Type of Coat Needed


#1

Hi everyone,

I’m heading on my first overseas trip ever in my life, so I’ve been seeking all kinds of advice. My most serious question so far is about what kind of coat I will be needing.

I am leaving on the Winter Expedition Trip (which travels around Europe) on the 20th of Dec, ending on the 16th Jan, with a week in London beforehand. I have lived in South East Queensland, Australia practically my whole life and I’m cold bug even here, so I’m not sure what kind of coat I’m going to need. I want something that will protect me from the wind, keep me warm and is also (at least) slightly waterproof.

I found this coat (http://www.raysoutdoors.com.au/Product/Outdoor-Expedition-3-in-1-Jacket-Womens/40273201?menuFrom=2147483639), which I don’t think is too bad but I’m unsure and would really like someone with more experience to give me their opinion. Should I go with this (or something similar) or should I be opting for something else entirely? My budget is really only $200 AUD TOPS!

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance,
