Temperatures are sinking below zero. It’s time to change your mid-season coat to warmer one. When assisting customers we often hear questions “Is this coat really warm?”
Warmest coats have down insulation. Down is natural insulation: organic and ecological. Down is a fantastic insulator as the loft (or fluffiness) of down creates thousands of tiny air pockets which trap warm air and retain heat, thus helping to keep the wearer very warm in cold winter weather. High-quality down jacket is your long-life friend. Just remember to wash it regular as warm down insulates better than dirty.
Many brands have developed non-animal insulation featuring similar properties as down. Most of these faux-down polyester fibers are as warm and breathable as down.
