Moment of silence for all of my cute feathered things.
So now, I'm on the hunt for a feather-free winter coat. Why? Because I'm traveling to Chicago and Pittsburgh mid-November for work and need a warm one. I have a wool peacoat and a fleece peacoat but neither of these are warm enough. Also, I'm beginning to be anti-wool. It makes me skin itch like crazy and makes my hair static-y. Plus, it's kind of good just to have a very warm coat that isn't a fashion coat. You know what I mean?
As I perused The Internets I was surprised at the number of down-free coats I found! I was thinking I may have a total of 2 options but I found quite a few! Below are some of my favorite down alternative, non-wool winter coats.
1. L.L. Bean
3. The Northface (on sale!)
4. Lands End (on sale!)
5. L.L. Bean
6. Lands End
I ended up going with #4 the Lands End Primaloft quilted parka. I like the shape of it and it's not too puffy. The final verdict will be when I actually receive it, so stay tuned!
