I'm a rather impractical winter dresser. I've been known to wear five-inch heels on commutes in the snow and I've never owned a proper winter coat — one that's made to wear in wet and windy conditions and actually built to keep me warm. And just as the lockdowns of 2020 began to sway me away from fashion-first wardrobe choices and toward those driven by comfort and practicality, I was introduced to Triple F.A.T Goose — and now I can have both.
Triple F.A.T. Goose has been making outerwear "for arctic temperatures" since 1987, applying an extra batch of Goose down filling in every one to make them thicker, warmer, and more effective than most other outerwear brands. They became immediate hits for customers living in extremely cold urban areas especially, and I'm happy to now call myself one such urbanite.

Upon first trying on the Estelle Coat, I noticed an immediate feeling of comfort rather than heat, as though I was being swaddled rather than suddenly stuck in a furnace. The coat's hydrophobic coating looks and feels luxurious, but truly surprised me with how effective it was when I stepped outside into this year's winter storm. When I tossed on the hood, I was instantly able to enjoy the snow in a way I'd never been able to before: with comfort.
