Turn up the heat.
Ever wished you had a thermostat you could just turn up whenever you got cold in the mountains? Well, the Columbia Women's Heatzone 1000 Turbodown Hooded Jacket is that thermostat. Insulated with both 800-fill down and synthetic insulation, the Heatzone 1000 offers exceptional heat on the coldest days. And if that wasn't enough, Columbia went ahead and took it a step further by lining the jacket with a heat-reflective material, so your body heat is re-directed back toward you, so you stay even warmer. Since all that warmth isn't going to do you much good if you're wet, the Heatzone has a two-layer waterproof, breathable shell at the arms and hood and is treated with a water-resistant finish along the nylon body. The goose down is also treated to make it resistant to a little moisture, too.
The Heatzone 1000 really shines while skiing and snowboarding, but will work great when you need something warm to wear when you're hiking or camping. The hood is compatible with skiing and snowboarding helmets, and the pocket configuration consists of two hand pockets, a zippered pass pocket, and an internal security pocket for anything you need to keep close to the chest. The hems and cuffs are fully adjustable, and the entire jacket can be stuffed in the one of the hand pockets when you need to bring the jacket along on one of your mountain adventures.

Might work on a runway...

Ordered two coats to try out --the Columbia Heatzone and the Rab Infinity. I'm looking for the warmest, lightest coat I can manage on my budget, and they were both touted as extremely warm, and both were on sale. In the few minutes I had this on in the house, I didn't feel noticeably warmer, like I did when I tried on the Infinity or when I have on my LL Bean Down windproof jacket (which is really too heavy and bulky for backpacking). To be fair, I'm not able to say how warm this coat would be outside, because the front of it looks much more shiny than the photo above -- more like a super greasy trash bag, and there's no way I would pay this much money to wear what looks like a trash bag, even if it were the warmest, lightest coat in the entire world.
best coat ever

I love this coat. It is warm, lightweight, incredibly comfortable, moves really well when skiing, and looks great.

Does this coat have hand/wrist gaiters?
How is it 900-fill down when the specs are written "800-fill down". Confused..........
This jacket has 900 fill water-resistant goose down insulation. We will get that updated in the description. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.
