I purchased a North Aware coat last year and loved it:

Scroll down and you'll see all of the features on their main page:  https://northaware.com/

https://northaware.com/collections/men
https://northaware.com/collections/women

It's fully convertible, so if you're too hot, you can take things off, too cold, you can put things on.  For some of the styles, the bottom zips on and off so you can either have a long coat or a short coat, there are zippers in the sleeves with gloves inside, a built in "gator" - which is a piece of fabric that goes over your face and neck so you don't have to carry a scarf, a deep hood (which you can take off if you don't want it), a lining you can take out or put back in depending how much cold you're experiencing, and it's water proof.  It is a GREAT coat.

Nice. Not sure its long enough though. I couldn't see the 'bottom zips off' part anywhere.

Ok, TimothyEllis ..... Did you go to your "comic-con" thingie?
How did you find Austin?  They did have some very cold nights.
What did you decide on wearing and did you need the protection on the days that you were there?

Inquiring minds want to know......

No, I didn't in the end. The whole thing fell apart before I even started looking at airfares.

But I am off to London for the 20 Books London conference next week, where its going to be cold cold cold. An opportunity to pick Michael Anderle's brain.  ;D

I never did find a suitable overcoat, but I did find wool thermals.  :D
