How to choose a Winter Jacket

Choosing a winter jacket is one of those things that takes some thought. You’ll need a jacket that’s not to heavy or light, but one that fits your preferences just right. Here are some things to consider when you’re choosing a winter jacket.

1. Hood

Should you have a hood for your winter jacket? There is a lot of convenience behind having a hood that’s already on the winter jacket you choose.

2. Waterproof

For all of the times you will get snow, ice, and other precipitation on your jacket it’s important to have a water proof jacket. A waterproof jacket can help you stay warmer because you’re not going to be focused on trying to try a wet jacket all of the time. If you’ve never experienced a wet jacket in sub degree temperatures, then you are totally missing out.

3. Pockets

Gloves, hats, mittens, or whatever else you wear during those winter months need a place to hang out when you’re not wearing them. An ideal winter jacket is going to need pockets for you to keep all of your warm winter goodies but also to put your hands for a quick warm up. I prefer winter jackets with deep pockets, but you may not have a preference.

4. Shell

One of my favorite parts of choosing a winter jacket is deciding if I want a shell as part of it or not. Some of the best jackets I’ve owned over time have included a shell. Honestly, there are a ton of varieties of shells for jackets, you have to pick a style and a design you like. I still think it’s an important part of choosing a winter jacket.
Choosing a winter jacket is all about what’s comfortable and affordable. You don’t want to spend a ton on a jacket that you’re only going to wear for one season. If you can swing it, then spend time picking out a winter jacket that will last for many years to come.
