During the cold season, the most important piece of outfit from a men’s wardrobe is the jacket.
If you are limited by a low budget then you have to pay an extra attention to this aspect.
Below you may find some interesting winter jackets under 500$:
This is a lightweight jacket that gives you a high movement freedom. It has zipper closure and is made of high quality fabrics.
With great Sherpa insulation, this winter jacket can be a great option. It is very soft and not a all scratchy or itchy on bare skin. It has two inside pockets and left chest pockets with zipper closure.
With four exterior pockets and two interior ones, it has plenty of space to deposit a lot of things.
This is a great and versatile jacket. You actually have three jackets: the outer shell, the inner puff and then you can zip them together to have a coat.
With flap pockets on the hips, with side-entry zippered pockets on the chest, this jacket offers you plenty of space besides comfort and warmth.
This is a great winter jacket with great versatility. It has a multitude of pockets to provide you plenty of storage space. The exterior of the jacket is made of some kind of light, woven polyester, which seems pretty durable while also being very soft to the touch and flexible (great touching sensation despite of the durability).
Notice that they are fabric cuffs on the inside of the inner jacket, a lot like what you’d find on a hooded sweatshirt, that should help seal off the arms from breezes. There’s an elastic cinch at the bottom of the inner jacket that seals the body off.
Worth to say that the down insulation seems pretty substantial. I think the coat should be more than warm enough for hard winters.
Regarding the good its zips off and very nice insulated.
