In the winter, your jacket is your main line of defense against the elements. When selecting your winter coats, jackets and vests, think about your needs during the winter season. Several different types of winter jackets are available:

Insulated Jackets: These traditional winter jackets are packed with an insulator to provide burly warmth. These jackets are typically constructed with either down or a synthetic material. An insulated jacket's loft, or fluffiness, is measured by its fill power—the amount of space taken up by one ounce of down or synthetic insulator.

Fleece Jackets: These jackets are lightweight and versatile. Four-way stretch fabrication ensures you can move easily. Wear your fleece alone or as a baselayer beneath a soft shell jacket.

Soft-Shell Jackets: These wind and waterproof jackets can be worn alone during mild conditions or paired with a baselayer or fleece for customizable warmth.

Three-in-One System Jackets: These coats feature multiple components that can be zipped together, forming a single protective jacket. Wear the layers separately in mild conditions.

Winter Vests: From down to fleece, select from a variety of jackets designed to go where you do this winter.

Winter is all about warmth and comfort. Layer up with the season's essentials, including hoodies, zip-up jackets and long-sleeve T-shirts.

Consider the level of weatherproofing you need in your outerwear. Many jackets come lined with DWR, or durable waterproof repellent. This substance lines individual fibers on your jacket, rather than the full surface, creating a more breathable barrier against moisture.

Some jackets come with critical seams taped to help fortify you from the elements. When jackets are constructed, needle holes from stitching leave the garment vulnerable to water and air seepage. Jackets with critical seams sealed ensure you're protected from inclement weather.
