Wool, unless coated with Scotchgard or some other fabric protectant will absorb a lot of moisture and may even warp. However, it will stay relatively warm, so if you have a cheap jacket that you wear more for its warmth, don’t be afraid. A nylon puffer would probably be a bit more practical (and lightweight), especially if you aren’t used to dealing with cold.posted about 7 years ago

i’m from cali too and i know the feeling. been to new york during winter break when i was in school and i say, invest in layers…turtlenecks, thermals, long underwear, thick socks, mittens, scarves…the whole nine yards. wool because it’s warm and it looks nice. i’m not a fan of puffers….if anything, i’d bring a raincoat to fight the snow/rain while wearing thick warm sweaters underneath.posted about 7 years ago
Wool is awesome, because it’s classic and it is one of the only materials that still locks in warmth when wet. Puffers tend to be just bulky; unless you’re really doing a snow sport (sledding, skiing, etc) wool will get you through everything. And I agree with oyitsjess; layers!posted about 7 years ago
