Choosing the right flannel jacket can mean the difference between being comfortable or freezing during the chilliest months of the year. But not all flannels are the same. Consider the materials, features and design when searching for your best choice.
Deciding what kind of flannel you want starts with the materials, inside and out! Read more below to learn about some of the different options so you can pick the best choice for you.
Flannel can be made from different materials. Cotton flannel jackets are popular because they’re soft to the touch and can be either heavy or more lightweight, depending on what you’re looking for.
But there are also other options, like polyester. This material is great because it’s strong, flexible, it dries fairly quickly, and it does a good job resisting shrinking and wrinkling. Many jackets are cotton-polyester hybrids, or use one or the other specifically for the inner lining or exterior material.
If you already know you’ll be out in the cold for extended periods of time, you might want to opt for lining in your coat. Many jackets are lined with materials such as cotton or Berber (a fleece made from polyester yarn), and some are even quilted.
Cotton lining is great if you plan on really exerting yourself and breaking a sweat, as it’s such a breathable fabric. On the other hand, Berber and other types of polyester are great if you’re trying to stay warm, but are more concerned with comfort and smoothness than how well your lining handles moisture.
And, of course, if you’re planning on really enduring the elements—skiing, snowmobiling or whatever you enjoy—quilted linings are perfect for extremely powerful insulation.
When you're shopping for a flannel jacket, it's important to keep in mind how your choice will look, fit, and whether its specific features match your needs.
Take the weather you’ll be braving and what you’ll be doing in your jacket into account. You’ll have to decide if you prefer one that’s purposely made with an oversized fit that you can fit multiple layers under, or one that’s a little slimmer for aesthetic reasons or smoother movement.
Also, to trap and maximize your jacket’s heat, consider how long you want your cuffs to be, and if you’d prefer ones that are ribbed for a tighter, warmer fit. You can also opt for a ribbed waistband at the bottom of your jacket, a drawstring hood, and high or tighter-fitting collars to keep out the chill.
Many features can vary depending on the jacket you choose. Consider whether you’d prefer a zipper or button or snap closure, or a combination.
Many jackets also have adjustable features like cuffs that snap on and off. In addition, you can decide on how many pockets you want, for example double breasted, hoodie-style, or side seam; and whether you want a jacket with a hood or without.
