If you are planning a skiing holiday, or any holiday in a colder climate, then you are definitely going to want to make sure that you are taking the right types of clothing with you. Without a doubt, one of the most important things that you are going to need to take with you is a coat that is designed to protect from the elements. There are so many different types that you can choose from and the style is just one of the factors to consider. With this in mind, take a look below for some of the top choices for extreme cold weather coats.
Traditional Parka Coats
Womens padded coats, as well as men’s, are always going to be a good choice for extreme cold weather, and one of the best styles is the traditional parka coat. Usually made from cotton or a waterproof material, these coats were actually invented by the Caribou Inuit’s but are now a fashion statement. There are so many different styles that you can get from fur lined to padded military style and everything in between. Of course, these types of cold weather coats aren’t going to be warm enough if you’re heading to The Alps, but for extreme cold weather in Britain they are perfect.
If you are heading on a skiing trip, or simply on a holiday to an extremely cold climate, then you should definitely take a look at some winter ski jackets. These jackets can be made from all different kinds of material but are typically insulated enough to offer the level of warmth needed to stay comfortable in extremely cold weather. Most of the major sporting brands will have these types of jackets available and they are generally good to have with the unpredictability of the British winter.
In terms of men’s winter jackets, one of the nicest styles that you can go for, if you wish to remain smart, is the topcoat. There are thousands of different designs available, but if you want to go for maximum warmth then it is best to go for an outer material such as wool or a cotton and polyester blend with an insulated lining. These types of jackets are great if you want to remain looking smart and stylish without compromising on keeping warm.
Bomber jackets have been popular for decades now for both men and women. However, a lot of people will mistakenly think that they won’t be suitable for extreme cold weather but this isn’t necessarily the case. There are plenty of bomber jackets out there that are fur lined or insulated in other ways that would actually be more than sufficient for colder climates. Of course, you will have to look at the different materials that they are made out of to make sure that they are suitable, but generally if they are insulated then they should be warm enough.
These are just a couple of suggestions for some winter coats for extremely cold weather, but there are plenty of others. If you have a favourite brand like Super Dry or Adidas then they will probably have their own lines of insulated coats so it is worth checking out these too.
