This duck-down jacket is excellently made. The small square construction ensures that the feathers stay in place and the hood is lined with soft padding. People who have bought this jacket tout its warmth and water resistance for common rainfalls, but you’ll still need an umbrella if you’re in a downpour. There are zippers to expand around the hips, and you’ll find that the sizes fit what you would expect. With over 6,000 positive reviews, you really can’t go wrong.
Columbia products are known for their quality, and it’s no surprise that this coat has a near perfect rating after thousands of reviews.

Merino Wool Chunky Knit Coat With Buttons
I’m adoring the chunky collar and side buttons on this sweater coat. The sweater hits above the knee for most wearers. I am often itchy when I wear sweaters, but this is made with soft yarn. Even though it is a sweater, it is tightly knit to keep warm in cold weather.
Carhartt Men's Arctic Quilt Lined Sandstone Traditional Coat
If you’re a fan of the work jacket, this is a classic coat that can handle rough work (or not, if you please). This is highly rated for its well-fitted casual look that keeps you warm. There are plenty of useful pockets, including hand warming pockets in the front. Carhartt brand is known for its durability and quality.
If you commute through wind and rain, a good waterproof jacket is really important. I have friends who ride their bikes or motorcycles to work, and showing up still put together is only possible with the right gear. This jacket is also breathable which is usually an issue with waterproof materials. The high praise keeps pouring in for this coat, with 77% 5-star reviews on Amazon.
Because this is an Amazon Essentials jacket, you know it has been tested and tried by a company that you trust. I was skeptical because this jacket is so well-priced it’s practically suspect. Reviewers are in love with this jacket for its simplicity and how lightweight it is. This coat is great for travel, especially when you don’t have much space and the weather may be variable.
