. The decision depends on the shell, the material it is made out of and of course, the type of insulation inside. Take note of these details as they determine the warmth and longevity of your future coat.

2. Technical or stylish?

Why not both? There shouldn't be a compromise on style or the function of your winter jacket. Whether you are investing in a bomber or a parka, both should perform in the cold weather. Even if you are compromising on the length, each coat should have a level of versatility and useful features. When purchasing, check out the temperature ratings and the fill power of each coat.

3. Choosing your perfect fit

Ask yourself what type of fit you like... loose fitting for layering, or a slim fit for casual and professional wear? Either way, choose a fit that reflects the given size charts of the coat you are purchasing. If you are into a more loose fit and plan on layering up, choosing a size up may be the way to go. Sizing may differ from other brands, which is why it's always important to measure yourself prior to purchasing.

4. Purchasing for the long haul

When we think of a winter jacket, we generally want to think of it as a long term investment, especially based on the price point. The quality and materials used are a huge factor in the longevity and performance of a given jacket. Some things to consider; what kind of materials are used in the outer shell and inner shell? What type of insulation is used? Are the accessories such as zippers and buttons high quality? Each of these details are just as important as the other in the overall performance and quality of the product. Seeing as we all love getting our moneys worth, take the extra time to read and discover more details about the product you are purchasing.

5. The complete system

Any good winter parka or winter bomber should be packed with features and be able to face the harsh climates it was build for. You want to feel good and excited about your purchase while also having a peace of mind that you made the right buy. Your new winter garment should check out all the essential details that are required to beat the cold while looking your best.
