We know a thing or ten about winter jackets for extreme cold, so if you're in the market for a new one, you've landed on the right page. Winter is less than a month away, after all (this year, it officially starts on Dec. 21), and we suggest scooping up one of our top picks when it comes to super warm outerwear: the REI Co-op Norseland insulated parka 2.0 ($199; $119). Not only is it a favorite of PureWow readers (who've been buying it up and left and right this season), it's also on sale—finally! Yes, you read right, the best-selling down jacket is currently marked down to $119 (that's $80 off, people), so now is the time to pounce.

It comes in five muted colors, so there's no question whether it'll fit right into your warm and chic winter capsule wardrobe. Fashion aside, though, this guy really holds up in the "function" department. Its nylon shell features a durable, water-repellent coating that can keep you dry in light rain and snow, while the extended, slightly oversized fit provides ample coverage of your bum and thighs. And if you're planning some outdoor adventures this winter, you'll also love that its lightweight 650-fill-power-down insulation should keep you nice and warm without restricting movement, according to buyers.

Here's what one reviewer has to say after wearing this parka in *Alaska*: "It has been one of the best winter jackets I have ever purchased. The mobility was amazing for winter activities and the jacket was perfect for layering, which, as a plus-size girl, has been a struggle with other jackets."


Shoppers love the cozy, fleece-lined hood that snaps up under the chin, not to mention the storm flap at the front, which snaps closed to block out the wind in your path. As for the zippered handwarmer pockets and internal chest pockets? Reviewers say they're deep enough to fit hats, phones and more, so you can keep all your essentials on hand.

We can keep going, but since we know this jacket won't stay in stock for long at less than $150, we won't hold you up any longer—trust, you're going to want to grab it before the next snowfall.
