In the winter I go up into the mountains where the temperature is anywhere from 0 degrees Fahrenheit to 12 degrees Fahrenheit.

I'm looking for a good heavy winter coat that will keep me warm.

Please provide me with a list of coats that will keep me warm in this kind of cold weather.

Columbia Sportswear makes quality jackets that are sold both on their web site and in "better" department stores.

Their jackets have a limited lifetime warranty and minor repairs such as buttons and zippers are done at no charge.

They are not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for.
