Outdoor jackets and coats come in a few different types. Hooded jackets are often more popular where rain or high winds are expected. If you are wanting to keep extra warm then you want an outdoor jacket with a good down feather fill. Alternatively, try the synthetic version of outdoor jackets with primaloft or similar insulation. It's easier to maintain than a down jacket and can be just as warm. Most popular in mens outdoor jackets and coats are the micro down jackets. These are lighter and feature small horizontal baffles and are ideal all year around for light walking, hiking and wild camping.
