Top 3 Best Winter Jackets of the Season

‘Tis the season for winter jackets. Heck, ‘tis the season for winter boots, scarves, hats, gloves…the list could go on. If you’re in need of new winter gear, there’s a method for every type of shopper. Some prefer to hunt around for discounted items, whether it’s pre-owned designer gear or bargain brands found in outlet malls or consignment stores. Others, however, prefer to splurge on one or two quality, top of the line items. For some, since winter wardrobes tend to be simplified (most find it unnecessary to own 5 different winter jackets, or 10 different pairs of gloves), it’s worth splurging for a solid coat or pair of boots that will work well and last all winter long.

No matter which kind of shopper you may be, most feel that it’s easiest to order one’s shoes or coat online. Fortunately, many resources are available that offer dozens of online, premium winter gear at both top line prices and smart discounts. Of all the winter gear to add to the shopping cart, most would agree that having a dependable winter jacket should be the number one wardrobe priority. Not sure which winter coat should make the cut this year? We’ve narrowed down the top 3 most worthwhile cold-weather wraps of the season. From breathability to moisture wicking technology and even battery-powered pocket warmers, the following winter jackets will knock anyone’s socks off:


1. Helly Hansen Coastal Parka: Its breathable material keeps you warm and dry, which as a result will help to regulate your body temperature. This 3/4-length hooded parka coat is both waterproof and windproof. Not only is it and waterproof, it is also very breathable. It comes equipped with a fully seam seal, 2-layer construction and is also fully insulated. Perfect for those cold, wet winter days!


2. Under Armour Cold-Gear Infrared Werewolf Jacket:  This high-tech coat repels water without sacrificing breathability. The insulation is lightweight and can be compressed without losing warmth. ColdGear Infrared uses a soft, thermo-conductive inner coating to absorb and retain your own body heat. This masterpiece is also windproof with a bonded, 2-layer softershell material on chest and arms. Not to mention the ColdGear cuffs that add stretch and warmth to shut out that icy winter chill.


3. Stormy Kromer Mackinaw Wool Coat: It’s might chilly out there in the big world, and this roomy, durable, 26 oz. virgin-wool coat protects you from the elements while wrapping you in the warmth of 109 years of hand-woven heritage. With 26 oz 100% Virgin Wool and made here in the U.S., it doesn’t get much cooler (or warmer) than that!

Whichever winter jacket you choose this year, just make sure it suits you. With these 3 winter jackets, you’ll get more bang for your buck—but there’s nothing more important than feeling comfortable wearing it and buy it!

Once you’re shopping spree has been completed, it’s time to get busy planning all the details to finalize your fool proof winter getaway. We’ve narrowed down 5 tips for ensuring that perfect holiday adventure!

1 Nail down the date: For a bigger trip that involves significant accommodations, plan at least a month ahead. If it’s your first time, or your trip involves extensive, complicated arrangements, give yourself an extra couple of weeks.

2 Be aware of the weather: Although nobody can see the future, it’s still important to actively check your mountain’s website and weather updates as your departure date approaches. Climates can dramatically change from one day to the next.

3 Be prepared with your attire: It may seem obvious, but it doesn’t hurt to be extra prepared for the cold climate you’ll be staying in. Make sure your ski jackets, snow pants, ski gloves, goggles, etc. fit properly and will adequately protect you from the drastic temperatures.

4 Have important documents printed: Whether you’re indulging in a specific resort’s winter special, have online coupons for rental gear, lift pass and room rental confirmation tickets, and all necessary documentation printed out and ready before you leave. It’ll save time and headaches!

5 Pack the extras: Try to plan for unexpected hurdles, like aspirin, flu medicine, disposable cameras, etc. It also pays to pack snack food, power bars, water bottles and other amenities that will cost a fortune at the resort.

No Boot Shortage at Shopping Blitz

For most Americans this winter will go down in history. Before one storm can be cleared away another one lies in its wake, enter apropos nicknames like Snowmageddon and Snowpocalypse. No matter what you call it, it sucks and supplies normally fully in stock are dwindling. One such staple is the all-important winter boot.

winter 1978(image courtesy of The Daily Beast)

According to the New York Times as reported by Jezebel.com, “We are completely short, completely out of stock at this point,” said Brian Rosener, the manager of the Eastern Mountain Sports store at Broadway and 76th Street who has worked at the store on and off for 15 years. “This is the most thorough sell-through that I’ve seen.” Rosener also added “It’s been a tough winter to stay ahead of the curve. We’ve gotten very good at apologizing and finding other stores to get the products in.” The thought of all those East Coasters slogging through the rest of the winter without the proper footwear makes us sad. Luckily here at Shopping Blitz we are well stocked to keep feet warm and dry. winter boots
