A recent study published in the journal Nature, claims that in a mere 34 years, winter as we know it in Canada, will disappear.

While we wait to see if these alarming findings will come to past in the next three decades, Old Man Winter continues to blow through in this country coast to coast. So if there’s one thing Canadians will continue to need, it is a warm coat.

We bring you three outerwear garments for various archetypes that will help keep the chill at bay – well, for the foreseeable future anyway.

For the Urbanite
With a high performance membrane that is wind-proof and waterproof – it’s fully taped at the seams to keep water out and has thermal lining insulation – this is a stylish durable urban coat that is perfect for city dwellers and works from office to weekend. G-Lab coat, $795, Harry Rosen

For the Travelling Business Women
Travelling with a bulky winter coat can be a hassle. Montreal retailer Laura introduces a down-filled puffy coat in an array of stylish colours that can easily be rolled into a ball for easy packing. They also come with a self-contained pouch or a matching messenger bag for easy carrying or storage. Packable lightweight down coat, $150-$255, Laura

For the Outdoors Enthusiast
The Fjallraven Polar parka was designed for dog sledding in Arctic climates but perfect for Canadian outdoor pursuits like ice fishing, hunting and hiking. Downfilled and waterproofed, it’s a pullover anorak style – no lengthy zip down the front to allow air in – its generous shape also features large fleece lined kangaroo pockets to hold any sort of bulky items you might need for a day outdoors.
