The best of both worlds.
The Columbia Women's Powerfly Hybrid Down Jacket uses heat-holding down insulation to keep where you need it while flexible, breathable panels help your body regulate its temperature. This jacket is great for frigid morning ascents or under a shell when storms are in store.
- Nylon ripstop is lightweight, packable, and slides easily under a shell
- Breathable Heat Thermo Stretch panels under the arms are flexible to support maximum range of motion and reduce bulk for easy layering under a shell
- Omni-Shield advanced repellency treatment sheds moisture so you stay dry longer
- 800-fill down offers an extremely high warmth-to-weight ratio to insulate against freezing temps
- Omni-Heat warmth-reflecting lining helps stop body heat from escaping
- Comfort cuffs and drawcord hem seal out cold air
- Dropped tail keeps your backside covered

Totally solid "not-puffy" puffy coat
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Lightweight, slimming, not bulky. I tend to run on the chilly side, so this did not keep me super warm on below 30-deg days. It has side panels for ventilation and temperature regulation, which is really nice for me when I am frequently switching in and out of frigid outdoor to warm indoor environments, whereas a traditional full puffy down coat would probably overheat me. It comes with a little cinch baggie, and I took it on a New Year's trip from NY to Costa Rica and it rolled up and packed up so nicely, very convenient. Fits true to size; I wear S to M. I got an S and I can still wear it comfortably with a medium-thick sweater underneath.
Hi, I'm going to NYC/Boston this winter...
Hi, I'm going to NYC/Boston this winter and I was thinking of using this jacket with a fleece underneath, can someone help me to determine if this combination will stand -10 C? if extreme I would also add a wool sweater.
Normally I'm very cold, and I'm not planning heavy activities, only the walking involved in sightseeing
this will be amazing in those temperatures. What makes it a hybrid is the stretch panels on the sides, making it slim in silhouette as well as for layering. For the coldest times, I would suggest using this as a layering piece under a shell.
HOW MUCH WILL THE SIDE PANELS STRETCH?...
HOW MUCH WILL THE SIDE PANELS STRETCH? WANT A JACKET THAT WILL GROW WITH MY PRENANCY
that's a tough one to answer and equally as dangersous. It has stretch for mobility and weather resilience that limits that stretch. There is a wild variation in stretch needs with pregnancy and how it's carried. My wife went straight out the front with our second, and out... er... everywhere with our first. In short, it gives you room to roam and likely not for the entire pregnancy
