It's also a great standalone jacket come early spring.

I don't care if the we're going to have an early spring. It's still winter and it's still cold out there (and besides, the groundhog is usually wrong). You could hole up inside for the rest of the season, ignoring the world and staying warm in the process, but that wouldn't be great for your social life. Also, you'd probably get fired, which seems like a bad way to play things. Instead, get yourself a warm, layerable coat that'll keep you super cozy until the vernal equinox and still serve you well once things warm up a big. Uniqlo's Ultra Light Down jacket fits the bill perfectly.
Down is very warm, and this jacket is filled with down. Therefore, this jacket is very warm. That's the transitive property in action, folks. (Well, not really, but just go with it.) But you already knew down was warm, right? Well, this particular down jacket is also designed to stand up to the elements, thanks to a water-resistant finish on the nylon shell. That means you can get caught in the rain without getting bogged down by a soaked jacket, which is always handy.

Throw a waterproof shell over it in the worst of weather and you'll be fully shielded from the elements while keeping your core temperature up. Just an extra-cold commute to the office? Slide into an overcoat with the down jacket underneath it. It's a little tech, a little trad, and as warm as you could possibly need (unless you're commuting through the Arctic Circle).

Because it's so light and compact, you can pack it down and stash it in your bag or the back of your car, then grab it only when you need it. Later in the season, just wear it on its own. And don't worry about the occasional spring shower. Remember: it's built for that.
