As the winter settles in, staying warm in the coldest months of the year is a daily necessity. Even if you’re not carving your way through snowy slopes, you still need something to keep you out of the chill, especially for those nights out on the town. Luckily, there are several types of winter jackets to choose from. But do you know the 3 types of best winter jackets for the season?

However, we would argue that the best way to save money on your winter coat shopping is to know what to look for.


Finding the Right Winter Jacket For Your Needs


Depending on how you plan to spend the winter, your needs in a winter jacket will vary. If you’re going to spend the time hiking the mountains or at your favorite ski resort, your best option probably won’t be the same as someone who is spending their time at the mall or exploring the city. However, most winter jackets fall into one of three categories. Next, think about each of these and try to determine which is more likely to meet your needs.


1. Technical Winter Jackets

For those out looking for action and adventure, the technical winter jacket is usually the best choice. But you won’t need any kind of technical experience to wear it.  Essentially, this is another name for a lightweight, weather-resistant jacket. The term “technical” is derived from the material, which is both breathable and insulating. They also allow you a full range of movement. Versatility and comfort is a vital element for those engaging in outdoor activities. 

Additionally, technical winter jackets will often include more technical features, such as:

  • Helmet-compatible hoods

  • Removable hoods

  • Additional zipper pockets

  • Removable hoods

  • Moldable in-hood framing wire

  • Double toggle hood drawstring

  • Telescopic sleeves with elasticized rib knit cuffs

  • Interior zip pockets

  • Chest patch pockets

Generally, these lightweight jackets are more compressible, and therefore easier to pack. As a drawback, these kinds of jackets don’t provide the same level of protection and comfort from the sub-zero temperatures as heavy winter coats.

While Arctic Bay does not specialize in lightweight layers, most of our winter jackets utilize many of the most efficient technical features on this list. So you get the same versatility with additional luxury and protection. One special tribute to technical design and style is the Nunavut Champion Limited Edition Parka.

2. Casual Winter Coats

While staying warm is essential in the harsher winter months, Arctic Bay’s fusion of fashion and comfort is always in season. Our more casual, around-town winter jackets offer a variety of luxury features aimed at comfort, such as:

  • Large hoods 

  • Fur trim

  • Down insulation

  • Lined hand-warmer pockets

But we don’t ignore the importance of some more technical features either. Our casual coats are not quite as “casual” as the competition. Each piece is designed for maximum warmth and comfort while still offering a pleasing aesthetic and technical options.

3. Do-It-All Winter Jackets

We’ve said it before- when it comes to finding the right jacket it all depends on your needs. For those who like to mix it up, without wanting the hassle of packing an extra suitcase, a do-it-all winter jacket is a perfect choice. 

These jackets will have technical features that are crucial for winter activities while remaining stylish enough wear for a night out. With this kind of coat, you can take a walk through the snow, enjoy the nightlife with someone special, or stay warm for those long days on the mountain. They come equipped with a generous helping of down insulation, so whatever you do, you can do it without fear of the elements.
