I've been a Floridian for 23 yrs (in Daytona beach area) and I'm honestly not familiar with the coat you're talking about...but i can say that I've never owned or need anything heavier than a zip up hoodie. If it's "really cold" here i do a long sleeve shirt with a t shirt over it then a hoodie. Baby legs under thin jeans. But by noon I'm stripping kids down to t shirts and pants. We never have hats, gloves, scarves..etc either. It just doesn't get cold...or stay cold!
