Whether you stick faithfully to one coat throughout the entire season or stock up on a wide variety, it’s important to be prepared for whatever type of winter weather you’ll experience, wherever your travels may take you.
Below, we’ve rounded up a slew of coats of various styles; some have hoods, some have faux fur; some are all-function — think lightweight and ultra-packable — while some seamlessly wed fashion with utility. Heck, one even folds up neatly into a nifty airplane neck pillow.
