Winter is on its way. Ned Stark warned everyone about it long before Hightowers and Targaryen rulers appeared on our screens. So, unlike the rest of Westeros, let us all take the Lord of Winterfell’s advice and plan ahead of time. That’s right, folks: we’re diving headfirst into winter, bracing ourselves for the snowfall, biting breezes, and all-around chill that the season is known for. And the best way to combat the elements successfully is, of course, with a winter coat.
Don’t mix it up with a fun fall jacket or bomber. No, the best winter jackets are heavy-duty, extremely insulating, and, last but not least, they look great. What’s more, guess what? There are numerous options available. Of course, Canada Goose produces a mean parka. Moncler, Nike, and The North Face all make puffers. Woolrich and Uniqlo have element-blocking anoraks. And Arc’Teryx and A-Cold-Wall* have coats that are too stylish to pass up. There are a variety of toppers available at various price points that will shield you from wind, snow, sleet, and other inclement weather. Simply choose your favorite and bundle up.
