Wear the appropriate coat for the conditions outside. And, you don't want to be weighed down, 'cuz that is tiring. Cheap coats tend to be heavier. Imagine adding layers to that, and it gets cumbersome, and you'll also look fat.

If you get a thick coat it's very warm, just as warm as down. I have a LL Bean wool car coat that's super warm, but it is one of their heavier ones.

Woolrich brand. Nicer wool coats price range $800-1100 cad. Very warm. Id say temp range around -20 or so... max. Sporting life sells them. You can layer with any coat. That's up to you.

It's not just that the coat is wool (exterior), you need to consider whether the interlining (if one exists under the lining fabric) is warm or not. Try on different wool coats for weight/fit/preferences/do the sleeves move with your arms or is there a sewing problem?

Truth-I bought a $50 dress wool coat at a chain store-no interlining and it was fairly useless on a cold windy day while walking 20min or much longer. I think I wore it twice and it stayed in the closet until I donated it.
Ube pie-yum! It coordinates with Pantone's colour of the year for 2022.😃

I've mentioned here before that u can help winterize your wool coat by attaching a chamois to the inside back of your coat. What this does is help block out the wind. Quality woollen coats in the old days (eg. the '80s) had these. However, if the temps are crazy-freezing outside, wear down or fur.
