Not only are these jackets unmatched in the warmth department, but since they’re largely designed for the outdoors, their fabrics are generally lightweight and durable, with some even able to fold up into a travel-friendly bag.
They also make bold colours and prints feel casual enough for daily wear, making them a great way to break up an otherwise neutral wardrobe.
The trick to choosing the right style for you may come down to technology. While some of these jackets lean more towards trend pieces, perfect for in-between weather, others from brands like The North Face and Kathmandu are packed with heat-retaining fibres that work to insulate the body and keep you cosy—great for those of us living in colder climates.
And at such a range of price points, you’re bound to find one that suits your budget. Below are our top picks.
