Okay, y'all. I give up. What's a "big coat?" Google doesn't seem to understand my question. Do coats come with a temperature rating? How are you supposed to know which coats to buy for which climates?

It's the difference in the lining basically, thinner lining for like fall where it's chilly but not cold and winter coats with thicker lining for cold temperatures.

I have several that have zip-out liners. My favorites have the liners as stand-alone wear if you wish.

So the lining is where the down feathers are kept, and you just switch them out according to the seasonal needs.

What about a wool coat? Is that a "big coat" because it's wool, or does it also have a liner?

My strategy of ignoring my problems until they disappear never seems to work out for me. ...I'll try to get around to dealing with that in the near future.

"Big coat" is another way of saying dress to stay warm. It doesn't necessarily have to be big, it just has to keep you warm. But, like jdog said, a lot of that comes down to lining and fill so these coats do tend to be bulkier than other winter coats that might favor fashion over function.

As far as knowing which coat to buy for which climate, I'd probably start by asking people familiar with the climate for recommendations, and then tweaking from there based on results. Some coats might have temperature ratings, but I wouldn't rely on them since they I don't think they take things like wind, what else your wearing under the coat or natural insulation (aka body fat) into account. One person could be too hot and one person could be too cold in the same coat at the same temperature based on those other factors.

I grew up in the northeast and I've heard them called winter coats and heavy coats but never "big coats". If anybody told me to put on my big coat I'd look at them like they were crazy.

Never heard it called big coats either but it is pretty self explanatory.

The heaviest outerwear I own is a fleece jacket!

That' s also how the natives in Florida dress when the temperature dips down to 40f.
