Built for everyday life and backcountry adventures.
The Sierra Designs Women's DriDown Jacket functions well both around town and in the backcountry thanks to its casual looks and high-performance materials. The fabric of the DriDown is a rich looking polyester, nylon heathered material that looks great on the street, but is also treated with a water-resistant finish for enhanced functionality on the trail and around the campfire. For warmth, the DriDown is insulated with a hydrophobic down insulation that provides a great warmth-to-weight ratio, but will resist wetting out if you happen to get caught in the rain. Sierra Designs built this jacket to deliver all the function you need when you're in the backcountry with a look that works equally well when you need something to wear during your day-to-day life.

The Best Lightweight Insulation Layer!
This Sierra Designs DriDown Sweater Jacket is a favorite of mine! With Sierra Designs using DriDown for this sweater jacket, even if this sweater jacket gets somewhat wet, it still keep you warm unlike regular down. That is huge! As always Sierra Designs has kept it real with their craftsmanship of this sweater jacket, materials used and functionality. It is a fitted fit which I like as I use this under my hard shells. This Sierra Designs DriDown Sweater Jacket has thumb holes so what I have done is use them and throw on gloves and you have complete protection from the elements! This Sierra Designs DriDown Sweater Jacket barely weighs anything, packs up small and comes in a few different colors. Granted, with any down garment you have to expect it to leak out down, so that is the only pain in the ass thing I have had with this Sierra Designs DriDown Sweater Jacket. The price is below what the Outdoor Research Filament jacket I recent reviewed is, so I say go get you this Sierra Designs DriDown Sweater Jacket if you want a great down insulation jacket for backpacking or even around town. This is not a super puffy jacket, so keep in mind this is a mid sized on the warmth it can give you. But it was dramatically warmer then the Outdoor Research Filiment. Berz Rating: 93/100
