What to Look for in Your Winter Jacket
Water and wind stop here.
When choosing a jacket for snowy months, choose one that is waterproof or water-resistant and windproof. Wet snow will dampen your day once a breeze goes by and the cold-weather combo pulls warmth away from your body.
Warmth comes from within.
You don't need bulk and a million layers to beat the chill. Choose a jacket with insulation to keep warmth next to your body during frigid days.
Snow stays out, softness stays in.
It's all in the details: zippered pockets, snow cuffs, adjustable drawcord hems and hoods keep moisture away. Features like chin guards and soft lining keep you cozy and comfortable.
