It's 20 degrees here in NYC, though with the wind, it feels a little south of -15. Yup, winter has finally arrived, folks. If you haven't already done so, it's time to take all your winter clothes out of storage. That means pulling out your winter coats and jackets. You can try to get by with a bunch of layers—thermal, flannel, hoodie, down vest—but there are gonna be days when it's so cold it feels like the wind cuts through all your layers and you have to focus most of your energy on not shivering?

In our December/January issue, we highlighted four of our favorite types of winter jackets, but, as it goes when you pick the best, they were all pretty damn pricey. This go around, we're bringing you 12 of the best winter jackets under $500. So even if your pockets are light after all the holiday shopping, you can still afford at least one of them.
