Thank you everyone!

I too love down jackets, but unfortunately with having to open and close barbed wire gates all day I am scared of poking holes in a down jacket. Most down coats/jackets I have owned have never had a tough outer to keep from the stuffings from coming out and looking like a half plucked chicken if they get ripped. I do wear a down vest under my coat but I broke the zipper on it yesterday *sigh*

I do wear a lot of layers- thermal shirt, long sleeved shirt, a hoodie or wool sweater(depending on how cold it is), a down vest and a coat. I am trying to lighten the load some..LOL!

I used to wear Carhartt coats but started to hate to them. The last one I had was a chore coat. It was a little long and the back of it would always get hung on my cantle and it was heavy. I will look at them again though :)

I also looked at the Mountain Horse coats, this one in particular- http://www.mountainhorseusa.com/outerwear/mountain-horsemountain-rider-jacket-302111
But I have never seen one in person.
Looking at some of the ski jackets too.
I used to have a snowmobile jacket-very warm, but they are so stiff!

Thanks again!

Carhartt. Carhartt. Carhartt. Carhartt. I look forward to going back to the mainland....where theres seasons....and snow....just so I can wear my carhartt.

And its one of the only jackets that lasts for ever. Everything else falls apart but I've had the same carhartt for 11 years.

I usually wear smartwool next -to-the-skin long johns with a pair of cotton leggings and cotton T-neck over them, then a wool sweater and insulated bib overalls. There is a nice fitting brand, Lady Berne.

I have a Carharrt but I don't like riding in it. For one it's not very attractive and for another is big and bulky. I ski so when I get a new ski jacket the old one becomes my barn jacket. Ski jackets are warm and give you a full range of motion. I'm not kind to my clothes but Orage brand jacket has never failed me skiing or riding.

What about an Oilskin Coat?

I used to have an old greatcoat, personally. Boy, do I miss that thing. It was impervious to wind, rain, and snow. It was wool, too, so nice and warm. Didn't hurt that it looked pretty snazzy!

Last year for Christmas, I got an Milwaukee electric jacket. Love, love, love it! When it's really cold outside, I simply wear a thin long sleeve shirt under the jacket, turn "on" the jacket, and then put a thicker winter coat over the top to lock in the heat.

Yep, I used to have one very similar to that one. And like Roperchick said, it had lasted me quite awhile- 5 years? Pretty good for me, my work coats never last more than a year or two!

I love my bib overalls for feeding cows in the winter! But I can't stand to ride in them. I will still look at that brand since my Walls bibs are worn out though :)

I have never owned one of those, the closest I ever used was the old-school "tin coats"(I think Filson still sells them) that loggers use in wet weather. I love that they are dang near indestructible, wind and water proof but so stiff in cold weather I could hardly maneuver in it.

An electric coat? What??? Never heard of such a thing! Is it battery operated or rechargeable? Crazy!

I like my full length oilskin coat with the lining, but it rarely gets cold enough in GA to need the lining, the rare occasion it gets to 10 degrees, I still will sweat in it with the lining

It is great in the rain too

Check out Duluth Trading. They have great products (love their shirts) for women who are outdoors. I bought my last barn coat from them. It has an inside pocket, hand pockets with fleece and outer pockets that close. A detachable hood. Zips from the bottom so you can provide relief in the saddle without losing heat.

It's a heavier style coat, but washes really nice and is warm.

Duluth may have something you are looking for. I recommend them.
