Winter coats

Do you have just one winter coat, or do you have more than one for different degrees of cold?

I just spent about a month looking for a new winter coat. Since my weight loss I had to replace mine, and it took a long time. Anyway ... I bought a short ski jacket at Walmart for zero to about 40 degrees, and a friend gave me a long down coat for the really cold stuff. I like having the two jackets because sometimes it's cold, but not cold enough to need a long coat.

I have fewer winter coats than I did when I lived in a cold climate, but still own several.

I have several jackets because I dress in layers.

I'm not a fan of coats; luckily, I live in the deep South, so I don't have to dress for freezing weather too often. I have a denim duster that I love and since I tend to dress in layers anyway, it served me well enough for trips to New York City in December and January.
