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.
Arc’teryx Camosun Parka ($650)
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.
