I am quite tall with giraffe arms. It is really hard to find a coat I can ride in during the winter, because the sleeves always come up to my elbows and I end up with frozen wrists. Does anyone know of a REALLY WARM riding coat (it gets very cold here!) with super-long sleeves? I am contemplating ordering a men's coat but hoping for something slightly more stylish. Something sturdy enough for barn chores would be an added plus! Thanks!

I really like the Men's Marinac jacket from Land's End.
It is a windproof fleece shell which does a surprising job of keeping a person toasty.
Mine is a simple black style.

I have added a men's down vest over the top of it on super cold days and ridden outside in the wind down to 19 degrees.
