Hey Hart Beat. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving wherever you spent it! I came home to The Berkshires this holiday season and was pleasantly surprised by a huge snow storm that we had on Wednesday and Thursday. The town is completely blanketed in snow and my parent’s house lost power all Wednesday night and Thursday morning!
What this time at home has proved to me is how little I want to mess around this year with the cold weather. As my favorite friends from Norway once said, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.” This winter my fabulously fashionable boyfriend introduced me to a brand that I could not recommend more for winter wear.
Alpha Industries has been around since the 1950’s and makes affordable military grade cold weather gear. Traditionally, the company made flight gear but this year marks their 55th anniversary so there is an entire line of new, contemporary designs on their website. I got the N-38 Women’s Winter Parka for this year and to be honest, I haven’t really taken it off since getting it. The coat has a fleece lined hood, keeps you warm in subfreezing conditions and has breast pockets to keep your hands warm. Just imagine this trendy Madewell coat but less expensive and military grade to keep you really warm.
So if you want to find an incredibly warm coat but don’t want to break the bank, I’ve found the jacket you’re looking for!
