    I live in Georgia so I’m usually just in a sweatshirt during the winter. Coats aren’t really necessary.

    It really depends, NC weather is weird. If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change!

    On normal cold days that I need a jacket, I have a light North Face jacket that I wear or I will wear hoodies. On super cold days, like when we had the snow and ice back in January, I have a purple Carhartt that is warm and wonderful! I just got a pea coat from Old Navy that will be awesome for when I need to be more ‘dressy’.

    It’s MN so it depends on the weather. Anywhere from 60-40 I wear a vest with a faux fur hood. 40-10 I wear a thigh length wool peacoat and under 10 I wear a calf length down coat. I level up my hats, gloves, and scarves accordingly as well. I commute on foot and spend at least a half hour outside everyday so my winter gear is a bit more intense than someone who drives everywhere.

    I wear multiple coats but I chose short pea coat for the poll. I also have a snowboarding jacket that I wear in the snow because it’s waterproof. I also have a NorthFace jacket I wear if it’s not suuuper cold out.

    Miami Bee here! No “winter coat” needed . I do have a pea coat that goes to my bum for when I travel in the winter, however I’m not sure if it’s considered long or short.

    azzie17:  If a wool coat doesn’t keep you warm enough, a puffer (with real or synthetic down feather) will keep you warm. I can wear my puffer when it’s -40C, with a sweater underneath, and I will not feel cold at all. I think if the weather is not that cold in your area, synthetic material will do the job (ex.: parka with synthetic down. Many are fitted so you don’t end up looking like a big marshmallow 😛 ). However, living in northern Canada, it’s not enough to keep me warm. Every winter-related item I own is made with down feather, leather, sheep wool (in boots and gloves especially). The reason is synthetic material doesn’t ”breathe”, so it keeps the humidity inside your boots, gloves and so forth. I live in a very humid climate, and humidity+intense cold = extreme discomfort and freezing.

    If it’s just lin 40-50s, a classic camel hairs coat. Or a down jacket

    30s or so, a goose down coat or jacket

    below 30s a fur coat.

    My North Face. Not sure which choice that would be. And on those really cold days, it would have to be my long puffy jacket that’s oh so warm.
