As the chilliest season falls upon us (for some, more than others), it’s time to pad your closet with cozy long johns, stylish sweaters, winter boots, and perhaps most importantly, warm winter coats.

Whether you stick faithfully to one coat throughout the entire season or stock up on a wide variety, it’s important to be prepared for whatever type of winter weather you’ll experience, wherever your travels may take you.

Below, we’ve rounded up a slew of coats of various styles; some have hoods, some have faux fur; some are all-function — think lightweight and ultra-packable — while some seamlessly wed fashion with utility. Heck, one even folds up neatly into a nifty airplane neck pillow.

This season, save yourself some money and take a look at these options to find the best winter coat that will suit your temperature and travel needs.
