This year, we're hoping for a cold, snowy winter. Be prepared for it wherever you go with these parkas.

We’re hoping for an epic winter this year, and while we’re used to focusing on dialing in our ski kits, we also need a warm, stylish jacket to wear to work and around town. We scoured online reviews and found five well-reviewed parkas that look good enough to wear on date night while offering next-level warmth.

Kuhl Skyfire Jacket ($400)

The Skyfire is stuffed with 800-fill goose down yet maintains a sleek cut thanks to a baffle design that reduces bulk in the arms and sides. The ripstop nylon outer shell has a DWR treatment to fight wintry mix conditions. Drawcords around the waist and hood allow you to customize the fit.

Canada Goose Langford Down Jacket ($950)

It’s not cheap, but if you’re battling really cold nights, you can’t overlook the proven warmth of Canada Goose. The water-resistant shell is filled with 650-fill down and features a longer torso to keep your lower half warm. The beefy YKK front zipper won’t jam, and hook-and-loop closures in the storm flap ensure that you’re sealed up tight against the wind.

Woolrich Bitter Chill ($350)

We like the retro style of the Bitter Chill jacket. The brushed herringbone outer shell adds class to the fully waterproof shell that’s stuffed with a wool/polyester blend. The inside is fully lined with a soft polyester/nylon blend, while the outer pockets and storm flap over the zipper have stylish oversized buttons.

The Camosun’s Gore-Tex outer layer is fully waterproof. Inside, you’ll find 750-fill goose down in the body and water-resistant synthetic insulation in areas prone to getting wet. The understated styling and streamlined cut make this jacket a go-to for brutally cold nights on the town. The hood detaches if you’re looking for a more formal coat.
