Sporto Long Coat
Sporto® Quilted Long Coat with Removable Hood, #373-625.
Is this coat warm enough for midwest, Illinois, winter? I’m talking about blowing winds and temperature 25 – 30 degrees.
I like the style; hood, length, belt. But all that doesn’t matter if coat isn’t warm.
Tiamo..gosh that sounds cold. I think 2 of our posters are from your area . We can wait and see what they add. Did you read reviews ? At times the video has great info.
STAY WARM, AND MERRY CHRISTMAS BB
Hi, Tiamo – while I don’t live in your northern climes, I do have the jacket/shorter version of this coat. It is warm, and the nylon fabric works as a nice wind breaker, however…it is surprisingly thin/lightweight. Works for me here in TX, but Illinois? I’m just not sure. Hopefully, as BB said, one of our Northern Girls will respond. :womanvery-happy:
you do mean 25-30, not -25-30, right? I do not have that coat but I cannot imagine it would not be good enough for tmps like those, with a good enough base under it – sweater, warm pants, good scarf and hat.
went and checked again. It’s just poly fill. It will be all right for warmer days – like in the around 30 but it cannot be your only winter coat, you still need the good old goose down jacket for when it goes colder.
Oh no…….I didn’t mean 25 below zero. Burrrrrrrr. If I lived in that kind of temperature, I wouldn’t come out ’til spring thaw :smileylol: .
Living here you learn to layer. But I want my coat to do it’s job too.
I had a down coat. After washing, I was always picking feathers from the coat. So I’m not keen on down coats. Maybe I’ll have to buy another one. Guess picking feathers is a trade off for warmth :smileysad:.
I don’t have this particular one I do have a long one that I bought last year. It definity was not warm enough for NYC weather I had to layer or wear some type of light jacket under it. I would invest in a 100% down coat I’ve had them in the past and they can’t be beat for cold weather.
Tiamo2, did you ever find the wool/cashmere coat you were looking for on that other thread you started around Dec.1? I saw that you had quite a few responses to your asking for help in locating one, but I never saw a follow-up post by you to those who gave you some tips on finding that long coat.
