What reviewers liked

By far the cheapest winter coat on this list. In addition, you get ample storage with four large front pockets and one on the sleeve.
This CAT jacket is 100% polyester with a very heavy weight insulation. The hood is also lined with this same polyester lining and has an attached draw chord to lock in your warmth. Although, this hood can be removed altogether – all subject to your personal preference.
Adjustable cuffs with storm cuffs inside.
Even down to the finer details, this coat is a fantastic choice. There is reflective webbing on the front and back, meaning that during the short daylight hours of the winter you will still be seen. As the night comes, you will become increasingly visible, thanks to the webbing.
Inner and outer pockets for storage.
The zip of this hood is designed with microfleece and adjustable drawcord. Sure, the cord locks for versatility and warmth. Moreover, the two-way front zip and double storm flaps with snap closures are convenient for ultimate protection.
It has reflective and windproof strips.
The pure polyester materials keep you protected from high winds and cold temperatures, making it the Caterpillar Men’s Heavy Insulated Parka the perfect option for cold winters.
