I will be traveling to New York City in February from Australia and as such have little experience in winter jackets and coats. I have recently bought a down jacket which I saw on sale in anticipation of the freezing winter conditions but can always return it if it's not suitable. I don't really understand whether the 'features' of the jacket will stand up to a New York winter. It is Teflon coated, water and wind resistant and has insulation of 255G 550 Fill Power Premium 80/20 Down. However I am a little concerned that it is only buttoned and has no zipper and therefore may suffer from the wind?
This is the jacket which I bought: penfield.com/mens/jackets/fw13-mens-eska-navy
It is a 'snug' fit, but I am able to fit a t-shirt and a jumper underneath it.
Any advice as to whether this would do the job would be greatly appreciated!
