Best 8 coats for surviving another frigid Canadian winter

by Marie-Sarah Published on November 18, 2015

Let’s not kid ourselves. Most of the country will soon be plunged in sub-zero temperatures and there’s nothing we can do about it, except to stay as warm as we can, starting with a warm winter coat. Here are our top picks for warmth, style and, in most cases, affordability.

Fjällräven — Women's Sarek Winter Jacket

We really like this comfy winter coat because it’s long enough to cover your buns and comes in a pretty and original shade of burnt orange (Automn Leaf).

Patagonia — Women's Stormdrift 3-in-1 Parka

This super-warm parka actually features two layers (you only wear the bottom layer when it’s milder). At once chic and sporty, its recycled polyester fabric also makes it eco-friendly. Love it!

L.L. Bean — Wind Challenger Down Jacket

This short coat for sports enthusiasts is very affordable and will keep you warm even when the thermometer dips to -40 degrees Celsius! Perfect for snow-boarding or skiing.

Aritzia — Pearce Wool Coat

On the other end of the spectrum is this sleek classic duffle coat. In fact, this particular model has become such a bestseller at Aritzia that it’s now sold every year, although we’re told that the hood from the 2015-2016 version has been improved!

Orage — Women's Riya Jacket

Orage has a stellar reputation when it comes to sporty winter jackets. We like the look for a day in the country or the city and the hemline, which falls just below the buttocks for added warmth.

J. Crew — Chateau Parka In Stadium-Cloth

For those who aren’t afraid of colour, J. Crew gives you more than enough to choose from with this parka, which comes in nine different shades.

Penfield — Women's Kelsey Down Insulated Duffle Jacket

Having tried on this duffle jacket myself, I can assure you that it delivers equal measures of style and warmth. Its thickness makes it impervious to the coldest wind gusts!

Mackage — Juliann Navy Lux Down Parka With Fur Hood

While on the pricier side, Mackage parkas, which are made in Montreal, manage a rare feat: not only are they incredibly warm but they’re also incredibly stylish! We fell in love with this oh-so-chic parka, which is well worth the price if you can afford it.
