I just got an old (looks brand new) LL Bean Baxter State Parka thats wool lined (my down one is to warm for this weather). I've always heard about how warm these things are but I wore it today and while my legs were freezing, the parts the coat were covering were tolerably cool. I think the only reason they weren't as cold as my legs is because the coat stopped the wind totally so the wind chill wasn't freezing me. I want to be toasty warm! The coat is so light its hard to believe it could keep me warm but I've heard for years how nice they are and I finally snagged one but now I'm wondering if its going to leave me out on the cold, literally.
Also, wool makes me itch, I figured no problem since I'll always have on a long sleeve shirt, I kinda forgot my neck will be exposed, any suggestions beyond turtle necks or scarfs?
