Winter has officially arrived as of December 21, the Winter solstice, and with that the need for warm jackets!
Living in the True North we all know that the only jacket that is going to keep us warm on the cold winter days is without a doubt a down jacket. Despite knowing what it is we need to stay warm, knowing where to buy it from or how much to spend is always a challenge when shopping for the right jacket.
With the temperature being -20C these past couple of weeks the need of a down jacket has gone from’want’ to ‘must’ in just a few days. With the Down Jacket becoming a necessity to stay warm on these cold winter days is why I decided to create a review and share my insight of overall style and functionality to help you choose the right Down Jacket for you.
I have tried to keep the styles as close to each other as possible while showing the variety in style and shape at different price points available at the various retailers for you to compare. Have to say that there was a huge gap in price with the most affordable one being just below $200 and the most expensive one just below $1,000, however the majority of the jackets fell between the $300 to $500 mark.
Here are my top six selections and do check out my Sheyda’s Pick – Down Jackets video, linked here below, to see my reviews and my final pick. Which Down Jacket did you decide to buy this Winter and why?
