I've been researching deep winter puffers. I'll be wearing the puffer to work, and on errands. I have a ski jacket for more intensive activities.

This year, I would like to *stand out* By wearing a non-black, clear (bright) colour.

I came up with the Marmot Montreal coat (shorter) and the Marmot Montreaux (longer-red) which retail for under $300 (a great price!). I've decided I don't want to spend too much on a puffer because the more expensive ones do not bring me much more joy than the cheaper ones.

- Is a white puffer a terrible idea? I'm not messy but still. I also like the blue. The red one is longer and also comes in the blue.

Also--Do you know what type of bag would go with a puffer? I like Angie's leopard bag with the white coat, but does it work with the blue? I am concerned about mixing dressy things with gear. I don't mind moving to all gear for winter. I also have my trusty navy bag.

Any opinions or wisdom?
