I had a lovely karrimor puffer coat last winter. Like a duvet but didn't make me look like Michelin man. Sadly badly made so not lasted from last season to this.

Where can I get a smart replacement? Preferably online as I hate shopping!!!!

The North Face Metropolis parka which is super warm and great quality but is £££
I've also got the Uniqlo stretch parka which is lovely too - warm, lightweight reasonable £ and a tenner off at the moment

I bought the Aigle Cuckmerry coat recently and am really happy with it. It's warm and has a belt which gives a nice cinched in waist. It's expensive but worth the money.

Bought the aigle coat on the countryattire website. Their customer service was very good and the delivery was quick.

Berghaus have some nice long and mid length ladies down coats

I've got one similar to the Brantome - worn it every day for the past two winters and its in good nick

I bought the long down coat mentiined above from Uniqlo last year and it has been fantastic. Mine is a plummy burgundy. Currently on sale!

These are de rigeur in many parts of Spain so Zara and Mango, particularly Zara, are your friends.

Or, if you can come across to Spain to shop, there's a much wider range in the shops here than in the U.K.

I've got a Moncler which I recommend highly, it's so comfortable (never sweaty), so warm yet lightweight, and it's lasted a long time so I'm getting my money's worth.

Thanks ladies. The Zara website is very uninspiring. I'm sure my sil got one at Zara but as I'm shopping online it looks like I'm out of luck!

Thx bingo how warm is the uniqlo coat? Is it warm enough for the recent minus 6 temperatures hitting the uk?

Cotswold Outdoors have a flash sale on Columbia (US outdoorsy brand)!thus week end. There are a couple of long down coats which could be contenders, at good prices.

I have this one from Uniqlo (the warmer, fake fur trimmed version) and it was fine in -20C yesterday - I'm in snowy Scandinavia. But I have also worn it in on 0...5C weather and during light rain. Not too hot. Great buy.

I have this one from Zara

It's like wearing a duvet - it makes the cold mornings so much easier! I've talked about it so much that one of my friends and 2 of my colleagues have bought it blush!

I'm outside through the whole school year for about four hours a day - I've got a knee length Marmot coat which is amazing. Recommend looking at the outdoor brands rather than high st fashion ones, there's some quite stylish ones!

One of these or these from Mango?

If you want really warm, the North Face one is the business. The uniqlo is good but personally I'd probably wear my other uniqlo lightweight down under it if it was -6!

This Barbour coat is really warm and fits quite slim.

We got it as a gift for mil and she said it was warmer than her uniqlo one she'd bought.

bojorojo Sun 08-Jan-17 14:57:22

Moncler if you are seriously minted! If not, Barbour, Aigle, Jaeger, Mountain Equipment, Berghaus, North Face, Canada Goose etc

MindfulBear Tue 10-Jan-17 09:18:56

Yay!!! Maws that is the one from Zara my sil has and I was looking for!!

Thank you smile

Now the question is.... black or navy?!

There are some nice ones on the Lands End website at the moment and depending on the day of the week they are reduced. I've just bought a lightweight down coat from them that's great, warm, waterproof and can be stuffed in to a large pocket if I need to carry it. I use it at sporting events if it's cold and alternate with the Squall Coat I bought from them a few years back which is very waterproof.

sammy891 Sat 14-Jan-17 23:11:19

There is this bennetton one on sale at the moment.

MindfulBear Sun 15-Jan-17 23:16:19

I got the Zara one in navy. Love it smile
So dark it might as well be black so is perfect for me.
