Buying a great winter coat or jacket goes beyond seasonal trends and short-term fashion, they're designed to keep you warm, dry and comfortable when you're head-on against the cold weather. But outdoor layers have evolved throughout the years, moving in step with the latest fabric technologies to give you something that will really shield you from the elements.

Whether you're an avid countryside walker or outdoor worker, swirling winds, heavy rain and even snow are your greatest enemy, and you need an outdoor coat that can protect you from the elements while also serving a specific function or style to suit your event, activity or rigorous demand.
